Rangers fans pounce on SPT Twitter gaffe ahead of Livingston clash

Rangers fans have pounced on a gaffe made by the SPT operated Glasgow Subway Twitter account on Friday evening.

The travel advice page, which has over 10,000 followers, tweeted to warn of crowds and to caution against anti-social behaviour, after asserting that Rangers were taking on Livingston at Ibrox this weekend.

Of course, that, in fact, is not the case. The Gers are in action against Gary Holt’s side on Sunday, but the game is taking place in West Lothian rather than in Govan. In fact, Steven Gerrard’s side don’t have another home game until the beginning of December.

Unsurprisingly, plenty of Bears latched onto the error.

Here’s a selection of reactions from Twitter:

After the significant fan response, over three hours later, the account moved to correct their error.

An embarrassing one for the Subway then, the service thousands of fans use to get to and from Ibrox on matchdays.

There were several talking points surrounding the SPT service from Thursday night’s clash with Porto.

Ahead of the game, temporary closures to both circles due to a ‘passenger related incident’ threatened to cause disruption, but, both were back up and running in time for major delays to be avoided.

Furthermore, plenty of Bears hit out at the ‘Subway Loyal’ following the win, suggesting that the thousands of fans who left the game before the final whistle were letting the players down.
