Ongoing issues with UEFA (two sanctions and counting)

Recommended Posts

Shouldn’t be much for FARE to report tonight (from us anyway) but you never know with them. Indeed, we could be at least fined because the banner the club put up was too wee. There will be a rule about dimensions..

The Rangers board are expecting a another charge from the governing body as they await their fate for alleged racist and sectarian behaviour during their away clash in Legia Warsaw.

UEFA are investigating Rangers over a THIRD charge of sectarian chanting.

The Ibrox club was severely sanctioned by the governing body when 3000 seats were left empty at last night’s dramatic victory over Legia Warsaw after unacceptable singing at last month’s St Joseph’s game.

They have been charged again for a dodgy song book in Poland last week and the disciplinary committee is meeting today to discuss this issue.

Rangers have tried to stave off heavy sanctions by insisting they won’t take tickets for their first away game in the Europa League group phase.

However, they have been rocked by another investigation that there was sectarian abuse in Denmark on August 8, which took place when Rangers beat Midtjylland 4-2.

This new citing took place before the Legia charge which was revealed on Wednesday.

Managing Director Stewart Robertson made the revelation to a group of supporters ahead of last night’s glory night against Legia.

He had called in a number of fans who are prominent on social media to try to help the club drive out sectarian songs.

This latest investigation could lead to a complete stadium closure which would be a financial disaster.

Rangers can pull in over £1million from ticket sales, corporate sales and other revenues from a big European night.

The UEFA probe has taken the shine off another magnificent achievement by Steven Gerrardand his players after Alfredo Morelos fired his side into the groups.

Rangers have become the first team to win all four qualifying ties in two successive seasons and reach he group phase of the Europa League.

They are unbeaten in all 16 matches and overall Gerrard has only lost two matches in 22 which is a quite remarkable record.

The draw for the group phase takes place as 12.00pm.
