  1. THE emotional pull of the 1971 stadium disaster in which 66 people died means that Rangers must never give up the lease of Ibrox. ”THE disaster will never leave me. Never a day goes by that it doesn’t go through my mind. “I still get letters from guys who have never been back to Ibrox for a game since that day. I have taken some of them around the stadium for them to see what it is like now. “The new stadium is, in fact, a testament to those who died. In the trophy room there is a beautiful picture of the old stadium up on the wall. For me it is one of the most important things in
  2. Last Saturday I passed the red lion pub at plantation and seen the supporters bus leaving for the game this is a club that's been going for quite a time anyone know of any clubs that have been going for over twenty years I have great admiration for these clubs and the blokes that run them well done to them all .
  3. A Spain based motor tycoon who wants to buy Rangers is building a £5 million mansion close to Glasgow, The Sunday Post can reveal. Businessman Douglas Park, 64, has submitted plans to erect an eight-bedroom villa near Strathaven, 20 miles from Ibrox. Work is under way on the father-of-three’s new home, which will boast a spiral staircase, home office, gym and steam room as well as a gargantuan master bedroom, according to plans lodged with South Lanarkshire Council. Since separating from wife Isobel in 1999, the tycoon has spent most of his time in Spain. But sources say the car gi
  4. Posted on Facebook by Jim Hannah Dear All, Please all see attached pictures from the IBROX DISASTER MEMORIAL PLINTH; You will notice the face of the Memorial plinth has changed, the brickwork was in such a state of dis-repair, I decided to call in a brick builder to see what was happening and what could be done to resolve the problem. The bricklayer told me the reason the bricks were breaking up, was water had got into the brickwork and when it froze and then expanded the brickwork started to break up. Given some of the conversations I’ve had over the years with some of the families
  5. "The intention will be to settle the absolute minimum with creditors before they can cash their chips and make money off the ground, most supporters thus feel the club may as well go bust so that at least a phoenix team may be able to take the stadium. But the incumbents have a history of doing this at other clubs and are well connected. The club has had 4 chairmen in 6 months as they pass it around dodging winding up orders and pesky owners and directors tests, I'm sure they'll come through this somehow still in possession of whats left of the club. A friend of m
  6. A few of our members and subscribers over the last year or so will remember that an English production company were aiming to put together a feature-length documentary into the experiences of the fans over the last few years coupled with help from various supporters, players and RSCs. I'm pleased to say that after around nine month's work, these efforts are about to be published by way of a 90minute cinema film (and DVD release) over the next month or so. SDMC Productions kindly gave me an opportunity to put together a short review of an early edit of the documentary ahead of the final relea
  7. http://www.gersnet.co.uk/index.php/latest-news/289-is-donald-findlay-right-discussing-our-rangers-addiction Waking up to another Rangers controversy is nothing new. It doesn’t matter if it’s a Monday, a Thursday or a match-day, there’s always another Rangers related story to keep this ongoing farce alive. From the boardroom to the dressing room; from the small grounds in Scotland to the businessmen of Singapore; the bizarre nature of what has happened to one of Scotland’s proudest institutions continues to make waves wherever and whenever you care to cast a sideways glance. It’s impossi

  9. Not sure if it'll benefit us when we do eventually play under the lights of Ibrox in the CL again. http://www.bbc.co.uk/sport/0/football/29562047 One can only hope!
  10. RANGERS today demanded an apology from Livingston over "outrageous and unacceptable" content in their match programme at the weekend. And the Ibrox club will also report their SPFL Championship rivals to the governing body over the "erroneous material". Gers supporters were incensed at two articles which appeared in the programme at the Energy Assets Arena. One story referred to "the club then known as Rangers" playing a game against Hibernian three years ago. It went on to state that "a brand new club" had been established after the old parent company was liquidated back

A number of Light Blues players are in line to represent their respective countries in various matches around the world. It has been deemed enough individuals are expected to be selected for a postponement to be requested and that has been granted by the SPFL.

  15. BC Rangers - led by coach Ricardo Rambo - are confirmed as the 'HKFA Qualifier' and will play in Group C with Manchester City, Rangers and Singapore Cricket Club. The club finished fifth in the 2013/14 First Division ... BC Rangers are the defending Plate champions after going undefeated in all six of their games in 2013, a feat not even achieved by eventual Cup winners Leicester. Rangers finished third in Group D after a scoreless draw with Aston Villa followed 1-1 draws with fellow First Division side Citizen and Kowloon Cricket Club. Rangers routed Southern 5-0 and beat HKFA U-21 on pe
  16. ........and tells how boss kept his wife's miscarriage from him. HUGHES admitted his relationship with Big Jock was strained as he unveiled his autobiography at their spiritual home of Celtic Park. JOCK STEIN is a legend to Celtic and Scotland fans. The former boss is held in reverence at Celtic Park and his statue towers over the stadium’s main approach. But one of Stein’s own players, John Hughes, has launched a bitter attack on the dugout giant. Hughes claims: * Stein kept news of Yogi’s wife’s miscarriage a secret from him. * Forced him out of Celtic at the pe

  19. THERE are certain gifts we all dread receiving at this time of year ... Eric Caldow played in front of 35,000 fans for Rangers on Christmas Day but Rangers fans got possibly the worst present ever on Christmas Day way back in 1965. Their team were edged out 3-2 by visiting Dunfermline at Ibrox in the league. And that painful reverse allowed their Old Firm rivals Celtic to leapfrog them into top spot in the table. Football matches used to be played as normal on Christmas Day if it happened to fall on a Saturday. And Scot Symon's team found themselves up against a formi
  20. I was thinking about our 19 game winning run. UEFA have an interesting article on unbeaten runs. http://www.uefa.com/memberassociations/association=esp/news/newsid=1588768.html I'd forgotten that Celtic had gone on a pretty extensive run about 10 years ago. How much I would love to beat that record and catch the excuses and fallout. You just know it makes sense. Seven to go? Europe's longest winning league runs 29 games – SL Benfica (Portugal) 1971-73 28 games – NK Dinamo Zagreb (Croatia) 2006-06 25 games – Celtic FC (Scotland) 2003-04 22 games – PSV Eindhoven (Nether

Lifted from FF: From the Sun website: SFA boss in Savile twitter bust-up Beast's victim blasts Regan Exclusive By PAUL THORNTON Published: 10 hrs ago A SICKENED victim of Jimmy Savile last night slammed footie blazer Stewart Regan for comparing the Rangers saga to the scandal over the TV pervert. The SFA chief executive’s shocking Twitter gaffe came after a fan asked him about the Ibrox spat between former club supremos Craig Whyte and Charles Green. Regan, 49, bizarrely replied: “Over four decades, many people believed Jimmy Savile was a paedophile. Yet
