Rangers and the SPFL don’t exactly see eye-to-eye and in an exchange which is becoming tradition ahead of the Ibrox club’s Europa League clashes, fans have let them know about it.

The SPFL once again took to Twitter to wish both the Ibrox side and Old Firm rivals Celtic all the best in the Europa League as they take on Sparta Prague and Bayer Leverkusen respectively.

Commenting on the post, Rangers fans took the chance to tell the SPFL where to stick their goodwill.

Supporters are aggrieved at the directorate of the organisation who many believe are underselling the game in Scotland and who have had numerous disputes with the bosses at Ibrox.

Not least this concerns the awarding of a league title to Celtic without the campaign being completed and subsequent vote of no confidence motioned by the Gers.

Ibrox chairman Douglas Park – embroiled in dispute with the body – also landed a sizeable political blow on the SPFL by signing a special Scottish football contract.
