Stan Collymore reacts on Twitter to Glasgow Rangers latest statement

Mark Warburton's Glasgow Rangers side, who play their home games at Ibrox, released a statement yesterday.

Stan Collymore has slated Glasgow Rangers’ latest statement after the Scottish Cup Final match against Hibernian.

Rangers lost 3-2 against Alan Stubbs' side on Saturday, and Hibs fans charged on to the pitch at full-time.

Rangers players were allegedly confronted in the celebrations, and the Light Blues released a statement yesterday saying: “Rangers finds it incomprehensible that no one, either from within the Scottish FA or Hibernian Football Club, has condemned Hibernian’s supporters following the violent scenes at the end of yesterday’s Scottish Cup final when Rangers players and members of our backroom staff were physically and verbally assaulted.

“We have not even had the courtesy of any contact whatsoever from Hibernian to ask after the wellbeing of those who were attacked by their club’s supporters.”

Collymore was less than impressed with the Rangers' statement, when he was asked about it on Twitter.

The match itself between Rangers and Hibs was a pulsating one, between two sides who were desperate to win.

Hibs took the lead in the early stages when Anthony Stokes scored a fine individual goal, but Mark Warburton’s men quickly struck back.

The Ibrox side scored twice to grab the advantage, but a wonderful late show from Hibs turned the match around. Hibs scored agains through Stokes, and then rounded off the triumph when David Gray netted a late header.

The win ended Alan Stubbs’ side’s 114 wait to lift the Scottish Cup, and denied Rangers the chance of winning the treble.
