Alan Rough has destroyed the alleged Rangers players for breaching COVID-19 protocols, labelling it as an “act of stupidity.”

The Athletic reported that four members of the Bears squad were caught at a gathering over the weekend, with two believed to be Nathan Patterson and Calvin Bassey.

Rough has claimed that Nicola Sturgeon could be forced into a decision that doesn’t benefit any of Scottish Football if this continues.


Speaking on PLZ Soccers’ The Football Show, Rough claimed that Sturgeon could end up getting involved more if these incidents continue to happen.

“Whoever it is, if they were guilty and given the evidence of the last two who were shown the door eventually, it will be interesting to see this time how important the players were.

“It’s just an act of stupidity, that high-profile people like that think they can get away with it.

“We just have to deal with it, move on and hope it doesn’t hinder everything else that is coming for the rest of the season because the government are making more and more decisions on what is happening in Scottish Football.

“Let’s hope we’ve not annoyed the First Minister too much.”


Sturgeon commented on the breaking news on Monday, claiming that the majority of clubs involved in football are following the rules.

The First Minister did admit it was taking everything for her to not use “expletives” when addressing the situation though, which proves how annoyed she must be getting.

There are no excuses that can be made from the Bears, who have been let down by some of their squad, no matter how experienced they are.

Steven Gerrard was fuming at Jordan Jones and George Edmundson, and he will be gobsmacked that it could have happened again.
