Rangers fan favourite is McCoist believes that the membership has executed all the things it will possibly and that it’s as much as the upper authorities to stop these scenes from taking place:
“I hear all these individuals saying ‘the membership must be doing this’, ‘the membership must be doing that’… However what can the membership be doing when members of the general public are 10 miles away from the stadium?
“You may argue that it is a police matter, a authorities matter … The membership inspired everybody to go home, I heard them say it, I noticed it written.
“If potential [to have fans in the stadium to celebrate] then completely, little doubt it might have made sense on quite a lot of accounts.
“However I do not know what’s occurred with the laws, you may’t have beer in Glasgow, however you may soar on a flight to Portugal and come back.
“There are such a lot of unbelievable questions that may’t be prevented. Persons are scratching their heads. ”
