Vlogger apologises to Rangers after Celtic fans take video "out of context"

A controversial vlogger has been forced to apologise to Rangers after causing a storm with a Rangers and Celtic rivals tour video.

YouTuber Ninh Ly visited the tours of both Ibrox and Celtic Park this week whilst wearing the top of the rival side in a unique kind of social experiment.

But such is the ferocity of the rivalry, the fall-out from the video has been considerable and Ninh Ly has apologised to Rangers after Celtic fans cut a segment of his video to manipulate his message.

“Apparently, there’s a two-minute clip of my video, my entire video is 24 minutes of course, that has been cut specifically to make Rangers look really bad, and Celtic look really good,” said Ninh Ly.

“Obviously, I didn’t do this. This cut of the video indicates that Rangers staff and their fans have been incredibly unwelcoming, and unfortunately that is not the case.

“I’ve been on record to say that the tour guide at Rangers was very nice to me.

“I actually wrote a letter of apology to Rangers this morning because obviously this two-minute snippet of my 24-minute video has been taken a little bit out of context and is not indicative of my opinion.”

The two-minute segment in question has been the source of much criticism from Rangers fans, who are clearly incensed by those Celtic fans using the video to stereotype and attack their club.

The snippet gained traction when it was retweeted by Stan Collymore, an outspoken pundit with a particular disliking for the blue side of Glasgow.

Ninh Ly also responded to claims that Celtic knew he was coming on their tour after the YouTuber was pictured on social media at Ibrox in a Celtic top.

The vlogger admitted it was very possible they did, whilst also acknowledging that a Celtic top was showing under his Rangers shirt whilst on the tour at Parkhead.
