Following the announcement of this terrible news, I am sure many of us would like to make some form of contribution to whatever initiative the club organise in this regard.
In my opinion, the club are getting so much right at the moment in terms of the young talent we are bringing in, the re-signing of Jamie Mackie and the excellent news from yesterday that we are doing the right thing by Ale Faurlin and giving him a new contract.
My optimism doesn't appear to be shared by some of the doom mongers. Or those not happy with the "Youth Team Coach" (They probably regard themselves as "Realists". )
So I thought I would kick start the fundraising with a fun bet we can all join in with. I will donate £100 on behalf of WATRB's if Rangers don't make the play-offs at least, provided that at least 20 other posters are prepared to donate the princely sum of £5 if we do. The very least I can do, bearing in mind the wonderful moments he gave those of us that are old enough to have witnessed them.
Just post your acceptance of the above terms on this thread. You don't even have to be a pessimist or realist to get involved, you are still very welcome to donate the £5 even if you think we are going to have a brilliant season. (Would be better if you stated your true opinion though.)
I do believe MYU is also willing to match me, so if at least 40 of you are in, we can guarantee a minimum of £200.
Let's see how much we can raise together for a good cause.
