Celtic and Rangers fans are both slating Jim White on Twitter.
Scotland suffered a horrendous 3-0 defeat by Kazakhstan in a Euro 2020 qualifier on Thursday.
And Rangers fan White, speaking on talkSPORT radio show [22/03/2019], pointed the finger of blame at Celtic and their Old Firm rivals.
The Scot intimated that the Glasgow giants are partially to blame for the national team's woes by 'under-cuting each other in terms of tickets' and also brought up sectarian issues between the two clubs.
He said: "Celtic and Rangers should be ashamed of what they’re doing to Scotland. Celtic are too busy preoccupied trying to dominate Rangers, keeping them at arm’s length. Rangers are trying ot get back, competing again with Celtic.
"They’re too busy trying to undercut each other in terms of tickets for away fans. It’s pathetic. And they’re still trapped in sectarian bile. Rangers fans again had the finger pointed at them for verbally abusing Steve Clarke.
“They need to come out the Dark Ages, they have a duty to Scotland.”
But suffice to say that Celtic and Rangers fans don't agree with his assessment.

What nonesensense are you spouting Jim. 4 Celtic players in the squad would have been more if not for injuries. Players more than good enough. Look to the set up and the management.— Tony McMullan (@TonyMcM67) March 22, 2019

Celtic n Rangers fault? Not the managers?? Away n lie down— snackeramma (@snackeramma) March 22, 2019
The Bhoys had five players - including loanee Oliver Burke - on the bench in Kazakhstan and the Ibrox outfit had none.
But it seems fairly obvious that the man mostly to blame is Scots boss Alex McLeish. Had they won 3-0 instead of lost 3-0, he would be getting the credit and therefore it's nonsensical to overlook his part in the loss, arguably the country's worst of all time.
Rangers and Celtic face off at Parkhead next Sunday.
