  1. Rangers Match Thread 2017/18

    Wasn't able to watch Sunday's game but listened to first half on the radio. Sounded dire. Can't see Murty staying beyond the end of the season and it will be interesting to see who comes in. We now, also, have the spat between Murty and Rangers' two most experienced players, Miller and Wallace. With Rangers it seems one step forward and two steps back. Oh for a Jock Wallace type figure back at Ibrox.
  2. DT's reaction. Must have been a shock to him as he is in hospital.

    I think the 5-1 game was the last of the season. Durie made his debut for us as did John McNaught.

  5. http://www.bbc.co.uk/sport/football/43791511 A penalty was awarded after players had already left the pitch for half-time in Mainz's Bundesliga win over relegation rivals Freiburg on Monday. Referee Guido Winkmann called both sides back from the dressing room after consulting the video assistant referee (VAR) system and penalising Freiburg for handball. Mainz midfielder Pablo de Blasis scored the penalty to put the hosts 1-0 up. The second half was delayed by fans throwing toilet paper onto the pitch. It was not related to the penalty decision but instead a protest against Bundesliga fixtures being played on Monday nights. De Blasis scored a second on 78 minutes to secure victory, taking Mainz above Freiburg on goal difference and eight points clear of automatic relegation, while putting the visitors into the relegation play-off spot in 16th. Mainz initially had the penalty appeal turned down after right-back Daniel Brosinski's cross deflected off Freiburg centre-back Marc-Oliver Kempf's hand and was saved by keeper Alexander Schwolow. As the players departed the pitch, Winkmann was told to consult VAR and ran over to the other side of the pitch to watch the replay on a monitor. Winkmann overturned the decision and awarded the hosts a penalty before having to recall the entire Freiburg side and the handful of Mainz players who had left the pitch. Following a delay of over six minutes De Blasis scored the penalty in the bottom left corner and Winkmann blew again for half-time, during which the unfortunate Kempf was substituted. De Blasis added a lucky second as his shot rolled over the line after hitting the inside of the post, with Schwolow out of his goal having passed the ball straight to Mainz midfielder Robin Quaison. The second half was delayed by fans throwing toilet roll on the pitch in protest against Monday night games Analysis European football writer Andy Brassell on BBC Radio 5 live Potentially one of the most vital goals in the fight at the bottom, but a new low for VAR. The ref maybe shouldn't have sent them off as quickly, it depends on how quickly VAR contacted him. The problem is not the technology, it is the process. I can't understand why referees are involved in the decision-making process at all, if it is to be used for clear and obvious errors, surely the VAR has to tell the referee what the decision is. In this case you've got a couple thousand fans off to the bar and they come back thinking it is 0-0. I still think the penalty is debatable.

    What a night that was. Stood near the White Wall that night. The atmosphere was a bit special!

    Agree, that team was brilliant. Doddie and McLean in the midfield, a great defence (Jardine has to be one of the best full-backs of the last fifty years) and the two Dereks upfront. WATP.

    Will settle for a scrappy 1-0 win on Sunday. Spoke to one of my cousins the other night and he is going to the game on Sunday. We had a chat about Ray Wilkins and that brilliant goal he scored in 1988. Tom Forsyth celebrating after the winning goal in the 1973 Scottish Cup Final

After the highly successful introduction to rail seating at Celtic Park, as well as numerous Bundesliga clubs, many football fans feel that laws preventing standing areas should be relaxed.
