  1. https://iainduff.wordpress.com/2012/04/19/when-the-rangers-came-to-wolverhampton-town/ When The Rangers came to iWolverhampton Town APRIL 19, 2012 / IAIN DUFF From all over Scotland they came with their Union Flags and Scottish standards. Soaked to the bone from the torrential rain, 10,000 of them paraded through the streets of Wolverhampton. Despite the weather, many were without coats, but they didn’t care. All they wanted to do was enjoy their day away from home and see their team win. Their red, white and blue flags and banners that brightened the grey skies protected them from the elements anyway. The locals – bemused and amused in equal measure – may not have recognised the songs and chants, but they would surely have appreciated the passion with which they were delivered. The battle cry of ‘We are the people’ echoed off the red-brick buildings as the procession wound its way through the town centre. It had started early in the morning as the first trains rumbled into the station. By lunchtime, office workers were abandoning their desks and lining the streets to watch the show. In return, the Scots bellowed their anthems: ‘There’s not a team like the Glasgow Rangers’ and ‘We will follow on’. They broke into The National Anthem, and were met with spontaneous applause from the bystanders. It may have resembled an army, but there was nothing hostile about this invading force. There was alcohol consumed of course, and plenty were in high spirits, but no-one embarrassed themselves or their compadres. It was simply a display of passion and devotion to a football team that was then, and remains to this day, more than a just a club. On the streets of this industrial Midlands town, they were celebrating a way of life. ‘The supporters were parading up the streets about ten abreast, waving flags and banners,’ Rangers defender Harold Davis recalled. ‘It was fantastic. They stopped the whole city; there were thousands of people there.’ April 19th 1961. That was the day The Rangers came to Wolverhampton town. Three weeks earlier, Wolves had visited Glasgow for the first leg of the battle for a place in the European Cup Winners Cup final.......https://iainduff.wordpress.com/2012/04/19/when-the-rangers-came-to-wolverhampton-town/

  3. https://t.co/XIMZtF3NTt RANGERS notes Hibernian’s decision to cut our supporters’ ticket allocation for the final match of the Scottish Premiership season at Easter Road on Sunday, May 13. First and foremost Rangers hopes the safety of our fans, who will now be in only one section of the South Stand rather than filling it completely, will not be compromised by this decision, which beggars belief. This is the least Rangers expects for supporters who have repeatedly proven themselves to be the most loyal in the country by selling out away ticketing allocations at opposition stadiums for years. This was evident as we rose through the divisions when clubs the length and breadth of the country, including Hibernian, benefitted financially from the presence of our fans. Rangers will of course bear in mind Hibernian’s decision when considering ticketing arrangements for future matches – both home and away – against this particular club.

  6. September 1, 2017 Over the past few days various images have appeared online claiming to be Rangers' kits for this season. A number of Twitter accounts have posted fake kits and one such picture even prompted the Scottish Sun to run misleading, clickbait stories two days running. We like to cut through the bullshit here, so below is the actual kit situation. Home - The home kit will remain as it is. There will be no new home kit this season although stock of replica kit will hopefully be in the megastore prior to Christmas. Away - The red away kit worn at the game against Ross County is the new away kit. Who would have guessed it! Again, stock should appear in the megastore before Christmas. Any image that appears online claiming to be a different away kit is a fake. Third Kit - A black, third kit will also be produced and should be available for purchase prior to Christmas. All quite simple and in line with what Rangers told fans when the Sports Direct situation was resolved. We are not entirely sure why a publication like the Sun couldn't verify that images they carried were fake but that might not have got as many people clicking on their stories across the past two days....
