Plenty of Rangers fans were left fuming over comments made by Hugh Keevins on Clyde 1 Superscoreboard after Sunday’s Betfred Cup final.
Speaking on the radio show after the match [via @ClydeSSB], he said that Steven Gerrard’s side only had themselves to blame for their defeat, despite the controversial nature of the decisive goal at Hampden Park.
Celtic defender Christopher Jullien appeared to be in an offside position when he struck the only goal of the game on the hour mark, but none of the officials signalled for an infringement. [via BBC]
Rangers dominated the game for large spells, having 16 shots to the Hoops’ five, but they were unable to find a way past Fraser Forster, who saved a 64th-minute penalty from Alfredo Morelos. [via BBC]
Jeremie Frimpong was sent off in the incident which led to that spot kick, leaving the ‘Gers with a one-man advantage for almost half an hour. [via BBC]
After Keevins expressed his lack of sympathy for Rangers’ inability to respond to those blows, these fans of the Light Blues took to Twitter to vent their displeasure at his comments:
Time to retire how anyone can employ him is beyond me . The goal in a 1-0 win was off side but did not determine the outcome is the opinion of a mad man lol

Celtic’s goal is the only thing that determined the outcome of the game. How he can say otherwise is ludicrous!

Time to retire permanently, embarrassing.

Hahaha Hugh the Hypocrite strikes again. One shot on target and it was offside yet it doesn’t affect the outcome of the cup final. If that’s Celtic you’re writing a column calling refs cheats again Hugh just like you did before🤦🏻♂️😂 pic.twitter.com/FrO40T60YB

So the goal scored in a 1-0 victory DIDNT determine the outcome of the game? Please explain that, I think it’s time for Shug to retire, this is ultimate nonsense
