4 games from winning title, last 32 of Europa, Patterson and Bassey decide to go to a party. If they weren’t caught they’d have came into training with rest of squad on Monday/ Tuesday and then if it

It was last night & the rest of the squad are fine 

That's the post of a man who's just been furloughed by AVON .

Absolutely gutted for Gerrard, the amount of work the guys put in over the last three years and he’s 4 games away from everything he’s worked for and 5 fanny’s think their above the rules. 

Fortunately (again) the covid integrity of the first team squad has not been compromised, but it’s obvious how let down everyone in the Rangers family feels. The mgt team will have a lot of serious decision making to go through concerning their futures, I don’t think that Zungu will be the only one never to pull on a Rangers shirt again, but as above that’s down to Gerrard.

Im just waiting on the hypocrisy to start re baying for the SPFL to dish out  player bans, if so the club have to challenge any governance interference as none were awarded for the Dubai fiasco...

Why should their be any further action? If i go to a party and get a fine from the police I wouldn't imagine my employer would also punish me.

Many employers could and would do something if you broke rules and were fined by the police. Especially if you are damaging their brand.

I would imagine your employers would look to find a way of getting you out the door had your actions risked them losing their biggest contract in a quarter of a century, even if you had been fined by the police for your misdemeanour.

Just signed a new partnership with a bitcoin company, hasn’t really damaged the brand

If it leads to you/your employers being all over the papers as a result or it impacting your ability to perform your job, they almost certainly would punish you.

Both of those apply here. Players can't play due to having to isolate - and will also face SFA bans and it has generated adverse publicity for the club.

Me having a panic attack in a Sainsbury's uniform apparently damaged their brand (and saw me on a gross misconduct)

Aye, he fucked up but he is Tavs natural long term replacement and it would be a shame to let him go and see him develop into a great player for another club 

Would imagine his season is finished though 

On Sunday I was for flogging them and sell them because of the harm they could have done :pipe:  but I think on reflection if he shows the right attitude after this then he can still have a future with us, hopefully.

The others apart from Zungu, who was probably never going to be kept on, might fall into the same category but not sure.

There’s many employers who’ll terminate your contract if prosecuted for a crime or if you do something which doesn’t fit with their moral or ethical views.

I don't think the club reputation is the biggest factor here, though there may be some pressure to be seen to act given the circumstances. The issue as I see it is that they've defied instructions and made the manager look impotent, and Steven Gerrard does not strike me s the type to be made a fool of with impunity.

The explicit punishment may only go so far, but I wouldn't be surprised if those involved find themselves frozen out and pushed to the back of the queue for first team starts, especially those who aren't deemed a prospect.

Bizzarly, this all remind me of a wrestling incident. HHH was supposed to get a big push in the wrestling and was gonna be the next big thing. He broke character and made the wrestling look (more) stupid and so he was punished. He was taken out of the limelight and instead they gave another wrestler the chance. The other wrestler was Stone Cold Steve Austin who went on to sell more merch and tickets than any other wrestler in the history.

Moral of the story, Patterson is fucked and Dickson will be worth £100 million soon.

I doubt your company would face potential multi million pound losses if you breached covid guidelines, Rangers could have.

But in those circumstances a company has a duty of care to you and your health.

A gross misconduct for that is absolutely disgraceful.
