Some Celtic supporters have been biting back at Rangers’ statement from Monday.

The Ibrox club’s managing director Stewart Robertson laughably took to Facebook to go on about sporting integrity, as they stated that nothing should be awarded to clubs before 38 games have been played.

However, in addition to that, Robertson said in the statement that the Ibrox side doesn’t want to play games behind closed doors. They shamefully tried to use their supporters and their loyalty as the main reason for it.

As you would imagine, some Hoops fans have been laughing their heads off at the gall of it all. Here’s a look at some of the reaction from our support:

Rangers show a strong lack of appetite here

You can see why Rangers would be against handing out awards before 38 games of football have been played. It makes sense for clubs like themselves who are struggling to take this stance, and there’s some validity in it.

However, what makes this statement so embarrassing is the lack of appetite they have to finish the season. They flat out refuse to entertain the notion of games being played behind closed doors. Therefore, how would Rangers like it to be done?

They say that they won’t forget the loyalty of their supporters. Aye okay Rangers. What you really mean is that the cost of hosting matches at Ibrox will cost you financially and, since the league is next to over, it would also cost you another league title.

It’s a shameless act of putting pressure on the governing bodies to void the season. No doubt if the SFA/SPFL were to announce that games resumed in the near future, Rangers would be one of the first clubs trying to halt it.

Credit to them. It’s clever and their supporters will lap this kind of drivel up. But it’s not as if you expected them not to take a staunch stance on the matter.

All this has done, however, is make sure that winning the nine is even more sweeter when it comes around.
