Police Scotland have decided not to release the reports from the start of March that saw the Klanbase run riot across the city of Glasgow, this clearly indicates they have something to hide.
On the 6th of March, the vermin gathered outside Ibrox in their masses to greet their manager Steven Gerrard after clinching the club’s very first major title ever, despite breaking pandemic protocols that have kept the rest of us inside for the best part of 12 months.
Even their manager broke rules as he gave a lift to a fellow staff member despite the rest of the clubs in Scotland having to use separate busses.
After the game, the players even ran to the corner of the stadium to greet fans and when they returned to the Ibrox dressing room you could see players and Gerrard himself throwing scarves and other merch at the fans from a window, these clowns think they are above the law and clearly the Police do indeed have reports that they are hiding.
The large crowd of fans then started marching to George Square accompanied by the Police as the vermin trashed memorial benches and even smashed the Celtic store window on Argyle street.
The police force said correspondence between Rangers Football Club, Glasgow City Council, the Scottish Government and senior officers would be kept secret due to concerns releasing it would “compromise operational policing”.
Scenes of thousands of Rangers fans taking to the streets of Glasgow on the weekend of March 6 and 7 were condemned by politicians with the behaviour of fans labelled “disgraceful” by senior police officers in the aftermath.
John Scott QC, a leading lawyer, was commissioned to undertake a review of the policing approach by Police Scotland and found officers had acted proportionately.
The approach taken by police had been criticised by the SNP MSP Sandra White who claimed the approach had failed to protect the public after Chief Constable Iain Livingstone insisted the police took “appropriate steps” to manage the crowds.
However, the decision to keep the discussions between the main stakeholders involved in the policing of the weekend secret was heavily criticised by opposition politicians.
Liberal Democrat justice spokesperson Liam McArthur said the public “deserve to see how these decisions were arrived at” and whether the Scottish Government or Glasgow City Council “sought to influence them”.
He said: “Under the SNP the default seems to be to keep discussion under wraps. There is obviously huge public concern over the decisions taken about the policing of title celebrations, especially when the light touch approach is contrasted with that taken by the police in regard to the Sarah Everard protests.”
In the aftermath of the celebrations Police Scotland claimed requests to Rangers to tell fans to go home were ignored by the club, with Deputy Chief Constable Malcolm Graham ‘strongly condemning’ the “lack of support” from the football club.
Responding, the club claimed they “initiated open dialogue with key stakeholders” including Mr Yousaf, the Scottish Government, the SPFL, and Police Scotland around the implications of a league title.
However, Police Scotland officials said the details of these discussions. if published, would provide criminals with knowledge of key policing methods and would harm the ability of individuals to discuss plans due to a fear of having their opinions made public.
Douglas Park alleged in a letter leaked to on-message media outlets that Glasgow City Council should have cleared street furniture to enable lawbreakers to do as they pleased in George Square. There were no police horses required.
It was confirmed that 36 police officers were forced to self-isolate as a result of the events in George Square. In Glasgow, Lanarkshire, and Ayrshire, there was an increase in positive test outcomes.
