SFA Chief Ian Maxwell has brought a voice of reason to the ‘aftermath’ of Rangers’ title win and fan chaos by stating clubs cannot be held responsible for their supporters’ actions and the supporters themselves had to be accountable.
Following the disgraceful and borderline criminal demands of ex-Justice Secretary Humza Jousaf (quickly removed from office by his boss to avoid any more PR disasters) that Rangers (let’s face it, it was Rangers he was getting at) be held 100% accountable with a ‘strict liability’ for fan behaviour, the SFA’s big chief slammed that notion and agreed with all sensible onlookers that it’s the supporters themselves who need to behave.
In other words, Yousaf’s diabolical abuse of power is being quietly called out, by a CE who has generally always been fair towards all Scottish clubs, including Rangers.
And he’s right – it’s fans responsible, not the clubs, and Rangers more than most are doing what they can to educate and inform, as Maxwell rightly says.
End of the day, individuals are accountable, and it’s time the media quits hounding the club and finding muck to rake over this.
Rangers couldn’t have done more, frankly.
