Club 1872 Statement on UEFA Citation

30 June, 2017

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.

They were stupid cunts for doing it, does nothing but bring this sorta shite from UEFA.

We were already told our behaviour would be under scrutiny, no matter something quite innocuous as what happened.

The statement says they view it as a very minor matter, in good humour, but points out possible sanctions for the Club because of it.

I don't see much wrong with the statement.

Quick off the mark in condenming their own it seems.

Maybe they should ask Houston for help in identifying the culprits :sarcasm:

Are we reading the same statement?  I read far more praise than condemnation in it.

Too much of a coincidence between this statement and the shite that rhabid cunt CG scribed.

There is absolutely no need to bring it up. A minority, by their own account, so why even bring it up? Is it any wonder our haters take a pop, when we gift them?!

Too many in favoured positions actively working against us. Divided as ever. They'll be wanting us to vote SNPIRA next.

Indeed, though no surprise who's jumping on the band wagon.

Can't disagree mate, but why the need to warn the fans about their behaviour before the game, after 6 years away?

No other teams are warned by their Chairman before games.

It's like when ye tell a child not tae do something - he/she will do it.

If ye see where I'm coming from.

The scum would have put a totally different spin on it if it was about the and made their halo glow even more. This shows just how thick we really are, all because of these jumped up cunts with a self serving agenda.

I'm no lover of CG or the workings of club1872, but that's a ludicrous post.

Get a grip mate.

Because of exactly stuff like what's happened, we knew we were going to be under scrutiny.

Plus it was smart in the sense that the Club have done what they could to make sure anything like this didn't happen, so would help in any defence or punitive action from UEFA.

The taigs are not going to Linfield because they know their fans will disgrace their club yet again, only much worse that usual. It's fuck all to do with security, Cliftonville go all the time, plenty of Republic Teams during the Setanta Cup. They're pre-empting it.
