The Rangers and the Scottish FA have acted disgracefully in their handling of the Covid scandal involving five Rangers players.

That’s according to former Premier League goalkeeper Paddy Kenny, speaking exclusively to Football insider after it was revealed that the Rangers will appeal the decision to hand over the five players from the six-game bans at a hearing on April 20.

Bongani Zungu, Nathan Patterson, Calvin Bassey, Dapo Mebude and Brian Kinnear broke covid protocols by attending an illegal house party in February.

The date of the call means the quintet – including fit Patterson – are available for next Saturday’s Scottish Cup fourth round with Celtic.

Kenny called it “totally wrong” that the Rangers were able to pick offenders in such an important game.

“I think it is shameful from the point of view of the Scottish Federation”, he said Football insider correspondent Adam Williams.

“The Rangers are always going to appeal. They bend the rules and that’s smart. Many teams would have done the same. They do what most clubs would do.

“But to postpone the appeal until the end of Celtic’s game, I totally disagree. This is wrong for me.

Other Rangers players Jordan Jones and George Edmundson were sanctioned for a similar breach of protocol in November.

On the occasion, the couple both received seven-game bans from the SFA and were quickly dispatched on loan from the club.

In other news, a Premier League club has a strong interest in Rangers boss Steven Gerrard, Football insider can reveal exclusively.
