Hopefully found and punished. Disgrace that this sort of thing happens in 2020. Nothing but a Keyboard hardman, hide behind a PC and people think it's ok to do as they please

It’s pathetic and needs to be dealt with properly by the authorities.

Re Rangers, if we had 11 Chinese or 11 Asians or 11 of any origin I wouldn’t care as long as we were winning.

Think back to how welcome all our black/ ethnic and foreign players have been made to feel at Ibrox.

And when we signed catholic’s the abuse came from those who hate us as a club.

Racists like that have to be shamed and punished. No question it is utterly ridiculous.

At the same time, the occasional brainless halfwit doesn't mean as a country we are institutionally racist.

Social media morons do not represent the wider population. On either side of all this.

Kind of sums social media up these days, post some ridiculous offensive shite for the attention, then either delete account, but in most cases post a video saying how sorry u are and that u have been going through some life issues again trying to crave more attention.

But apparently players should give up the BLM support because this is Britain and racism ain’t really an issue here - copyright some middle aged white punter

Hope the despicable cùnt is caught and banged up.
To be fair, and as someone who is not at all bothered by the whole BLM thing, an individual being despicable is not really justification for anything other than that individual being vilified. There is and will always be individuals who are scum and will display this, be it racism or anything else. Entire movements are not justified by the actions of a tiny minority and if anything, the reaction to this shows that there is less need for BLM than might have been imagined, not more.

You put it much better than my attempt at saying the same thing.

Just the tip...

It’s not an isolated incident though is it. As long as these types exist people should always be free to show their support for any movement promoting racial equality, especially when it’s something as peaceful and inoffensive as players taking a knee, which for some reason seems rile a hell of a lot of folk up, even on here.

And lets be honest this kind of thinking isn’t limited to social media either. From my own experiences of being out there in the big bad world there are still more than enough bad eggs to make promoting racial equality well worth while. Yeah they aren’t a majority by any stretch, but they’re still there, and “ahh forget about this movement, it was just one guy” isn’t the right attitude to have in my personal opinion. But everyone is entitled to theirs.
