Charles Green’s Own Goal – Says Rangers Fans Threatened Him Earlier In Year! D’oh!

Death threats by Rangers fans! How dare a newspaper make such vile accusations? Who is responsible for the latest calumny upon the hundreds of thousands of decent supporters of the Ibrox team? We have seen Alex Thomson of Channel 4 News castigated and ridiculed for daring to suggest that threats have come from elements of the Rangers support to journalists, newspapers, football officials and publishers.

Now the Scottish Sun has joined the chorus of anti-Rangers spin by repeating someone else’s no doubt invented accusations against the fans of Rangers.

The Sun reported today as follows:- (My comments are in bold).

IBROX chief Charles Green was warned by cops to be on his guard against deadly mail bombs amid fears he could be targeted by crazed Rangers fans. Worried Green was forced to move between a string of safe-houses after police received credible intelligence that his life was in danger following his takeover of the club.  He was ordered to check his car for explosives and Ibrox staff were given special instructions for handling his post.

Oh. Mr Green says that he was threatened. That cannot be right. This must be a re-hash of old stories, taking comments out of context to create a false impression. Surely this is the Sun simply seeking to ambush the share issue as part of its alleged hatred for Rangers?

In his most in-depth interview since taking over at Ibrox, he admitted: “I got death threats. There were lots of threats.

Oh again. This was an interview.

“I have had visits from Strathclyde Police who were treating the threats seriously. They explained how the staff should look for strange packages and how I should make checks myself, including my car.

“I wasn’t necessarily worried about my safety, it was more the staff and those people in the mail room. These were real times for concern. There was specific intelligence.”

As the threats escalated, Green changed his address every week to stay one step ahead of the yobs who were targeting him.

He added: “I was staying maximum seven nights in a hotel. Once it got known where I was staying then we’d move again. I’d stay in the Holiday Inn, airport or this hotel and that hotel. I had to keep moving during the worst of it all.

“The longest I stayed anywhere was at the Menzies Hotel, where I stayed a couple of weeks. But by this time the relationship with the fans was improving.

What a masterpiece of timing. Mr Green wants to float the company, selling shares to Rangers fans and to institutional investors and fund managers. It strikes me as an unusual tactic to state in a newspaper interview that some of your prospective customers, and indeed possible future shareholders, made death threats and that there was “specific intelligence” about bomb threats.

“Now I’ve got a flat in Glasgow’s West End — and I can live a normal life.”

Good for you Mr Green!  

Well, actually he has not said that they were Rangers fans. Perhaps they were pretending to be so, in the same way as some commentators sought to attribute the malicious emails to Bill Miller as being from “mischief-making” Celtic fans and not from Rangers fans at all.

Yes, that must be it. He is not criticising his own support at all.

Green also faced abuse on the streets of Glasgow from supporters who wanted him to sell the Ibrox side to other would-be buyers, including Walter Smith.

He said: “I had several episodes when I was out and about Glasgow that were unsettling, to say the least. But I was brought up not to run from anything. It was direct confrontation with people who clearly didn’t think much of me. I was physically intimidated on the streets of Glasgow. It was Rangers fans coming up to me and not mincing their words.

“They would shout, ‘F*** off, we want our club back’, while others would be more sinister, threatening me with harm.  There were times it happened when I was alone, but one time I was with Brian Stockbridge, the financial director. Obviously times have moved on and people have got guns and knives now. But I came from one of the roughest mining districts in Britain. Not much can shock me.”

Oh. It was Rangers fans. No qualification – no suggestion that it was people pretending to be Rangers fans. Instead, as well as death threats and bomb threats, he faced physical intimidation by Rangers fans, sinister threats of harm and indeed he mentions guns and knives!

Defiant Green was also flooded with letters and emails from Rangers fans urging him to let someone else take over the struggling club.

He went on: “Sometimes I’d get nice letters that would start off by thanking me for saving the club, but then plead with me to sell up to Walter Smith or John Brown or Brian Kennedy or whoever else was regarded as more appropriate by fans.

“We were always happy to work with any of these groups. But the reality was, people had to commit financially — and no one else was prepared to do it.”

Green added: “The threats weren’t pleasant, but I can honestly say that at no point did they ever make me think twice about being committed to Rangers. But I’m glad to say now that the worst of it is well behind me.”

Maybe this too is corroboration that the abuse which helped persuade Mr Miller to walk away, along with the multi-million pound “black hole” in the accounts, was from Rangers fans.

And the Rangers chief executive told how he is still being confronted in the street by supporters — but now it’s by guilt-ridden fans who say they were wrong to blame him after he took over the club.

Green has claimed that more than £17million has been pledged by ordinary supporters towards a £20million share issue he hopes will be sealed by the end of next month.  He said: “It’s amazing at a time of harsh financial times, and with Christmas fast approaching, that the fans have found the money to back the share issue.”

Has he started the share issue already? It is great that he has been paid money already, which is the clear implication of his statement. Well done Mr Green!

On the other hand, perhaps speaking to the Sun might not have been the wisest mover, for, as well as accusing his own fans of the catalogue of threats and abuse above, the Sun is not a newspaper popular with Rangers or its fans.

———————————————-

Clearly Mr Green, or his PR advisers realised that this might not have been the wisest article to contribute to.

For later today came a statement via the official Rangers website, as follows (with my comments in bold):-

“In remarks attributed to me in today’s Scottish Sun I was trying to get across how far we have travelled together since the dark days of the Club being put into administration and subsequent liquidation of the old company.

Cleverly phrased – “remarks attributed to me”. Suggesting that he did not actually say what was reported without stating that is the case. However, the fact is the he does not deny the statements.

Funny too to see him referring to the liquidation of the old company, which has still not happened!

“No words can express the gratitude I feel towards Rangers fans at the way they have stood by the Club in one of its darkest hours. They have risen to the challenge of helping rebuild this great institution and have won widespread admiration across the world for their backing of Rangers.

“Not a day goes by without foreign TV stations or journalists telling me how amazed they are by the response of fans as they continue to back the Club in huge numbers.

“The reality is there were a few occasions in the very early days where I was clearly not the flavour of the month among some sections of the fanbase and I was subject to taunts and abuse.

Funny too how the death threats, physical intimidation and specific intelligence about bomb threats, requiring him to move from place to place are now reduced down to “taunts and abuse”.

“However, that was short-lived and the fans are now behind me and the board and we have all moved on together.

“I just want to make it clear that I believe Rangers fans are the best in the world and that is my heart felt position. I appreciate the article in today’s Sun has upset some supporters and for that I am truly sorry. As I stated, I was merely trying to illustrate how far we have all come together.”

There is no doubt that the views of some of the Rangers fans towards Mr Green have changed. However, even in this effort at salvaging the reputation of his customers, he could not deny what had been said in the interview, nor was there any effort to apologise for speaking to the Sun.

For a man whose PR skills are normally very good, he has dropped the ball, or scored an own goal with this one.

    Could it be that The Sun has taken a much longer interview with CG and truncated it to suit a sensationalist, ‘sell-papers-at-any-cost’ tabloid agenda?

    Surely not?!

  2. Paul Cochrane

    I’m scared to leave a comment in case I get ‘taunts and abuse!’

  3. I know that Green does not have a full head of hair, but “specific intelligence about comb threats” is a bit mean, isn’t it? 🙂

  4. He will need more than safe houses when the Newco go the same way as their predecessor. And I wonder if Craigie’s castle’s got a moat? In the long term maybe Moonbeams, Craigie boy and Mr Green, along with some others, will feel more secure at her majesty’s pleasure in one of her luxury institutions for offenders.

    Imagine those bluenose supporters being so aggressive, this goes against the grain. I’ve always found them to be the most level headed of chaps. They only usually send threats of violence, bullets and explosive devices to Tims. This is very uncharacteristic of their behaviour and I doubt the veracity of these claims against such an upstanding and respectable section of our Scottish community.

  5. regilives

    Sorry Paul, but any article which contains the mutually exclusive phrases ‘specific intelligence’ and ‘Rangers Fans’ does not make it through my spam filter.

  6. JimBhoy

    Ah ok this is where it was all going… How far we have come together…

    http://www.bbc.co.uk/sport/0/football/20031931

    • JimBhoy

      Pass the fekin sick bucket…!!!!!

    • Adeste Fideles

      from that bbc report “But Rangers supporters have since rallied behind the new regime’s team, now playing in Division Three after the old club that was part of the Scottish Premier League headed for liquidation.”

      note “the old club” part. has someone at the bbc grown a pair?

    • “a world record attendance for a fixture in the fourth tier of any league”. Eh, naw it wisnae; not even close.

  7. mcfc

    Bit of a pattern emerging here. Say something stupid then apoligise soon after e.g Aston Villa, Southampton. Douible the column inches for your snalke oil venture at zero cost. Works especially well if the intended audience don’t see the initial comment as stupid but as bravado bolstering a “and we don’t care” hard man image.

    Man’s a genius !

  8. JimBhoy

    Charles Green. I demand to know the names of those who threatened you!!!

  9. The headline on the Express website is:-
    “Green Puts Death Threats in Context”
    After all, it is the context of a death threat which matters, isn’t it!

  10. ecojon

    In mid-July the story ran everywhere that chico had to move “from safe house to safe house” during his first few weeks in charge of the Ibrox side.

    But by July the story had changed and he was reporting a much warmer welcome from the Bears so why is another old story being retreaded. What is interesting is that the original story talked about having to use ‘safe houses’ but the latest one talks about him moving from luxury hotel to luxury hotel.

    Interesting piece of revisionism – I will need tae tell the cooncil tae cancel the plaques fir the tenement walls. Nice and inscribed: ‘Cherlie sheltered here while the Hanoverian hordes hunted him’ and the date. I had already agreed to go 50/50 on the walking tours I was arranging and on every tour chico was putting in a guest appearance and gonna run past looking haunted wi a pack oh Zombies on his heels. Ah wid ah made a fortune.

    Och well, when chico crosses the watter tae France, jist like Bonnie Cherlie, he’ll hae the Jacobites tae thank for his escape frae Ibrox and his safe passage. Whit’s that? He disnae want tae go in a boat he wants tae drive the Eurostar. That bhoy really is getting above his station.

  11. ecojon

    I apologise but I just had to post this leggo diatribe from 19 July. Oh how times have changed not just in chico’s position but in Leggos 🙂

    THE FOLLOWING HAS THE USUAL SANITY WARNING

    Take his latest lie. One which could have come straight from the pages of a John le Carre novel.

    According to Charles Green, since he first came to Glasgow he has been so reviled by Rangers supporters, that he has been in physical danger and has had to be hidden away in not just one but two, of what he himself called, “safe houses.” But that now he is, again according to no less a source than Charles Green, starting to win over Rangers supporters, to such an extent that he has been able to step out and dine with a lady and move into a flat.

    The truth of the matter is that Charles Green was never in any safe house. He was a guest at the Menzies Hotel for a spell, before moving into the more upmarket, luxurious and much more expensive Raddison.

    A couple of small points, perhaps, but they provide further examples, more proof, of the way Charles Green just cannot help lying. In that respect he is very much like Craig Whyte. There are other similarities between conman, huckster, Craig Whyte and snake oil salesman Charles Green.

    No doubt Charles Green, a clever man in a sort of low snake oil salesman way, has studied Whyte’s tactics, pounced on the weakness in the Rangers rank and file and started exploiting it.

  12. Sir Nicholas Fairbairn

    Chico threatened with the ol Larkhall Love Letter- who would have thought it!!!

  13. Hilarious. Of course he’s using the story, and the Sun, because he knows newspapers need some new slant every day – so why not dress up an old story and spin it to show how far he and the supporters have come. Same old, same old – or perhaps the original claims were just part of a set-up for the story he’s putting about now, part of the whole Long Con…

    I have never believed that he was moving around like Saddam or Osama anyway. It’s just as believable to think he was living off whatever he was picking up in pocket money during his stays at the city’s more salubrious ‘safe houses’ (yeah, right), moving on when he’d subbed enough off his backers to move to where he’d found a better laundry service to keep his suit in good nick.

  14. never mind charles there were no takers, but Scottish Juctice would have saved them, just look at Neil Lennon at swinecastle his attacker not proven but down south Leeds fan gets 4 month, your lucky you were in Scotland and not in your home land, anyway should;nt be long till you go home and live peacefully without anybody going to give you death threats

  15. Antonious F

    A classic tale of the big bad villan, winning over the common people and turning out to be a knight in shining armour. I love a good fairytale, especially one that includes a Green eyed mobster (oops, Freudian slip).

  16. JohnBhoy

    Off topic. According to The Times, Ally has one million shares. Apologies if that’s already been posted by others.

    • ecojon

      @ JohnBhoy

      Do you have a link for that?

      • JohnBhoy

        It’s from The Times article “Rangers Reveal Who Rode To Their Rescue”, 19th October. Here’s the relevant excerpt (includes other info w.r.t. share holders):

        “… The shareholder list is not definitive. Imran Ahmad, the commercial director who owns 2.2 million shares, said that five investors were reluctant to be put into the public eye. Rangers supporters’ groups welcomed the disclosure but called on the club to disclose all the investors.

        Ally McCoist, the manager, who has one million shares, said last week that the fans now had “100 per cent” trust in the new owners.”

  17. COYBIG

    BBC ARTICAL ON CHARLES GREEN’S BACKTRACKING (YOU’D THINK HE HAD A SHARE ISSUE COMMING UP OR SOMTHING)

    “Rangers chief executive Charles Green has apologised to the club’s fans after claiming he had received death threats during his early days in charge.

    Green, whose consortium took over in July, had also said he had been abused in Glasgow streets by Rangers fans.”

    A man has apologised to a group of people, who sent him death threats and abused him in the streets. Because they’re upset at him talking about it? If that’s the case, fuck Scotland, we may as well move to North Korea. There’s only one Kim Jong-un over there.

    “”I appreciate the article in today’s Sun has upset some supporters and for that I am truly sorry,” said the businessman on the club website.

    “I was merely trying to illustrate how far we have all come together.”
    The takeover by Green’s Sevco Consortium had led to demonstrations outside Ibrox Stadium and calls from some sections of fans for a boycott.

    But Rangers supporters have since rallied behind the new regime’s team, now playing in Division Three after the old club that was part of the Scottish Premier League headed for liquidation.”

    What a coincidence, here’s a email Osama bin Laden sent President Obama in 2010:

    To: PresBarackObama@whitehouse.com
    From: OsamabinLaden@nananananayoucantfindme.org
    Subject: Can’t we all just get along?

    Hello there President Obama, can I call you Barack? It’s me, Osama, as you can probably tell from the email address.

    Now, I know we’ve had our differences, I declared death to all Americans etc. But can’t we move on from all of that? All this hide and seek is gettting tiresome, it’s too easy.

    Here’s an idea, why don’t you, and your MILF of a first lady, come over to my cave for tea and cake? We can talk it out, have a laugh, you know. I mean, our names are so alike it’s like it’s a sign or something.

    Anyway, hope to hear from you soon.

    Your new bestest buddy, Osama.

    “”I was trying to get across how far we have travelled together since the dark days of the club being put into administration and subsequent liquidation of the old company,” said Green.”

    Travelled? What is this, Quantum Leap? No wait, it can’t be. Al had 1000’s of suits.

    Club/Company. Toe-may-toe/Toe-ma-toe. It all amounts to the same thing Charlie.

    “”No words can express the gratitude I feel towards Rangers fans at the way they have stood by the club in one of its darkest hours.”

    Well, family and friends normally attend the furnerals of their loved ones.

    “”They have risen to the challenge of helping rebuild this great institution and have won widespread admiration across the world for their backing of Rangers.””

    Great institution? The one that robbed the tax man of at £94+M, and also did honest, hardworking people of millions as well. If you think that makes it great, then I don’t know. Widespread admiration, where from? Anyone got any examples?

    “Rangers’ 2-0 victory over Queen’s Park on Saturday, when they leapfrogged their Glasgow rivals to go top of the league was watched by a crowd of 49,463.

    That was hailed by the club as a world record attendance for a fixture in the fourth tier of any league and was the second biggest in the UK at the weekend after Manchester United’s full house at home to Stoke City.”

    Is this what it’s come to? Really? A set of fans who once celebrated winning cups and Premier League titles, are now celebrating going top of Division 3 and how many people watched them. WOW! how the ‘mighty’ have fallen.

    “”Not a day goes by without foreign TV stations or journalists telling me how amazed they are by the response of fans as they continue to back the club in huge numbers,” said the Yorkshire-born Green.”

    Awk, Charlie, still struggling with the Scottish accent. Foreign journalists? Haha. Huge numbers? No, usual numbers, lower division, cheaper prices.

    “”The reality is there were a few occasions in the very early days where I was clearly not the flavour of the month among some sections of the fanbase and I was subject to taunts and abuse.

    “However, that was short-lived and the fans are now behind me and the board and we have all moved on together.

    “I just want to make it clear that I believe Rangers fans are the best in the world and that is my heart felt position.””

    Which is also known as – Please! Please! Please! Give me your money. I’ve only got one suit…opps, hang on, I dropped my straw. SUCK! SUCK!

  18. I could feverishly write screed upon screed in regards to where Mr Chalres Green and Sevco fans relationship is wholly inappropriate, imperfect, ill-judged and in-peril.

    I will however, in light of this fantastic analysis by Mr McConville, say my piece as succintly as possible;

    I do not often believe a single word uttered by Mr Green, I find him to be both an untrustworthy and undesirable character, I simply detest the man.

    Now that I have made my personal opinions made known, we all know where we stand…ironically however, now is the turn of fact to replace Mr Greens usual works of fiction. In short I absolutely and unequivocally stand by his original description concerning his treatment at the hands of Sevconians.

    More than that, I know it to be a statement of fact!

    It is therefore all the more ironic that given the personal threats concerning his safety and the clear immorality of such actions, that in the here and now, this is the very section of the clubs fanbase with whom Charles Green has forged the strongest of links.

    He claims to have come from a tough mining district and that he has never backed-down to intimidation.

    The harsh reality is though that Charles Green has done exactly that, he decided rather than to maintain his sense of righteousness and his last shred of dignity, that he had to adapt, he had to fit in…that he had to kowtow to their offensive, aggressive and immoral ways.

    He certainly learned quickly…Mr Green sold his dignity up the river, the day and in fact the very hour that he began talking their language, when he began to vindicate their callous disregard for the safety of others, when he began to master the sectarian and bigoted hymn-sheets and phrase-books, he actually empowered the most thuggish element amongst the support.

    He has in effect lowered the seabed in already an Tsi – Laan ocean…I for one hope that his immoral actions and his embarrassing lack of pride only serve to create a tsunami which engulfs all on planet Ibrox and that sweeps him away in a sudden, violent and devestating act of Sevconian brutality.

    He will not be remembered as the creator of a monster but of being it’s cheerleading sidekick, its motivational force, its spiritual guidance…only as we already know far too well; this particular beast neither recognises nor rewards anyone or anything, it is an all consuming force of evil and its targets are indiscriminately selected.

    Mr Green may have further empowered exactly the section of his clubs fanbase who can most damage himself in the long-term. This may be remembered as the most hollow of PR victories.

    I for one can only hope so!

    • cam

      Cheers mate,,i thought i was the biggest loony in here but with one post ,,,you are da man!!

      • Proud Scot

        No cam, you will ALWAYS be the biggest loony on here!

      • Cam, you’re not often right or so I have heard, though in your defence I must admit that if you’d stood by your original assertion then you may very well have been ‘bang on the money’ this time…I truly do believe you would fiercely compete for the coveted title of being the biggest loony on here.
        Sadly however, I must bail out of the competition on the grounds that I am not in your league nor clearly even your home planet.
        I think you also meant ‘on here’, or then again perhaps not. Otherwise you seem to have some very serious mental health issues that require urgent medical intervention, I for one wish you well with those.

    Mr. Green, I will pledge my life for a bit of the planet you are on. Richard Branson is offering trips to space for a few millions but for a mere £10,000, you are bringing “space” right into our homes.
    I am simply baffled that anyone could threaten a humanitarian like you. Your love for your fans is divine in depth and expansive beyond the heavens. Your forgiveness is truly Christ-like and I am converted. You are the messiah, the saviour, the lord of daydreams, the king of DISNEYLAND. And I am not the only one who DISNEY believe a word you say!

  20. Cash Row Lawyer

    I’m curious as to what point the author of the post is getting at. Is it that football clubs can attract some low intelligence pondlife who do some despicable things in ‘support’ of their club?
    If so that should be no surprise to anyone who follows football in general. Witness the long and depressing campaign of hate-mail and death threats against Blackburn Rovers ex-manager Steve Kean.
    I can also recall death threats being sent to Anton Ferdinand, a Norwegian referee who failed to award a penalty for Chelsea in a Champions League game and Nacho Novo when he played for Rangers.
    I’m sure most football fans would deplore such behaviour.

    I assume that this is not the point of the article, that instead this is a supposed comment on Rangers fans in general. For the Rangers obsessed these Rangers fans always seem to consist of a homegeneous group who think and act as one.

    I can appreciate that the author of the article has sought to keep himself occupied after the shameful way that his legal career ended.
    However, looking at the list of ‘topics mused upon’ I would suggest that his Rangers obsession is no more healthy than his behaviour whilst working at his old law firm.

    • COYBIG

      @Cash Row Lawyer

      Don’t think too much now, your mind will run away with itself.

      The blog is simply about Charles Green apologising to The Rangers fans, because he said when he first arrived, they sent him death threats.

      Oh, and i’m sure Paul McConville is greatful that you’re concerned about his welfare. I mean, to read up on his background, then search for his website, log onto his website, read all his blogs, count how many are about The Rangers, then post a comment about his site and blogs. A certain group of people would say you’re obsessed.

      A pot calling a kettle black? Well if the idiom suits the idiot, who are we to argue?

      • Cash Row Lawyer

        Judging from your posts on this page you seem fond of calling people idiots or telling them to fuck off.
        I’m sure it’s a level of debate that suits your intellect though I suspect that there are many who would prefer a slightly more mature discourse.

        As for me being obsessed, I don’t think that reading a couple of Mr. McConville’s blogs and commenting upon them quite reaches the level of obsession. Since the ‘topics mused upon’ gives the exact number of Rangers topics nor is there any need for me to count them.

        I don’t object to Rangers being constantly talked about. I was just speculating that it is possible for a damaged individual with a history of mental health problems to replace previous detrimental behaviour with new but equally damaging behaviour.
        I’m sure a mental health professional would recommend a diverse and varied number of interests. The focus of this blog – Rangers, Rangers and more Rangers comes across as mildly disturbing.

        • COYBIG

          @Cash Row Lawyer

          The only person on here, who i’ve called an idiot, is you. Under whatever alias you’re using for that particular day. Why? Because you’re an annoying excuse for a troll, who repeats the same things, over and over again.

          The only person on here, who i’ve told to ‘fuck off’ is, once again, you. Why should I bother typing out a long-winded plea, asking you to refrain from posting antagonistic comments on this website? When ‘fuck off’ gets my point across.

          It seems you have taken my use of ‘fuck off’ as a botheration. Used out of anger, by a narrow-minded person. One who, it would be unfeasible to expect highly intellectual debating skills from. Especially not on par with someone with the grandeur of yourself. Wrong, wrong, wrong wrong.

          Also, regarding your woeful, sycophantic attempts to demean my intelligence. Were they supposed to be advantageous in regards to your argument? Because all they did was highlight your, wrongly assumed, superiority complex. But, do tell me this tho, oh wise master. When did the calling of a spade as a spade, result in the conclusion of immaturity on the person casting aspersions behalf?

          So, you where only speculating about mental health issues, and is it possible for someone with them, to replace obsessive thoughts about one subject, with ones about another?

          The answer is yes. Obviously it’s possible, but it depends on what mental illness the person is suffering from. And even then, it can very from case to case. Take OCD for example, one person suffering from OCD might have to perform the same rituals every day of their life, just to bring down their levels of anxiety. Where as, another person suffering from OCD, might only have to perform a ritual whenever they feel anxious.

          But why are you asking questions about mental health issues on here? Wouldn’t you be better of asking on a site that deals with mental health issues. Or better still, contact your GP if you feel you have a problem.

  21. pope john paul 1111111111111111111

    maybe if my name ended with bhoy my first comment would have been posted , so is this just a sectarian worship place for celtic fans ? deluded people yes i guess it is as no other person get’s a chance to comment , the joys of a blog eh bhoys .

    • COYBIG

      Yes, it’s a sectarian worship place for Celtic fans. We’re all deluded, and no other person get’s a chance to comment. So fuck off.

      Seriously tho, do you even know the meaning of sectarianism? Because judging by your post Mr Pope, or is it Mr Cash Row? (Who knows? Who cares?) It seems you haven’t got a scooby.

  22. Proud Scot

    Alex Thomson got hammered for suggesting he received threats from Sevco fans, yet Charles Green has effectively backed him up. Why would anyone want to invest? Remember Manchester…….

  23. Daddio

    “foreign TV stations or journalists telling me how amazed they are by the response of fans”

    In the words of Mr McCoist:
    Who are these people? I want to know who these people are.

    Funny how it’s only people from overseas who are impressed…

  24. spurtle

    Reblogged this on spurtle and commented:
    in which Mr Green accuses his own fans of a catalogue of threats and abuse…. surely not?

    • lordmac

      with the score now being 3-0 and proven rangers fans do, DO threats
      send bullets and nail bombs,
      the Sun the Hearld and the Record now look like a busted flush.
