McAvennie: 'Stupid' Rangers are rocking the boat with new Celtic controversy

Frank McAvennie claims there is one rule for Rangers and one rule for the rest of the SPFL after the club’s latest controversy.

The Celtic icon, speaking exclusively to Football Insider, reacted after Rangers didn’t show off their 2020-21 league winner’s flag last weekend.

On 1st August, The Scottish Sun claimed Rangers could unfurl last season’s flag against Celtic later in the month.

This was due to possible changes in COVID guidelines with the Gers wanting to show off thier flag in front of a full Ibrox.

The club have now confirmed Ibrox can operate will a full capacity from next week.

This means the stadium should be full and ready for the flag ceremony by the time Rangers play Celtic on 29th August.

McAvennie can’t understand why Rangers are trying to rock the boat in Scotland unnecessarily.

“It’s one rule for one isn’t it, it’s ridiculous?” McAvennie told Football Insider correspondent Ben Wild.

“There are official ways to do things. Hearts raised their flag against Celtic.

“That was their first chance to do it with fans, the first day of the season and they did it.

“Rangers should have done it against Livingston. It’s got to be the first game.

“Why would you do it three or four games into the season? That’s just stupid.

“They are only creating problems for themselves. Scottish football is in a good place at the moment.

“Stop trying to rock the boat.”

Rangers are also reportedly in hot water over the fresh dispute with the SPFL.

On 1st August, The Scottish Sun claimed the Gers are “at war” with the league over their sponsorship deal with online car dealership Cinch.

In other news, McAvennie has also slammed Rangers for their ‘reckless’ new dispute that could damage every SPFL club
