Rangers launch Chris McKee investigation after alleged homophobic abuse - Sky Sports

Rangers have launched a new investigation after yet another incident, this time including loaned out talent Chris McKee.

Currently on loan at Brechin, the 19-year-old was sent off for allegedly using homophobic language in a play-off final defeat.

Sky Sports have shared the major update on their website, with Brechin manager Michael Paton insisting it was just a passing claim in a confrontation with the officials.

An Ibrox spokesperson has shared a statement, claiming that the Bears as a club do not tolerate any discrimination from anyone involved.

“Rangers are aware of an incident involving one of our on-loan academy players during a match this afternoon,” they said.

“We will investigate this incident thoroughly and it will be treated with the utmost seriousness. As a club, we oppose all forms of discrimination. We will handle this incident robustly.”


If true, the book has to be thrown at McKee, who should know better no matter how young he actually is while away from the club.

We have seen this before this season though, with Michael Gardyne being accused of the same during our clash with Ross County, and he was ultimately cleared.

This is different though, with the officials clearly hearing something, that was even possibly directed at them, meaning there is clear evidence in their reports after the game.

McKee could be in real trouble, here.

There won’t be much of a defence if that is the case, and he may just have to accept a significant ban at the start of next season.

If that is the case, then we may be waving goodbye to a young talent over the summer.
