Nicola Sturgeon has officially blamed Rangers and our fans for the spike in Covid 19 cases over the past 10 days as seen in Glasgow City.
Following the gathering of thousands of our fans at Ibrox and then George Square, there was a rise of cases in the country’s biggest city, and despite claims from supporters that 10 days isn’t enough time to see a rise, the First Minister argues otherwise and has firmly put the increase from 0.8% in Glasgow to 5.3% infection rate at the door of that gathering.
Whatever side you take, the club is most definitely telling fans to stay well away from Parkhead this Sunday, and we imagine that’s advice that some fans may not heed.
But Sturgeon’s quotes are very explicit:
According to the medical boss, the gathering was a cause. Now, you might not agree, or believe that, and you might be slaughtering this site and telling us we’re not epidemiologists, as some of you have done before, but common sense does tell us this virus spreads through close proximity of crowds.
And the club backs that up, otherwise Tavernier wouldn’t be telling us to stay home.
Whether the numbers were indeed a result of that gathering or not, the reported science and government say yes.
In fairness, the SNP would stick the boot into Rangers no matter what – so don’t give them an excuse.
