Right troops. Not sure if this will get posted or not but here goes. I’ve been quite vocal about society being so sensitive regarding singing etc. Never negative about the team even when were struggling.

Derry’s walls,
The sash,
Fathers advice,
Build my gallows,
Every Saturday we follow,
Every other Saturday,
Blue blue sea of ibrox ,

All the above are Non sectarian.

The billy boys. (The greatest football chant in history as far as getting the team lifted and volume except for 1 word) can we change it?

We are Rangers super Rangers (1 word again but there seems to be no sanctions with this song)

As far as the UVF and YCV go these organisations have a long standing affiliation with our club and I’m not talking about terrorist organisations as these were divisions in war. Some keep saying this has nothing to do with Glasgow Rangers FC but the said organisations have been affiliated with our club for 100 years.

Other religions believe in certain things that would make our skin crawl. Every day I’m reading about catholic’s who follow us (which I think is superb as some of my best mates are catholic) who are disgusted with the songs but it was probably a lot worse when you chose us so why the hysteria now?

Is it a coincidence that the majority of the UEFA based countries are of catholic religion? They tried to destroy an institution because of a tax avoidance scheme that wasn’t illegal. They have fined us and closed areas in our stadium due to offensive signing.

They have tried to strip league titles from us. When is justice going to be served because nothing we will ever do will be as bad as 🤫 because we can’t speak about it.

Is it a coincidence that this is happening because this is the strongest we have been in years. Please don’t jump on band wagons because they are petrified that we are coming.

I respect your post and agree with parts of it however I’m going to be honest and give you my opinion.

The UVF and YCV have ABSOLUTELY NO affiliation to our club. The may be linked due to our strong Norther Irish support but those organisations have no formal relationship with the current Rangers board. Like you I think it’s fantastic we have multi religions who follow us and i couldn’t care if you are black, white, green, yellow, gay, straight, trans etc!

The part of your post regarding UEFA and catholic country’s I find frankly ridiculous. UEFA did not try and destroy us. That’s a paranoid view point. The 🤫 you are referring to is child abuse. Again nothing to do with Rangers, we are getting punished for signing songs which are viewed as sectarian and offensive. The child abuse scandal sweeping ALL of the UK will be dealt with in due course.
UEFA don’t care if we’re coming or not, This is our issue. not theirs.

Great post. the billy boys was banned before years ago. All of a sudden it has come back over last few season and your right has always or seemed to be greatest atmosphere and lift the team. derry walls is also a good atmosphere lifter. let's go with that. Although some of the new songs are decent i personally like the older ones.

Sharpshooter, I’m shaking my head at some of your comments, particularly the affiliation to our club of the UVF and YCV. Rather than trying to find excuses for this unacceptable behaviour let’s just accept that the singing at Ibrox by sections of the support is out of date and totally unacceptable in the modern era. This is a deep rooted problem and dare I say is a generational problem as well. What was accepted in the 70’s and 80’s is no longer acceptable and we must do everything we can to eradicate it. When the manager, director, media, UEFA etc all voice how offensive and vile it is, we should be acting upon it and not playing the victim. Readers will probably be sick reading about this so it’s time for the talking to stop and action to be taken. There’s plenty other songs to sing, hopefully next week we’ll be singing “can we play you every week” 😀.

Sharpshooter what a terrible post more than 50% of those songs have nothing to do with rangers. They are about a war that has what to do with rangers? Answer me that.

Sharpshooter we are guilty as charged as for the UVF and YCV what have they got to do with Rangers their is no vendetta accept the punishment cut out the offensive songs or add ins to songs get behind the team or if you can’t please just stay away.

People are saying it’s generational etc and hoping it will die out, it won’t. Grown men are taking sons and daughters to the games getting pissed and singing sectarian songs to and from the games every single week, fact. It will continue until action taken by all supporters clubs and fan groups to change lyrics to said songs and promote on buses and in stands and even then it will take a while and displease most.

Some of you have totally missed what he said here. Does the British army have no affiliation with Rangers? The Ulster Volunteer Force and the Young Citizen Volunteers were regiments that fought in the first world war. Obviously, these days they names have totally different objectives. Its a huge big can of worms lol.

Absolute idiots. Derry’s Walls, the Sash, Build My Gallows?

Rangers are a SCOTTISH FOOTBALL TEAM, not a Northern Irish political institution.

See if you love Northern Ireland that much, please feel free to move there and sing your idiotic songs and give the rest of us peace.

Sing songs about RANGERS. End of.

{Ed001's Note - this is what I don't get. Why is no one singing songs about the players? You know, showing support for your team rather than something utterly unrelated to it. We used to spend hours before games trying to come up with new chants and telling everyone we knew them in the hope that they would be taken up by the stadium. Is that not a thing in Scotland? That can be so much fun, laughing at the terrible ones and then, chanting them for a laugh and realising actually it works.}

25 Aug 2019 12:20:42
C of Ibrox ok then by that logic let’s have a song at the next game about the Nepalese Gurkhas who fought as part of the British Army during WW1 and WW2?

25 Aug 2019 13:06:37
Aye great idea let's go!

25 Aug 2019 13:32:29
Ed, you’re missing the point, which is probably a credit to you that you don’t understand this mentality. To these people, Rangers and football are a distant 3rd in their priorities behind their hatred and fear of Catholics and their “loyalty” to Ulster, a place most of them have never been to and couldn’t find on a map. The funniest part of it is, I have a lot of Northern Irish pals who think west of Scotland people are absolute morons for singing about this stuff when they haven’t lived it. I remember one of my pals from Belfast absolutely rinsing some wee guy from Lanarkshire who was trying to lecture him about “heritage” and “tradition”. Just made him look like the stupid, ignorant wee boy he was. Which is what every Scottish person singing these songs is, regardless of their age. Stupid, ignorant wee boys. Stop the singing, support your team if you are really a fan.

{Ed001's Note - it is a shame because they are missing a huge part of the joy of support. Hatred is not fun.}

And I respect yours mate. The UVF and YCV were regiments in the British Army who in fact do have a strong affiliation with our club ie armed forces days at ibrox etc and our friends across the water. My post was not aimed at blaming UEFA for us getting sent down the leagues I just meant in general but having read it back I can see why this may be misinterpreted.

We are certainly not coming for UEFA either. Just Celtic. Anyway I’m not going to dwell on this just wanted a different side of things put out there and will take whatever comes my way. Cheers.
