  1. RANGERS are poised to make a shock bid for former Hearts striker Andrius Velicka. Record Sport can reveal the Ibrox club will table a s1million offer for the Lithuanian who joined Viking Stavanger in Norway from the Tynecastle club in February. Manager Walter Smith expects to get his man and is also confident the transfer of Kenny Miller will be completed this weekend. Velicka scored 14 goals in 26 games for Hearts last season, including one against Rangers at Ibrox. Smith hopes to land the 27-year-old hitman for around s1m, the same figure that took him to Norway where he scored t
  2. On my way back from a meeting today in Perth, Oz, the taxi driver who picked me up is a fellow bear from Inverness. He is a regular on an other forum but I told him to visit Gersnet. After a chat during the drive he invited to meet me tonight for a few beers, and me being me wont turn that down! Tommy - if you come on - welcome to Gersnet! :cheers: WATP On aside note, we certainly wont be drinking at the hotel bar. It is called ******s Pub - no joke. Its got history behind it from a long time ago and the name has stood for 22 years and obviously some Celtic fans make it a loc
  3. Quite long, but well worth a read....... It was forwarded to me but I believe the source is the Times - I'll try and find a link later... ------------------------------------ (Part 1) Reporter Robert Watt has covered Scottish football for close to thirty years but it was as a Rangers fan he attended last week's UEFA Cup Final in Manchester.

    Part 3

    As always, when Rangers are under attack, the critics play the sectarian card, although it is hard to see what part sectarianism played in any disorder last week. But some just can't resist putting Rangers' Protestant traditions in the firing line, their fans' so-called bigotry and the songs they sing are highlighted, as if a different mindset would induce instant sobriety and a more placid response to a frustrating situation. Big-screens have blanked on numerous occasions in the past, most noteably during the screening of World Cup games in various towns in England, and the reaction of those
  5. Reporter Robert Watt has covered Scottish football for close to thirty years but it was as a Rangers fan he attended last week's UEFA Cup Final in Manchester. What had been a day to remember for all associated with the Ibrox club was only marginally marred by the result of the big match but some incidents of disorder in the city, subsequent exaggeration of the trouble and the ongoing 'spin' from Greater Manchester Police has prompted this heartfelt response. MANCHESTER - THE TRUE STORY The mood was sombre in the car on the way home from Manchester last Thursday. Defeat from
  6. The Waiting Is Over Finally, the waiting is over, the sense of anticipation that has been with us since we defeated Fiorentina in the UEFA Cup semi-final has almost been extinguished. We are less than 48 hours away from witnessing Rangers in a European cup final for the first time in 36 years. This is the moment that we have all been waiting for. A club like Rangers requires to be regulars in the later stages of Europe and for once, we have an achievement to be proud off. I know you will all be like me, shaking like a leaf, unable to eat or sleep thinking of all the permutations in t
  7. About a month ago I wrote a good article (if i dont say so myself) about how the need for the Scottish game to be revamped and how it would benefit as a whole. Some things included were: Restructure of the league format (number of leagues / poss regional) Increased number of top flight teams meaning a few more free weekends Summer Football League Cup played Aug - Octo Etc I also stated that the country had taken a huge stand still in the game with not all of it being our own fault due to TV money in the bigger countries but with the countries top 2 teams doing a very decent job in
  8. Standing On The Edge Of Greatness If like me, you are too young to remember that fabulous night in Barcalona, then you’ll be entering un-chartered waters as our date with destiny hurtles towards us. It is ironic that our foe for the evening will have a couple of familiar faces within its ranks. Dick Advocaat and Fernando Ricksen, whilst not being Rangers heroes do have and deserve places in our rich history and in some of our hearts. It is also ironic that some people, even Rangers fans are claiming that this is one of the worst Rangers teams since that historic evening in Barcelona.
  9. RANGERS today received verbal confirmation from UEFA that the Club can proceed with plans to host a massive UEFA Cup Final event at Ibrox by beaming the match live for supporters on Wednesday 14 May. The Club is throwing open its gates and to hold a party in Glasgow for the thousands of Rangers fans without tickets for the final in Manchester, meaning supporters can experience together the Club's greatest European night since 1972.This will allow families and friends alike to come along and enjoy what could be one of the most memorable nights in the Club's history. Chief Executive Mart
  10. For me im glad we are playing Zenit as IMO it gives us more chance of winning the cup. I know they pumped Bayern in the semi and arent a bad outfit but Bayern have big time players who can step up on the big matches. I think they under estimated Zenit. I also think its a chance for Walter to get one over Advocaat - the man who replaced him!! Its set up for us and Walter to make history!!
  11. I don�t usually submit an article (or rant) on a Friday evening, but the unprecedented happenings of last night have forced me to reflect on The Rangers securing a place in a major European Cup final since 1972. If like me, you are too young to remember that fabulous night in Barcalona, then you�ll be entering un-chartered waters as our date with destiny hurtles towards us. It is ironic that our foe for the evening will have a couple of familiar faces within its ranks. Dick Advocaat and Fernando Ricksen, whilst not being Rangers heroes do have and deserve places in our rich
  12. NEIL ALEXANDER was the spotkick king for Rangers for the second time this season as the Light Blues marched into the UEFA Cup Final. The former Ipswich keeper crucially saved Fabio Liverani's effort in the nail-biting shoot-out and then Christian Vieri blasted over the bar setting up Nacho Novo to clinch it with Rangers' fifth kick. He took the pressure off skipper Barry Ferguson who had missed the first kick and it followed his shootout success in the Scottish Cup semi-final against St Johnstone. He said: "It had crossed my mind a few times this week that the match might go to pen
  13. I think they will be sitting in front of their tv in a fake Fiornentina top from the Barras with a 8 pack of Asda own brand lager (cos its white & Green) Teaching young Bridget and Declan that all the wrong in the world is the fault of those bad men in Red White & Blue while praying to the man in the wee white hat that the Bears dont get through Mon The Rangers 2 games away from another History making European Final

  15. The State Of Play So much has happened recently and its worth taking a few minutes to take stock of the season so far, and look forward to what lies ahead for The Rangers of the coming days and weeks. After a gruelling schedule that has saw us win our first trophy in 3 seasons, we are entering an even more demanding period as the season hurtles towards a its climax. Reflecting on where we are, we are in a very decent position and would have settled for this at the start of the season. Currently, and through this demanding schedules, we have secured a spot in the UEFA Cup Semi-final (no
  16. ALLAN MCGREGOR wrote his name into the history books on March 29 when he became the first Rangers keeper to record four consecutive clean sheets against Celtic but he doesn't want to stop there. Barry Ferguson and Allan McGregor show their thanks to the fansThe club's No. 1 will travel to Parkhead tonight for another crucial clash against Gordon Strachan's men and would love nothing more than to increase his remarkable run to five as Walter Smith's side look to put one hand, or glove for that matter, on the SPL trophy. Keeping Celtic at bay in front of 60,000 fans in green and white is
  17. That Was The Week That Was As we motor into the business end of the season, it gets tougher and tougher to dismantle the previous weeks results and performances, and I don�t know about you, but you require a degree in statistical analysis to understand and programme what games we have pending in any given week. Hence, please forgive me if my memory plays tricks on me and I review the wrong bloody week! Last week saw us chalked up two consecutive 2-0 away victories and whilst both were welcome, one did outshine the other. Looking for words to describe our performance in Lisbon is
  18. when jane was getting to know tarzan she asked him about his sexual history, "tarzan only ever have sex with hole in tree" he said, "oh tarzan you have it all wrong i'll show you the proper way," so jane takes off her clothes lies on the ground and says "u got to stick it in here", tarzan looked puzzled for a minute, then gave jane a mighty kick in the fanny. screaming jane shouts "what the �£uck did you do that for". "tazan check for bees first"
  19. It just doesn't want to go away..... WS would be committing club suicide if we bought him again.
  20. Rangers Football Club has today become the first UK-based club to join Superleague Formula - an exciting, new motorsport championship which kicks off at the Donington Park racing circuit in August. Rangers - the last British side remaining in the UEFA Cup this season - will be the sole Scottish representative on the Superleague Formula grid and will compete against AC Milan, PSV Eindhoven, FC Porto, Olympiacos, Borussia Dortmund, RSC Anderlecht, FC Basel, Galatasaray SK and Sevilla plus Brazilian greats Flamengo and Corinthians in the six round championship later this year. The Cl
  21. ---------------------------Time------------TV Motherwell v Celtic---------12:30-----------Setanta Sports Aberdeen v Gretna---------15:00 Hibernian v Kilmarnock------15:00 Inverness CT v Falkirk------15:00 St Mirren v Hearts----------15:00 Celtic travel to Fir park to have another crack at moving to the top of the league. With goal difference being exactly equal a 1-0 win will be enough for them to go top,with Rangers having two games in hand. Rangers will be playing in the CIS cup final on Sunday. Motherwell have played some of the best football in the SPL a
  22. Saturday BPL: Blackburn v Fulham: Fulham need 3 points to have any chance of staying up. With the clubs above them finding a bit of form they could see a gap opening up which would be too big to claw back. Personally I think they are down but the Premier League is a funny game at times, West Ham produced an amazing comeack this time last year - Can Fulham do the same? Blackburn are pushing for europe and Mark Hughes side go abot there business quietly and can match up to any team in their day. They stole 3 points at Newcastle last week in the 92nd minute and they should get another 3 today
  23. Happy birthday, gaffer! Exclusive by Lindsay Herron WALTER SMITH should probably be cautious when he goes into the dressing room on Sunday ahead of the Gretna game - if he has learned anything in nearly 30 years of dealing with Ally McCoist. Walter is 60 on Sunday and there is bound to some form of high jinks with people like McCoist and partner in crime Ian Durrant about! Ally McCoist, Walter Smith and Kenny McDowallThe two of them were the kings of the Rangers dressing room in Smith's first period in charge and when he was assistant to Graeme Souness. Now they are his val
