Rice risks Moyes wrath with Scottish joke

Declan Rice appeared on the  TalkSPORT breakfast show on Monday following West Ham’s 2-1 win over Spurs and he couldn’t resist a cheeky question to radio host Ally McCoist.  “Can I just ask Ally something? How does it feel to celebrate 55 titles for the Rangers at the end of this season?”

McCoist is third in the all-time appearance table for Glasgow Rangers, having made 581 appearances for the club during his career.

McCoist replied jubilantly: “On you go Dec! You’ll do for me boy!”

Obviously, Rice is no fan of Celtic who are already 18 points behind Rangers in the Scottish Premiership table.

Rice will hope David Moyes will see the funny side as the manager played for Celtic between 1980 and 1983 where he won the Championship making 24 appearances.  Celtic fans were none too complimentary on social media about Rice’s on-air joke with McCoist.

McCoist couldn’t let Rice go without given the band a name, saying: “How about this for a name for your band, I’ve been thinking about it while we have been talking? Irons Maiden!”

  1. Dec, lets have it right lad. 55? How can a club that has not won 1, win 55? The Old Glasgow Rangers Died in 2012, because it didn`t pay its taxs. The Loyal True Blues not paying taxs to there Queen, but thats another story! This is a new club, Dec best to know your history before saying nonsense, your a proper lad for us, but Sally is delusional like many others who believe its the same club, where history says it is not, best not to encourage there sillness!

  2. I see we have a Celtic fan hanging around a West Ham comment section. They’re literally obsessed with Rangers and the whole Sevco thing. Their 10IAR is gone and Rangers will get their 55th League Championship.

    I’m not a Rangers fan, though, but I’m from a family of them, so I’d almost class them as my Scottish team.


    • I am West Ham Pal, was going for yrs. You are Delusional to think they will win 55! Catch yourself on you you mug. Obsessed? Just point out the facts!
