Celtic fans on social media have reacted with anger to the remarks made by Scotland boss Alex McLeish that ‘Scottish football needs a strong Rangers’.

McLeish made the statement on Sky Sports following Celtic’s 5-0 demolition of the Ibrox side, which won the Hoops their seven consecutive league title.

Hoops fans are suitably disgusted by McLeish’s comments, with one fan claiming that Scottish football would improve dramatically if McLeish resigned from the Scotland job.

Some fans have also spoken about McLeish’s uses of ‘EBTs’ giving the Gers an unfair advantage when he managed the Ibrox side, whilst others have questioned why it only seems to be former Gers employees who want to see a srong Rangers side in Scottish football.

Here are some of the best reactions from Hoops fans on Twitter to McLeish’s comments:

It will be interesting to see what Hoops boss Brendan Rodgers makes of the comments when he speaks to McLeish about the prospect of taking Hoops players on Scotland’s end of season tour of South America.

No doubt Hoops fans will demand even more so now that Rodgers ensures that no Hoops players go on the tour and that they get enough rest and pre-season training before the Champions League qualifiers begin in July.
