Steven Gerrard Reveals it Was Rangers’ Decision Not to Give Celtic Guard of Honour

Steven Gerrard Reveals it Was Rangers’ Decision Not to Give Celtic Guard of Honour

Steven Gerrard has revealed it was Rangers’ decision not to give Celtic a guard of honour – and not his.

The Ibrox manager spoke to the media this afternoon ahead of his side’s clash with their rivals on Sunday.

The build-up to the game has been partly dominated by talk of Rangers giving Celtic a guard of honour as they walk out at Ibrox after clinching the Scottish Premiership title.

It’s tradition for that to happen, but it’s since been confirmed that Rangers won’t stand and clap their Glasgow rivals on to the pitch.

And now Gerrard has revealed that the club took that decision, not him:

It’s not surprising that Rangers have taken this decision given the anger from their supporters regarding the subject.

There’s obviously a lot of animosity between both teams and both sets of supporters and the Ibrox club must feel this is the best course of action going into what should be a fiery encounter.
