PAUL LAMBERT has come in for some heavy criticism and rightly so after his comments on a five-year-old issue he clearly knows nothing about.
The former Celtic captain spoke about Rangers being demoted to the third division, when in actual fact the club had to start again after amassing an eye-watering amount of debt that was never paid back.
Lambert said it was “wrong” and bad for Scottish football to do so.
“It wasn’t good for the Scottish game, the Scottish league and certainly not for the national team.
“Celtic and Rangers, in years gone by, provided a lot of players for the national team and it’s mainly Celtic now.
That’s the bigger picture and people hadn’t really thought it through.
“Nobody thought, ‘Well how is this going to affect Scotland, the league itself, Glasgow as a city?’
“I think it was the wrong decision to put them down three leagues.”
All the top flight clubs didn’t get together and demote Rangers, they refused the new Rangers a free pass into the Premier League – refusing to pretend nothing had happened and for them to be admonished of debts they racked up cheating Scottish football.
Paul is clearly working his ticket for the Scotland manager role.
Here’s how Celtic fans reacted.
They broke the rules and got back in ahead of others. They were never demoted and if Paul Lambert really thinks that, then I hope he never has anything to do with Celtic again. Stupid thing to say for an ex Celtic Captain! https://t.co/0qtZBBOxUy

Paul Lambert was a great player for us and nothing will change that but he has uttered some amount of pure shite today…

Thank god for that article. I've been wondering what Paul Lambert's thoughts were on Rangers being demoted over 5 years ago.
