Rangers are a club that stays in the hearts of many, whether they still play at Ibrox or have moved on with their careers.

The Old Firm rivalry with Celtic is something that is globally known and still plays a massive role in the actions of most to this day.

Tony Mowbray introduced a huddle at Celtic during his time in charge during the 1990s, and it is a tradition that is heavily linked to Parkhead despite the familiarity of the action.


The Athletic have shared an interesting piece on Monday, with David Ornstein reporting that many Rangers-linked players continue to snub huddles, despite not being at the club.

“Eagle-eyed watchers of the game, though, have spotted a number of players in England avoiding the huddle due to their Rangers links,” he wrote.

“John Fleck and Oli McBurnie of Sheffield United both stand rather than bending down to join their team-mates in the huddle ahead of every game. Fleck came through Rangers’ academy, while McBurnie grew up supporting them.

“In the Championship, Derby’s George Edmundson — on loan from Rangers — also stands for his side’s huddle because of his connection. With the rivalry as strong as ever, do not expect a change in this huddle muddle any time soon.”



No matter how long you have played for the club, there is no forgetting everything it stands for, and what it means to be blue.

The Bears are back on the big stage, and even during the tough times in recent years, traditions linked with Celtic have been snubbed elsewhere.

Fleck and Edmundson have tasted that at Ibrox, and it even goes as far as McBurnie, who snubs the tradition after supporting the club growing up.

That determination and drive are what is setting the Light Blues apart, with Celtic clearly moving backwards on the pitch, the only way is upwards for the mighty Bears.

Something so small as standing up in huddles can portray such a bigger message, and this confirms just how big of a club this really is.
