Many Glasgow Rangers fans are livid over an article from newspaper columnist Helen Martin following the celebrations which took place at George Square at the weekend.
The last few days have been special for the Ibrox club. For the first time in 10 years, they lifted the Premiership title on Saturday after beating Aberdeen 4-0 at home – that also meant they went the entire league campaign unbeaten (BBC). As such, thousands of Rangers supporters took to the streets to celebrate. While there was some trouble – 20 fans were arrested (firstpost.com) – the scenes were generally peaceful and well-natured.
However, Martin clearly had another agenda on her mind. She concentrated solely on the few supporters who caused trouble and suggested that there is a widespread sectarian issue amongst the club’s fanbase – she even floated the idea of Rangers being put out of business (The Edinburgh News).
Should Rangers make a legal complaint?
She shared the article on her Twitter page, and it attracted outrage from many Gers supporters. These fans took to the social media platform to share their thoughts on her “disturbing” remarks.
Let’s see what the fans had to say about Martin below
“Utterly disgusting and truly offensive article.”
“See you in court”
“Vile beyond belief”
“Downright disturbing take.”
“This is a staggeringly appalling article, it’s not just the content itself it’s all terribly written”
“That is vile and dangerous. Very very dangerous Helen Martin.”
In other news, Rangers fans love this Burj Khalifa tribute.
