A Rangers fan CRIES on radio after crushing Champions League defeat to Malmo – but listeners think he was a cheeky Celtic supporter in disguise
- Rangers are out of the Champions League after losing to Swedish side Malmo
- A quickfire Antonio-Mirko Colak brace saw Rangers defeated at Ibrox
- Some fans are furious and one emotional supporter called into talkSPORT
- He broke down in tears but many believe he was a Celtic fan in disguise
A Rangers fan broke down in tears after phoning talkSPORT in the wake of his side’s defeat by Malmo.
The Ibrox club were stunned 2-1 (4-2 agg) and dumped out of the Champions League against the 10-man Swedish side on Tuesday night.
It was all too much to take for one devastated supporter who called up the radio station before his emotions took over, although some believe him to be a Celtic fan on a wind-up.
Steven Gerrard’s Rangers were dumped out the Champions League after losing to Malmo
When asked by Jamie O’Hara if Rangers crumbled, he replied: ‘Totally, totally mate, totally crumbled.
He then sobbed: ‘I cannae (sic) believe it.’
O’Hara then asked: ‘Are you crying, Paul? Are you alright?’
Paul managed to hold himself together and replied: ‘This was our big chance in the Champions League, they’ve (Celtic) got Ange Postecoglou, I can see them beating us honestly… I’m off.’
O’Hara and his colleague Jason Cundy then assured listeners that they would be checking back with the caller to see if he was alright.
Paul later called back once he’d collected himself but was still seething at the performance and even called for Gerrard to be sacked.
He said: ‘He’s got to go, honestly he’s got to go. He won the Covid cup, he won the league with no fans in, as soon as we got fans in, look what happened. We fell apart against 10 men.’
Some on social media smelled a rat and believe the Rangers fan was actually a Celtic supporter in disguise.
One listener wrote on Twitter: Mate, he’s no Rangers fan! The Covid Cup statement makes that 100 per cent clear! We know who he really supports.’
Another commented: ‘Wee hint for you… Paul isn’t a Rangers fan’.
Rangers have made a pitiful start to the season after their triumph last campaign ended Celtic’s chance to win 10 domestic titles in succession.
The Swedes overturned a one-goal deficit on the night to land a huge win at Ibrox on Tuesday
Gerrard’s side won plenty of plaudits for stopping the rot but early signs are not promising this term.
The first leg defeat in Malmo was followed up by a 1-0 loss against Dundee United in their Scottish Cup opener.
And Tuesday’s calamity was all the more disappointing with the Champions League play-off round there for the taking.
Rangers had the tie in their hands at the break after Alfredo Morelos had put them level on aggregate and Bonke Innocent was sent off after two yellow cards.
But some shambolic defending against the 10 men allowed the Swedes to score twice and put the game to bed.
