For years Rangers fans have had to endure a disciplinary process hell bent on benefiting one club and one club only, however, it looks as if things could be about to change.
The much maligned Compliance Officer role has been held by – allegedly – former Parkhead season ticket holders, and for all that it may seem a tad hypocritical of me to cast aspersions, it now looks as though the tide has turned with the appointment of Andrew Phillip – well, according to social media anyway.
With the wheels well and truly falling off the wagon in the East End, every refereeing decision, every Covid-19 test, every newspaper article has the green and white hordes screaming “conspiracy!”.
Fans of the Gers have been making the most of recent events and our return to dominance appears to have sent them into freefall, without any substantiation, the paranoia has been cracked up a notch or two with a few well positioned posts:

And we all know how Celtic fans have reacted to the rumour…..
The only people to have held the compliance officer post until now have been celtic fans & what team they support was considered irrelevant. New compliance officer is a rangers fan and……… pic.twitter.com/GgTQCk8GQs
