What's the most "Tin Pot" thing you've seen in the SPFL

Stopping Lennon and Sutton getting in is brilliant. More clubs should ban rival ex players, IMO. 

That bigoted weasel Neil McCann was never seen in McDiarmid Park while Tommy Wright remained in charge. I do wonder if we refused his media pass or perhaps he was to intimidated to turn up.

It’s just a pity that the broadcasters involved , BT in this case and the BBC don’t take more of a stand against them. Instead these broadcasters seem to be prepared to allow them to discriminate against certain individuals without much , if any , protest.  BBC Radio Scotland , in particular, come across as being very weak by still devoting as much airtime and discussions to them , despite being treated like shit by them. Personally , I think the BBC would be justified in keeping the reporting on all Rangers games , not just those at Ibrox, to the bare minimum ......the scoreline and nothing more.

So that's where I ask the question, as Rangers never took that action, do you think there was a genuine belief that Lennon and Sutton would be set upon?

I think it's a bit of both. They used it as an excuse, but also it is genuinely the case that Lennon (less so Sutton) might not be safe in and around Ibrox. This is the same support that tried to send him a bomb. If he was able to be attacked by Hearts fans whilst on the side of the pitch at Tynecastle (the most protected part of the ground), there must be some reasonable chance that it could happen a club with an even more feral and twisted element to their fanbase.

So, based on this statement alone then, is my original opinion on the matter (copy below) all that unreasonable, considering that is what seems to have sparked this whole back and forth?

I very much doubt the actual reason they aren’t being let in has anything to do with potential fan behaviour given it’s never been an issue in the past.

I suspect it’s more to do with the movement towards making life difficult for pundits or media to access Ibrox who the club feel have been unfavourable towards us.

An equally bad look though, agreed.

The greatest lie in football: "noone likes us, we don't care".

This is exactly what I came on to post. I've never seen any fanbase care more about being disliked.

More to the point @Jacky1990.  If a few bad apples….  Stop laughing, were indeed to shout a few nasty bigoted things at Lennon.  UEFA might pick that up.  As been shown in the past at this very ground they have no qualms in ordering sections of the ground shut.
 

Perhaps they’d go a step further this time.  
 

But it’s hardly likely that Rangers would release a statement saying.  Our fans are bigoted morons and if he comes they’ll shout that at him.

Edit: Just had a thought, and this is what I actually believe is behind this. Rangers were aware that a large element of their support would shout horrible, bigoted shite at Lennon and Sutton and were worried that this would be picked up on camera and they then wouldnt have a leg to stand on and would be forced to ban a fair few on their fans. Cowards who refuse to police their own fans sounds about right.

This is what I had assumed from the start.  The club can’t trust their support and have thrown them under a bus but rather that than dealing with the aftermath. Rangers fans think this decision is staunch and have lapped it up without realising that they and the club come out as the bad guys.
