Paul Robinson slams 'dangerous' Rangers players as punishment plan revealed
Paul Robinson has ripped into the four Rangers players who breached Covid-19 protocols over the weekend.
The former England number one, speaking exclusively to Football Insider, insisted he has “no time” for the rule-breakers who should know by now how dangerous the pandemic is.
This site exclusively broke the news at 7pm on Sunday that Rangers had launched an internal probe after an incident in the west end of Glasgow on Saturday night.

Police broke up a flat party in the early hours of the morning and at least four Gers players are said to have been in attendance.
Football Insider now understands that the club are discussing plans to suspend for the remainder of the 2020-21 campaign the four players who breached lockdown rules.
When asked for his assessment of Sunday evenings incident, Robinson told Football Insider: “Unfortunately, it is something we are reading with footballers.

“It has happened before in the Premier League and in Scotland and those players will have to face their punishment, whether it is internal, external or both.
“I just do not understand people who break the rules. Anyone who flaunts the rules I do not have time for. You can see how dangerous this pandemic is at the moment.
“Yes, football players are with each other training on a daily basis but they are not exempt from the rules outside of football. They have to abide by the rules.”
It comes after two Rangers players were caught breaching lockdown rules last autumn.
Jordan Jones and George Edmundson were handed fixed penalty fines by police and seven-match suspensions by the Scottish FA for their breach of Covid-19 regulations.
