Tam McManus furious at Rangers and Celtic fans after what happened in Viaplay Cup final clash
Tam McManus was absolutely furious with Rangers and Celtic fans after they sang through the one minute silence for Hibernian owner Ron Gordon.
The clubs took part in honouring the late owner after he passed away earlier this week, but there were loud chants against each club heard from the stands.
Former Hibs forward McManus was furious at the situation, and took to his personal Twitter account (26 February) to express his annoyance at the situation.
“Couldn’t just respect someone for one minute but had to sing their bile,” he wrote.

The chants were audible from both sets of fans, and it’s wrong and has to stop.
This rivalry between Rangers and Celtic is obviously far bigger than football, but not all things are lesser than the rivalry and life is one of them.
Gordon was a big loss to the world of Scottish football and a minute of silence for him before such a big occasion wasn’t a big ask at all.
We can always expect Celtic to let people down, but our fans in attendance should know better and do better too because it wasn’t acceptable or nice to hear.
Hopefully it won’t happen again in the future when other instances such as these occur, and we can learn from this mistake and improve on it.
The result obviously wasn’t ideal either which makes the whole day worse, but as mentioned before, some things are bigger than football and this is one of them.
