Rangers were hit by two Scottish FA charges on Tuesday relating to their application for a UEFA licence in 2011 – and Gers fans on Twitter are absolutely furious with the governing body’s decision.

The SFA announced on their website that the Gers have been charged with breaking the rules over a tax bill prior to being awarded a licence to play in European football in the 2011/12 season.

The Gers could face a fine of up to £5million, exclusion from the Scottish Cup, having their licence revoked or a transfer ban.

The Ibrox giants responded in a statement, confirming that they would “fiercely resist” the charges – but Gers fans were disgusted at what they perceived to be a witch-hunt against the Light Blues – with one saying it is about time Rangers got “up and left” Scottish football.

Here are some of their comments on Twitter:

The Gers have until May 22nd to officially respond to the charges with a hearing scheduled for June 26th.

The Scottish FA had originally spent eight months investigating another alleged breach of the rules stemming from evidence given during former owner Craig Whyte’s criminal trial for fraud last year.

Evidence was given which claimed that the Ibrox giants had known about a £2.8million tax bill, known as the ‘wee tax case’ in November 2010, contradicting information the club had given to the Scottish FA that it was under dispute with HMRC.

In other Rangers news, with Celtic out of the way, the Gers must snap up this £3.5million-rated enforcer with bags of international and Champions League experience.
