  1. Before ra Sellik kicked a ball in their first game against a Rangers xi(the Swifts), ground had been purchased and two grand stands erected, a wooden cycling track had been laid, and an exhibition game was played between Hibs and Renton on the ground. Ra Sellik promptly signed the better halves of both sides; condemning the original Hibees into oblivion and Renton to a junior football future. The four teenagers founding Rangers played their games on a tidal flood plain. It took Rangers first eleven three months to gather sufficient pennies to purchase a second hand football from Queens Park. The price was seven shillings and sixpence(37.5 pence post decimal). Truly, Collymore is a clown.

  2. Mayhem and carnage in the West of Scotland after matches against celtic. You must remember it from a few years ago. They were all on about it. Chief Constables, Jack McConnell, Salmond, the toff Liberal guy, Gorrie, Chick Young, NBM and all the rest of the hand-wringers, even surgeons from A&E departments. Streets running with blood. Domestic violence. Hospitals over burdened. You don’t hear so much these days. What’s changed? Are all the initiatives and re-education programmes bearing fruit? Or is it just that Rangers were winning then and celtic are winning now?

  3. It's definitely coming from Gersnet. On my iPhone I get no ads at all anywhere, apart from Gersnet over the past couple of days.

  6. Yes and equally it would be disingenuous to pretend that the club and many of the support didn't have some of the political and/or religious beliefs we are talking about. It's fairly simple really and it comes down to realism and mutual respect. I'm not from the West of Scotland and growing up a first generation Rangers fan in Edinburgh, my attention was always directed at the football. I went to games and sang songs but wasn't really aware of the history behind it until further down the track and that co-incided with joining the Marines and a couple of tours of N.I., so it dovetailed quite nicely. As I've got older my politcs and my football are very seperate and I wouldn't shape my politics because of the football team I support. To me, that would be plain silly but for those who grew up and were formed closer to Ibrox and/or within a Rangers supporting family, then you can understand their politics, etc.

  11. The number 34 used to be the bus you'd catch from Lothian Road (Edinburgh) to take you down to the dug racing at Powderhall. Powderhall has long since gone, as is the best part of James Collins career. --------------------- Edit...according to soccerway stats. / recent injuries Hamstring 11/03/18 12/05/18 Hamstring 21/03/18 30/04/18 Hamstring 01/03/18 09/03/18 Calf Muscle Strain 27/12/17 12/01/18 Ankle/Foot Injury 17/09/17 13/12/17 Knock 23/05/17 31/05/17 League minutes played (Max 38x90 = 3420) 12/13....... 2496 13/14.......1899 14/15.......1879 15/16.......1439 16/17.......1653 17/18.......1050

  12. Folks, Most of you will have been bombarded with emails recently about the new GDPR laws in the EU. This forum is already compliant in terms of your registration but we also need your permission cookie-wise for our advertising partner on here and our main site so you'll receive an opt-in to review their obligations and requests there. The odd small issue aside with the occasional ad, our partner is very good and reliable on such issues so as much as it's your choice what purposes you want to approve, I'd like to put your mind at res in that regard. Finally, apologies for the green colour in the pop up but that's their branding...

  20. I'm too lazy and busy to contribute plus I think everyone has enough of my ramblings as it is. I think a Gersnet podcast featuring me and DB could be quite entertaining though. Jokes apart, I will do a preview one of these days. We need to start playing decent football first though or it will be horrendously negative.

  21. Definitely wouldn't want a pay wall, but you could open yourself up to donations. For me, this is not just an extremely well run site with a good balance of members, but it's literally the only choice for a Rangers forum. We all know what the other ones are like. However, ads have been no issue until this recent occurrence, which is obviously a glitch.

  22. "50%" and their restriction to only three protestants was percentage-wise more exclusionary. They greeted Walters with bananas They were founded to stop their kids eating soup from Kirk charity. Our founders had nothing of what he says in mind So - wrong in all aspects, Stan. Every claim = wrong. pity he can't be sued for it

  36. The last few days I've been getting plagued by fake Amazon pop-up ads, when browsing Gersnet on my phone - I think a couple of other users mentioned it on the main forum. They redirect me to a page that can't be backed out of - the only option is to close the browser. Is it something admin can report or block? I'll attach a screenshot... Thanks.

  38. When Rangers becomes purely about football, there will be nothing left to stand against Celtc FC and their anti-British, terrorist loving filth dominating Scottish football. Why do you think they hate us and obsess about us so much, cos it has little to do with football.

  39. I am not denying anything. Bill, times change. people change. I remember supporters saying they would burn their scarf's if we ever signed a catholic. A few may have but it was minimal. When you have 40.000 season ticket holders you are going to have mixed idea's. You have yours the same as the other 40.000. It doesn't make you right and them wrong. For me the important thing is Rangers Football Club. It is that institution that I love. I think more and more people support Rangers rather than Politics. In fact you may say football is becoming more important than politics for many people.

  40. utter guph.....the national debt now is twice what it was in 2010 and there's nothing the tories can do about because they've sold off other people's assets. Only the NHS is left and they're doing their best to flog that off.

  41. As far as I know being a part of Britain was not a part of Rangers history at any time. It was with the arrival of Irish that some supporters linked it but as far as I know the club have never had any political slant for or against

  43. Most of the time on these forums we enjoy a great debate and argument about all things Rangers. Now and again however there's an element of our support that surfaces which in my opinion is distasteful and embarrassing. I suppose this element exists in society, and as we've discussed on here before, our support is largely representative of the wider society. It therefore shouldn't be a surprise that we see a representative sample of that in some postings on here. Thankfully, this forum seems to be subjected to it far less than others, which for me is a good thing.

  44. We could do relatively well and still not make the group stages. I look at some of the seeded teams further into the qualifiers..... Sevilla Besiktas AZ Alkmaar Maccabi Tel-Aviv RB Leipzig Partizan Belgrade Burnley Atalanta Zenit Feyenoord Bordeaux Olympiakos, etc. .... and just think it's asking a lot to turn things round so quickly and dispatch that level of team.
