Rangers fan baffled by rejection of Airbnb in Glasgow due to “inexperience”
An East Coast Rangers fan was baffled when his Airbnb booking in Glasgow was rejected due to his “inexperience”.
Ryan Brown of East Lothian has tried to book accommodation for next weekend when the Rangers are set to win their first league title in 10 years.
However, his plans were dashed when the property’s host decided to reject his reservation, explaining that he did not have enough “experience” to deserve a stay.
Ryan, from Tranent, was shocked at the reason and responded to the host saying he was looking for a room, not a job interview.
Ryan posted a screenshot of the particular interaction on Twitter on Tuesday, writing: “I’m trying to sort out a blunder in Glasgow for the 15th and was turned down due to inexperience…”

Dozens of social media users left messages on the post.
