"Let the others come after us. We welcome the chase. It is healthy for us.
We will never hide from it. Never fear."

The Sleeping Giant

November 1985.  Rangers’ owner Lawrence Marlborough appoints the unknown David Holmes as Chairman and Chief Executive of the institution.

April 1986...rumours start to surface that Marlborough has had enough. He's looking to sell the club but knows he has to invest big time in order to sell Rangers for the best price.
Who will buy Rangers in this state? 

Cue David Holmes...for the first time since his appointment the fans now know he means business.

The world class footballer Graeme Souness is appointed player/manager of Rangers - fans the world over are stunned.

Graeme fecking Souness...nah it's a dream! He can't be the manager of Rangers...but he is.

The giant of WORLD football has finally been awakened.

The media frenzy is unseen before in Scottish Football. 

Every continent in the world is talking about Graeme Souness signing for Rangers.

Then the money starts to flow. Big signings are made. The England captain Terry Butcher moves north of the border. For those of us lucky enough to be around during those days the excitement was way off the scale.

Finally…..finally the Rangers we all knew was returning to its rightful place.

The comparisons are eerily similar but I'm not about to go overboard just now with ridiculous claims and wild aspirations.   Suffice to say I am finally beginning to see light at the end of a long dark tunnel.

Money is being spent on the stadium.
We are finally hitting back at our many detractors.
We are exposing the many Fenians in positions of power who have done their utmost to destroy us.

We have signed Steven Gerrard as manager who reminds me so much of Souness - a winner who takes no shit! 

Yes it's a big risk but what appointment isn't? 

The world's media are talking about Rangers and Gerrard.

The Bheasts hate it. Their dominance is finally being challenged on and more importantly off the park. 

6 trophies in 2 seasons and NO ONE gives a monkey’s!

Even David Mellor mentions Rangers.

SAS hero Ant Middleton talks about the Rangers. 

Make no mistake the sleeping giant that is Rangers is finally awakening.

Record season ticket sales and telling the bheasts their sectarian hatred was not allowed in our stadium was long overdue.

And once the Sports Direct situation is sorted and allows us to finally sell strips that benefit us, it will show once and for all who is the Number 1 club in Scotland. Not that we need to be told but facts are the nemesis of those who peddle fantasies and abuse children. 

I for one am quietly confident for the coming season. Dave King has many, many faults but as of now he deserves praise for the turnaround in the last 2 months. 

I can only hope he has finally realised the Paul Murray way is not what gets results.

The VB and Rangers way of tackling enemies head on and remembering the phrase NO SURRENDER is what gets results.

All the best, Mr Gerrard!
