Is anyone hearing that Tim Iroegbunam was at Auchenhowie yesterday along with Dowell? It's being reported on other fans forums that he was, and might be signing.

Also, I see Tillman has updated his Instagram with an image of him in a Rangers top. Might mean nothing?!

Big Ben72

1.) 25 May 2023 12:32:13
Hopefully it’s true about Tim Iroegbunam he looks proper good.

2.) 25 May 2023 12:37:02
Big Ben strong Lillie hood.

3.) 25 May 2023 12:55:53
It's looking like we've most of our transfer targets identified for this summer, hopefully we can get our business done early, give the players a chance to settle.

4.) 25 May 2023 13:19:51
Tim Iroegbunam recently undergone unknown surgery so wonder if the link is pure speculation - would prefer us to sign players who are fit as we have been stung in past.

5.) 25 May 2023 15:27:11
If he’s undergone surgery then he’s a stick on to come to us. I never realised Dowell had as many injuries until I seen a report this morning.

6.) 25 May 2023 15:31:46
I done a bit of reading on this Tim Iroegbunam and he sounds like a good player, and someone Beale really rates. Beale said he trained with the first-steam at Villa and has the potential to be an EPL level player. Beale said he can play as a 6 or an 8. It was also Beale who took him to QPR on loan before he left.

The lad himself is 6’2 and is a big physical 19 year old. He said he loves getting stuck in and would rather prevent a goal than score one.

The problem is, Villa know his potential and have him on a contract until 2027. Would they really be prepared to let him go? I doubt it. On loan maybe but that’s about it.

7.) 25 May 2023 15:48:04
Not another midfielder, honestly how many are we going to be linked to.

8.) 25 May 2023 16:06:08
I hate to say it, but Dowell is a massive risk! We seem to have a habit of signing quality players, who all have horrific injury issues, in the blind hope they're over the worst of it and will go on to be a success. It hasn't worked, so far!

9.) 25 May 2023 16:09:53
Jim we need midfielders I suspect both Kamara and Lundstrum will leave this window and Jack quite simply is unreliable fitness wise.

10.) 25 May 2023 16:16:56
Agreed Jfm. Think our midfield looks pretty much sorted. Crying out for wide players and ST. Matondo and Sakala are not the answer going forward.

11.) 25 May 2023 16:56:20
Dowell is high risk? On a free and was on 7.5k at Norwich.

12.) 25 May 2023 17:40:11
His bonus and wages are probably costing us 2m over his 3 years.

13.) 25 May 2023 18:03:22
G4 we don't need as many as we've been linked with.

14.) 25 May 2023 18:06:38
It doesn't matter if he's a free! What's the point in paying someone thousands each week If their injury issues come back and bit us on the arse?!

15.) 25 May 2023 19:07:08
But he's not wrong he is low risk.

16.) 25 May 2023 19:12:33
Big Ben, I can't find a list of those horrific injury issues that
Dowell has had, just an injury in 2020 and one at the start of this year, so can you help me out by posting the whole list, mate?

17.) 25 May 2023 20:18:50
So you must have seen how long he was out for with each injury?! Don't try and be a smart arse, you don't need me to tell you anything! I hope?!

18.) 25 May 2023 22:29:28
I found an injury list a bit longer than that, but can't find it now lol ? can only find one similar to rid, hopefully he kicks on at our club he is a very good player likes a goal, played about 1100/ 1200 minutes this season 5 goals, he also sets up many big chances.

19.) 25 May 2023 22:45:42
Is this another boy getting it in the neck before he has even played a game for us.

20.) 26 May 2023 06:06:39
How is he getting it in the neck, Storm? Behave yourself, and curb the dramatics. Nobody is questioning his ability, only his injury history. ?.

21.) 26 May 2023 06:48:05
This is from a Norwich fan on another forum.
Dowell is a very talented footballer and great from dead balls. He was Norwich's best player up until he got injured, and only played 65 games over 3 seasons because of injuries. His 2 main injuries were his ankle, which required surgery (kept him out for 91 days), and a knee ligament injury (6 weeks out), which is his latest injury.

So, please tell me, how is this boy not a risk? cannot wait for some of the answers! ??

The boy has obvious talent, but so did Roofe, Helander, Jack and Souttar, but just like Dowell, every one of them had well documented injury issues.

22.) 26 May 2023 09:51:31
Ben, here's hoping his injury record improves with us, the fact Norwich fans said he was their best player is good, time will tell how good a signing he'll be.

23.) 26 May 2023 10:03:07
It all comes down to that old saying, Mark, 'If he stays fit'! If he does, we've won a watch. If he doesn't, the medical team's jobs are safe.

24.) 29 May 2023 19:08:13
Agree Ben, time will tell.



23 May 2023 20:36:12
So, Dowell is a done deal and S Wright will sign for Preston. Right, who's next?

Big Ben72

1.) 23 May 2023 23:30:14
Dujon Stirling would be my guess.



19 May 2023 19:58:42
So, the Jack Butland transfer might still be on! Apparently, the lad is putting football before money?!
I've always wanted the boy at Ibrox, class keeper!

Disclaimer- If the story is not true, and he does actually want the money more than the football, then I have never wanted him here in the first place, crap keeper. Honest! ?.

Big Ben72

1.) 19 May 2023 21:36:12
Got it BB, I agree.

2.) 19 May 2023 21:48:58
Hahahaha, brilliant!

3.) 19 May 2023 21:52:10
Love it Big Ben 72. I won’t be unhappy if he signs.

4.) 19 May 2023 22:09:05
??? love it ?.

5.) 19 May 2023 22:28:46
I thought there was a good chance he could do that big ben only just turned 30 mate very young for a keeper but i don't know if I'm happy about this yes top class keeper but a bit of me feels sorry for Mcgrorie and i wouldn't have minded another keeper being signed and challenging him for the first team, if Butland does sign we know he's our number one keeper next season, hopefully we don't lose Mcgrorie now because we will regret his in a year or two.

6.) 19 May 2023 22:52:14
Think we already have a class keeper in mccrorie if we just give him a chance.

7.) 19 May 2023 23:18:11
Class as always BB ?.

8.) 19 May 2023 23:54:11
Mcrorie gets the shirt until he loses it for me
Anyone else who ever it is comes in as a number 2
Not sure what mccrorie can do now if he doesn’t get the number 1
No offence but if he doesn’t get it - if I was him I would be out the door anyway I could if he really wants to be number 1 and play football -
if he’s happy being number 2 or 3 and continue getting paid to do that then that’s up to him.

But for me he deserves number 1 and go from their.

9.) 20 May 2023 00:12:12
Enjoying your post BB.

10.) 20 May 2023 00:31:37
If you look at the big picture England don’t have that many top class goalkeepers Pickford could be playing championship only leaves is it Newcastle and Arsenal keepers and they have not covered themselves in glory so if it was me ( and it’s not) regular games and European matches, I’m going to Rangers.

11.) 20 May 2023 00:52:32
Mcrorie and Christiansen would be my 2 GK's fighting for No1 spot, with a young lad from the reserve team taking 3rd choice spot.
For 2 mill tops that us sorted with a very talented solid keeper that has got years left in him at only 27 guy could play for the next decade for us, of we could sell him on after a few great seasons.

12.) 20 May 2023 01:25:41
I agree 100% scrambled but like the arsenal keeper mate, stingo that is my worry he is 25 now and needs first team football if he goes i believe Rangers will regret this in a year or two he has the potential to be a top class keeper.

13.) 20 May 2023 01:52:45
After thinking more about it if we do get Butland then we have a top class keeper now, hopefully Mcgrorie stays tho.

14.) 20 May 2023 02:43:18
My honest opinion is we need to find a good young keeper as back up to McCrorie. He has played well in 2 tense old firm games. We gave Goram and McGregor a chance at some point and look how they turned out…both blue through and through. McCrorie could be the next best Gers keeper.

15.) 20 May 2023 05:23:24
If/ when McCrorie makes his 1st mistake they will be people on here saying he is never a number one.

16.) 20 May 2023 07:17:28
I'm still concerned about signing a goalie that hasn't played regular first team football for years.

17.) 20 May 2023 08:15:52
Yes storm only people that's not very clued up on the game tho, every keeper makes mistakes, look at the world class keepers at Liverpool Manchester City and Manchester United they are good for a mistake but still world class keepers, they make a mistake it's normally a goal.

18.) 20 May 2023 08:42:59
Correct, Beale! Every keeper makes mistakes, from the average to the very best out there.



15 May 2023 08:02:17
Did anyone's see Luis Palma's social media post last night? Coupled with the fact he was on the bench, could he be on his way? Hope so! Has anyone seen this boy's stats? Impressive!

Big Ben72

1.) 15 May 2023 08:42:13
I think it confirms that he’s moving but doesn’t tell us anything about where he’s going. Now their season has finished we can hopefully get it over the line asap.

2.) 15 May 2023 08:42:29
Definitely suggests he is on his way somewhere. I'm just not convinced it's us.
He looks good on the clips I've seen but I am really nervous spending so much around a Central American who is playing in Greece. seems a big risk. Especially with recent failures in the position.

3.) 15 May 2023 08:43:36
He's the type of quality player we need, I'm hoping we can get our business done early, I believe pre season starts june 30, it would give players time to settle.

4.) 15 May 2023 09:45:50
Want to get some of them over the line before they go on their holidays. Get them signed let them enjoy their break and prepare for the hard work that lies ahead. Hope Beale does a hell of a lot more running than Gio did as it took us weeks to get fit and I would bet that’s been part of the reason we’ve had so many injuries.

5.) 15 May 2023 10:12:47
I'll wait till I see him play before judgement as quality wingers with us and in Scottish football are very hit or miss.

6.) 15 May 2023 12:27:15
Mark genuine question. Do you watch a lot of Greek football? Is he very good? Cheers.

7.) 15 May 2023 13:38:29
Orange, I don't watch Greek football, but when we're linked with a player, sometimes I look them up online, as Big Ben had posted his stats are good, I'm reading as many as 10 clubs are in for him, that would indicate that other clubs rate him, who knows whether he'll be any good if we sign him, Itten looked a good signing, a Swiss international, we all know how he turned out, I'd rather sign players like palma than any player from the spl.

8.) 15 May 2023 13:55:57
Am waiting on a signed top fae big Souttar for a charity game av got end July for the auction. Might be better hanging off until pre season starts get the new signings on the top.

9.) 15 May 2023 14:12:38
I'm the same as you, Mark, when it comes to this boy. His stats are impressive, and there is meant to be genuine interest from a number of teams. So much so, that we are not seen as favourites to sign him.
Let's face it, it won't be that difficult for him, or any other decent winger, to come in and do a better job than Kent, would it?

10.) 15 May 2023 14:41:40
Rangers can offer Palma a big wage, potential Champions League football, the Old Firm games, and a stepping stone to a top 5 league. I think we’re in with a real chance of getting this guy.

11.) 15 May 2023 15:40:18
He's two footed and hits a decent free kick but his numbers are in a suspect league we need to be careful not to pay too much.

Here's a sobering list

Sionko/ grezda/ matondo/ Kent/ diallo/ Middleton/ Jones/ barker/ ojo/ Murphy/ ejaria/ dodoo/ nemane/ Forrester/ ohalloran

Our record on wingers ain't exactly great ?.

12.) 15 May 2023 16:03:14
Gofor, I can't believe we signed some of those players, agree reg paying too much.

13.) 15 May 2023 19:40:46
Motundo will give a solid season next.

14.) 15 May 2023 20:43:30
Tbf to palma he plays for a mid table team in a league that is notoriously poor for scoring goals, Andre Grey is a half decent striker and palma has more goals than him from a wide position.

15.) 15 May 2023 21:30:30
Gofor, it is a disastrous list but worth remembering where the club was when some of those earlier signings were made. But some of them ?‍♂️.



12 May 2023 13:02:49
Does anyone know If there's any truth in our bid for Palma has been accepted, and we're now in negotiations with the player?

Big Ben72

1.) 12 May 2023 15:10:33
Big Ben appears to be the case.

2.) 12 May 2023 15:12:08
Rags reporting it, not sure what to make of that but would be a terrific signing for us if true.

3.) 12 May 2023 15:12:41
Hope it true big ben but am the same are yourself.

4.) 12 May 2023 15:28:17
Gustavo looks like he could be a good signing for us.
Down to money now.

5.) 12 May 2023 15:39:20
His agent did say that a naive to England would be to complex just now. So maybe that has put us in a good position to get him just now. then sell him to an English team in a few seasons.

6.) 12 May 2023 16:24:48
This lad looks the part n seems a workhorse as he's not shy in trying to win the ball back to create his own chances, n can take on players

This was one i was hoping and excited about, hope we pull this off, as exactly what we are needing.

7.) 12 May 2023 16:34:44
Hope he can handle minus 10 at Aberdeen in December lol.

8.) 12 May 2023 17:36:53
Read that we are in with a real shout to sign him due to work permit conditions in England. Apparently it's less red tape so easier to sign for a Scottish club.

9.) 12 May 2023 18:33:42
Not a player I know anything about, but sounds promising!

10.) 12 May 2023 19:25:14
I missed it what is the rumoured fee.

11.) 12 May 2023 19:48:17
A two footed winger that can score and hit a decent free kick

Yes please!

12.) 12 May 2023 20:07:06
All I've seen of him is he likes to arrive late at the back post. It'll do for me.

13.) 12 May 2023 20:57:30
Palma looks real quality. His ability to hit a dead ball looks nothing short of top class. I really hope we get this one over the line.

14.) 12 May 2023 21:50:24
i think this is a goer. if u look back at my previous name stevie 2 u will see i first put this rumour to the page and was somewhat rubbishd as another name. seems was true acrer all and he's meant to be some player. man utd have been scouting him, but as another poster brilliantly explained which i disnt undestand previously the point system fir players means he's unlikely to go england so we are an excellent option for him.
genuinely feel he's fonna be our "big" signing this summer.

15.) 13 May 2023 09:37:10
I hope we do get this lad he seems the next big part of our puzzle, his abilities would be class, can use both feet, run, tackle, score, shoot, freekicks he's got it all, n we are lucky with the point system as few suiters down south sniffing,

This would be a shrewd piece of buisness.

16.) 13 May 2023 14:57:29
Palma to Gers looks very likely now, we will find out soon.
Hopefully we get the Haji lad too both players that fit Beale's player profile.
Announce Solbakken already c'mon man ;)

29 Jul 2023 18:43:46
Why is there so many waxing lyrical about Lammers? What do some see in him? Why do some think he is special?

Yes, it looks like he can score! Yes, it looks like he has bags of talent! Yes, he has quick feet, and can dance past defenders! Yes, he works hard for the team and puts a shift in! Yes, he's good in the air! Yes, he's been our best player during pre-season!

However, even with everything I have listed, here is my worry. If you take everything I listed away from him, what exactly does he bring to the team?!

Big Ben72

1.) 29 Jul 2023 21:31:03
If I took everything away that you said, then I wouldn’t see this post either. makes no sense.

Lammer is an exceptionally gifted footballer and will only improve as games go on.

You forgot his German efficiency bb.

3.) 29 Jul 2023 21:48:52

8.) 29 Jul 2023 23:21:42
Big Ben you are either the best in the word at sarcasm or a fella that's never seen a football match before ?. Can't be listing all those positives followed by that comment surely.

9.) 30 Jul 2023 01:41:10
C’mon guys it’s his way of saying “I like Lammers” ?.

10.) 30 jul 2023 02:08:58
put that rod away ben.

11.) 30 Jul 2023 09:24:53
Jesus Christ on a bike! How can anyone take anything negative from my post?! Surely you can't be that dense?!

The thing is, Tom, I wasn't even trying to get bites! It's quite obvious (well, not to everyone), that I was waxing lyrical about the boy, and how good he is, and the bit at the end was just adding to how highly I think of him. But no, it was just too much for those few who only see what they want to see. ??.



28 Jul 2023 18:11:45
Out of the last 3 seasons, the only one we should use as our benchmark is the 55 one when we won the league. Taking that into consideration, and judging our top players during that campaign, is our new recruits better, worse, or on a par with the ones who have left, or will not play for the club again? Have we replaced McGregor, Davis, Kent, Helander and Morelos with better players? Worse player? Or on a par with players?

I know it's difficult to really give a definitive answer just now as we really don't have that much to go on, so I'm only looking for a general opinion?!

Is any of our new strikers better than Morelos? Is Butland better than McGregor? Is Lammers or Sima better than Kent? Have we a better defender than Helander in the team? We could really only use Souttar here, or Trusty if he signs, for the Helander question.

Big Ben72

1.) 28 jul 2023 20:23:25
the thing is ben, winning mentality, rangers had players as good as celtic, but celtic stepped up with ange and rangers players accepted being second, or couldn't find a way to win again, the 55 season was unique in how it played out, it was the following season we were left beind, up untill only a few weeks agop we still had kent/ morelos, and connor and tav are still here, this was tha major elements of our team, they didt rise up to the challenge celtic put . imo its time to clear the defence now and if were serious about a rebuilt the we need to sell before its too late . and build a new defence.

2.) 28 Jul 2023 20:42:51
Good question ?? I’m hoping we strengthen the defence but I’m looking forward to seeing how the new team looks at Killie.

3.) 28 Jul 2023 20:44:42
Lammers scored more than kent all last season leave the past in the past its about the now.

4.) 28 Jul 2023 20:49:13
I think thtas a great question for the banter page, need time to think about it. For a quick reply we are stronger or at least the same in every position but left back, we miss Bassey.

5.) 28 Jul 2023 20:55:36
Butland can't be any worse than mcgregor from last 2 seasons anyway so definitely upgrade. Am sure our players will out score kents 5 goals in 2 year. Unless were talking assisting the assister.

6.) 28 Jul 2023 21:16:13
Ben, time will tell how good the recruitment has been this window, I thought we did well last summer, signing players like Davies and Matondo, both turned out poor signings, we certainly can't fault our board this window, Beale has been backed.

7.) 28 Jul 2023 22:57:34
I’d guess they’re a damn sight better than Kent and Alfie were for us last season!

8.) 28 Jul 2023 22:58:19
I believe we've got the best squad since returning from the lowers league, so yes big ben.

9.) 28 Jul 2023 23:20:43
On 55 our last game v Celtic at 4-1 V our squad now

Tav Goldson Simspson Borna
Kamara Davis Aribo
Roofe Morelos Kent

Bench - Hagi, Dafoe, Itten, Wright, Stewart, King, McLaughlin

2023 atm
Tav Goldson Souter Ridvan
Cantwell Raskin Dowell
Lammers Danilo Dressers

Bench - Cifuentous, Lawrence, Sima, Jack, Lunny, Hagi, Borna, Sterling, Roofe.

IMO we have not only stepped up player quality, in addition legs that can run the yards required to win top end games and also character that MB has checked. I am quietly confident with all 3 attributes in place and maybe 1 more addition also we will be an unstoppable force 2023/ 2024.



Rangers Pre Season Friendlies Don't Paint A True Picture

{Ed's Note - Big Ben72 has posted a new article entitled, Rangers Pre Season Friendlies Don't Paint A True Picture

Big Ben72

1.) 28 Jul 2023 09:12:30
@BigBen72-Only thing I disagree with is Hagi, the lad looks fitter and bigger than before his injury and I believe he deserves this season to prove himself. Yes to the rest though ??

As for the friendly games? Nothing in them, we played well against Newcastle considering how much that team cost and the majority have played together for 2 seasons so apart from a slip at the end we did ok. Hamburg I did expect a win but they are also a good side who were close to going up last season, Olympiacos was disappointing however look at those 3 teams, they are of a higher calibre than what we will face in our league and I include the mhanky mhob in that as well. Beale will know his starting 11 and we should see it against Hoffenheim minus Goldson of course, Souttar for me has been excellent as he looks more comfortable in the right side so for me he Starts.

2.) 28 Jul 2023 10:36:52
Decent read that, tend to agree with most of it, I said in a previous post I'm not worried about the friendly results. But I am concerned about our identity on the pitch and our style of play as I can't really tell what it is yet. I'm sure it'll click together soon and we'll not only get results but performances to match.

FFS, I preferred it when you short and sweet in your replies! ?
Good post BigBen, but unfortunately for some it's the nature of beast to mump and moan at the slightest thing.
The true test of this team and Beale is the Killie game. Everything else is preparation to get us there and be ready for the challenge ahead.

2.) 27 Jul 2023 10:42:30

4.) 27 Jul 2023 11:47:03
Very good Big Ben, fair assessment of the players, only thing I would add is that I really don't think Yilmaz is the answer to replace Borna who does need replaced.
Anybody know a good left back looking for a move?

5.) 27 Jul 2023 11:47:53
Exactly BB

The payers you mention that don’t have a future with us Lundstrum, BB, Davies and Hagi and possibly Matondo, McLaughlin should all be sold on

the new players are just settling in think Sima will come good just needs time I reckon

Lammers has been a standout so far for me

2 new players in Danilo and Cifuentes still to come in and strengthen the team
think Lawrence has a big role to play and think he will be good once fitness levels back up

I’m not panicking over these fixtures so players need fitness levels up so still to gel and some on shop window

Olympiakos were playing that game last night as if it was a qualifier

MB looked relaxed and calm as he knows it meant nothing other than what we have pointed out

We will see the real team and the real intent come the real qualifying round

We have a lot of technically gifted players in the squad who will come good when it matters I reckon

Definitely no time to panic just enjoy seeing the players on the pitch getting fitness up and getting time to gel before we get down to the real deal

I agree Ben 100% apart from maybe giving hagi a bit of slack and worried ( hopefully unfounded ) about dessers as well as sima.

7.) 27 Jul 2023 12:10:42
My only concern of Dessers, Mols, is his fitness. If he stays fit, he'll be a player for us.
I like Hagi as a player, and love his attitude, but he's a luxury player who doesn't do anywhere near enough for the team. In all his time here, can anyone really say he's been a success?

8.) 27 Jul 2023 12:44:26
Before Hagi got his injury he was let's say not performing very well and was needing dropped. Yes he can pick out a nice pass or hit a good shot but these moments are few and far between. I would't be sad too see him sold.

Good piece Big Ben, the players that we moaned about last season are still involved at the moment, Davies Matondo Lundstram Barisic Hopefully we can move these players on soon . Football is not a complicated sport a manager must identify the system he wants to play and stick with it, I appreciate that sometimes it may need tweaking but not on a game to game basis. I hope MB knows his system and doesn’t try to get too clever. I think the two boys coming in may well provide the spark that’s missing.

Lundstram . That was maybe the worst 20 mins I have ever seen from a single player in a rangers jersey last night. Continually gave the ball away and his weight of pass was school boy. His movement, anticipation and space awareness was dreadful. How many touches does he need before he shifts it on? and his tackle that screamed “I’m miles off the pace here” he should have got a red for that. I was always a big fan but that was final straw for me. get him moved on and use Rice for his minutes. I’m not one to criticise on here but out of the shape (far too narrow) our defensive errors (left side needs replaced) and lack of creativity Lundstram performance has me shaking my head in disbelief.

Bang on BB, maybe a bit blunt at bits but true.

12.) 27 Jul 2023 13:09:04
BigBen blunt are you sure ??. I like big Ben's posts, I don't always agree with him but he doesn't pull any punches. He's not only right about the players he mentioned but about those that are saying the league is lost before a ball gets kicked. I don't actually like Dido but as the song goes, there will be no white flag upon my door, I'm a ger and, always will be. A wee bit of artistic licence with the last bit.

??? Before it was posted, flb, Ed kindly edited it (censored) as it was maybe too blunt?!
Look, I know I can be critical, but some of the reactions to last night has been borderline hysterical!

You’ve said what’s been needed said, love to read the uncensored version. ?.

R. I. P. Trevor Francis!

I'll second that, great player in his heyday, still fairly rapid even at 33 when he signed for us.

2.) 24 Jul 2023 14:45:25
RiP Trevor Francis. Met him a couple of times while he was with us. Proper gentleman and great player. Sad day ?.

The boy wanted to stay down South, so no big deal! It's a better league, and regardless if they get relegated, the boy has the chance to put himself in the shop window for a move to a bigger team. Good luck to him!

A boy in at work told me today that Roofe picked up an injury during the open training session. Is that true?

My opinion on Sakala is that MB, and the board, would prefer he moved on to bring in these funds, only if the figure of 4-5m is true?! If this is the case, I'd be telling him straight, he wouldn't be in the first 11 and appearances were going to be very limited.
Or we could go down the Goebbels route and take away all his privileges, make him train away from the squad, take his mobile off him, and send him to bed each night without any supper! Too much?!

Maybe the boy didn't want to play up here? If it's a choice between the EPL, and our league, then most will pick down there.

Again, sorry, Stevie, but I can't get involved in crap like this, it is, in my opinion, tragic! Shame on all of you who participated! ?

I started my post with 'sorry', I was being nice! What else do you want from me? ?.

Big Ben72

{Ed001's Note - then scroll past instead of being a dick for heaven's sake. All you have done is made things snarky when you could have just ignored and left them to talk about it. That is the shame and the tragic thing, is people like you who think you have the right to tell others what to think or talk about.}

Sorry, Stevie, but your post is tragic and it's giving me the bile! A mixed anything with them involved is just wrong!

Give them nothing! The thought of Rangers fans losing out to accommodate that shower gives me the boak! I want them nowhere near Ibrox!
