  1. It’s Not What You Say, But What They Hear I made a mistake last Sunday. In a pique of frustration over the inevitability of much of Saturday night’s events and annoyance over some of the coverage it garnered, I sent a Tweet. As Tweets go it was quite long, and was an attempt to remind people that Rangers supporter’s who fight police officers, or themselves, on a Saturday night in town are no more representative of me, or the vast majority of our support, than the Rangers supporter’s who went bird watching, long distancing running or line dancing are. I wish I hadn’t. I’

  3. Humza Hates H-u-ns. I thought I would wait a week to see the extent of PQ's limit of exploitation? As stated two posts up, there has been a significant change of phase, Michael Stewart defined it, "sectarianism is racism". It's a stick fashioned to beat Rangers supporters. UEFA have already closed an Ibrox stand and PQ is heavy with anticipation. There are no shortage of volunteers wanting to be seen wielding the stick. Hitting H-u-ns fills the usual suspects with a feeling of immense well being and as we have seen on numerous past occasions, a guaranteed good career move. T

  4. So here the journey really does end, nine years after the clubs in the SPL and SFL took an unnecessary decision to put the country's foremost club in it's place and share the kudos of lording it over the "bigheads and bigots" at Ibrox. No one will ever convince me that what Rangers was put through was motivated by anything other than envy and bigotry, nowhere more so than amongst the Scottish nationalist and pseudo-Irish communities. There should be no doubt either that many of those who pulled the rug out from under us were quite prepared to see Rangers extinguished altogether. You just know

  5. https://www.gersnet.co.uk/index.php/news-category/current-affairs/1383-ftq-rangers-independence-and-the-culture-wars In recent weeks, we’ve seen the demonisation of Rangers supporters - barely caveated with ‘a small sections of’ - by prominent politicians. Anti-Catholic and Anti-Irish bigotry. It seems like a fool’s errand to try and bring logic to a situation like this, because we live in an era of culture wars across the Western world where rationality is no longer the common ground. It is entirely about power. I won’t waste your time giving you a history of the academic roots of

  6. Surely, this is a joke? It's similar to an incident that occurred this morning. A chap walked into his GPs this morning, informing the Doctor he was attending his Mother-in-Law's funeral next Thursday and wanted advice on removing the permanent smile from his face. He felt a happy visog was most inappropriate for the occasion. The GP said, "no problem, I can book you in for the necessary minor surgery on Tuesday morning". Then, the GP asked, "just to ascertain the length of anesthesia required, how long have you had this condition"? The Bear answered, "oh eight weeks, s

  7. From the Heald: Brian Wilson: SNP hammered hospitality but guaranteed George Square chaos IT may be unfashionable to point out but football can create really joyous occasions. Take last Saturday’s FA Cup Final at Wembley with 21,500 people in the stadium, an intimation that normality is again conceivable. There was an emotional quality to the singing of Abide With Me, dedicated to victims of the pandemic. “When other helpers fail and comforts flee; Help of the helpless, oh, abide with me”. Old words with special meaning as people came together after so long, in thi

  9. Many thanks as always @Rick Roberts An early walk to the stadium with a friend was met with fair weather and pockets of fans and flags drawn to the occasion. Crowds had already formed along Edmiston Drive. The party had started long before and was already in full swing for many by late morning. The police were present in numbers and their policy was stand-off and fair. There’s something surreal about standing outside a football ground with thousands of people whilst a game unfolds relatively unwatched inside. If anything this quirk added to the occasion. Not that it needed a

Unfortunately, whataboutery simply won’t help us in this current situation .Until the club actually take one of these hating bastards all the way through the courts , they will simply keep on coming . What doesn’t help is the fact that , the fake video aside , we keep on giving them a free hit , Saturday was so obvious , anyone with half a brain cell could see it coming . We never learn , Manchester is a case in point , 2 weeks prior to that final and the authorities were still adamant they weren’t putting on fans zones , no matter how many people and authorities told them otherwis

  12. Yep, been a Boca fan since I think 2001. A few of the old school regulars will know about this. It started with me working night shifts back in the day and I couldn't sleep when I got home and discovered channel 5(is that still going?) showed a full match from the Argentinean league and highlights from all the other games. I was drawn to Boca because it was Maradonas team and the atmosphere of the crowd. I got chatting to a guy online who was a big fan and we were like pen pals for years exchanging Boca and Rangers stuff like ticket stubs, photos, scarves and the like. Eventu

  13. I'm not in favour of the new "supporter package". It's basically blackmail. Pay us £150 to increase your chances of getting a cup final ticket etc due to the award of Mygers points. Cup final tickets should not be awarded on the basis of who has more cash.

  15. I noted Humza reinforcing a Police Scotland Tweet on this matter. Clearly, the video has been downloaded and the sound edited. It's what Humza wants to believe, he needs to believe it. Within 15 minutes of Humza's Tweet, lot's of other folks, we will call them the usual suspects are re-Tweeting with added comments. These include James Dornan MSP, Angela Haggerty, Jum Spence, Stan Collymore, ..... etc. The video was uploaded on to TikTok by 'WullieWanker'. I advise the Rangers players involved to Lawyer up and begin civil proceedings.

  18. In general I don't disagree with the thrust. But yesterday's illegal gathering was promoted and called for by politicians and none, including Humza, have condemned it today. In fact, most have lauded it. As such, as correct as you are to ask fans to consider their responsibilities, one rule for one group and one rule for another just muddies the water and gives people an excuse not to follow the rules. I'll be clear though (and I tweeted this yesterday before the Pollokshields stuff), I would ask fans to consider our own responsibilities on Saturday. The ma

  19. From Pollok to Postecoglou. BBC Radio Scotland have begun with a 45 minute discussion on the merits of Eddie Howe and revealed none of them know anything about Ange Postecoglou. Pollok is so last week, but the narrative remains the same. Big Dick is posted missing, another Dandy, Liam McLeaod seamlessly slips in to Host. The contributors are Tom English, Michael Stewart, Pat Bonner, Leanne Crichton and, Billy Dodds. BBC Scotland's Sports News Correspondent, Chris McLaughlin starts with a Sellik update, "I can confirm Celtic are involved in advance stage talks with Ange Postecoglou

  25. Throw the book at Rangers, turn a blind eye to Celtic (or, failing that, Hibs will do). Make sure the harshness of your condemnation for any transgression is proportional to the number of Union flags on display. Pretend to be concerned about bigotry when really you're just defending your chosen side, playing goodies and baddies, and politicizing the issue rather than tackling it. It's a dangerous thing the Scottish government are doing. If you're partizan and outspoken on the subject of sectarianism (like Haggerty, 3 names) you're part of the problem. If you're partizan, outsp

  26. Let's go back 14 years, a video appeared of the then Sellik Chair, Brian Quinn accompanied by two Sellik players, John Hartson and Stephen Pearson on the stage of the Clanree Hotel, Donegal. The hostelry was owned by former IRA man(he had taken off his balaclava for the weekend), Hughie McGee. The Clanree Hotel was the venue for the end of season Player of the Year Dinner for the North of Ireland Celtic Supporters Association. The suited and booted attendees sat at their tables and applauded enthusiastically as the former Vice-Chair of the Bank of England, Brian Quinn took the stage. As Hartso

  27. A new low for Scotland, for this SNP Government and sadly, Police Scotland. Hell mend those of us who voted for them, clearly a political based assault on Rangers and our fans who are seen as the last bastion of Unionism. Its now open warfare, be careful which side you chose.

  34. Firstly, that wasn't a spontaneous protest by the neighbours. Politicians were calling for people from all over to attend. Secondly, I don't know the rights and wrongs of the specific case, but those protesting were interrupting people going about enforcing the law. Yes, that's totally different and should, on the face of it, be condemned a lot more than people just celebrating a league win.

  35. Fellow Rangers supporters beware! I know, I know, we are on the cusp of completing a long, weary journey. Placing the next step is most difficult, but we must finish the quest. Today's events in Pollokshields light the way of the path we must travel. A few hundred woke demonstrators have secured the release of two illegal immigrants from a Home Office van. The reasoning is that both are part of the community and despite being in a state contrary to the laws of the country, the First Minister has supported their right to a standard of life in Scotland. Further, Humza Yousaf was fulm

  36. I suggest that if any footballer wants to get more involved in politics then let them join a party or pressure group. The average fan does not want to see multi millionaires virtue signalling before a football match. This is not a spontaneous act. The players were told to do this and only football persists with meaningless gestue politics. People boo, not because they are racist (though a small minority may be) but because they don't like being preached to.

We are told a minimum of six weeks. As of today, ra Sellik have no Captain. As of today, ra Sellik have no Director of Football. As of today, ra Sellik have an invisible new Chief Executive. As of today, ra Sellik have no new players. As of today, Humza Yousaf is the Scottish Health Minister. Can he not provide his fellow Yahoos with a Helpline number

  40. It's such a familiar reaction to Rangers success that no one can be surprised at recent events. What is more worrying is the clear coordination between the SFA, government, media and police .... who now express their bigotry like a well-practised barbershop quartet. This is a direct consequence of SNP policy to centralise and control every aspect of public life. The only thing missing here is Bearger denouncing the Rangers support and defending the integrity of Sturgeon and Yousaf.

  41. You cannot seriously be comparing both? I was proud as f of us yesterday, proud of our fans with the red display along the Clyde, the red white and blue smoke bombs outside Ibrox, was absolutely brilliant, fireworks going off while we were taking the sheep apart once more. But I will not for a minute identify with the fuckwits that soured our name by their behaviour in George Square.

A couple of fantastic points from the trophy presentation I noticed and absolutely loved. first that no SPFL officials were part of the presentation and secondly that we changed our tops after the game but before the presentation and wore tops that did not have the SPFL logo on them. A great F you to the corrupt cabal who have royally fucked us over since 2012.
