Rangers fans have hit back at Scottish First Minister Nicola Sturgeon over her comments about the alleged breach of COVID-19 protocol by some Gers players.

As reported by The Athletic, “at least four Rangers players are the subject of an internal investigation” after it was alleged they attended a party which broke national COVID rules.

Calvin Bassey and Nathan Patterson are the only two players mentioned in Jordan Campbell’s report.

Sturgeon has since responded to the news and Clyde SSB shared some of her quoted on their official Twitter account on Monday.

She said: “It’s really unfair to the vast majority of people in the country that don’t have the privileges that elite sports people have right now.”

She’s right. Footballers are allowed to get on with their jobs as normal as normal is at the moment. They still get to travel around, get out the house, see different parts of the country and the continent, be with their team-mates and so on.

We cannot condone any of the four players for what they have alleged to have done. It simply isn’t right.

Rangers fans are for some reason hitting back at Sturgeon for her response.

Some are unhappy that she’s commenting when nothing has been made official but Rangers have already confirmed they are investigating and the SNP leader does say: “I’ve not been given all the details of the Rangers incident yet, no doubt that will happen when the details are clearer – I know the club are investigating.” It’s not as though she’s completely tearing into the club or the players.

Still, some fans don’t want to hear a bad word said about their clubs and here is a selection of their tweets:
