Rangers denied The Athletic’s Jordan Campbell to attend Ibrox on Sunday to cover the Gers’ 4-1 win over Dundee United in the Premiership.
Earlier this month, Campbell took to Twitter to say his “accreditation request wasn’t approved” by the Gers for the first time in a long time.
While the club told The Athletic’s Rangers correspondent that “the press box is oversubscribed”, Campbell suspected it was due to his coverage of the SFA’s child abuse report.
Writing on The Athletic website on Sunday, Campbell revealed he’d been denied access once again on Sunday.
Deafening silence continues
Rangers are yet to offer an apology to the victims and those affected by the alleged sexual offences against children in the past.
The SFA’s report, which was published earlier this month, was quite damning and named a number of clubs who’d also been investigated for historic offences.
Celtic, Hibs, Falkirk, Motherwell and Partick were also named and some of them have apologised after the SFA called for clubs to say sorry to those affected.
Rangers haven’t done anything.
Earlier this week, Times journalist Graham Spiers took aim at Gers’ managing director Stewart Robertson for the deafening silence coming from the club at the moment, urging them to stop barring journalists and start doing the right thing.
We agree with Spiers.
Forget what’s happened at every other club for one moment, read the SFA’s report and see what happened at Rangers in the past.
It’s truly sickening to read.
The club has to say sorry. It will be too late now but it’s better than nothing.
