Why campaign to strip Rangers of their honours is ridiculous

The Court of Session’s decision that the use of Employee Benefit Trusts by Rangers between 2001 and 2010 should have been taxable, has led to a revival of the campaign to see the club stripped of honours won during the spell, often referred to as the EBT years. Fans of various clubs across the country are demanding justice from the game’s rulers, and have began furiously tweeting, calling radio phone-ins and posting barely...

Warburton’s approach against defensive teams is refreshing to see

Over the last few weeks, we’ve really started to get a true idea of what Mark Warburton and his team are all about. After running roughshod over the opposition in the opening weeks of the season, sides have caught on and are setting up to try frustrate the light blues. Seeing teams line up against Rangers with 11 men behind the ball isn’t anything new, but seeing how Warburton and co deal with it has been quite impressive....

Should Rangers players really be going to Dubai in the international break?

It’s been fairly quiet of late down Edmiston Drive. Well, relatively quiet at least. Away from ongoing legal battles surrounding Craig Whyte, Charles Green and friends (which I won’t be touching with a bargepole) there has been a real sense of normality amongst many Rangers fans I’ve spoken to. Yes, we’re still in the second tier of Scottish Football and, yes, we have the Petrofac Cup to play for instead of the...

Rangers’ centre-backs still need more protection

Following the disappointing League Cup defeat to St. Johnstone, normal service was resumed in the league at the weekend. A comprehensive 4-0 win at Cappielow saw Mark Warburton’s side extend their 100% league record at the expense of Morton. Martyn Waghorn scored an excellent hat-trick to take his tally to 14 goals in 13 games this season, while James Tavernier also continued his rich vein of form with his eighth goal so far...

Can Magic Mark’s Rangers team be stopped?

With 10 wins in his first 10 games as Rangers manager it looks like Mark Warburton might just be magic after all. The SPFL Ladbrokes Championship Manager of the Month for August has hit the ground running at Ibrox, alongside assistant Davie Weir, and is gearing up for his biggest challenge to date in the shape of St. Johnstone next week. The Perth side currently sit seventh in the Premiership and face a trip to Kilmarnock at the...

Rangers are going for nine in a row, again

No, it’s not the Nineties again. Mark Warburton could become the first Rangers manager to win his first nine games in a row. In 1920/21, Bill Struth won eight before a 2-1 Glasgow Cup semi-final defeat away to Celtic stopped the iconic Rangers boss’ winning run. Struth’s men then went on a run of 14 wins in 16 games before another defeat, this time losing 2-0 at home to Celtic. The Light Blues only lost one more game...
