Glasgow Rangers and the press have not had the best of relationships in recent weeks and months.
Keith Jackson and the Daily Record has been on the end of the fans’ wrath following a number of articles that appeared to attack the Gers, whilst Graham Spiers has also come under fire from supporters for his own views previously as well.
The Gers have not always only taken offence to comments on their own club, either – the coverage of the big stories in Scottish football involving other sides have also piqued their interest. That can be seen following the news that Dundee United are interested in taking Malky Mackay on as manager. The Scot is a more-than controversial figure, having previously admitted to sending homophobic and racist texts, but Spiers appears to believe that he would be a good appointment as he is a “decent, likeable guy“.
Can you see Dundee United hiring Malky Mackay?
Similar to plenty of fans of other clubs, the Gers supporters are far from happy with the comments, and they have taken to Twitter to share their thoughts. You can see some of the best comments from the social media platform below.

It’s embarrassing enough that he got a job in Scottish football after sending sexist, racist and homophobic messages but now he’s getting promoted for another role! https://t.co/tSrtpSeLBP

Graham Spiers has no backbone. https://t.co/lvidgt9PQ7

This guy once defended a sex offender player, now add a racist to his list of good guys. You’ve lost it Graham. https://t.co/roYwlEMq2T

Bizarre given you judged Stendel because of the way he looked. 🙃🙃🙃

Guys. Stop engaging with him. In Spiers’s mind racism and paedophilia can be forgiven, tax avoidance can’t.
He’s a diseased individual trying desperately to remain relevant
