Rangers have hit back at a report carried in the Spanish newspaper El Mundo Deportivo which castigated the Ibrox players and fans after the Champions League defeat by Barcelona on Wednesday.

The match apparently passed without any real trouble and there were no arrests but an article in the Spanish newspaper, headlined ´Don´t Ever Come Back´, reportedly accused drunken fans of vomiting and urinating in the streets and of provoking trouble.

It also reportedly claimed that the club should not be in the competition because their players are "dirty butchers who can only defend". But Rangers´ security and operations manager Kenny Scott branded the allegations "ridiculous".
