Rangers Protests Against Officiating At Port Harcourt

Enugu Rangers International has protested against poor refereeing in its Week 22 match against which ended 1-1 on Monday morning in Port Harcourt.

The game was stopped after 74 minutes on Sunday due to heavy downpour with Rangers leading 1-0.

However, commenting on the concluding 16 minutes, Rangers Director of Media and Publicity, Foster Chime, complained that Sharks equalised from an offside position.

“The goal Sharks scored was a clear offside. Three players were clearly in offside position and the centre referee and his assistants ignored it. You are killing the league.

“I have always said that Rangers is not afraid of defeat, but a team must win well and that way the integrity of the game can be maintained,” Foster explained.

“However, we have filed in our protest letter with the video clips and photographs to the appropriate authority. Even if the result will not be overturned, the authorities must know what happened, let the truth be told and appropriate sanction taken.”

Meanwhile, Rangers players have pledged to up their game in the remaining half of the season and return to its pride of place in the Nigerian top flight.
