We’re well aware a lot of fans will read this and argue it looks like it was written by Celtic fans, and with what we’re about to say, in truth if anyone else wrote it we might say the same.
But hell with it, we’ll come out with it regardless, and we’ll take whatever faeces gets hurled at us in outrage.
And that is that Rangers seem to have completely dropped the ball over this summer, with shows of absolute incompetence undermining the glory of last season.
It’s not just on the pitch where we’ve not been up to scratch, it’s been everywhere.
From Ryan Kent’s farcical incorrect shirt which may lead to a technical fine from UEFA, to the ticketing scandal which led to thousands of fans being locked out of Ibrox and an official club apology, to the ridiculous gold shirt which few seem to actually like (why couldn’t it have been blue and white hoops like 150 years ago?) to the horrendous violet/pink monstrosity we have for our third shirt to the stupid fight we have with the SPL sponsors for reasons frankly no one truly knows.
And then there’s the media charge which has drawn major ire and massively reduced the diversity of the coverage fans receive now, with a major loss in snaps from Ibrox plus access for smaller media groups.
There’s also the match day experience, with those ticketing issues plus not to mention reports of catering ‘malfunctions’ as well.
Now the latest one is the ban for Celtic fans at Ibrox, after well over a season of no fans in grounds at all, we’ve gone from reducing the allocation from 850 to zero, which simply means when we go to Parkhead we have no support at all. Cut off your nose to spite your face.
We don’t quite know why things have been this incompetent, we’ve not even mention the nonsense with Club1872 either, and it’s just like everything the club could have done to completely insult 55 it has.
It’s not wrecked 55, we will always have that glory, but following up maybe the best domestic season in Rangers’ history with the complete mess this one has been so far really wasn’t what we were hoping for.
And like we say, it’s not even so much on the pitch that we’re disquieted with.
We have Stevie G admitting he ‘broke’ Fashion Sakala, while also hinting the medical team somehow missed a major heart issue with poor Nnambi Oboforh as well.
It’s been far from ideal and it’s the kind of errors you might expect in the Championship, maybe lower SPL – not from Rangers.
We hope these ‘issues’ straighten themselves out soon, and we hear about less balls being dropped because we can do without the off-pitch nonsense detracting from the on-pitch progress.
And if you think these comments make us ‘Celtic fans’ feel free to have those thoughts.
We don’t really care.
