Old Govan Arms was robbed on April 30 following the Celtic v Rangers match on Sunday. The thieves took the pub’s small safe that contained £9,000 and its CCTV recording device.
License manager Paul Martin said that this latest financial trouble could spell the end for the bar.
He said: “Our pub is quite deceiving inside – it has different entrances, a basement and a lounge.
"We were too busy looking out for anyone causing trouble that day. People were coming in and out all the time. You don't expect to be robbed until it happens."
He added: "I'm absolutely gutted. The money aside, they've stolen from the people in the community who drink in this pub."
Paul is urging locals to “check their bins and backyards” for the recording device, which could help identify the culprit.
"Someone must know something. These things always come out in the end," he said.
A spokeswoman for Police Scotland said: "We received a report at 11:45am yesterday of a break-in overnight. Enquiries are at an early stage and officers are trying to establish what happened and what was taken."
