Massive difference in attitude to our culture


Recommended Posts

WATP is used by players staff and fans alike and the Red Hand is no longer demonised. However it wasn’t always like this, under Minty Moonbeams tenure, we had Heads of Security stating we shouldn’t sing We Are The People because it’s triumphalist and I recall Alan McLaren refusing to sign an Ulster Flag because “it’s sectarian”. Indeed the club newspaper actually airbrushed the red hand and crown from a club flag, leaving it looking like a Cross of StGeorge.

Well I'm absolutely fucking fuming at this from almost 30 year ago.

Who.the fuck does Alan Mclaren think he is 

😂😂😂😂I’ve never forgiven him

 

bigger point is we’re no longer rolling over to media and political pressure.

Excellent. I look forward to the full songbook getting an airing when we're back.

We have actual Rangers fans running the club now, not someone running it to make a quick buck or to use it as a status symbol for his ego/to get into the right social circles.

We still sign catholic’s, so nothings been sorted yet.  I’ll no be back until the “policy” is back in place.

Aye that would be genius. Cut our playing options in half, maybe after that we could get the players to wear bowler hats and brogues.

Can I ask you a quick question?

What has a guy cutting off his hand in a boat race to reach the shore first, got to do with Rangers FC?
