There has been a lot said about the Ryan Porteous tackle at Ibrox that resulted in 10 man Hibs surrendering a 1-0 lead over Rangers after the referee gave the Ibrox club a helping hand to pass Go and collect all three points on their way the monopoly of the Champions League.
But as all the chat from the Rangers supporters was ‘definite red’, ‘dangerous play’ and all the other googled rulebook screenshots from them as they pretend to know the laws of the game, *Rangers gaffer Steven Gerrard also had plenty to say about it in the media, ““I know one or two things about bad tackles because I have made a few myself, so I am not in a glass house here.
“It’s a wild tackle. It’s a leg-breaking tackle if he catches him.
“The kid only has to play the ball. I don’t know why there is any reason that he wants to go in with that intent and it is the second time that he has done it against us, because he did it against Lassana Coulibaly not so long ago.
“So the kid is obviously not learning and he has let his manager and his team-mates down today.“
But a video emerged today of Rangers player John Lundstram where he appears to make a two footed lunge at a Hibs player as he broke into the Ibrox clubs half in an attacking move:
So, was this challenge wild, reckless and out of control? Seems so. Was the *Rangers player sent off or even cautioned? Clearly not. Is it any wonder people believe the Govan club seem to get preferred treatment from Scotland’s officials? Absolutely.
No word on the from Mr Gerrard anyone? Hello?
