Paddy Power are offering an attractive 3/1 on Celtic finishing higher up in Champions League Group B than Sevco will in the Premiership.

The Dublin based bookie is never slow to pull a publicity stunt and had workmen out in force at Ibrox earlier this morning.

Five years into their journey Charles Green and Jim Traynor are still waiting to hear the Champions League anthem belting out over Ibrox.

Although, Celtic are 3/1 to finish in a higher position in Group B than Pedro Caixinha’s men manage in the Scottish Premiership. That’s if you fancy the remodel to continue into past the end of the season. Let’s face it, aren’t builders always getting delayed?

Asked about our rebuild at Ibrox spokesman Paddy Power said: “I’m sorry to say, Rangers fans, that your season is now effectively as good as over.

That’s hard enough to take, but with Celtic already basking in the glamour of the Champions League, clearly some serious rebuilding needs to take place at Ibrox.

Still, there’s always Partick Thistle away on Friday night, right lads?”

In keeping with the stance of a tribute act Penny Arcade and Simply The Best are still played at Ibrox to deflect the punters away from the basket case finances of the new club.

It’s believed that failure to reach the group stage of the Europa League has left a £6m hole in this season’s accounts which were already built around £10m of soft loans being supplied.

With £17m of soft loans due to be repaid in December of this year the auditors are going through some financial gymnastics to avoid another going concern warning.
