Taking to Twitter, BBC Scotland reporter Tom English has relayed some ‘extraordinary’ news out of Ibrox as Rangers CEO Stewart Robertson makes a controversial call.
The Lowdown: Rangers make controversial call…
Amid both Rangers and their Glasgow rivals’ opening Europa League group games on Thursday evening, something of a controversial incident emerged as Robertson made a contentious decision.
Who should Rangers sign in January?
Indeed, the Gers chief opted to turn away both former Celtic manager Neil Lennon and BT Sport pundit Chris Sutton (a former Hoops player) from working at an Ibrox studio due to their presence apparently posing a ‘security risk‘.
Relaying the news on social media, English has dropped his take on the unique debacle.
The Latest: Tom English relays Rangers news and drops claim…
The BBC Scotland journalist has branded this development as ‘extraordinary’ whilst also pointing out Rangers’ strange belief that pundits, of all people, are a risk to security at Ibrox.
Relaying Sutton’s message on Twitter speaking out over the issue, English gave this commentary: “Rangers saying that pundits are a security risk. Pundits! This is extraordinary.”
The Verdict: Robertson has the right…
Opting to turn away both Lennon and Sutton comes as a controversial and unexpected call, but if the Gers CEO believes it is in the best interests of safety at Ibrox, he has every right to do so.
The debate will probably continue over this next week but Robertson’s decision to exclude both pundits arguably shouldn’t be blown out of proportion on this big of a scale.
