  1. THE reason for the delay in Rangers publishing their half-yearly figures is ,there are those on the Ibrox board who quite simply do not trust Lloyds. However, I believe that recent top level talks with the new men at the top of Lloyds will see Rangers release the figures this week. It surprises me that not much has been made of what has been going on at Lloyds' top table in the last month. For the fact is that since the last update on the power struggle on the Ibrox board, and my revelations about why the half yearly accounts had not been published, there have been massive changes
  2. I really doubt Ally would say to any possible future boss to put up or shut up. It would be very stupid if he did.
  3. By Glenn Gibbons This column owns up to a long-standing struggle to understand the difference between a supporters' "trust" and an old-fashioned supporters' "club". Apart, that is, from the former's curious and misguided belief that the fortunes of the football club of their favour would increase dramatically were they allowed to take a hand in its affairs. The notion of planting a "fan" on the board has always seemed something of an insult to the sitting directors, with its implication that they are not themselves fans. This point is usually countered with the claim that they are referring
  4. By Tom English in Eindhoven IF MARTIN Bain, the Rangers chief executive, managed to suppress any cynicism he may have had at the Holyrood summit on Tuesday then the club captain, David Weir, wasn't nearly as cagey when Rangers arrived in Eindhoven for today's Europa League tie against PSV. Weir described the furore that has built up around the Old Firm in the wake of the so-called "Shame Game" against Celtic as nonsense and dismissed the idea that the fixture would ever get played behind closed doors, as some in the police have intimated. "It will never happen," said Weir. "It is the pr
  5. The RST finally says something worthwhile ..... has there been another night of the long knives and real Rangers supporters have taken over.... Copied from post on VB The Board of the Rangers Supporters’ Trust offers unequivocal backing for Martin Bain, the Rangers Chief Executive, in his attempt to bring some sanity and balance to hysterical nonsense around the Scottish Cup tie on 2 March at Celtic Park. We also have serious concerns about Neil Ginger-toothed Bigot’s actions in the first half of this game* and cannot understand why no action was taken against Ginger-toothed Bigot e
  6. http://www.rangerssupporterstrust.co.uk/rstsite/latest-rst-news/375-rst-backs-bain-and-calls-for-sfa-investigation-into-lennons-conduct?utm_source=twitterfeed&utm_medium=twitter So, question must be asked - did Calum Murray include these incidents in his report and, if so, why did Stewart Regan not act upon them last month? Increasingly likely that SFA is being compromised by incompetence at all levels here.
  7. BAD boy El-Hadji Diouf should be booted out of Rangers following his Old Firm red card shame. That's the view of Express Sport columnist and Celtic and Scotland legend Charlie Nicholas. Diouf was involved in bust-ups with Celts boss Neil Lennon and the Hoops skipper Scott Brown during the Light Blues' 1-0 Scottish Cup fifth round replay loss at Parkhead. The Senegalese striker was also accused of clashing with the home physio Tim Williamson before being sent-off after the final whistle by referee Calum Murray for dissent. Diouf threw his shirt into the away end at time-up, but Nic
  8. RANGERS Football Club issued the following statement after First Minister Alex Salmond and Strathclyde Police announced that a summit will be held next week to discuss events surrounding recent Old Firm matches. Chief Executive Martin Bain said: "At Rangers we have spent the day looking closely at the events of last night and the widespread comments expressed. "When the First Minister and I spoke today I said we would willingly take part in the summit and welcomed the opportunity to discuss matters surrounding these fixtures 'frankly and openly'. Martin Bain at the AGM"At the summi
  9. Our current situation - It's time to face the inevitable then rebuild for the future. When you drill down to it, The Rangers support, to a man, has known at the back of its collective mind that the situation we are in is dire. Many of us will be in agreement that we�ve been urinating into the proverbial wind for 3 years yet miraculously, we have managed to avoid getting wet. Sooner or later, the stranglehold that being owned by Sir David Murray has placed us under was always going to come close to killing us. I say Sir David Murray rather than Lloyds bank specifically, as our
  10. Looks like we will receive some money from a Charlie Adam transfer, also Smith hopeful he can use any money we get for Miller. http://www.eveningtimes.co.uk/sport/editor-s-picks/maurice-edu-we-can-cope-without-kenny-miller-1.1079256 Maurice Edu today insisted Rangers can still retain the SPL title ââ?¬â?? as top scorer Kenny Miller gets ready to leave for Fiorentina. The 22-goal hitman, who has rejected terms on a new contract, had been targeted by Birmingham in a Ã?£650,000 deal, but looks set to snub Alex McLeish and move to Serie A by the end of this week. Miller has
  11. http://www.heraldscotland.com/sport/spl/rangers/michael-grant-on-monday-1.1082711 The first suggestion was that Craig Whyte might be able to rush through a takeover and own Rangers in time for Christmas. Then he supposedly wanted to have the reins in time for the January transfer window so he could plough in some funds for signings and an enhanced contract offer to Kenny Miller. Christmas is over, Miller is away, the window closes at 11pm tonight, and still there is no Whyte. Not a peep has been heard and sources have said nothing is likely to change. It is now 74 days since the story
  12. Cast your mind back ten years to season 2000/2001. Ronald de Boer signed from Barcelona; Tore Andre Flo signed for a transfer fee that will never be matched in Scotland; and a squad containing names such as Amoruso, van Bronckhorst and Klos - we could even afford to let Andrei Kanchelskis go on loan to the EPL and Man City for half a season. This was the start of a new decade under the continuing custodianship of David Murray - where he summed up his personality and ambition at the time with one simple quote from 2000 - "For every five pounds Celtic spend, we will spend ten". Most
  13. Borrowed from another forum Exclusive June 7th 2010. A few weeks ago I spoke with Rangers chief executive Martin Bain. He kindly took my call on a Saturday morning just after his ladââ?¬â?¢s football match. I told him that I was a freelance journalist commissioned to do a story for the News of the World. After exchanging some jokes about the perils of being, as I termed it, ââ?¬Å?a maddie at your boyââ?¬â?¢s fitba matchââ?¬Â I had to tell Martin Bain some bad news. I informed him that this journalist already knew that Rangers had received a bill from the taxman for Ã?£24 mill
  14. The past few years we've been fed all sorts of stories from the press, online 'sources' and the club itself regarding our financial position We've had Ellis then Whyte look seemingly close to a deal. only for both to disappear like it never happened. The past two seasons Walter has publicly stated the bank runs Rangers, yet we've been told by the club we have a minimum payment that's easily within our grasp. Now January comes, our top scorer is sold and there's no sign of the squad being strengthened. Last year, financially, was a good year with the debt going down and profit posted. This
  15. You may be interested to read the following post from Vanguardbears ... the poster himself is an impeccable source ... Good Bear I know has been in my work having a chat in the last hour. This bloke comes from Barrhead and grew up beside Donald Muir and was his guest at the Hamilton game last week. I've been told that Muir is as big a Bluenose as anyone can be and is doing all in his power to ensure Rangers are sold and back on the straight and narrow. When asked if the takeover was ever going to happen, apparently Muir said, the hold up was all concerning the tax problems Murray left us with
  16. A year or so ago we had Boyd and Miller, a good partnership, playing very well and linking well together. Who would have thought two of our best performing first team players would be gone for practically nothing? It is hard to imagine what price the pair were worth, but combined you would have to say they were worth 5-6m+ and maybe considerably more. I would hazard a guess that Boyd could have generated 4-5 million (when he had more time on his contract remaining), considering interest from England. Then considering Miller performing at a bigger club, he surely would have been worth at least
  17. From the official site. Surely the money could've been spent more wisely.
  18. Telegraph.co.uk Blame the bank, says Rangers manager Walter Smith as he looks for his players to bounce back from defeat Rangers manager Walter Smith believes that Lloyds Banking Group constitutes a bigger threat to his club�s chances of winning a third successive title than Neil Lennon�s Celtic. They may trail their Old Firm rivals by four points after losing 2-0 to them at Ibrox last weekend but Smith is in no doubt that the financial constraints he is being forced to work under can only undermine Rangers� prospects of triumphing at home and abroad. Smith, who
  19. BBC. The sooner this guys signs a new contract the better. He's a no nonsense, steady Eddie player who has performed well over the last few seasons.
  20. http://www.dailyrecord.co.uk/2010/12/26/rangers-could-face-double-blow-as-bougherra-and-papac-hint-at-summer-moves-86908-22807619/ Papac has not even been offered a contract and a player who has served us well and is possiby worth a few million may leave for nothing. No wonder Lloyds are so hard on us considering how incompetent we are financially. We're terrible at selling players and contract negotiations
  21. BIRMINGHAM CITY boss Alex McLeish is set to launch a sensational swoop for Rangers star Kenny Miller. Ibrox money man Martin Bain insisted recently that the club would not be forced to sell the in-form frontman during the January transfer window - despite contract talks having broken down. Rangers boss Walter Smith is still hopeful a new deal can be struck but McLeish could make a cut-price offer of �£1million when the window opens. It would be interesting then to see whether the Lloyds Banking Group would insist on a sale as Miller could go for nothing when his contract expires
  22. From the official site, more bullshit from the cowards running Rangers..... RANGERS Football Club today repeated its warning to supporters not to engage in any sectarian singing at its fixtures. The club is at serious risk of punishment by footballing authorities if sectarian behavior is in evidence among its fans. This includes the singing of songs such as the Billy Boys, which is banned by UEFA, and the Famine Song, which has led to people being arrested and convicted in the past. Ahead of tomorrow's match against Inverness Caledonian Thistle, Northern Constabulary have confi
  23. Has it really been almost a month since news broke of the proposed Whyte consortium takeover? Amongst the tepid stickiness of premature welcomes and the excitement of tabloid transfer war-chests, as ever there was minimal meat on the bones of this story from the outset. And there's even less now as we approach Christmas, the suggested date of deal conclusion from those 'club insiders' that are oft-quoted but rarely named. Of course we've been down this road before over the last year or so. From Graham Duffy (the alleged fan buyout champ), to Dave King (the alleged financial innocent), t
  24. I am utterly amazed that no one anywhere has mentioned the elephant in Celtic's boardroom, or Glasgow Celtic to give them their proper name, not Belfast not Dublin, not Letterkenny, just Glasgow Celtic. Glasgow Celtic appear to be selective in their appraisal of that which is acceptable and non acceptable religious discrimination, will they ask the Catholic or rather Roman Catholic church to call for the sacking of Zander Diamond and others, who used sectarian expressions to convey very public jokes, about Protestants. However my main point is that Glasgow Celtic practise the religious
