"We have to maintain the highest levels of discipline and standards of behaviour.
If we don’t, we will be weak as a group."

Scotland's Lowlife Press

Following recent reports that two prominent journalists in Scotland have been “working” to link Rangers to the child abuse scandal that has largely been focused on Celtic and Hibs, it should come as no surprise that The Sun on Sunday yesterday made desperate attempts to do just that, with a story alleging that one former Rangers youth coach abused a Rangers youth.

The blogger “the man the bheasts can’t tame” has quite clearly identified that the journalist in question, Marcello Mega is working to an agenda.

Once again, “the man that” has nailed an individual hell bent on trawling the gutter to try and equate Rangers to the shame across the city.

I have written recently about the standards that Scotland’s main stream media need to achieve, if they are to maintain any level of integrity. It should not be the case that a professional journalist is attempting to mitigate a scandal by indulging in a scummy piece of whataboutery to move attention across the city.

Beneath the beating heart of the SNP

Written by: The Ref
Tuesday, 7th February 2017

The Scottish National Party was founded in 1934, as a result of a merger between the left-leaning Pro-Independence National Party of Scotland, and the Scottish Party, (a group of former Conservatives preferring home rule), with the aim of uniting the nationalist movement in Scotland. At the time of the merger, the home rulers' views prevailed, and the SNP rejected the goal of full independence.

The Scotland Act of 1978 made provision for a referendum on devolution, and in 1979 a referendum was held. Although the majority of those who voted, voted for devolution, those figures did not achieve the 40% of the overall electorate threshold, which would have been required to enable the result to stand.

What's worse? A vote of no confidence or no vote at all?

Next week the UK Parliament, note to SNP, that is the big house where serious matters are conducted, will hold a debate on a vote of no confidence in the Football Association (FA).


The issue here is the perception that the FA is incapable of reforming itself. It is felt that it is not representative of the wider population and that there are too many hangers on. It has been described as 'impossible for the organisation to reform itself'. 

Strong words. It seems that the FA is entrenched, myopic and lacking the self motivation to expand its demographic to reflect wider society.

It is time the King was dethroned

After reading the article by Nineteen-SeventyTwo about our manager and why it's time for him to leave, I thought I'd offer an alternative viewpoint for those of us with a differing opinion.

The main question I think that needs to be asked is, "Who exactly is at fault here, Mark Warburton or Dave King?"

Whilst I do agree with certain aspects of the above mentioned article, I am of the opinion that Mark Warburton should remain as the manager of Rangers Football Club. The reasons why I think this differ depending on the line of question being asked but it all boils down to one main point, Mark Warburton plays a style of football that Rangers fans, far and wide, have been screaming out for for years.

Time Is Up For The Manager

Written by: Nineteen-SeventyTwo
Thursday, 2nd February 2017

I have always believed that football managers should be given time to implement a philosophy in to a club, and for that philosophy to be allowed to embed and start bearing fruit, however, I have also believed strongly that this kind of approach is far more complex for Rangers than most other clubs, and that embedding a new philosophy has to be balanced with a level of pragmatism that recognises that Rangers fans require success.

Conversely, many Rangers fans, including myself, have recognised that the club is “on a journey” after a difficult few years.

I’m no Dave King apologist, and believe that he needs to explain why his promises of £30M investment have never materialised, however, Mark Warburton has no excuses for what is a consistent theme of his management; a lack of quality defenders, and a dreadful track record of away performances in the matches that matter.
