Rangers FC fans, the Blue Order, showed their support for the club’s anti-racism and anti-bigotry campaign at their Scottish Premiere match against Aberdeen at Ibrox. Influential members of the group held aloft cards, spelling out their desire to rid the game of this hatred.
Laurence MacIntyre, Head of Safety at Rangers’ Ibrox said:
”We were impressed by the Blue Order’s actions at the game. I certainly noticed and I hope everyone else saw the important message they displayed throughout the match, which condemned racism and bigotry.”
”The club has been particularly active in recent months discouraging racism, bigotry and other inappropriate behaviour and this support is extremely encouraging.”
FARE partner, Show Racism The Red Card helped organise the initiative. They recently appointed a development worker to tackle racism in Scottish football, paid for from UEFA’s grants to national FAs.
