  17. Celtic fans buy newspaper advert saying Rangers are a 'new club'

    A group of Celtic fans have paid for an advert in a newspaper saying Rangers are a "new club".

    The advert is a lengthy statement in the Sunday Herald which claims Rangers became a new club following liquidation in 2012.

    It comes ahead of the two Glasgow teams playing in the semi-final of the Scottish league cup on February 1.

    The advert reads: “As Celtic supporters, we regrettably recognise that our club had an association with Rangers (1872) through the collective descriptive term, The Old Firm. We believe this term is now redundant following the liquidation of Rangers (1872)."
