Rangers- all inclusive....

Recommended Posts

Smith's right boot

Just heard on the radio, Rangers have employed an all inclusivity / community type guy.

 

He Said on the Radio that Rangers are an all inclusive club and embrace all communities.... they need to celebrate being from Glasgow.....

 

Is it a wind up?

 

It's like the Klu Klux Klan  saying they embrace applicants from all ethnic back grounds?

 

Anyone else hear it, he sounded like he had just stumbled out the Lodge as well, never caught his name. On Forth news earlier.

 

Is this in preparation for the dire report on bigotry  that in incoming?

Glasgow can be pretty diverse. No harm in trying to tap into the market and get some new fans. Clubs should be always trying to better their image. 

 

Those who have been around long enough, ie Scottish football fans know what that support are really like mind you. 

 

Celtic have played the good guys card for too long in that City, and with their current / upcoming issues it's a good time for Rangers to try and turn the tide.

If a city has to constantly actually tell you how friendly it is it can’t be that ****ing friendly.

 

I get the same feeling about this PR move

Rangers missed/cancelled/rearranged a pre season bounce game last season cause the kit mans orange lodge was hosting other lodges for the weekend. True. Story.

Corporate Heads of Bigot Club pay lip service to authorities whilst hoping not to alienate their customer base.

 

Nothing more to see except to laugh at the barefaced cheek of the people selling Orange football strips to bigots pretend their good members of society.

They are very late to this party. Celtic have been absolutely destroying them in the PR war for a few decades now. Finally realised ‘no-one likes is, we don’t care’, is not a good business model.

Let’s be honest here, it works for Celtic and they have amongst the scummiest dregs on the planet scuttling after them in their thousands. They pull this masquerade off whilst singing songs glorifying children being torn apart by nail-bombs ffs. No reason why Rangers can’t convince the world that they are not vermin too. It’ll take a while, but if they keep at it, they’ll get there.

Probably a diversity officer - someone, who's role it is is to help the players improve their diving.

Quite logical really.

When people complain about their knuckle dragging religiously bigoted support they will correctly be able to say that as an inclusive club they are prepared to accept all sorts of people.

When they actually do something about their own fans singing sectarian songs week in week out I'll believe they are serious. Same with the other arse cheek. They make money from their bigotry so can't see it changing

Hearts are tackling the issue head on. 

The Scottish government also tried. 

Both got/get abuse for it. 

 

The SFA, rangers and celtic have done nothing as you say.

I think it will work, but over a long period of time, IF they keep at it. Eventually they will end up in a situation where the sectarian sorts are in the vocal minority, like they are at our own club.

I despise the sizeable arsehole elements to Rangers and Celtic's supports but there are also plenty who just support them because they are from Glasgow and that is their local team. Both of them used the sectarian thing to grow in size. We should probably welcome any steps to diminish it, because over a long enough time-line, that is the only way other clubs will have the potential to close the gap in terms of income and support-base.

Thing is no matter how hard that club tries to forward the clock from 1690 to 2019 they’ll always have massive a problem with fans who just don’t want to change. Chipping away at it is commendable though.

The bigger issue is these aren’t 90 minute bigots it’s part of the fabric of Glasgow and the surrounding areas. While many Hearts fans of a certain age grew up with Hearts being part of this problem most (I’d hope) have moved on and what we have is a small minority who try and carry that on, I’ll bet though in most cases it doesn’t effect their day to day life and they don’t really understand or believe in that pish and most will grow out of it. That just isn’t the case for the very large majority of old firm fans particularly those from or associated with the west. Sadly we are at least 2 generations away from this ending IMO.
