Latest Gersnet News
Many Scottish football fans will by now be aware of an ongoing campaign by a small group of Celtic shareholders alleging that Rangers were incorrectly awarded a licence to play in European competition in the 2011/12 season. Informally this was known as 'Resolution 12' and these Celtic fans - encouraged and aided by various journalists in the mainstream British media - have been working for several years to apply pressure to their own club, the SFA and UEFA in relation to this licence.
With the manager now back from his holidays and pre-season training due to start later this month – including a training camp in the USA – much of the debate online is dedicated to the quality of the squad for our first year back in the Scottish Premiership.
First of all, thanks to everyone who uses and interacts with our main site, vBulletin forum and social media accounts. We're about to enter the 17th season of Gersnet so fingers crossed it's a good one. With 33,000 season tickets already sold, it's certainly going to be exciting and one of the biggest ever for the club!
Let’s be honest from the outset. In the same way Rangers deserved to beat Celtic earlier in the competition, Hibernian dominated us in Saturday’s Scottish Cup final. For the majority of the game they were a yard quicker, they worked incredibly hard and, unlike the previous five games this season, were the better team by a fair distance. Ergo, as I cautioned in my match preview on Friday, there was no shock here in an exciting final that mirrored the free-scoring games between the clubs already this season. In the same way we were emotional in April, generations of Hibs fans must be beyond delighted and, after almost 115 years of disappointment, no-one can deny them in their moment of glory.
