Thanks mate. Honestly he died early 50s, my grandad died not long after, and my connection to everything bar Rangers was broken. For me though hearing some of the amazing stories on here through some tremendous posters like yourself, are my bridge to the past. It makes this site so unique, in that everyone of us share the same result, only our journies vary.

Thank you Grigo

Top class, as always mate.

Mate, one of the reasons I'm so intense at times. My dad was killed in Oct 2011. While we were leading the league. He missed all of our journey, and my personal one won't be complete till I can raise a glass to him as league champs
Lost my dad a month earlier than you mate. The last game he saw was when we pumped them at Ibrox 4 2 on 18th Sep. He would have loved today.

Its one of the unique things we all share. Sitting where our fathers sat. Tracing our grandfathers steps, but in the end its never enough. All I can say though, is if youre like me, we take solice in great days like today. I sincerely wish you all the best, and let's hope your dad witnessed today. Much love mate

John Talbot Alloa, I believe the Smirnoff would have been flowing, God Bless you John.
I used to travel on the bus John Talbot ran many years ago, i know he had health issues and last spoke to him at my pals funeral, he was a top man, did he pass recently? i have been at the opposite end of the country for many years so don't keep bang up to speed with local news.

Sad to hear that Renoranger. Condolences to all your family and friends. I think we should all raise another glass to you and your brother Robert.

Glass raised!
My brother Robert ( wee Rab ) who we buried today .

I’ve raised a few glasses today but one special one to my Dad who passed in May a victim of covid. The man who took me to Ibrox in January 1968 as a nine year old and instilled a love of The Rangers in my two younger brothers and I which today Is burning brighter than ever. Here’s to you Dad I’ve no doubt you watched from above and saw The Rangers that you love.

I believe with all my heart that your Dad will have been watching YOUR journey the whole time.
God bless and keep you Sir and here’s to your Dad.

What a truly beautiful thread. No single post has failed the criteria Bill Strath set down. Not a single one of the departed failed in their duty as a true Ranger if they have made such a mark on all of us

Indeed it is

We all argue bicker and have views on our club and institution but thats because we care

A club like no other and I am not afraid to stand loud and proud beside u all

To my old boy too, gone nearly 4 years now. Season tickets together for 20 years, the first year going without him was tough and the day we lift our trophy again will be extra emotional, as it will be for so many others.

I'll raise a glass to him and to all the others mentioned, WATP.
