Rangers supporters are the true “custodians” of the Rangers Football club!
This support has been largely responsible for the successful growth of the Scottish Football Leagues as we see them today.
It has been the incessant drive of the Rangers support which has encouraged others to gather round and compete, and the standard of the football provided by the great teams Rangers support financed through their dedication to the sport, which has, unfortunately, drawn the likes of the “Greed Brothers” to our doors.
Opportunists can always smell a buck, and that is what occupies our boardroom today.
So confident are they that they cannot be touched , that Mr. Ashley has, with incredible ignorance, failed to respond to the SFA’s requirement to meet and discuss his breach of the agreement over ownership of, and influence in the club which we have created.
Are we as dedicated to the safety of our inheritance as our fathers were in years gone by?
Are we capable of behaving with the resolve and unity required to truly protect this club against voracious attacks such as have been launched against us?
The current issues over management, coaching, results on the park, promotion to the premiership, etc. – ARE NOT THE REAL ISSUES!
We may not SURVIVE, let alone get promotion and improvements on the park, if we fail to deal LIKE TRUE CUSTODIANS and rid our club of the vultures picking us clean.
As I have said previously on this and other sites, there has been abuse of our Rangers Family from those who pretend to be our partners in this relationship, namely, the self-serving board. To deal with this we must face up to the reality of their intentions and make them aware that we WILL NOT CONTINUE TO FEED THEIR abuse, but replace and evict them with an entity that TRULY CARES for the club, NAMELY —THE RANGERS SUPPORT, in FULL UNISON.
MONEY from us, the RANGERS SUPPORT, is what they need to continue abusing their position as our partner, money which they consume at an alarming rate, laughing at our trust, giving NOTHING by way of reassurance and mismanaging the blub in the most brazen ways, yet some of us still fail to see this, choosing instead to argue over the ins and outs of Ally’s role and his merits or failures.
MONEY from us must STOP GOING TO THEM to be further squandered!
MONEY from us needs to go to our Fan Ownership Schemes, the RST and RANGERS FIRST schemes.
When MONEY from us is directed away from their pockets, BIG-TIME, they will either GO or they will realise the need to “TALK TO THE WIFE”–that’s US!
This action cannot wait.
The A.G.M. is on Monday, December 22nd and that day should not go by without a massive presence at Ibrox of the RANGERS SUPPORTERS, the CLUB’S TRUE CUSTODIANS.
I WILL BE THERE.
