Routine win? Seriously?
I would bet good money you don't win 6-1 again all season.
£5 says we do. Routine win as in we were expected to win comfortably and did.
Okay, but the scoreline has to be 6-1.
Haha didn't take long did it? £5 please Toony, my paypal is email@example.com

A front 3 of Sturridge, Sterling and Suarez should be good in theory.
Sturridge is a very talented player but hes frustrating as fuck. Can't do any worse that Downing or Borini...
Suarez up front with two black players. That will end well.

Quite a bad cough you've got there Toon. Might force you into an early retirement.

Former owner Sir David Murray was a hugely wealthy businessman who bought the club in 1988 for £6 million..He invested in an already successful club and helped us win 9 in a row..Took us to what was more or less a Champions League semi final..Brought us some real greats..Laudrup..Gazza at his best..the De Boer twins..Arthur Numan..Gio Van Bronkhurst and many many more. All this came at a cost and we found ourself in £80 million debt...Murray tried a share issue but the support were angered the scale of the debt had been hidden and it flopped..He personally had to put in £50 million of his own money to bail the club out.
Rangers have been working over the past few years to bring the debt down further and had it down at the manageable level of just under £20 million which was easily serviced by a club of Rangers size..Then the real bombshell came. Dick Advocatt was bringing in real quality players from abroad and they didn't come cheap. Rangers were paying certain players their wages plus a tax avoidance scheme known as Employment Bonus Scheme(EBTs)..Now this was legal at the time if done properly but Rangers were warned the way in which they had set up the scheme was sailing close to the wind. This tax bombshell could finish the club i love and the final bill could be anything up to £100 million. This 1 scheme was the catalyst of all our problems and as much as i enjoyed the 'glory days' of the 90s it was not worth this price..our previous owner chased an impossible dream of European Glory and competing with the top clubs in Europe from the top leagues. Unrealistic while you are playing in a league like the SPL no matter how big the club is or how many supporters we get through the gates.
Quite rightly the bank began to panic and put a representative on our board and Murray was told in no uncertain terms that he either invested more of his millions into the club or he had to sell...Sir David Murrays fortune was made in the steel industry and property so the global recession really hit him hard. His companies combined debt to the bank was reported recently at around the £700 million mark. Obviously the dream was now over and this nightmare began in full swing.
Murray had always promised he would only sell to someone who had the best interests of the club at heart...He would only sell to someone who could take the club forward. Enter Mr Craig Whyte. It is no exagerration to say selling the club to this man is the single worst decision in the 140 years of Rangers Football Club. He has taken a club teetering on the precipice into the abyss!! This is where it gets really murky and i doubt we wll ever get to the bottom of it but i will try and give you a shortened version.
Whyte borrowed £18 million from ticketus to pay of the bank debt in full...Ticketus now get the money from the first 25,000 season tickets we sell over the next 3 or 4 years. He was supposed to be paying the bank debt with his own money!!
He has refused to pay any outside contractors since he took control and that debt has grown dramatically over the last 12 months.
He took PAYE and NI from the players and staff but never passed it on to HMRC.
He was sold the club for £1...He now owns Ibrox Stadium,The Albion Car Park and Murray Park training facility. If the club is liquidated Craig Whyte becomes the main creditor and claims he is owed £18 million which he will get in full after the sale of the ground etc. Nice wee earner Mr Whyte!!
There is so much more such as the SFA putting in place a transfer embargo for 12 months due to Whytes financial cheating. We will in all likelyhood lose the majority of our players in the close season but are unable to replace them for a year!! A harsh punishment imo as the cheating was down to 1 man and we have suffered like few other clubs have ever suffered due to this.
We now have Charles Green and a consortium of faceless foreign investors with no ties to the club or country trying to buy the club. Sorry but i am not exactly enthused by all his bluster and talk of Millions available for McCoist to sign players...Bollocks to that. This is the reason we are all suffering today!!!
As a Rangers supporter of 43 years who has follow followed my entire life all i ask for is a club to support..I could not care less if we won another trophy in my lifetime...I just want my son and daughters to have a team to support and hopefully my grandchildren.. Although my 5 year old daughter claims to be a St Mirren fan..i'll soon knock that out her
I don't care what team you support...I don't care what you think of Scottish football or Rangers in particular and i don't care what you think of me i would never wish this on any true supporter or any football club...Well maybe 1
