This Old Firm controversy is gathering pace. As you’ll have seen yesterday, Celtic embarrassingly erected barriers YET AGAIN outside their stadium, this time to stop their wonderful brethren from entering the ground, or trying to.

But the authorities, government, SPFL and both clubs are locked in negotiations on how exactly to handle the impending clash between the Champions and the sloppy seconds in the east of Glasgow.

The fear simply is that fans of both sides are going to descend on Parkhead – and it’s clear that they will do exactly that.

Rangers fans WILL be there, and Celtic fans won’t be able to resist either.

Unless, that is, both clubs can get through to their fans – Rangers lead the way on this, impressing over last weekend and all throughout the week that their fans stay away – this club could not have done more to try to halt the supporters for the potentially dangerous gatherings.

Now, we’ve looked into the numbers since Rangers’ large celebrations last weekend, and there’s been a spike of covid 19 cases from 1 new cases per day a week ago in Glasgow City just before the gatherings to 23 in the most recent stats. Unless we’re reading the numbers wrong, and we’re no statisticians or epidemiologists, there was a clear impact where the infection rate is now 2.5% (0.8% just over a week ago) in Glasgow, which is still below the national average of 3.4%.

But this is why all authorities plead on Old Firm fans to stay home.

It just isn’t worth it.

    • Infact stay the fuck away as it will end up in a scrap and take the shine of the 55,all that work to get the title blown away with a scrap at parkheed fuckin forget it,Thats what they cunts want!,and then blame the famous NAW!

  1. I think any rise in numbers is unlikely to be as a result of last weekend. It would be soon.
    As for the Old Firm game why not play it on something like a Tuesday lunch time when a lot of supporters are working. Well at least ours are!
