Video – The day French Eddie put a stop to the Free Broomloan

The date as 12 March 2018, theRangers v Celtic at Ibrox and The Celtic Star called it a Beautiful Sunday. With just six points separating the sides the title race was relatively tight, albeit Celtic still had a game on hand.

The Ibrox support was upbeat and dreamed of Graham Murty’s Galacticos doing the impossible and sealing a win that would lead to an unlikely title success.

Despite a good start, taking an early lead and later having the advantage of playing with an extra man, the Govan Galacticos once again fell short of the expectations placed on their shoulders.

Instead it was Odsonne Edouard who curled an expert strike past Wes Foderingham in theRangers goal to clinch a vital three points which all but confirmed the title for Brendan Rodgers side.

This goal absolutely broke theRangers support. Their usual delusions allowed them to believe that they were somewhat of a match for that Celtic side.

But with one touch of French Eddy’s right boot it was curtains. The free Broomloan erupted and a sea of green and white celebrated what turned out to the winning goal and a title clinching one at that. And theRangers support sank to their knees as they knew this fine well, their league challenge was over, beaten by ten men on their own patch after having taken the lead twice.

Not only was it the day that theRangers title aspirations for that season died, but also the day that the full allocation in the free Broomloan ended. The wild and joyous Celtic celebrations were just too much for the Bears to bear. So they came up with this plan, lest we forget…
