Next Steps

 

 

 

 

 

 

More focused face-to-face meetings in the form of focus groups will now be facilitated at the stadium with fans who had expressed a wish to continue their involvement in this initiative. The first set of focus groups will take place next month on Fan Engagement with a minimum of 4 groups being held. A representative sample of Rangers fans will be included in each group to share their individual views and will be invited to participate on a first come first served basis. A range of topics will be covered and this will be outlined in the initial correspondence for each focus group.

 

These initial focus groups will be followed by further focus groups on Club Membership and Digital & Media in the coming weeks and months.

- What percentage see lawyers letters/sherriff officers as a good way to engage and communicate ?

 

- What percentage like to see disengenuous club statements as a way to engage and communicate ?

 

 

If they seriously want to broach the issue of 'engage and communicate' then do so with transparency and honesty.

They want to seriously try and broach the issue of 'engage and communicate' with transparency and honesty.

 

When individuals make false and/or unsubstantiated allegations who do you expect them to do ?

You know that the game's a bogey when focus groups are mentioned.

 

Indeed.

 

We have owners who are largely unknown and a board whose members have allegiances to clubs other than Rangers.

 

No wonder they need to have focus groups.

And what do you propose to do with these owners who are largely unknown ? Take their shares off them ? Remove their voting rights?

FWIW I have concerns about the board too but I suspect for totally different reasons from you. I want to hear their plans to restore Rangers back to the top of Scottish football and back into Europe at the earliest opportunity. I've heard nothing yet.

As for board member with allegiances to other clubs does that matter if they do a better job than so-called Rangers men such as Paul Murray who seems to think he has the right to be a Rangers director.

We have a team manager who is Rangers man but is pretty hopeless as far as aim concerned. players too past and present

You seem to make quite frequent "false and/or unsubstantiated allegations" yourself. Just as well for you that it's not been about people who keep setting their lawyers on Rangers fans, eh?

And what allegations have I made? Frankly I'm bored with all the Houston/Graham against the Easdales and vice versa
