RANGERS have been hit with a UEFA charge but have avoided fresh sanc­tions over sec­tar­ian singing.

The club face UEFA dis­ci­plinary ac­tion for fans “set­ting off fire­works” at last week’s Europa League draw against Feyeno­ord in Rotterdam.

There had been spec­u­la­tion Rangers could face a third charge over sec­tar­ian chants this sea­son but the fire­works is­sue is the only one listed on the charge sheet.

A Rangers spokesman said: “We are in the process of ban­ning the in­di­vid­u­als re­spon­si­ble for dis­play­ing an of­fen­sive ban­ner while en route to Holland last week and if those re­spon­si­ble for the flares can be iden­ti­fied, they will also be banned.”

It is un­der­stood that, apart from those who set off flates, the UEFA del­e­gate praised the be­hav­iour of Rangers fans.
