Rangers run­ning scared

The Jewish Chronicle - - SPORT - BY ANDREW PENTOL

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.”
