    Well done UEFA

    Part of Ibrox closed for their match on Thursday because of racist and sectarian chanting in previous games away from home.

    Haha. Funny that the Rangers board are ‘raging’ with their supporters conduct. Maybe they should have done something about it rather than join in with the songs themselves and blame everyone else for everything.

    Cue the media moaning and bleating that it's really horrible and unfair to poor wee Rangers and how they were definitely absolutely really going to do something about it themselves this time.

    I haven't read their statement yet, but I'm sure it's something along the lines of "blah blah we think this is an affront to the Gers and also Celtic have done it loads of times and nothing happened."

    This really shows up the SFA and the SPFL for what they are. They have turned a blind eye to the constant sectarian singing from both the old and new Rangers.

    Interesting to see the board immediately accept this decision, no outrage, no statements. They know that UEFA would not take any of their nonsense.

    Strict liability - it's the only way to deal with the scourge sectarianism in Scottish football. The SFL need to have the same courage when it comes to domestic matches.

    Well done UEFA. If they do it again, ban them from European competition and see if they get the message

    Totally agree. This only time that the club did anything real about this was when UEFA did the same before. What a shower of cowards we have in this country.

    A statement from Rangers reveals they must shut off "a section, or sections containing no fewer than 3000 seats. Average £30 per ticket that’s £90,000

    So how does that work? Who complained, and how did the complainant know that the chanting was sectarian?

    I'm wondering because, we cant seem to do anything in this country, and we supposedly speak the same language.

    Its the equivalent of a dirty infirm player moving to England with an exemplary disciplinary record, and gets his first banning after about 5 games. They dont get away with it in England, and are found out for the hacker they are!

    This shows our authorities up for what they are! The collective "we" could stop it. But we dont.

    I hope the SFA/SPFL/police/ Scottish Government take notice.

    This is how to deal with sectarianism / racism.

    #Rangers message to fans: If any individual supporter is unable to behave in a civilised manner then please stay away from Ibrox and our Club. You are harming Rangers and that is something a genuine supporter would never wish to do.

    Representatives from all of the organisations listed should be asked for a statement on the UEFA action and why it cant be done here.

    Obviously it would only have a financial impact if there was demand for tickets for that section. It is more the punishment being the first part of a process for increased punishments if same behaviour continues.

    Of course it is a minority spoiling it for the rest of them

    Only two things are infinite, the universe and human stupidity, and I'm not sure about the former.

    No point complaining about the SFA and Spfl when Hibs are happy to turn a blind eye to them doing at Easter Road.

    That would leave with a couple of hundred at home games.

    It's really strange how The Rangers fans only act like that in European matches.

    Very puzzling...

    I have every faith in Petrie to be the man needed to reform the SFA and in no way see him as a dinosaur that feeds at the same trough as all the others that are a problem at the SFA 👀....

    I really like Dave King's comments.

    We've been waiting for more than a century for this sort of talk from within Ibrox.

    Credit where it's due...........

    It also shows our own authorities up for what they are when you can have people within Rangers acting like normal people off the back of a single punishment.

    A waste of time if it's only 3k seats. Only about 5% of the stadium capacity.

    Agree about King's comments bit of a shame it has taken a punishment to get him to say such things but they are welcome nonetheless. Pretty sure Murray said similar things when they were fined previously by UEFA.

    ^^Agreed.

    Fair play to Rangers this time.

    They’ve accepted it and haven’t tried to shift the blame nor mention Celtic at all.

    If it keeps happening I’d imagine more and more seats will have to be left empty.
