Don't Boycott The Gers

By Bill McMurdo | CRO Editor-at-large

I see some Rangers fans already talking about not renewing their season tickets for next season, should the Frankenstein leagues proposed by the SPL become reality.

The reasoning of such fans is perfectly understandable - they feel they have forked out their hard-earned for season tickets this year only to be consigned to a Groundhog Day season next time round.

However, please consider this if you are that frustrated - such a reaction is exactly what the haters want from you.

They want you to boycott your own team and to stifle the Rangers Pound from benefitting Rangers FC.

I am sure I speak for everyone here at CRO when I say this:-

Don't hurt The Rangers by taking the haters' bait.

That's what they want you to do.

Yes, they are baiting us and it has to be said they are very good at it.

So good, in fact, they could easily lay claim to being master baiters of the first order.

Boycott away, if you must.

Just not The Gers.

You know it makes sense.
