Celtic and Hibs fans clash over Hampden ticketgate as Jack Ross told he won't make final - Hotline

Daily Record logo Daily Record 25/11/2021 Sports Hotline

They hit the heights at Hampden but were completely dross in Dingwall.

It’s certainly a rollercoaster following Hibs as they followed up their Premier Sports Cup win against Rangers by slumping to defeat against Ross County.

Boss Jack Ross is now being reminded about the famous line about peacocks and feather dusters.

George Fairgrieve said: “What is it with Hibs? Aberdeen hadn’t won in 10 games, we went up there and they beat us. Ross County hadn’t won a home game since May and are bottom of the league and once more Hibs obliged.

“Renewing contracts to ageing players. Get Ross out and Derek McInnes in.”

William Stevenson emailed: “That is why teams like Hibs, Hearts and Aberdeen etc can't win championships and compete in Europe.

“They up their game for the Old Firm and not the rest.”

Stephen Johnstone, Ardentinney, said: “The only thing that is piling up on Jack Ross is his five league games without a win. They went right off the Boyle.

“At this rate, he might not see Hibs’ cup final and my money is on Scott Brown replacing Jack as player manager and his first signing will be Leigh Griffiths.”

Still on Hibs, the row over cup final tickets rolls on.

Dougie Lyburn emailed: “It is an absolute disgrace Hibs aren't getting 50 percent of the tickets for this year's League Cup Final and an insult to suggest they could not sell out such an allocation.”

John Scott, Grassmoor, said: “It’s a final, played at a so-called neutral venue for a reason. No advantage to either team but this is Scotland. Where our national stadium has a Rangers end and a Celtic end.”

Robbie Devlin, via email, said: “Once again the glory hunters are out looking for a 50/50 split in tickets for finals.

“Why should a club with 10,000 season ticket holders and couldn’t sell that much for a semi get an even split?

“The Old Firm’s season ticket holders are regularly left disappointed when it comes to these games. Surely in this day and age it would be easy to factor in a ratio of season ticket holders to tickets available?”

Christopher Currie, Ayrshire, said: “Hibs couldn’t even sell a 10k allocation for a semi-final whereas Celtic sold 35k tickets and could’ve sold 10k more if given them. Get real.”

Rangers were in Europa League action last night but the Hampden fall out continues, especially over those Connor Goldson quotes.

Derek Adese, Dundee, said: “I'm getting a distinct feeling that because a Rangers player has come out and been absolutely honest about the state of play, it means the club is rank rotten.

“He said exactly what us supporters are thinking, yet gets slaughtered for it.

“Keep the truth coming mate. Any true blue will be right behind you.”

Stuart McLeod said: “The Rangers fans have every right to speak up when players don't show any desire or admit defeat when the game has only reached the halfway stage.

“Our previous manager proved in a Champions league final in Istanbul what you can achieve with some desire from what looked a hopeless position.”

Scott Cassidy, Bridgeton, said: “I’m normally a very positive and optimistic Rangers fan.

“The last week or so is the lowest I’ve felt since the dark dark days of a decade ago. Gerrard was the one for our club and he’s now bolted and unlike some of you fellow fans I’m unsure how GVB is going to do with lack of funds and with some under performing stars.”

Eddie Easson, Fife, said: “One trophy after so called total dominance last season. Knocked out of the first trophy this season by an average Hibs. Mountains of debt that doesn't look like subsiding.

“Players who look like they don't want to be there. A captain who hid after a defeat after his big statements the week before.

“Yes, everything is rosy in the bluebell garden.”

Finally, Joe Graham, Garrowhill, said: “Fair play to Scott Brown for distancing himself from FIFA’S Fair Play Award by saying give it to a real hero.

“It was a lovely gesture he showed to Glen Kamara recently, but to receive a fair play award for it is laughable. It’s Scott Brown we are talking about.”

It’s clearly not the season of peace and goodwill just yet.
