Completely off-topic but Ibrox Noise is just catching up with the ridiculous story summing up the Scottish press in a nutshell after learning of highly-respected female journalists, particularly Sky Sports Eilidh Barbour, walking out in protest after the Writers’ Association gala dinner was filled with sexist and racist remarks as part of the ‘entertainment’.
We are not left wing, we are not hipsters, and we are FAR from politically correct on Ibrox Noise, allowing a pretty good freedom of speech for the majority who can conduct themselves well.
But we draw the line at this, and anything that’s enough to make the organisation apologise for the content clearly has no space in football.
Us Rangers fans have long-complained about the content of our press, whether it’s against us or not – and here is living proof that content initially endorsed by the Writers’ Association flourishes in the media and in the press, whether it’s anti-Rangers, racist, or anti-women.
This was enough to see walkouts.
Clearly Scottish football continues to live in the stone age – we see this time and time again, and now we’re seeing it pretty much reported.
Will our game ever grow up into the 21st century?
We’re really not sure.
