The coronavirus pandemic has created chaos for Glasgow Rangers and many other clubs in Scottish football.
For the first time since World War II, the SPFL announced that the top four leagues have been cancelled as a result of the COVID-19 crisis. As a result, Glasgow rivals Celtic were crowned champions and Hearts were subsequently relegated from the Scottish Premiership.
The SPFL has now revealed that James Anderson will donate more than £3m to a trust to give support to clubs and their communities during the economic uncertainty. The Edinburgh-based philanthropist has confirmed he will provide further funding to Scottish clubs in the years to come (BBC).
However, while the Bundesliga has made a triumphant return, and the Premier League and La Liga are all gearing up for a restart, there is no sign of Scottish football resuming any time soon.
Unsurprisingly, it seems that loads of RFC fans are unhappy with the news as they took to social media to vent their frustrations at the “utter embarrassment”. One fan tweeted that the grant is “pathetic” while another called the SPFL are “corrupt” in reference to the recent accusations.
Scroll through some of the scathing reactions so far…
When 95% of leagues are back playing football it shows you how pathetic and tinpot the @SPFL are.
