Glasgow Rangers: Fans have mixed views in replies to Jordan Campbell article

Glasgow Rangers: Fans have mixed views in replies to Jordan Campbell article - Rangers News

An article from Jordan Campbell in The Athletic has prompted a mixture of replies from some of the Glasgow Rangers fan base.

The journalist made a case for Steven Gerrard not sacrificing a Europa League run in order to concentrate on the Premiership, pointing to the team’s strong record in domestic games immediately after European fixtures. He also emphasised that the run to the Europa League round of 16 last season accounted for more than 25% of the club’s overall revenue last year.

Naturally, some supporters fully backed Campbell’s view when seeing just how much the club gained financially from their prolonged run in Europe in 2019/20.

However, there were other ‘Gers fans who believe that the domestic league has to take priority over a European run this season. The Ibrox club are facing the unenviable prospect of not only going a full decade without winning a Premiership title, but also seeing arch-rivals Celtic complete an unprecedented 10-in-a-row.

Which competition is more important to Rangers this season?

Premiership

Premiership

Europa League

Europa League

Others made the point that, with the loss of gate receipts and other revenue streams from matches being played behind closed doors, a European run would not generate the same turnover that it did last season.

‘Gers fans, do the club need another strong European campaign for financial reasons or does the league need to take priority this year more than ever? Join in the discussion by commenting below!
