Graham Spiers has once again slammed theRangers Managing Director, Stewart Robertson on twitter.
With the recent ban of ex-Celtic pundits from Edminston Drive, in addition to the preposterous extortion of the free press for access to their players and manager, theRangers are slowly but surely hanging themselves with their own rope.
Spiers, a self-confessed fan of the Ibrox clubs, savaged Robertson for their ludicrous policy of banning commentators and writers who did not comply with the club’s ‘succulent lamb’ policy.
Football is about debate, opinion and laughs. Ive always had total respect for Ally McCoist and what we do every Friday is what most fans do. Back and forth, bicker and LAUGH. Dangerous precedent set by Rangers. It seems to be if they don’t like what you say you don’t get in…👇 pic.twitter.com/3jeZ9Tg4YO

The journalist even quoted ex-player and legend, Ally McCoist, showing his bemusement at the current situation. This all after yet another shameful show of deliquency by their fans, spray painting their Europa League rivals bus with obscenities prior to their match on Thursday evening. Read below Spiers thoughts on the whole shameful affair…
I’ve said for some time that Rangers MD Stewart Robertson’s prodigious appetite for banning writers and commentators has become quite a farce.

“As a (Rangers) supporter all through my childhood I’m actually embarrassed by what’s going on,” Bruce MacGregor stated. Spiers replied: “There is a stack of decent Rangers fans who are embarrassed by it Bruce. It just looks absurd. I met Stewart Robertson when he banned me, a decent guy but very keen to placate the hardcore. I found him a slightly pathetic figure.
“He has felt insecure in his job from day one. He thinks banning reporters – as much as he knows it is embarrassing – will please the so-called “hardcore”, those fans harbouring various anti-Rangers conspiracies. And he’s right – it does!” Spiers added.
“Who is advising him, Graham? Or who is driving this?,” David Begg. The answer is probably the latest Ibrox club’s official media partners…
