Celtic caller drops major Rangers blooper as Europa League jibe backfires – Hotline – Sports Hotline

Seville took center stage despite Celtic having their own title party to think about.

Welcome to the wacky world of the Hotline where more Hoops fans called to have a dig at Rangers than to celebrate their own clubs’ success… and the Gers fans were so busy gloating they barely noticed that the trophy they so longed for during the barren banter years is heading back across the city.

Okay, let’s go.

Kenny Wilson, Moffat, said: “Of course getting to the Europa League final is a good achievement but the way the fans are carrying on you would think it was the biggest trophy of all (there’s one of those at Celtic). Rangers play a team sitting 12th in the Bundesliga, which tells you the big teams are not interested in this trophy.”

William Hutchinson, Aberdeen, said: “To the Hotliner who said us Celtic fans will be more obsessed that Rangers might win the Europa League than us celebrating winning the league – nonsense! If Rangers do win it then they’ll have done well to do it. But winning the league has always been our priority. Everything else is always a bonus.”

Brian KeenanTorquay emailed: “To all Rangers fans, it’s worth remembering you have won nothing this season plus it has taken two managers this season to get you to two finals.”

Liam Birney Paisley said: “Well done to Rangers for getting to the final, however the Europa League is and always has been a second tier tournament for second tier teams. Did Rangers put out any champions of their country? I rest my case!” (Red Star Belgrade were champions).

John Irvine emailed: “Perspective on the debate of who’s the best team. Celtic are so good, they’ve won the title above their closest rivals, who are also European finalists.”

Robert McEwanMount Vernon said: “I remember winning the league 1979, the centenary year double, stopping the ten with Wim, Martin, Brendan and Gordon’s titles plus Lenny but Ange is right up there. It’s an incredible achievement. Thanks Ange.”

Michael Emonds, Northampton, emailed: “George Wilson’s daily obsession with Celtic continues, he’s now concerned about Celtic celebrating our title win, don’t worry Mr Wilson just watch Glasgow turn green on Saturday.

“How’s this for a celebration? Just imagine his team win the Europa League, then the Scottish Cup and top it off by winning the European Super Cup, they could have celebrated with their fans in Australia in November by parading their haul of trophies. but they didn’t have the bottle and chickened out so there won’t be any celebrations down under.”

right-on-cue, George Wilson, West Sussex, said: “George Wilson, West Sussex, said: “It’s difficult to work out who is more desperate at the moment. Myself and fellow Rangers fans are desperately keen to complete what has already been an amazing achievement and win the Europa League final. Or all the Celtic supporters who will be desperately hoping and praying that fate or Eintracht Frankfurt will intervene and prevent what would be their worst nightmare. The Celtic supporters shouldn’t be worried because according to them we have beaten nobody and have been incredibly lucky so this must run out soon.”

Drew FergusonOban said: “I see the bookies have Eintracht Frankfurt as favorites to win the Europa League. This is the same bookies that had Borussia Dortmund, Red Star Belgrade and RB Leipzig as big favorites against Glasgow Rangers. Will they ever learn?”

John DavidsonArmadale said: “Wishing the Celtic fans all the best with their wee organized knees up on Saturday. Come Wednesday night around 11pm, Glasgow will be blue and there will be a real party.”

Gary Stevenson, Newtonhill, asked: “Can any of the 250,000 Celtic supporters suggest any places to visit for our stay in Seville? Places of interest, bars and restaurants. I understand that a lot has changed in 20 years but any advice would be appreciated.”

Disgruntled Hibs fan George Fairgrieve emailed: “What a sorry state Hibs are in, yet another goal lost to an unmarked Mulligan header. The team comprises too many utility players, loyal servants and aging warhorses who are simply not good enough.”

and Alan Lough, Dunbar, said: “Ronaldo has told Erling Haaland what it takes to be a great player. Considering Haaland is a far better player than Ronaldo is, he would be wise to ignore anything Ronaldo has to say but should instead listen to Robert Lewandowski, who is the best player in the world.”
