Following yesterday’s news that Newcastle United were investigating legal action over the English Defence League’s use of their club crest following Show Racism the Red Card’s prompting, we can reveal that Rangers FC are doing likewise.
Rangers inform us that they have successfully asked Facebook to remove references to the club in the context of the SDL. This would account for the dedicated ‘Scottish Defence League – Rangers supporters’ group having disappeared as of yesterday.
Rangers are to be congratulated for this decisive action.

Legal action is reportedly being considered by Newcastle United Football Club over the far-right English Defence League’s use of the club badge.
Given the strong attempts to exploit football networks across the country, including in Scotland, I hope other clubs will consider this action if viable.
Mosques in Glasgow and Kilmarnock have been identified by the far right Scottish Defence League and their English counterpart as possible scenes of protest.
In Glasgow, we understand that they have discussed George Square, Pollokshields and the Sheriff Court as possible locations. The latter seems like a strange place to hold a demonstration till it is understood that it is across the street from Glasgow Central Mosque.
