"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

While we all know that Rangers are the biggest story for any newspaper in Scotland, and big news in the sports pages down south when it suits them, one small story in the world of Scottish Sport deserves to be highlighted today.

No, it’s not the resignation of James Easdale, as that will no doubt clog the newswires of both Rangers and Celtic followers for the next 24 hours, until the next big Rangers story.

This little news story, which should be a big news story is in fact Celtic being fined by UEFA again this morning.

As I stated in my most recent article, the conduct of the Celtic support in recent times has degenerated, with a section of their support believing that they have impunity to act as they like.

A Warning To All

To the law abiding citizens of Glasgow, especially if you are a Rangers fan, it has been brought to our attention that it may not be a good idea to socialise in the centre of Glasgow this weekend. The unsavoury element of the Celtic support, the Green Brigade, have a visitation from a faction within the Feyenoord fan base arriving this Thursday and staying for their match against Aberdeen game on Sunday, 1st of March.

The 120 Feyenoord fans that are arriving are not planning a friendly visit going by social media communications. There are threats of smashing up Glasgow this weekend and attacking “Huns” in Sauchiehall St. The Green Brigade are inextricably linked to this visit as shown below.

The Chattering Classes

A few years back I watched an episode of the BBC TV series "Who do you think you are?" The program takes a celebrity on a journey through his or her past tracing their family history, indicating the events that led to and supported their existence. In this particular episode, David Tennant, the Scottish actor who was playing Doctor Who at the time, was taken to his grandparent’s home in Northern Ireland. David’s grandfather was an Orangeman, and as part of the program he was presented by his grandfather’s sash by his second cousin. By the look on his face it was clear to see his displeasure, and later Tennant is quoted as saying:

“When Harry handed me my grandfather's orange sash, I felt that I had been handed a turd. To me, the Orange Order represents everything that is obnoxious in society. I have always associated Orangemen with right wing racism and sectarianism".

Whataboutery - The Desperate Deflection

Two of VB’s esteemed writers have already written about Stan Collymore, and his recent attention seeking rants about all things Rangers.

At this juncture I would be inclined to focus on issues within the club, rather than with bitter people that hate the club, and make it their business to sully our reputation, however, I have always believed that the job of rebuilding the club is not just a financial one.

Our club is still vulnerable, and it isn’t just from incompetent directors and their predecessors.

Sadly, while our attentions are rightly focused on the immediate task of restoring trust in the boardroom, via wholesale change of that board, we cannot ignore any longer what is waiting for us as we prepare for life back in the top division.
