There is a worrying trend at Ibrox these days, and it isn’t what you think. While the quality of the team and calibre of manager isn’t at the level we expect from our Ibrox finest, something else deeply concerning has started to emerge within the bowels of the club and it needs rooted out.
From an Auchenhowie youth player (who will remain unnamed) actively supporting Celtic yesterday and making it public, to the fact the last two managers have been Celtic minded, we at Ibrox Noise are deeply concerned that far too much influence is being had on the club by those who are more inclined towards the Celtic way than the Rangers one.
We said yesterday how the performance proved Rangers men weren’t necessarily critical in the stages of growth of this club – that starting with four born Bears in the team saw the worst Old Firm display maybe of our lifetimes by an SPL Rangers – and this shows how we need the best men for the job rather than it mattering that they are Bluenoses.
But having a small and growing influence at the club which is more green and white than blue is simply wrong.
The stink deep in the corridors of Govan is becoming a real problem, and the board is doing a pathetic job of finding men who are worthy of the positions that matter at Ibrox.
Caixinha as we know vaunted his ‘Celtic Brothers’ a few years ago, while Murty was ‘proud’ to get Celtic for his testimonial and his whole father’s side of the family are Celtic.
And frankly we’re sick of all this.
This is not the days of exceptions like Mo Johnston and Neil McCann who were raised as Celtic fans but who were mighty for us as players, or Kenny McDowall who was a Celtic youth coach but stellar as Walter’s assistant.
No, we don’t mind individually great players etc – we don’t care who they support if they’re great for us.
But these days much of the fare coming in or being appointed is considerably below average, and if we’re going to have rubbish, we might as well have Bluenose rubbish than filling our rafters with mediocre men who have more in common with the East End than Govan.
Enough is enough. And the board really needs to vet better.
NB: We feel compelled to update this in light of some of the absurd replies we’re getting. Apparently being unhappy at sub-standard Celtic-minded men at our club is ‘gutter’ behaviour.
We are deeply worried about our modern fanbase if sites objecting to sub-par Celtic minded men who bring the overall quality of the club down at our club are ‘gutter’.
To those who understood our point, well done, you appear to be in the minority.
