A fan site slams the ‘stinking SNP hypocrisy showing anti-Rangers agenda’ after what happened on Thursday prior to the Euros game in London.
Over 22,000 Scots took to the England capital ready for the Euro 2020 clash, and footage right from the plane until the early hours of Friday morning went very viral.
Now while majority was in good taste, including the likes of fans doing the conga, having a laugh in bars and parks while also chanting.
However we can’t ignore some that offended members of the public, getting naked on the London Underground and/or messing around to the point that police had to play a part in calming the situation down.
And because of such actions, some Rangers fans have been angered that the SNP have chosen to suddenly fall silent on some of the antics leaving a sour taste with many.

Ibrox News gave a passionate response on it all via their site, it stated: Remember the ridiculous outpouring of anger when Rangers fans took to the streets of Glasgow to celebrate their title success?
Remember when Scottish Justice Secretary Humza Yousaf called Gers fans “selfish” and “irresponsible” [Herald] for gathering in jubilation after Steven Gerrard led the Light Blues to their 55th title without suffering a defeat?
If you don’t, surely you remember when SNP leader and Scottish First Minister Nicola Sturgeon hit out at the “thuggish minority who seem to care little for the risks they pose to other people”? [Glasgow Live]
While we’re not really in lockdown anymore, COVID-19 still exists and cases are rising at a higher rate than they were when Rangers fans took to the streets of Glasgow to celebrate their team winning the league [Times].
However, with Scotland set to play Scotland at Wembley on Friday in the European Championships, a blind eye has seemingly been turned to those who have travelled down to London for the match.

Yesterday [Thursday], videos swept across social media and news channels to show Scottish football fans arriving at Euston and King’s Cross train stations in the capital.
We cannot say for sure how many people have made the journey south of the border but it’s fair to see there could be thousands.
This is all despite the fact the Mayor of London Sadiq Khan told Scotland supporters not to make their way there if they didn’t have tickets for the match [Sky News].
It’s fair to say that it’s unlikely most of these fans do have tickets due to the reduced capacity at Wembley.
Funnily enough, Sturgeon also told Scotland fans not to go to London for the match if they didn’t have a ticket [Express].

Yet she, nor Yousaf, have condemned those who defied instructions and travelled to England regardless.
The hypocrisy stinks and it shows that there’s a clear anti-Rangers agenda among the SNP.
Where was the outrage when Celtic fans besieged Parkhead to try and get Neil Lennon and the board sacked? Where’s the outrage now when thousands of Scotland fans have ignored advice and travelled across a border to watch a football match they can’t attend?
Does COVID pick and choose which football team you support? Because to use, it seems as though it’s only an issue when football crowds gather when it’s Rangers supporters.
We’re not condoning the title celebrations in Glasgow this season. But what we cannot stand is how the SNP’s leading powers seem to pick and choose which issues they react to.
Where’s the consistency?
The silence is deafening.
Can you imagine the confected outrage from Nipoleon & Blustering Blackford if this was English fans ‘invading’ Glasgow after being told to stay away? pic.twitter.com/yQc2NMPyRe

Reaction continued as the fan site slams the ‘stinking SNP hypocrisy showing anti-Rangers agenda’ after what happened Thursday…
@HelenWilliams78: Read somewhere 20,000 fans and only 3,000 tickets…..has chaos written all over it I’m afraid!
@scottishanproud: I can see it kicking off
@Michael29109661: Silence from the Scot Gov. Rangers fans were singled out cos we fly the “wrong” flag
@Beaumont296: It is quite appalling. Scotland used to be a team I would cheer on. But now there are so many republicans supporting the team I simply cannot stomach it. Then you see these cretins… whatever happened to Braveheart? These guys, literally plonkers.
@GazScott1988: Widespread condemnation from The SNP when Rangers fans celebrated winning the league in Glasgow but silent on this…
@proudbrit67: Not hear a peep from snp about this . But if it was rangers fans they would on television social media screaming about how bad rangers fans where . Double standards as a usual from snp
@nobodytoknow: Double are the only standards @theSNP has
@UnityBluefin: You should see the abuse the SNP gave Rangers fans for doing this, you’d have thought we were part of some mass genocide for celebrating a league win. I wonder if they’ll be as forth coming now it’s Scotland fans.
@deanomac55: Wonder will the SNP comment on the anti English bigotry on display yesterday from Scotland fans. Or is it just Rangers fans they’ve a problem with
@LAMBDENA: Nicola Sturgeon, our ‘Open and Transparent” TV personality blocked me so I can’t ask her why she isn’t condemning the Tartan Army in London when she so eloquently decried the Rangers fans in Glasgow a few weeks ago. I would like to ask her what the difference between the two is
What a bunch of wallopers… sorry to my lovely Rangers fans, but this? I mean who gets naked with a belly like that? Surely @NicolaSturgeon has something to say about these Cockwombles, after all she had plenty to say about Rangers fans! 😂🤣🤣🤣😂😂😂https://t.co/PnfnD1ihUM

Not one Nazionale Socialiste snp mp have utter one single word of condemnation. The same racist bigots were falling over each other to castigate Rangers fans doing the same.
Lockdown is over. https://t.co/gJgOkCH7nk
