Would like to ask you lads a question, why is it that a lot of posters on this site don’t care about their national team? As a NI and Rangers supporter, I always want best for both teams, I would class myself as a loyalist not just unionist and I love my wee national team. The Scottish people are very patriotic people, that’s why I find it strange.

The attitude and actions of SFA over a number of years largely explains this.

Me personally like yourself Ulsterman I’m a Unionist but I’m Scottish . I believe that the SFA and SPFL make life hard for Rangers at any given opportunity. Senior figures have came out in the press and admitted themselves that they could have done more for us in the run up to the Europa League final and Manchester but choose not too and these people are supposed to do what’s best for Scottish football so when one of your country’s teams gets to a final and you don’t help them in anyway you can seems like Anit-Rangers too me plus I’ve seen Ian Black and Ryan Jack both bood by there own fans (Scotland fans) while representing there country . My dad used too tell me of times he went to Scotland games on Rangers busses with Union Jack flags went too Wembley and there was no English there . Changed days .

Don’t know about you Ulsterman but Rangers comes before everything aside from my family .

Thanks Abear
Your words explains a lot, I never thought Rangers players playing for their country were subjected to abuse by
“ some “ Scottish fans, it used to happen here as well re- Lennon? But doesn’t happen now, we’ll I haven’t heard it, I wouldn’t care what team our players played for as long as they played their best for NI, and our association backs our manager to the hilt. We are a very small country and must rely on some players with English backgrounds, Scotland have some great players and should be up there with the best, it’s strange why they aren’t? SFA are not up to it by your thinking, pity, as I said before you Scots are a very patriotic people and deserve better.

The SFA extended the league for you the year you got to the final, which is more than they done for us in 2003. Also they postponed games for you earlier in the season, which again is more than they done for us.

23 Mar 2019 17:16:00
Ulsterman Rangers played 4 games in 10 days before a European final and as I said in my previous post a few months ago in the Sun I read an ex SFA employee admiring they could have done more and chose not to .

As for Scotland we are the worst football team out of all the home nations IMO I watched use against Estonia deserved to wi. nd very strong at Windsor park.

23 Mar 2019 17:19:20
Beg your pardon it was 5 games in 11 days.

23 Mar 2019 17:56:57
Why don't you tell us why you had a fixture pile up at the end of the season?

Could you also tell us what help Celtic got when we got to the UEFA cup final?

By the way the person you are talking about is George Peat and he said that the SFA couldn't help you as the SPL fixtures were determined by the SPL and it angered him, probably because he is a blue nose. It was Peter Lawwell who told them where to go when they tried to do more jiggery pockery to help you out, as we were not aforded any help in 2002/ 03.

23 Mar 2019 18:06:20
so that's the way we are then Lennon, we didn't get it so why should you. surely the less biased answer would be they should be helping any team that is in europe, hopefully then helping the co-efficient but as usual is such a biased response.

23 Mar 2019 18:09:43
No I can’t tell you anything about Celtic as I have no interest in them whatsoever .

23 Mar 2019 18:39:27
@ lennon at work let's not talk about that eh buddy were the had the extension first time ever in history. Yet were was celtics extension Got there fixtures moved to help them yet still were not happy. Maybe the sfa should have just gave them the points instead of playing the matches and let them stay fresh for the knuckle drag run to the uefa cup final. Anthoerbear what other sort of help apart from league being extended were use looking for. In what other way possible could use have been helped.

23 Mar 2019 18:48:06
As I told your “ buddy “ I don’t know where your extension was as I have zero interest in Celtic can’t say the same for you guys on a Rangers page on a Saturday night 😂. Obsessed with the Rangers?

You’ve answered your own question as well they could have just given us the points?

More penalties kicks would have been nice as well.

23 Mar 2019 19:01:17
Aye 4 games in 8 days and 5 in 11 was a great help. Zenit had a full week and a half to prepare. I remember Dick Advocaat, the Zenit manager, remarking on how he wasn't surprised at the "help" we got prior to the final. Your lot had an unencumbered run to the final that year, assisted by your feeder club (Dundee Hibs) . When that same rancid lot were asked to assist us in the same manner they refused. Par for the course.

23 Mar 2019 19:15:35
You got the help earlier in the season as they postponed matches before important fixtures, which was more than we got.

You also got the season extended to help you, albeit a very short extension, which again was more than we got.

I don't recall any Celtic fan moaning that we didn't get help when we got to UEFA final, probably because we don't have that sense of entitlement the Rangers' fans have.

23 Mar 2019 21:24:22
Do I detect a little sarcasm in your post? I thought all you Celtic supporters were saints and scholars?

23 Mar 2019 21:46:18
Too many of your chicken dinner was made by a guy whos dog had a Scottish cousin, son would you like to play international for football for us for me. Players who only want to play when it suits them.

23 Mar 2019 22:22:24
A quote from alex mcleish when wee got to the final was. They should just stop moaning and get on with it wee wish we were in there postion 😂 Well use got to our postion years later and all use did was moan about it and that's with a extension aswell 😂😂😂😂.

23 Mar 2019 23:21:34
Lennon at work, why are you even on here? Simply to stir up trouble and argue with Rangers fans? It's all about the Rangers whether it's good or bad everything is about Rangers. Is that your problem? Your club is winning everything but still, everyone is takking about Rangers because nobody cares enough about Celtic to talk about them, not even your own fans, they are ALL on here talking about Rangers, that must sting.

23 Mar 2019 23:23:25
Because some idiots mistake the SFA with their national side. The team selected by the national manager represent their country not the SFA. They probably think the SFA are a bunch of clowns as well.

24 Mar 2019 08:36:32
Got to laugh at this absolute baffoon Lennon on here, a quick check on Wikipedia reveals how many games Celtic had in their 11 days previous to their uefa CF. The answer being 2 games. Rangers had 5 games in the same period. Absolute head banger to claim Celtic didn't receive any help and Rangers did! What help did Celtic need in that period exactly?

24 Mar 2019 08:40:58
Exactly L17mac

I worry about some our fans because of this as if the SFA pick the Scottish team it’s embarrassing.

24 Mar 2019 11:31:29
Lennonatwork what games were postponed during that season to help us out? Also what ever did happen on the end of season tour of japan plus the fixture backlog was due to the death of Phil O’Donnell and severe weather conditions.
