In what way are Rangers supporters anti-English?

That's the most ridiculous thing said on this thread and that's saying something!

Sorry, but that's still ridiculous.

Firstly, being anti-English and wanting the English football team to lose are two totally different things.

Secondly, are you really basing your opinion on a sample size of SNP supporters of one? Big Grin

Thirdly, I know lots of Scottish Rangers fans who are ambivalent when it comes to the Scottish national team and I know lots who want England to win (with the same proviso as you). I am only aware of one SNP supporter (you) who is happy to support the English football team, although I'm sure that there may be a few more.

The main conclusions I'd come to are that it's wrong to generalise and it's best to keep party politics away from chess. 8)
