Rangers - Standing Tall

Once again Rangers FC and our support did themselves proud on Saturday with a beautiful Poppy Display and impeccably observed minutes silence. It serves as a reminder that we are all here due to sacrifices our forefathers made, and that the armed services make today. I believe it isn't too much to ask that people in this country take some time out to remember and thank those making the great sacrifices to keep our country free from terror.

Of course a great many people do work that goes unnoticed, and we should be thankful to those too, but this is a day we remember those who made the ultimate sacrifice, and those who face great horrors today in the fight against terrorism.

Rangers as a club can stand tall, that even through our own troubles we have supported Poppy Scotland, and Erskine in particular as we recognise that a football club can be a force for good, not just a sporting endeavour.

I've been involved in football for over 40 years. I've played, watched, coached, and I've worked for the FA, as an assistant referee, referee, referees tutor, mentor, and assessor. Never have I seen such a poor display from a set of match officials, as I witnessed on Sunday in the Betfred League Cup semi-final. Let's not deflect from another poor performance from Rangers, in a match which Motherwell took their chances, but let's also not ignore the performance of the match officials.

In a week where it was widely reported that Motherwell players were looking to be very physical on Rangers players; wouldn't you think that match officials would be at the top of their game? Sadly no. Rangers players were assaulted, and the match officials did nothing. By letting the first elbow on Morelos go unpunished; the referee sent out the message that physical assault on Rangers players was acceptable.

When show racism the Red Card tweeted a picture of Phil Gillivan/White/McGillivan/MacGiollabhain this week after apparently participating in a workshop it was destined to end badly, and, to a certain extent it has.

After a number of Rangers fans contacted SRTRC online with numerous examples of Ill Phil's own bigotry and vile hate filled blogs, they sacrificed him with a couple of platitudes to soften the blow.

Remove The Cancer

Some people may be surprised at the obsessive nature of the bheasts across the city pressurising football authorities to strip Rangers of titles, or impact Rangers' UEFA licence, but here at VB towers we are well aware of the level of hatred and grievance that drives an element of the Celtic support, and apparently that also includes Peter Lawwell. 

At a normal football club, supporters full of hatred for their rivals trying to get their board (and anyone else who can help) to damage their rivals would typically be ignored, while the board concentrate on their own affairs.

Celtic are not normal, however, and neither is Scottish football. Many across the city have convinced themselves that Rangers employment of EBTs had a material impact on their club. It doesn't matter that this doesn't make sense to normal people, because it makes sense to those who have been fed grievance all their lives, and those who judge others by their own actions.

Fight Fire With Fire

Written by: 1972

One should not be surprised at two startling developments in the crazy obsession of the sevco-ists this week, namely the relevations that Celtic CEO Peter Lawwell has been agitating for further punishment of Rangers with regards to EBTS, both in 2012, and several weeks ago.

It seems that Rangers being demoted to the bottom division, losing a squad of full international players, being fined while in Administration, being penalised points in the 2011/2012 season, with the result effectively handing Celtic both a free run for 5 years at the title, and 5 years riches of the champions league is not enough.

You'd think Celtic would realise how lady luck has smiled on them, since they stopped their own EBT usage (without punishment I may add), and since former Celtic Chairman (and friend of Dawn Primarolo) John Reid's friends at HMRC moved the goalposts on tax, at the same time that Govt owned Lloyds bank, were attempting to strangle the club.
