‘Nonsense man’: These Rangers and Celtic fans condemn rescheduled kick-off time

It’s not often fans of Rangers and Celtic agree on anything, but they have come together to roundly condemn the decision to reschedule next week’s derby.

The game was originally scheduled to kick off on Saturday at 4pm, but that will now clash with Prince Philip’s funeral.

It was confirmed on Monday afternoon that the Scottish Cup fourth round tie will now go ahead at 3pm on Sunday.

That news has been met with anger from both sets of the divide, as many take issue with the idea that football must accommodate an event that’s of little interest to the majority of them.
