Rangers managing director Stewart Robertson has revealed the club will meet with Instagram and Facebook chiefs to try and clamp down on social media abuse.

Glen Kamara and Kemar Roofe are just two players who have suffered high profile abuse in recent weeks, adding to the likes of Alfredo Morelos before them and other players around the country.

Mr Robertson has confirmed the club's staff and players will all take part in a week-long boycott of ALL social channels beginning this evening at 7pm. And now he has told how Facebook and Instagram bosses have agreed to meet over the issues.

He told the club website: “We can confirm that as a board and as a club, we are fully behind our players and management on this issue.

“Furthermore, we have arranged to meet Facebook and Instagram to underline our growing concerns.

“Having spoken to a wide range of clubs across the United Kingdom, we know these concerns are shared by all clubs and it is fair to say everyone is losing patience with the lack of action from social media companies.

“Rangers hope is that clear and direct action is taken from social media platforms. The basic verification of users, as part of the sign-up process, to any social media platform, will ensure that users are both identifiable and accountable for their actions and words. We will raise this next week in our scheduled meetings.

“Rangers has driven its flagship Everyone Anyone campaign forward rigorously, drawing praise and support from fellow clubs, governing bodies and politicians, and we will continue to stand firmly against all forms of discrimination. Enough is enough.

“We would hope that social media companies recognise the benefit of verified accounts. If they don’t, it is time for government to step in and legislate. As a club, we will continue to consider all options which increase pressure on social media platforms until they begin working proactively in the interests of wider society.

“The Rangers players and management will begin their boycott from today (8th April) at 7pm for one week.”
