Any news reports on this? I’ve not went through the whole thread but I would imagine if it’s an assault on someone connected to Rangers then it would be hot news surely?

especially if it was motivated by sectarianism?

Doesn,t matter if this is true or not this is what a dignified silence brings
This goes way beyond the football club. We have a govt running the country, who see us as an obstacle to their independence dream. We now have a poltisiced police force who dance to their tune, by protecting ira supporters on the streets and happily making statements that call out the people protesting them as right wing loyalist thugs acting like Mosley's black shirts.

They are determined to paint people who are unionists as people who are holding scotland back with racist sectarian behaviour and hoping to turn us into scotlands shame, so that they can tell voters is this the kind of people you want to be associated with.

And you know what it's working. Dignified silence isn't a Rangers problem, it's all our problem.

The msm in Scotland have spent decades demonising our club and fans,Agitating and stoking the hatred but when one of ours gets serious hurt or worse not if but when they will stand back and deny any responsibility.

Why has Traynor suddenly became their main target in the last few weeks. It was almost as if the word went out. Surely it is within the his remit to issue PR on behalf of the club so why has this become such an issue.
Because the likes of michael stewart blew the dog whistle!

If they Alfie car tampering scenario has taught us anything it should be to hold fire until the full facts are established.

Hope JT is okay.

Please stop blaming Rangers for this, its deeper than that much deeper. It needs to start with politicians who seem scared to be associated with unionist people in this country. When you read of a Tory spokesman slating the Billy boys as vile sectarianism, whilst saying not a jot about the murder brigade fest we get over the city, then we're in trouble. Problem here is, our so called unionist politicians are not unionist enough, there almost ashamed.

Its clear now that nats dont care about how they get independence, they actually believe that creating division and turning a blind eye to blatant corruption is a small price to pay. They have a twisted logic, ever tried to have a normal conversation with one of them? Ive stopped even trying now, they are beyond reasoning with.

Like him or loathe him Traynor is seem by media scum as the voice behind all things Rangers. When they collectively target him there are some idiots in every walk of life who take it too far and attack the individual linking it with what he represents.
However the way things have been amount to incitement by the press and they are responsible for this incident.

This is where all this stems from, dont kid yourself. Why aren't politicians standing up in that place out in Edinburgh and calling this out. Seems to me they dont want to upset their cosy little lifestyle out there.

Us coming on here and blasting the club is not the answer. Tim's got into this position through politics, for the sake of unionism in this country it's some strong unionist voices needed out there, not scared to upset their little cosy relationship and ruffle a few feathers. PR is used in scotland, maybe that's a way to get people in with a strong unionist voice.

Aggravated normally means using a weapon.

Not sure what the legal context of ‘aggravated by sectarianism’ means

A few posters have said it’s open season, and that’s exactly the two words that went through my head.

Its what underpins the nat movement that concerns me, namely the strong alliance they have formed with sinn fien. I have on good authority that wee nasty nicola is never away from the place. The majority of blind voters have no idea, nor do they even care so long as helps to break up the union.

We've been open season since 2012 and I'm fucking beyond sick of it all.

And I despise being part of this warped toxic shite wee country.

Something needs to be done about the poisonous hate filled bigoted anti Rangers blogs that pollute the Internet and fast.

We’ve allowed trash like James Forrest at the yahoo blog to bring Gerrard’s children into the mix to score points and print trash aimed at stirring up hatred against JT. Other sites like Scottish football monitor regularly write blogs about Rangers being funded by drug money.

No wonder so much hatred exists for Rangers when we let a bunch a filth loose to print what they want to tens of thousands daily.

The BBC despise Traynor because he absolutely slaughtered them in his leaving speech, with regards the treatment they were handing out to Rangers. He laid it bare and told the truth, and they still see it as an act of betrayal.

This is where a dignified silence gets you.. Open season on the club & it’s employees. Got to be coming out on all fronts with guns blazing. Unfortunately we won’t & it will be the same stance as always.

Whilst the club could definitely have been more outspoken on this issue you are right to point out that it has a far wider context to it .

The word poison runs through Scotland like a stick of rock these days.

The erosion of our standing in this country has been planned since the 60's. Our fathers and their fathers took their eyes off the ball and accepted that we would always hold power and the controlling influence in the country.
Whereas they played the long game and took the shitey jobs then infiltrated councils and unions like a spreading like a cancer. Only employing and promoting their own which was the endgame. They now have the legal profession and the police with the political party to boot.
The games a bogie.

Everything’s Rangers fault.

We should’ve left to play in the lower leagues in England when we had a chance after we were demoted. The poisonous view of anything Rangers related is widespread up here and a move down there would’ve allowed us to prosper and ignore them while they played prehistoric football against each other 4 times a season.

Lets not be kidded here.They tried to kill us forever and failed and it is still eating away at them and they will do anything or anyone to get at us.
This demonisation will continue as long as they get away with it.
