Rangers News: James Tavernier of Rangers was attacked by a Hibernian fan last night at Easter Road.
The Light Blues went head to head with the Hibs in the Championship fixture last night.
Daniel Candeias found the early lead for the visitors just before heading to the tunnel for half time.
Later, the lead was cancelled by the Hibs player Florian Kamberi, which eventually lead to a stalemate.
Just minutes before the half time while Tavernier was in the touchline to collect the ball, a fan suddenly rushed towards him and tried to kick the ball.
Then the unidentified fan shoved the right back before the Police forced him away.
The Hibs CEO was gutted by the event. He said, (h/t The Daily Express)
It’s just unacceptable, completely unacceptable. This week alone we’ve had to write to Scott Sinclair and apologise to him for the bottle (thrown at the Celtic player).
“Now I have to go and see Mr Tavernier and apologize to him as well. It’s unacceptable.
Earlier, in the game against Celtic, fans hurled away a bottle towards the Hoops star Scott Sinclair.
He added that this kind of events dampens the reputation of the club.
The game also saw a red card for the Hibs player Darren McGregor in injury time.
The former Allan Stubbs who was summarizing the game said, (h/t The Daily Express)
It’s just so sad to see because it’s just mindless individuals.
“You’ve got to be careful though not to tar the same brush to all the fans.
“But it’s the minority of some idiots who are trying to spoil everything.
The Light Blues have picked up back to back draws in the last two games.
They are slated to face Aberdeen in the Scottish Cup quarterfinal replays at Ibrox stadium next week.
