Some Glasgow Rangers fans are livid with club’s update on the potential of certain supporter health and safety requirements needed to visit matches at Ibrox this season.
The start to the new campaign has been a relatively good one for the Gers, having won five of their first seven Premiership matches (Rangers). Despite being on the losing side once, they are six points ahead of Celtic in the table (BBC), having already beaten their fierce rivals 1-0 this term.
After not being able to attend stadiums last term, fans have been able to see matches live at the grounds since the start of the season. However, from October 1st it seems, vaccine passports will be needed for those wanting to attend events of more than 10,000 people (via The Daily Record) – and this has not gone down well with the Gers supporters.
The club has confirmed they have received an update from the Scottish government, and the fans will receive further guidance on the exact regulations in due course.
Do you agree with vaccine passports?
The news was shared on Twitter, and it attracted plenty of attention from the supporters. They took to the social media platform to share their thoughts.
Let’s see what the fans had to say about the update below
“The family stand will be half empty on Sunday unless kids are exempt – which in doing so would make the whole exercise even more pointless”
“What joke hitting families where it hurts they’ll be needed to get to work shortly”
“This is very discriminatory. For a virus with a give or take 96% survival rate . With a jab that is still experimental.”
“I’ve got my vaccine passport but they shouldn’t be need ….. it’s a disgrace that someone who doesn’t believe in the vaccines should be punished by not getting to see there team play .”
“Guidance?? Stand up for your fans and refuse this tyranny! This is absolute nonsense.”
“Scrap them. Pure bribery and discriminating to people who don’t want to be part of an experiment.”
In other news, Rangers fans have been reacting to this tweet.
