Rangers have made a huge splash in Scotland after the SFA confirmed that the club have appealed the suspensions given to the COVID rule-breakers.

On Tuesday the governing body dished out six-game bans to the Gers quintet who breached Covid-19 protocols in February, and the drawn-out process appeared to have finally reached a conclusion.

But events took another turn on Friday evening when the SFA announced on their official website that the Light Blues hierarchy had appealed the bans issued to first-team trio Nathan Patterson, Bongani Zungu and Calvin Bassey, and to academy stars Dapo Mebude and Brian Kinnear.

It’s a decision that is likely to cause a commotion among rival fanbases who will no doubt pick apart such a contentious decision in these trying times.

The Gers, however, must feel that the verdict is too severe and can at the very least be reduced.

While the overall ban handed out was a total of six games only four were to be served immediately, with the other two suspended until the end of the season.

There has been no word as yet on when a new hearing will be set for but time is running out with the season set to conclude next month.

What this does mean, though, is that the first-team trio should be available to face Cove Rangers in Scottish Cup action on Sunday.

At Ibrox News, we asked our panel of Super Fans for their take on the club’s decision to strike back at the SFA.
