"Strip the titles" - The End

 Article by: Ibrox Noise

Over the past 48 hours two very important events occurred in the history of Rangers FC. First, Stewart Robertson was democratically elected to the board of the SPFL, for Rangers’ first representation on it since league restructuring in 2013. And secondly the board onto which he was placed has now finally confirmed the nonsense of title stripping and EBT investigation are not on the agenda.

In short, at long last, the mentalist idea of Rangers being stripped of titles because of rank misunderstandings of how EBT schemes operate has been officially put to bed.

Rangers' confirm latest summer signing - is it the best yet?

 Article by: Richard, for Ibrox Noise

Rangers have signed Manchester City academy director Mark Allen as our new Director of Football and he could turn out to be one of the most significant signings in our club’s history. He could of course turn out like Frank McParland and be a failure.

The 54-year-old has spent seven years overseeing the Premier League side's youth set-up, and has a full Uefa coaching A licence. Mark has overseen the incredible progress and improvement at the City Football Academy, which has seen the club acquire elite talent both domestically and from abroad, and win trophies at almost every age group in recent years.

Rangers legend: "Rangers were never serious about me"


Alex McLeish has confirmed tonight that talks with the Rangers board never went beyond the ‘casual’ stage.

Speaking about his return to Ibrox as manager following the departure of Mark Warburton, Big Eck has suggested that the board were never serious about his appointment and that while he made himself available for further talks, Stewart Robertson et al were not interested in following up on him.

Two years since the Return of the King - where are Rangers now?


Few could deny the sheer turmoil Rangers were under the office of Derek Llambias, David Somers and co. While this site initially gave that regime more than a fair deal of slack, it became clear well before 2015 that their influence at best would not take Rangers forward, and indeed was becoming a hindrance. Once Dave King gained his place on the board in March of 2015, fans were filled with optimism and hope, with the belief the Club was ours again and was in the right hands going forward.

The events of this season have not done a lot to reassure supporters that their initial judgements were correct, and actions at managerial and board level have done a great deal to concern fans who do not feel quite as safe as we perhaps did two years ago to this very day as King, Murray and Gilligan seized control of the Marble Staircase.

Poll: Is a Director of Football the right path for Rangers?


With Managing Director Stewart Robertson confirming last week that Rangers were seeking the services of a Director of Football, it marks the return of an idea chairman Dave King previously wanted to implement but then dropped once he and his colleagues were elected onto the board.

King suggested the idea of a patriarch manager in the form of a Walter Smith or Dick Advocaat no longer worked, and his model was for a coach overseen by a Director of Football, but not long after the vote in 2015 King confirmed the DoF and coach idea was off the table for now, with a traditional manager being sought.

Rangers' board didn't trust Mark Warburton - here's why...


Rangers’ Managing Director Stewart Robertson said this week:

“Whoever comes in (as new manager) is going to get the backing, the financial resources. If we can get the right guy, give him the right conditions, the right working conditions and back him with the resources which will be there, there will be resources to back the manager coming in in terms of strengthening the squad. Hopefully next season there will be European football and we will need to strengthen the squad for that.”

To sum this statement up; Rangers do have money, if not a fortune, but the board were unwilling to give any more to Mark Warburton after the utter disaster that was last summer’s transfer window.

Evil bigoted Rangers to host Asian football finals


“Aw, those bigoted, racist h*ns aye, pyoor evil so they are.”

So say the majority of Scottish football fans who like to attach labels to the Rangers support and ignore problems in other football supports.

Of course Rangers fans have had their issues, but every fanbase has, and it has to be said Rangers have done more in the past decade to tackle our own house than any other Club in Scotland. Far more.
