Steve Clarke thanks Chelsea in passionate post-match interviews

After the Rangers match, Steve Clarke didn’t hold back in his criticism of the sectarianism still rife in Scotland.

The former Chelsea coach thanks the Premier League side from previously taking him away from Scotland.

Clarke slammed the Rangers fans as living in the “dark ages”, while he compared sectarian violence to racism:

What are we doing in Scotland?

I wake up every morning and I thank Chelsea for coming and taking me away from the west of Scotland because my children don’t understand this.

They don’t have anything to do with this, my children have nothing to do with this. They don’t understand.

When I go down there, my children and my grandchildren don’t need to worry about this.
