Simon Jordan winds up Celtic fans again, Rangers supporters will love his comments
By Amir Mir
Simon Jordan has wound up Celtic fans once again by claiming that their Old Firm rivals Rangers are a “bigger club”.
The former Crystal Palace owner recently backed the Gers to beat their neighbours during last Sunday’s Scottish Cup semi-final.
Unluckily for Jordan, Brendan Rodgers team won the fixture 2-0 and picked up their fourth win of the season against their rivals.
Nonetheless, Jordan has slated the state of Scottish football as he believes one team dominating the league is not good for development.
Prior to Rangers and Celtic kicking off again at the weekend, this is what Jordan had to say about both clubs, comments the Gers fans will love.

“One team dominating is not good for a competitive league which in turn is not good for development,” Jordan wrote on his personal Twitter account. “I think Rangers are a bigger club.”

It has been a season to forget for the Gers, who are 33 points behind Rodgers team in the Scottish Premiership table.
There is no doubt that, Celtic have steamrolled this campaign, dropping points on only four occasions and winning the league title by April.
Furthermore, they are on course to finishing the season unbeaten which will see them secure a domestic treble in Rodgers’ debut campaign at the club.
Pedro Caixinha can not stop Celtic from winning their third trophy of the season on Saturday afternoon at Ibrox, but they can end their unbeaten run.
The Light Blues have been one of four teams who have stopped the SPL champions from picking up all three points this term as they will be looking to go one further on Saturday.
