A Twitter account linked to Celtic owner and Irish billionaire Dermot Desmond has accused Rangers of deceiving the authorities over Covid-19 close contacts.

Twitter user @gonzaagabd is believed to be a close contact of the Desmond family and potentially a son of the Celtic owner after an investigation into its Tweets by Celtic fan journalist Liam O’Hare.

This investigation largely shows the account linked to numerous Desmond-related businesses and other tweets regarding the family.

Whilst O’Hare is clear that he has “no way of definitively knowing” who is behind the account there is a sentiment online that it has particularly close links to the club’s owner for the reasons outlined in the thread above.

However, the same account has now began making outrageous and potentially defamatory claims that the Ibrox club have lied about close contacts during Covid-19 testing.


The account claims that Rangers lied about the close contacts of Swedish defender Filip Helander to NHS test and protect after he tested positive for the virus in November and covered it up by deleting photos from the training ground.

This account believes Helander tested positive on November 27th and Rangers deleted training photographs to prevent other players having to isolate as a result.

The account – which I’ll repeat has been heavily linked to the Desmond family – then states it is “now a matter of fact” that Rangers lied to test and protect.

Earlier in the week the account also claimed that the Scottish Government used Celtic defender Chris Jullien’s positive test upon returning from Dubai “to make a political decision to punish Celtic”.


Rangers announced Filip Helander’s positive Covid-19 test via Twitter on November 29th last year.

If the account is attached to the Celtic owner or his family then it’ll come as no surprise to Rangers fans that the meltdown over 55 has run this deep.

The Parkhead club have been found to be misleading their fans over a shared trademark with Rangers in a salty tweet this week.
