The last home game prior to the international break was a welcome home victory versus Partick Thistle. It was a sombre occasion that was marked by welcoming members of the armed forces to mark Armistice Day. The display that could be seen in the Sandy Jardine stand was fantastic, and a poignant tribute to those who made the ultimate sacrifice. As always, the conduct of our support and their continued backing for our armed forces is exceptional.
As the hunt for the lesser spotted Rangers manager enters a third week (or is it fourth?) the speculative froth - we've had too may managers for it be a frenzy anymore, the law of diminishing returns has well and truly set in - is going as flat as the head on a poorly pulled pint in an Edinburgh alehouse.
Recently I spoke to former Rangers midfielder and Scotland international Kevin Thomson. Thomson signed for Rangers in January 2007 for a £2 million fee from Hibernian. Signed by club legend Walter Smith to bolster midfield options, Thomson went on to win back to back SPL titles in 2009 and 2010 as well as being part of the side that reached the Europa League final in 2008.
Rangers cruised past Partick Thistle with a comfortable 3-0 win at a chilly Ibrox on Saturday.
Unless you've been stuck on the moon over the last few days, you won't have failed to note another EBT hullabaloo has formed after leaked communications between Celtic and the SFA. To cut to the chase and avoid you falling asleep, Celtic, aided and abetted by the SPFL it seems, are demanding (another) independent investigation into governance of Scottish football in and around the period Rangers utilised certain tax schemes - recently declared ineffective by the Supreme Court. In other words, although their cheerleaders in the media will deny it, they want further punishment for Rangers, most probably in the form of honour stripping. Indeed, it's this cheer-leading that is of primary interest to yours truly.

Two tragic events in Rangers history will remain defining moments for every Rangers supporter. They stand as a guage of football's real importance while reminding every football fan of just how safety and organisation are a huge necessity at our stadia.
