Thanks to the Scottish Government, Rangers are stuck between a rock and a hard place on the subject of Covid-19 vaccination passports.
Unfortunately, there isn’t much the club can do and the statement on Monday was about as much as it could offer, that this information is being released just a few days before action is being taken says it all about the shambolic way in which the initiative has been handled by the Holyrood administration.
Supporter Information: Vaccine Certificate
— Rangers Football Club (@RangersFC) September 27, 2021
There are still questions that need to be answered though, for example, what happens to a season ticket holder that hasn’t had both vaccinations?
It simply isn’t fair to force individuals to get vaccinated just to go about their normal life, we all know the risks, if that is their choice, then so be it.
Rangers fans are rightly fuming about the news and, unfortunately, there isn’t much that the club can do, however it has still been getting it in the neck when perhaps the frustrations should be aimed elsewhere.
Absolute joke that this is forced on us. Understand the club are only following orders though.

Very good 😂😂 so will you refund season ticket holders who aren’t fully vaccinated? It is personal choices whether to get it or not after all.

So you can get turned away by someone that works there that doesn’t need a vaccine certificate, for you not having one? Makes sense

Utterly embarrassing. And what do you plan to do for the supporters that have paid for the season tickets and europa packages etc that aren’t vaccinated?

Absolute joke I’m vaccinated but this is poor discrimination against people having a choice not as if the vaccines stops transmission it’s been proved but he ho government at its finest

Are there any Covid clauses in regards to our season tickets and Europa league games ? Will those not allowed to attend home games be refunded by the club ? Will you continue to take money for tickets on CCCS before checking with me if I have my Covid certificate 🤷

The thread itself is hugely disappointing, fans arguing amongst themselves when there really is no need to, the government’s own guidance gives details about exemptions and how being asked to provide proof of exemption is against the law, in short, there shouldn’t be anyone missing out, regardless of whether or not they are fully vaccinated – an absolute shambles from start to finish and a needless waste of money.
