Ban from the Scottish cup


Recommended Posts

Daily Record reporting that the guy who Wallace launched his chin at was taken in and allowed to go free to celebrate Hibs Cup win.

 

Are there absolutely no morals in Scotland anymore ??

 

Presumably we would all get that treatment if we take a swing at someone in a hibs jersey?

IT is understood Dale Pryde - who was pictured being restrained by police at Hampden - was back on the streets of Edinburgh on Sunday afternoon to enjoy his team’s victory parade.

A HIBS fan seen punching Rangers captain Lee Wallace at Hampden was set free to celebrate his team’s Scottish Cup win.

 

Teenager Dale Pryde was photographed lunging at Wallace at the height of the chaos on the pitch after the final whistle.

 

Later photographs showed him face down on the ground in handcuffs, being restrained by a policewoman and three stewards.

Eleven fans were arrested during the mayhem inside the ground. It is believed Pryde was among them.

 

But it’s understood that none of those held appeared in court yesterday.

 

And it’s understood Pryde had been freed – to enjoy his team’s victory parade through Edinburgh on Sunday afternoon.

On Sunday, a friend said Pryde had spent the day celebrating Hibs’ first Scottish Cup victory in 114 years.

 

He added: “Apparently he spent the night in Glasgow and has been drinking and partying all day in Leith.

 

“He’s been named on social media by loads of folk grassing him up.”

Police have set up a dedicated team to catch the hooligans behind Saturday’s violence, and have appealed to the public to identify the culprits.

 

And today, a man photographed kicking a young Hibs fan in the head on the pitch can be identified as a Rangers supporter who had travelled to the final from Northern Ireland.

 

Several sources named the attacker as Darren McDonald, 39, from Ballymena in County Antrim.

 

McDonald regularly travels to Glasgow to support his team and is known for keeping a low profile on social media.

 

But the tattoos on his arm, and his bright pink T-shirt, made him stand out at the National Stadium.

 

The Hibs fan can be seen holding his head and curling into a ball as McDonald runs away after the attack. Scores of fans on social media reacted with horror to the image, with one calling it disgusting and another saying it made her sick.

 

The same Hibs fan was also photographed being attacked by a second man wearing a blue jumper and jeans.

 

Police Scotland said they could not confirm whether officers had spoken to McDonald about the Hampden violence.

 

The Police Service of Northern Ireland refused to say whether they were liaising with colleagues in Scotland. They said it was not their investigation.

 

McDonald could not be reached for comment.

 

Photos of him appear on the Ballymena Legends Loyal Facebook page, run by another Rangers fan. One shot shows McDonald celebrating outside Hampden after last month’s semi-final victory over Celtic.

 

As the hunt continued for those behind the violence at Hampden, a Hibs fan and lawyer who travelled from America for the game appeared in court to admit punching an off-duty policeman on a late-night train.

 

Stuart Gilgannon, 34, who was born in Scotland but studied law in the US, flew back to Scotland from Wisconsin to see the game.

 

But he found himself under arrest after he took a train from Glasgow at 10.40pm on Sunday to visit his mum in Paisley.

 

Prosecutor Maureen McGovern told Paisley Sheriff Court that Gilgannon interrupted a conversation between two other passengers, off-duty police officers Robert Howat and Alison Taggart. She added: “The accused, made some impolite remarks, if I can put it that way.”

 

Ms McGovern said the officers told Gilgannon he had gone way too far, and he said: “I’m going to slap you.”

 

He then punched Robert on the right side of the face.

 

Gilgannon appeared in court after a night in the cells and admitted assaulting Robert. A charge that he assaulted Alison by lunging at her and headbutting her on the body was dropped.

 

John Gardner, defending, said Gilgannon had been provoked by banter about what happened at the final.

 

He added: “His take on the comments differed from the Crown. He is keen to put this behind him and is in a position to pay a financial penalty.”

 

Sheriff Robert Fife fined Gilgannon £500, reduced from £750 because of his guilty plea.

 

Hibs chairman Rod Petrie appeared to backtrack yesterday on his post-match claim that the pitch invasion was “over-exuberance”. He said: “It is now clear that supporters being on the pitch at the end of the match led to acts of violence and disorder.

 

“I condemn, and the club condemns, all of the violence and unacceptable conduct perpetrated on the pitch and elsewhere.

 

“There is absolutely no place for it in the game of football.

 

“Hibernian will do all it can to support the criminal investigations to ensure that those who have transgressed face the consequences of their actions.”

 

Rangers reacted furiously to SFA vice-chairman Petrie’s comments on Saturday, as well as strongly criticising the response of Hibs, the SFA, the BBC and First Minister Nicola Sturgeon to the disorder.

 

They acknowledged that a “tiny minority” of their own fans were also on the pitch, but said they were defending Rangers’ players and staff under “severe provocation” from Hibs fans.

 

Rangers said all 11 of their players were assaulted or spat on during the pitch invasion.

 

Hibs said yesterday that they were “sorry that a number of Hibernian supporters invaded the pitch”. They added: “Whilst emotions were running high, the club cannot condone supporters coming onto the field of play.”

 

They promised to fully co-operate with police and take “the strongest possible sanctions” against fans involved in “criminal activity or unacceptable behaviour”.

 

And they welcomed the launch of an SFA commission of inquiry into “all aspects of the staging and management of the final”.

I have just had a wee look on here before I turn in, only to find a HOBO on here!! Everyone knows how I feel about them, I know I am new on here but please ban the pondlife. I just dont get it? Why come on here? Really? Get a life!!

 

coop, neutralscot has actually been a periodic visitor and normally speaks a lot of sense.

 

However, his last two posts are the one you see above and one about how :

 

1. Stubbs is a better manager than Warburton (whilst Gers were on a rocky spell but still at top of table)

2. Hibs squad was better

3. Wallace is average

4. Hibs training facilities are far better than Rangers.

 

He's running himself pretty close to being banned. But I am leaving him for now as I am hoping he comes back to face the music of his ridiculous posting.

I'm not saying he should be banned but they banned me from their forums for this which was a response to a topic titled "Ridiculous Ranger's Statement"

 

The absolute reality is that it's not going to matter how you try to spin this or ignore it or downplay it among yourselves.

 

There will be no agreement from anyone else that this was anything but shocking and dangerous behaviour from not a handful of people but thousands and already the actual result is a side issue with the English media running with labels like "feral" with barely a word on the actual result.

 

There is no point in trying to talk around it by going on about how somebody else did something else at some other time. It wont take any focus off it. And does anyone seriously imagine that only Rangers would have issued such a statement after such an event?

 

Any club would have and it's likely the SFA will too. It's all this final is going to be remembered for just like the 1980 final and since views on this kind of thing are infinitely more stern than they were in 1980 the chances are there will be severe repercussions.

I like to think that we are above petty banning here though. No need for us to stoop to their level. Our bans are ones which are fully warranted :thup:

I agree. You can see my response to their topic. It's perfectly civil and to the point. A view but obviously they can't stomach anything they can't refute. Seemingly their view is take your reality out of here. As for this guy coming in here with his claims go for it but you need to justify what you're saying. To begin with I want examples of what would get Rangers docked 25 points every season. Starting with this season just passed.

There are so many holes in his post he should be selling it as Swiss cheese. That's why I'm letting him stay for now. I want him to come on and defend his comments when they are indefensible.

Just to be clearer, I meant it was a fact that someone had a swing at Wallace. It's a criminal matter now, I just find it impossible to see any sporting sanction of a club in Scotland, for the behaviour of their fans as long as there is limited liability.

 

I am guilty of hyperbole (perhaps) by saying 25pts and a closed stadium, but take celtic for example: multiple flare incidents, songs glorifying the pira on a regular basis. What do you consider appropriate sanctions? Why isn't it happening?

 

Think of the incredible scottish talent for whataboutery. It would be a cluster if we reverted to strict liability.

 

Craig, I only post these daft wee things to give youse something to moan at. Especially you! Stubbs defo has something. though. (I'll line them up...)
