  1. Jamie Carragher believes Rangers title win would only be beaten by Champions League glory night in Istanbul for boss Steven Gerrard Sport 28 mins ago Jamie Carragher believes Rangers title win would only be beaten by Champions League glory night in Istanbul for boss Steven Gerrard By Christopher Jack @Chris_Jack89Group Senior Sports Writer Steven Gerrard turned out for both Rangers and Liverpool during the Legends match at Ibrox on Saturday THE Miracle of Istanbul will always stand alone as the greatest night, the greatest achievement, in Steven Gerrard’s glittering career. But Jamie Carragher believes there would be a new entry at number two on the list should his former Liverpool team-mate lead Rangers to title glory this term. It is 14 years since Gerrard inspired the Reds to their fifth European crown and ensured his name would forever be enshrined in Anfield folklore. A similar fate would await at Ibrox if the 39-year-old could end Rangers’ long wait for league and cup silverware and a fanbase that already have huge admiration for their boss would hold him in even higher regard. Gerrard played down the achievement of his side moving top of the table earlier this month. If Rangers are still there come the end of the campaign, it would undoubtedly go down as one of his proudest moments in the game. “I think it will be right up there, I really do,” Carragher, a member of the side that beat AC Milan on penalties, said. “Because it is not a title that is expected in some ways. “There is no doubt that Celtic probably have the edge in terms of the squad, financially also. They have the belief that they almost win the league every year. I think Celtic have a lot of advantages that Rangers don’t have. “But I think they will do it this year. I have seen in some of the European and Old Firm games how the crowd and the atmosphere has been. You think there is something bubbling here at Rangers. “I know myself from Liverpool how it feels when the manager has the crowd and the players pulled together. It feels like that at Rangers when I watch them. I think, for him, it is probably difficult to top that (Istanbul), really. But I think it would maybe be a close second or certainly in there and about. “It would be the first title he had won as a manager if he pulled it off. That would be massive. Also, it would be stopping Celtic on the run they are on – when Celtic have a bigger budget and are seen as the more successful team, the favourites going into many games.” Rangers may be in pole position in the title race but many will still see Celtic as the ones to beat. The momentum that Gerrard’s side have built in recent weeks was temporarily halted by the international break but the Gers have a chance to pick up where they left off when they face Hearts at Tynecastle this weekend. Carragher got his own taste of Rangers last Saturday as he turned out in the Legends game at Ibrox and the 41-year-old got a feeling of what Gerrard is building both on and off the park these days. “It’s a huge driver for a team,” he said of the unity between Gerrard’s side and the Rangers fans at present. “You look at the amount of goals Rangers have scored in games at Ibrox this season and you know something is happening. “I know myself that European games have a better atmosphere than a regular 3pm game on a Saturday. But, even then, you look at some of the celebrations. “I now follow Rangers on Twitter, so I see all the videos and different things of Steven and the players celebrating a big result. There is a togetherness there. “It was a big thing for Rangers to get into the Europa League group stage. That got them a few quid and probably gave them the means to go and get Ryan Kent just before the window closes. Fingers crossed, he can push on even further now. “He definitely has that [no-nonsense style]. We all know the personality and character he had as a player. You can’t go on and kick someone from the bench, but you can imagine the messages Steven delivers and the way he delivers them to the players on a daily basis. “He will be putting a bit of himself into those players. That’s what great managers do.” Gerrard was left with no silverware to show for his efforts during his first term at Ibrox as Celtic swept the board once again. But Carragher believes there will be a far stronger challenge across the Old Firm divide after an encouraging start to the campaign. He said: “I think he has done brilliantly, absolutely fantastic. He has obviously put Rangers in a position this year where I think there is going to be a real challenge for the title. Hopefully for him, because he is my big mate, he can stop 10-in-a-row. I know it is nine-in-a-row this year, but just to stop that sort of that run. I was a big Celtic man more than Rangers, I must say, but that has had to change since Stevie got the job. “He has done really well. When he took it, people were saying Rangers were miles behind Celtic. They bridged some of the gap last season and beat them in a couple of Old Firm games. The fact they lost the first Old Firm game this season and are still top of the league shows how consistent they have been. It will be really tight and that’s brilliant for Scottish football. “I am not really surprised, because of who he is. He wouldn’t take short-cuts. He is a massive name and a lot of people in his position might think they don’t need to do coaching courses or whatever. But he does it properly. He just has that stature. He is Steven Gerrard. When he walks into a room, you feel that presence. “You could feel the connection he has with the supporters even during the Legends game. He has got the crowd in the palm of his hand and I’m sure it will be the same in the dressing room.
  2. I don’t give a penny to those who tried to kill us. My decision, you’re obviously free to do what you wish.
  3. Four arrested, including two boys, over Govan march disorder 6 hours ago Share this with Facebook Share this with Messenger Share this with Twitter Share this with Email Share Image copyright @JohnAitken90 Four people, including two schoolboys, have been arrested following disorder at a republican demonstration in Glasgow. The large-scale disturbance, which led to riot police being called in, happened in Govan on 30 August. Two boys, aged 14 and 15 and two men, aged 20 and 30, were arrested on Friday and later released to appear at court at a later date. Officers have been gathering CCTV and carrying out door-to-door inquiries. 'Gathering intelligence' Det Insp Peter Sharp said: "These arrests are testament to our relentless pursuit of bringing to justice those responsible for carrying out large-scale disorder in the streets of Govan. "Officers have been working tirelessly in the community, gathering intelligence and reviewing CCTV footage to reveal the perpetrators of this campaign of disorder. "We will not stop until every one of them is identified, charged and brought to justice and I hope these arrests send an unequivocal message of our intent and our commitment to our communities." Image copyright @JustShelbyMay He added: "I would like to use today's progress as an opportunity to thank the public for their contribution into this investigation and to re-appeal to them for more information. "Even if you think the information or mobile footage you have might not be of use, get in touch and let us make that decision for you." Police Scotland has set up a dedicated and confidential email address OperationPindot@scotland.pnn.police.uk for the public to send information, video footage or photographs relating to the incident. Riot police, mounted officers, a helicopter and dog units were called in following the Irish Unity march and counter protest in Glasgow. The planned march through Govan, by the James Connolly Republican Flute Band, was met by hundreds of "disruptive" counter demonstrators.

  5. Support for Scottish independence rises to 50 per cent according to new poll The survey also found more respondents than not believe the Scottish economy would be better off with independence in the EU than in the UK after Brexit. ByLaura Paterson 09:18, 13 OCT 2019 NEWS Just over 1,000 voters were asking about Scottish independence in the poll (Image: REUTERS) Support for Scottish independence has risen to 50 per cent, according to a new poll . The Panelbase survey for The Sunday Times Scotland also found more respondents than not believe the Scottish economy would be better off with independence in the EU than in the UK after Brexit. The 50 per cent figure backing independence marks a five point increase on the 45 per cent Panelbase registered on average in its polls last year, which mirrored the 45 per cent yes 55 per cent no result of the 2014 independence referendum. It is up on the 49 per cent recorded in the paper's last poll in June and is a record high for its regular Panelbase polls on the issue. Given a choice between a no-deal Brexit and an independent Scotland, there was a 54-46 lead for independence, up two points since April. The poll of 1,003 voters in Scotland carried out between Wednesday and Friday found 45 per cent of people believe Scotland will be better off economically as an independent country within the EU rather than staying in the UK after Brexit. Just over a third (35 per cent) disagreed while one in five (20 per cent) said they did not know. The findings were released on the morning of the SNP's autumn conference in Aberdeen, where the party's Westminster leader is expected to tell delegates Scottish independence will be the focus of any forthcoming general election campaign. He will say that retaining the party's majority of Scottish seats at Westminster will re-affirm the mandate to hold another referendum on Scottish independence. The poll indicates large gains for the SNP at the next general election, with the party on 39 per cent, up one percentage point since June. The Conservatives are also predicted to gain at 21 per cent, up three percentage points since June, while Labour are on 19 per cent, up two. The Liberal Democrats are unchanged on 13 per cent and the Greens unchanged on 2 per cent, while the Brexit Party was on 5 per cent, down four percentage points since June. Sir John Curtice, professor of politics at Strathclyde University, told the paper the Conservatives face losing more than half of their Scottish seats. He calculates the SNP will win 48 seats - up from 35 at the 2017 general election - with the Scottish Tories falling from 13 to five, Labour from seven to one, and the Lib Dems rising from four to five.
  6. Not a rugby fan but I thought it was a professional game nowadays? To not have a contingency for moving or postponing to another day is amateurish in the extreme. Can you imagine that happening in Football or any other sport.
  7. This makes me laugh, they same fans will be clamouring to get tickets for Hampden.
  8. Rangers: Scottish FA to discuss Dave King's 'fit & proper' status By Chris McLaughlin BBC Scotland sports news correspondent 1 hour ago From the sectionRangers Sharethis page Dave King said his actions were found to be done 'solely for the love of the club' Rangers chairman Dave King's status as "fit and proper" will be discussed by the Scottish FA at their next board meeting after he was sanctioned by the Takeover panel. King has been punished for committing an offence of the "utmost gravity" in his takeover of the Ibrox club in 2015. Rangers are now officially obliged to alert Scottish football's governing body after King was "cold-shouldered" for four years, meaning UK financial firms are barred from working with him on other takeovers. It is only the fourth time such a sanction - which is only applied to King and not to Rangers - has been issued by the Takeover Panel in its 50-year history. The Takeover Panel judgment said that "a statement of public censure would not be a sufficient sanction". King, who chose not to appeal against the punishment, said his actions were found to be done "solely for the love of the club". King will not have to fulfil £8m offer No further legal action threat for King In a statement on the Rangers website, he added that the Scottish Premiership outfit would not suffer as a result of the judgement. "RIFC and Rangers Football Club are not affected by the Hearings Committee's ruling and the ruling does not impact upon my position as chairman and a director of RIFC," he said. "This now allows myself, RIFC and its shareholders to draw a line under this long and much protracted saga. "Rangers supporters already know that my problems with the Takeover Panel arose directly as a result of the steps I took to protect and safeguard Rangers Football Club from the forces that were bent on destroying it at that time." South Africa-based businessman King was deemed to have acted "in concert" with George Letham, George Taylor and Douglas Park to acquire more than 30% of Rangers shares. Legislation dictates that those holding a 30% stake in businesses are compelled to make an offer to other shareholders to buy their stock. Having been threatened with contempt of court after a long delay, King made an unsuccessful 20p-per-share offer to buy remaining shares in the club in March. However, the Takeover Panel continued its own disciplinary procedures and found that King had failed to inform them of his share purchase, as required by law. It also deemed that he provided "incorrect and misleading answers" during the investigation, and mislead the Panel when a share offer was eventually made. "Mr King's behaviour shows a clear propensity to disregard the Code and to comply with its rules only when forced to do so by enforcement proceedings in the courts," read the ruling.
  9. Things are looking good at present on the financial front, we have people in control who are Rangers fans and business men. Everything looks rosy, just the same as most fans thought during the reign of SDM. Club1872 should be concentrating on financing share purchases at every opportunity. It looks to me that the board of Club1872 are looking for things to do to to justify their position.
  10. RangersFC SLO @RangersFCSLO · Supporters will be able to pay at the gate for tomorrow’s Legends game. Tickets for the game are priced at just £15 for adults and £10 for concessions and £5 for juniors and supporters will be able to pay at the gate in the Copland Rear. Turnstiles will be open from 13:30.
  11. Apart from the Green Party are there others who say they wish to impose new work parking fees? I assume Labour will not renew their policy from last local elections.
