After the Aberdeen result on Tuesday, our rivals were always going to try rub salt in the wounds. Those from up Aberdeen way are probably well within their rights to. They have a trip to Hampden coming up, and we don’t.

Celtic fans, naturally, came out of the woodwork. Goading Rangers for their poor performance, they also started a rumour that star man Alfredo Morelos wanted to join the murky ranks of our rivals. You can’t fault their timing.

But whilst the obviously fake rumour is a bit of patter for them, what’s worse is that some of the deluded Parkhead ranks actually believe it. This is comedy gold.

 

You get the picture. The strange rumour is built on the idea that Alfredo Morelos has a release clause in his contract. For some reason, Celtic fans are determined for this be the case.

Rangers fans were delighted when Alfredo Morelos signed a new contract with the club last week. Some Celtic fans remain utterly convinced this somehow contains a release clause.

Highly reputable club insider Four Lads Had a Dream shot down claims the contract contained one not long after Morelos signed.

But don’t let the facts get in the way of a good rumour. Particularly when so many are desperate to lap it up!
