Graham Spiers takes fresh swipe at Rangers & Stewart Robertson

Rangers have yet again hit the headlines for all the wrong reasons this week with another controversy.

Chris Sutton and Neil Lennon were banned from Ibrox on Thursday for Europa League coverage, with Stewart Robertson citing security reasons.

Ally McCoist hit back at those claims, and now Graham Spiers has followed that up with another swipe at the Bears chief.

Spiers has been vocal in blasting Robertson and Rangers, labelling this latest controversy as a “farce” at Ibrox.

Writing on his personal Twitter account, the journalist mentioned McCoist’s rant and compared it to the Soviets.

“I’ve said for some time that Rangers MD Stewart Robertson’s prodigious appetite for banning writers and commentators has become quite a farce,” he wrote.

“Ally McCoist: “We are going down a dangerous route…we turn into Beijing, we turn into Moscow.” Are we back in 1951 with the Soviets?”


It is becoming more than a farce at this rate, with something new coming out and affecting the club negatively every single week.

First it was the banning of media and adding the Heart and Hand as our official partner, that hasn’t exactly worked out how it was hoped.

Add to that, Lennon and Sutton being banned and it is getting worst with each passing day, with others simply watching and laughing.

McCoist speaking out and condemning the club that he loves speaks volumes and only brings to light how embarrassing this really is becoming.

Things need to change, and Robertson appears to be the one taking the brunt of the decisions and reactions on his head.
