Michael Stewart hits back at Rangers fan on Twitter

Rangers have been hit with yet another controversy on Friday as the Heart and Hand podcast took centre stage.

According to the Daily Record, Police Scotland are investigating old tweets from the new “media partner” of the Bears.

Two of their contributors have now stepped down, and Michael Stewart has been hitting back at fans all afternoon.

The BBC pundit has been asked for Rangers to break their silence on the matter, but that is still yet to happen.

Writing on his personal Twitter account, Stewart has hit back at one fan who took offence to one of his messages.

“Sorry let me be clear,” he said.

“Senior members of Rangers ‘official media partner’ are being investigated. Not sure that makes a huge difference in the context of this debate but happy to clarify Craig.”

No defence.

Let’s be clear, there is no defence for any of these actions.

No matter when they were delivered, it is never acceptable and thankfully, they did come out and apologise.

Sometimes that isn’t enough, and that also led to Cammy Bell and Ian Hogg resigning from their posts at the outlet.

Rangers policy of banning mainstream media outlets and handing press passes to fan-based groups such as the Heart and Hand will now be questioned strongly.

There could be a storm brewing at Ibrox, and this needs to be brought to an end sooner rather than later.
