  1. I want the club to take meaningful action over discriminatory chanting and unacceptable behaviour, and that Union Bears statement is an embarrassment. They create a good atmosphere but they're now bringing the reputation of the club down. In saying that, if we're putting our own house in order we need to make damn sure that the other lot are doing the same. We need to be highlighting every discriminatory thing that they have done in the recent past, and do in the future, and ensure that it is publicised as much as possible and that action is taken. I'm glad that we're taking action, but let's not allow this to be turned into a one-way street.
  2. Delighted with this. With cases rising and the potential for new variants it’s beyond time we stop indulging anti-vaxxers.
  3. It was forgotten in the aftermath of the Malmo defeat in Sweden, but I thought his hold up play in the first half was absolutely superb. There's clearly elements of a good player in there, whether there's enough to put together a striker who scores regularly I don't know. He's probably not going to get the chance to find that out here so best of luck to him - always tried hard and seemed very professional.
  4. Dirty bastard. On a related note, I'm sick of our team being a bunch of son-in-laws. Too many times opponents put in bad challenges against one of our players and we just half-heartedly shout at them. The guy just kicked our prone keeper in the head, we should be right up in his face.
  5. Cool. And I can only presume that you're fine with the eye gesture too. I'm not going to engage any further on this, but I'll leave you with one final point. Ask yourself if your reaction would be the same if Rangers had a Japanese player and this footage emerged from a celtic supporter bus. I think we both know the answer.
  6. "Kudela got caught up in the moment and inadvertently made an arse of it. Love how so many gimps on here have lived such a perfect life that they get to have moral outrage and judge others." I somehow doubt you posted the above after the Slavia match. If you're truly against racism you call it out all the time, not just when it's convenient for you.
  7. What the fuck even is half this thread? A section of our own support have racially abused a player and in doing so tarnished the name of the club. They've done it at a time when the club is running a high-profile campaign to promote equality, tolerance and inclusivity. They've done it six months after one of our own was subjected to racial abuse by an opponent. Instead of immediately condemning the idiots on the bus, a sizeable number of people here seem more upset that "the sanctity of the bus" is being violated. I'm sorry that it's not the 80s anymore and you can't just sling around whatever slurs and insults you want, but if this is what goes on on your bus then it doesn't need protected, it needs a giant fucking spotlight shone on it. Get these fans banned and give tickets to people who won't shame the club.
  8. I’m normally someone who goes along to games and is less vocal than average. I’ll cheer when the team come out, applaud good play, jump up for goals etc but I’ve never been one for singing. I just like to study the game and take it all in, plus to be honest feel a little self-conscious belting out songs around strangers. But on Tuesday I am going to be a fucking foghorn. Absolutely ready to scream myself hoarse backing the team. Can’t wait.
  9. My only concern is how long it will take Alfie to get back and firing on all cylinders. He reminds me a bit of Rooney in that he always takes a while to get up to speed after an injury lay-off or a period without playing.
  10. Absolutely this. It'd be one thing if conspiracy nuts who chose not to be vaccinated were only endangering themselves, but they're a breeding ground for new variants that could potentially be more infectious, more deadly and/or resistant to the vaccine. Their selfishness could put literally all of us back to square one. If you don't want the vaccine, fine. But don't play the victim when you don't get the same rights as those of us who have carried out our civic responsibility.
  11. Don't think so. First Minister has just said that, for the moment, large scale sporting events will still have to apply for a licence. I would expect capacity to be at 75%, but would love to be wrong.
  12. You're totally right. As much as I can't stand the two Edinburgh clubs and Dundee Utd, having traditional clubs with (by Scottish standards) big fan bases and stadiums adds to the league far more than three-stand Hamilton ever will.
  13. What baffles me is the mental gymnastics it takes to not understand that players expressing anti-racist sentiments and saying that “black lives matter” is not the same as supporting the organisation named Black Lives Matter. I feel at this point like people are being wilfully ignorant of this fact so they can keep criticising the organisation as justification for their booing.
  14. Will be applauding in support of our players. If they think it's the right thing to do then we back them.
  15. I have "--" in my order history with a price of £0 and showing as purchased. No idea if this will be a ticket or a pass for RangersTV.
  16. I’m already in love with Sakala. Look at his wee happy face 🥺🥺
  17. Great first half performance, regardless of the score. Sakala looks like a really smart acquisition and I've been really impressed with his movement and link up play. Lundstram looks like he has the drive and power to do a real job in the middle for us. Scott Wright has been great as well. Watching us actually play positive, passing football against Real Madrid (even in their weakened state) is just such a world away from when we were shitting the bed against the likes of Progres and Forfar. I don't think I'll ever take it for granted after the last decade.
  18. McGregor. Only thing that lets him down is his distribution, which is awful. McLaughlin is a big improvement in that area but it's not enough for him to take the number one shirt.
  19. I park on, or as close as I can, to Gower St in Pollokshields. Then just walk over the motorway bridge and you come out on to Kirkwood Street, just behind Paisley Road West. About a one mile walk and 20 mins all in.
  20. You’re right about Collins, he has had a really good post-season and definitely has the needle that would appeal to any team trying to compete. He and Ayton might be the two players who have come out of these Playoffs with the biggest boost to their reputations. Young definitely seems to lean in to the pantomime villain but like you said the league needs polarising players like that. The absolute vitriol the NY crowd threw his way and the shit he gave them back was one of the best parts of that series. Either way this has been a brilliant post-season so far. While it’s crap to see so many injuries, it’s added such a level of unpredictability to it all and the fact that one of the Hawks, Bucks, Suns or Clippers is going to win the title is a great change of pace.
  21. Can we talk about Trae Young? What an absolute baller. The Bucks didn't play quite as stupidly as normal last night and still lost home court advantage. I'd still expect them to just about have enough to see off the Hawks but bloody hell they don't half make things hard on themselves. Still hoping for a Suns title win. Would absolutely love it for CP3 after the career he's had.
  22. The fact that I'm pleasantly surprised at the squad tells you how low my expectations were. Glad that Patterson, Gilmour and Turnbull are in, but absolutely baffled as to why Ryan Gauld is continually overlooked.
  23. Really disappointing that we're still going with betting companies. Makes us look like every other team and sends the wrong message, given the harm they do to society. Hopefully Government action will crack down on these companies being sponsors.
