  1. Mate, I understand where you're coming from. I was brought up in a Rangers supporting loyalist family. I've sang every song and been in more than a few confrontations in my youth with the tims. I'll never forget that nor do I want to.

    However I've served with guys who are catholic, some of them Celtic supporting Scottish catholics and some of those have given their life for our country - one in my presence.

    I support Rangers, I'm proud of this fact just as I'm proud of all the heritage and history of our club. But at this time of my life I'll not be a hater of someone because of an accident of birth. If they do me or my club wrong then fair enough, I'll respond in kind. Neither will I condemn fellow supporters who have none of the history that I have because they only want to concentrate on the football, that's their choice and I respect that.

    Agreed, and along the lines of my post in the other thread;

    I don't claim to know the full ins and outs of Ulster's history but I have seen the devastating results of extremism from both sides having served there and could confidently guess that a good 75% of those posting and gobbing off about "No Surrender!" have never set foot in N.I.

    I suppose what I'm trying to say is that Rangers to me are a club who I have been brought up to love and support, and not something to harbour hatred of a religious group.

    "PAPE!, HANDWRINGER!" I hear you cry but hear me out. In no way do I think it is right to sing about "the 'ra" and abstain from poppy selling, far from it considering my occupation, but I resent so called fans giving it large talking about being "up to their knees" when they haven't got

    the first idea the actual human cost associated with the N.I situation.

    I await the shifty dog eyes and taig shouts but I couldn't care less. I am a proud Blue Nose who doesn't buy into the bullshit but if it helps you sleep at night, crack on.
