Rangers fans not happy as podcast peddles myth over Gers' history

Rangers fans have responded angrily to claims made in a podcast by The Atletic over the club’s history – rejecting suggestions there was any sort of ‘debate’ over the matter following the financial meltdown of 2012.

In the miniseries covering the ‘Fall and Rise of Rangers’, comments including the laughable claim that ‘the arguments over whether the club ceased to exist continue to rage’ and the sly line ofa team called Rangers found themselves in the 4th division’ seems to pander to a particular section of the wider Scottish football audience.

Despite the Court of Session, UK Supreme Court, FIFA, UEFA, Scottish FA, SPFL and Advertising Standards Agency all confirming that the club playing at Ibrox are the same one that was playing there pre-2012, there are still some who insist ‘rainjurs died’.


With fans tuning in hoping for an entertaining listen, it didn’t take long for them to be left disappointed as the discredited myths were rolled out in quick succession.

That led to some fans to take to Twitter and blast the podcast for their ‘revisionist’ view – with one calling it ‘pure sevcopath porn’.

Here are some of the comments from Rangers fans on Twitter:
