GERS LEGEND URGES FANS TO STAY AWAY FROM CELTIC GAME

0

RICHARD GOUGH has urged Celtic and Rangers fans to stay away from Parkhead with the third Glasgow derby scheduled for a week on Sunday.

The Ibrox legend and Scotland international skipper has implored supporters of both clubs to stay at home for the midday kick-off.

First Minister Nicola Sturgeon threatened the future of elite sport after Rangers supporters broke lockdown guidelines at the weekend as they to celebrated Steven Gerrard’s club’s first title win in a decade.

There were unruly scenes outside the stadium and in George Square and there were also demands from Green Party leader Patrick Harvie to take action while Labour’s Anas Sarwar and the Tories’ Ruth Davidson also criticised their actions.

Gough hopes the followers of both sides heed the warning and give the game a wide berth.

The ex-Gers skipper, speaking to Sky Sports News, said: “The club will be telling our supporters: ‘Look, stay indoors. There’s no use going down to Celtic Park, so stay indoors’.

“I would implore the fans to do that, as well, and I’m sure Celtic will do the same with their fans.

“We need the games to go ahead, we don’t want games getting postponed now, so, hopefully, the supporters listen to what both clubs say.”
