Pundit wants Celtic docked points, Rangers fans call for "sporting integrity"

TalkSPORT pundit Adrian Durham believes that Aberdeen and Celtic should have points docked for their players breaching coronavirus guidelines – a move echoed by some Rangers fans.

The outspoken broadcaster believes that Celtic should have their point docked from the weekend’s draw with Kilmarnock, three handed to St. Mirren and three docked for the match with Aberdeen.

The journalist believes that the exact same should happen to Aberdeen and thinks the SPFL should be coming down harder on the twosome for the reckless behaviour of their players.

“This internal disciplinary thing has really angered me with Celtic,” said Durham [TalkSPORT].

“How can they say they’ll deal with it when they couldn’t even deal with one of their own players?

“I think you’re right with the idea of docking points.

“They should have the point they won against Kilmarnock docked from them.

“The game with St. Mirren’s been postponed so St. Mirren should be awarded a 3-0 win.

“Aberdeen’s game with Hamilton’s been postponed, Hamilton should get a 3-0 win.

“Celtic Aberdeen Saturday, had to be postponed, both should be docked three points, that’s what should happen.”

Durham’s comments echo the views of plenty of Rangers fans who believe the book should be thrown at Celtic for flagrant breaches of the coronavirus guidelines.

After full-back Boli Bolingoli travelled to Spain and failed to quarantine on his return, playing against Kilmarnock, there is a belief that Celtic fielded an ineligible player.

Whilst the party line is that the Hoops didn’t know, the sentiment from Rangers fans is that it remains Celtic’s responsibility.




Rangers’ matches with St. Johnstone and Livingston will go ahead this week with the Ibrox club having the opportunity to stretch out an 11-point lead over their rivals.
