Right troops. Where’s the Europe league final? Can we get the Baku song up and running again wherever it is? Surely Mrs swagman won’t have any disagreements with that?

Gdansk.

Gdansk Stadium in Gdansk, Poland, will stage the 2020 UEFA Europa League final.


3.) 07 Sep 2019 09:41:20
Gdansk in Poland i believe.

On board with any song that isn’t about wars from hundreds of years ago, murdering Catholics or pretending you’re from Ulster 👍.

Right troops. Not sure if this will get posted or not but here goes. I’ve been quite vocal about society being so sensitive regarding singing etc. Never negative about the team even when were struggling.

Derry’s walls,
The sash,
Fathers advice,
Build my gallows,
Every Saturday we follow,
Every other Saturday,
Blue blue sea of ibrox ,

All the above are Non sectarian.

The billy boys. (The greatest football chant in history as far as getting the team lifted and volume except for 1 word) can we change it?

We are Rangers super Rangers (1 word again but there seems to be no sanctions with this song)

As far as the UVF and YCV go these organisations have a long standing affiliation with our club and I’m not talking about terrorist organisations as these were divisions in war. Some keep saying this has nothing to do with Glasgow Rangers FC but the said organisations have been affiliated with our club for 100 years.

Other religions believe in certain things that would make our skin crawl. Every day I’m reading about catholic’s who follow us (which I think is superb as some of my best mates are catholic) who are disgusted with the songs but it was probably a lot worse when you chose us so why the hysteria now?

Is it a coincidence that the majority of the UEFA based countries are of catholic religion? They tried to destroy an institution because of a tax avoidance scheme that wasn’t illegal. They have fined us and closed areas in our stadium due to offensive signing.

They have tried to strip league titles from us. When is justice going to be served because nothing we will ever do will be as bad as 🤫 because we can’t speak about it.

Is it a coincidence that this is happening because this is the strongest we have been in years. Please don’t jump on band wagons because they are petrified that we are coming.

I respect your post and agree with parts of it however I’m going to be honest and give you my opinion.

The UVF and YCV have ABSOLUTELY NO affiliation to our club. The may be linked due to our strong Norther Irish support but those organisations have no formal relationship with the current Rangers board. Like you I think it’s fantastic we have multi religions who follow us and i couldn’t care if you are black, white, green, yellow, gay, straight, trans etc!

The part of your post regarding UEFA and catholic country’s I find frankly ridiculous. UEFA did not try and destroy us. That’s a paranoid view point. The 🤫 you are referring to is child abuse. Again nothing to do with Rangers, we are getting punished for signing songs which are viewed as sectarian and offensive. The child abuse scandal sweeping ALL of the UK will be dealt with in due course.
UEFA don’t care if we’re coming or not, This is our issue. not theirs.

Great post. the billy boys was banned before years ago. All of a sudden it has come back over last few season and your right has always or seemed to be greatest atmosphere and lift the team. derry walls is also a good atmosphere lifter. let's go with that. Although some of the new songs are decent i personally like the older ones.


3.) 24 Aug 2019 21:34:39
Sharpshooter, I’m shaking my head at some of your comments, particularly the affiliation to our club of the UVF and YCV. Rather than trying to find excuses for this unacceptable behaviour let’s just accept that the singing at Ibrox by sections of the support is out of date and totally unacceptable in the modern era. This is a deep rooted problem and dare I say is a generational problem as well. What was accepted in the 70’s and 80’s is no longer acceptable and we must do everything we can to eradicate it. When the manager, director, media, UEFA etc all voice how offensive and vile it is, we should be acting upon it and not playing the victim. Readers will probably be sick reading about this so it’s time for the talking to stop and action to be taken. There’s plenty other songs to sing, hopefully next week we’ll be singing “can we play you every week” 😀.


4.) 24 Aug 2019 22:22:20
Sharpshooter what a terrible post more than 50% of those songs have nothing to do with rangers. They are about a war that has what to do with rangers? Answer me that.


5.) 24 Aug 2019 23:26:51
87shenderson 👏👏👏👏👍.


6.) 25 Aug 2019 00:51:43
Sharpshooter we are guilty as charged as for the UVF and YCV what have they got to do with Rangers their is no vendetta accept the punishment cut out the offensive songs or add ins to songs get behind the team or if you can’t please just stay away.


7.) 25 Aug 2019 05:58:17
People are saying it’s generational etc and hoping it will die out, it won’t. Grown men are taking sons and daughters to the games getting pissed and singing sectarian songs to and from the games every single week, fact. It will continue until action taken by all supporters clubs and fan groups to change lyrics to said songs and promote on buses and in stands and even then it will take a while and displease most.


8.) 25 Aug 2019 09:31:19
Some of you have totally missed what he said here. Does the British army have no affiliation with Rangers? The Ulster Volunteer Force and the Young Citizen Volunteers were regiments that fought in the first world war. Obviously, these days they names have totally different objectives. Its a huge big can of worms lol.


9.) 25 Aug 2019 12:17:47
Absolute idiots. Derry’s Walls, the Sash, Build My Gallows?

Rangers are a SCOTTISH FOOTBALL TEAM, not a Northern Irish political institution.

See if you love Northern Ireland that much, please feel free to move there and sing your idiotic songs and give the rest of us peace.

Sing songs about RANGERS. End of.

{Ed001's Note - this is what I don't get. Why is no one singing songs about the players? You know, showing support for your team rather than something utterly unrelated to it. We used to spend hours before games trying to come up with new chants and telling everyone we knew them in the hope that they would be taken up by the stadium. Is that not a thing in Scotland? That can be so much fun, laughing at the terrible ones and then, chanting them for a laugh and realising actually it works.}


10.) 25 Aug 2019 12:20:42
C of Ibrox ok then by that logic let’s have a song at the next game about the Nepalese Gurkhas who fought as part of the British Army during WW1 and WW2?


11.) 25 Aug 2019 13:06:37
Aye great idea let's go!


12.) 25 Aug 2019 13:32:29
Ed, you’re missing the point, which is probably a credit to you that you don’t understand this mentality. To these people, Rangers and football are a distant 3rd in their priorities behind their hatred and fear of Catholics and their “loyalty” to Ulster, a place most of them have never been to and couldn’t find on a map. The funniest part of it is, I have a lot of Northern Irish pals who think west of Scotland people are absolute morons for singing about this stuff when they haven’t lived it. I remember one of my pals from Belfast absolutely rinsing some wee guy from Lanarkshire who was trying to lecture him about “heritage” and “tradition”. Just made him look like the stupid, ignorant wee boy he was. Which is what every Scottish person singing these songs is, regardless of their age. Stupid, ignorant wee boys. Stop the singing, support your team if you are really a fan.

{Ed001's Note - it is a shame because they are missing a huge part of the joy of support. Hatred is not fun.}

And I respect yours mate. The UVF and YCV were regiments in the British Army who in fact do have a strong affiliation with our club ie armed forces days at ibrox etc and our friends across the water. My post was not aimed at blaming UEFA for us getting sent down the leagues I just meant in general but having read it back I can see why this may be misinterpreted.

We are certainly not coming for UEFA either. Just Celtic. Anyway I’m not going to dwell on this just wanted a different side of things put out there and will take whatever comes my way. Cheers.

Evening lads I’m thinking about getting my old man a match day hospitality package for his birthday but there seems to be a few options. Any recommendations? Cheers boys.

Morning lads. Massive game today. Would anyone have taken where we are this morning at the start of the season? 3 points behind them and the same amount of games played? A win on Thursday to go into the last 32 of the europa league? I’d have bitten yer hand off. I know it’s very early days but we have come so far in such a short period of time. Also, what do you make of celtics “2 biggest title challengers” fighting it out with Livingston for a place in the top 6?

Everybody knows we were bang average today but here’s a question for all of the numbskulls. Would any sane bears fan on here rather we played like Barcelona and lost? If the answer is no then be quiet and stop moaning. Guys wanting players sold etc. Away game monkey off our back today and hopefully gives us the boost we need to kick on. Rangers of the previous 3 or 4 seasons would have probably drawn or even lost!

Remember last season we pumped their goal for 88 minutes and got beat 2-0. Would folk prefer that happened because we “played good football”.

Rick witter is just taking another swipe at Morelos. He can’t handle the fact that he has slated Morelos on here for months now and the wee man has started the season on fire.

Also has a great engine. Sick to death of defending Tav on here when the vultures are circling. Great to see so many of us backing him for a change.

Ed if the song is not deemed as sectarian and won’t harm our great institution then what is the problem here? . This guy seems to be a bigot himself with his own agenda.

SharpshootersPOM

{Ed001's Note - don't try and involve me with your idiocy. You are a Scottish club and you can't even show support for it because you want to sing about another country altogether! It is pathetic.}

Build my gallows was an example of our songs that is not deemed as sectarian, like many others as I have stated before. If the song is not deemed as sectarian, and it won’t harm our great institution, what is the problem? If you have a problem then it is YOUR problem. Go to Windsor park to sing build my gallows? Surely that is a bigoted comment of your own? Let’s go.

Skagman why so angry all of the time? I tried to reply to you the other night but it never got shown. Anyway regarding the singing I’m all for stopping the sectarian songs that will hurt the club but as far as the rest go ie build my gallows etc not a chance. You may have the support of a few on here but you are not in the majority of opinions regarding this. These songs have more to do with our heritage than penny arcade etc my friend. How’s about if YOU don’t like it, take the train.

Everyone who doesn’t agree with you swagman is either a fool or an idiot. Some folk may find that more offensive than getting called an orange or a f****n b*****d. I think you need to take a look in the mirror.
