The day after watching a booze bus rammed with players leaving Murray Park Steven Gerrard told STV that ‘I can say from the bottom of my heart we did everything we could to calm that situation down’.
On Saturday at Ibrox the Liverpool legend was seen hanging out a dressing room window screaming his encouragement for law-breakers to ignore Social Distancing.
So far the SFA and SPFL haven’t commented on the multiple breaches of protocol at Saturday’s match but having waited 23 days before deciding to charge Nathan Patterson and his Covidiots pals it is clear that the authorities tread very slowly with incidents around Ibrox.
At Murray Park on Sunday players amused the crowds gathered outside by dancing around boozing after apparently undergoing a training session.
Celtic, St Mirren and Kilmarnock have all fallen foul of the SFA for their travel arrangements this season but it is unlikely any of them were involved in anything like the transport chosen by Conor Goldson, James Tavernier and others on Sunday afternoon.

Picking up on his interview with STV, the Daily Record reports Gerrard saying:
It’s clear we were in constant chats with police to do all we could to make it as safe as possible but when you’re in that moment and you’ve been through that as fans and players, the work we’ve put in, I hope there is some understanding.
I can understand the reaction, we are going through a pandemic. I can say from the bottom of my heart we did everything we could to calm that situation down.
