The club from Ibrox have issued a statement washing their hands of the mayhem across Glasgow city centre on Sunday night.

On Saturday Steven Gerrard shared a video of his arrival at Ibrox after inviting a passenger into his car.

After the final whistle players ran to a gate to interact with fans who had made a non-essential journey to the stadium.

From the dressing room windows were opened to share and encourage the law breaking of supporters on the street.

Ibrox was again a focal point for a gathering on Sunday afternoon before thousands marched to George Square, accompanied by Police Officers.

At lunchtime today the club stated:

DURING the last number of weeks, Rangers can confirm that we initiated open dialogue with key stakeholders in relation to the possibility of us achieving a historic 55th league title.

We have proactively engaged with our local MP, the Justice Minister, the Scottish Government, Police Scotland and the SPFL in relation to maintaining a cohesive message regarding public safety during the pandemic. We understand the jubilance of our support across the world who recognise this has been a historic year for the club.

Nevertheless, it has been of great frustration for all football fans across the world that they have not been able to watch their team within stadiums, especially for the loyal Rangers season-ticket holders who have stood by this football club through thick and thin in the last decade.

We reiterate the message from our manager, Steven Gerrard, who highlighted that fans should adhere to government guidelines – stay safe, socially distance and look after each other in this difficult time.

We are aware there is the possibility of more, significant milestones within this season, and we will continue to proactively engage with key stakeholders to maintain a cohesive message in relation to government guidance at this present time. We look forward to further open dialogue with the government, police, SPFL and other key stakeholders.

There has been no comment from the SFA or SPFL on the multiple breaches of protocol on Saturday. Twenty-three days ago five Ibrox players were given Fixed Penalties with no charges raised by the SFA.
