Paddy Power pays two Rangers fans on Celtic losing 6-0 at Astana22nd August 2017 / lee
Tuesday night sees Celtic try and secure their place in the Group Stage of the season’s UEFA Champions League. The Scottish Champions kick off in Kazakhstan against Astan in the second leg of their play off tie and the Bhoys are 5-0 to the good already. They totally destroyed their opponents at Celtic Park a week ago which means that they can just cruise their way to the money-making group stage. Last season in the third round of the Champions League play offs, Celtic took a 3-2 nail-biting aggregate win over Astana.
But this is going to be a much more comfortable ride for them this time around and Celtic should be smiling broadly at the end of this. But as a Glasgow Celtic fan, it must be pretty hard to watch your rivals just go from strength to strength. On top of having seen Celtic win the Scottish Premiership in each of the last six seasons, Rangers are already five points behind them early into the new season and the Gers were dumped out of the Europa League qualifying by Luxembourg minnows Progrès Niederkorn.
So even though Tuesday night’s game has the look of being nothing more than a dead rubber, two Rangers fans threw an optimistic punt on Astana getting the win that they would need to move through. Astana are a price of 500/1 at Paddy Power to land a 6-0 win that would see them through and those two Rangers fans backed that miracle with the bookmaker to happen. While it is highly unlikely of course, Paddy Power decided to reward the optimism of those two Gers fans by paying out before the match has even kicked off.
