Celtic fans hilariously accuse SFA of “corruption” over Rangers penalty stat

Celtic fans have been left fuming after popular online forum and Twitter account Pie & Bovril unveiled a quite incredible Rangers penalty stat.

Conveniently feeding into the ole’ Celtic fan refereeing conspiracy, Rangers are the only side in the Scottish Premiership not to concede a penalty this season.

Rangers’ defence has been the foundation of the club’s legendary title win, which came at the earliest point in a season for over 100 years.

Steven Gerrard’s side conceded only their 11th goal of the season in the 2-1 win over Hibs and with four games remaining the club is hoping to beat Chelsea’s record of 15 goals conceded in a league campaign back in 2004/05.


Rangers have generally subdued the opposition attacks on domestic soil this season, something which has meant teams are limited to chances and shots on target let alone goals.

In order to get penalties you need to get into the opposition box and Rangers are so well-drilled and set-up that they win the ball back early and teams struggle to get into by their 18-yard line.

It’s unsurprising that Rangers have conceded no penalties when you consider the fact that they’ve barely conceded a goal.

But here’s a selection of Celtic fans melting down over the Rangers penalty stat as conspiracies come out to help ease the woes of 55 and the death of Terry Munro:



We knew 55 would hurt, but even your average Rangers fan will have underestimated just how delusional some of the fall out has been in the aftermath of the Ibrox title win.

Still, at least Celtic fans can comfort themselves in claiming celebrities are supporters of their club when they quite clearly aren’t, that’s always a good tonic for a runner’s up medal.
