Rangers hoping for clean break as sectarian singing stalks club again

Rangers hoping for clean break as sectarian singing stalks club again”

The eye-catching feature of the proceedings which Rangers would rather not have had to observe was, of course, the seats compelled by Uefa to be vacant because of sectarian chanting heard from that quarter during the first-round qualifier against St Joseph's, of Gibraltar.

The 22-year-old on-loan Liverpool winger suffered a knock in the Gers' goalless first-leg draw with the Legionaries in Poland.

'Rangers has today informed UEFA's control, ethics and disciplinary body that the club will not be requesting tickets for its next European away match, ' said the club statement.

Rangers manager Steven Gerrard will make a late decision on the involvement of Sheyi Ojo in their Europa League qualifying game against Legia Warsaw on Thursday. A outcome of sectarian singing from section BF1 of the ground that evening is that UEFA ordered a partial closure of our stadium for tomorrow night's crucial game.

"Those fans responsible for this (Thursday's) partial closure of Ibrox Stadium need to understand that they are damaging our club".

They warned that "a further incidence" in the second leg against Legia "could lead to a ground closure".

The statement continued: "This kind of behaviour has no place at Ibrox, or anywhere else where our many teams appear". Offenders must please stop.

When the matches reach fever pitch, will any Rangers fan dare sing a song deemed sectarian while the eyes of the world's footballing authorities are on them? "Maybe it will make some people think about what they're going to say in the future, hopefully", he said.

"By supporting Rangers in the correct way, the rest of us must strive to protect our great club". If the club get into the group stage there could be some fantastic ties.
