BBC journalist Tom English had another wee dig at Graeme Souness when commenting on the news that Motherwell have now sold well over 80% of their tickets for next Sunday’s Betfred Cup Final against holders Celtic.
Celtic have already sold out their already extended allocation and the Fir Park side are reporting that demand is strong for their remaining briefs. That of course is bad news for any ticketless Celtic supporter hoping that there will be some hand backs for Celtic to release.
It’s also bad news for the likes of Souness, Rae and the rest who have been busy in the papers and on the radio over the past few weeks telling us that Scottish football needs a strong Rangers. Apparently some people used to ask Rae for a lift up to Scotland to watch games when Rangers were strong, now they aren’t interested.
English called Rae out on this on Sportsound one evening, going through the clubs in the league and asking if they needed a strong Rangers.
It is clear that Motherwell don’t – they Fir Park men beat Pedro Caixinha’s weak Rangers quite easily in the end to earn their place in next Sunday’s final, where they will face a strong Celtic!
More than 80% of allocation already sold. Impressive. Somebody get Graeme Souness on the phone… https://t.co/tLn7MmzMwz
