Yet another strange week in the life for a Rangers Supporter, mind you it seems like every week over the past 3 years has been a strange one !!!!.
We won the away league game last Saturday with an eventual 3 nil win over Dumbarton. Goals from Miller, Wallace and Boyd
With Hibs and Hearts sharing the spoils on Sunday we are now 7 points behind Hearts with a game in hand.
A 1 nil win (MacLeod) at Ibrox against St Johnstone in the League Cup saw Rangers progressing into the semi-final with possible opponents being Them, the Sheep or the Arabs.
It was one of the lowest crowds in recent years attracting only 13,023 supporters.
Off the field it’s been a wee bit busier :
Philip Nash resigned as CFO last Friday
Ashley gave a 2 million pound loan facility which was agreed by the board on Saturday
Graham Wallace resigned as CEO on Monday
Derek llambias and Barry Leach became consultants on Tuesday
David Somers (non exec Chairman) became Executive Chairman today
Our next game is another trip to Dumbarton with a Scottish cup tie on Saturday 1st November with a 7pm kick off Baku time. The game as yet has not been confirmed on Rangers TV but either way the Bear Pit will be open for members. If the game is no on the telly then we can have a game of Killer pool and play a few videos/tunes via the internet.
The Clansman is having a Halloween Party tomorrow night (Friday 31st Oct) from 7.30pm onwards, hopefully we will see ‘Wonder woman’ again this year.
Special mention of the week goes to Lucky George who last Saturday broke the Guinness Book of Records for gabbing without taking a breath…yip the whole game – first half, half time and second half !!!!!!
The committee are now considering whether to provide members with earplugs !!!!!
Also attached is an ORSA (Oceania Rangers Supporters Association) October newsletter which was forwarded to the club. Bahrain True Blues and the Dubai Loyal have recently joined ORSA.
