'Joke', 'Corrupt', 'Shocking' - Rangers fans rage over two-game ban for ex-player

Rangers fans on social media have reacted with anger to the news that former Ger Steven Naismith is set to be suspended for his alleged stamp on Celtic captain Scott Brown.

The Hearts attacker has been offered a two game ban, which was announced on the SFA website a short time ago.

The news has angered Gers fans who feel that the Hoops skipper gets too much protection from referees, and who has been guilty of some poor challenges himself in the past.

Here are some of the best reactions from Gers fans to the news that Naismith has been offered a suspension:

Because of the SFA’s appeals process, Naismith is set to play for Hearts against Hibernian on Wednesday night, but would miss their last game of the season and first next season if he is banned.

Naismith spent five years at Ibrox, from 2007 to 2012, and became a firm favourite with fans despite a serious of injuries which kept him out of action for long spells.

The relationship between the player and the fans was damaged in the summer of 2012 though, when Naismith left the Ibrox club after their liquidation and subsequent relegation to the second division, and the club received no money from his departure.
