Their manager has vowed ‘to eradicate racism’ after the Rangers striker Alfredo Morelos was racially abused from the stands on Wednesday night.

No deflection, ifs, buts, maybes - other virtue signalling clubs, commentators and media outlets in this country could take a lesson here.

Well done the Killie fan that highlighted it on her twitter.
I'm not for a moment saying it didn't happen but we need to be careful here, all it takes is 1 Tim to put a Rangers badge on his twitter and then go on a rant accusing us of all sorts. Investigation is fine but it's a fine line between that and things actually spiralling out of control

Radio five live are reporting it on their main news bulletin. “It’s not the first time the player has been racially abused this season in Scotland”

Compare and contrast that reporting with bbc scotland‘s utter hatred of all things Rangers and particularly Alfie.
5 Live is a proper, objective radio station.

While I commend the club for their action, the real action should be getting taken by the police.It's their function to investigate hate crime.More should be done to drag the SNP government into condemning this type of behaviour.Simply wrong in a supposedly modern country.

Whoever tweeted it is insignificant, to be honest.

I'm just glad that it's being highlighted.
Definitely.

But I think it is significant in all honesty, coming from a Kilmarnock fan who heard it first hand is really significant in my opinion.

It should have been reported that way mate.

It’s a live Police incident, we won’t say anything if at all

The club have taken action however
Dave King needs to sanction the club publicly calling for a meeting of the governing bodies to counter the growing evidence of racism against our players in particular.
That there's a live Police incident is just another fig leaf for them to hide behind.
Lead from the front Rangers.

What?? Isn't there a video showing the incident?

What he means is.... and it's a stupid point... but he's suggesting that a Tim will try and say that a Rangers fan tweeted the video and therefore it's made up.

Ridiculous.
Remember the £30 software, it's not beyond them. They are very good at this

That fact it’s now being investigated & action is being taken is down to the club tbf

The Killie manager, Dyer, seems decent. Wasn`t much of a gloatfest from him after beating us. As folk have said, will he be treated the same as Alfie. ie. it didn`t happen, where`s the proof from cunts like Michael Stewart.

Mate, I cannot fathom just how stupid people can be to not get this. It pains me.
I'm apparently one of the stupid.
Please explain how a live police incident prevents the club publicly calling for a meeting of the governing bodies to counter the growing evidence of racism against our players in particular.
Ease your pain, elucidate.

ALLEGED, becoming one of the most used words in Scottish football, where rangers are concerned.
You have to use that word until someone is identified, charged and convicted, otherwise you run the risk that other people may be wrongly accused and end up suing you.

We should get a top journalist from South America to highlight this small RACIST COUNTRY if it's not black people it's English people getting abused.

It's pretty simple. Two things, really.

1.) An employee of Rangers has been victim of a crime. It is wholly inappropriate to comment on matters relating to live police investigations, as it can be seen to be attempting to influence the outcome of any investigation and/or trial.

2.) Words are more powerful after convictions are made. Why do you think victim statements only come after trials? Or why the last statement we made was after the last conviction? We had a HUGE debacle in the media for the 12 year old kid case as they felt they were able to deny the racism as there was no proof. Commenting after the proof is enshrined in case law, gives no opportunity for retort.
