Ibrox fans are being urged to seek refunds from Bronby, the club who they played on Thursday, after many of their supporters went, ticketless, to Copenhagen … and bought tickets for the wrong game.
In a classic example of “I Blame The Schools” they purchased tickets for Bronby vs Randers, one of the Danish club’s domestic football rivals.
I’m not making this up! You couldn’t make this up. These are the thickest supporters in football.
Only they could make a mistake like this.
A report in Football Scotland says that the Danish side has actually offered these cretins their money back … but I think that actually lets them off, and results in a missed opportunity.
The burned hand teaches best, and if these clowns had been told that it was just their hard lines they might actually learn something.
In the meantime, the fallout continues, with the Scottish press refusing to acknowledge that it takes two sides to have a fight. The focus of the media here is on the poor innocent victims in the Sevco support who were allegedly the targets of yet more over the top policing.
Funny that this always happens to them. Other Scottish clubs don’t get this.
Bronby at least, as a club, has accepted that it has a bad element amongst its supporters and is vowing to do something about it.
The Ibrox travelling support will never reform because no-one ever makes a serious effort to make them confront their nasty element, and that gives that nasty element free reign to do as they please.
Not only are they “a permanent embarrassment and an occasional disgrace”- to use the words Ian Archer used about them in the context of their former club – but they are now giving the Scottish education system a bad name by implying that we come from a national of illiterates who can’t even read the name of their own football team on a match ticket.
And to think some folk worry that this lot will end up running an independent Scotland …
