Rangers fans are today disgusted (again) with the board, this time over the complete club radio silence on the retirement of former captain Lee Wallace and a lack of good wishes to him.
The former Rangers hero is still incredibly highly regarded by the vast majority of fans following what he gave us, but of course he was cast out and dumped after the Hampden incident.
It is understandable that, right or wrong, there is bad blood towards him from the Rangers board, but any decent people should have had the goodwill to wish the man well in his retirement, being the ‘bigger man’ as it were.
But the utter absence of any word of support for him has not been received well by supporters who are currently extremely unhappy with this board and pretty much everything it does, understandably.
Would it have killed the board to relay their best wishes to Wallace, to instruct the social media team to put out a little token of appreciation?
Indeed, the lack of one shows the ridiculous disconnect, which is clearly growing, between fans and the board – just because the board might not wish Wallace the best, the fans do, and putting their own wishes before the fans’ is clear contempt for what supporters want.
This is not the board’s club, it’s fans’, and while shareholders technically own it (including Ibrox Noise and many other supporters groups) it’s the fans’ wishes that matter.
Without fans Rangers are nothing – 2012 showed us that.
So give Wallace his damn send off Rangers.
