Rangers SFA statement receives big backlash from supporters

Rangers have issued a statement regarding Kemar Roofe’s recent SFA charge and suspension, but many fans have been left unsatisfied.

The club previously spoke out about the SFA’s inconsistencies when it comes to retroactive punishment.

Earlier this month Steven Gerrard said he accepted Alfredo Morelos’ suspension, but said he and the directors were trying “to find a way to move forward and improve the system”.

Roofe, like Morelos, has been suspended following a review by the SFA, despite picking up a yellow card for his challenge against St. Johnstone – which means the referee saw it.

The club focused on that incident being cited despite having already been covered by officials.

The statement shows Rangers are less than satisfied with the actions of the SFA, but for many supporters they have not gone far enough.

Some feel the Roofe incident is just the latest example of bias taken against their club.

For example, the SFA failed to investigate a bad challenge on Glenn Kamara by Hibs defender Darren McGregor in our recent clash.

Only Morelos was punished after that match, which highlights the inconsistencies.

The club being outspoken against such poor decision-making is perhaps the only way we will see things balanced out.

As a result, we hope for a more assertive statement on the matter in the coming days.

Here is how Gers fans have reacted to the club’s official statement.
