  1. Bobby Shearer's medal collection to go up for auction By National Newsdesk TWENTY-ONE medals belonging to late Rangers star Bobby Shearer are going under the hammer this month. The collection, which is being sold by the footballer’s family, is believed to be the largest set of Rangers medals to feature in a single auction. Covering the period 1955 to 1965, they include the former captain’s League Cup and League Championship medals from the Rangers treble-winning 1963/64 season, which could fetch £1500 and £2500 respectively. They will go under the hammer at McTear’s Sporting Medals and Trophies Auction in Glasgow on July 19. The sale will also include the player’s finalist medal from the European Cup Winner’s Cup in 1961, which Rangers lost over two legs to Fiorentina. Experts believe the lot could sell for up to £3000. Shearer’s widow Helen said: “I wasn’t a big football fan but I enjoyed going to the games to support Robert. He loved playing for Rangers and was very well respected by all the players. He was tough on the pitch but always fair. “He had lots of football friends, including a lot of folk at celtic. He was honoured to become the captain of Rangers Football Club and captained the treble-winning team in 1963/64. “There are a lot of lovely memories tied in to the collection, and the family are keeping a few medals, but to be honest I think the time is right for the others to come out of their boxes and to be passed on to football fans who will treasure them.” During his time at Ibrox, he won five league titles, three Scottish Cups and four League Cups, and also played four times for Scotland. He died on November 6 2006, aged 74. Brian Clements, from McTear’s, said: “Bobby Shearer was a true Rangers legend who picked up every honour going in the Scottish game, including a treble haul of medals in season 1963/64. “We see a lot of Old Firm medals coming through the doors at McTear’s but this is by far the largest collection associated with a single player. “There are some fantastic individual pieces; however, the collection as a whole paints a fascinating picture of Rangers success from 1955 to 1965. I have no doubt there will be considerable interest in the auction.” In addition to the Rangers items, the Bobby Shearer collection also includes medals from the player’s time in the RAF in the early 1950s.
  2. Rangers are delighted to announce that the Women’s first-team and Academy have become fully integrated within the club’s football department. The exciting move means Rangers will have the opportunity to recruit professional players, as well as turn some of our existing players professional. Rangers Women will now play all their home games at the Hummel Training Centre, when the second half of their season resumes in August, following a break for the summer’s World Cup. The new stand at the club’s training facility has been developed in line with Scottish Women’s Premier League requirements for this purpose. Learn More: https://rng.rs/2XPVSZy
  3. Been told he’s surplus to requirements. From the Sun JORDAN ROSSITER will have no part to play at Rangers next season. The Gers midfielder - along with Kyle Lafferty, Eros Grezda, Graham Dorrans and Jason Holt - has been left at home and told to find a new club while the rest of the squad get to work in Portugal. Rossiter was tipped for big things at Liverpool before Gers move Rossiter, 22, has barely featured for the Light Blues because of injuries since joining from Liverpool three years ago. The former England U-19s captain was outstanding during a loan spell at Bury last season. But Steven Gerrard already has plenty of midfield options and is on the verge of adding out-of-contract Charlton star Joe Aribo. The Ibrox boss admits it was difficult telling the quintet their services were no longer required, although he accepts there can be no room for sentiment. He enjoyed a successful loan at Bury last season. He added: “The squad is big. We have 28 players with us right now. “The board haven’t said and they haven’t put me under any pressure, but you don’t have to be a rocket scientist to work out the squad is too big. “I have to be honest and tell people they won’t get the game time that will satisfy them. “It’s not as brutal as saying get out as quick as you can, we don’t respect you and don’t love you anymore. “But as a manager you have to make tough decisions and you have to go with what you think is the best prepared squad to challenge next season. “Yes, I have had to have difficult conversations with certain players, but I hope they understand I’m trying to be as respectful as I can to give them as much time to find a different route. “My job is to manage the team, manage game time, make team selections and pick squads best capable of being successful. “In terms of contracts and what is out there for them, that is where their agents will come into it more than myself. “It’s very easy for a manager to be selfish and keep them in the door for as long as you want and tell them later on in the window. I don’t think that is fair. “I want to give people I respect the best chance to get the best solution for them. “That is why I have told certain people as early as I can.”
  4. I have no axe to grind on this, not a OO member but believe they should be allowed to march. Couple of points; 1. Politicians will always take the easy way out. They get a recommendation from the police, they accept that. Win win for them. 2. Has a Council ever went against the police recommendation regarding a OO march? Just asking. 3. The OO and other Loyalist organisations have the problem that the vast majority of the population just don’t care. If there were no more marches they would not lose a wink of sleep 4. No. 3 is the real problem for the OO, year by year Scotland's becoming more secular.
  5. Dearie me, this is what it’s come to for some. Don't agree with a fellow fan so insults fly. For your information I’m a life member of Club1872 and before that RST right from the start, does not make me any more a fan or less of a fan than you.
  6. Yes she’s a director, but Club1872 are leaving themselves open to accusations of party politics. A Street may be or not be a no go area for a parade, that does not make it a no go area for Protestants, a big difference..
  7. Cou-le of points. 1. Why did Club1872 let Laura Fawkes to sign this letter? She’s an active Labour Party member. Someone else should have signed. 2. SPAD made a stupid mistake by stating there were no go areas in Glasgow for Protestants, that’s just daft apart from being untrue.
  8. Spot on. Daft boys making up things or repeating what some older eejit told them. There is absolutely no evidence that the SRA(if it exists) or SNP gave arms to the IRA. If there was it would be all over social media, daft claims like this get us nowhere.
  9. The SNP is in no way comparable to the IRA. Such comments only make our support look stupid to the general public.
  10. I never noticed any end date for renewal on the email I received.
  11. Thanks. There’s always a comedian 😀
