Many Glasgow Rangers fans have been reacting to an article from Keith Jackson in the aftermath of the latest Old Firm clash.
On May 2nd, the Gers hammered Celtic 4-1 in the last Old Firm game of the season – it was their fourth win in five attempts against their fierce rivals in 2020/21 (Sky Sports). It means the Gers are still unbeaten in this season’s Premiership and they have just two games left (BBC).
The clash also marked Scott Brown’s last Old Firm appearance – he will join Aberdeen at the end of this season. Jackson has suggested that a highly-ranked Rangers official made a crude gesture towards Brown in the tunnel after that match, although Celtic have not chosen to lodge an official complaint since.
Can Keith Jackson be trusted?
Unsurprisingly, this did not go down well with many Rangers supporters. The article from Jackson was shared on his official Twitter page, and it attracted plenty of attention from Gers fans, one of whom called it “embarrassing”. These supporters took to the social media platform to share their thoughts.
Let’s see what the fans had to say about the Jackson piece below
“What an embarrassment Keef, imagine putting your name to such a toadying piece. Brown deserves every verbal, he lorded it over poor Rangers sides, he was a classless moron still goading his opponents and opposition fans, even when substituted at Ibrox he was still mouthing off.”
“Embarrassing article. Happy for Griffiths blowing his nose on corner flags and tying scarves to posts when playing against guys like Keirnan and Goss yet nothing said. Poor Broony finally exposed as the plastic hard man that he is”
“Hibs & Saints have just made the cup final and this is what you decide to write about ? Brown, Griffiths and even Lawwell have had digs at Rangers over the years, it’s football that’s what happens. Pathetic stuff.”
“Laughable stuff from Jackson here yet again! The same Rodgers who bolted at the first sniff off the EPL! The same Brown who made a career of goading other players and fans!”
“Keith this screams sour grapes. Scott Brown has been the luckiest footballer in Scotland in the last 50 years. He deserves a good old slagging for his and his teams performances this season.”
“Brown has been dishing it out for years so forgive my lack of sympathy here. You reap what you sow, as they say. “Provocatively goaded”? Give me peace.”
In other news, many Rangers fans were livid at this journalist’s comments.
