Outrage From Irishman As Englishman Takes Scottish Job

Outrage From Irishman As Englishman Takes Scottish Job
By Eoin Lyons

There has been widespread condemnation from Irish Liverpool supporter Declan Hurney as English footballer Steven Gerrard has announced that he is set to manage Scottish football team Glasgow Rangers.

Lifelong Liverpool and Celtic supporter Hurney, was bowled over by the news that former Liverpool captain was set to take the reigns at Ibrox, and had to take the day off work in order to digest the news:

It completely knocked me for six. The vague sense of sectarian pride I feel every time I watch an Old Firm has been severely compromised. I mean... I have Gerrard lifting the European cup on my left arse cheek, how can I boo Rangers in good faith now? I've had to contact a counsellor about the whole thing, I don't know whether I'm coming or going.

When pressed on how big of a Celtic fan Hurney was, the Dublin native explained that while he doesn't watch any games other than the Old Firm matches, he does catch the odd Champions League game, and still has the jersey from their UEFA Cup run in 2003.

On the other side of the coin, a friend of Hurney, Manchester United and Celtic fan Paul Dunne has welcomed the appointment of the BT Sport pundit:

I think it's an inspired choice by the Rangers board. They've taken my two least favourite things in Liverpool and Rangers and managed to combine them in such a way that I can take the piss out of Deco. It's a great day for b*nter.
