Justice Secretary Humza Yousaf has fired a strong response to Rangers fans over the Ibrox celebrations on Saturday and hinted punishments could follow.

Gers supporters lined the streets of Ibrox before and after Steven Gerrard’s side dispatched St Mirren 3-0 but it has lead to widespread condemnation.

Covid restrictions mean mass gatherings are currently outlawed and Yousaf has become the latest senior figure to take aim at the scenes.


He told Clyde 1: “It’s not uncommon for action to be taken as a follow-up and that’s entirely up to Police Scotland to do.

“I’m certainly frustrated because it should not be up to Police Scotland to take enforcement action. People should know by now – must know – that the stay at home message applies and that simply is unforgivable.

“Police have been putting themselves at risk over the last year day in, day out, to keep us safe, and they should not have to be in a situation which can be completely avoidable.”


Stern response

Strong words from Yousaf and Gers fans might need to take heed to avoid being sanctioned themselves.

With the title not officially wrapped up yet there are likely to be more celebrations once title 55 is confirmed.

But it looks like government officials are hot on the trails of anyone who refuses to respect the guidelines.

We don’t want to see any Bears punished so we might just have to wait a little longer for proper celebrations.

How great the scenes will be once we’re finally allowed out to bask in all our glory.

Until that point is reached, though, we have to tread carefully, but no one wants to dampen our spirits after such a long wait.

We deserve our chance to throw a proper party to honour our heroes.

That might be a few months away but it will be well worth the wait.
