Imagine some Rangers supporters saying you are not a Rangers supporter because of a Political belief ?

It was the bold Lord McConnell who kicked off the whole focus on football fans that we're seeing now. McConnell took it from being something that didn't really have any real influence on day-to-day life to being something that we see mentioned in parliament on a monthly basis.

Probably guided by his wife.

I am sorry but you cannot support Rangers and the SNP  who by the way do not have one MP or Scottish member of parliament who supports Rangers not a single one  think about that not one in a country of 5m of which at least 1.5 m support Rangers and where the RCs make up less than 900k that is an incredible fact  

I'm in full agreement with you, it was that dick Angus I was addressing.

I have a mate who professes to be a Rangers supporter yet being an Indy/SNP supporter he quite happily calls the Union Flag the butcher’s apron, I can’t get my head round this, to hate Tories fine but to hate everything our club stands for while saying you support them doesn’t make sense.

There was s thread going forward on Fb which described the Union Flag as sectarian. The context was because Rangers allow it to be flown at Ibrox proves they have no intention to fight sectarianism. There were Rangers supporters on the thread agreeing with this.

I remember his rhetoric well. A definite fire starter.

 I don't believe anti rangersness is an SNP policy but there are quite a number of zoomers in its ranks for whom it is and that is a very good reason to fight them.

I fundamentally disagree with this- I believe it is completely calculated and deliberate. Prior to 2014 most opinion polls showed roughly 30% of Scots were strongly in favour of retaining the status quo (ie the Union), around 30% were strongly in favour of Independence, and the remaining 40% were almost indifferent, but if they did vote, they were likely to vote for what they knew- mainly the status quo. As we have seen on many elections since- primarily the last two US presidential elections and the Brexit vote, both sides of the indy debate deployed very negative tactics. To convince the 40% to vote for indy, the SNP decided to show what bad people  those voting No were. They needed a ‘demon’ to rally against. They calculated that there were little gains to be had form either the majority of Rangers supporters or indeed the OO, so they made them the baddies. The simple message being, if you vote no, you are like these sectarian, racists, terrible people. To a certain extent it worked- they made massive gains from traditional (mainly catholic) labour voters, but also gains from more conservative (with a small c) traditional Protestants who both believed the propaganda  and  didn’t want to be associated with what was being portrayed.

Why do  idiots keep bringing religion into it?

Stupid auld farts that are accusing others of being stuck in dark ages when just about every Rangers fan I know has moved on from the religious stuff. Cunts should take a closer look at their selfs and where their mindsets stuck at

It's mental that a lot of SNP MPs would be so open about their hatred for Rangers and its supporters when they should be attempting to win votes in order to fulfill their ambitions of independence.

I voted for independence in 2014. But I would absolutely not be on board with proceeding to an independent Scotland under the control of the SNP. The party is filled with absolute roasters.

Maybe you're right, but this is important. I see so many folk on here who are outraged by sectarianism but call other supporters scum. They point to the failings of Scotland and its political parties but couldn't care less about the incompetent horror that politics and political opinion is South of the border. They are wedded to a notion of the Union as of its glory wasn't built on slavery, cruelty and exceptionalism. I live the union, but it needs radically reformed. For me Rangers is steeped in tradition, my tradition, but that tradition is not without its blemishes. I want Rangers to be a football club first and foremost. Its supporters can be everyone and anyone. Some good, some not so good. Our values are not that protestantism is superior. Who amongst us believes in God? It is about the values of equality, equity, fraternity, kindness and winning on a football pitch.

What a fucking clownshoe.

Try standing in front of some actual Rangers fans and spouting  this pish and see what happens.
