Alex McLeish reacts to Police Scotland investigating Rangers footage

We’re delighted to welcome former Rangers manager Alex McLeish as our exclusive columnist. Each week he’ll be giving his views on the biggest talking points at Ibrox…

Alex McLeish has fired warnings to Rangers over potential legal battles to come in the next couple of months.

Police Scotland have opened investigations over footage of the Bears title celebrations where they were flooded with accusations.

McLeish insisted that there have been plenty of warnings to be careful about what players post online, as it can be used as evidence.

Speaking exclusively to Ibrox News, McLeish said, “The officers have been policing us and saying you have to be careful what you’re on putting on the internet.

“You can be held accountable for what you say, and here were are, we are still fighting that battle and it has escalated.

“The authorities are now boycotting it because of certain things, and it’s no surprise. You have to be careful because these things can be held against you legally.” 

Warnings.

It is so easy for people to get hold of footage and change it to whatever they can find.

Rangers are finding out the hard way this week as the footage of the squad celebrating inside Ibrox has been doing the rounds with plenty of different audio.

McLeish mentioned boycotts and other ways to fight back against things like this, and it will get to the stage where players will only keep social media for their private lives.

It will be interesting to see how this one unfolds in the investigations, but Police Scotland have been looking into things far too much this season.

Something needs to change, football has to stay on the pitch.
