I enjoy watching England v Scotland rugby games when the six nation comes around and will naturally side with Scotland and probably would with anything .
But not football . I detest the SFA , the majority of the tartan army full of super nationalists and and the thought of cheering cunts like Griffiths , tierney etc just does not appeal to me at all .
I was only a kid, but reading about Jim Farry at the SFA wanting Rangers players to be banned from playing for Rangers on a Saturday if they pull out of a Scotland squad, then a year or so later the SFA giving evidence against Duncan Ferguson to get him jailed.
I must have been about 11, but it all came together for me nicely around that time and I started to realise what the cunts were like.
I used to support all the home nations passionately when it came to international football.
Then it all went to fuck.
So much that I actually ran around my living room cheering when Gascoigne scored that goal at Wembley against Scotland for the simple reason he was my favourite Rangers player and it was a bonus that it was against Scotland. That's all that mattered. My family wanted to kill me, probably.
I don't support England at international football generally btw, but I took delight in that (and if they play Scotland as I'll support anyone against Scotland other than Republic of Ireland - even then, I still wouldn't watch it or raise an eyebrow at any score line it threw up).
2012 and the way the SFA, the SPFL, the other Scottish clubs, the Scottish sporting media have treated Rangers then let's not forget just a few months ago Scottish football coming together to award Celtic a title they never won to help them on their quest for a tainted 10 by lying, bribing, threatening, blackmailing, all which has heightened by hatred for them and actually makes me want to see them fucked in every game they play (as opposed to just not caring) - for me the Scotland national team is the epitome of everything that all stands for. That's where it all peaks out, under that one banner. I can't relate to it and they make me sick.
Then there's the YES brigade/Tartan Army, the SNP grip on Scotland, Rangers players getting boo'd, tarriers playing for them and all the other things - those things aren't the root cause of how I feel but they just make it easier for me and reinforce my feelings towards them.
I've got in arguments with folk before over this, but I can't bring myself to fully respect any self-respecting Rangers fan that cheers them on. To me it's the exact same as the ones in our support who vote SNP too. They can seem to gloss over all sorts of anti-Rangers hatred and damage to the club, just to put their fluffy notion of Scotland first.
