This is big news lads.

A few days ago, some saddos, including me in an ironic sense, felt it was highly dubious that new on-loan signing, Oliver Burke, had ‘55’ in his Twitter Handle, especially at a time Rangers fans are making big noises about going for their 55th league title.

Is he one of them ? Does he drink at The Crown Bar as well ? Did he vote against independence and this is also another wee sly dig at the good guys ?

Well, stand back!

The Daily Record have confirmed why he has ‘55’ in his @.

It’s because that is the number he wore coming through the ranks at Nottingham Forest.

We can sleep easy again lads!
