Rangers: Michael Stewart slams club’s leadership amid podcast controversy

Rangers: Michael Stewart slams club’s leadership amid podcast controversy -Rangers News

Scottish football pundit Michael Stewart has slammed Glasgow Rangers over their lack of leadership as the Heart and Heart podcast affair rumbles on.

The Lowdown: Media crisis

Earlier this year, the Gers made the controversial decision to start charging media outlets up to £25,000 to receive full access to the club (The Daily Mail), while also making the Heart and Hand podcast an official media partner.

How well do you remember these Rangers signings? First up, where did the Ibrox outfit sign Michael Mols from?

However, recent sectarian and discriminatory tweets from the podcast’s contributors were publicised (via The Daily Record), which has unsurprisingly led to plenty of criticism of those responsible.

The Latest: Stewart hits out

Stewart has been a vocal critic of the Gers in the past, and he made his feelings known in this situation as well. Taking to Twitter, he said:

“Leadership demands the ability to make tough decisions and unfortunately it’s clear that @RangersFC lack any real leaders to deal with the problems they have.”

The Verdict: Disaster

Rangers’ media policy has backfired here in spectacular fashion. Clearly, there was a breakdown in the relationship between the media and the club, and the 55-time Scottish champions had somewhat of a right to be frustrated – for example, they have been forced to demand changes to articles in the past. However, such a radical move was never going to be smooth.

Do you agree with Stewart?

Yes

Yes

No

No

To allow any outlet to become an official media partner without doing a background check is negligent at best and downright stupid at worst. They must now move as quickly as possible to right this wrong, otherwise Stewart may just have a point.

In other news, this Rangers man has been urged to leave Ibrox.
