Hope there is no trouble but can't see Rangers fans not embarrassing themselves.

It'll be nearly 40 degrees, they'll have been drinking for days and their fanbase is congenitally furious. With those ingredients, you'd imagine it's a certainty.

I see they are trying to direct Rangers fans without tickets to watch the game on big screens inside one of the other stadiums, which theoretically will be about four miles from the nearest German, and nicely isolated away from the city centre, so it may be Shangri-La after all.

On the radio this morning some were saying that if The Rangers were to win this, it would be the greatest achievement of a Scottish club in Europe. Then they went on to say that although Celtic fans may disagree, it was a more level playing field back in '67.

Completely ignoring anything to do with Aberdeen already winning the same competition, and the Super Cup. 

It just really fucked me off more than it should have done.

Celtic have won the more prestigious tournament.

Aberdeen (A smaller club) have won the same tournament, plus the Super Cup.

But these wallopers, jumping on board the The Rangers love in, think that this is the greatest achievement.

f**k off.

I hope they get pumped.

In fairness, they would be the youngest club to win a Euro Trophy.

It's not the same tournament though as if it were, Rangers would have been out already seeing as they were beaten over two legs by Lyon.

Aberdeen won the Cup Winners' Cup. No Scottish club has ever won the UEFA Cup/Europa League.

Wonder what next year's strip will look like.

OK, but it was essentially the 2nd most prestigious European trophy you could possibly win at the time, as is this one.

English's latest piece on the BBC website would give you the boak. So far up Rangers arse these days

Aye read that.

A remarkable achievement if they can do it but the Europa League is for the best of the rest and certainly cannot be described as Everest or the summit of Europe.

 

It's just not the Champions League Tom.

Ignoring the dons element, it’s just wrong. It’s not the same as winning the European cup. It just isn’t.

Rangers have probably beaten better teams than Celtic did in 1967 though. Celtic's entire run to that final consisted of Zurich, Nantes, Vojvodina Novi Sad and Dukla Prague.

Aberdeen beat Bayern Munich and Real Madrid. What's your point?

If you're seriously trying to equate Rangers winning this with Celtic winning in 1967, where does Rangers being pumped out of Europe's top competition by Malmo at the start of August come in?

I'm not trying to equate it to anything in particular beyond making the point that the European Cup in 1967 was not the same as the Champions League in 2022. Clearly winning the former will always be a bigger achievement given that it's the ultimate prize, but it doesn't mean it was actually harder to win than it would be for Rangers this time around.
