He is certainly from a Rangers supporting family- he's from Gorbals in Glasgow,  and his Dad (also Lawrence) is a blue nose. 

He's not from the Gorbals, he's a Baillieston lad and went to Bannerman High.

Yes, the old Gorbals is gone and with it went a sizeable chunk of Clyde FC’s fanbase.

Not that Gorbals needed improvement…

Worst case scenarios never really seem to materialise for them unfortunately . We live in hope though 


They did once before. The problem was that every last person working for the Scottish football authorities then worked frantically to make sure they had a soft landing. Nothing can threaten the cosy duopoly. So there was no stripping of trophies, no enforced new name or badge, no having to reapply to the league, no need for 3 years of accounts, et cetera. You’ll recall that they even tried to put the new club straight back into the SPL, and then one division down. They only had to restart in the 4th tier because the SFA and SPFL couldn’t control the other clubs and they voted it down. Even then, Sevco were allowed to vote as if they were still an SPL side!

 

When you recall what was done to save them, it seems too far-fetched to be true. But it happened. Including Doncaster actually threatening ‘civil unrest’ if Sevco had to start in League 2.

 

The part I still can’t get my head around is how they were able to buy the stadium  from the administrators for a fraction of its worth. That, right there, is what should have crippled them financially, and the SFA/SPFL weren’t in control of that. I think a lot of brown envelopes were involved.

But this is a hearts forum where hunnery is, and should be, unwelcome. You can think what you like of course, but bring it out here and you earn righteous open contempt, as much as if you had a soft spot for Celtic.

Yes, the stadium was apparently valued at £120M in 2003 according to a report in the Herald.*

Charles Green’s consortium bought Ibrox for, what, £3.5M? Was that really the best offer they could have held out for?

Or was it the fact that Green was offering to continue to run a “Rangers” out of Ibrox playing in the same kit, etc, and so preserve the sacred duopoly that swayed their decision? 
 

*RANGERS FC has beefed up its battered balance sheet by booking a huge (pounds) 39m hike in the value of its property - principally Ibrox stadium - it has emerged.

The move enabled Rangers to avoid wiping out shareholders' funds when it posted another huge financial loss earlier this month.

As recently as last year, Rangers' shareholders' funds - which reflect total investment in a company, covering issued share capital, retained profit, and reserves - stood at nearly (pounds) 50m.

The adjustment, which puts a healthier sheen on Rangers' 2003 figures, is buried in the notes to the club's accounts. They disclose that the directors valued the club's freehold properties on June 30, 2003, the end of the financial year, based on a report from the Edinburgh chartered surveyors DM Hall. The exercise increased the accounting value of the property from (pounds) 85m to (pounds) 120m, a surplus increased by a further (pounds) 4m by the elimination of depreciation.

The section of the accounts dealing with movements in shareholders' funds lays bare the impact of the change. Total funds stood at (pounds) 47.3m in 2002 but were slashed to just (pounds) 12m by the (pounds) 35.3m loss Rangers posted last year.

This is another one where our situations aren't that different - £2m bought the whole club, stadium included, just a decade ago. Robinson nearly sold the stadium for £20m!

Weirdly enough I recall Hearts fans and many others used to sing Go Home ya huns to the opposition support. Nothing sectarian in it then or when my parents and grandparents referred to the Germans as huns following the wars. However nowadays the woke culture means people are choosing to be offended about just about everything.

I don't understand why these people go through the charade of pretending to support Hearts, when it's clear that they only care about their big team.  Just **** off to Ibrox and be done with it. 

 

Then again, one of the Jimmie Rustlers above was also defending being racist, sexist, and homophobic, saying I needed to dry my eyes over it on another thread.

Actually, trolling requires a certain level of self-awareness, which I'm not fully convinced about.

Different situation though. We were arranging a CVA with our creditors, who were themselves in administration, and the aim is to preserve the business as an ongoing concern. Rangers were in liquidation, the aim of which is supposed to be to sell off the company’s remaining assets in the interest of the creditors. Which clearly isn’t what happened.

Please excuse me, but it's looking awfully like you're trending towards tarring everyone with the same brush ... oh, and trying just a tad too hard whilst doing so.

 

At least make some effort to mock, josh, or banter with a bit of perspective.

 

You're well capable of that.

Yeah and no, it wasn't up to our administrators, it was UBIG's liquidator and they couldn't care less, but at the end of the day we both got away with it and got our stadiums at a massive discount.

Fair play for doubling down, but nae need to scrape the barrel with lower level slurs.

 

My experiences? Mostly genuine fans going to games to support their team (however deluded they may be).

 

I had a few good laughs with Der Hun en-route to Ibrox recently.

 

Oh, by the way ... the worst, and most embarrassing scenes from our recent 🏆 semi-final were down to Hearts fans.

 

The angry post-match numptie arguing with a non-football car driver?

 

Utterly pathetic.

 

The 'entitled' fat-necked eejits in J1 who were aggressive to fellow Hearts supporters when politely asked to sit down?

 

We have our fair share of numpties.
