SFA hedging their bets in case the Scottish cup is restarted in order to maximise our suspensions with European and domestic fixtures piling up?I’m surprised nothing else has happened with our players, Jones and Edmondson were charged immediately
They have no intention of investigating Dubai
It is what happened when they got there that matters. They are guilty of multiple breaches in Dubai. The photos and videos prove it.
There won’t be any red card for football.Problem for us is the press. They set the agenda and have diverted attention away from Dubai by emphasising they were given permission. No mention of the breaches.
Now for Rangers. Headlines and calls for sanctions. Maybe even mention a "red card" for Scottish football.
They were allowed to go.
They were allowed to go.
However, no one said as soon as you land in Dubai life turns back to normal and you can get down to the bar as if the virus has been left behind.
However, that is just what they did, and guess what?
Yes, that's right they had players go down with Covid.
Until the SFA punish these Filth players involved they are stymied from punishing others.
Our club knows this and will be waiting with lawyers briefed and ready to pounce.
That said, the club will deliver its own punishment because we were the potential victims in this breech.
We released a statement on Jones and Edmundsons suspensions saying we accept them and acknowledge this is the standard.TLB’s “ it was incredible that we only got 2 positive cases “ should have done for them.
I’m cool with Rangers accepting reasonable sanctions, however, IF we don’t publicly address the glaring double standards, we become part of the problem
I was thinking the exact same, maybe what’s holding up the Rangers 5 punishment is that Rangers won’t except it unless there’s punishment for DubaiLack of Dubai investigation makes it very hard for them to pursue the 5 in my opinion. They had pictures of their Captain and Manager in clear breach of social distancing rules and the communal area aspect of the rules for the teams. That’s without looking at any other breaches - Duffy on the plane, the COVID outbreak etc
Indeed.only 49 tarriers went and possibly anyone of them should face punishment however where's the sheep and hibs in this?
If 7+ game bans had been handed out after the incident to those who broke protocols there's a chance hibs/sheep could challenge for 2nd, why dont they seem to care?
They've not had full training. Only Patterson for me has a chance to redeem himself... the rest will be off I thinkI take it our players are currently self isolating? As far as I am aware they haven't been charged so would be available after isolation period? Which would be tomorrow?
They absolutely don't deserve what's coming to them. The punishment had been deliberately held back as to not incorporate the only ge where they were missing anyway due to isolating. Also whatever is coming to them will be made up on a whim.I know our players deserve what’s coming to them but surely the Dubai debacle has to see some punishments dished out first.
