Yesterday’s stunning revelation that Rangers sought to protect Glasgow and our fans by having the title celebrations inside Ibrox to the number of 10,000 spectators further amplifies the hypocrisy, tension and media nonsense surrounding the post-55 celebrations.
As we know some fans did disgrace the club and get no backing from this site or the club, but in general, a great deal of the media piffle is artificial and contrived.
And that the Scottish government appear to have deliberately rejected Rangers’ application for 10,000 fans to be allowed in Ibrox for the trophy presentation seems to be a systematic attempt to provoke any kind of disorder among ‘rampant’ fans and feed it to the press for examination, not to mention the police.
With Dornan and Yousaf’s reactions telling their own stories, there is clearly an anti-Rangers agenda in this government – and we have to say even our SNP-voting readers, whose views we respect like any of our audience, have been very quiet lately with their defence of the government’s conduct with regards our club.
It’s not good enough, it’s systemic, and it’s as bigoted against Rangers as any real sectarianism is.
They literally rejected our fans being in the ground, social distanced, despite a few days later 10,000 fans returning to English grounds, perfectly safely.
This was a way for Rangers fans to enjoy 55 safely, but the government said no.
So, whose fault is all of this really?
