In the month that Walter Smith died a significant number of Ibrox fans were celebrating the death of Tommy Burns in song at Livingston today.
Numerous videos can be found across Twitter tonight with the ‘banter’ coming from the same area of the ground that pelted snowballs at the Livingston goalkeeper to delay the start of the second half by eight minutes.
It seems that since the softly softly approach taken by the authorities to the numerous public order incidents in George Square in March and May a sense of immunity has developed.
Back in August hundreds marched through the centre of Glasgow singing for third and fourth generation Irish immigrants to be returned, despite extensive CCVT coverage only nine people have been arrested and charged.
Whenever these type of incidents become too public the usual reaction is to blame it on a tiny minority of supporters. There was a large number, still a minority, involved today with no-one in the stadium showing any concern.
With no condemnation from the club those involved will take it as silent approval as the video clips are shared and enjoyed by Ibrox Season Ticket holders.
Singing about Tommy Burns is the lowest common degradation the huns can sink to, not surprised to see the numbers which strive for such a badge of dishonour. The poppy press gangers and minute silence monitors with short memories.

Tommy Burns was a close personal friend of Walter Smith, and most importantly, a human being. Our thoughts go out to his family, especially if they saw this. (1/2)

Aye mate that’ll be the talk in the papers tomorrow instead of our result, the snowballs was a laugh and people taking that over the top but the Tommy burns chanting was poor taste
