Rangers fans could still boycott away games

Rangers fans are still considering boycotting away matches after the club lost its appeal against sanctions by the SFA's judicial panel. The administration-hit club had hoped a 12-month transfer embargo and fine of £160,000 would be scrapped upon appeal but their case was thrown out following an appellate tribunal hearing on Wednesday night.

Andy Kerr, president of the Rangers Supporters Assembly, said: "We had a meeting on the day of the march and there were a whole range of things put forward.

"We said we wouldn't have any knee-jerk reactions and be hopeful the appeals process would help.

"Now we know it hasn't been a help, we will revisit that discussion as a matter of urgency and consider what might be the best actions to take in the interests of the club.

"We need to be careful that we don't end up hurting ourselves at the same time."

He added: "There will definitely be a call not to support away matches because that is directly impacting on the other clubs and they are member clubs of the SFA.

"In terms of the SFA specifically, there has already been some activity in terms of protesting and making representations to their sponsors.

"Potentially, there will be a call not to enter the Scottish Cup because that is the only competition we compete in that's directly under the auspices of the SFA.

"The other one is non-cooperation with national squads."
