Just when you thought we’d all laughed enough, Club 1872 release a statement

AND it starts with a wee moan stating the obvious before turning into a sales pitch to Bears to renew their season tickets and to be ready to contribute further. These guys at Club 1872 seem to be in dodgy Dave’s back pocket…

“In common with all Rangers supporters, the directors of Club 1872 are extremely concerned by the disgraceful capitulation of the Rangers team that faced Celtic on Sunday.

“We have had contact from members asking us to convey their concerns to Rangers and can reassure them and the wider support that this has been done.

“Rangers supporters deserve a team which as a bare minimum shows pride and commitment in the club they represent. That pride and commitment was sorely lacking on Sunday and the responsibility for that must be borne at all levels of the club.

“What we have seen this season is not good enough and we know that the Rangers board and executive team are well aware of that fact.

“Rangers supporters will no doubt once again show their incredible support for the club through season ticket renewals but we now need to see real progress towards returning Rangers to the top of Scottish football with a management team and quality of player that can secure success.

“It is clear that a great deal of further investment is going to be required to take the club to the position that our supporters correctly believe it should occupy.

“Millions have been ploughed into the club by the current board and investors but it has not seen a satisfactory return on the pitch.

“We cannot just assume that because we are Rangers we will automatically return to the top at some point. It is going to take further investment, good decision making and everyone working together.

“Much of the responsibility for that progress is going to fall on the current RIFC board but we believe Rangers supporters, through Club 1872, can also shoulder part of the burden – because it’s our club.”

Late last night we had the story about the Rangers supporter protest at Murray Park – read HERE – and today the story about Miller and Wallace proved to be correct with both of these senior players now suspended and completely out of the picture at Ibrox.
