Latest Gersnet News
After what seems like an eternity since our last game, Rangers are finally back in action against Falkirk tomorrow at Ibrox. With both teams currently unbeaten including a 100% record for Mark Warburton's men, something has to give in what is sure to be an open, exciting match.
This will be the third in a series of somewhat accidental musings on the defensive issues at Rangers. When we attack to the best of our ability, we are all delighted. But we have been quick to criticise when we do not defend properly. We are used to a good defence. Our history is littered with great sides, built upon a solid, compact defence. The last major success was the run to the UEFA Cup Final in 2008, built, all will agree, on a solid defence. The quality of our defensive play has decreased since then, along with our attacking play -- at least until the dawn of the current season. We have been quick to take to the new attacking concepts displayed by the side, with its wing-play, intricate passing, possession and ultra-attacking full-backs. However, we have been slower to react to and accept the changing demands of our defence.
Today's main site article discusses the unacceptable facilities offered to disabled fans at Ibrox. Although, the club are attempting to facilitate debate on the issue via their own stakeholder group, Gersnet is interested to find out if our supporters would be willing to contribute to the inevitable financial cost going forward.
In a week where GCC and Celtic came under heavy fire over State Aid claims and the remarkable East End Regeneration and Commonwealth Games programmes which have been centred around Celtic Park and it's close proximity within the Parkhead area, incredible plans to build a new airport called 'Glasgow City Airport' have now been leaked and apparently there will be massive benefits for Rangers.
