  1. The BBC web site article about Gordon Neely alleges that RFC covered up his abuse. Now let me say at the outset that such abuse is disgusting and the perpetrators should be punished in a way far more severe than is currently legal. However, the way the BBC has reported this is deliberately trying to show up the Club in a bad light. When you read the actual story the truth is considerably different to the headlines. A youngster alleged abuse by Neely and Rangers sacked him immediately. Rangers had no prior knowledge of Neely's behaviour but sacked him anyway. If the boy and his parents weren't happy at that outcome then why didn't they take it further at the time?

  2. BBC Scotland’s reporting on these horrific incidents and, in particular, its sensationalist and unfair accusation of a cover up by Rangers is disgraceful. 'Rangers based its prior description as to what occurred on trusted first-hand accounts from those with personal knowledge of what took place and the appropriate steps taken at that time. To suggest, as BBC Scotland’s Mark Daly has done, that these are invalidated by a short, filler piece in the Rangers News written almost 30 years ago by someone who clearly had no knowledge of the events, or the reasons for Neely’s sacking is nonsense. Indeed, it is shameful. 'BBC Scotland has a history of inaccurate reporting when commenting on Rangers and a string of apologies given to Rangers by BBC Scotland in recent times is clear evidence of this. However, on a matter of such gravity we do not think it is unreasonable to expect better than Mr Daly’s report. 'The important people here are the victims of abuse and we owe it to them to deal sensitively and supportively with the issues they raise. 'Rangers will do all it can to assist in offering support and counselling to anyone affected. Their wellbeing should be at the centre of every right thinking person’s concern

  4. Maybe it is a pile of shite but the club needs to come out and either debunk it or face up to it,a stoic silence won’t work this time.

  6. The police "lost" evidence of effigies hanging at Ibrox in 2018. Yet apparently it's impossible that a police report from 30 odd years ago could be lost and it's a sure sign of a cover up.

  7. No, we never gave him a "nice send off" in the club newspaper. A junior reporter gave the standard best wishes pish that most inconsequential staff members leaving would receive. Don't try and make out we put out a 10 page pull out lording the cunt up.

  8. Again to sum up. 1.Boy made claim of abuse of a sexual nature 2.Manager interviews boy and parents 3.Manager confronts the accused with the facts he has been presented with and in conversation with the accused he believes the victims account and takes action 4. Manager takes what he sees as appropriate action by sacking the accused on the spot. 5.Officials at the club are said to report the accused to the police and there is no reason to question this 6.the police state that due to the period of time passed the can NEITHER CONFIRM OR DENY a report was made as the records were most probably lost at some point. Still cant see what HR department in the land would have a problem with any of these actions in a company now never mind 30 year ago

  9. Said it from the start that we’d be tied to it by any means necessary then the full investigation will start. Sacked when we found out what he’d done, Hibs knew he was a wrong one and didn’t alert us too it. Bit different from constantly hiring peadophiles for a peadophile ring

  11. There was an attempt to confirm that Rangers reported him to police (superfluous anyway as his dad was a copper) under an FOI request but the police stated that such information was unavailable. Needless to say, this was twisted into “police deny Rangers version of events” by the taig media. Nonetheless, we have to face this up and get in front of the story and, in the process, demonstrate exactly how this sort of matter SHOULD be addressed. It is an opportunity to highlight the different standards and mindsets between ourselves and the scum.

  12. Rangers should be launching an internal investigation to establish once and for all whether the police were contacted. Nobody has been able to establish whether that was the case or not. There will, undoubtedly, be more victims of Neely that will or have already come forward and therefore the investigation should also focus on any failings at that time & ensuring all steps are now taken to protect children. we should also be calling for a full investigation at the highest level into abuse within football.

  13. Please regale us with your view on how Rangers, a football club, could have any control over what a private citizen did or did not do in their private lives? We allowed him. Aye because we're the establishment. Its the police, the government, The Crown, God then Rangers at the top init. Fuck me gently.

  15. There was no “Cover up at Rangers” end of story. A cover up is doing nothing an pretending or denying It didn’t happen.. An allegation was made, it couldn’t be proven one way or another but we sacked the guy. The report to the police can’t be proven but we have several people prepared to state that it was. Daly’s and the BBC headline are a disgrace.

  17. The BBC have crossed a line tonight. They have taken a lack of confirmation (one way or the other) from the police that Neely was reported and twisted that into “Rangers are lying” It is gutter journalism and the saddest thing is that the poor cunt being prepped by Daly doesn’t even know he’s being used. Even their reporting at the end of the late news of Rangers’ statement was misleading. In all my days, I have never been so angry at blatant bias from a supposedly neutral national broadcaster. The club must issue a blanket ban and take legal advice to establish if further action can follow. Of course, this is bad enough at any time but, given that they are complicit in the suppression of a story of the molestation (or worse) of upwards of a hundred children at a club across the city, then their utter prejudice is naked for all to see. There are no words for the contempt I have for an organisation with a pretty fucked up history in this area itself. Fuck the BBC and every bigoted cunt that has anything to do with them.

  19. So we sacked him for threatening to spank a 14 year old. Whether we phoned the police or not they wouldn’t have done anything This is a new low for the BBC.

  20. They’ve literally used the original story but put cover-up in the headline. That is quite amazing. High time the club nailed these bastards in court and took legal action against them. Hibs knew about Neely, didn’t tell Rangers. Rangers hired him, found out what he’d done to the kid and publicly sacked him. No really sure what the issue is here

  23. Time for Rangers to clarify exactly what happened. Once clarified, it’d be the ideal time for the club to put the pressure on and ask for a full and open investigations into child sex offences in Scottish football

  24. Also worth keeping in mind that the horrible cunt would never have been in Rangers in the first place had his previous employers reported the much more serious allegations labelled against him whilst in their employ.

  25. As far as i can make out, the boy was assualted by a prick with previous (not reported by his previous employers) and when the manager was alerted he done the right thing by both the boy and the club by sacking the culprit mentioned. Kinda cut and dried in my opinion .

  26. Decent statement - now have the baws to back it up with action. See them in court where every mis-reported story or lie that they have had to apologise for in the past few years is aired in public. Utter pigswill of an organisation needs cleansed or shut down completely - the brass neck of the bbc trying to accuse anyone else of covering up child abuse.

  27. I came in about an hour ago to see this thread and I have read some of the posts in that time. I was worried for a wee while that the Club was not going to comment, I now see this has been done. I have no doubt this has been done to try and fuck us up and make it seem we are like the tarriers which is just fucking stupid. The BBC in Scotland are a right bunch of Rangers hating bastards and I hope the Club will now be ready to go on the offensive against them, the time for dignified silence has long gone IMO. EDIT: I read some very good posts very quickly tonight and did not bother to give any deserved 'likes' sorry about that.

  28. This coming out now tells me something big is about to drop across the city. It also makes me pretty confident that it's the only incident we're involved in with regards to this as they keep re hashing the same incident over and over again rather than coming out with anything new.

  29. Just read the article again and it says we covered up why he left. With respect such allegations can ruin lives its not our job as a club to determine guilt or not. When we became aware of allegations we acted then informed the police. From that moment its a job for the authorities. We can't nor would I expect us to come out and say we've sacked an alleged paedophile.

  31. I'll also note for the record that no-one is denying that this man did at least one thing during his time at Rangers that was a sackable, and likely criminal, offense. It happened. The club acted. Are we as Rangers supporters now at the point where we're allowing ourselves to be whipped up to such hysterical levels that the word of Walter Smith, Souness and Alistair Hood is no longer good enough? Shaky fucking ground boys. Shaky shaky ground.

  32. The club did the right thing at the time and sacked him. If we haven't reported it to the police then we should have at the time, but so should the parents of the lad. The worse thing we're guilty of is covering up why an employee was sacked and at no point did we knowingly employ child abusers. The police said they couldn't find a record of a report made by Rangers but that doesn't mean we didn't report it. If it's proven that we didn't report it then issue a sincere apology. The BBC have made a mountain out of a molehill and even a lot of our own have fallen for it. Remember, the BBC were warned about Jimmy Saville decades ago and did nothing which enabled him to carry out hundreds of sexual offences against children which they could have prevented. I don't think they're in any position to report about cover ups.

  35. 2 simple questions Daly could have asked the guy, but they go against the bbc narrative against us 1. Why wait 20 odd years(and after he died to report him) money obviously! 2. As you were underage at the time , why didn't your parents go to the police? the Bbc and that bastard Daly are rotten to the core

  37. The reporter at Rangers News probably wasn't even aware there was any reason not to print a story on his departure. Hardly damning evidence of a cover up. Uncomfortable to read knowing everything we know now, yes but the report on him leaving wasn't written in 2019. Should we shut down Time magazine for giving Hitler man of the year? Surely that's evidence they knew about the camps. To the streets!!!

  38. Easy claim to make considering it was 30 years ago and the Police back then would have binned any record of it after speaking to the parents and being told not to pursue it.

  41. He was sacked for being accused of abuse. If we'd printed that he was sacked for abuse and it turned out to be a false allegation Neely would have sued us and we'd have been paying for the retirement of a man who it turns out, all these years later, was a serial abuser.

  42. Aye and you'll note that he never worked for another club in Scotland after he was removed from his role at Rangers. Strange that. A highly rated scout/coach becomes a free agent and no-one tries to hire him so he has to start his own private business? It's almost like something about the guy wasn't kept a secret by erm, oh I dunno, Rangers?

  44. Can I suggest moving this to general sports. Whilst its Rangers related, its fundamentally wrong to discuss it in the main, most visited section of the forum when we aren't allowed to debate the rest of the country's abuse in here too. It would be like doing the haters work for them. That's not to say I want it covered up, or dont want the truth to prevail. Any complicit club or individual should be hammered for their actions if proven. Which an independent enquiry has more chance of uncovering than a joke sfa one. So let's debate away, but lets do it where the other debate is then the paedo lurkers and journalists can see the full discussion. Edit: if it wanted, this is the time for the club to speak out about this and other allegations and convictions and demand independent review countrywide.
