John Needham slammed by charity for Rangers comments

St Mirren’s charity partners Kibble have slated John Needham as the controversy over his Rangers tweets deepens.

The Saints’ chairman allegedly called Gers fans an offensive term and now a group directly connected to St Mirren have slammed the Buddies chief.

Needham has apologised for his comments but it seems as if that isn’t enough for Kibble who are furious.

They said [via Football Scotland]: “We wish to completely disassociate ourselves from these very ill-considered and unacceptable comments.

“These views were made known to St Mirren board members over the weekend.”

Needham in trouble.

At the end of the day calling Gers fans what he allegedly did is unacceptable and we totally agree with this statement from Kibble who are keen to move as far away from these comments as possible.

If a fan of another club had said something like this then they would have faced some strong punishment, so we will have to see what happens to Needham.

The SFA have launched an investigation, so it will be intriguing to see what comes from that.

Comments like these have no place in the modern day and we will have to see what the fallout will be.

Already, it doesn’t like it is good for St Mirren with Kibble publicly calling these comments out.

So, now we just have to wait and see what the SFA decide and then we will need to see what happens to Needham who should regret saying these comments.

In other Rangers news, the Scottish Government have defended their decision surrounding the Gers.
