Ibrox View: Sky Sports suggest Rangers only won title because of empty stadiums

Sky Sports have posted an embarrassing preview of the 2021/22 Scottish Premiership season for Rangers already.

It’s only been a couple of weeks since the Bears sealed an invincible campaign and lifted their 55th league title after crushing Celtic.

Despite that, it has been suggested that the fans returning to stadia next season could see the Light Blues crumble under the pressure.

Sharing the preview on their website, Sky Sports have suggested that most of our recent success has come from playing in empty stadiums.

“The return of supporters will add an interesting dimension; Rangers’ players buckled at times under the weight of expectation as Celtic marched to nine-in-a-row, and the feeling persists that this squad made the most of playing in empty stadia,” they wrote.

“Champions League football is also an enticing proposition, and “Fortress Ibrox” could become completely impregnable if Rangers kick on and improve once more in the coming months.”


We can’t believe what we are reading.

Did Celtic only collapse because they didn’t have any fans then? Every team didn’t have any support behind them this season so there are no excuses.

If anything, we missed out on that incredible support home and away that could have pushed us to win every single game and even bring home both domestic cups to Ibrox.

Imagine that 1-1 draw away at Hamilton, there would be no chance of them scoring that last-gasp equaliser if half of their ground was packed with blue shirts

Sky Sports can continue pushing this anti agenda since the banning of Andy Walker, but it won’t be long until they’re all pushed away with rubbish such as this being published.
