Rangers fans have been reacting on Twitter after the SPFL hit Kilmarnock and St Mirren with heavy sanctions for breaking coronavirus protocols.

In a statement on the SPFL website, it was confirmed that Motherwell will be awarded with 3-0 victories against both Killie and St Mirren while Hamilton have also been handed a 3-0 win versus the Buddies.

All three matches had to be postponed due to positive COVID-19 tests at both Kilmarnock and St Mirren.

Both Scottish Premiership sides “admitted a number of breaches of the SPFL’s Covid-19 Regulations”

The SPFL confirm the breaches, by both clubs, were “the seating arrangements on the coach and at the pre-match meal”.

Rangers fans, as have fans from across Scotland, have been reacting in their droves to the news that leaves Motherwell shooting up the Scottish Premiership table, Kilmarnock’s bid for a top-half finish take a hit and St Mirren’s survival hopes take a major blow.

Most Gers supporters have hit out at the SPFL for the punishment, with one saying that the reaction by the organisation is “ridiculous“.

Another suggested that Celtic should have been punished in some way as one of their games was postponed earlier in the season when Boli Bolingoli jetted out to Spain, failed to quarantine, then played in a match.

Here is a selection of their tweets:

Let’s not point fingers at Celtic here because in case you have forgotten, two of our players are suspended right now due to breaking COVID-19 protocols.

Jordan Jones and George Edmundson could have landed Rangers in serious trouble if the Gers didn’t notice they had attended an indoor gathering last month.

Kilmarnock’s and St Mirren’s punishment should serve as a major reminder to every club and player in this league that there are serious consequences for anyone who breaks the rules.

In other Rangers news, the Gers’ bid to re-sign this player could be back on in January.
