Ibrox Noise was fascinated by the current Rangers rumours around Norwich’s Kenny McLean, in the sense that not the rumour itself but some comments surrounding it stood out like a sore thumb.

As some Rangers fans will be aware, the vibe among our support is pretty toxic right now, and many fans accuse so many of abusing players, or being unsupportive, and generally hurling all sorts at the squad.

Well, it turns out Rangers fans are not alone in this, and here’s some comments Canaries’ fans made about their midfielder:

“If he does go you can’t blame him after the abuse towards him was increased last season.”

“He won fans player of the year. Abuse towards Kenny has decreased massively in the last few years.”

“He once said it’s his dream to play for Rangers and he’s running out of time. Be nice for him to go out on a high after a decent season by his standards. Still baffled at his POTS but it’s not the stupidest referendum result we’ve seen.”

In simple terms, our negativity about some (almost all) players is by no means unique – Norwich of course compete in the Championship, and failed again to secure promotion last season.

Meaning their fans, like ours, are hardly thrilled with life right now.

End result? Abuse. Criticism. Negativity.

It is part and parcel of football these days, even if the negativity around our club seemed to increase in the last 4 months.

That’s unfortunately the result of failing, of not managing to achieve your goals – especially when you let those achievements slip through your fingers thanks to stumbling at all levels of the club.

So fans these days aren’t exactly thrilled with the club, but then neither are Norwich’s and we imagine countless others’ fans who fell short of their season objectives.

When this happens, fans go into angry emotional mode, criticising everything they can, because they just want to win, they want the best for their club, and praising things when they go wrong probably isn’t viewed as especially productive.

Whether we sign McLean or not, we’re not the only support that currently feels aggrieved with life and extremely frustrated.

And Cyriel Dessers isn’t the only footballer getting a really raw deal from his fanbase.
