Rangers decision to withdraw from the Sydney Super Cup has not only left Celtic fans upset but also some of the Australian media.
After the Gers announced their decision not to take part in the controversial mid-season tournament down under, the Australian sports press were left with nothing else to do put post some salty tweets.
While Celtic may well still head for Oz in November – and frankly, we couldn’t care less what they do when the World Cup is on – Rangers won’t be in Sydney, with the organisers pondering their next move after expressing their disappointment.
Several of the distraught Aussie media outlets made reference to one of the ‘support acts’ pulling out – as they were left facing up to Celtic playing a series of friendlies against teams even Australian fans barely care about.
While there is sure to be plenty of fallout still to come as a result of the entire debacle, it’s been quite funny to see the Aussies get so bent out of shape by Rangers’ decision.
The presentation of the tournament as Ange’s homecoming is a big part of why signing up for the Sydney Super Cup was a stupid idea from the Rangers board – no matter how much they want to point towards the potential commercial benefits.
With seven months until the games were due to have taken place, Rangers can now get something in place that fans actually want to see.
Until then, we’re sure there will be plenty more scorching hot takes from the bitter Aussies.
Rangers are set to play Celtic this weekend and here is the starting XI we’re tipping to take to the pitch against the Parkhead side.
