Bad news, anniversary of the Ibrox disaster on the 2nd any tribute arranged will be ruined by THEM.

I'd hope not as they were there when it happened 40 years ago. I hope they do respect the minutes silence we have. If they don't then I think we should make an official complaint to the SFA about it.

Usually I would disagree with complaining as It's a petty thing but not if they done anything this time, and if they did it should be treated as a major incident seeing that 66 people lost there life's that day.

thats shite ! a wanted a new years day fixture against the scum, the atmosphere would hav been even better than it usually is !

Would cost our club 3 times more than normal as we'd have to pay the club staff bonus for working new years day, and the police get triple pay for new years day. Thats why it was moved.

Thats exactly it - 66 INNOCENT people died, and whats more, it was an old firm game it happened at, so i'd expect common sence from them.... yeah, common sence, i just read what i said. But still, you'd expect it.

They will not respect any silence, but I just hope that Jardine has no say in it, or we will all be clapping like fucking seals.

Do the right thing, Rangers.

No way in HELL should we clap the dead. That would be a disgrace and not a mark of respect. IGNORANCE it would be. Clap for a goal, Clap for something good, you are SILENT for a tragic event. Can you imagine at a funeral "And lets bow our heads, and have a small applause for the deceaced".

Should be a minutes applause so they canny spoil nuthin the rhats

Dont bow to them! Silence is the only way. if they want to show themself up, let them, they will be the ones who get the reprimand from the SPL and SFA and will show their club up to waht it is. SILENCE is the only way! NEVER aplause.

IMagine the familys of those killed, would they be happy with an applause?! i knwo if it was me i woudl not be! When they read out the 2977 who were killed on 9/11, i would be upset if they started an applause, its an emotional day as it is
