KRIS COMMONS told BBC Sportsound has weighed in on the guard of honour debate by suggesting both clubs should be in a position to be respectful towards one and other BUT if the shoe was on the other foot he’s not so sure Celtic would do it.
The question was put to the Ibrox club if they would be giving the newly crowned Scottish Premier League champions a guard of honour with Ibrox the first destination after they won the trophy. While this has been standard protocol for a while and Celtic have enjoyed it in recent years when they have won the league, Steven Gerrard’s men will NOT be taking part in any guard.
However, Kris is not convinced Celtic would do it if it’s the other way around.
“I think clubs are in a position where they should show respect to the champions.” as cited on SunSport.
“But you’re never going to get that with Rangers and Celtic.
“I would argue on the flip side, I don’t think Celtic would do it for Rangers.
“It’s just one of those things. For footballers anyway, you just want the whistle to go.”
Celtic go into the game on Sunday with not much to play for but bragging rights on the day. Celtic have bigger fish to fry at the end of the month and for what it’s worth I don’t think any Celtic player cares that much about any guard of honour.
