Rod Stewart has delivered his verdict on the one-sided League Cup final that Celtic won 1-0 but Rangers dominated.
Rangers were by far the best side on the day and were unlucky not to come away with the silverware.
The Celtic goal should have been ruled out for offside but it was another game that will go down in the annals of bad Scottish officiating.
Talking on the Jim White show on talkSPORT (Monday, 10.30am), Stewart said that Rangers were “robbed”.
“I don’t know what happened in the first half, whether we were really poor or whether Rangers were really good,” Stewart said.
Asked about whether he thought the Celtic goal was offside and whether Scotland should invest in VAR, Stewart said, “Well I don’t know why [we don’t have VAR], whether it’s expensive. But yes, there were three players offside and I’m not sure how the referee missed them. Rangers were robbed.
“Gerrard has done wonders for Scottish football, but at the end of our day it’s our cup, it’s still green and white.”
It might be, but it shouldn’t be.
The attack momentum graph from SofaScore paints a very vivid picture of just how dominant Rangers were. Rangers are in green at the top and Celtic are in blue… Blame SofaScore for the colours!
It’s about as one-sided a match as you’ll see in an old firm clash. That’s what Rangers have to take heart from after a match that will hurt for some time.
