Rangers’ European travel arrangements have been thrown further into utter farce with the second ‘no trip’ in a row thanks to ‘travel partner’ Thomas Cook Sports.
Following the decision allegedly made on ‘cost grounds’ to not provide clubs with travel arrangements for the trip to Macedonia, Rangers’ official provider of travel packages for supporters on European trips have once again decided not to bother with trips, after consulting with the club.
To appoint a high-profile tour operator at the tail end of last month for the very purpose of providing supporters with manageable travel options endorsed by the club then fail to actually do so is truly amateur and more than a touch embarrassing.
We are unclear who is calling the shots on this, but Rangers are publicly endorsing this brand as part of the terms of the agreement, while said brand appears unable to fulfil its obligations.
The first time this happened an official announcement was made, the second time it was left to the club’s supporter liaison officer to confirm it on his own personal Twitter account.
This isn’t good enough on any level.
