From FF,  Hypocrisy and bigotry at it's finest, blatant and up front in Rangers face.

A council boss has been accused of hypocrisy after backing moves to make Hampden more fan-friendly – weeks after scuppering a similar move by Rangers.

Glasgow City Council leader Susan Aitken wants to see improvements at the National Stadium that will persuade the SFA to stay at the spiritual home of Scottish football.

Safe standing areas and fan zones could be part of the moves on the table.

But earlier this month, she joined forces with her depute David McDonald and Govan councillor Stephen Dornan to demand Glasgow Life deny Rangers the use of the complex on Edmiston Drive for a proposed fans zone.

Labour’s Frank McAveety, who is a former Glasgow City Council leader and city MSP Pauline McNeill claimed SNP councillor Aitken, whose Langside ward includes Hampden, has overstepped the mark with her intervention.

McNeill said: “Questions must be answered about this intervention, which is totally improper.

“Glasgow is a great football city and the city council should be working with all clubs.”

Come on, let's not bring football allegiances into politics.


The SNP are a cracking bunch.  None of them bring football allegiances into their thinking.  Honestly.  They're all fair minded when it comes to it.
