Rangers fan group Club 1872 have blasted Kilmarnock over a fan "crush" outside Rugby Park last week - before they condemned their own supporters who jumped on a disabled roofing section after the winning goal.

Gers fans were left outside the ground in their droves as their side's Premiership clash kicked-off in Ayrshire after Killie's ticketing system failed.

Some fans reported a potential "crush" situation as thousands waited to enter the stadium 

Rangers addressed the incident via Club 1872, slamming Kilmarnock chiefs - as well as BBC pundits Michael Stewart and Tom English - for their "misinformed" comments.

The statement read: "Kilmarnock’s new ticketing system did indeed fail despite suggestions to the contrary. 

"It has been accepted there was also a failure to deal properly with the problems this caused. 

"There was no recognisable plan of action to deal with such a situation and it was very close to kick off before someone thought the problem, which had started to cause panic among those Rangers supporters, who were being pushed and squeezed together toward the turnstiles, should be brought to the attention of the police.

"By that time some Rangers fans were being crushed and in a state of alarm, and there are many testimonies which bear that out.

"Kilmarnock has accepted their ticketing system failed (and that there had been problems with it at the game against Connah's Quay Nomads) despite one of their directors promoting the irresponsible notion there had been no operational problems. 

"We would hope to receive a retraction and an apology from Kilmarnock for having pointed the finger of blame at Rangers fans for the issues which arose ahead of kick off. 

"Those pundits, particularly two BBC Scotland contributors, Michael Stewart and Tom English, who made flippant and insulting comments without knowing the facts of what actually happened, might also wish to reconsider their comments and apologise now that the debriefing has revealed that a ticketing failure, and not the impatience of Rangers fans, caused the problem before the kick off on Sunday."

On the yobs climbing the disabled shelter roof - as well as those fans who raced onto the pitch to celebrate - Rangers explained how they would "not tolerate" that behaviour.

And they revealed the supporters involved will be dealt with.

Club 1872 added: "Although there has been an attempt to roll everything that happened at Rugby Park into one issue it is important to retain a sense of perspective and balance. 

"The congestion before the match had no bearing on what happened at the end of the game when Rangers fans went on to the pitch to celebrate a late winning goal. 

"Their presence on the pitch cannot be condoned and Rangers are working with Police Scotland to identify and trace those who crossed the line between acceptable and unacceptable behaviour.

"The same applies to the handful of fans who jumped on to the roof of the enclosure reserved for disabled supporters causing that covering to collapse. 

"Their behaviour endangered the safety of their fellow fans and we are fortunate no one was badly hurt. Those fans will also be dealt with appropriately as soon as they are identified.

"Rangers believes the safety of all fans to be paramount and will not tolerate this kind of behaviour whether away or at home."
