Glasgow Rangers: Fans disagree with SPFL’s new five-substitute rule for Premiership matches

Glasgow Rangers: Fans disagree with SPFL’s new five-substitute rule for Premiership matches - Rangers News

A number of Glasgow Rangers have voiced their opposition to the SPFL’s decision to allow teams to introduce five substitutes in Premiership matches this season.

As reported by Daily Record and later posted by Raman Bhardwaj on Twitter (via @ramanbhardwajtv), the SPFL confirmed that top-flight clubs can name nine substitutes for matches and bring on five of those in a bid to help with players’ recovery time.

The decision was taken due to the season being condensed amid the global pandemic, which could put a strain on clubs’ squads (as per Daily Record). However, as with the latter weeks of the recently-completed English Premier League season, managers will only have three windows of opportunity in which to make substitutions and cannot bring on five players individually.

Although fans of some clubs have apparently complained that the decision would be of most benefit to the two main Glasgow sides, many ‘Gers supporters have had a thorny relationship with the SPFL after the club accused the organisation of corruption over their handling of the league resolution proposal and unsuccessfully lobbied for an independent inquiry into the authority.

These ‘Gers fans on Twitter took aim at the SPFL over their “daft” decision to introduce the five-substitute rule for the new Premiership season:
