A few outlets claiming Rangers could be in trouble if FM Nicola Sturgeon confirms closed-doors for football matches are completely missing the point and creating a story from nothing.

It’s true Wee Nippy could take that route and stop crowds at matches for a while, but it will not affect Rangers financially to any serious extent and is just scaremongering otherwise.


Rangers STs are basically close to a full house as it already is, with 45,000 STs sold last summer, meaning only 6,000 match-day tickets are ever actually available.

Yes, each home match will lose those 6,000 tickets, but Rangers TV comes to the rescue and will again, we’d assume, be provided free to all those STs. But that still leaves the usual audience globally and those who normally cannot get to the matches, happily paying their £9.99 PPV for RTV fixtures.

So financially, short term, it makes very little difference in the grand scheme of things.

Yes, it’ll be frustrating for those with STs not allowed to get to the match, and we sympathise and support them – but true Rangers fans will accept it’s not the club’s fault and will accept the TV broadcasts until allowed to go back.

It is what it is, and safety and health come first.

  1. Aye you’re right IN the impact on Rangers would be negligible. The key story today is the Spectre of Sports Direct twat Ashley . Determined to screw us into the ground . Hopefully we have some sort of plan as it seems the judge is totally leaning their way !

  2. What happened to the crowd of 500 is that a lie as well its getting ridiculous now people who have been given their booster have to suffer because of other selfish idiots don’t care
