Celtic and Hibs fans clash over Hampden ticketing as Jack Ross says he won’t be finalist – Hotline – Sports Hotline


They peaked at Hampden but were completely filthy at Dingwall.

It’s certainly been a roller coaster after Hibs as they followed their Premier Sports Cup win over Rangers crashing to defeat Ross County.

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

George Fairgrieve said, “What’s with Hibs? Aberdeen hadn’t won for 10 games, we went there and they beat us. Ross County hadn’t won a home game since May and are last in the league and once again Hibs obliged.

“Renew contracts for aging players. Get Ross out and enter Derek McInnes.

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

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

Stephen Johnstone, Ardentinney, said: “The only thing that accumulates on Jack Ross is his five league games without a win. They left the Boyle.

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

Also on Hibs, the dispute over tickets for the cup final continues.

Dougie Lyburn emailed: “It’s an absolute disgrace that Hibs won’t get 50 per cent of the tickets for this year’s League Cup final and an insult to suggest they couldn’t sell a such allowance.”

John Scott, Grassmoor, said: “It’s a final, played in a supposedly neutral venue for a reason. No advantage for either team, but it’s Scotland. Where our national stadium has a Rangers end and a Celtic end.

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

“Why should a club with 10,000 subscribers who couldn’t sell that much for a semi-final get an equal split?

“The Old Firm subscribers are regularly disappointed with these matches. Nowadays, surely it would be easy to take into account a ratio between season ticket holders and available tickets? »

Christopher Currie, Ayrshire, said: “Hibs couldn’t even sell a 10,000 allocation for a semi-final when Celtic sold 35,000 tickets and could have sold 10,000 more if given to them. Be real.

Rangers were in action in the Europa League last night, but Hampden’s downfall continues, particularly because of these quotes from Connor Goldson.

Derek Adese, Dundee, said: “I feel like because a Rangers player has come out and been absolutely honest about the state of the game, it means the club is rotten.

“He said exactly what we fans think, but he’s getting slaughtered for it.

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

Stuart McLeod said: “Rangers fans have every right to speak out when players show no desire or admit defeat after the game is only halfway through.

“Our former manager proved in a Champions League final in Istanbul what you can achieve with a little desire from what seemed like a hopeless position.”

Scott CassidyBridgeton said: “I am normally a very positive and upbeat Rangers fan.

“The last week or so is the lowest I’ve felt since the dark days of ten years ago. Gerrard was our club’s one and he’s now screwed and unlike some of you other fans I don’t don’t know how GVB will do with the lack of funds and with some underperforming stars.

Eddie Easson, Fife, said: “A trophy after so-called total dominance last season. Knocked out of the first trophy this season by an average Hibs. Mountains of debt that don’t seem to want to go down.

“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, Garrow Hill, said: “Fair play to Scott Brown for distancing himself from the FIFA Fair Play Award by saying to give it to a true hero.

“It was a nice gesture he showed Glen Kamara recently, but receiving a fair play award for it is laughable. This is Scott Brown we’re talking about.

It is clearly not yet the season of peace and goodwill.
