England specialist Paddy Kenny claims both Rangers’ disaster defeats would not have happened had they been played at Ibrox

RANGERS suffered back-to-back horror results this week as they conceded eight unanswered goals between Celtic and Ajax.

But England specialist Paddy Kenny claims that would never have been the case if they played at Ibrox.


Ajax won 4-0 on Wednesday

It’s been a week to forget for Rangers fans.

Gers were put to the sword by fierce Celtic rivals in the Old Firm derby on Saturday.

Liel Abada, Jota and David Turnbull all got on the scoresheet as they punched their Glasgow neighbors at Parkhead.

But it wouldn’t be easier for Giovanni van Bronckhorst’s side in the Champions League.

They traveled to Amsterdam to take on Calvin Bassey’s new team, but their fortunes did not change.

They were again hammered by the same score line, which was the first time the Ibrox side had lost 4-0 twice in a row since television was INVENTED.

But former Leeds goalkeeper Paddy Kenny has claimed the two historic performances would not have happened had they been played at home.

Speaking to Football Insider, he said Napoli and Liverpool would be a ‘different proposition’ to Govan.

Asked if the Gers will return to their best form once they return home and he replied: “It could affect them.”

“But you have to be able to bounce back from these kinds of results. You can’t just sit down and turn around.

“The Ajax game is a long way off. The next Champions League game is at home, it’s huge, I think that changes everything.

“Those two losses are both a long way from home and we know what that Ibrox crowd is like.

“The point is, those results wouldn’t have happened at home.

“So Napoli, Liverpool then Ajax back at Ibrox, it will be a different proposition and I think that can make or break their chances of going through.”
