It can’t be easy supporting Rangers at the moment.
Barely two weeks into the new season your team is already out of Europe after losing to Luxembourg minnows Progrès Niederkorn and you’re already five points behind your arch-nemeses in the league – having watched them win the title for SIX years in-a-row.
So Celtic’s five-goal drubbing of Astana in the Champions League play-off would’ve made for particularly difficult viewing for Gers supporters last week – with tomorrow’s dead-rubber of a second leg similarly palatable.
However, two hardy Gers fans have found hope in their despair by backing the Kazakh champions producing a miracle turn-around and beating the Hoops 6-0 at odds of 500/1.

Even Borat wouldn’t back that one, bless their hearts. Especially, when you consider that The Hoops are currently on a whopping run of 52 games undefeated domestically.
However, to recognise the duo’s ridiculous optimism, we’ve decided have paid out their winnings before the match has even kicked off.
Isn’t that sweeter than Irn-Bru and more heart-warming than a paper cup of Bovril?
Let’s face it, Rangers supporters are going to need something to celebrate this season.CELTIC VS ASTANA ODDS
