Douglas Park has issued a scathing attack on the First Minister and her Deputy over the weekend activities at Ibrox and law-breaking by his manager and a number of employees.

After finally realising the scale of the mayhem visited on Glasgow City Centre on Sunday night the FM changed from the initial joyful tone of a sporting celebration in her first Sunday afternoon Tweet.

Faced with the anger of constituents bombarding their MSP’s about the flagrant breaches of the law the Scottish Government decided that they had to change direction and investigate what had happened over the weekend.

At Ibrox the entire club embraced the law-breaking fans with just a token reference for them to stay safe (not stay at home) while they claim that tannoy announcements were made to observe social distancing.

All of those messages were wiped out by the sight of Steven Gerrard hanging out the dressing room window to take the acclaim of law-breakers. Earlier he had car shared to get a video of his triumphant arrival at Ibrox as Police Scotland struggled to hold fans back from mobbing his car.

Picking up on an extract from the letter The Sun reports:

I must reiterate my concern and displeasure at the claims of the deputy first minister that there is a lack of leadership at Rangers Football club.

I think this is particularly disingenuous given the fact we have outlined the timeline above and more importantly the fact you have failed as a constituency MSP to engage with us directly on this matter.

That to me is a lack of leadership and a dereliction of duty. I trust that both you, the deputy first minister and the Justice minister will clarify remarks in light of the facts now presented to you.

The confidential three-page letter was leaked to the usual compliant news outlets shortly before the First Minister spoke in Holyrood at 2.30pm today.

Park also wanted Memorial Benches removed from George Square to facilitate an illegal social gathering during a global pandemic!
