It really was just a matter of time. After all the furore of Rangers title rampage in Glasgow City Centre, videos of racist singing, anti Catholic rhetoric and the title party thrown by Rangers* at Ibrox where players where (we have to now say allegedly) singing sectarian songs to Sweet Caroline, the great cover up and whataboutery is in full swing.
Not long after the video of Rangers* players allegedly singing “F*CK the Pope” to the lyrics of Sweet Caroline, Police Scotland issued a statement telling the world that they would be investigating the video.
Rangers* immediately questioned the authenticity of the video and their fans claimed it was faked, even although it was streamed live at the time, it seems now that Police Scotland have concluded their investigation. Their verdict? Move along, nothing to see here!
In a single tweet, Police Scotland said, “In relation to a video circulating on social media showing Rangers players allegedly using sectarian language on Saturday 15 May, extensive enquiries have been carried out and no criminality has been established.”
Now, the video is real and strangely not fabricated like the Govan club suggests, of that there is no doubt so what were they singing?
But, and here’s the kicker, was holding a party indoors and serving alcohol, with no face masks and zero social distancing not criminality?
Clear government guidelines were broken, just like they were in March but as per usual, blind eyes were turned. Sevco do have to have the answers, it’s just a pity Police Scotland asked the wrong questions.
