Yes they did actually.
"Given the seriousness of the allegations, and given that the unidentified source appeared to be a police officer who wanted to address criticism over the conduct of the police following the match, it was concerning that the newspaper had sought to corroborate the account only with police contacts who were not present during the alleged incidents".
Totally inexcusable & imo anyone trying to defend the record on this one is just as bad as them. It's clear cut, yet you defend them. It's your opinion which your entitled to, but I won't be giving that scum paper any hits, regardless If it's a Rangers blog. Sad times we live in but fuck them. They chose what to write & will pay the price.
