Ex-Rangers star taunts Dundee United after AZ Alkmaar mauling

Former Rangers star and Dundee captain Charlie Adam has been goading Premiership rivals Dundee United after they were humiliated by AZ Alkmaar in Europa Conference League qualification.

Scottish clubs outside the Old Firm haven’t exactly got the greatest reputation in Scottish football and the humiliation continued as AZ romped to a 7-0 win over the Arabs in the Netherlands.

This came after Dundee United had won the first leg 1-0 at Tannadice, with ex-Rangers winger Glenn Middleton getting the goal and raising hopes of a monumental upset.

But Scottish football and Dundee United were brought crashing back down to Earth with the Arabs 5-0 down at halftime and conceding five goals in a 15 minute spell across both halves.

Vengelis Pavildis and Tijjani Reijnders got doubles with Hakon Evjen, Dani de Wit and Mayckel Lahdo rounding off the scoring with Dundee United fans everywhere licking their wounds.

But for the likes of Charlie Adam, it’s been an immense opportunity to turn the screw as the former Dundee and Rangers midfielder took aim on Twitter.

The ex-Ibrox star didn’t stop there either and continued the goading with a picture later in the game.

Rangers fans join Charlie Adam in goading Dundee United fans

Twitter is awash with salty Dundee United fans acting outraged at all the goading but there’s little doubt Charlie Adam has taken plenty from their supporters over the years.

With 1300 fans said to have made the trip, there will be plenty of hangovers, headaches and hurting Tangerines on the way back to Scotland this morning.

But they’ll get no sympathy from Rangers fans, the outspoken Dundee United hierarchy and support quick to stick the boot into the Gers during the club’s financial issues in 2012.

For an extra laugh, here’s Jim Spence biting at the big bad Rangers fans pointing, laughing and indulging at Dundee United’s objectively embarrassing defeat on the European stage.

To put this defeat into context, the 7-0 loss is a record-equalling defeat for a Scottish club in Europe matching Celtic’s hammering at the hands of Barcelona in 2016 and Hibs’ thrashing at the hands of Malmo in 2013.

Meanwhile, a former Rangers manager has claimed that the Ibrox side failed in a record-breaking £15m move for a legendary former striker who is officially Glasgow bound.
