Funeral of Fernando

Recommended Posts


Never got the chance to head over to Ibrox to pay my respects due to a day off work with my wee lassie being sick but will watch as the legend passes by towards the Linn Crematorium. I stay local so once the mrs gets in from work ill head down. Rest in peace Fernando. Forever our captain

Thought that too. Seemed strange that McGrgeor had a suit and tie on and none of the other players did.

Possibly because he's going to the funeral. Think he would be rested tonight anyway and obviously was a teammate of Fernando.

Would struggle to understand the reasoning behind Tav no going as captain imo

See your point but if McGregor is going then it's at least representation from the first team from a player that actually knew Fernando.

I know Tav has obviously met him too but McGregor knew the real Fernando.

I agree but being honest I don't see many going for 2 reasons the game tonight and whilst they represent us now only McGregor knew Fernando personally.

Sadly full of spackers more interested in filming it for their Facebook than actually paying their respects. 

There are TV companies there doing that job, call me old fashioned but what the fuck are you even going to do with that video? 

Anyway, sleep easy Fernando. One of our own. 

You'd think they would realise a funeral procession isn't the time or place to be holding up a phone filming, mental. Cunts feel the need to broadcast everything on their shitty social media platforms these days.

suppose we have a game tonight actually

Mcgregor as an ex team- mate should be going.

Maybe i’m being pedantic, but standing at the main doors of stadium in tracksuits to see cortege is poor imo.

Could’ve wore suits and then changed at hotel before game.

Agreed mate. Poor show with the tracksuits. 

Anyone filming the hearse passing is a fucking idiot aswell. Plenty of news outlets there doing it.

It's utter lowlife behaviour IMO.

You wonder how they would react to someone filming the hearse or running on the road to take pictures if it was their own family member in there.

I agree a lot of it was on poor taste today but its reflected in our society.

Folk would video folk getting a beating rather than help. Clapping as a respect rather than minutes silence. Singing as a  funeral cortege passes. Lack of poppy worn etc. Respect isnt a true value today.

None of it sits well with me, but they did go along and pay respect in the (wrong) way that they think is right. It's done.

 

The singing didn't bother me. Being honest I actually expected it to happen.

It’s the way of the World these days, folk videoing stuff.

It was a public event, different if they were doing it inside the church or crematorium, that’s for family and friends.

I fully understand folk who take exception though.

Proud of the turnout, rest in peace Fernando.

Game or not tonight, the team should all have had shirt and ties on.

 

Standards.

I don’t disagree but, let’s not get to bogged down with something which is not important in the grand scheme of things.

 

RIP Fernando
