Chris Sutton was swamped with support as he returned to Twitter after news of his Ibrox ban was announced.
The former Celtic striker has a sharp sense of occasion, specialising in making a comment without a direct reference to the subject everyone is looking for a reaction on.
All that he needed to type last night was ‘everyone, anyone’ and the issue was known.
In-between two partial UEFA stadium closures the Ibrox club launched a so-called inclusivity programme titled Everyone, Anyone. It was a classic media and PR box ticking operation, being seen to be doing something rather than getting hands on and tackling an issue.
Alongside that excuse of a campaign fans chant ‘No-one likes us, we don’t care’ while constantly highlighting the slightest slight from Sutton, Michael Stewart or anyone else included in the lengthy ‘Haters of Rangers’ list. Included on that classic is a Glasgow café that served ice-cream and jelly out of season in February 2012.
Tonight the issue gets serious when BT Sport cover a Europa League tie at Ibrox from an empty stadium three miles across the city.
So far BT Sport have been making a joke and giggle over the issue with Ally McCoist, fans will be watching closely tonight to see if they take the banning of a pundit seriously.

The man in poster – Richard MacDonald – was forced to issue a statement apologising for criticising them during a #BLM rally. He called for Rangers to change, but later retracted & said it was down to “society as a whole” #EveryoneAnyone is tokenism of the worst possible kind!

BT sport must protect their employees. They should withhold TV revenues. Entitlement FC need pulled down several pegs.
