Celtic have reportedly been told that thirteen players and staff have to isolate after their outrageous trip to Dubai ended in complete farce – and Rangers fans are enjoying it as much they want the book thrown at Neil Lennon’s side.
After one player was confirmed to have tested positive for Covid-19, it’s now reported that a sizeable portion of their players and staff have to isolate ahead of tonight’s Premiership clash with Hibs. [Daily Record]
First Minister Nicola Sturgeon had called on the situation to be “looked at” by the SFA, and with so many of Celtic’s players ruled out, they will have to face some sort of investigation.
There are no details on which players or staff have to isolate but given the size of Celtic’s squad, there shouldn’t be any risk to tonight’s game with Hibs taking place.
With Rangers sitting 22 points ahead of Celtic in the league, the Parkhead side need three points to have any hope of maintaining their title challenge and stopping the Gers finally making it 55.
Fans on Twitter were quick to stick the boot into Celtic and were, rightly, calling on action to be taken after their utterly selfish trip.
Here are some of the comments from Rangers fans on Twitter:
If you cant play the game, the 3 points should be going to the other team https://t.co/oycEXGjJfq

Went to Dubai and this is the result and it absolutely sums up their season.
Regardless of the result tonight I’m saying it now because all season they’ve been an absolute shambles, the league is over. https://t.co/QbIJdEkiWC
