Rangers fans are ready to risk a UEFA fine by banning Sparta Prague supporters from Ibrox for the ‘return leg’ after the continued war of words between Rangers and Prague-based clubs over Glen Kamara.
Rangers supporters and Steven Gerrard spoke out after the match about the treatment the Finnish international was perceived to have received from the 10,000-strong crowd of local schoolkids, and the manager has confirmed the club will be writing to UEFA on the matter itself.
But fans want to go further, and are eager for the club to block Czech supporters from Ibrox and potentially risk a fine from Europe’s governing body, in order to express protest against the crowd’s treatment of both Kamara and the team in general.
Is it worth it? Rangers are not rich right now, and Stevie G has admitted the club lacked funds to invest in any players, and with the Hungarian FA recently being fined £150,000 for racism, it is feasible a similar penalty of 6 figures would hurt our bank considerably more than the positive impact of barring Czech fans would give.
But it would be a decision for the club at the end of the day, and we wait in curiosity over how this one develops.
