We have to say, we’re shocked right now by the level of infighting going on at Ibrox between the board and scorned ex-lovers.
That is, ex Rangers men like Mark Hateley, Barry Ferguson, Dave King etc etc who are currently going to the press and criticising the men in the suits.
Not only that, but Hateley accused the playing staff and management of disconnect from supporters.
Whether you agree with the points being raised by these respected ex-players and board members the feeling is all isn’t well right now behind the scenes, and the 150th trip fiasco on top of the Old Firm shambles are two prize examples of it.
The problem is the board have made rods for their own backs – the Sutton and Lennon bans divided fans, and were one of many in a long line of weird calls the board has made which split the base.
We don’t need controversy, we don’t need contentious decisions, we need a board carrying out good things which fans agree on.
One only had to look at the 150th shirt reaction – half of the fans were deeply upset they’d bought the shirt and the club hadn’t worn it as promised, the other half were attacking those fans and slaughtering them, hinting at them to ‘grow up’.
We get it, running a football club shouldn’t be a popularity contest, and if things are going well on the pitch the decisions the men behind the scenes make would be less under focus.
But we trust Barry and Hateley especially, they have only the club’s best interests at heart and if they’re concerned with what’s happening, it’s worth listening to.
Food for thought.
