Rangers news: Tom Miller reacts to allegation made over comment on Celtic youth player Rocco Vata

Tom Miller has denied making a “passive aggressive” comment against a Celtic B player in their defeat to Rangers B on Tuesday.

The CeltsAreHere Twitter account shared a video clip of Rocco Vata’s goal in the Glasgow Cup semi-final penalty shoot-out, which was commentated on by Miller.

In the video clip, Miller is heard saying: “He’s qualified to play international football for Scotland, Albania and Republic of Ireland. Guess which he’s picked.”

After seeing he’d been alleged of making a passive aggressive comment at Vata’s choice to play for Ireland internationally, Miller responded on his personal Twitter account, saying: “Passive aggressive? Only made an observation – I make no judgement.”

Grow up


Celtic have strong Irish connections, we all know that.

Miller is simply suggesting that to listeners of his commentary when talking about Vata’s international choice.

There’s no change of tone in Miller’s voice whatsoever so we cannot understand why this allegation has been made.

Oh, wait. It’s just a Celtic fan looking to make an issue out of nothing and start some kind of dispute for no reason.

How sad.

Rangers have gotten the better of Celtic in their last three meetings at all levels now with the B team winning at Parkhead in the Lowland League, the senior side winning at Hampden in the Scottish Cup semi-final and now the B team winning again in the Glasgow Cup semi-final.

Celtic may be the favourites to win the Scottish Premiership, but what about the cup. And, also, where are they in Europe?

Their fans are more than likely bored because of the limited number of games they’ve been able to watch this season.
