Racism and Abdul

Steve Gerrad says that more needs to be done about racist abuse after a Rangers player is booed in.their Europa League match.Agreed

On the other hand he should look closer to home when supporters of his club encourage chants like

Id rather be a p**** than a T**

The odd thing about it is the confused person leading it being Asian himself.
Doesn't he realize this is also racist.

What are your opinions on this guy.
He does tend to ask for it hence being dumped in the waterinLondon

I seem to recall some offensive insults were aimed at Abdul as he was thrown into the fountain (like I said earlier, he seems to be a 'vulnerable' person).

There's tbbab implying that people are racist for having, in his words, 'political' views.

I'm away for the night. We'll never move forward as long as we have that level of thinking going on.

As for ten in a row and 55 which he has referenced.

55 is nothing. Just a load of garbage made up by Rangers and it took them about a decade to achieve it.

This season is much more Important.

As for the 10...I would have liked it but I'm not distraught. I didn't particularly want Lennon and Broon to overtake Stein and McNeill so I'm coping fine

What? Lol

Not sure where to go with the opening sentence regarding my "implied" racism and politics linkage, but the abuse Lenny got and Famine Song have been described as anti-Irish racism, sectarian and a political hate crime for example.

When Scottish (and Irish celtic fans) abuse and attack Kyle Lafferty, who lives in NI like Lenny, I assume that
Is also racist, sectarian and political?

Some celtic fans abuse people based on where they are from, skin tone, religion, political affiliation, ethnicity, colour of fitba top etc, so forms of racism, xenophobia, sectarianism and political tribalism are no strangers to some bhoys, or fans of Rangers.

As for the 55 and stopping ten in a row, mags reaction is pleasing.

On the subject of racism, the United manager held up a show racism the red card t-shirt towards the Ross County fans after Fuchs was allegedly racially abused at the game.

I honestly can't fathom why people would do it.

Was only a T-shirt mate

Rangers rightly called out another racist abuse scenario involving a light blue player, but rather than unite against racism, a few are stirring it using, "What about Rangers racism"?

Rangers fc and fans condemn racists in light blue attacking guys for their skin colour ..end of.

Fairly emphatic statement from Ross County about the alleged racist comment. For all that I back Courts’ stance, he should apologise to the County fans.

DU seem to think they have evidence backing up the allegation of racism.
