Graham Spiers has now been hailing the behaviour of Glasgow Rangers supporters in Seville as news emerged from Police in the city.
The Lowdown: Police pleased
As per Sky Sports journalist Keith Downie, Police in Seville have said that they were ‘pleased’ with the behaviour of supporters from both clubs during the UEFA Europa League final on Wednesday night.
Only one arrest was made involving a Frankfurt fan, and no Teddy Bears supporters were arrested, despite some ‘minor scuffles’ shown on social media.
The Latest: Spiers reacts
Taking to Twitter, Scottish football journalist Spiers was left hailing the ‘terrific’ support of the Light Blues fans, after previous concerns expressed about their potential behaviour:
“There was a concern – not least from Rangers FC itself – about fan behaviour in Seville, but I have to say the Rangers fans in Spain came over as fun and warm and colourful. Very appealing: families, kids, lots of females among the fan-base. It looked terrific. Needs to be said.”
Should Rangers sign Ramsey permanently?
The Verdict: Good to hear
It is certainly good to hear that the Gers faithful seemed to be on their best behaviour in Seville, despite losing the final on penalties in what was truly heart-breaking for the club.
After reports of a Nottingham Forest fan being jailed for head-butting Sheffield United striker Billy Sharp after their Championship play-off semi-final win, fan behaviour at grounds has certainly come under scrutiny in recent days, and so it is nice to see RFC supporters show their class when representing their own club in Seville.
Nonetheless, they can still end the season on a high note, if they beat Hearts in the Scottish Cup final over the weekend, when the club will be hoping for more of the same from their supporters.
