Spirited Rangers fans start Celtic derby meeting countdown as Hearts are slapped with ‘feeder club’ tag – Hotline – Sports Hotline


Rangers fans reckons they have banished the Old Firm blues after hammering Hearts and they are already counting down the days to get their revenge over Celtic.

Ibrox punters were in the doldrums after the humbling by the Hoops but they believe their side is back in business after the five goal gubbing of the Gorgie men.

Jimmy NeilGlasgow said: “I’d like to thank Celtic for giving us that wake up call last Wednesday. Having Ryan Jack back playing alongside Aaron Ramsey, as champions we are going to play out of our skins to retain our title. Celtic may have won the battle, but we will win the war.”

Gordon HendryOchiltree said: “We got the reaction we wanted following the debacle of Wednesday night by simply blowing away one of the best defenses in the league with pace, power and aggression.

“We even managed a cameo from Aaron Ramsey, one of our best signings in a long time. Roll on the next Old Firm match at Ibrox.”

gers fan John DavidsonArmadale said: “We all know that the last Old Firm game wouldn’t decide where the destination of the title will be, but the next two derbies will certainly decide the outcome.

“Bring on April 3 at high noon.”

Rab Roberts, Bo’ness, said: “Hearts are an utter embarrassment to Scottish football, I appreciate they have a role being the official Rangers ‘feeder club’, but come on. Apart from the occasional draw they never give their best at Ibrox!

“When they face Celtic however it’s a completely different story, blood, thunder and over the top physicality is the order of the day.”

Celtic were slick as well as they mauled Motherwell to remain top of the table.

Colin McArdle, Lanarkshire, said: “This Celtic team are the best since the Lisbon Lions. They will win the Treble and become a major threat to all in the Champions League next season. Ange is right up there with the late great Jock Stein.”

Steady. More down to earth, David BryceTron said: “Another scintillating performance from Celtic. Abada, Hatate, Rogic, Ralston and Carter-Vickers were simply sensational whilst we had great cameos from O’Riley and Bitton. Well done, Bhoys.”


Elsewhere Stephen Glass is under fire at Aberdeen after losing to Livi.

Derek Hay, Fife, said: “Glass has to go and Dave Cormack can go with him. We have had enough.

“This is an old country act. AFC? More like Amateur FC.”

Andrew Lamb, Fraserburgh, said: “Quite simply, chairman Cormack, the Glass experiment hasn’t worked.

“The team lose and draw regularly, they can’t score, and only occasionally grind out wins,

“Add to that a rotten transfer window and, hey presto, bottom six.”

Francis Parker emailed: “Glass should ask Scotland’s rugby coaches how to train a team to win games, but it will be the usual talk from the manager, we played well etc, etc… give it a rest.”

Hugh McKirdy, via email, said: “I’m afraid one from Ross County, St Mirren and Livi will just not do. It’s not Glass half empty, it’s drained as far as I’m concerned. Bring back Del and Doc.”

Iain Allan, Linlithgow, said: “When is the Aberdeen board going to waken up and stop the rot? We are thousands behind Hearts and we’re in the bottom half of the table.

“Something has to be done now.”

There’s not much fun at Tannadice either as Dundee United fan Ronnie SwanLochee said: “I’d take Dick Campbell in a heartbeat and more than a few of his players to Tannadice.

“I will be watching the Red Lichties from now on.”
