  1. Highlights * No longer reliant on bank funding * Turnover at GBP57.2m for 2010/11 was an overall increase of GBP0.9m over the previous year * Gate receipts and hospitality sales increased overall by GBP1.3m to GBP27.1m CHAIRMAN'S STATEMENT When I became the majority shareholder and Chairman of this great football club in May this year, the sense of honour and privilege I felt was overwhelming. Those feelings are stronger than ever within me now. First, I would like to address what matters most to every Rangers fan - football. In recent years the

  3. ALLY McCOIST may have failed to keep Rangers in Europe for long this season, but his staggering record in the Scottish Premier League since taking over from Walter Smith has firmly focused the continentâ??s attention on Ibrox. Rangersâ?? remarkable unbeaten record in the league has put McCoistâ??s team out in front of just about every European rival and when the Ibrox manager puts his own record next to the work put in by Smith last season, the only club that can boast a better unbeaten record in European league football is FC Porto. The Portuguese champions have amassed a remarkable 4
  4. KYLE LAFFERTY has told Rangers boss Ally McCoist: I'm yours to keep. McCoist made it clear last week he is anxious to secure the striker on an extended contract. Lafferty is keen to stay and he said: "I saw what the manager said about me staying here and it means a lot. He's shown a lot of faith in me since taking over from Walter Smith and I'm doing everything I can to repay him. "There haven't been any talks over a new contract, but hopefully there will be soon and we can sort something out quickly. "I don't see why I can't finish my career here. It would be brilliant to play
  5. NIKICA JELAVIC is the finest No 9 to ply his trade at Ibrox since Ally McCoist. There, I've said it. Better than Rod Wallace, better than Kenny Miller, better even than Kris Boyd. In many ways, the Croatian is the COMPLETE centre forward. Remember, eyebrows were firmly raised when Walter Smith shelled out £4.1million for his services last summer. Why splash that kind of cash on just one player when many felt my old boss could've been doing with two or three? Well, right now the Jelavic deal is shaping up to be bargain of the century. He's become almost priceless to
  6. PEOPLE used to call Walter Smith defensive. But compared to yer man Craig Whyte, the old silver fox was Jimmy Calderwood going 2-4-4-1. With his goalie up front as the one. There's an old saying that if you've done nothing wrong, you've nothing to hide. And it's run round my head again and again this week in regards to the new Rangers owner. Why IS he so secretive? Why DOES he bristle quite so angrily over any kind of criticism? I mean, he's done one truly impressive thing since taking over at Ibrox and that was to turn up at the first Old Firm game of the season alongside

    Memories of Walter Smith

    I have the following games from last season that i can put on a disc: CIS Cup Final against Celtic Walter's last home game against Dundee Utd Walter's last game against Kilmarnock I also have a documentary shown on STV: Walter Smith the football years If you want any memories of Walter on disc, drop me a PM.
  8. Jamie Ness admits his battle is only just beginning as he makes his next step on the road to recovery after a month on the sidelines. The midfielder joined Davie Weir, Lee McCulloch, Matt McKay and Alejandro Bedoya in action as Rangers beat Gateshead 4-0 in a bounce game at Murray Park on Wednesday. Ness has endured a torrid time with injuries so far this season and despite getting close to a return to full fitness, he faces an even stiffer challenge to oust in-form duo Steven Davis and Mo Edu from the Gersâ?? starting line-up. He said: â??You saw on Tuesday night that Mo got man-o
  9. Taken from an article today on the Sheffield United official website with the manager talking about their transfers - http://www.sufc.co.uk/page/Gaffersnotes/0,,10418~2438984,00.html
  10. Taken from his autobiography. And Boozegate
  11. But had this been a Rangers fan, he'd have been jailed. With all the hullaballoo about sectarianism, you'd have expect a harsher sentence. Well, it would have been if it had been us.
  12. BOBBY WILLIAMSON claims Ally McCoist should have walked away from Rangers with Walter Smith. Coisty's old strike partner says Gers' record goalscorer is risking his Ibrox reputation as boss of his boyhood heroes. Williamson fears Coisty, who he also bossed at Kilmarnock, will get NO help in the transfer market from the new Rangers regime. He said: "Maybe he should have walked away when Walter did because I don't think this new chairman is going to give him any cash. "I'd hate to see his reputation go down the swannee. Fans are fickle and have short memories. "The man is a l
  13. By Tom English YOU don't have to be in Ally McCoist's company for very long to understand what his favourite word might be. When he gets earnest, which is pretty much most of the time in these early and troubled days of his reign, he has a way of speaking, a McCoistian sincerity, that is hard to miss. "To be honest with you..." "To be perfectly honest..." "I'm going to be honest here..." "The honest truth is..." Such a lot of honesty, so let's continue the theme. Rangers had every right to hope for the best in Malmo last Wednesday evening, but the sensible ones among thei
  14. NOT good enough for Manchester City, but too good for Rangers. Roberto Mancini has plunged Vladimir Weiss' football career into limbo after ruling out a return to Ibrox for the Slovakian winger. After falling in love with Gers, Weiss would walk back to Ibrox if he could. But with one eye on the future, City boss Mancini wants Weiss to test himself at the best level possible. And the 21-year-old has revealed Mancini insists that won't involve a return to Rangers because he doesn't rate the SPL. Weiss, who played an important role in helping Gers win the title and League Cup
  15. "I Strongly Suggest Celtic Supporters Avoid Bridgeton Cross on August 13th" by Joe O;Rourke from CSA Glasgow City Council and the Police have come to what they believe to be an acceptable compromise on the decision to allow a number of contentious parades to pass by Celtic Park on the afternoon of August 13th. Their decision to allow the parades to go ahead at an earlier time helps the situation, but is by no means the proper decision; the proper decision would have been to change the parades to a different date altogether; or better still; ban them full stop. I would strongly recommend
  16. HAVING played under four of the 12 men who preceded him as Rangers manager, Ally McCoist requires no instruction on the weight of responsibility resting on his shoulders as he begins his tenure in earnest today. But if he ever feels in need of a reminder, then he knows a glance at the portraits on the walls of the office he now occupies at the top of the marble staircase inside Ibrox will be sufficient to sharpen his focus on the demands and expectations he must strive to meet. McCoist would never claim that the role he inherited from Walter Smith during the summer was his destiny. On
  17. .... so we may as well start celebrating now :cheers: -- Explain to me how Rangers are going to square their oncoming tax bill and I'll wager you could teach us how to nail jelly to a tree. Frankly I still don't quite comprehend how the Ibrox club's takeover has built a jigsaw puzzle picture of a sunny future. But then why listen to me? I never thought Craig the Whyte knight would get his hands on the club in the first place. So off we jolly well go into another season which has already fired up more questions than answers, with its embarrassing hiccupping start as the Old Firm
  18. I think it's safe to say that regardless of how we feel about preseason friendly results, and performances, we are all united in pretty significant displeasure at our club's rather woefully inadequate performance in the transfer market this window. We have made just the one solitary signing, the promising looking Juanma, in the tricky slot of winger, so it's safe to say that Weiss has been replaced. But elsewhere we appear to be going sideways. We've failed to bring in any strikers at all, with failed attempts at getting Hemed and the on-going soap opera that is Goodwillie. Now we've turne
  19. After two successive defeats in pre season, Alistair McCoist has had to endure by himself the first small experience of pressure since his succession of Walter Smith in the managerial hot seat. The outgoing manager made clear the simple task awaiting all those who occupy that lonely position where the buck stops, stating simply that as Rangers manager ââ?¬Ë?youââ?¬â?¢ve got to win all the timeââ?¬â?¢. Ranking third in the clubââ?¬â?¢s table of appearances, and first in the goal scoring charts, the new manager is undoubtedly familiar with this simple demand of life at Scotlandââ?¬â?¢s
  20. 26k a week, wow. I thought �£25k would be our limit but if true its great to have him tied up.
  21. Trust me Coisty, bring in all 3 of these guys and you've made your marquee signings right there.
  22. FIT-AGAIN Ger Kirk Broadfoot has urged new boss Ally McCoist to give him the chance to become central to his Ibrox revolution. The Scotland cap, who missed the title run-in with an ankle injury and then a fractured foot, has started his pre-season four weeks early in a bid to get the new season up and running from the first whistle. McCoist has made a central defender his summer priority, as the futures of captain Davie Weir and Madjid Bougherra still have to be ironed out, and that is a position that is no stranger to Broadfoot. He played there at St Mirren and believes thatââ?¬â
  23. After watching the Walter Smith programme on STV last night and seeing some cracking goals scored at Ibrox, it got me thinking. What is your favourite goal scored at Ibrox by a Rangers player? Mines has to be Gazza's 2nd of 3 against Aberdeen to clinch 8IAR. Sheer brilliance!! Seeing it on the programme sent tingles up my spine.
  24. HOME is where the heart is. And right now for Mancunian Kyle Bartley that feels like Ibrox. Arsenal star Bartley took to Rangers from day one after arriving on a short-term loan close to the shutting of the January transfer window. The calm and collected centre-half made an immediate impression for the champions on and off the pitch. So much so that the popular Bartley is now being treated like part of the Rangers family. His Gers pals are desperate to see the ex-England youth ace return to the club for the 2011-12 campaign. Bartley knows that because they are forever t
  25. Seen this advertised on STV - I think it's on Tuesday at 8pm. Detailing his time at Ibrox I assume.
