We’re not going to forensically examine Rangers’ excellent letter to the government – you’re all smart enough to be able to read for yourselves, and that covers that side.
But we have to absolutely applaud the way Douglas Park, our outstanding chairman, has written such a gently but firmly delivered rebuke to the disgraceful comments made by Deputy First Minister John Swinney which sought to squarely blame Rangers for the celebrations from our fans.
In short, the former SNP leader committed a shocking blame game on Rangers, despite the club having been the only one to try to stop what was inevitably going to happen, and halt it once it had begun as well.
And the club’s letter to the various ‘leaders’ involved, addressed to Nicola Sturgeon herself, was absolutely bang on the money.
Which means we doubt she’ll even read it.
Her second in command, who has been dealing with the daily briefings more recently due to her ‘court case’ involving her predecessor, was astonishingly out of line with his assertions, and the club’s response was to carry out a quiet but dignified riposte.
It left nothing out, and left nothing unanswered. And crucially, it was done in the Rangers way, of firmly but fairly setting out the truth and defending the club’s good name.
We’ve been completely slandered here by the government for no good reason.
Thankfully Douglas Park won’t stand for it.
