“Work progresses at pace,” Celtic brilliantly troll Rangers

Celtic’s official X/twitter account has this afternoon brilliant trolled theRangers who as you know are having major problems with their Copeland Road stand building works which have run into difficulties and have already cost a senior member of staff his job.

David Murray, once the owner of the previous club, famously built the stands at Ibrox using his own steel duty these days they are shopping for bargains in China and things have fallen behind schedule with Ibrox now confirmed to be out of action until at least September.

Celtic meanwhile are progressing nicely with their own building works as the new training centre at Barrowfield comes together on schedule and with all the steelwork already on site and in situ for the next stage of works to proceed.

Celtic’s update on their own construction work at Barrowfields fooled no-one and is a case of rubbing salt into the Ibrox wounds. And it’s fair to say that Celtic Supporters are loving it!

    As far as I know David Murray only built the Club Deck and filled in the corners at Ibrox.
    The three main stands had already been built in the late seventies and early eighties.
    With regards Barrowfield we were initially told that the ladies matches would also be played there with a stand built along one of the pitches. That plan had to be shelved due to access issues so, when completed, the Celtic Ladies will still gave to pay Airdrie to play on an AstroTurf pitch.
    The issues The Rangers have though will lead to a large loss of revenue that they can’t really afford.
    Interesting times.
