Rangers fan rep in Scott Allan homophobic slur


Less than a month after denouncing abuse directed at Scott Allan from Hibernian fans over his potential switch to Rangers, Sons of Struth co-founder [and regular fan representative to the media]Craig Houston has been caught posting homophobic slurs about Scott Allan after he signed for Celtic.

On Tuesday night, Houston posted two video montages in ‘honour’ of Rangers midfielder Andy Halliday – nothing strange in a Rangers fan paying tribute to one of his club’s players you say – but Houston [in the same montages]then aimed homophobic abuse at Scott Allan days after he signed for Rangers’ rivals Celtic.

Houston founded Sons of Struth along with convicted drug dealer and football hooligan Sandy Chugg – who is up in court again after being arrested again after the League Cup semi final 2-0 defeat to Celtic back in February.


When confronted over his homophobic abuse, Houston replied with another montage:

Is this the type of Rangers fan representation that Rangers fans deserve? Is this the type of fan that the BBC and STV should use to represent Rangers Football Club and its fans?

FootballvHomophobia, speaking exclusively to Scotzine, said: “It’s always disappointing to see a player being abused with homophobia, but particularly concerning when this comes from an organised supporters group. Football fans come from all communities and we need to make sure that supporting the game is safe and welcoming of everyone.”
