Club 1872 Statement on UEFA Citation

Dear member,

Club 1872 commends the vast majority of the Rangers support for their conduct over the course of the game last night - which marked our long awaited, winning return to European competition.

The atmosphere was very positive and a colourful display by the Union Bears at the start of the game added to the overall spectacle. The Rangers support can be a great asset to the Europa League this season and we hope to see many more nights like this in the coming months.

Unfortunately we have today been informed that the actions of a small number of supporters in the Broomloan Stand, who threw balled-up pieces of paper onto the pitch, has led to Rangers being cited by UEFA. Whilst this appeared to be meant in good humour and was carried out by a number of younger supporters, it has nonetheless led directly to a situation where Rangers now have to put forward a submission to UEFA. At this stage we are unsure of the nature of any possible sanction, if any.

We appreciate that most supporters will see this as a very minor matter, and we would share that view. However, it is another reminder that we have to hold ourselves to as high a standard as possible. We want to see colourful displays at the stadium in the future and would ask supporters not to risk jeopardising these.

We will be liaising with Rangers on this issue and will seek to gain a better understanding of how a citation of this type comes about following what, on the face of things, seems to be such an innocuous incident. We hope that this will allow us to better inform our supporters in the future about how they can avoid action, and walk the fine line that exists between enjoying the game and potentially falling foul of UEFA regulations.

"A small number of supporters" it was pretty much the whole broomloan front.

Fucking stupidity but not surprising. As soon as the ref had to stop the game we knew there would be some sort of consequences.

Aye and they were that fuckin stupid when the Rangers staff and Kenny were throwing them off the dicks were throwing them back on - arseholes

It was very silly what they did especially after Kenny and the groundsmen went to help clear up and they kept throwing on more. I found that :facepalm: and this :lol: but hopefully the youngsters will learn. 

As for UEFA's rules they are just nuts IMO. :britney:

Before the whole arguement of wether it was stupid or not unfolds . Footballs fucked . The goalie himself seemed to be laughing 

He was laughing because he used the paper as an excuse to get the game stopped and kill the momentum we had at the time

Was always going to happen, the sooner some of our fans realise the club are directly responsible for our actions in European games the better. Paper or not you can't throw things at the opposition goalkeeper.

trying to sanitise the whole game/atmosphere and make it more American / liberal/ or millennial snowflake friendly, take your pick.

Just read the goalie was greatly offended, there is to be a community get together tonight at George Sq and the keeper is invited for a 'hug-in'.

In liberal lefty snowflake Scotland they've probably got a gofundme page set up already.

Sadly some of our fans need to realise the consequences of their actions no matter how inconsequential those actions may seem.   This has been going on for years after every card display without issue but this is Europe and we need to learn.

The problem is there's an element that don't give a shit about anything other than their own juvenile antics. 

Not to worry though - I'm sure that the classroom-capers loyal will all dig deep and reimburse the club when big bad UEFA decide to schlong us to tune of thousands of pounds...
