Rangers FC Website - Why so bad?

Danger Zone

Just the tip...
Sometimes I think people get too wound up by the website but that’s is really embarrassing to be honest.

If you can’t even publish the correct score you probably shouldn’t be looking after that page.

the website will be on the list of upgrades no doubt. it would seem the media department are putting most of their resources into twitter, instagram and RTV operations and behind the scene footage.

With European football still being played, we'll be getting hits from all over the world from fans looking at who they want to avoid in the next stage in Europe. Pretty embarrassing.

You’d imagine our website is fairly popular.

It does appear a rather amateur set up all round. Was this latest refresh a spiv time doing though?

I have vague recollections of it being updated then?

You could buy something out the box.

I find it a tough navigate.

That black bar at the top used to lie half way down the page when you scrolled down on a phone. I was counting my blessings that they at least got that fixed :))

Not the Spivs I’m afraid.

We took on a provider called blue2 after ‘a competitive pitch’ around 4 years ago


Rangers Football Club has unveiled a newly designed website created by digital agency Blue2.

Selected after a competitive pitch, Blue 2 worked through the summer developing a new website for the club, compatible across a series of devices.

Stewart Robertson, managing director of Rangers Football Club, added: “We are delighted to announce our digital partner agreement with Blue2 Digital and to launch our first project together.

“Blue2’s fresh design will help to bring supporters closer than ever to their club and I am sure our worldwide fanbase will enjoy the rich content and features available on the new platform.

"We are in the process of rebuilding Rangers Football Club and a revamped website is the latest step in that process."

Blue2 adds Rangers FC to its portfolio of sporting clients including St Andrews Links Trust and sportsoracle



Their clients appear to include St Andrews Links, DC Thomson, Dundee FC, Scottish Hockey, Virgin Money and SSE.

It's just another example where bad organisation and poor operations management swims through the club. We don't do a lot of things very well.

When you have a Managing Director in charge of day to day operations like Stewart Robertson it should come as no surprise.

Yes, the board have provided loans etc. and they eventually appointed a manager like SG. But outwith that there are so many below par things in and around our club.

ive been a long time moaner about the state of the website and its upkeep

every single day from midnight til around 6am our online ticket shop is 'down for maintenance' its a utter shambles
To be fair, that's the exact kind of time that system should be down at.

Given how outstanding the social media team have been the passed 2 years, it's odd how much the website has been neglected

It took them god knows how many years to change the “Sold Out” to “Not on-sale yet”. The club have shot themselves in the foot because people would’ve went on the website and saw the likes of a game against Hearts and it says “Sold Out” but it’s really not it’s just that the tickets haven’t went on-sale yet.

The website is an absolute joke to navigate.

As an old codger I don't know much about web sites and stuff like that but when you compare the layout to some other clubs it does look a bit of a mess.

The website is a shambles. Absolutely grinds me having to click buy tickets to be able to sign in. Also hate the way it opens a new web page each time you click on something

It's appalling. The info for Academy players is terrible, has their name and no other information. I emailed Stewart Robertson and the SLO and offered to maintain it, foc. Neither of them replied.

The worst thing about it is they could pay someone straight out of uni to come in and they'd have it sorted within a matter of weeks.
Mate you could stick a £20 job up on Airtasker and someone could do better.

These jobs shouldn’t go to market these days. The position should be headhunted or a Consultant with (dare I say it) social media influencing skills should be brought in on retainer or a short term contract.

Our supporters club information is wrong on the site. I emailed them about 3 years ago to correct it, nothing happened, I emailed back last year and it’s still not been updated.

Other than buying tickets or reading club statements I don't really use it to be honest. Having decided to cleanse myself of Twitter recently I've found myself back there more often and It's pretty poor. Full of old and inaccurate information.

The website could be a huge help to the club.

It could be turned into an alternative to newspapers and carry magazine-type articles.

It could also be used to challenge media attacks on the club and support.


People don't like when issues like this are raised but I don't think the club has a clue when it comes to propaganda.

Rangers is run by people who seem to think it's just a bog standard football club and a job's just a job anyway.

I take that back, they have now updated it :D Best to check these things before coming on and making a James Hunt of yourself:cool:

The last major website upgrade was in late Summer 2015, after the ousting following the winter of spivcontent

It constantly gets things wrong or the text is messed up and doesn't get fixed for days.

I really hope it's not someone sole job to fix this site.

The website is amateur at best , the ticket hotline not much better, badly needs some investment and people running it who actually seem to care about fans. Still raging from when I got offered a season ticket in the summer was right behind the dugouts cracking seat , the guy phoned and I said I’d take it but was at work never had my Card on me to make payment right there and then , asked if he could hold it for an hour and I’d go home and then to ibrox and pay in full , and the guy wouldn’t do it and cut me off , needless to say I never got the ticket , got another one but nowhere near as good a seat, small things like this piss me off when we really are the best and most loyal fans and sometimes get treated like crap.

Paying a company thousands per year for that utter shambles is damning frankly. Slow, clunky, hard to navigate. Errors all over it, near every section is pretty poor it’s actually worse than what we had 20 years ago.
