Motherwell chief shares angry letter from Rangers fan, issues brilliant response on Twitter
By Danny Wright
Motherwell chief operating officer Alan Burrows has shared an image of a letter from an angry Rangers fans about the Scottish League Cup semi-final last month.
The Light Blues were dumped out of the competition at Hampden Park in a very physical affair that could have easily seen a number of players sent off.
Stephen Robinson’s side booked their spot in the final against Celtic later this month with a 2-0 win over the Gers, in what was the penultimate game in Pedro Caixinha’s time in charge at Ibrox.
Burrows shared the passionate letter on his personal Twitter account, that was written entirely in capital letters and even said that he hoped Celtic beat Motherwell in the final, with a handy score prediction of 3-0 to the Hoops.
Although it was clear that the Rangers supporter was still fuming about the game two weeks ago, the Premiership club’s chief had a light-hearted view on the letter.

“Got this beaut in the post today! Particularly enjoyed the abuse, quickly followed by the polite PTO request. Page numbers also a winner,” he said on Friday to the letter that can be viewed on his Twitter.
Rangers defender Fabio Cardoso is yet to return to action after he was on the end of a Ryan Bowman elbow in the second half that has required him to undergo surgery.
Goalscorer Louis Moult also received a cut to his head in the first-half and Caixinha and Robinson were both sent to the stands in the emotional clash.
