That photo's a few years old, as the army has stopped using that type of camo.

Still pretty stupid of them to pose like that, seriously what goes on in some peoples minds?

Hell mend them...

Don't you mean "Helmand them"?

Really they have the IQ of a pigeon.

Imagine doing that then thinking it is acceptable and would not be seen by the public.

It's not the rangers supporter's flag. It's the NI flag and the Nazi salute that will get people upset/angry.

Silly people.

The Union Flag is inscribed with the words "Invicta Loyal", the name of a Kent-based Glasgow Rangers supporters club, and below it hangs the flag of Northern Ireland.

There is a suggestion the soldiers may be making a "Red Hand of Ulster" salute, once used by Rangers fans as a sign of allegiance with Northern Ireland Loyalists, the MoS said.

But Democratic Unionist MP Sammy Wilson said: "This is not a salute made by marching bands (in Northern Ireland). It is not clear what the context is but I do not think it can be explained away as some type of Red Hand of Ulster salute."

Jeffrey Donaldson MP of the Democratic Unionist Party added: "Anyone who would imitate a Nazi salute in front of the Union Flag or wearing the uniform dishonours these flags and the British Army.

"Any symbolism associated with fascism has no place in the Unionist tradition or any regiment of the British Army.

Poor Tedi .. he just cannot keep away.

If the MOD have confirmed it .. good enough for me.

Whether the photo is a few years old or not it matters not a jot.

The fact that they posted it in a public domain is.

Only Ringers fans could really be that dumb .. Out of uniform ... do what you like.

In uniform .. pay the price.

Tedi hasn't mentioned this yet and i fail to see why you would bring him into this.

It was a right wing salute ...call it a nazi salute or whatever that was used in the '80s when singing Rule Britannia and 'The Queen' at games. With the arrival of PC it was more or less done away with and everybody left a little embarrassed by it all. There is actually a picture of a Rangers fan standing with an Israeli flag giving a nazi salute.

Then there came the Red Hand of Ulster salute excuse. Good luck to anybody doing that at a Loyalist parade in Northern Ireland! A community that takes great pride in the sacrifices they made in destroying National Socialism.

Regarding the dozens of rangers fans that gave nazi salutes in Israel during a European game a few years back , it was Rangers themselves who claimed to UEFA that it was a red hand salute.

Rangers offered a swift response to UEFA's call for clarification, and a spokesman for the European body told PA Sport: "The disciplinary unit will not be taking any further action.

"It is also the sign of the Red Hand of Ulster and this convinced the disciplinary unit to end their investigation."

Pretty crazy stuff - you'd think that there wouldn't be a single person in Scotland stupid enough to defend a straight-arm salute, but apparently there are many.

I mean, how hard is this? Just say, those guys are idiots, nothing to do with our club.... But naw. That would apparently be "giving in" to the hardcore Republican ideologues at the, uh, at the Daily Mail.

Also, bonus stupidity points to the guy on Rangers Media saying that the Romans gave straight-arm salutes, and that calling the Romans "fascists" would be PC Gone Mad. Clearly written by a guy who knows nothing about the origin of the word "fascism".

I didn't click on your link but i remember the head of Rangers security giving this excuse during a documentary about the clubs support. I couldn't believe what i was hearing. This was the same guy that banned the Dublin Loyal banner from Ibrox for having the joke on it 'Behind Enemy Lines'. :rolleyes:
