Diehard Rangers fans McBurnie and McKay reject Swansea huddle

The Rangers contingent at Swansea City showed their blue colours this weekend by refusing to link arms in a pre-match huddle.
Diehard bluenose Oliver McBurnie has never made any secret of his affiliation to Rangers. Neither has ex-Gers star Barrie McKay, who recently told The Sun he has unfinished business at Ibrox. Find our story on that here.
Swansea faced off against Gillingham in the FA Cup at the weekend. And prior to kick off, the Rangers diehards proved old habits die hard.


The huddle is something long associated with Celtic and by proxy, something Rangers fans and players don’t do.
As you can see by the photo Declan John is doing the huddle. The ex-Ranger probably never got the memo, but there is a difference between being a Rangers fan and having been a Rangers player.
Rejecting the huddle must’ve worked too. McBurnie hit a double and Barrie McKay nabbed one as the Swans ran out 4-1 winners against the Gills.

It’s not the first time someone with a Rangers connection has staunchly refused to huddle this season either.
Greg Docherty also refused to take part in the pre-match ritual whilst with Shrewsbury Town earlier this month.
What do you think? Do real Rangers men ever take part in a “huddle”?
