Because I was born under a union jack a union union jack - that and I followed in my footsteps of my ancestors - all blue noses, I could see the passion, the joy and the love they had for the worlds most successfully club .

Because Rangers are the Pride of Scotland - I love Rangers and have done since watching them in the 1990s during the wonder years. I knew from then on, Rangers were the team for me  :21:

Based on the soccer am segment, tell us why you love our club.

I was born and brought up catholic, with all of my friends and family supporting the dirty bastards. At the age of around 5 or 6, my grandad took me to a Celtic v St MIrren match at love street and I just knew even at that early age I did not want to support the team playing in green and white. I don't know why I had this thought as my brother, father and grandad were all Celtic fans, but for some reason I never wanted to support them. My first memory of watching rangers was in an old firm game with Chris woods playing in goals for us. I'd always played in goals with my mates when we played football and I was just amazed by how good this guy was. I asked my dad to buy me a Chris Woods goalie top and to his credit he did. Ever since then I have loved Glasgow Rangers, thanks hugely to my early hero's, Chris Woods, Andy Goram and my hometown hero, super ally. I know most people will have been brought up supporting rangers, but it would be interesting to hear how others became supporters of our famous club.

To be honest you sound like a glory hunter "I didn't like watching septic scum cos they're so shit, so instead I supported their extremely successful next door neighbours who humiliate septic all the time"

One of my cousins is a Rangers fan - whilst my other cousin his brother is a Celtic fan but both also support Liverpool!! Gotta love the brotherly rivalry there lol

I love Rangers because it is what it is. I've been lucky enough to be born into a Rangers family and I expect that tradition to carry on with my kids.

No other club could even come close to recreating the drama and love I have for Rangers... fucking soppy reading it back  :lol:

Plus Bogtrotters is a bear... I'd be foolish not to love Rangers for those pics  :clap: .... Should of signed up when those PM's were flying about   :ph34r: ... although it was quicker just to wap some porn on... bloody royal mail  :craphead:

Fuck off. I started supporting Rangers because of the way they played football and because of the characters that played for the club. I had no idea when I was six who was winning the league, I just new that was the team I wanted to follow. Even if your father or your fathers father was a bear, somewhere down the line someone in your family started supporting us because of the way we played football and not because they were brought up that way. Were they "glory hunters" as you put it dickhead?

fair play to the OP.

I hated football with a passion as I couldnt play to save myself. My eldest son started to get interested at the same time as the souness era, we got season tickets and the rest is history! This wee club tends to get into your blood very quickly and by fuck is it addictive, :uk:

Following on from my old man. Not many bears in the family except us, a whole lot of Morton fans but that's expected when they had relatives playing for them. Everyone on my mums side is one of them.

Growing up in the 90's you couldn't help but be a Ranger. I'm only 21 but in those 21 years so much has happened, so many wonderful, skillful players that I've seen. You have to take the bad with the good and since I have experienced the good already it is going to be oh so sweet when the glory days return!!

Touchy fucker - I'm not a cradle-Rangers fan, I supported them off my own back when I WATCHED THEM PLAY and have supported them since.. but your family are scum fans, they were happy enough to support the terrorists even with their shitty team and playing style, but you just wanted the glory and what came with it by supporting the Pride of Scotland the mighty Glasgow Rangers.

Don't worry every successful club have glory hunters - it's not uncommon like  :uk:
