    Scotty and Flanagan star

    Pleased to report Scotty was MoM and got 2 of the 6 goals Rangers scored against Bury in front of 41000 fans for Gerrrards first home game in charge. Fans think he’s brilliant, a game changer, real class ..

    Flanagan did well too.

    Bury fans and they filled the away end we’re in awe - when did they last play in front of 41k i think the team were too as they only got one corner. Rangers fans had a Lee Rigby flag on display - didn’t know he was a Bury man.

    41000 Gers fans for a friendly against Bury, the Gerrard Project has certainly kicked in.

    Sounds like Gerrard is a harder task master than Sean

    “I want to be as fit as possible and get into positions. I want to score as many as possible. We’re going through the hardest pre-season I’ve ever done. Talk is cheap and we’ll see next Thursday against Shkupi (in the Europa League) but we’re in a very good place.”

    Yes but hes playing not on the bench, near home on 20k a week,in Europe every year and 50k crowds at home games. Nice way to end a career with fair chances of medals too.

    Not sure Bury are much of a test though!

    Scott and Flanagan. Sound like an old Victorian vaudeville act!

    Aye BT. Didn't Liverpool use to have Flanagan and Allen?

    Mind you, we used to have a strike force of Heath-Robinson.

    You have just ruined my morning 1959-60! Bogitt and Scarper would have been a better duo.

    It's a good result; especially as Rangers and Bury are so closely matched.

    I consider this to be a real refection of the Scottish Prem this season.

    I’m on standby to take my grandsons to see Rangers on Thursday, though I’m not sure if the UEFA rules may stop me.

    Prior to the murder of lee Rigby there was no connection between him and Rangers. (He was a Man Utd fan). What started it off was a group of Celtic fans chanting "F*** Lee Rigby, he won’t be f****** drumming anymore” ahead of the friendly Dafabet Cup clash against Sunderland".

    Since that moment the Rangers fans have made it their mission to raise as much money as possible for the Lee Rigby Foundation by taking part in fund raising events. Once a year Rangers Old Boys play Portsmouth Old boys at my local ground (Portchester FC) followed by around 2000 Rangers fans completed with pipe and drums band. It is an epic day out with Lee Rigbys family in attendance.

    Didn’t know that CM. I have been to Ibrox a few times and never seen it and thought it was because he was from near Bury, as did some Bury fans. I see he was buried there.

    Rangers manage a last minute penalty to win 2-0 at home against Shkupi from Macedonia. Scotty managed 65 mins. Flanagan did well, but it was a real struggle. A full house watched. Shkupi have a 6000 seater stadium. 50k fans will want fair access to 1k tickets.

    Easy one that OC! Announce the hour of the day they go on sale, allow season ticket holders first dibs and when they are gone, they are gone!
