Haris Vuckic Humiliated in Rangers Matchday Programme

A photo of Rangers' SLOVENIAN loan signing, Haris Vuckic, posing with match programme, emblazoned with Slovakian flag
As we all know, Newcastle loaned out five players to former Scottish heavyweights Rangers on transfer Deadline Day.  Though collectively the Newcastle five have struggled for gametime so far in Scotland, Haris Vuckic is the only one to have featured in both of Rangers' games since the Deadline Day move. Having scored on his debut against Raith Rovers, Rangers boss, Kenny McDowall started him against Hibernian on Friday.
And in the build-up to the game, it was decided that Vuckic would be on the front cover of the matchday programme - a nice gesture, one might suppose. The photo above depicts the 22 year-old standing proudly with the programme in both hands.
However, the flag in the background,  is actually that of Slovakia, and not his home-nation, Slovenia!
One might suggest that they were recycling the matchday programmes from yesteryear , from the days when they boasted the likes of Slovakian Vladimir Weiss and Felip Sebo. 
However, having delved a little deeper, the image below suggests they couldn't even get that right - a few years ago, hawkers outside Ibrox tried to sell Rangers fans souvenirs of Slovakian star Vladimir Weiss - with his face plastered on a flag of the Czech Republic...
Oh dear Rangers…

    You are now the second blog to insist that Vuckic has been humiliated. Obviously you are suffering from the after effects of stress caused by all this jumping. To conclusions. On the bandwagon.
    Do you even know the meaning of the word “humiliation”?

    Vuckic himself does not seem too bothered, and standing there with the programs in his hand does not appear in the least bit humiliated.

    He’s playing first team football for Rangers, he’s playing well and receiving plaudits for his efforts. Why do sites like this try to create issues where there aren’t any?

  2. The lad is smiling and sees the humour in the cock up, it is only you lot that should be ashamed to stoop so low to prove your point.

  3. Moron. Slovenia is white, blue & red … so is the background. The only humiliation on display here is your own!

    • Oh dear Julio… Maybe you should take a look at the flags together. Yes, they are both white, blue and red, but if you actually bother to look closer, you can see the centripetal emblem, the coat of arms, is that of a Slovakian flag, as opposed to the Slovenian mountain range… Pipe down.
