An Aberdeen fan has been shot down by his own club after starting an unsubstantiated rumour that the Rangers team flooded the away dressing room following the match at Pittodrie.
Rangers are licking their wounds after a disappointing performance and draw at Pittodrie was sandwiched between a woeful Kevin Clancy performance as the match ended 1-1.
But according to one Aberdeen fan on Twitter – with apparent inside knowledge at Pittodrie – Rangers left the taps running and flooded the away dressing room in the ground.
“Rangers have left the taps and showers going as they left Pittodrie and have flooded the away dressing room,” said Dons Daily.
As the tweet was jumped upon by rival fans, Aberdeen have also come out to deny this was ever even the case and absolve the Rangers side.
Aberdeen claims “electrical fault” – not Rangers – to blame for dressing room issue
Speaking to the Press & Journal, the Dons shot down the rumours and attributed any flooding to an electrical fault and not the Rangers side.
“Unfortunately, there was an electrical fault throughout some of the dressing room areas following last night’s match due to the hot water supply circuit tripping,” said a Dons spokesperson.
“This issue was rectified swiftly by our operations and maintenance teams.
“As would be expected when a water supply is involved, there was some excess water in the area but there was no damage done to any of the dressing rooms.
“The water supply has been restored and fully checked in preparation of the visit of Edinburgh City FC in our Scottish Cup match on Saturday.”
Embarrassed by his own club, it makes the Dons Daily assertion that Rangers flooding the dressing room was “100%” the case even more deranged.
Rangers retain a healthy four point lead in the Scottish Premiership and will now turn their attentions to Stirling Albion in the cup this Friday evening.
Rangers boss Giovanni van Bronckhorst was clearly eager to move on from the poor performance as he cursed the lack of proper technology in Scottish football.
