Rangers captain James Tavernier has blasted the lack of security after he was attacked by a Hibs fan at Easter Road during Friday night’s 1-1 draw at Easter Road.
The incident is the latest in a string involving Hibs fans in recent weeks after Scott Sinclair had a bottle thrown at him and Hearts goalkeeper Bobby Zlamal was punched at Tynecastle.
“Every time I have played at Easter Road, that stand is normally the rowdy bit where their fans are saying stuff,”
“First and foremost, no fans should be allowed on the pitch. That is down to the security. It shouldn’t happen.
“No player should be targeted by fans going on the pitch or having coins thrown at them. We had an incident a few years ago where they raided Hampden. These things shouldn’t happen.”
With the recent rise of unacceptable behaviour at games recently, there’s going to need to be action taken to stop it happening in future.
There’s no reason for fans to be confronting players or throwing anything at them and unless it stops there’s a real possibility of the Scottish government stepping in.
