  1. Beggars Allocation Cut

    Good news in my opinion. If it was up to me I wouldn't let even one of them into Ibrox.
  2. Beggars Allocation Cut

    That applepine bit made me laugh out loud. The rest of the post is spot on.
  3. sfa bigot exposed

    The main point about people like him is they are actually more anti-Rangers than pro-tim. Even in that old article instead of just going on about his own club he felt the need to bring Rangers and our fans into the subject. There is something mentally deranged about their support in general.

    It's the same with their houses and gardens. You can walk down a street in any estate and you can be 90% certain that the untidy houses and gardens are not of our persuasion.
  5. HKFC Soccer Sevens

    We were the far better team playing football during the normal game but the 4 v 4 golden goal is a lottery.
  6. Rangers Pools

    One way or another, we have always paid for or towards the upkeep of the stadium.
  7. BBC Article

    What is the "proper route"? I expect that the lawyers have stated that the Club's insurance would be with a different corporate entity at that time for any claim against an employee.
  8. BBC Article

    Why should the club agree to negotiate a payout for an allegation? I absolutely abhor the abuse of anyone and particularly the abuse of minors. It is despicable but the Club was unaware of Neely's depravity at that time. Rangers sacked him when he was accused of speaking inappropriately (to one youth player) which is nowhere near as bad as today's allegation. Hibs failed to notify anyone of previous allegations (plural). There were far fewer checks on individuals when the alleged offences occurred. The PVG checks were only introduced after 2002 as far as I am aware. Other clubs knew more and did next to nothing.

    Yes it was for "speaking inappropriately" according to media in 2016.
  10. BBC Article

    I'm not sure this is the same case. Your last paragraph is spot on as is your first.
  11. BBC Article

    This appears to be a different story from that DR report. "Spoken to inappropriately" is a far cry from what is being suggested in today's story. Legally RIFC is not responsible for what occurred under RFC (2012) Plc but the main complaint should be against Hibs as they were aware of Neely's depravity and Rangers weren't. We sacked Neely for "speaking inappropriately" as that was all that we were aware of at that time. Hibs were aware of much worse. The Club needs to come out with a more detailed statement about abuse and demand an all-out enquiry at ALL clubs about historic abuse and what was known by whom and what was or in some cases wasn't reported to the authorities at the time. With so many cases awaiting trial regarding the tims affiliated boys club there is possibly little which can be said at this time until such cases have been completed.
  12. Club statement on Sfa nonsense.

    What has the Club admitted to?
  13. Club statement on Sfa nonsense.

    This is the type of issue that the RFF Fund money should have been used to fight instead of some useless stand at Auchenhowie. We fans should sue the SFA for breaching the terms of their previous agreements and for singling out Rangers at every turn.
  14. Club statement on Sfa nonsense.

    We have known for years that Whyte never paid the WTC debt. The "debt" was only noted as a provision for a potential liability in the interim accounts dated 1 April 2011. Those accounts also noted that discussions were continuing with HMRC. I'm positive that it was in the public domain that shortly after Whyte's takeover he decided to appeal the against the claim thereby continuing the fact that it was still only a "potential liability" and not an agreed debt as such..
  15. Club statement on Sfa nonsense.

    What I would like to know is what they expect to achieve and what are any penalties.

    From BBC web site: Rangers have been charged by the Scottish FA with alleged breaches of articles of association and a disciplinary rule. The first charge relates to compliance with the SFA, Fifa, Uefa and the Court of Arbitration for Sport. The second specifically mentions members' requirement to "behave towards the Scottish FA and other members with the utmost good faith". The Ibrox club have until next Tuesday to respond to the charges. And a principal hearing date has been set for 26 June. The Ibrox side won the Scottish Premier League at the end of season 2010-11 and featured in European competition at the start of the following season. Rangers then entered administration in 2012 and eventually started season 2012-13 in the fourth tier of Scottish football. They won promotion to the Premiership in 2016 and have finished third in the top flight over the past two seasons. In detailing the charges, the SFA say member clubs and their officials and players "shall be subject to and shall comply with the Articles and any statutes, regulations, directives, codes, decisions and International Match Calendar promulgated by the Board or by a Standing Committee, committee or sub-committee thereof, or by Fifa or Uefa or by the Court of Arbitration for Sport". The articles of association mentioned are dated 2010-11. The governing body also highlight the rule that members shall "observe the principles of loyalty, integrity and sportsmanship in accordance with the rules of fair play" and "be subject to and comply with the articles and any statutes, regulations, directives, codes, decisions and International Match Calendar promulgated by the Board, the Professional Game Board, the Non-Professional Game Board, the Judicial Panel Protocol, a committee or sub-committee, FIFA, UEFA or the Court of Arbitration for Sport". And the SFA add that "officials, its team officials and its players act in accordance" with that rule. The SFA cite "Judicial Panel Protocol 2011-12" for the alleged rule breach.

    Without McCrorie and Morelos we are likely to get thumped. Is Windass injured?
  18. Rangers related picture thread

    You are an evil man Don. This is meant to be a thread which makes people happy and then you post a photo of Muscat. Shame on you sir.
  19. Rangers related picture thread

    I love this photo. I became good friends with JB in 1978 and Dingy was my friend and next door neighbour for nearly 40 years. I also once "teamed up" with big Dandy at the White Elephant one night as it was always easier to meet the girls when there were two of you. Memories !! Thanks for posting this again.

    I'm the same mate. The docs tell most people at my age not to get so excited.

    That bit in bold is both very funny and very frightening.
  22. Major investment?

    Sunday hasn't been forgotten and none of us need any reminders. After Sunday the only way is up next season. Murty going is just the first step and it is up to the board how we progress from here. It would help if we had an independent fans group to hold the board to account and apply a bit of pressure. The club PR is shocking, the MD is a waste of space and the previously promised transparency is non-existent.
