  1. I apologise for the length of this article but I think the subject has to be covered properly as opposed to restricted. Sectarianism in Scotland - The Simpleton's Solace When Rangers beat Celtic (or progress in Europe for that matter), the reaction from some quarters is always easy to predict. Either blame the referee or if that isn't possible when the light blue's were clearly hard done by, then place the focus on to what songs the Rangers fans sung. Let's be clear from the outset and do something that these dangerous people refuse to consider and be objective. Some songs Rang
  2. WALTER SMITH has held a secret summit with tycoon Craig Whyte to talk about the future of Rangers. The out-going Ibrox boss met with potential new supremo Whyte last Friday. Whyte is said to be inching closer to a deal to buy out Sir David Murray, and was at last week's Europa League defeat against PSV. Smith then met with the Scots billionaire for a face-to-face discussion about what the future holds for the SPL champs. Smith said: "I met Craig Whyte last week. It was a discussion from his perspective as to how I saw things at Rangers. "I have no inclination what way thing
  3. NEIL LENNON bounced and fidgeted in the main stand, a simmering ginger bundle of energy and frustration. He yelled. He cursed. He fed a non-stop stream of instructions to his sidekicks on the sidelines. Nothing the Celtic boss could say made a difference in the end. No amount of tinkering or yelling or substitutions could turn the tide of a game that always seemed destined to end in defeat. This time, when it was over, he couldn't even blame the ref. Let's be honest here - Craig Thomson got off the hook yesterday - big time. Had Rangers lost this titanic final, there would hav
  4. WALTER SMITH last night condemned as ââ?¬Å?dangerousââ?¬Â the decisions of the referee after Rangers won the Co-operative Insurance Cup final 2-1 at Hampden. A goal from Nikica Jelavic gave Smithââ?¬â?¢s side victory in extra time after Celticââ?¬â?¢s Joe Ledley had equalised Steven Davisââ?¬â?¢s opener, but the match included a major controversy when Craig Thomson, the match referee, awarded Rangers a penalty in the first half only to rescind it immediately. Thomson pointed straight away to the spot as Thomas Rogne, the Celtic defender, attempted to challenge Jelavic inside the box.
  5. 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.
  6. Putting my dislike for the guy aside, what has he done for us that makes him a better team player than the others? He looks slow, he seems to take the pace off the ball, he hasn't created much for others and has only scored 1 goal albeit an important one. If McCoist decides not to sign him again next season I won't be to disappointed. So far he's flattered to deceive. According to some fans, Walter Smith signed him to wind up the opposition but it's backfired. He's been sent off and had the arse ripped right out of him by Scott Brown and Celtic on a couple of occassions now. To m
  7. By jim Traynor on Mar 14, 11 08:37 AM in ALLY McCOIST will fight his two-match touchline ban but he should accept the punishment. He'll need all his reserves of energy and will for more important struggles which lie ahead. Depending on what happens over the next two to three weeks he will be taking over as manager of a club about to be revitalised or one sliding deeper into decline. And many are convinced it will be the latter. With the passing of every week Rangers fans lose hope that their club will be bought over and dragged out of debt. They look at the paucity of Walter S
  8. IT'S more than 11 years since he was the Hammer in Holland. But the Rangers badge has been nailed on for life. Tonight Jorg Albertz will again pull on the Light Blue top. Only this time he'll be wearing it in front of his TV at home in Moenchengladbach to cheer on Walter Smith's side. And he'll sit there praying someone can repeat his heroics of 1999 and bullet home a Gers winner in the Philips Stadion. The Ibrox side's star-studded attacking names of the past might be replaced by a team ethic based on defence. But Albertz is convinced they can still shock Fred Rutten's
  9. 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.
  10. FOR once the entire country is talking about Scottish football after Wednesday's Old Firm derby. For all the wrong reasons. The reaction to events at Parkhead has been astonishing. Everyone I've spoken to absolutely LOVED the Old Firm meltdown - apart from policemen and politicians! I lost count of how many normally sane English friends and colleagues told me they are already counting down the days to the Old Firm League Cup Final on March 20, following the madness. Scottish football - or the Old Firm at any rate - has become must-see TV in a freaky, 'Big Bro
  11. 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
  12. In the aftermath of another defeat to our greatest rivals last week, the tabloid headlines and talk of the sporting press haven't been about the football on display or lack of it either. Instead, it's all been about 'inflammatory incidents', 'shameful behaviour' and even more incredibly, how the various minor flashpoints in what is always one the feistiest events in Britain's non-fighting sports calendar have all of a sudden 'deeply embarrassed' the SFA. I'm not going to talk about the SFA, their embarrassing actions this season or their poor referees. I won't talk about cover-ups, their C
  13. I make that the last 4 OF games that WS has been outclassed by Neil Lennon. In each of those 4 games we've been outplayed, outpassed and outmuscled yet he still decides to go with the same defensively naive formation in an attempt to slow the game down and score a goal. It's not working Walter so why don't you change it? WS simply doesn't have the players to play like this. He's trying to replicate the results we got against Celtic in the 90s but we haven't got the players to hit Celtic on the counter attack. There's no winger who can skin his marker and whip in a good cross like Walters
  14. CELTIC coach Alan Thompson last night blamed Ibrox star El Hadji Diouf for sparking Old Firm mayhem. Thompson claimed Diouf lit the fuse on an explosive Scottish Cup tie that saw 13 yellows dished out and three Rangers players sent off as Celtic ran out 1-0 winners thanks to a Mark Wilson goal. Celtic boss Neil Lennon had a furious bust-up with Gers No.2 Ally McCoist on the final whistle and had to be hauled apart by their backroom staff. Itââ?¬â?¢s alleged McCoist told Lennon as they shook hands: ââ?¬Å?Why donââ?¬â?¢t you stay away from our players?ââ?¬Â in a reference to the
  15. CELTIC manager Neil Lennon and Rangers assistant manager Ally McCoist had to be pulled apart last night at the conclusion of an explosive Old Firm Scottish Cup tie which is likely to be subject to SFA disciplinary proceedings. The Ibrox club, who lost the fifth-round replay 1-0, had three players sent off by referee Calum Murray who dished out 13 yellow cards in total, just three of them to Celtic who secured a quarter-final visit to Inverness Caledonian Thistle on 13 March. Steven Whittaker was dismissed in the first half, Madjid Bougherra followed him in stoppage time and then El Hadji
  16. Rangers boss Walter Smith today revealed how Neil Lennon�s treatment of El-Hadji Diouf sparked the touchline mayhem at the end of last night�s Old Firm match. Lennon came out of his technical area to exchange words with Diouf as he complained to fourth official Iain Brines after Steven Whittaker�s dimissal in the Scottish Cup fifth-round replay. His actions angered Gers assistant gaffer Ally McCoist, who then had to be separated from the Hoops boss by coaching staff after the final whistle. It is not the first time Lennon has allowed himself to become involved
  17. WALTER SMITH has banned his players from boozy nights out and trash talking on social networking sites as part of his bid to turn their season around. Record Sport told yesterday how the Rangers boss ordered his players into Murray Park last Monday on their day off for a crisis summit less than 24 hours after watching them slump to a humiliating 3-0 thrashing against Celtic. Now we can reveal explosive details of Smith's dressing-room address which has stirred his team back to life ahead of tomorrow night's return to Parkhead for a winor-bust Scottish Cup replay. Smith demanded that hi
  18. ALLY McCOIST has already identified players he wants to bring to Rangers when he takes over from Walter Smith. And the manager-in-waiting is keen to land stars who can provide more quality and entertainment. Gers have enjoyed great times during Smith's second stint in charge but he has sometimes been criticised for being over-cautious. McCoist hopes to marry success with flowing football but knows pulling that off is far from easy. His great friend Tommy Burns had Celtic playing slick football in the 1990s yet won just one trophy in three years. That cost him his job. And M
  19. ONE man has taken so much flak since he first donned the Rangers jersey. He has taken more abuse than I've ever seen heaped on ANY player at my old club. Well, this morning I say to El Hadji Diouf: Take a bow, son. Yes, I wrote in SunSport that his spitting shame would have earned him a battering from my old Nine-in-a-Row mates. I stand by that. Last night, though? Last night I was in the midst of the Rangers support in Lisbon who saw the on-loan Blackburn Rovers star work his a*** off for the Ibrox side's cause. I thought he was brilliant and led the line so well in his ro
  20. 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
  21. is a horrific journeyman that's been in the right place right time with regard to success at this club. Discuss. I never thought thought as a follower of the beautiful game that my own beloved club would become a team of fucking hammer throwers/ IT's not even just that. IT's how bloody arrogant and stupid he is? Everybody knows Lafferty is a horrific finisher and playing him has probably cost us progression Every year this website rings more and mroe true http://www.toffeeweb.com/club/managers/Smith.asp
  22. Before I start, I'd like to make it clear that this league still has a long way to go. As always, any defeat should be taken in context and not used to write off title challenges or make other teams look better than they actually are. However... Yesterday was a total disgrace from our players and the manager should not escape criticism either. Ironically, I doubt many of us would have disagreed with the starting XI - even if a few of the players have been under-performing generally this season. Sure, a 4-5-1 may look immediately defensive but we still had the offensive players to make
