  1. Feel as this deserves a seperate thread but my daughter Toni wanted to say thank you to everyone over the last week or 2 who has donated and has drew a wee picture to say thanks. From myself genuinely can't thank everyone enough for your kindness, advice and help. Certainly between Xmas and just now is something we will never ever forget
  2. He is taking those bastards to task. This is new levels and they deserve everything that's coming to them. Here's just a short piece of the article he has written in the sun: 'ARROGANCE' celtic are losing the title & losing the plot – there’s no excuses for Dubai trip, says Kris Boyd CALLUM McGREGOR turned the ball into the celtic net at Ibrox last weekend. But it was nothing compared to the huge own goal his club have scored in the past week. Let’s get it right, this trip to Dubai was nothing short of a PR calamity. For the life of me, I can’t understand why their powers-that-be thought it was a good idea to fly Neil Lennon and his team to the Middle East during a pandemic. They go every year, do they? I’m sorry but that just doesn’t wash after the year we’ve all had. The world has changed, in case they hadn’t noticed. The Hoops jetted out just hours after losing to Rangers celtic’s decision to go away stinks of arrogance, frankly. It’s little wonder their supporters believe their board has lost all touch with reality these days because that’s the way this whole episode looks. Here’s what I think. celtic shouldn’t have gone to Dubai or anywhere else for a winter training camp. They should have been at home in Scotland playing at least one of the games they’ve got in hand. In fact, thinking back to how we at Rangers were forced to play three league games in just five days at the end of the 2007/08 season, maybe they could have got two of their extra matches out of the way. It could have been Rangers at Ibrox last Saturday then Livingston on Tuesday, Aberdeen on Friday and Hibs on Monday night. That kind of schedule was good enough for Rangers 13 years ago, wasn’t it? Remember when sporting integrity was all we heard about and how the season had to be finished before the Scottish Cup final. Hang on a minute, didn’t celtic just beat Hearts to lift the trophy seven months later than it should have been? I’m going off topic. The point is celtic seem to live by different rules from the rest of the clubs in this country. That’s how it appears yet again with the SFA compliance officer turning a blind eye to everything that went on in Dubai. Maybe the eight lads at Aberdeen who were hauled over the coals would like to know why. But then it was always going to be hard for her to throw the book at celtic when the SFA stood back and watched a conga in the Scotland team hotel after the victory over Serbia.
  3. Couldn’t have been the only one who got the fear when I seen he was starting at right back but he was absolutely immense today. Strolled it.
  4. You don’t deserve a single thing Your focus has been on rangers UEFA license rather than your playing squad Your demise has cost you a potential £30 million in champions league money Your demise will cost you 1/2 of your season ticket money at least £15 million You’ve spent more money on disco lights £10 million than you ever have a single player Your stands have been empty until Rangers came back You were beaten 8-2 on aggregate from plumbers and shop keepers You spent nearly 300k On a trip to Dubai in 40• heat to play Livingston in the snow Your obsession with us has been delightful We were 15 years and £100 million behind you In 4 years we’ve destroyed your club that much your fans can’t even relate to you anymore Now we enjoy your tears and misery Form is Temporary and Class is permanent ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️Glasgow Rangers 💙💙💙💙💙
  5. No matter how many of us are there. No matter how many poor decisions or bad passes are made - if you get a ticket you need to back the players. We have the ability to genuinely change this tie. Back the side for 90 minutes. Give Malmo hell.
  6. 3 points at a fucking shite stadium against a team of fucking jobbers we have struggled against over the past few years 9 points clear Outstanding Rangers 👏🏽👏🏽👏🏽
  7. We’ve been clearing out the loft and I found this. My late brother won it and gave it to me years ago. 😔 Signed on the front and embroidered on the back, seem to remember Ally wore it in a cup final but I don’t know the date.
  8. That is how many days I have been a member of this Forum. There will be others with more, and others with far less. Looking back it's easy to forget the pain of the last decade, but we were here in the darkest of days. Today we stand so close to one of the greatest achievements in our Club's history. "Times they have been hard, but we've followed near and far.." To Absent Friends and to the Famous Glasgow Rangers! How many days for you?
  9. Btw did a fuck well up watching that. Its superb
  10. Would love nothing more than Morelos scoring the winning goal to make us champions at their midden, and Arfield to grab Laxalt by the hair and tie him to the goal post to celebrate. We deserve this.
  11. Solidarity with Glen. Hope the scum gets hammered.
  12. Please remember the folks over the last 10 years who are not with us. I’m seriously shocked I’m here.I’ve been a baw hair away from fucking life off. But I’m here and I’m so glad I am.💙
  13. I read we were looking at 2 players there but it could just be Juan.
  14. If reading this doesn't make you proud as fuck nothing will. https://the4thofficial.net/2021/03/the-greatest-sight-that-i-have-ever-seen-as-a-Rangers-fan/ The Greatest Sight That I Have Ever Seen. What a week or so it’s been in Scottish football. celtic lost their manager; St Johnstone beat Livingston to win the League Cup, and Rangers qualified for the Europa League’s last sixteen.Add to that the inability of Hibs or Aberdeen to put any pressure on second placed celtic for the remaining Champions League spot over the last few weeks, and there’s never a dull moment in the frenzied environment that is the game in Scotland. Massive congratulations to St Johnstone. A well deserved victory saw them lift the Cup aloft. My commiserations go to David Martindale and his team; he’s doing a magnificent job at Livingston and deserves all the plaudits he’s been receiving of late.Callum Davidson has won a trophy in his first season as a manager, and his team have been steadily improving throughout the season after a sticky start to their campaign. I must say I particularly enjoyed the video footage of them rolling by celtic Park with the trophy on the bus as they headed home to Perth; that gave me a right good laugh. Neil Lennon resigned last week after another horrific result away to Ross County. Pedestrian and effectively neutered by the Dingwall outfit, they lost yet another goal from a set-piece, losing the game one-nil as a result. Adding to that, the sight of John Hughes, the Ross County manager, telling all and sundry how his team would set up live on TV before the game and what they would and wouldn’t attempt to do during the ninety minutes made the performance all the more remarkable. celtic looked lost, devoid of ideas or imagination. A sorry state to be in for a team that’s swept all before them for a decade. It’s amazing that almost half the goals they’ve lost this season have come from set-pieces, yet at no point this term have they been able to rectify that. Simply incredible. Oh, how the mighty have fallen. They look like an unhappy bunch of players, and it’s patently obvious that all is not well behind the scenes at that football club. All in all, it’s been a disastrous season for celtic, and from the outside looking in, just changing the manager won’t help them too much. Stories of infighting, players at each other’s throats and as Lennon himself put it “mitigating circumstances” are more the reason for their season imploding in October. What were those mitigating circumstances then? Could it be that issues at training, for example, players openly arguing and fighting with each other at Lennoxtown all got a bit too much for everybody? I know of one example that hints at this for sure. If you recall, Rangers travelled to celtic Park at the end of October and beat them so convincingly it surprised everybody. Well, if I suggested Scott Brown and another prominent first-team player were fighting at training in the build-up to the first Old Firm game of the season, I doubt that would be overly unexpected, would it? What would be astonishing though is if the manager dealt with the fracas only to be undermined by his own assistant. A source told me that Peter Lawwell found out what had happened, summoned the celtic captain and subsequently fined him for his role in the training ground spat. I’m led to believe it was much to the chagrin of the entire first-team squad. An already unhappy group of players with cliques among it then got angry about the entire situation surrounding the club. Deferred wages, reduced salaries, staff furloughed, players who were told they could leave then that being reneged upon makes for an unhappy camp. There’s no togetherness, no team unity, and to be frank, their inability to defend set-pieces all season alludes to a squad of players where no-one appears to be prepared to accept responsibility. That’s what happens when dreams die. When your star players expect to be allowed to leave for pastures new, when your captain and senior players have set themselves up for what they themselves hyped up as the biggest season in the football clubs history, unity is key. There’s none over in the east end of Glasgow. Every single player is an individual. A person with his own thoughts and expectations. Ajer expected to be at another club last summer, as did Edouard. There were others too. It’s been crystal clear over the season that players aren’t fit, not giving total commitment to the cause and/or doing just enough to get through games. Add that to an incapacity to defend, new signings being below the standard required, lack of managerial capabilities regarding tactics, changing formations and personally from game to game; there’s your recipe for a meltdown. The CEO is leaving, a new man coming in. His remit will be to downsize and not much else over the next two or three years. Losses will be catastrophic; a football wage bill that is guaranteed to be more than turnover will see us witness some seriously drastic action from the incoming CEO. A new manager, a new man running the PLC, and I would suggest a brand new squad of players will see a new era begin. I very much doubt celtic fans are going to like what they see. This is what you get when you tell the world you’re cash rich and winning ten titles in a row is a mere formality for so long. The tide has turned, and no matter what spin is put on the scenario unfolding at that football club, they are in for one enormous shock. Compare that omnishambles to the professionalism across the city at Ibrox, and it becomes easy to see why Rangers have been such a success this season. Eight points dropped in thirty one games with a home match versus St Mirren on Saturday next. Winning that this week will effectively end the title race. In the first week of March. I called Rangers relentless on The 4th Official earlier in the season, and if anything, they’ve become even more so than they were when I suggested it. This team is now so close to achieving monumental success, and March is going to be the defining month. In Steven Gerrard, they have a mastermind. Whatever it was he, Gary McAllister, Michael Beale and Tom Culshaw saw during the initial lockdown last year must’ve pointed them to what they felt was needed to get the consistency Rangers have shown this season. I watched Rangers play a very decent Royal Antwerp side (who sit second in the Belgian League table) over two games of football, and they have utterly blown them away. Destroyed them. So much so that they averaged a goal every twenty minutes during the tie. This is in the last thirty two of a major European competition, I might add. I don’t recall any Scottish team ever doing that you know. How conspicuous was any praise from the Scottish sports media? All I read was how many goals Rangers lost over the course of the matches. I actually found that very funny; I have to say. If Rangers lost five goals to Royal Antwerp, could you imagine how many celtic, Hibs or Aberdeen would have leaked to the Belgian side? You can double that, and you might get an idea when you consider Rangers has the best defence in the country by the length of Paisley Road West. This magnificent Rangers team now have a very tricky last sixteen tie against Slavia Prague in the Europa League. I watched them knock Brendan Rodgers Leicester City out of the competition last Thursday, and they’re a very good side indeed. Big, strong, technical and very well organised over their two games against the English side suggests Rangers will have to be at the very top of their game to get through this tie. I believe they are more than capable, but they will have to be at their best for the full three hours, both away from home then back at Ibrox for the return leg. Three points this weekend, and they are home and hosed in the SPFL. Yes, technically, they might still need a point, but that will be it, effectively done. They have been a juggernaut this season and pretty much destroyed any competition that’s been in their path to success. That doesn’t appear to be sitting too well with the Scottish media. Some journalists have even tried to suggest it’s been a dull season or a grind. Eh, not from where I’m standing it wasn’t. Some of the football Rangers have played this season has been as good as I’ve ever seen from a Scottish side. No ifs, no buts and no maybes about it. They have been sensational at times. Well. I have news for any journalists, any fans of other clubs or anyone that tries to debase this outstanding season Rangers have had. Rangers fans are laughing at you. They’re laughing at fans of other teams who’ve tried to demean the achievements so far by this quite brilliant Rangers team. Rangers have the best management team in Scotland, they have the best squad of players, they have the best fans, and that deserves to be acknowledged by the rest of Scottish football. They won’t be though, and everyone connected to Rangers knows it. That really does just make it all the sweeter. No one associated with Rangers cares, you see. As a club they’ve come from such a distance, it makes NASA’s Perseverance journey to Mars look like a quick sprint to the Co-Op at the end of the road. The journey Rangers football club has had to travel has been long, and it’s been arduous. However, Rangers supporters have backed their team and their club in the most remarkable fashion. That is why they aren’t interested in what the sports media in this country has to say anymore. The narrative isn’t for them to write anymore. It isn’t for fans of other clubs to distort the truth to undermine the Rangers brand. They can’t do it; they will try, but they will fail, and the reason for that is simple. You can’t deflect from what’s staring you in the face, you see. What the footballing public in this country has seen this season is a cohesive, structured football team with extravagant flair, tremendous team unity, a rock for a defence and a will to win unmatched anywhere on the continent. The fact the media in Scotland chooses to ignore that or belittle the achievements of this wonderful, exciting football team only puts a smile on Rangers fans’ faces. The acknowledgements from all over Europe more than makes up for it in the eyes and minds of people connected to Rangers. The plaudits received by the English media alone make you raise your eyebrow and think why don’t they get that level of acknowledgement in their own country. Then you realise that everyone connected to Scottish football, or most anyway, wanted this celtic team to win the league this season. Another opportunity to give Rangers a boot in the balls. That was what BBC Scotland wanted, Clyde FM wanted, The Daily Record and The Sun too. That’s all they want to do, put the boot in. So much so they still try it even though there’s no logic to it. That’s why reaching the last sixteen of a major tournament, something only Rangers have done for many, many years I might add, is being overshadowed by the hilarious notion that losing five goals over two games to a team better than any other Rangers face in this country should be of concern. It really isn’t. This Rangers team has lost once all season. Just once. It’s March, you know. The accolades should be getting showered down on this team from our media and opponents. This side are single handedly raising the profile of the game in Scotland. From a world superstar manager, a squad of players that are still unbeaten in European competition in March to the fact they’ve come from the semi-professional leagues of Scotland to be sitting on the verge of being crowns champions of Scotland and could find themselves in the quarter-finals of The Europa League if they can get past the Czechs. I wouldn’t put it past this team; they are more than capable of scoring plenty of goals against any opposition, and although Slavia are good, so are Rangers. I don’t and haven’t seen any other club from this nation get anywhere near close to this. Not even close, not for many, many years. Year in, year out, Scottish clubs get perennially spanked in European competition. All you need do is look at how many goals this illustrious celtic side lost in their Europa League Group. That’ll be nineteen goals in six games. Nineteen… That is only making the success all the sweeter, no-one should be in any doubt of that. This team is on the edge of legendary status whether Scotland wants to admit that or not. Also, mark my words, Rangers will never let any of them forget it. From July 2012 to March 2021, nine years is all it’s taken to go from the very bottom of Scottish football to the very top of it. Rangers are a well run, ambitious football club. The plans for the one hundred and fiftieth anniversary celebrations are so exciting too. The club has so much planned, so much set up to go, and this is something that’s gone utterly unnoticed by the media and fans of other clubs. No one at Rangers is resting on their laurels, ambition is rampant, and the quest for excellence has only just begun. As a Rangers supporter of over forty years, I have never been prouder, never been more excited, and never been so humbled by the club I love. It matters not a jot to me or anyone else what others think, does, says or write. These twisted journalists are irrelevant. Guys like Spiers, Spence and the tinfoil hat brigade of the fifth column are a source of ridicule and hilarity for us and among us. Do yourselves a favour, rein it in, for your own good because this is only the start of a period of unbridled success for the most successful football team the world has ever seen. Fifty-five is here, and it’ll be celebrated the world over. Apart from in Scotland it seems. But be assured, the rest of the world knows that what’s unfolding in Scotland is one of the greatest stories the sporting world has ever seen, and it will be celebrated all across the globe.
  15. Wow man.fuck me What a fucking sight VID-20210514-WA0077.mp4 VID-20210514-WA0076.mp4
  16. Remembering our fellow Bears and Bearettes who started the journey with us but sadly are not here at the end,for Sandy Jardine an absolute bastion when we needed one,for Johnny Hubbard who longed for this day,Salute them all
  17. People lost the plot after the Hibs game and wanted him sacked. Since then we’ve been brilliant and beaten Galatasaray and Celtic. We’re playing brilliant football. Some of the best football I’ve seen a Rangers team play in a long time. We CAN win things with this man in charge and he needs our full support.
  18. Do folk actually fucking realise what our World would have been like had they fuckers won 10???? Seriously??? I think some folk need to think really really hard about the above question, because I know for sure, that it would have been absolute fucking hell on earth for us, and for many many years to come. It would have been totally fucking unbearable. The Mhedia would be spunking themselves for weeks, months and years ahead. The SNP would have had a field day with "their team" winning it. 10 in a row banners everywhere. Work places would have been intolerable. No doubt a huge civic reception would have awaited Scum FC at The City Chambers, and George Square would have been hoaching with the great unwashed. Covid19 Restrictions would have been conveniently relaxed to accommodate these fuckers. Any trouble would have been blamed on us, or put down to exuberance or "the craic". Messages of congratulations would have rained in from the Scottish Government. BBC and STV would be tripping over themselves to show a tribute documentary every other week. Charity organisations hailing Neil Lennon as a hero of the down trodded. "Something inside so strong" being blasted across the airwaves continually. And probably many many more GIRFUY Rangers Football Club jibes and wind ups for years ahead. Yes I'm pissed off about Sunday night, but let's put it into fucking perspective, and realise what our club has achieved this season, and stopped from happening. #15thofMay2021ourdayforalloftheabove❤💙❤💙
  19. 'No one is learning anything new by saying that this Rangers side are relentless, but their record is quite frankly ridiculous. Taking 85 points from 92 on offer is a truly staggering return, and factor in 23 clean sheets and nine goals conceded from 31 games to the equation too and we really are watching one of the best top-flight teams Scottish football has seen in modern times'.
  20. In fact anybody voting SNP - take a right fucking good look at yourselves. Arseholes
  21. Think that just where Paul Hartley was sitting last night.
  22. Looking good ❤️🤍💙 can’t wait 😁

  24. Cheered the loudest when he scored. What an amazing professional been a pleasure to watch him wear the shirt.
  25. MARCUS TAVERNIER believes his title-winning brother James has found a home at Rangers. Tavernier has endured a rollercoaster six years in Glasgow since Mark Warburton signed him from Wigan in 2015. Rangers captain James Tavernier is in his sixth season at Ibrox Often a whipping boy for Ibrox fans, the 29-year-old has been forced to watch Celtic enjoy unprecedented supremacy in Scotland. Now though, the right-back has written himself into Ibrox folklore after leading Gers to arguably the most important title win in their history. Tavernier - tipped to hoover up this season's Player of the Year gongs - is entering the final year of his Rangers contract and talks are expected to open soon over an extension. And Marcus, 22, believes it would take something special to tempt his big bro to leave Govan. Brother Marcus Tavernier plays for Middlesbrough He told the Athletic: "I don’t think we realised how big the club was. “He’s found himself a home now. Before Rangers, he didn’t have that. “What’s not to like about playing for Rangers? He’s captain, he’s just won the league and he’s about to play Champions League football. "Every player can only wish to do that, so for him to leave at some point would be the hardest decision he’s made.” The Tavernier family is now steeped in Rangers - especially mum Bernie. Marcus said: “She is Rangers’ No 1 fan at the moment, she loves the club. “She won’t have anything green in the house and won’t say any words to do with Celtic or any of their players’ names! "She’s really taken it to heart about how much it means to my brother and the family.” Middlesbrough wideman Marcus hasn't met his sibling in over a year now due to the coronavirus pandemic. However, the pair speak every day and Marcus remembers a particular video call as Celtic fell to a shock loss in Dingwall in February. He said: “I called him on Facetime him when Celtic were playing Ross County and it was like he was playing against them in the last five minutes. He was basically managing County, telling them to clear it. “The journey he has gone on has been incredible. For him to be captain when they stopped 10 in a row and got that trophy back, I couldn’t be happier for him. “People don’t realise how much Rangers means to him. He’s fallen in love with the club.”
  26. Vilified, hated and in some cases ridiculed by all and sundry since day one. Well the haters can take themselves to fuck. Drink it in man!
  27. Which is absolutely packed as per a Monday morning 🤣
  28. Didn’t want shagger back due to how he left (despite being told by a long standing member he was devastated at leaving) didn’t want Davis back for similar reasons, and called for him dropped at the beginning of the season. wanted Morelos sold in the window due to attitude thought Tav was never a captain Arfield was finished Kamara wasn’t good enough Gerrard wasn’t good enough Every single one of they statements crossed my mind. And no doubt a lot of Bears. fuck me it’s good to be wrong lads eh
  29. For anyone who may be struggling we do have an outlet in which you can talk and help other members. If you're struggling and don't have access to this area of the forum please contact a Staff Member. We're listening.
  30. Dont be fucking stupid man. Thats Dutch and Turkish opposition we've knocked out. I've seen us lose to alkmaar and fener and gala before. They ties are not givens. Fucking give credit where its due
  31. I want to let a few bears celebrate tonight here who have had a tough year. Ping me a PM if you're struggling, I'm not promising riches, but a few beers on me for tonight/tomorrow. I'll limit to 5 bears plus I'll double it to include the Erskine fund. It's been one fucker of a 12 months for all of us, I'd be proud to buy many on here a pint. No surrender.
