Rangers must make Scott Bain eat his words in December

Scott Bain has said that reducing Celtic’s capacity will make victory “only sweeter” if they win the next Old Firm at Ibrox in December.

Rangers must make sure he and the rest of the Celtic team don’t get the chance to taste it.

Bain said, “I don’t know how it would feel, we would see on the day, but fewer 
Celtic fans will mean it’s only sweeter if we win the game,” said Bain. “If there are no Celtic fans? Well, it will be really good to win, eh?”

This match at Ibrox is massive for many ways. It could spark a serious title challenge if Rangers, or Celtic, are still in the hunt by then. The ticket scenario simply adds an extra dimension to it.

Dave King has already said that he won’t be reversing the decision. And good on him. Everyone connected to Celtic is raging about it and that can only be a good thing.

To me, Rangers are looking after their own interests with this decision. It allows more Rangers fans to buy season tickets – granted – but it also means Celtic will be in unfamiliar circumstances come December.

With 8000 fans behind one of our goals they were taking the p***. Now, they’ll need to stand up to a team on form, driven on by 50,000 Rangers fans.

It’s an advantage.

Comments like Scott Bain’s are already ramping up the pressure on this huge match.

We’ve still got a month to go yet.

But when it does eventually roll round, Rangers must make Scott Bain eat his words.
