Rangers fans were thrilled with their team’s performance in the match at the expense of West Ham but also lined for a shot in Hotline Regular Gordon Ashley’s praises of Celtic during their 2-2 draw against Blackburn over the weekend.Daily Record Hotline
John Wilson emailed:
“Gordon Ashley needs a rest in this hot weather He gushes that Saturday’s game against Blackburn was a centre-half away from playing for a team. I’m guessing that he was not able to save Siegrist’s shots and Celtic were unable to get winning. Rangers beat a nearly fully-fit West Ham, who had not lost in their 10 games however Gordon is going to prove this as a disaster for the pre-season without doubt.
Do I need to remind Gordon that it doesn’t matter how you perform even if you don’t succeed. It’s been a real enjoyable read and amusing to read Gordon’s remarks, however, when VAR is involved what could he possibly write about? VAR has the right to correct bad decisions and respect the positive decisions. It’s time to roll out VAR and get a 20-point headstart to Rangers over Celtic If last season’s decisions were any guide.
John Bruce emailed:
“Rangers beat the team that placed eighth at the EPL last season, 3-1, following a thrilling second-half performance. West Ham just couldn’t handle the speed or pace from the Rangers team, and were completely beaten within a 20-minute period.
George Wilson, West Sussex, said: “Still waiting to hear from Gordon Ashley over his forecast PS8 million that the Rangers were likely to receive in exchange for Calvin Bassey. He’s now hoping that we all forget and has moved onto Malik Tillman, and it appears he’s a complete jerk now.
“Quite truthfully, I’d never ever heard of Tillman prior to this week and I’m pretty sure Ashley didn’t. This is another instance of his love for all things Rangers and his desire to smack them down whenever he can. It’s no question that Celtics recent two new signings Mooy as well as Jenz are world class players. It’s hard to judge since nobody has heard of them before.”
David Manson, Williamwood, emailed:
“It’s good to see all the Celtic fans are focused on Rangers because their club isn’t anything to discuss. It’s always better to talk about the beautiful fairy-tales rather than focusing on the ugly trolls.”
David Speirs, Coalhall, said: “I want to make it clear to all the Celtic fans who are on the Hotline the last few days that it’s only about the Rangers. We’ve won 55 titles compared to the 52 you have won. Rangers were not competitive for seven of the past 10 years and now you’re participating in the Champions League on the back of Rangers efforts in Europe. You’ve not done anything in Europe for a long time.”
Eddie Easson, Ballingry,Fife stated:
“As I’ve said every season, nothing can be won right now. New players require time to adjust. Don’t forget to shout at the conclusion of the season, when the trophies are given out. One thing is for sure, those heads of the three of Hotline players Wilson, Lowe and Bruce are unable to comprehend or understand Rangers debts will not disappear at the close of the season.”
However, Stefan Lomako, Whithorn, emailed: “I’ve observed enough of that game and the Celtic and Rangers friendlies to suggest that we’ve got exciting games to anticipate. I’m not sure Rangers will have any trouble making it to the Champions League group stage and I’m also looking to see Ange and Gio’s plans come to fruition.”
