Glasgow Rangers fans are loving comments from Steven Gerrard on the bans the SFA dished out to the five Gers players who broke health protocols.
Earlier this year, Calvin Bassey, Bongani Zungu, Nathan Patterson, Dapo Mebude and Brian Kinnear all broke coronavirus regulations to attend a house gathering. In the aftermath, they have since been banned for six games – although, following an appeal from the 55-time Scottish champions, the players will be able to play against Celtic in the Scottish Cup fourth round later this month (Sky Sports).
Rangers face Hibernian on Sunday, and Gerrard was speaking at his pre-match press conference. He was asked about the reason behind the appeal, and he revealed the Gers do not believe the punishment dished out was consistent with sanctions they have given in other cases – he also specifically cited Celtic’s trip to Dubai as an example.
Will Rangers win their appeal?
The comments were shared on Rangers’ official Twitter account, and the fans took to the social media platform to share their thoughts.
Let’s see what the fans had to say about the comments from Gerrard below
“Kennedy with the assist and Gerrard fires it into the top bin..”
“Great from the Gaffer”
“Outstanding, Gaffer. Simply outstanding.”
“Superb for Gerrard”
“Savage but well put.”
“Can’t be underestimated how much the manager has developed as a political operator in his time with the club. 3 years ago he’d have been sucked into providing a tabloid soundbite. Now he’s swatting these drafties away with a swift, concise and witty response. Delicious.”
In other news, Rangers fans are livid at this broadcaster’s comments.
