  1. Just wondering if anyone's heard anything about Steve Simonsen staying or leaving? I get the impression that he wants to stay, but that he didn't know whether he would be staying or leaving a few weeks ago. Then he was sent out to play for us in the Hong Kong Soccer Sevens.....
  2. Lifted from their page: I am still of the opinion that we will NOT go in to admin and that Laxey will give us another loan but this time against Auchenhowie training centre. I have, since Friday, been hearing the same rumours that others have been no doubt hearing and I will be investigating them this week. Some reliable sources say we will be in admin before season starts in a way to get high earners off wage bill and others claim the training ground will be getting sold outright before this happens. Both of these rumours are a concern due to the quality of sources and I shall seek to prove them right or wrong. Anyone with info regarding these rumours please feel free to contact me confidentially via personal message
  3. Announcement: Gersnet and WATP Magazine link up with a new monthly Gersnet column We are delighted to announce that from this summer a monthly Gersnet column will now be featured in WATP Magazine - the only A4 sized monthly magazine by Rangers fans, for Rangers fans.

  4. SATURDAY 24TH MAY. CELEBRATION AND PROTEST We have been asked by many fans to arrange some protests during the close season and as 24th May is the anniversary of the clubs greatest victory in Barcelona 1972, we have made arrangements for the Louden Tavern at the stadium to show a re run of the game from 1.00pm At 3.00pm we will be marching to the stadium for a 30 min protest and a petition to hand in and explain why the fans wont renew season tickets or indeed buy new ones. We require as many fans as possible to turn up as a show of numbers would be vital for the success of the protest Fans are asked to meet up at the Louden between 1.00 and 2.30 to give us adequate time to make final arrangements with fans Can I ask all to share at usual places and feeback to me with expected number which will allow me to notify Louden and make necessary arrangements. We are planning on some other things for Saturday and will announce them once we have confirmed Thanks Craig.
  5. I am in Mallorca at the moment, and was devestated at yesterday's news reference the Glasgow School of Art. Perhaps the club might utilise a bit of foresight and organise a Friendly to rase funds for repair. Hstorically, Rangers have a good track record in this regard. Maybe Atletico Bilbao with their modern art footprint?

  8. Support from the above on keeping Ibrox and Auchenhowie, while some of our own dither. http://www.eveningtimes.co.uk/rangers/rangers-fans-backed-by-leeds-support-for-board-battle-164353n.24280107 RANGERS fans were today urged not to give up the fight to hold on to Ibrox and Murray Park as animosity grows towards the under-fire Light Blues board. The call came from Gary Cooper, chairman of the Leeds United Supporters Trust, who have fought a series of hierarchies in Yorkshire as the club have fallen from grace in recent years. United's Thorp Arch training centre was sold off for £4.2million a decade ago while their Elland Road home was hived off in a sale and leaseback agreement just weeks later as the club battled for survival. The Rangers Union of Fans have launched a bid to pool season ticket money this summer that will see cash only handed over to the Gers board once security has been granted over Ibrox. A meeting between the group and board last week failed to reach a settlement, with fears growing among supporters that their Murray Park base could be sold to raise much-needed funds. Leeds have never fully recovered from the disastrous Peter Ridsdale era and fans' chief Cooper has issued a rallying call to the Light Blue legions to play their part in safeguarding Rangers' biggest assets. He told SportTimes: "Any club worth its salt has to own its stadium and training ground. For a decade and more, Leeds United haven't and that isn't right. "It is difficult for supporters, they value it more than bricks and mortar. "They make an emotional investment in their team and the club and have a link, a tie to the heritage and history, past glories and failures, to the ground, your home. "We have not had that at Leeds United and it is hard for supporters of any other club to fully understand it until it happens to them. "Rangers are a massive, historic club and the idea that they could lose their stadium and training ground and become tenants is, in my opinion, devastating. "It has been so hard for the fans of Leeds United and it will be for Rangers fans if it happens. "We are in a fight to reclaim our identity and our home and I would urge Rangers fans to keep up their fight to hold on to Ibrox and Murray Park." Having seen the board backtrack on plans to consider a legally binding undertaking on Ibrox and again hit out at the aims of Ibrox 1972 Ltd - the vehicle used by the UoF to collect season ticket pledges and backed by Dave King and a host of Light Blue legends - supporters have become increasingly disillusioned with the Gers powerbrokers. The board have repeatedly criticised the UoF proposal that would see the stadium and training complex handed over to fans but LUST chairman Cooper has given the group his firm support. He said: "Supporter involvement in owning any ground, or financing the purchase of a ground, has to be a positive thing. "The club's identity is intrinsically linked with the place it plays its football. "Its history is there, its traditions are there and the hearts and emotions of the supporters are there, and I mean supporters from a hundred years ago and today. "It is fundamentally important that fans try to retain a voice in all aspects of our game and our clubs. "It doesn't belong to the money men, it isn't all about money. "It is about competition, identity, tribalism, recognising something in your club that lives and breathes in yourself. We are losing that. "If the Rangers fans are going to fight to keep ownership of Ibrox and Murray Park then I am sure our 9,000 members would support them all the way."
  9. 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 penalties to set up a rematch with KCC, edging the amateurs 1-0 in the final. It was an improvement on their previous appearance in 2011, when they finished third in their group and exited in the Plate quarters. Rangers finished fifth in the 2013/14 First Division, one place better than the previous season, which was their first year back in the top flight after being relegated to the Second Division in 2008. One of the territory’s most storied clubs, the team were founded as Hong Kong Rangers more than 50 years ago by a Scottish expatriate called Ian Petrie, who named his new team after the more famous Rangers in his homeland. Rangers changed the face of local football in 1970, becoming the first team to recruit overseas players by bringing in Scottish professionals Derek Currie and Walter Gerrard – both of whom remain revered in Hong Kong to this day – a move that brought the club their only league title in 1971.

  11. Lorenzo Amoruso urges Rangers supporters to put their trust in Dave King to oust Ibrox board Sunday 11 May 2014, by Stewart Fisher LORENZO Amoruso last night became the latest former Rangers player to call for supporters to back Dave King and Richard Gough's plan to boycott season tickets and place the money in a trust instead as a means of forcing major boardroom change. The Italian has emerged as a fierce critic of the current hierarchy and feels that placing funds in Ibrox 1972 Ltd, the vehicle introduced by King and already being used by supporters groups' the Union Bears and the Blue Order for pooling their funds, is the only mechanism for bringing about change. "Too many people have been touching the heart of the club who don't deserve to be so close," said Amoruso. "They have ripped out the soul of the club. It's so frustrating for people like me who were running, chasing after every ball, spitting blood sometimes and going through so many operations. " I didn't do all that to see this situation develop. We want to see better people control the club, people who really care about Rangers. "I didn't really encounter Dave King much when I was a player because he was in South Africa a lot, but I met him," said Amoruso, who was in Glasgow this week. "He was a director but not involved in the way David Murray was. But he is a Rangers man and he is putting himself out there and he deserves credit and support. He has been there before for the benefit of the club. "This is a crucial period because season ticket holders have a week left before deciding whether to renew and from those I've spoken to I don't think there is a feeling that supporters want to renew and I think that is the best solution. "It's hard to believe I am asking for the stadium to be empty. But if that is what it is going to take to get this board out then that's the way it has to be. There are easier ways to solve this problem but some people don't want to listen. That's why we must take a hardline approach. I'm sorry, this board just has to go." http://www.heraldscotland.com/sport/football/lorenzo-amoruso-urges-rangers-supporters-to-put-their-trust-in-dave-king-to-oust-ibro.24190175
  12. I'm having a light chat on FB on ex players and their lack of action since admin. So, should they have done more when we went into administration and months afterwards? Some points from me: Bomber got a lot of hassle for speaking up when he did. Okay, he might have lacked the appropriate skills but the message was still there. A portion of the support and past colleagues flung him under a bus IMO. Gough was approached early days in admin to help with SaveRangers and never got involved. I'm willing to move on if he can help with supporters now though. Many players gave interviews with the usual sound bytes but never thought of standing besides the support. March to Hampden is a classic example where Sandy led the support besides influential fans...an excellent opportunity to show unity with the people who adored them but not one stuck their head above the parapet. Disappointing when Sandy and Ally were in the trenches with supporters. Kris Boyd got involved in BuyRangers and certain players walked away in very disappointing circumstances. So, your opinion on the current status of ex players and their actions during and after administration?
