RST Respond To Collymore


Recommended Posts

We note that Stan Collymore has become the latest self-publicist to use the serious issue of sectarianism to raise his profile. Going by Mr Collymore’s comments, his understanding of the subject is about as comprehensive as his ability to win trophies as a player. Whilst he had a mediocre career on the pitch it would appear he hopes to excel as an internet troll. We are loath to respond but see that sadly the press have picked up his comments.

Rangers are currently being run into the ground by an inept and possibly corrupt regime. Mr Collymore is aware that there will be no response from the club and so it once again falls on the fans to deal with agenda driven attacks on our support.

If Mr Collymore was interested in sectarianism then he would deal with the subject evenly. As a well-known Celtic fan, who is apparently well versed in fan behaviour at the last Old Firm game, perhaps he could discuss Celtic fans’ sectarian banners, mocking British war dead, which had the word “Hun†sprawled on them? He could also discuss sectarian “Go Home Ya Hun†chants directed at the Rangers support. Or he could discuss the sectarian motivation behind attacks on Rangers fans both young and old at the game. Sadly, like so many commentators of his type, he knows Rangers are currently a soft target and acts accordingly. Mr Collymore of course has a history of cowardly attacks on those he doesn't think can defend themselves.

The Rangers support will continue to take the issue of sectarianism very seriously. We will not however take lessons from Mr Collymore who has a history of sectarian behaviour. He has used the sectarian term “Hun†towards Rangers fans on social media and has suggested to the British people of Northern Ireland that they should “F*** off back to Britain.†We think it would be fair to suggest that sectarianism is not his only flaw.

Rangers have done significantly more than most other clubs, including Mr Collymore’s Celtic, to deal with issues around fans’ behaviour over the years and we are sure that will continue. The efforts of those who are genuinely interested in eradicating sectarianism are not assisted by “vile hypocrites†like Mr Collymore who exacerbate any genuine issues with ill advised, inaccurate and inane interventions. If this is the type of man that BT Sport wish to associate themselves with then not only Rangers fans, but fans of all clubs, have the option of voting with their subscriptions."

Would have been better off ignoring the woman-beating idiot, he's already lost his job for his stupid remarks and now we can let him fade back into total irrelevancy where people like him belong.
