  1. The Gibson Street Festival in Glasgow had been running for a number of years so back in 2012 we decided to hire a stall to promote our wonderful Founders/Rangers story which of course is an integral part of the history of Glasgow, additionally Founder Peter McNeil had lived on Gibson Street for a few years.The stall was hugely popular, we sold a lot of Trail tickets,gave out information on the history of our Club and raised a lot of money for charity. Just prior to the 2013 event I was asked to a meeting with the organisers who informed me that they were withdrawing our stall as they’d received a couple of calls and emails stating that the Festival shouldn’t be linked with “a sectarian organisation such as Rangers”. I laughed, then quickly realised they were serious so in turn I advised the event planners to expect a busy couple of days and to keep their office phone switched on. I posted the news around that we were being banned and sure enough a tsunami of rage hit them that hard that they rang me and asked me to get people to stop calling and emailing them. The Evening Times then got involved, ran the story which prompted the much larger West End Festival organisers to step in and offer us a stall at their event which we gladly accepted. So, thanks to the bitter, twisted mind of the Tims our stall at the 2013 and 2014 West End Festival raised three times the amount of money for the Founders Trail via ticket and merchandise sales and also a load of cash for charity. Everyone likes a happy ending. ? who is superman in man of steel who is superman in man of steel

  2. I'd love Rangers to turn down future allocations for all the clubs who voted No or abstained. I realise this won't happen and understand why people would disagree but it'd be the ultimate "Up yours!".

  5. Of course they don’t. Do you think that’s what they’re doing? What is the value to a child of three months education? Can a period of that length ever be made up? Pointless debate anyway because teachers aren’t going back ‘til they’ve had their summer holidays.

  6. Curiouser and curiouser. It's like a (ahem) Matryoshka doll. From today's Times: Ex-Sputnik editor charged over ‘menacing’ Salmond accuser clip Thursday May 14 2020, 12.01am, The Times Law https://www.thetimes.co.uk/edition/scotland/ex-sputnik-editor-charged-over-menacing-salmond-accuser-clip-ghpqnjgtk?utm_source=newsletter&utm_campaign=newsletter_119&utm_medium=email&utm_content=119_9404512&CMP=TNLEmail_118918_9404512_119 Two men have now been charged with offences related to the Alex Salmond trial A former UK editor-in-chief of the Kremlin propaganda outlet Sputnik has been arrested in connection with the Alex Salmond trial. Mark Hirst, 50, is the second person to face charges since Mr Salmond was cleared in March of 13 charges of sex offences against nine women. The journalist, film-maker and former SNP official was arrested and questioned after he released a video saying that the women who complained about Mr Salmond would “reap a whirlwind”. Police said he had been charged after a “reported menacing communication”. The action against Mr Hirst came after The Times revealed that another Salmond supporter, the former UK diplomat Craig Murray, had been charged with contempt of court over blog posts he published before, during and after the Salmond trial. A fierce supporter of Mr Salmond, Mr Hirst regards the former first minister’s successor Nicola Sturgeon as a “traitor coward”. In a video released yesterday Mr Hirst offered no details of the case against him. However, he said that his arrest amounted to a threat to “our very basic rights and freedom of expression and civil liberties”. Citing Mr Murray’s case, he added: “Authorities in Scotland, following the verdict in the Alex Salmond trial, are now actively pursuing those independence supporters who publicly backed him.” Mr Hirst launched an appeal yesterday to raise £20,000 for his defence. Mr Murray has also been fundraising. A Police Scotland spokeswoman said: “Following an investigation into reported menacing communication, a 50-year-old man has been arrested and charged and will be the subject of a report to the procurator fiscal. Proceedings are active, therefore it would be inappropriate to comment.” It is not known whether either man has applied for legal aid. A man who was discharged from the jury on the last day of Mr Salmond’s trial will face no further legal action, the Crown Office said. He was removed for failing to comply with orders from Lady Dorrian, the judge.

  7. I will say just one thing today: When the MPs re-assemble in parliament without social distancing, then we will know for sure that it is safe to venture outside. They have no right to make our children their guinea pigs. Simples as they say.

  9. Now according to the WHO this virus is going to be around for a considerable time until a vaccine is found , i take what this lot say with a pinch of salt as they have come across like apologists for the Chinese government. Now the death total stands in the region of 300,000 worldwide and that's not taking into account the true figures from most countries.

  16. Doncaster is liewell’s puppet in the SPFL. He does as instructed. The Celtc cabal running the SPFL are determined to award Celtc the title(despite there being 8 games left & a £10m liability) and don’t give a damn about the other consequences of relegating clubs as a result. This fight must go on

  19. AT A TIME when we should all be looking forward to celebrating the start of our 150th anniversary, Stranraer FC have found ourselves thrust into the media spotlight for all the wrong reasons. Particularly at an unprecedented time of distress for nations across the globe, this ongoing situation should certainly not have brought such adverse scrutiny. The SPFL resolution that has been the subject of much debate which ultimately condemned both ourselves and Partick Thistle to what we felt was an unjust relegation. As you will all be fully aware, on Tuesday there was an EGM of all SPFL clubs that was initially requested by Rangers FC, Heart of Midlothian FC and Stranraer FC whereupon, we called for an independent enquiry into what we collectively felt was a genuine grievance concerning the due governance of our game. We have consistently stated that the original resolution was fundamentally flawed, therefore we wanted to allow for a comprehensive investigation to source true learning outcomes from the process to date. Ultimately, we failed to get sufficient numbers to carry the day however, 13 (thirteen) clubs from all levels of our game did vote to what they considered to be cause for concern, with a desire to highlight failings of a proper process at board level. There have been various persons suggesting that a line is now drawn on this matter, and we subsequently now move on for the greater good of the game. If I may state, this is an extremely easy analysis to arrive at when you have no concerns, nor were adversely affected by actions of recent decisions. I make no apologies for the fact that it is not in my nature to concede all too easily, or indeed remain silent, nor accept any decision that I feel is unjust towards our football club - a club that I am extremely proud to serve as chairman. As such, I intend, with the full backing of my committee, to explore all avenues in order to properly redress, with fellow likeminded clubs to achieve what I believe is the righting of wrongs on so many fronts.
