Rangers FC crowned themselves champion of Scotland 1.5 weeks ago. The team of trainer Steven Gerrard will visit Celtic on Saturday for a competition match, but they do not have to expect a hedge of honor there. The arch-rival does not want to honor the champion.
That reports, among other things Sky Sports. A little unsportsmanlike, you might think. But Celtic thinks they have a good argument for it: Rangers did not want to form a guard of honor last year, when Celtic became champion. Opinions on social media are divided:
That club never shows class and dignity 😂😂 what complete lies 😂 I think the majority of our fans are more than happy to not receive a guard of honour from them 😂 We’re just happy to have won 🏆 5️⃣5️⃣

Don’t want one. Friendly rivalry, kisses and cuddles at the end of derbies and half n half scarves can stay well and truly in the English Prem. Rangers and I very much doubt Celtic want to ever have a guard of honour.

Quite right, as a Rangers man I think this circus routine is crap. It’s a rivalry not a Disney movie

I’m with Celtic on this one. I would NEVER give a guard of honour to the likes of Liverpool or Man city
