Heart & Hand hit back at Daily Record 'Nonsense' after Rangers v Napoli update

The Heart & Hand have hit back at the Daily Record suggesting Rangers’ clash with Napoli may now take place in Italy in the Champions League next week.

After doubts were raised about the Ibrox showdown due to policing concerns after the death of the Queen, it was suggested that a mad dash to Naples was on the cards.

The official club partner shut that down immediately, calling it “nonsense” that was never an option with the game still set to go ahead as things stand.

Writing on their official Twitter account, Heart & Hand did not hold anything back in response to what could potentially happen next week.

“This is complete nonsense and was never, ever an option,” they wrote.

It looks as though this was all made up for whatever reason.

Rangers are still set to welcome Napoli to Ibrox in what promises to be a huge night, and the perfect opportunity to pay our respects to the Queen on the biggest stage.

Giovanni van Bronckhorst will be desperate to get back in front of that home crowd after an embarrassing week on the road which led to some catastrophic defeats.

Losing 4-0 at Celtic in the first Old Firm of the Scottish Premiership season was bad enough, but then going to Ajax and losing by the same scoreline with an even worst performance was just embarrassing.

That doesn’t happen when Ibrox is bouncing, and even if Napoli smashed Liverpool on matchday one of the competition, they will not know what has hit them here.

Hopefully, this confusion has been put to bed now, but if it hasn’t, we will be given an answer sooner rather than later over the weekend.
