Gerry McCulloch has thrown his thoughts into the debate sparked by Steve Clarke at his post match media conference at Ibrox.
All of a sudden a spotlight fell on Scotland’s shame as a native explained to a UK wide audience a very Scottish issue that is more than intolerance.
The Kilmarnock boss had plenty of issues that he could have highlighted from the 90 minutes on the pitch but decided to venture into an area that makes many people uncomfortable.
I went to a catholic school (same one as Steve Clarke, actually). We were taught tolerance and acceptance. Easy target to blame the education system. It’s about human decency.

By graphically spelling out the nature of the chants at Ibrox the news agenda was changed.
From London BBC and Sky News showed an interest, TalkSport decided to dig a little deeper, the SFA were even forced into commenting although it was typically bland and non committal inline with their approach over generations.
On Friday morning Clarke held a joint media conference with Kris Boyd from Rugby Park, after a couple of days of talking and media outrage the cynical await any sign of real action while expecting the usual attitudes and standards to quickly resume.
