It seems like the Scottish Government have finally woken up to the fact that they have a rival administration in operation from Glasgow.

As the events of the weekend again demonstrated the club from Ibrox operate to a different Set of Laws to the rest of the country.

In June when football was given a set of strict protocols to resume training Steven Gerrard showed his disregard by giving Michael Beale a lift to training.

The following month eight players that hadn’t returned negative test results played in a closed door match against Dundee United who weren’t aware of the breach. Two assistant referees without current test results were turned away from Murray Park.

In February five players were given Fixed Penalties for attending a house party. In contrast to August when Celtic had two matches postponed for Boli Bolingoli’s trip to Spain without self-isolating no action has been taken against Nathan Patterson and his four team-mates by the SFA, no matches have been postponed.

So far it seems that the Scottish Government have been content with the selective application of rules from the SFA.

Following the weekend events and the clear flaunting of Lockdown led by Steven Gerrard and the indifference or encouragement from the club it looks like the Scottish Government will be forced into direct action if thousands of Scots aren’t to come to the conclusion that there are two tiers of justice in place with one small group immune from the laws followed by the majority.

Shortly before John Swinney’s appearance at the FM Media Conference on Monday the Ibrox club stated:

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.

The images and videos clearly show Gerrard joining in and encouraging the law-breakers despite te comment on the club website.

The SFA and SPFL have yet to make any comment on the multiple breaches of protocol at Ibrox on Saturday. Sunday’s events around George Square are an issue for the Government and Police.
