Glasgow Rangers: Fans voice their disagreement with Ewan Murray tweet

Glasgow Rangers: Fans voice their disagreement with Ewan Murray tweet - Rangers News

A number of Glasgow Rangers fans have hit out at journalist Ewan Murray over a question he posed on social media.

He took to Twitter (via @mrewanmurray) to suggest that the ‘Gers, along with Old Firm rivals Celtic, should consider helping cash-stricken clubs in Scottish football given their superior resources.

The severe woes facing numerous clubs in the lower divisions of the SPFL were laid bare in an article in the Daily Record, with many teams fearing a ‘catastrophic’ collapse amid the UK government’s impending restrictions, which will likely defer any possibility of fans returning to games for at least six months, having already been inactive since early March due to the outbreak of the global pandemic.

In turn, many clubs are fearful of going bust unless the Scottish government provides an emergency funding package to keep them afloat.

Should Rangers provide financial support to struggling SPFL clubs?

Yes

Yes

No

No

The ‘Gers have spent £10.35m on new signings this summer (as per TransferMarkt) and bankrolled several million pounds from their run to the Europa League round of 16 last season.

However, many of the Ibrox faithful have not forgotten how a majority of Premiership chairmen voted them out of the top flight following their liquidation in 2012. The ‘Gers also saw their calls for an independent inquiry into the SPFL rejected by a majority of clubs after they accused the governing body of corruption over their handling of the league resolution proposal this year.

Consequently, these ‘Gers fans gave short shrift to Murray’s suggestion:
