I am sure that irrespective of being the establishment club, had the sad events of 1971 ocurred in this decade there would have been a demand from all sides for blame to apportioned and prosecutions to be instigated if appropriate. We do live in a very much more open environment than 45 years ago.
I hope that the Ibrox infrastructure is now sufficiently sound and those who chose to attend that ground do so safely.
I have to say that I have not attended that stadium since the late 1960s.

I agree whole-heartedly with UTH that Thatcher changed things for the worse but I think much of her legacy was a result of using other peoples’ greed to her own advantage politically. The selling off of council houses and mass privitisation being the obvious areas. thing is, if the Argentinians hadn’t invaded the Falkland/Malvinas islands she’d have been out in 1984. I wonder though why she didn’t get to privitising the railways before she was emptied by her Tory colleagues for the poll tax fiasco.

Jock Stein wasn’t a great player but he did play in the top Scottish league and intoduced a lot of new thinking to the Scottish game.

Won Dunfermline the Scottish Cup after a miraculous escape from relegation. Then did OK with a team from Glasgow.

Given their dependence on loans from “investors” to continue trading as a going concern, is the financially distressed club in contravention of the EUFA FFP rules? 
And therefore would they be permitted to compete in a EUFA tournament should the qualify on sporting merit?
On the subject of investors, does anyone know how much Club 1872 has made available to the board, and how many shares that has allowed to be allocated?

In today’s Dunfermline v Queen’s Park match programme the following appears on page 13 in a regular feature containing trivia about today’s opponents:
“some seven years earlier, some 95,722 saw Queens play the original Glasgow Rangers in the Scottish Cup”. (my emphasis)
I wonder if the Par’s programme editor or the article’s author will experience the wrath of the fans of the current entity that plays at Ibrox.

Did Stewart Regan Ken Then Wit We Ken Noo?
Jeffreys Henry’s review wasn’t that thorough. The chairman says that retail income suffered from the closure of the Glasgow airport shop and it has been open every week that I’ve flown out of Glasgow.

A Sanity Clause for Xmas?
A few questions:

could it be Doncaster made the same club statement to ensure the SPFL received its fine from Rangers?

also if/when administration occurs that there is no doubt how many points are deducted?

if you think back to the early 1980s who remembers average gates at Ibrox of sub 15,000?

Rangers fans are very fickle, they will not turn out to watch a team that isn’t winning – I think the boycott is a subset of those who have realised that their beloved Gers are in fact a pretty poor side and feel very uncomfortable turning up at Ibrox and the other Championship stadia with a serious doubt that they will be leaving with 15 minutes to go with 3 points in the bag.
