Rangers running scared
RANGERS have contacted Uefa in an effort to ensure the safety of their players and fans ahead of the next month’s Uefa Cup trip to Israel.
The request follows an incident at a recent Israeli premier division contest in which Hapoel Tel Aviv star Yossi Abuksis was struck by a stun grenade thrown by one of his own supporters in the clash against Betar Jerusalem.
Rangers’ head of security Laurence McIntyre will travel to Israel to hold
FOOTBALL talks with club officials, local police and the British Consul. But its supporters’ club secretary John MacMillan insists fans now fear for their safety.
“Rangers must be given assurances that security will be in place. The fact that it was one of their fans makes it an even more serious incident. It cannot happen again.”
