Rangers to tackle sectarian chants

Rangers Football Club has brought in a PR agency to help it stop fans using sectarian chants.

The move comes after ­European football's governing body, Uefa, threatened fines and stand-closures for clubs whose fans persist with terrace slurs.

Glasgow agency Media House, which is run by a number of ex-journalists, will seek to spread the ­message to the club's largely Protestant fan-base through local and national Scottish media.

Media House is working alongside Rangers' legal representative on the project, Peter Watson, with whom the agency has worked on past projects.

Rangers already runs ­various anti-sectarian campaigns alongside city rivals Celtic, whose fan base is predominantly Catholic.
