Murray sold the club down the river for his own benefit. He bolstered his companies and got a knighthood out of it. He did it for a reason.being going on for years, give them an inch etc. Murray has to shoulder a lot of the blam with the lack of defence for Findlay/Ferguson (Duncan) etc. our pr is non existent and everyone can have a free shot
Spot on. Only a week ago, last Friday to be exact, a brief statement was released from the Rangers Board in response to the Club being cited for our staff's actions in our last two away League games. In that statement the Board quite clearly stated that a further communication, probably more robust respionse, would be issued after that weekend. Well to date not a single word has been issued.Its not a war. To have a war you need 2 sides to attack.
Out board are an absolute disgrace and I'm getting fucking sick of it.
Only in terms of the publicity surrounding signings and so on and the fact that Celtic did not provide a serious challenge.Ì can. All the way through 9 Murray controlled the media.
That has to be one of the most ludicrous statements I have ever seen on here.Ì can. All the way through 9 Murray controlled the media.
By 'they' do you mean the Celtic support? If so, this is a perversion of the truth.It's a strange one - they think that we are far better at going on the attack and defending ourselves and see their board as far too passive.
On here we think that they are far better at it and our board are too passive.
I think our board get way too hard a time over this - they can't issue a statement about everything, however in the social media age supporters will analyse almost every article in the press that related to Rangers and call for action.
At the same time I think we give their board far too much credit.
Talk of a PR war is a bit nuts - both boards are trying to appease the support, while having to pick their battles because outside of supporters most people view the volume of these statements as ridiculous.
All the while 'journalists' egos get massaged, and they will privately be pissing themselves at how easy it is get a reaction as they have half of Glasgow talking about their article - I guess it's their only way of trying to stay relevant in a dying industry.
This! When they do what they have done this week, they have a compliant media full of cheerleaders to their cause. We don't and end up being criticised and ridiculed when we go on the attack. It's easy to criticise the board, but when the media is full of people like English, Keevins, Stewart, Sutton, Spiers, Sutton etc etc, it's difficult to control the narrative. We've seen that in the 3 weeks (and counting) since we had the temerity to turn them over in their own midden. Sadly in Scotland, the tail is wagging the dog.It helps just a tad when the media is full of tims

As fans surely we can get more organised too? What about regular orchestrated tifo displays calling out media double standards- paedophile cover ups etcetera at selected points during matches including the Govan Stand where tv will pick it up.it annoys me because were always there for the club through thick and thin and we always will be but when the support needs backing nothing
Maybe I am - however it’s what I observed during the fallout from our win at Parkhead.By 'they' do you mean the Celtic support? If so, this is a perversion of the truth.
As for being unable to issue a statement about 'everything', the only statement in recent months was an initial comment after the Parkhead match about introducing VAR.
Since then, we had a brief comment saying that the club would release a statement following the trumped up SFA charges 'after the weekend'.
Which was last weekend - and so far, nothing!
You're completely out to lunch on this issue.
I've said this before, their in house PR isn't much better than ours, its the fact that the media report it differently.The problem for us is that they ARE the media, in the main. How many pundits and journalists represent them ? Far too many, and it isn't by chance. Media, politics, you name it. They speak as one, as most corrupted people do.
The fhilth effectively own PR in this country, and will do as long as the media remain as one sided as they are. Can we honestly rely on it to serve us ? or local/national politics ? Publicly funded BBC Scotland ? It's just pissing in the wind as far as Rangers are concerned.
I agree. Unless a direct working relationship was to be proven between their club and the various media outlets backing them then they have little advantage over us in my opinion. Their statements and PR initiatives can be pretty poor and cringeworthy. The media do it all for them. How it got to this point ? I have a good idea, but I see no way of reversing it at present. Rangers are damned if they do, and damned if they don't.I've said this before, their in house PR isn't much better than ours, its the fact that the media report it differently.
Gerrard saying Morelos is targets, laughed at basically.
Lemmon saying witch hunt for Griffiths, media backing it.
Go back to warburton, mentions plastic pitches, gets pooh-pooh'ed, the sainted brenda does it and it is such an insight!
As for this latest drama, this was one comment by a pundit, nothing major TBH, nothing all his managers have said before, they have said it is a witch hunt and the media should be laughing at that, but no they are all falling into line.
The Rangers website carried an article in which Stewart Robertson made some comments in quotation marks about VAR (none about racism, though). He refused to criticise referees.Maybe I am - however it’s what I observed during the fallout from our win at Parkhead.
We highlighted the that Morelos received racist abuse. From what I saw Celtic supporters claimed it didn’t happen and were furious at their board for its response and felt that we played the PR game better than they did.
That could be a one off reaction rather than an overall feeling I would have to concede.
It’s a bit cute to say ‘an initial comment about introducing VAR’ - that statement also said Morelos was being judged differently from other players, and specifically detailed a number of recent decisions that have been incorrectly given against us.
