Just as it looked as though Scotland’s newest club were within touching distance of their first major trophy, that consistency they were looking for comes back to bite their bottoms.
It appears a couple of their players (at least ) broke covid protocol and attended a party that had to be broken up by the police. It’s not the first time, and pressure is mounting on Nicola Sturgeon to use it as a distraction from anything else that may be on her mind to put a stop to the nonsense that has been this seasons football.
After all, she did say she would….
Combined with the media outrage over the Celtic Dubai trip, which couldn;t really be penalised as both the SFA and the government told them to go, football and footballers are starting to show they really do live in a bubble, and that the plague really has got nothing to do with them.
Especially at Ibrox, where their unique physical make up seems to have provided them with natural immunity…
Whilst almost every other club in the land has at one time or another fielded a weakened side due to the presence of the Coronavirus, they have managed to avoid it, despite this second major breach of protocol.
This weekend, at their game with Kilmarnock, the staff disregarded social distancing rules in the ground…
and on a serious note, people that are already fed up with lockdowns, restricted visits to relatives and the prospect that it might never end, one has to wonder why the Ibrox club aren’t leading from the front.
Then again, we’ve seen that normal business and employment rules don’t apply over there, and it looks as though they’ve decided to put health and safety on the same plane as fiscal responsibility.
Maybe now the media will do their job. Maybe they will demand that those at Ibrox do theirs…or those at Holyrood….
Then again, that’s unlikely.
“rangers ” have said they will hold an internal investigation, and won’t comment any further, which shows that they are upholding one level of consistency, they didn’t speak on the SFA child abuse report either, probably because they want to go down the different club line which would sort of upset those who don;t want to believe that myth.
Speaking of consistency, which their manager Steven Gerrard was harping on about when he attempted to deflect attention from his players , who have been a-hoofin and a-stomping their way through games without punishment….
The breach, or at least one of them, has been picked up online…..
For the Athletic to report on it, there must be plenty of evidence to back up the story, evidence that will probably appear in the mainstream.
The Ibrox support are starting to worry it may affect the outcome of potentially the most successful season in their short history…
I’m off to Ikea to look for some reaper cushions, and I hope I have more joy than my last visit. I went to get some kitchen units, but after I’d put them together, they wouldn’t fit in the car.
I even went to the clearly signposted, designated spot to do it.
