View Full Version : A poem on the last year supporting Rangers

It’s a year to the day, when it seemed like Rangers, were going to drift away.
There we stood, in work and in pubs. No more they said, of the football club we love.
One hundred and forty years, our glorious past, surely the 54th title won’t be our last?
Run to the ground, by inconsiderate fools, this is our club, and they’d broken the rules.

The fans tried to gather, together as one. But the future looked bleak, all Whyte done was run.
‘We don’t do walking away’, was the rallying cry. It was from Ally McCoist, hes Gers til he dies.
The players took cuts, we’ll be forever grateful. And continued to play, for the light blues faithful.
A day in late March, they stood 10ft tall, we won the derby at Ibrox, the fans had a ball.

The season was over, the fans were confused. We’d took punches and kicks, we were battered and bruised.
The Blue knights couldn’t save us, for some all hope was lost, but a man called Green, he fought for the cause.
Imposters left the club, and betrayed the fans. They were our heroes for years; we were shocked to a man.
Some players stayed, and were loyal to the shirt. They became cult heroes, unlike the backstabbing dirt.
Super Lee McCulloch, hes a bear through and through. Alexander, Wallace, Little, and the youth players too.

We were ready to fight back, had a squad full of wains. But we needed the license, to start winning games.
Our corrupt football authorities, were bleeding us dry. They all worked together, and hoped Rangers would die.
But Ally and Green, in our corner they fought. They made sure we had a team to watch, and some players could be bought.
In division 3, is where Rangers would play. It didn’t matter to us, we’d be there night and day.

Its been a tough year for bears, the whole world over. At times hard to believe, it wasn’t Roy of the Rovers.
We’ve been all over the country, in numbers some can only dream. We’ll travel anywhere, to see our glorious team.
Looking back over the year, its bean quite surreal. Thank god we have a football club, and Green sealed the deal.
At times hard to take, but we’re on our way back. We are Rangers Football Club, courage and pride we do not lack.
So this February bears, go out and support your team. Be forever grateful, of the four lads who had a dream.

Rangers then, Rangers now, Rangers forever.

Really touched me. I have no more years to shed after the last year but I definitely am close.

How close we came to having no club...:(

Share it as much as you want lads.

Normally I like a wee rallying cry on Facebook and the likes but there was so much that happened that I felt I'd try a poem. Only took 20/25 minutes to write. The english could be better but as some have said I think it captures the emotions. Didnt want to mention the backstabbing pricks who left but felt I had to as that was one of the most hurtful things that happened for me ;)
