The UK government have tonight launched a probe into the diabolical scenes at the Stade de Paris last night in which tear gas and pepper spray marred the start of the UCL final, with UEFA promising an urgent investigation.
Which only begs the question why no one in the UK governments, either north or south of the border, saw fit to launch the same probe into the horror scenes which befell Rangers fans in Sevilla, and why UEFA just wetly apologised for the ‘inconvenience’ and moved on with their lives.
What happened in Paris was shocking, and questions must be answered – responsibility must be accountable and punishment meted.
Just like it should have been in Sevilla but which has largely been ignored by both the UK and Scottish governments, and by UEFA.
Despite the damning evidence against Sevilla and UEFA, and the local police, it has been generally forgotten, including a rather limp demand by Rangers that the scenes by investigated.
But at the UCL final, we’ve got governments involved, we’ve got UEFA trying to sort it out, and a general outcry, rightly, of condemnation.
But not really for us.
No one seems to give a hoot about Rangers fans, and the nightmares they went through, and as things stand, that includes our own board.
Can’t help wondering why all these bodies are keen to fall all over themselves fixing this for Liverpool, but not so much for Rangers…
