Ten years of Ibrox Noise

Ten years of Ibrox Noise

In two days from now, Ibrox Noise celebrates our official 10-year anniversary, and to kick off the build up, we wanted to make a personal comment about the last 10 years, and what the Journey for Rangers and the Journey for Ibrox Noise has meant.

We began life with yours truly penning a piece for a Rangers forum on the difficulties Ally McCoist was having replacing injured Steven Naismith.

They liked it so much they wanted it on the website front page.

That went down well so having been inspired by a site myself and two others once tried to start (a failed endeavour) I decided to begin Ibrox Noise initially on my own, on the 11th of November 2011.

Over the years it’s gone through as little change as we could have tried – I didn’t want to overhaul it because the basic purpose was simply talking about Rangers, and listening to what the readers said.

And in those early days, if just one person read a piece, that was good enough.

Nowadays, we’re deeply grateful for the audience which numbers into the many hundreds of thousands – sure, you guys do get a bit upset now and then, but we get an overall sense of appreciation for the content. For its candour, for its honesty, and for its transparency.

But of course there’s been a catch – we began life just as Rangers’ troubles were literally starting, November 2011, so we’ve been there since all of that, and we’ve followed the Journey in a way perhaps other Rangers sites haven’t. And it’s been a strange period in Rangers’ history to start a site, mirroring almost exactly the events at Ibrox with our own Noise!

But we’ve been there for the very good – 55, those amazing runs in Europe, getting back to the top flight and even the lower league promotions themselves, even if they don’t feel too great on reflection.

Why we began around Remembrance Sunday I’m not completely sure, a curious twist of fate perhaps?

But I would like to thank every single one of you who has helped, inspired, contributed, written, sourced, all of it over the years.

I’m not going to do a pretentious Oscar speech by naming everyone. I would literally be rattling off thousands of names and I’d be terrified I’d miss someone.

But you are all appreciated, and in most cases, you know exactly who you are.

And of course, the valued readers. Some of you have been here from the start, some a bit later, but the regulars and not so regulars are all appreciated too, for all your reading and agreeing and disagreeing – all about opinions!

So, here’s to another 10 years, and yet more Noise Ups!

  1. I will admit, l was a late starter due to all the other websites on Rangers, mostly talking utter piss day in day out for clicks, then you whittle it down to 5 or so then onto 2 sites l keep up to date with, sure I’ve disagreed with you many a time on players and ratings but you are right on the ball and had many exclusives to the stage you should be working within Ibrox as those within Rangers at times leave the fans absolutely baffled and angry at times

    Keep up the good work and keep telling exactly how it is, that’s what the fans want, no bullshitting or pussyfooting around

  2. Congratulations IN it’s been a pleasure to both participate and contribute. This site has allowed real Rangers people of all ages and levels to speak openly with mutual respect and love for the Famous. Perhaps you chose Remembrance Sunday to begin as the recent disrespectful behaviour by that shower was once again allowed to happen without any repercussions or questions. And we are supposed to be the Bigots…I think not .Onwards to the next 10 years after we win more trophies and gain our rightful place at the top of Scottish Football on a solid financial and moral base.

    • Think you might be one of our longest readers Bill, and maybe you have a point re: Remembrance. Who knows. Thank you for the kind reply.

  3. Keep up the good work IN. To everyone that follows remember that whatever is said we are all Rangers fans and we all want the same thing. Follow with pride and respect for the players, the club, each other and for our opponents. Just like Walter Smith did.

  4. Well done Ibrox noise, what I like is that we get in with supporting our team, we gave out other Glasgow teamsin their places with talking on the pitch and our fans worldwide as usual are first class


  5. Well done Ibrox noise, meant to say we do our talking on the pitch, let other Glasgow clubs get on with it and we represent our city, country and people every time we take to the pitch!
