One day this week Strathclyde Police officers will have visited Lennoxtown and Murray Park and reminded players and officials the consequences their actions can have before during and after Sundays Celtic-Rangers game.
Our streets are dangerous on these weekends, best avoided, always avoided by me. You know it, I know it, people who have worked in the game for the last 40-odd years know it.
At a media conference at Ibrox today, Sandy Jardine said:
“Having gone round and met a lot of the supporters and people within the club, I think people are absolutely sick and tired of everybody having a kick at us when we’re down.
“Out of that, the supporters will take sanctions against clubs which we deem have been unfair to ourselves.
“I’m not going to go into the actual details but we will probably announce that after the meeting with the supporters clubs.
“Everybody is sick and tired of just accepting everything that everybody is throwing at us and it’s about starting to fight back.
“The size of our club and the size of our supporter base, it can be a powerful weapon.
“Everybody having a kick at us”. “Supporters will take sanctions”. “It’s about starting to fight back”.
Watch yourself at the weekend. After the game, go home and stay there. Talk about kicking and fighting three days before the game does not bode well.
