When Rangers were liquidated, a lot of people in Scotland thought they should be stripped of the trophies they won in the years they were affectively cheating, and maybe awarding them to the team who finished 2nd (Celtic) and in Cup Finals as well. None of that happened though, as the excuse was that they were won on the pitch.Yeh, the popcorn gif things you see are horrifically over used.
But in this situation, completely appropriate.
I think both clubs will have the book thrown at them. Especially City. It will take time. But I think deep down, fans of those clubs are slowly awaking from the denial they've been operating in. Mostly they are now going through the aggression stage.
What is worse, is that the relegations they will suffer, will mean they have no choice but to sell all of their stars, for a fraction of their worth because they have to now be FFP compliant and their income will have dropped by 99+%. They will also be facing colossal law suits from rival clubs.
And where will these stars go to? Liverpool. Man Utd. Arsenal. Newcastle
This reality is slowly dawning on their fans.
Oh it's going to be fun to watch
Even today there is still the debate with Rangers fans saying they are still the same club, where predictably Celtic and other fans saying it's a new club with no history etc.
