What was said ?
From Jack Ross:

Sickened by the vitriol aimed at his player, Hibs manager Ross has hit back strongly at the tone taken by some of his critics and shone a light on the personal abuse Porteous has suffered as a result.

“I think those who have that platform need to be careful not to exaggerate or misrepresent things,” said Ross. “I have seen what a 22-year-old had to deal with because of that.

“It was a tackle, that’s all it was. People can have their opinion on how bad a tackle it was, that’s football, but that’s not what I’m talking about. I’m talking about the way there was a complete misrepresentation of it by people who used inflammatory language without thought. It definitely stoked a stronger reaction.

“His disciplinary record last season was outstanding but people don’t want to hear that. In the current climate, when we are quick to highlight some other forms of abuse, it is terrible what he has had to put up with.

“He is a young man, who has had to deal with the professional disappointment of the way the game panned out but it is the other stuff he has had to deal with that’s inappropriate and we shouldn’t wash over it as though it is acceptable. The abuse, and people talking about him dying, that goes beyond the pale.”

As the incident was heavily-debated in the following days, former Hearts boss Craig Levein suggested it may not be long before reckless challenges land players in court and, taking it all in, Ross said he was astounded by the ensuing narrative.

“Some people discussed it in a rational, balanced manner, as you would expect. But some people didn’t and blew it all out of proportion,” he added.

"Because of that a 22-year-old was subjected to the most dreadful abuse in the aftermath. I have seen it and it is disgusting. I have seen sectarian abuse, homophobic abuse, people telling him they hope he dies of a tumour.

“You can say that came in the aftermath of the incident or you can say it is in the aftermath of the way some people spoke about it but I have to be protective of him.”

There were check-up calls in the hours and days that followed and despite Gerrard’s assertion that Porteous “let his manager down and his teammates down”, Ross hit back.

“Ryan didn’t let me down, he knows that. I’m there to make my players better so it’s not about me. He is a young man who has made over 100 appearances for Hibs and he loves this club and wants to bring success. He will always come back stronger.”

The fact the BBC have only “reported” what Jack Ross has said in their gossip column, rather than as an actual article, says everything. Their coverage of the incident, the two clowns in the studio with their “analysis” have played as much a part in stoking up abuse to a young footballer as much as anything.

Hibs should have been stronger at the time, but I’m glad Jack Ross has said what he said now. The club should be putting a statement out slamming the coverage from the BBC etc. and how it has influenced the abuse Ryan Porteous has received.

Which planet has our manager been on for the last 10 days and has he reflected on his own weak post match interview comments.😰😡😡.

No doubt he is angry and obviously very angry but he kept his puss shut throughout the ensusuing witch hunt and crucially never backed his player in public until far to late in the day.,😰

This isn't news any longer and the damage in these sort of incidents is always done in the first few days which is actually when Hibs should be right out there kicking and screaming and biting and fighting and if neccessary naming and shaming the "Scotland's Shame 2012" apologists like Rae or rent a quote moothpieces like Commons.😡

They never ever do though😰 which is the huge weakness that runs through the club from top to bottom and as a result Hibs are seen as a bunch of wee sapps in a way that Aberdeen and the Puddledrinkers never are.😰

Let's sing 'There's Only One Ryan Porteous' right throughout the United game.It'll be picked up on Sportsound and Sportscene and they can't ignore it.
Yes let’s sing it with gusto….whoever he is. Seriously though whether you think it was or wasn’t a red I think it’s a good idea to show support to the lad and to stick two fingers up to the authorities at the same time.
A visual protest with some sort of banner would have been good but bit late for that I suppose.

Craig Latrine is a blood stained jobby, wannabe hun, specky, trophyless, one up front , drunken, gambling addict, devious , hibs hating wuckin fanker.

Ive said it before, but I hope Ryan goes steaming into his first tackle in the semi , just to show them he won’t be influenced by their propaganda shit.
