Celtic Manager Neil Lennon today again called for Glasgow Rangers to be stripped of every single football title they have won over the past decade as he believes the club are guilty of arranging illegal contracts for players during this period. This would be a huge blow for Rangers who are currently struggling for survival in the Scottish premier league as it would mean they would be stripped of five premier league titles as well as four Scottish cups which they have won during this period. Lennon feel that this should be done to keep the integrity of the league after Rangers went into administration at the back end of last season due to many dodgey financial deals over the past few years.
