  3. It doesn’t seem that long ago since James Tavernier finally lifted the Scottish Premiership trophy on behalf of Rangers – for the first time in ten years and for a world record 55th time. I’m not ashamed to admit I shed a tear that day and the moment will live with me forever.

  4. The 67th season of the most prestigious of European club competitions, the 30th since the advent of the UEFA Champions League, takes place from 22 June 2021 to 28 May 2022. The 32 teams in the 2021-2022 group stage include 26 automatic qualifiers joined by six play-off winners. What chances of winning for the Rangers?

  6. Rangers, league winners of the Scottish Premiership for the first time in ten years after a tumultuous ride through liquidation, re-establishment, and promotion from the fourth tier of Scottish football, are back in the UEFA Champions League for the 2021/2022 season. Steven Gerrard’s men thoroughly deserve to be where they are. Their domestic exploits over the last couple of seasons have shown they are difficult to beat and productive going forward. However, unlike Celtic in recent years, they have displayed an effectiveness in their continental efforts too: achieving back-to-back quarter-final appearances in the Europa League, losing to Bayer Leverkusen in 2019/2020 and then to Slavia Prague. The Gers are a hardworking, underdog team. They can win ugly and win well. Everything the club have done to build a squad for Gerrard to coach and maximise the performances of has led to this chance to make it to the UEFA Champions League proper. What are their chances?

  8. In recent weeks, we’ve seen the demonisation of Rangers supporters - barely caveated with ‘a small sections of’ - by prominent politicians. Anti-Catholic and Anti-Irish bigotry. It seems like a fool’s errand to try and bring logic to a situation like this, because we live in an era of culture wars across the Western world where rationality is no longer the common ground. It is entirely about power. I won’t waste your time giving you a history of the academic roots of this - it stems from claims that don’t have zero merit, but do not stand up to scrutiny. The point for us is that Scotland is not immensely diverse. The intersectional activism that we see here happens at the juncture of Catholicism and Palestine. The analogies drawn between anti-Catholicism and racism by our prominent leaders are prima facie ridiculous. You don’t die in the culture you were born. Sometimes your culture is something you have to overcome. Religion is a choice, not an arbitrary characteristic like skin pigment. Every choice a person makes is one for which they can be realistically held responsible, and it’s acceptable in any free democratic society to disagree with the choices people make. And let’s be honest here - as people more eloquent than me argued, like Stephen Fry and Christopher Hitchens in the IQ Squared debate - that Catholicism is not a nice religion.

  9. Despite being one of the strangest years on record, the 2020-21 football season has drawn to a close across the UK, crowning brand new champions and relegating some shock names to the back of the pile.

  10. New Scottish football leagues scratch off map available - the ideal gift for friends and family!

  11. The Glasgow Rangers had been champions for several weeks, but their victory over Aberdeen last Saturday (4-0) allowed them to finish the Scottish Championship unbeaten with a record of 32 wins and 6 draws. Back on the consecration of the Glasgow Rangers.

  13. I made a mistake last Sunday. In a pique of frustration over the inevitability of much of Saturday night’s events and annoyance over some of the coverage it garnered, I sent a Tweet. As Tweets go it was quite long, and was an attempt to remind people that Rangers supporter’s who fight police officers, or themselves, on a Saturday night in town are no more representative of me, or the vast majority of our support, than the Rangers supporter’s who went bird watching, long distancing running or line dancing are. I wish I hadn’t.

  14. Saturday saw the best of a football support and when it is good, it’s very, very good.

  21. The Kudela incident and the fall-out served to highlight the differences or various states of progress or understanding within different societies. It’s not unreasonable to say that some within Slavia Prague are at a different place than we currently are in Scotland. We shouldn’t be too contemptuous or condescending though, we’ve seen similar not too long ago and there’s always work to do. Good habits have to be learned, whilst bad habits have to be unlearned.

  22. The Rangers is one of the oldest teams not only in Scotland but also in Europe. The club has seen many great players put on the jersey and achieve wonders. However, there are legends that deserve to be mentioned in almost every story. The list of the great players is very long, but there are players who have achieved much and deserve a spot on the list. The ranking of players puts into perspective their impact on the institution, time with Rangers and their personal statistics. So which Ranger would make it to our list? Could it be Brian Laudrup or John Greig? Maybe it's Andy Goram, Jim Baxter or Ally McCoist. Let's look at the top 5 greatest Rangers.

  28. It has been an unforgettable season for Rangers this term, as they have won their first SPFL title for ten years. The fashion in which they have done it would bring the most pleasure to fans, as they have pulled away from Celtic in a commanding way. Steven Gerrard is likely to stay at Ibrox for at least another season, but could that be a sign that Gers are setting the stones in place for a period of unprecedented dominance in Scotland?

  29. Go on, admit it! If someone had said to you this time last year after Celtic were handed the 2019/20 league title in March, we'd be sitting in mid April 2021 having won our 55th title an impressive five weeks before, you'd think they were a few sandwiches short of a picnic.

  30. Ever since Steven Gerrard joined us in May 2018, the team have been invigorated with fresh hope. This season we’ve looked nothing short of magnificent and have stamped our authority on the league, putting the championship safely beyond anyone’s reach. A draw between Celtic and Dundee United recently sorted that out for us, gifting us our 55th topflight Scottish Premiership title. Good times lie ahead.
