Rangers have released a statement blasting the Scottish FA over their decision to charge Steven Gerrard for comments made after the Dundee United win – and Gers fans on Twitter are understandably furious.

The Gers boss has been summoned to appear before the disciplinary committee on October 8 for his comment on Ryan Edwards’ horror challenge on Alfredo Morelos that left the striker needing several stitches above his knee.

The club haven’t held back with their statement, calling it a “flawed and inaccurate interpretation” of the manager’s comments as they gave him their full support.

Speaking after Morelos had to be stretchered off, Gerrard said: “I don’t want to make any headlines and say the kid should have got this, or should have got that. I don’t want to be that type of manager.

“But what I would say is I’d be very interested to see what the decision would have been from the officials if the shoe was on the other foot and it was Alfredo who’s made that tackle.”

Gerrard’s charge is the latest in a line of incidents stemming from Kevin Clancy’s involvement in Gers games. Gerrard and Michael Beale have both been charged before for comments made over his officiating.
