Last night I tweeted out the following tweet
”Fantastic transfer window for the club & we can take things on going forward. Exciting times at Rangers, Ibrox getting the attention it deserves, investment on the horizon & under Mark Allens guidance, targets for next season are mouthwatering. Onwards & upwards for our club”
I have spoken a lot about this on our previous blogs and it is ok to be positive about our future. This is the most positive I’ve personally felt about Rangers in a long time.
We have spoken before about Ibrox getting the redevelopment it deserves to bring it back to where it belongs. We mentioned earlier in the month that the club have secured a £1 million pound contract to redevelop the roofs of the Sandy Jardine, Broomloan and Copland stand. There is redevelopment planned for the surrounding areas of Ibrox including the now publicised memorial garden. The club have massive plans for the stadium to meet our 150 year anniversary. Money is being invested and the ground is getting the attention it deserves.
The clubs summer targets include the likes of James McArthur and Scott Arfield. These are names already out in the public and I think it really shows the level of player we are looking at. Rangers have put down a tremendous marker this January with some sensational business, the next level up is where Mark Allen and the board are willing to take us too.
I can’t help but be excited by this and some other speculation, the calibre of players mentioned is mouthwatering and I truly believe capable of taking that next step. We are looking at EPL standard and this is only a good thing. We might not get the McArthurs of this world, but to set the standards this high is certainly a good thing.
Mark Allen has a vision for our club – young, hungry, talented footballers who want to play for Rangers. Evident by our January dealings, which secured some fabulous business, we are rightly excited by things going forward.
The club are moving towards a fresh new share issue, where new investment will come in and the soft loans to the directors turned into equity going forward. This will also potentially bring new investment from outwith the club currently, Alistair Johnstone’s return to the club and his stature in business is the reason he returned to the boardroom. Rangers are ready to take the next step and really push on. Despite what others will try and spin, Rangers were in a position to turn down a £8m bid for Alfredo Morelos, a bid which would have seen £8m directly into our bank account.
Hardly a sign of a club in crisis or a club facing pending financial doom.
We can be positive and we absolutely can be happy about the direction we are heading in. Rangers is an institution which deserves to be at the top, Scotland finest football club and the worlds most successful, we are on our way back.
Looking forward to being back at Ibrox this Saturday for another big game.
As ever Ignore the nonsense, the Irrelevant and the noise. This is our football club 🔴⚪️🔵
I dedicate this blog and our site to my Mum who I lost last week. She was my rock and very supportive of my writing. She was only 57 and passed after a short battle with cancer. She was as thrilled as I am that it was getting so much support from you all. She helped get me on the Fort William Rangers supporters bus for my first games and would save up to help me get to our games, my first steps to going regularly as I do now. Mum I will keep trying my best x
