Fans of Glasgow Rangers have been reacting to a post on Twitter, in which St Johnstone – Rangers’ opposition on Wednesday evening – revealed the cost of their pay-per-view stream for the clash with Gers.
With fans still not being allowed back into stadiums, supporters are still having to make do with streams provided by the clubs themselves in order to see their team in action.
And, ahead of Gers’ trip to McDiarmid Park to face St Johnstone on Wednesday, the Saints confirmed in a post on Twitter that the fixture would be available to watch via their pay-per-view service.
However, with the price of the stream being set at a quite remarkable £17.50, fans of Rangers flocked to have their say on the matter, with many appearing to be dumbstruck by the amount of money St Johnstone are charging to watch the game, while others stated that they hope nobody takes the club up on their offer.
Will you be paying £17.50 to watch the stream tonight?
So, what exactly did these Rangers fans have to say in reaction to the price of St Johnstone’s stream?
“I would have paid a tenner for it. As a matter of principle, you will certainly not be getting £17.50. Shocking price for a meaningless game. I hope nobody takes you up on the offer.”
“Ridiculous price. No chance.”
“Pricing yourself out of the market. Genius!”
“Anyone who pays £17.50 to them for this is off their head. Get tickets for the games for not much more than that. Could’ve made it £10 and most would’ve paid and they’d have made a fortune but £17.50 is just plain greed.”
“This is unsurprisingly a shambles and blatant exploitation of Rangers fans. The best thing you can do? Have a look at Rangers’ commercial partners. Anyone at all needs a bit of help setting anything up please get in touch.”
“Stunned if they make a grand tonight.”
“Absolutely shocking! Would they charge this if they were playing someone other than Rangers or Celtic? That’s the price of a damned ticket!”
