There’s been mischief in the press about Robert Snodgrass ‘taking a dig’ at Rangers with his early Rangers youth kit at Ibrox supposedly hiding a Celtic kit underneath, but while a Google search will see lying Celtic sites’ headlines (somehow they get onto the Rangers results) lapping this up, they’re doing exactly that. Lying.

Snodgrass isn’t ‘one of them’ at all, and he explains clearly that he wasn’t taking a dig at Rangers at all.

He was just lacking a pair of shorts, and only had his brother’s Celtic shorts to wear to training.

He said:

“When I went to Rangers, the actual pro-team, I used to wear the old Celtic bumblebee shorts under the Rangers shorts. It wasn’t a dig at them – it was just the only shorts I had – they were my brothers shorts. Looking back it was a good time getting into Rangers, Celtic, Hamilton and other teams.”

Snodgrass isn’t into Rangers, ‘them’ or anyone else – he was just trying to become a professional footballer and that was the only kit/shorts he actually had at the time, and they weren’t even his.

But this is where Scottish pro-Celtic media lap the idea up, make the headline and lead with completely false information in order to get clicks, attention and traffic.

In fact, we say ‘pro-Celtic’, it’s really more pro-attention, where they will use both sides of the Old Firm to get the clicks.

Indeed, our ‘dear friends’ at Ibrox News do the same, constantly use attention-seeking headlines both anti and pro Rangers and Celtic in order to lure people to click.

But this is getting away from the point – no, Snodgrass isn’t ‘one of them’ and probably isn’t one of us either. He’s just a footballer who had a pretty solid career.
