A number of Celtic supporters have reacted to Gordon Smith’s bold suggestion that Rangers would’ve won Sunday’s League Cup final had VAR been in use.
The former Ibrox director of football claimed that Christopher Jullien’s winning goal would’ve been ruled offside had Willie Collum been able to consult with VAR, and Rangers would have gone on to lift the trophy at Hampden.
These Celtic fans clearly disagree however, and are thoroughly enjoying the fact that excuses are still being made.

READ CELTIC VERDICT
It’s brilliant to hear the excuses continue, and even better is the fact that Rangers would have likely suffered had VAR been in use at Hampden.
Firstly the side-on replay of Jullien’s goal shows Filip Helander’s arm playing the Frenchman offside, meaning the goal would have stood under VAR.
Furthermore, the video assistant would have also alerted Collum to the challenges committed by Alfredo Morelos and Scott Arfield respectively, which should have resulted in red cards.
