Rangers fan influencers and media have been outspoken about the “relentless” financial coverage of the club being drummed up by the mainstream sports media.

The Ibrox club – like every other club in football – is facing a bleak few months as the domestic league shutdown rocks the European game.

But whilst other clubs have been allowed the space and freedom to work out their own financials, Rangers have been at the centre of numerous reports concerning the club’s financial future.

Club influencer Four Lads Had a Dream has discussed the “huge” pressure from tabloids this week desperate for Rangers to announce cuts.

Given Celtic revealed that they would be putting non-playing staff on a government-funded furlough [Herald], Four Lads described this obsessive coverage of Rangers as a deflection.

This includes a sarcastic column by ex-Celtic striker and Parkhead cheerleader Chris Sutton, who distastefully jibed that Rangers “think they’re the richest club in Europe”.


The popular blogger and insider also prepared supporters for “opposite reporting” in the Scottish press when/if Rangers do announce cuts.


This is a view echoed by fellow Rangers fan media influencer Heart & Hand, who also took to Twitter to criticise the coverage of Rangers’ finances in the media.

The popular podcasting platform claimed Rangers fans “see the strings” and criticised the lack of subtlety in the reporting.

Rangers fan influencer Four Lads has previously urged the club’s fans to “ignore the narrative” [Four Lads] that Rangers are in grave financial danger, regularly talking up the robust nature of the board.
