Glasgow Rangers: Fans demand club to take action over targeting of ‘Gers players

Glasgow Rangers: Fans demand club to take action over targeting of ‘Gers players - Rangers News

Many Glasgow Rangers fans feel that the club need to be more vocal in speaking out against the treatment of their players following some recent contentious incidents.

On Monday, an image emerged via @Time3Rag on Twitter which shows a Hibernian player clipping Ryan Kent on the back of the ankle in Sunday’s 2-2 draw between the sides at Easter Road.

In the same match, Ianis Hagi was elbowed by Paul Hanlon, while Alfredo Morelos was unceremoniously taken out by Ryan Porteous. Although Don Robertson booked both Hibs players, Steven Gerrard felt that stronger action should have been taken.

In the previous week’s win over Dundee United, Liam Smith went in knee-high on Brandon Barker but referee Kevin Clancy failed to show a red card, much to the disgust of many ‘Gers fans.

Do Rangers need to be more proactive in speaking out in defence of their players and management?

Yes

Yes

No

No

While the officials in question have naturally come under fire from some supporters, many of the Ibrox faithful are also unhappy with what they feel is a lack of action from the club in openly condemning the treatment of their players.

Some cited a comparison with Glasgow rivals Celtic, who issued a statement demanding a public explanation from referee John Beaton over decisions he made in their 1-0 defeat at Ibrox in December 2018 (as per BBC).

Check out some of the reaction from ‘Gers fans below:
