Rangers’ ‘Media Guy’ Andrew Dickson implores fans to stop sectarian chanting

 

Rangers’ 3-1 victory away at Berwick was marred by sectarian chanting from the travelling Old Firm support.

The chanting was so audible and deplorable that Rangers’ ‘media guy’ Andrew Dickon felt compelled to make an implicit plea via Twitter for the bigotry to stop.

Without going so far as explicitly referring to the content of the hatred, he circumnavigated this cleverly by tweeting: ‘A second half request: could the lads in the enclosure across from the main stand sing songs about Rangers please?’

In addition to this request, ESPN’s Ray Stubbs made the rather surprising, if not unwelcome, statement, that the channel would be contacting the police and authorities over the sectarian chanting, as can be heard on the clip below.

Of course, what make this all the more unfathomable is that Rangers are now in the fourth tier of Scottish football, and realistically won’t even play Celtic in league football for at least another three years.

Rangers’ official Twitter feed released a brief and somewhat light statement, tweeting ‘The club is disappointed by certain outbursts of inappropriate singing by a section of the support at Berwick.’
