Modern day police are just a bunch of shitebags, prob to scared to stop him in case they got leathered.

To be fair, they probably had their hands full videoing our fans to be sure we didn't sing anything naughty. It's all about priorities.

A question for the posters who know the rules of the game inside out.
A player can be disciplined for aggression towards an opponent player or bench, his own team mate and match officials, but can a player be cautioned or sent off for an altercation with a spectator?

Yes absolutely they can.

That said I think the ref dealt with it correctly today. The St Mirren player just barged the guy once to get him away from their group, a sending off would have been totally against any common sense.

Thank you.
But would any official been so lenient if one of our players shoved a pitch invader, no matter who the fan supported?

Yes mate, but I think the referee got today right.

I remember a goalkeeper being sent off for throwing punches at a pitch invader.

It's not a police matter on the park (unless he assaults someone). Up to the stewards then a police matter off the field of play.

Trying to work out who won today’s extreme stupidity award, the pitch invader or the stretcher bearers who decided to walk from near enough the corner down the full side of the pitch opposite the main stand, behind the goal and back up the main stand side side?

He actually should have been sent off surely?

Im sure it's the stewards who deal with pitch invaders and police dont lay hands on.the person until theyve been taken off

I think you are right.

But it’s mental. Stewards are paid a pittance and there was hundreds (?) of cops there.

A pitch invader should be treated with the utmost seriousness.

Whilst the police & stewards all ran towards the few Rangers supporters who were shouting at him.

Yes it’s happened a few times. Ajax were one team affected by the rule and I’m sure there players left the park in protest.

Someone had to say it.

The best bit was that he was being subbed, and thought he was getting a free shot at the guy. But the ref red carded him and wouldn't let the sub come on.
I can imagine that doing down well with the Shettleston gaffer! Seen some mad stuff at the Juniors but nothing involving a player hitting a fan.

What was the story with the Bear in their stand getting huckled out, did he actually go in their end with a Rangers top on ?

Didn't Hazard get sent off when playing for Chelsea for kicking a ball boy - believe he was hammered by the FA and the club with a large fine . He should have been sent off.
That said the St Boo fan deserved it and well done to the player

What a weapon.

Jogs 40 yards and their players have stopped celebrating by the time he gets there, one of them decks him and he jogs back where he came from.

Only one steward bothered their arse to half heartedly give ‘chase’ too. Would the same happen if they’d come from our stands?

Bet he feels a right dick now anyway.

Edit: Forgot to add that he was huckled in the stand and papped out
Only papped out? Not charged. Strange. Couldn't have been wearing a Rangers scarf.
