SPL peers must follow Rangers’ lead, pronto

Yesterday’s letter to the Scottish and UK government offering Ibrox as a vaccination centre is simply Rangers setting the example we all hope the others will follow.

Plenty of precedents have been set in England, so this is by no means being pioneered by Rangers, but we are the first club to offer it north of the border, and naturally we hope and expect other clubs to follow this example, including our beleaguered chums across the city.

This is not a time for point scoring or ‘I’m better than you’ or anything else, just get with the program and offer your stadium as a facility for the NHS and aid with the fight against this thing.

We hope also that both governments do accept Rangers’ offer, albeit a debate in parliament over whether or not to make incoming arrivals to the nation test negative as standard (we believe) does suggest the old p*ss up in a brewery paradigm.

But the reality is the quickest way out of this thing is with the wide-scale vaccination and of course following the rules.

And Rangers are helping with both of these, aside Jones and Edmundson’s moment of madness.

Hopefully everyone else will too.
