Nicola Sturgeon has called out the Ibrox apologists who have tried to compare the George Square riots with the visit of Scotland fans to Wembley.

With Glasgow in Tier 3 with public gatherings banned 15,000 Ibrox fans brought carnage to the centre of Glasgow with substantial damage inflicted on a statue of Queen Victoria in George Square.

Despite massive coverage on Social Media Police Scotland have been slow to track down and charge those involved, giving the impression that everyone would be happy to ignore and move on.

Following the usual comments about the violence and damage from the First Minister and Humza Yousaaf highlighted the anti-Catholic motivations among the Covidiots.

Ibrox apologists were quick to compare the scenes involving Scotland fans in London with the incidents around George Square but an important difference was highlighted today.

The Sun reports the First Minister saying:

Much of the criticism of course was at Rangers after those events due to the damage and some of the anti-Catholic abuse that was being hurled around that as well. I think it’s important that we don’t forget that aspect of that.

No action has been taken by any football authority over the multiple breaches of protocols involving Ibrox players and supporters.
