A number of fans of Scottish football have thrown their literal, not even their proverbial toys out of the pram following the Scottish Football Association’s decision to charge Kilmarnock boss Steve Clarke for something he said surrounding Gary Dicker’s ban.
Clarke laid out his criticism quite clearly to the sending off of his player during their loss last month to Hearts and he went as far as criticising the disciplinary panel as they waved away their appeal.
What he said or didn’t say is actually irrelevant, when something goes wrong in Scotland it has to be Rangers’ fault, so manager Steven Gerrard has now come in for criticism from said fans as he can obviously get away with anything being a Ger.
Cue squeals of double standards and myopic rewriting of relevant history to explain away decisions that don’t sit well with others.
After they inept sfa decision yesterday to today’s inept decision to charge steve clarke utterly shambolic tomorrow might be Aberdeen boss it certainly wont be steve gerrard the man can do no wrong sitting in 7th position

Why would we moan about it, they don’t manage our team? I can guarantee they wouldn’t be agreeing with the SFA Though

Steve Clarke GUILTY of not being Steven Gerrard

@ScottishFA You are not even trying to hide your contempt for all other clubs other than Sevco.
Morelos & McGregor spring to mind plus Gerrard’s & Jack’s comments about refereeing yet you fail to exonerate Devlin & Dicker while citing Steve Clarke..
We need change & you out

@ScottishFA have the audacity to charge Steve Clarke, @KilmarnockFC manager over comments made about referee Willie Collum and his performance in sending off a Killie player. like Morelos incident, @ScottishFA have set a precedent by not charging Steven Gerrard for same issues Ha

When are we gonna finish with these corrupt SFA bassa's – the games a bogie !!
Someone has to stand up & as the biggest club in Scotland, Celtic have to take the lead.
This is just sheer cowardice!!
Or a cabal that prioritises money over fair play !! (Celtic included)

Did Ryan Jack not call for the ref to be demoted after Celtic game, or did I imagine that. They are not even trying to pretend now that there is one set of rules for Ibrox, another for every other team.

Strike, boycott, demo what ever but all the clubs and fans need to take some sort action. It’s beyond a joke now. It’s like the worst kid in the class being the teachers pet yet everyone else gets punished

Faux outrage is clearly the thing for 2018, I find it a little bit humorous. We’ve got a while to go clearly, so why’s everyone panicking.
