Stranraer captain.

There was some talk of some sort of recognition of him today, but not heard any more about if for last few weeks. Anyone know if anything is planned?

Without sounding harsh, why would there be recognition?

He was doing his job and a fantastic job it is.

I would think a simple banner saying thank you frank from the rangers support would be more fitting and meaningful than anything official

Does this extend to the armed forces?

Nothing even remotely similar. Are you comparing what the armed forces do to the Clutha incident?

big Frank is a former captain of Arthurlie JFC. And one of the nicest guys you could meet. Not one who courts the limelight, though. Hope he plays great in Rangers 21st successive victory!

I don't think he would want any recognition like most (not all) fires just doing their job

Is he a bear? Not that it matters, just seen a few people write on twitter he's living out his dream.

But the armed forces do so knowing "it is just a job" right?

Well said.

Takes a lot of bravery to go into a building that is on fire and risk your life in order to save another.

Do we have to bring the armed forces into every thread? The bloke deserves a warm reception.

So by your reckoning if a copper gets shot in the course of doing his ir her duty thats different to a soldier getting shot doing his duty.

Having had family who have served in the fire brigade they would say the same that this is part of their job. They do not expect recognition etc.

My uncle received a bravery award and refused to get the medal along with four other colleagues as this is their job.

Ditch this thread admin, it is an embarassment with some of these comments. As an ex servicemen to see clowns arguing who should get recognition is absolutely shameless and stupid. The OP asked a simple question and all the moral philosophers appear.
The owners of some of these comment would have been decked 2 mins after tot time, and I haven't even had a wet yet.

Never said I was. I was asking a question and your posts since have clearly answered it.

Ditch this thread admin,

Couldn't agree more Slim Jim. For God's sake why are we arguing about this at all?

Some of you need to get a life.

I think our club have done more than their fair share for the armed forces over the years.

Risking your life for others is risking your life for others, it's not a competition.

Can I just change the direction of the thread and say that the boy had a very good game today. He talked his defence through the whole game and kept them together.

He is a Rangers man to answer someone asking it earlier

Frank is a great guy and wouldn't have wanted the recognition that has came his way. He had a great game today I thought and good luck to him.

Spot on with this mate. The big man has been a bit embarrassed about the attention he has received on the back of this. As you rightly say he is a great guy and a very good player.

All the best to him and Stranraer for the rest of the season.

Met him in the Quayside last night. Due to being p*ished as a fart I don't remember what was said.:D Nice big lad who was a few years below me at school. He is good friends with the red/black scarf founder.
