MILLIE’S COOKIES have said sorry after a design in one of their stores trolled Rangers about the club’s 2012 liquidation.

The world wide bakers often show off some customised designs in their shop window, but they were heavily criticised for one they created on Sunday.

A cookie design included a tomb stone with the dates 1872-2012 written on it, which is in reference to the Ibrox club being liquidated seven years ago.

One raging Gers fan spotted the design in Millie’s Braehead store and posted a picture online.

He claims the manager refused to speak to him despite phoning the store directly after his visit.

The Scottish Sun approached Millie’s for comment and a spokesperson said: “We apologise to anyone who was offended by one of our cookies and we have removed it from the display.

“This was clearly inappropriate and we are looking into how this incident occurred in order to ensure that it does not happen again.”

After Rangers were liquidated in 2012 the club was voted into the third division after a meeting of SPFL clubs.

Ten clubs voted against Gers returning to the Scottish Premiership.

Only the Ibrox club voted in favour, while Kilmarnock abstained.

Following liquidation eight months later and four seasons outside Scotland’s top flight, the Ibrox side returned to the Scottish Premiership in 2016.

Gers announced in 2012 that they would dedicate the number to fans who supported the club through administration and liquidation.

The shirt was occupied by Lee Wallace at the time, who later agreed to take up the No5 top.

But the number appears to have been dusted off for back-up goalkeeper Andy Firth.

The former Liverpool kid wore 32 after joining Steven Gerrard’s side from AFC Barrow in January.

However, ahead of Rangers’ 4-0 Europa League win over St Joseph’s, Firth announced on Instagram that he had changed numbers.
