Ibrox Noise published a piece earlier today explaining Allan McGregor’s time at Rangers is up, and it’s surely the dawn of Robby McCrorie.
The same fans abusing McGregor ‘for being a statue’ on Wednesday today gave the site and page abuse for such an assertion, in the usual array of Rangers fans recently being very fickle and hypocritical, with opinions changing like the wind.
Heck, it’s football, we’re as guilty too – opinions and football are emotional, and that’s flexible – but we did have to laugh at the accusation from some quarters that our content is incessantly negative at the moment.
Because, of course, Rangers are playing great, manager is doing well, and all is worth praise, right?
Of course, we actually have been positive – we’ve supported many of the players and praised them where they’ve earned it. All season we’ve championed Goalak, and we’ve been the ones defending James Sands in face of a torrent of abuse at him. We’ve also been regaling you with our plaudits for Ridvan. We’ve also been bigging up Lundstram, after a new cult of criticism took aim at him.
But as soon as we produce a common sense article telling you a 40+ year old keeper is done, the usual suspects lose the plot and tell us we’re a disgrace.
Negative? Ibrox Noise has been infinitely more positive about this season than most of the fans have!
Every match we have to deal with a torrent of negative comments about the team, slagging literally every single player off, the manager, the board. Every match the fans boo at the final whistle. Often through the game.
And some of you have the actual gall, after smearing everything at Ibrox, to tell us WE’RE the negative ones?
We have never called for Gio’s head once – we’ve suggested his time is probably up because feeling from you supporters is so dead set against him now, with many of you guys and gals calling for his head outright. We never have.
But no, we’re the angry pessimists with nothing but negative content.
Ibrox Noise will always be honest – positive, negative, neutral, you name it. We’re not going to stop because some fans change their opinions every day and take it out on us.
So yes, McGregor is finished, and no, we didn’t advocate his return at all – we wanted McCrorie, Siegrist or Ozer instead. We suggested McGregor as a sticking plaster, a backup plan for the number one ahead of him.
But hey, easier to be angry and abuse Rangers fan sites than face the truth, isn’t it?
