Michael Stewart has called out Sevco over their endorsement of The Famine Song.
Trying to claim that a nine-year-old club is approaching its 150th anniversary is up to themselves but including the Sloop John B (I wanna go home) by The Beach Boys is a different matter entirely.
As the PR team inside Ibrox know fine well that tune has been adapted to The Famine Song- a celebration of over one million deaths while demanding that people of Irish descent leave Scotland.
Why this tune? This is supposedly a celebration, so why use a tune so offensive to many, a tune connected to a song that some Rangers fans were charged for singing only last month. Why would you do this? https://t.co/iHsyHqAtmw

At the end of August a large group of fans took to the streets of Glasgow singing The Famine Song, they were given a police escort along Argyle Street with the last report being that nine arrests were made.
The video was released yesterday with retail partners Castore Sport, overnight there was no reporting of the decision from any mainstream broadcasters or publishers.
