Celtic WON’T be given a Guard of Honour at Ibrox on Sunday.
Neil Lennon’s side clinched the SPFL title away to Aberdeen on Saturday with the long established convention being that their next opponents form a Guard of Honour to clap the champions onto the pitch in their next fixture.
Last night a few social media channels with contact to the inner workings of the club reassured fans that the convention would be ignored with The Sun confirming that news this morning.
RANGERS will NOT give Celtic a guard of honour before Sunday’s Old Firm derby showdown.
SunSport can reveal the Ibrox club won’t consider making the gesture to pay tribute to the eight-in-a-row Premiership champions.
After Sunday’s win over Hibs Steven Gerrard said that he had still to discuss with the club the issue of a Guard of Honour with the club.
This is the latest incident from the Ibrox club that shows their anger and dismay at the success across the city, coming a year after they decided to cut Celtic’s ticket allocation to Ibrox from 7,000 down to 800.
Celtic responded with the same move with the anger of Gerrard’s side spilling over in the last two derby matches.
In December Alfredo Morelos was involved in separate incidents involving Scott Brown, Tony Ralston and Ryan Christie.
Following Celtic’s win at the end of March Morelos, Ryan Kent, Andy Halliday and Gerrard all served suspensions.
