Rangers icon Ally McCoist has waded into the row over the Gers’ appealing the bans handed to five players for breaching Covid regulations – and told interim Celtic boss John Kennedy that it’s none of his business.

Kennedy whined at the time taken to resolve the issue and McCoist wasn’t pleased with Kennedy sticking his nose into things that don’t concern him, pointing to Steven Gerrard’s silence as Boli Bolingoli was “flying all over western Europe.”

With Kennedy appearing to be terrified of coming up against Nathan Patterson next week in the Scottish Cup, McCoist didn’t mince his words as he blasted the stand-in Celtic boss.

“With the greatest of respect to John, it’s not John’s business really,” McCoist said [BT Sport]

“I mean did you hear Steven Gerrard getting involved in Bolingoli’s antics when he was flying all over western Europe? I mean Steven never got involved in that, what’s that all about?


“Concern yourself with your own affairs and things that can affect you, and things that you can control.”

Patterson was one of the five players hit with six-game bans and the appeal will be heard on April 20 – three days after the Gers play Celtic at Ibrox.

It does however mean that he could miss the final Old Firm clash of the season a few weeks later on May 2 if the Scottish Fa uphold the bans originally issued.
