Michael Stewart has called on the club from Ibrox to condemn those involved in yesterday’s anti-Irish march through the centre of Glasgow.
Some publications have laughingly been referring to ‘alleged Rangers fans’ who just happened to decide to march through the city centre towards Ibrox a few hours before a match against Celtic.
Stewart is virtually alone among football pundits prepared to discuss the issue with BBC Scotland refusing to cover it until a bland statement from Police Scotland mentioned looking into an incident where Police Officers were present.
Another tweet from last week. Which is equally relevant this week but unfortunately feels like it simply isn’t happening. There’s no silver bullet to resolve these problems but ignoring it will never work. https://t.co/E4hXvT3dfD

Last week media outlets were falling over themselves to praise the Ibrox club over a 57 word statement after abuse of Kyogo Furuhashi was circulated across social media.
No apology was offered to the Celtic striker while no names were given for the fans banned from Ibrox with the statement also stopping short of identifying The Westwood Rangers Supporters Club as the bus involved and having future tickets withdrawn.
