There are plenty of Rangers fans who are not in a forgiving mood after Rangers had to contact the Scottish Sun over a shocking headline.
The Rangers SLO confirmed that the club had contacted the Scottish Sun directly over the headline which was subsequently changed on its website.
However, there are lots of fans calling for more sanctions and a few calling for a ban on the paper and its journalists from Ibrox and Auchenhowie.
The club have raised this directly with The Sun. I will update when I know more. https://t.co/RmDkQzHcD4

Andy Devlin wrote the piece and some Gers fans have called for a ban for him but we should say that journalists rarely do their own headlines online.
This is more likely to be someone internal at the paper and it’s the editor that would take responsibility for the content published in the site.
While the headline has been changed we would like to see an apology and Rangers SLO Greg Marshall has promised an update.
Meanwhile, the feeling among a big part of the Rangers fanbase is strong, as you can see from the reactions to Marshall’s tweet.
Sentiments range from anger to calls to action, and commendations to the club on acting so quickly and sticking up for itself…
It should be the club that are publicly condemning it tho. Ban the journalist and ban the paper unless significant apology is made

I hope you don't accept the usual apology…. demand both the journo and Editor are charge with sectarianism and demand they be sacked!!!
We've had this problem with all the media in Scotland, badmouthing,slaging making fun of… then a meaningless apology!!

Whoever is responsible for that headline should be sacked. The fact the it's perhaps to be expected from a downmarket rag like the Sun is not an excuse. It's an unacceptable slur. Enough is enough.

It’s beyond belief that a media outlet (even THIS outlet) allowed this to be published.
Well done to the club for quick actions.
