Journalist takes dig at Rangers as he shares BBC article

Ewan Murray has silenced a Rangers fan bragging about the club’s prowess in European competition.

Ahead of the Europa League semi-final against RB Leipzig, the Guardian journalist sent a link from the BBC which was a match report from 2017.

After winning the first leg 1-0, Gers managed to get knocked out of the Europa League qualifying by a 2-1 aggregate scoreline against Progres Niederkorn.

After writing ‘Indeed’, Murray shared the link via his personal Twitter account.

Bizarre

The fan obviously spoke about the club’s performances in Europe since Steven Gerrard took over at the helm.

They have gone from strength to strength in the Europa League and were even on the cusp of qualifying for the Champions League.

For him to bring up a one-off result from 2017, is so bizarre and it’s proof that Rangers are living rentfree in his head.

The media bias against the Gers is pretty obvious and this is another blatant example of their transparency being exposed.

For us, it’s like water off a duck’s back and surely the dressing room will also not be paying any heed to such baseless criticism.

They’re capable of not just getting the job against Leipzig, but also going all the way and lifting the Europa League.

None of the other clubs are quite as experienced as them in Europe and big games and that’s definitely going to count for something.

In other Rangers news, the club are ‘not convinced’ by a key first-team player and an early termination of his contract is extremely likely.
