  2. Rangers set down the Law

    John Gow

  3. Which players will be leaving Ibrox?

    John Gow

    It seems Rangers players Kal Naismith and Anestis Argyriou have been told they are no longer required at Ibrox. Football is a ruthless game but it seems a fair enough decision from Ally McCoist -- although it would seem strange they can be surplus wh...

  4. Gers' preseason all about fitness, team bonding

    John Gow

    Rangers' 2-0 win away to Brora Rangers on Sunday in their first match of the preseason was a nice bonus, but not much else. Preseason football is always a 'phony war' with the emphasis on fitness and supporters should not take results seriously eithe...

  7. Rangers squad building nicely, but questions still remain

    John Gow

    If Rangers fans put financial issues aside and concentrate on their starting eleven for the Second Division (or whatever it will be called in the new Scottish Professional Football League) then most of the new signings from Ally McCoist make sense. ...

  9. Would Rangers and the fans accept an SPL2 invite?

    John Gow

    John Gow

    As regular readers know, these pages have often rallied against the notion that league reconstruction in Scottish football should be rushed through so that all SFL3 results for season 2012-13 are null and void. The idea that the Scottish Football ...

    John Gow

  13. No excuses for not playing passing football

    John Gow

    Beating East Stirlingshire 3-1 at Ibrox on Saturday to widen the gap in the league to 23 points (although Queen's Park have two games in hand) should have left the support leaving the stadium happy, or at least mildly content. Yet there was nothin...

  14. Scottish football should be ashamed after Gers verdict

    John Gow

    After all the fuss and acres of trees felled to supply the insatiable lust to see Rangers punished for actions they did not do, the Scottish Premier League Commission under Lord Nimmo-Smith clearly points out that Rangers did not cheat and did not ga...

  15. Rangers fans have plenty in reserve!

    John Gow
