Rangers have confirmed that the club is investigating an “alleged incident” after players were thought to have been at a party where 10 penalty notices were noticed – and Gers fans have absolutely zero tolerance of the latest apparent acts of stupidity.
The club released a statement last night after hours of rumours on social media, confirming they were aware of the allegations and would be carrying out an internal investigation.

The incident is understood to involve at least four Rangers players – two first-team players and two Academy youngsters – after Police Scotland confirmed they had attended an address in Glasgow in the early hours of Sunday morning, saying: “We received reports of a gathering at a property in Hayburn Lane, Glasgow at 1.10am on Sunday 14th February.” [Sky Sports]
“Officers attended and those in attendance left. 10 people were issued with fixed penalty notices for breaching coronavirus regulations.”
After going through similar with George Edmundson and Jordan Jones at the end of 2020, the Gers support have no sympathy for any players breaking the rules and want the club to through the book at the players involved.
Here are some of the comments from Rangers fans on Twitter:
4 players this season putting our biggest title in our history at risk.
I wouldn't give them league medals.
And free transfer them out the club.

Lets trust the club and management to deal with this if true. They haven't put a foot wrong all season and dealt with it properly before.

If rumours are true, they need to be shown the door. Jeopardising things just as we are about to win the league. Unforgivable.

If the rumours are true, then those involved cannot be part of the squad again.
The precedent was set with Jordan Jones and George Edmundson. https://t.co/jyoGHLMXQ4

If the rumours are true then I'd expect the players to suffer the same consequences as Jones and Edmondson https://t.co/q7npl865y9

Absolutely stupid two young players that Gerrard has put his faith and trust in this season all thrown down the drain, they know the rules and they are on the brink of winning a league title not acceptable if true https://t.co/QzUmm3UjZi

To be a Ranger is to sense the sacred trust of upholding all that such a name means in this shrine of football.
