Many Glasgow Rangers fans are far from happy with a tweet from the club in the aftermath of the Glen Kamara racism row.
On Thursday, as the Gers were knocked out of the Europa League after losing 2-0 to Slavia Prague, the Finland international claimed to have been racially abused by Ondrej Kudela. This has led to Slavia releasing a statement defending their player (slavia.cz), while Rangers have also made it clear that they will be standing by their man and have offered him their full support (rangers.co.uk).
On Saturday, a number of teams shared messages backing Kamara, and the Gers decided to retweet plenty of them. They even shared a photo from their Glasgow rivals of Scott Brown holding up a Show Racism the Red Card sign, and added the hashtag #OldFirmUnited.
There has been plenty of discussion about the use of the Old Firm phrase, with Celtic saying they are not a part of it while Rangers wear it with a badge of honour (Glasgow Times). In this case, however, many supporters were upset that the club decided to use Kamara’s situation to have a dig at their rivals.

“Delete this before anymore people see it.”
“Delete, the # at the end is a snide dig that seriously wasn’t needed during something like this.”
“So many better copy choices could’ve been man than this. Delete this.”
“no no I’m sorry but no”
“No references specifically to Glen, an old stock picture with Brown smiling at what? And a dig at our club thrown in, This wasn’t support at all, Others yeah I get it but this no.”
“Well said Rangers but that hashtag is just petty”
