Police Scotland are again counting the cost of another day of violence and disorder involving Ibrox fans. 

Twice in 2021, while the city was in lockdown, thousands of fans descended on George Square, bringing the city to a standstill with a number of police officers injured and damage caused to street furniture including a statue of Queen Victoria. 

Nicola Sturgeon and Humza Yousaf led the condemnation, other politicians tut-tutted but after less than 100 arrests despite extensive CCTV footage the issue was quietly set aside.  

On Wednesday, in the City Chambers overlooking George Square, Glasgow City Council will honour the club with handshakes all round while a police officer recovers from injuries picked up on a summer afternoon. 

No statement has been issued from Ibrox despite shocking scenes across social media, just like the 2021 incidents BBC Scotland provided no coverage of the carnage.

    I see there is not a mention of this on the BBC website. When it cones to Sevco ” Hear No Evil See No Evil Speak No Evil ” is the mantra. Defund the BBC now.

    Scum being scum in a country with institutions and media run by scum. Nothing will ever change as long as that klub exists.

  • Bob (original) says:

    Was the police officer on duty, or running with the mob?

    All this nonsense could have been permanently removed from Glasgow back in 2012… 🙁

    BBC Journalists and Staff taking salaries under false-pretences, if they are not willing to report matters of genuine public interest without favour!
