"To be a Ranger is to sense the sacred trust of upholding all that such a name means in this shrine of football. They must be true in their conception of what the Ibrox tradition seeks from them. No true Ranger has ever failed in the tradition set him." - William Struth  

VB Admin Statement - Fir Park 31st May

Written by: Admin
Monday, 1st June 2015

Vanguard Bears condemn the disgraceful scenes witnessed at Fir Park on Sunday 31st May 2015 both during and after the Motherwell versus Rangers game.

In what was a hostile environment, the home fans indulged in what can best be described as hate crimes.

Fans at the game and those watching live on TV were firstly subjected to the following chant, “We f*cking hate Rangers” early on in the first half.  This clearly set the tone for what was to follow.

Are We Overreacting?

Written by: Campsie
Monday, 1st June 2015

Wakening up today my first thought was, did I over react yesterday? The answer was simple, ‘No’

What happened yesterday in my opinion was the worst result ever in our 143 years.

Why do I say that?  Simply put, we will now struggle to survive. This isn’t an overreaction, this is fact.

A new sugar daddy is required, but, not on the playing side, we need the money for the running and upkeep of our club. Ibrox is a mess, it was once the finest stadium in Europe, it’s now weary and battle scarred from years of neglect and non-existent TLC.  Ibrox needs more than just a lick of paint, she needs a complete overhaul. Not just the bricks and mortar, not just the decor, I mean she needs cleansed from top to bottom.

Shattered and suffering from sleep deprivation, big Gordy climbs on his mountain bike for the 14 mile cycle home. It’s at times like this he rues the decision to downgrade to just one family car, but needs must and every penny is a prisoner. The driving rain and head on wind would normally be a curse, but with a body craving sleep, they act as a form of stimulus. It’s the 6th night on the trot of 12 hour shifts for Gordy, and despite the 72 hour week demanding a heavy toll, Gordy welcomes the overtime.

What he does not look forward to however, is telling the kids the PS4 will have to wait, or the wife that the much needed new kitchen will have to be put on hold for the time being. The winter service on the family car Gordy will have to do himself, irrespective weather. Next year’s family holiday will have to wait for the following year. Hopefully.

One Scotland, Many Cultures and 2-Tier Justice

Written by: D'Artagnan

I suppose it sums up the mentality we are dealing with, when two sets of supposedly grown up adults forego the many possibilities and wonders the internet has to offer, and instead use it as a platform to hurl hate filled abuse at one another in the form of delightful expletives such a “hun” or “fenian”. I’m sure that’s not what Leonard Kleinrock nor J.C.R Licklider had in mind when they first tantalised the world with talk of an “Intergalactic Computer Network”.

But as if the sight of these intergalactic keyboard warriors was not bad enough, last week saw a further unedifying dimension to this battle – a blanket bombing of hypocrisy and double standards. The revelation that SNP Candidate for Argyll and Bute, Brendan O’Hara had used hate speech on a message board to describe Rangers supporters was accompanied, of course, by the almost mandatory “apology”. Amazing how remorseful such individuals are when they are exposed. I’m sure Scott Lamont was equally remorseful, but that didn’t stop him receiving a 4 month jail sentence for singing the Billy Boys. So much for the European right of “equality before the law” Orwell it seems was correct – “All animals are created equal, but some animals are more equal than others”

Statement on bigotry within the SNP

Written by: Admin
Monday, 27th April 2015

Once again Rangers supporters are subjected to hate crime, this time from SNP candidate for Argyll and Bute, Brendan O'Hara.

This bigoted, self-confessed Celtic supporter Mr O'Hara, although having since offered an insincere apology for his bigoted behaviour, thinks it is acceptable to label Rangers supporters as "Huns", a term that not only the Government-sponsored registered charity group "Nil by Mouth" deem sectarian, but the law of the country too.

To date, the SNP, who advocate an anti-sectarian initiative in Scotland, have refused to condemn O'Hara's comments and their lack of punitive action in this instance merely leads a concerned electorate to believe that they actually endorse his comments.
