Glasgow Rangers’ preparations for the 2020/21 campaign are well underway.
The Ibrox outfit have already been to France and left with a pre-season trophy – the ‘Gers won the Veolia Trophy, in which Celtic also participated, after beating Lyon and Nice 2-0. There is now less than two weeks before their first game of the new Premiership season against Aberdeen.
Of course, the previous campaign was ended prematurely due to the current pandemic – something which demonstrably angered the 54-time Scottish champions. However, despite the league campaign being brought to a close, it has been confirmed that the 2019/20 Scottish Cup semi-finals and final will be played this coming season as well.
Do you agree with this decision?
Whilst the ‘Gers may no longer be in the competition, this has attracted plenty of attention from some of the club’s supporters. They have taken to Twitter to share their displeasure – one fan even called it an “absolute shambles of a decision” – and you can see some of the best comments from the social media platform below:

Oh so we can’t finish the league but we can finish the cup, how convenient. #corrupt

What happens if Hearts or Hibs win the cup. The Europa league will have already started! 😂😂😂

So let’s see, they can extend a cup by 7 months but can’t extend a league beyond 4 days?

Absolute shambles of a decision just to make money. Standard from SFA / SPFL and just another decision that makes Scottish football look like amateurs. Could easily be playing now and getting it finished before the league starts

Shambles! League has to be concluded in early May but cup gets played in late December?
If Celtic werent involved there is no way this would be going ahead and everybody knows it.
