Iโ€™m all for consistency however how anybody could celebrate a trophy won during war time is beyond me, completely disgusting.

09 May 2019 11:11:48
Completely disgusting? Have a word with yourself. So the thousands upon thousands that attended those games to forget about the worlds problems are completely disgusting? What about the titles during the Falklands or other conflicts should we just forget about them too?

C of ibrox.

Learn some history before you sprout garbage. all Scottish teams suffered the lose of many players through both call up and voluntering. The larger clubs probably more than others.

The league set ups were suspended and local leagues introduced.

Since world war 2, all conflicts and wars have been fought by volunteers or persons on national service, there has been no general call up. That also included the Falklands conflict and gulf wars.

You mention service like it's just another job, believe me it thankfully is except, when on board ships waiting to enter port Stanley, doing an aircraft service with live fire around you, or a solider walking the many roads during any conflict or pulling a stag in a conflict zone.

You show no respect to the many that served, were injured or paid the ultimate price, with your whinging about war titles, as do others from my side who dispute the official list.

Banter is one thing. disrespect another.

Well said anotherhampden, as an ex serviceman myself I couldn't agree more.

09 May 2019 14:53:32
Cheers cletusvandamme. sixteen years in the air force myself, would have done 22 but for redundancy due to downsizing. Served in many zones with different branches of the services, have friends and colleagues who supported many clubs in Scotland and the uk, and the banter was always good but no one every raised this stupid subject.

09 May 2019 15:26:03
Ed, apologies if my response wasnโ€™t constructive enough, my blood was boiling and I was struggling to believe what I was reading. I think Anotherhamdenwin sums my view up nicely.

09 May 2019 15:42:14
Wind your neck in! He made a suggestion so what. Iโ€™ve got news for u your not the only 1to ever serve in the Armed forces! And you donโ€™t speak for every ex service man including me.

09 May 2019 17:02:01
17 years in the British Infantry, 7 medals for my troubles. Each to their own. Chill out.

09 May 2019 17:14:16
Wheres my replys?

09 May 2019 18:56:02
36Ulsterdivision. I need to ask did you only serve with rangers supporters. would love to know your serve branch, your regimental unit, station, ship or royal marine company.

09 May 2019 19:01:37
An ex service man myself, I think reading the posts its clear we need to tone down the replies a tad. Each is entitled to their opinion, I've not read anything that would call for an angry response, more open a debate, even if some find the topic distasteful, you can always ignore.

Also I think the OP has a point with regards to the apparent hypocrisy in celebrating during more recent conflicts/ wars. Accepted, nothing can really compare to WW1 and 2 however in recent years our men and women were being blown to bits in the desert and thousands of them were at constant risk of death or severe injury many months at a time over a number of years.

Ibrox was still full at the weekend and rightly so, life goes on, life must go on, that's the British way. In private or with each other we remember our fallen brothers and sisters at times during the year, the day we cannot do that we fail as a society and our enemies have won. Unless your the recipient of a VC or GC your argument has to be watertight before taking the moral high ground on any subject. Just IMO though.

09 May 2019 19:34:57
Tjbb. Fully respect your view, and your right, none of us here today have made the ultimate sacrifice.

I pay respect in my own way every remembrance day and on particular dates highlighted by the rbl and various associations to pay homage on anniversaries that the general public now let slip, but I know many respect the fallen from Glasgow and scotland, and the links they have to them.

In particular I pay respect to James stokes VC, a friend of my late grandfather who died in 1945, who could have avoided service and claimed being in a reserved occupation but like many across our city and country put service before themself. I sure there were many from the rangers family who did the same thing.

Wearing a certain colour top has never been a question on any application for the services, and neither does the assentation ask you to swear allegiance to any football club.

L17. trying to work out your service.

09 May 2019 19:57:39
Not that it really matters but I was in Royal Irish regiment! The point is you and a few others jumped down the guys throat for making a suggestion! And it isnโ€™t just Scottish football that argues over the point people down south were arguing over who was Newcastle all time scorer because Jackie milburns goals during the war were not counted and some people thought they should of been!

09 May 2019 20:11:42
36 I am actually lol. knowing the make up of your unit. not many hoops in there.

Your right about records elsewhere and the structures in place at the time but I hope your like me in thinking that those around at that time would not be squabbling about titles or records as they served but more that people got to enjoy their sport and life as it was, as others did their duty home and abroad, as those locally did their own auxiliary duties as required.
