Scottish football Rangers crisis - enough is enough


This year Ibrox Noise has been covering the cesspit of immorality that Scottish football has become with increased vigour, because it’s been necessary to do so. There’s a litany of offences all round our game leaving more than a bitter taste in the mouth such has been their ferocity and incessant persistence, and with last night’s appalling attack on Graham Dorrans while on holiday following on from March’s assault on Gary McAllister, two nonsensical pieces of malevolence in a row on Rangers men must be highlighted for the absolute disgrace it is.

True, this post-modern era of the UK is a pretty hate-filled and increasingly violent place, thanks to the rise of social media and extreme politics, but when it seeps into a man innocently trying to enjoy a summer break after a season from injury hell and another who was just trying to support charity by taking in a Liverpool legends match it becomes deeply distasteful.

Of course, any act of malevolence in any context is undesirable, but this recent acceleration of assaults on Rangers men is quite simply distressing.

We all saw McAllister’s scars from the attack, and unless they heal completely that man is left with them for the rest of his life, while a bottling of Dorrans left him grounded and flanked by police – it’s utterly abominable.

We know there’s a real hatefest going on in Scotland over everything Rangers, and it’s a nonsense now to suggest we’re paranoid, but that this toxicity has spilled over into not letting a man take in a charity football match in peace or enjoy his well-earned holiday is sinister beyond words.

Neither of these guys deserved this – no one ever does. Obviously not having witnessed either incident we can only go on source information, but it does appear this was purely an attack based on the fact he’s a Rangers player, and nothing he provoked otherwise.

And we can only conclude the same applies to McAllister.

We would argue this has got to stop, but the vile swill of horror that modern society has become just doesn’t seem to want to allow it.

In fact, if anything, it only gets worse by the day.

  1. This'll be swept under carpet and not a word mentioned in press, TV or radio - why because hes a Gers player and they dont get subjected to attacks due to team they play for ,wonder what verbal were uttered as the assailant struck GD?? Any guesses ?

  3. Well said. I've deleted the Facebook app because I see it for what it is, it's nothing but poison. People sitting behind a profile spewing bile that gets people's anger up.(I've been guilty of it myself) It's a breeding ground of hate and they know it. I don't believe people should be censored in what they say but if it wasn't for Facebook and the likes most folk wouldn't have a platform. Don't know who done it or the reason why but I doubt these attacks would have occoured if it wasn't for the hate that's drummed up on social media. I'm much happier that I don't know what's going on, I couldn't care for it now.

  4. Agreed. Braindead, inbred EastEnders, have pulled this kind of thing, once too often. Cowardly jackals.

  5. Not only that. But when there was a Celtic fan stabbed after the game at parkhead, all the media presumed it was sectarian violence and a Rangers fan who did the stabbing. Not one bit of coverage since to say it was only Celtic fans involved.

  6. I for one don't condone what happened to both garry mac and graham dorrans or anyone for that matter.But what i will say and i agree with what robhadd said.
    There will hardly be a mention in the press,but if it was their ned of a manager neil lemon,it would be plastered all over the media and statements like rangers thugs attack lennon again, because he's a northern irish catholic.This is fact.Its always magnified as poor wee lennon.I'll reiterate that nobody deserves this sort of treatment and i want my club to personally kick it into touch.But the media coverage can't be all ONE SIDED.There's good and bad on both sides of the divide,so the media should tell it as it is.

  8. Come on guys we are starting to sound like the East End tramps and beggars methadone teeth is nothing to do with this a can't even say his name. But we do have our issues there is Flanagan for a start with his burd so as the saying goes people in glass houses should not throw stones. McCallister and Dorans situations happen week in week out and it's never called out as Rangers or Celtic issue let's get real.
