Rangers to demand "honesty" from SFA in Candeias debacle

Normally reliable club insider the Rangers Observer last night tweeted that Rangers are set to respond to the SFA statement on Daniel Candeias.

And it looks like the club are not ready to accept the Governing Body’s explanation of events. Read the Observer’s thread below.


The SFA had previously released a statement explaining their version of events. In it, they basically say Daniel Candeias was sent off for blowing kisses at Anton Ferdinand after Morelos’ goal against St. Mirren.

Rangers, at least according to the Observer, don’t agree.

They think this has all come about through video evidence and that Collum didn’t see this in the match. Nor did his assistants.

They stressed the club are not accusing Collum of bias. rather, any complaint is because he frequently makes terrible errors of judgement. The Rangers Observer has said the club just want “honesty”.

The Observer then goes on to say that any SFA Compliance Officer threats of action unless Rangers keep quiet has also merely inflamed in the situation. “Particularly as several senior SFA figures have admitted Collum got it wrong”.

Whatever you make of it, it certainly looks like the club aren’t letting this one lie.

Time for SFA to swallow pride

With that statement yesterday, the SFA seemed to just dig themselves a hole. All Rangers want is honesty.

Daniel Candeias should never have been sent off. It’s that simple. Swallow your pride and rescind the red card. The fact Rangers demolished Motherwell 7-1 in the game Candeias was banned for is irrelevant.

The Rangers Observer’s Twitter bio reads “Bringing accurate and reliable news on Rangers as well as informed debate and views.”

So it certainly looks like Rangers are going to take it to the SFA.

Do you think it’s the right decision by the club? Or at this point should we just let sleeping dogs lie?
