Whenever we hear about Barry Ferguson or Kris Boyd’s opinions in the press, 99% it’s about Rangers issues. Sometimes we agree with them, sometimes we don’t, but like fellow Rangers man Ally McCoist, these guys talk about Rangers pretty much 24/7.
Meanwhile, once again, Rangers-hating Hibernian ‘legend’ Tam McManus, employed by a ‘Rangers site’ who shall not be named, frequently commentates on us in the press, a bit like McAvenie, Dalglish, and of course the Mutton himself.
Now, we do not look at Celtic press here on Ibrox Noise, so for all we know Wee Barry and Boydy are babbling about Celtic issues till kingdom come. But we’re going to assume they don’t, because all our news feeds ever have is Rangers stuff.
But for a Rangers site to employ a known Rangers hater to get his opinion on Rangers is… ludicrous, and it only cements our point further when he speaks to the Daily Record encouraging a Rangers staff member to leave our club and join his.
Yes, there’s a real hilarity in the press these days, the amount of airtime Rangers get from those who hate us, while our own talk about us, about our issues, and the stuff that actually matters to us.
We know (most) of our readers are smart enough to cut through the chafe, to get to the wheat, and we know hundreds of thousands of you out there enjoy Ibrox Noise and other genuine Rangers-run fan sites and media.
But the proliferation in there in recent years of click bait rubbish which is purely using our Rangers name to drive hits and traffic is sad, and a damning indictment of the quality of journalism we see today from outlets masquerading under our name.
Ibrox Noise claim no superiority over other genuine Rangers websites and fan communities, they all have their strengths and loyal followers, but we do draw the line at those run by media writers just intent on driving traffic under the guise of being Rangers.
Hibs men making a living off Rangers and probably becoming quite wealthy from it? No thanks, you’re ok!
