One possible solution to highlighting the bias against us.

Just a suggestion...what if the club were to employ someone to trawl through videos of all the spfl matches every week, and highlight dubious incidents in which no action was taken by refs (especially against us).

They could then be filed under relevant names, such as "high footed tackle by attacker on defender".

They could then be posted on the Rangers website, with comparisons to incidents that we are punished for.

An example, Alfie's first yellow today was what you might call a 'high footed tackle on a defender'. We then post on the website a clip of Alfie's tackle with the caption "Morelos booked" on screen, followed by a similar 'high footed tackle on a defender' by another team, with the caption "No action taken by referee".

This would be a subtle way of highlighting the double standards to which we are refereed without anyone calling referees cheats or ranting in the media (who we all know would take the ref or opposition's side anyway).

The clips would soon start to accumulate, given that it happens pretty much every game now.

I was thinking this earlier.

Maybe if we had a thread for people to post examples, we could accumulate enough supporting info for anyone wishing to do so?

I would like to see high profile incidents where we have been cheated or treated differently, played on a loop on a tv behind the manager, at every one of our press conferences.

Could it be Green signed the right to have a rant at Refs or anything else to do with the SFA when he signed that agreement?

I've said for years that we need to create and fund a bespoke professional group to solely focus on media, propaganda, promoting our values and the resolute defence of our fans, club , players and culture.

This small team could oversee such duties and ensure we fight fire with Fire. This group would ensure that no one has a free pop at us without being directly challenged. The group could gather and compile evidence on all media articles, live televised games and commentary and carry out detailed research on all of our enemies.

The people involved would be suitably experienced and equipped to ensure and determine which courses of action were necessary at the relevant times. They would also have the resources to ensure that the most effective media platforms are reached. This would make such a difference and would be a great source of comfort for us fans whilst offering a major deterrent to the current arrogant cowards who consistently attack us.

How many times has the twisted cheat Don Robertson given a player a booking for a celebration or a second yellow/red? How many yellow’s have been given out for a celebration this season?

I’ve said before we need ex-players with no current connection with the club to comment every time.
unfortunately the Scottish press don’t give them the platform to air their views so would need to be social media

if it goes against the scum or they want to justify a decision against us they’ll ask every ex player until they get the reaction the want

The media and everyone in Scottish football are already well aware of the bias against us but they just don't care because in their minds we are fair game. I agree that the club should be highlighting it but that's the problem we will face.

It probably boils down to some of us actually logging this stuff - spreadsheets or word documents highlighting incidents going against us or similar things from our opponents being ignored.

Even then we’d just get called paranoid.

What is patently obvious is that the cameras are following Morelos looking for the slightest indiscretion so they can highlight that he's a lucky boy to still be on the field, ©Sutton.
This is happening every game he plays here now and they're trying to make him out to be the 'bad boy' of Scottish football.
Someone posted a clip from yesterday's game of a Motherwell player having a kick at Morelos calf after the ball was away, yet, this doesn't get highlighted as it doesn't suit the narrative. This is happening regularly to him but they only show one side of the story.
There's no argument that Morelos and Rangers are refereed to different standards!!

We should and put it out on all social media platforms each week highlighting repeat offenders and their inconsistency from one week to the next

The club don't even need to look that far.
2 handball yesterday. 1 a shot by us heading for the back of the net. Nothing to see.
1 against Alfie when going for the ball.

Every single club could put a bit on their website as the op suggests it is football a game of human emotions with everything that goes wit that. Refs aren’t cheating they are however influenced by the constant negative media coverage of our club.

We want to change things we need to change the way we deal with the media. Not talking to them and not challenging them is pointless.

It creates the conditions for hating our club, players and fans to become normal mainstream behaviour. We allowed this to happen as much as our enemies made it happen.

We need a very different strategy.

People want the club to act like some paranoid Celtic fan now? We could get that Paul Larkin tool to direct it.
There it is, knew someone would come away with the sad and tire old line.
Funnily enough these paranoid Celtc fans you mention seem to be seeing their team enjoying a lot of success but hey we’ll just stick to the old dignified silence as it might not get us anywhere but it’s the right thing to do.
You’re as big a dinosaur as our board.

They are enjoying success because their only rival got put down the divisions and they had a free shot to build up money for 8 years.

I don't want to see our support turn out how theirs did after the 90's. It's heading that way on here already.

Tell us where it's wrong then.

Show us all these bad decisions that go in our favour.
