The Glasgow Times have once again let the mask slip with an anti-Rangers message in a supposed pro-Rangers article, when promoting the Battle of Britain this week featuring Giovanni’s men’s trip to Liverpool.
As most fans will know, there’s been quite a few of these hook ups between sides north and south of the border over the years, but the biggest one in the past few decades has definitely been Rangers Leeds in 1992, where the two goliath champions went head to head for a place in the inaugural Champions League.
Leeds were, by far, the favourites, but Rangers shocked England with a convincing and sensational 4-2 aggregate scoreline over a side featuring among others, Gary McAllister and Eric Cantona.
And yet what match does the Times show to promote Rangers’ upcoming battle with Jurgen Klopp’s men at Anfield?
Leeds v Celtic in the 60s.
That’s right, in an article inspired by Rangers facing Liverpool, not even Rangers’ monumental win over the Elland Road giants was deemed an appropriate headline snap, but instead a Celtic picture was.
We know the Glasgow Times are meant to be neutral – they are responsible for both the Rangers Review (run by a Hibs fan, yes indeed) and Celtic View, but to promote our match with Liverpool by way of Celtic imagery is a joke, a complete farce.
But then that paper really has gone downhill since the bygone days of Alan Davidson.
Is impartiality and fairness too much to ask from the media?
