Rangers hit with UEFA charge after fireworks
BY JOHN McGILL
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.
