Female Dundonian claims Rangers fans caused ankle break

Look at the heading for the pitch invader story 'Bad Bhoy'. Could you imagine if that was a Rangers fan, 'Rangers thug' would be the headline.

She's an (apparent) Rangers fan who is claiming to have been "attacked" by Rangers fans while her own daughter supports Dundee and they were both in the Dundee end having gone on a Dundee supporters bus.

The headline is confusing as anything and the manner of telling the story isn't great either.

I wonder if there is a DSS angle saying she has had to move in with her former partner but is having to seep on the couch as she cant go up stairs, so why move in with him then.
That's before we get to understand that a Rangers fan didn't break her ankle, she fell over and did it.

It's of course not helped by, most likely, having been largely fabricated.

When you go to bed at night praise ye gods that whatever ever else happens in life you arent a journalist.

Imagine being in a job that prints and makes up utter bollocks like that.

No wonder they are all bitter and twisted.

Classic diversion tactics away from the moon howlers, puddle drinkers and pervs.

Somebody shouted out Boo and she fell over a kerb not looking where she was going, hold the front page.

"We went through on a supporters’ bus so while I went away to the hospital Paige travelled home with the other fans who we have got to know throughout the years."

Goes.to all the Gers.games on a Dundee supporters bus :rolleyes:

Clumsy scummy Dundee tink trying to add some credibility to her claim, before being told by Injury Lawyers 4 U that its her own fault she can't walk in a straight line and tripped

It was outside the stadium, she's tripped on the kerb onto the roadway, just opposite the TO, the place was awash with cops and stewards. She was treated very quickly by paramedics.

A quick search into the journalist, John Jeffay, reveals he was involved with a website called sellthatstory.com (now defunct) which specialised in promoting press releases to newspapers and other media outlets so that they would run with a story. It doesn't take a great leap to figure out something similar has happened here. It's a shame that she broke her ankle, likewise that her daughter found it distressing, but trying to profit from it by lying in the press is vulgar behaviour.

There were lots of Dundee fans walking amongst the Rangers support and nobody gave two fcuks. So why would this woman be singled out?

I smell shite?

That is unbelievabe. Probably because it isn't true.
No, a Rangers fan did not break your ankle. You broke your ankle yes but a Rangers fan didn't do it.

She's saying she is a Rangers fan!
So she broke her own ankle! (Play on words by reporter to make Rangers bad)
She's alleging that she was rushing to avoid abuse from Rangers fans when she tripped.
Lot of rubbish, she's came out into big crowds, not being used to it, picks up her daughter and trips on kerb. Simples.

Imagine that!

Then you let your wee girl go home with people you know from a supporters bus.

Fantastic parenting skills there.

Utter bollox from start to finish.

Ah the obligatory, "Celtic have had a bad night all round , quick make up some dirt on the huns and run it" story.

You could have set your watch by it after Tuesday's car crash

It probably did happen but not in the way the journo?? has printed it. We all know, to our detriment, the way a story is spun & in all likelihood there may have been a bit of banter between the fans, although that's the way i head when i leave the govan front & never heard or saw anything, and the IP wasn't looking & tripped over the kerb & fell.

I'd blame the reporter for the negative anti Rangers slant on this story.

This appears in the paper 5 days after the game but more importantly the day after a Celtic fan appears in court for invading the park and attacking a player..

I've been in the Aberdeen end at Ibrox and walked through our fans at the end of the game and nobody even looked near me.

File under pish me thinks.
