Rangers fans deserve every credit for the way that they’ve embraced a culture change at the club concerning unacceptable behaviour.
It’s a hugely encouraging time for the club on and off the field and every single Rangers supporter is responsible for ensuring that this continues.
And yet, Rangers fans have been reacting with great anger today at a banner some “supporters” brought to Holland for the match with Feyenoord.
Despite repeated calls from the club for unruly supporters to curb their behaviour, particularly in Europe, some fans just do not get it.
It is beginning to really grate on the rest of the Rangers support, who suffer as a result of this absolute idiocy.
Springburn now to blame for more than just producing me. Honestly, so, stupid. Some people need to get a grip. https://t.co/QCX6HqZgoV

Depressing Jordan. We have so many trying to build the club up and idiots like this bring it back down. I was saying this morning they obviously don’t care about the club one bit.

Genuinely hope they are stopped from entering the stadium with that by reps from either club. Complete idiocy…

Club is doing so well and so much to be positive about. Why these morons think that flag is ok is nuts. Media all over it and club dragged down again. What is the point honestly.

Should be found and banned by the club. Utter morons who could land the club in bother.

Utter idiocy. I'm genuinely speechless

Rangers is precious to me and if any fans are considering taking flags or singing songs they know FARE will report to UEFA please don’t Go and support our club loud and proud

Seen two folk block me over that flag tweet ahahahhaha, if you’re wanting rangers heavily fined AGAIN and a full stadium closure then you do you sweetheart.

Just seen that Rangers flag that’s doing the rounds. What an own goal. Don’t understand it one bit tbh. Club has already been reprimanded this season with a part stadium closure etc. It’s just giving others more ammunition to fire at us. Madness.

I hate to criticise fellow supporters but after all that's happened to us regarding UEFA, how stupid can you be, unfurling a flag with a word that could see us getting into serious trouble and posting it on social media. Mental.

There is a vein of thought amongst some fans who believe that their support of Rangers is measured by this ridiculous behaviour.
It is wild hypocrisy, literally going against the pleas of a club they claim to love.
They’re also going against the pleas of a manager who they claim to support, who has put his own reputation on the line to answer questions on this stuff far too often for anyone’s liking.
It appears that for some people getting one up on Celtic, or anything historically attached to Celtic, is more important than preserving the image and future of Rangers.
This kind of thing achieves nothing. It potentially damages the club financially, absolutely does reputationally, and makes us all look like idiots. Each and every one of us.
Whether it’s going into the stadium or not, why even get the thing made in the first place?
The majority of Rangers fans on Twitter who’ve discussed the subject have berated the banner and are a credit to the Ibrox club.
If the flag is unfurled at the match with Feyenoord, the club will be sanctioned and the likelihood is one of Rangers’ next European matches at Ibrox will be played behind closed doors.
Is it really worth it for one big, overplayed “get it up ye” to our rivals?
