It's a load of ***** when the authorities start clamping down on verbal tirades... we will never even begin to scrape the surface of this whining turd's nutf*ckery if it's quashed at the merest sighting. 

 

Let him speak, I say. Let him be covered in his own faeces.

From the SFA disciplinary notice:

Quote

Disciplinary Rule allegedly breached:  

Disciplinary Rule 72 No ... Team Official ... shall in an interview... (i) criticise the Decision(s) and/or performance(s) of any or all match official(s) in such a way as to indicate bias or incompetence on the part of such match official...

From the BBC:

Quote

Speaking on Rangers TV, the Ibrox manager said it "would be interesting if it was the other way around".

I'm not sure what grounds there are for contesting the charge. It seems to be pretty much the exemplar of what the rule attempts to address.

Perhaps the hope is that the rule won't be applied; and perhaps that's a reasonable hope. I'm not sure how well the SFA and its proxies (such as independent panels) stick to their rules.

Certainly, if an Alloa manager ever came out with something like that, I would be astonished if he were to escape sanction for such a clear breach. To paraphrase SG, it will be interesting to see if that also applies to the Rangers manager.

Trust you to be up to date with all things Sevco,  I don't really recall any fuss about it at the time and if Morelos had made a dangerous tackle like that then he'd have been sent off.

 

Careful now.

Hopefully Rangers can claw their way back to the top of the SPFL statement league after being dislodged by Hearts & Partick.

You do remember that Morelos dodged three red card incidents in one match against Celtic.

God no! Every time I see a The Rangers F.C. Ltd statement I get a vision of this bellend reading it.

Pls make them stop. Award the statement league now to Partick on the basis they are not Hearts.

I've always thought it's a bit crazy that managers are fined etc for answering leading questions.
That said rules are rules.


The quote above is from Rangers TV, you think they would ask a leading question of their own manager?

Yes. Happens on Aberdeen's in-house channel every time. Can't see why *** TV would be any different.

He got away with a sexual assault on Ryan Christie so I imagine his chances of escaping punishment for a tackle would be quite high

I’m not convinced the SFA are going to be able to prove their charge. Gerrard said “it would be interesting if it was the other way around”.

Now, I think most people will be able to surmise what Gerrard is getting at, but his words have not said outright there is any bias or incompetence, he has essentially asked a hypothetical question.

I reckon any decent lawyer (or whoever it is that represents you at these tribunals)  would get the charge thrown out. (And no, the irony is not lost on me that Rangers’ lawyers haven’t exactly covered themselves in glory over the years...)

Take them to court. That usually goes well.
