An Ibrox Noise Statement
GLASGOW, SCOTLAND - NOVEMBER 22: A general view outside the stadium prior to the Ladbrokes Scottish Premiership match between Rangers and Aberdeen at Ibrox Stadium on November 22, 2020 in Glasgow, Scotland.

The most telling aspect of the response to our earlier article about Malik Tillman, which we stand by every word of, was not the fairly even split between those who disagreed and those who agreed, it was the tone of the disagreements, many of whom decided we are a fraud Rangers website and a disgrace for such an article.

Why was this telling?

It was telling because those fans were not only dismissing the article, they were dismissing every single Rangers-supporting peer who agreed with the article as ‘frauds’ as well.

Ibrox Noise has an audience into the millions of Rangers fans, and if an article divides them 50/50, then those debunking the article’s validity and Ibrox Noise in general for it are equally dismissing the views of hundreds of thousands of fans who agreed with it.

Which tells a lot more about those who disagree than about the article itself.

Maybe the tone of it was slightly strong, perhaps, we can hold our hands up if sometimes we go over the top with passion and rhetoric and get slightly emotional – we’re not androids on Ibrox Noise.

But the sentiment is something we stand by – we’re dubious about the ‘goal’ at best, and we’re very disappointed in his digs at Giovanni, as well as at his hopeful rhetoric towards his parent club Bayern.

We’re not going to be swayed from our opinion just because some snowflakes want to attack us for it.

We will always respect criticism, lord knows we allow such comments and replies on our platforms, but we will not tolerate insults or aggressive rhetoric just because you disagree with an opinion.

We have always allowed free speech on our platforms, but we’ve stopped short of supporting critics’ right to smear and insult us.

The majority absolutely do show respect, for us and each other, and discussion is fruitful and varied. But sometimes the moonhowlers come out and let rip on us showing us just why we won’t let them on.

And we’ll never tolerate that. So for the majority of you who can hold a debate without resorting to attacking the man, you’re welcome on Ibrox Noise.

  1. I wasn’t really mad at ur criticism although I did find it a bit harsh but I respect your opinion none the less. I still stand by my claim that u are reading too deep into this. I don’t think it was him thinking he’s too good for us it’s just him being neutral which is the right thing to do as he doesn’t really know what his future is beyond this season.

    • If we’re being honest, he probably will end up being to good for us. Who wants to spend their career with n the Scots league on 20k a week when you could be playing in a bigger league for multiples of that.

  2. Think the lad is hopefully going to go from strength to strength best young player seen many years , will be just brush thistle players antics under carpet stamp on ankle throwing tillman to ground mob handed ,hopefully tillman signs for next four years

  3. just because people disagree with you doesnt make them a snowflake LOL. if we all agreed on everything, every single subject and matter, it would be a very boring world.
