RANGERS fans could have landed their club in trouble after sectarian singing during last night’s televised Championship clash with Raith Rovers featured in match delegate Tom Purdie’s report from the game.

The offensive singing, described by Purdie as “sustained”. will put pressure on the SPFL to act following the governing body’s conclusion that neither Rangers or Celtic were to blame for sectarian singing by fans at the recent Old Firm League Cup semi-final at Hampden Park.

Stan Collymore, the former Liverpool and England footballer, was dropped by BT Sport from his role of TV pundit for the Raith Rovers v Rangers match, which the Ibrox side won 2-1.

This followed his demand on Twitter that Rangers game should not be televised live because of sectarian singing by their fans.
