Re: 55 Is Here

Unbelievable feeling. Last few years have felt like we’ve been creeping closer and closer with eventual knock backs leaving it feeling like an impossible task. To do what we’ve done this season is incredible. Every player from Div 3 to today deserves a mention for the work over the last 10 years whi...

Re: Rangers vs C****c - 2nd January 2021 (match thread)

After the first 15-20 it seemed inevitable that a C****c goal was coming. Thank god for McGregor who almost single handedly (excuse the pun) got us to HT at 0-0. Felt sorry for Roofe getting the hook but SG couldn’t afford to send the same team with the same tactics out for the 2nd half. As soon as ...

Another brilliant European performance to send us to the group stages.

Hopefully qualification allows us to go out and buy another player or two.

Re: Rangers v Galatasaray - Build Up & Match Thread

The fact it’s a one of game should make this very interesting. If we play to our best then we stand a good chance. Anything less than 100% and I fear they’ll punish us.
