Ranger's Fans to Make Their TV Debuts Tonight.

Last updated : 27 January 2009 By Clydebuilt
Manchester Police have released CCTV footage of 49 Rangers fans that they want to speak to in relation to the Manchester Riots backing May of last year that saw hundreds of Rangers fans go on the rampage after their team was soundly beaten in the UEFA Cup final.

Suprisingly the reaction to this on Rangers websites has been one of joyful acceptance as they feel vindicated that only a small percentage of their flock are being pursued. Either that or they are happy that they are going to be on TV tonight after BBC Scotland decided that only one Semi final was worthy of showing on TV.

The fact that the 49 persons being pursued by GMP are wanted for attempted murder etc and other serious charges has seemed to escape the revisionists of the Rangers Support.

One of the wanted fans

Detective Superintendent Geoff Wessell, who is leading the investigation, said: "May 14 2008 is a night when shameful violence marred what should have been a wonderful football showcase.

"We now want the public's help in putting names to the faces of the people we believe were involved in the violence.

"Those featured in the images were involved in violence ranging from attacks on police officers and property to general disorder.

"I ask that you take a few minutes to view the images and, if you recognise anyone, please fill in the simple on-line form with the offender's details. If necessary this can be done anonymously.

"It's a simple process that could help us put some violent people behind bars."

What is that song that the Rangers fans sing? Something about the building their Gallows high?

Yours in Celtic
