Rangers won their 55th Scottish Premiership title this year and finally lifted the trophy last weekend with an excellent job former Liverpool captain Steven Gerrard has done as Rangers manager. One of the more disappointing aspects of the celebrations has been a video released on social media of players using ‘sectarian language’ Scottish police are set to investigate this further.

We are aware of a video circulating on social media apparently showing Rangers players using sectarian language while celebrating on Saturday. We are assessing its contents and will liaise with the Crown Office and Procurator Fiscal Service as part of our enquiries.

Its definitely real and it's definite they're singing FTP.
It was taken from a live broadcast Tik Tok apparently.
It was taken by a Rangers* employee so the original exists. If it proved there was no sectarian add ons then they would have it playing on loop on every media outlet

Rangers are also saying the video of the sectarian singing by their players is fake. They know 100% if it is real or fake. If they are found to have been untruthful re the video they should be removed from the league.

This is not a good look for the Glasgow club and one that their manager Steven Gerrard will be disappointed with. Next years SPL should be very interesting with Eddie Howe at the Helm of Rangers rivals Celtic.
