Rangers will always be Rangers, even when we are long gone……
and with their history, and what eats you, is, you all know it.
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
I know that Rangers became RFC 2012.
I know that RFC 2012 still exists and is to be liquidated.
I know that Ibrix Stadium and Murray Park were sold to Sevco.
I know that Sevco became The Rangers.
I know that Rangers did not become Sevco or The Rangers.
I know that RFC 2012 did not become Sevco or The Rangers.
I know that Rangers are not The Rangers.
And I know that you know this too.

Ah yes, Dundee. A club that went into and out of Administration. They were then given a 25 point deduction as a consequence of entering Administration a second time.

Rangers, on the other hand, didn’t manage to exit Administration. That’s why the club is being liquidated. That’s why Sevco had to buy Ibrox from Rangers. That’s why they haven’t been given a 25 point deduction for starting the new season in Administration. Because Rangers didn’t start a new season in Administration. Because Rangers didn’t start a new season. Rangers will never again start a new season.

Good luck when the Pars meet The Rangers in a season or two (cup games not withstanding).

And a damn good one at that Lord Wobbly – I feel you should be elevated!

Thank you for saying ‘elevated’ and not ‘lifted’!

Spot the difference?
With acknowledgement to Angela Haggerty for bringing this to my attention:

Old Firm documentary German tv 1974: http://youtu.be/19j95pGNzI8

A fascinating insight into Glasgow in 1974. Jimmy Reid is notable for his incredibly accurate predictions of what was happening but, what I take from this is the over reliance of the power of the ‘Old Firm’. 

Scottish fitba’ is immeasurably improved by not having an all pervading ‘Old Firm’!

Somers’ sending begging letters according to Keith Jackson

It’s easily done. Too much champers loosens inhibitions.

I have to say, I thought Keith’s tweet on the subject was soooperb! 😆

What Keith (and other ‘succulents’) fail to acknowledge is that the improvement in the top flight clubs (Celtic aside) is precisely because Rangers aren’t there skewing the league with their arms race mentality to the transfer market. 

Clubs no longer need to try to keep up with Rangers fraudulent spending (and Celtic certainly haven’t been trying to buy success) so have been able to spend money on what’s best for them.

The nuclear winter was the one that Sir David Murray presided over!
