Old Firm game marred by racism allegations as Gers fan makes ‘monkey gesture’ at Scott Sinclair

Football fans have expressed their shock and disbelief after a Rangers fan was seen to be making racist gestures towards a Celtic player 
at Ibrox today. Those watching the Old Firm game on TV have been quick to condemn images of the man in the Rangers stands making 
monkey gestures aimed Celtic winger Scott Sinclair. The gesture was made immediately after Sinclair scored the opener.

As the team celebrated on the pitch, images appeared of the man appearing to make the shocking gesture just behind the player.
Twitter users have taken to the social media site in their droves, with one man even referring to the incident as “Scotland’s shame.”
“I hope that Rangers fan is happy with his monkey actions towards Sinclair,” said one. Another joined several other fans to contact 
Police Scotland to complain. He sent a message which read: “@policescotland would like to complain about guy in white tshirt making 
monkey signs at Sinclair after penalty on skysports 1.”

Cops are currently investigating the incident.

Rangers on verge of naming new boss as Ibrox MD Stewart Robertson reveals search down to “a few outstanding candidates”

STEWART Robertson, the Rangers managing director, has revealed the Ibrox club has narrowed their search for a new manager down to “a few outstanding candidates” and were “very close” to making an appointment.

The Ladbrokes Premiership club have been without a manager since Mark Warburton departed 19 days ago and have lost their last two league games against Dundee and Inverness Caledonian Thistle.

The Rangers directors, who have made under-20 coach Graeme Murty, have come in for criticism in the media and even from their own supporters for their failure to bring in a permanent replacement for Warburton.

But in his programme notes for the Premiership game against St. Johnstone at Ibrox tonight, Robertson has stressed they have been “forensic” in their search for a director of football and manager in an attempt to get the appointment right.

“There is no confusion or turmoil inside Rangers,” he said. “There has always been a clarity of purpose.

“A management team resigned and is about to be replaced after an intense and detailed process, which was absolutely necessary given the lack of progress on the playing front so far this season.

“We simply could not be hurried into making appointments which might not have been correct for the club’s long term development.

NOW YOU KNOW: Jimmy Millar was Rangers hero in 1964
Scottish Cup Final win over Dundee.

RANGERS have won many domestic trophies over the years, with a world record 54 league title wins. They have also had seven treble-winning seasons in 1948-49, 1963-64, 1975-76, 1977-78, 1992-93, 1998-99 and 2002-03…

R. WILLIAMSON (Govan) As a young boy I was taken to my first Scottish Cup Final in 1964 when Rangers beat Dundee 3-1. Could you give me the goalscorers and did Rangers become treble-winners after their win against Dundee?

Rangers goals came from Jimmy Millar (2) and Ralph Brand. Dundee’s goal came from Kenny Cameron. Rangers did indeed win the treble during the 1963-64 season.
