Rangers v Cowdenbeath
Saturday 28th March 2015 - KO 3pm
|Queen of the South
I have a very distinct memory of lunchtime in my primary school. Not that the food was that great, but on certain days, it would be burgers… and who doesn’t like a burger? (sorry vegans/vegetarians). Myself and a few others would try and eat it as fast as possible in order to go back up for more… so it was sad times when the call ‘No Seconds!!’ came hurtling through the airwaves.Add a comment
It's been another fascinating few weeks in the myopic goldfish bowl of the Scottish football/sectarianism debate.
First of all, Chris Graham, appointed as a non-executive director to represent fans in the Rangers boardroom, resigned after the media exposure of a two-month old tweet in which the prophet Mohammed was engaged in a sexual act. The tweet, not one of Graham's proudest moments I'm sure, was in retaliation to the provocative comments of radical Islamist preacher Anjem Choudary on the day of the Charlie Hebdo atrocities. Now, the overly crass nature of his social media message can't be defended but the irony was clear in relation to the context of the day's events and free speech. Was it enough to resign over? Well, that decision was Chris' but I doubt he or Rangers fancied the overwhelming attention the media was bringing upon him and the club. Perhaps it was the right call to step down for the sake of his own family’s safety but Rangers fans should never forget the associated witch-hunt.Add a comment
Freedom of Speech – In the past week there have been three episodes that have infuriated the Rangers support. Rightly or wrongly, many have called for some kind of retribution. But I have often found myself taking a step back from the furore. Do we have a just cause, or are we being swept up in the usual vitriol that flows back and forth? I would like to go through these episodes later, when a foundation on which to judge them has been built.Add a comment
