Walters Statement It is with the greatest of regret that I have to announce to Rangers supporters that I have decided to step down as Chairman of Rangers Football Club. It is, I am convinced the correct thing to do under the circumstances.Unfortunately, recent events have led me to the conclusion that the only option left open is for me to submit my resignation and to leave the Board of Directors with immediate effect.Working with a Board which could rarely find consensus and agreement has created a highly-dysfunctional environment which has not been good for the Club. On top of that, there has been recent further disruption which again has rendered the Board less effective and efficient than it ought to have been.It is clear that Boardroom change is required and I would urge Rangers fans to get fully behind the resolutions which last week were presented to the Board and shareholders.Also, I would like to remind the Directors that when a General Meeting was requisitioned earlier in the year I, as Chairman, was urged by everyone on the Board to do everything in my power to avoid such a meeting. At that time, I worked very hard to achieve that and now I am urging the Directors to do exactly the same this time and if that means Boardroom changes then so be it.In fact I am now imploring everyone to back these proposed changes so that much-needed stability and a level of integrity can be restored to the Ibrox Boardroom.However, so far as the chief executive and manager are concerned, let me say this: Craig Mather, as I have said before is doing a good job. It is unfortunate that this has happened but when change does come I hope he'll be allowed to continue the job he has started.As for Alistair McCoist, it is important that we all appreciate that no other Rangers manager has had to work with poorer or more trying circumstances. It is my fervent hope that when the dust settles and Rangers have a clearer path and future he is given the chance to manage under conditions similar to those which were afforded his predecessors.Last but most certainly not least, I must turn to Rangers supporters. They have suffered agonies and tortures over the last two years but they can be proud of their contribution. They did not waver in their support of their Club and as far as I am concerned they have been absolutely the one outstanding feature of this Club.Indeed, they are a reminder to those in the Boardroom that Directors have the massive and ultimate responsibility of serving, protecting and nourishing this Club for the benefit of the fans and not an individual or any associates. Rangers fans are a credit to their Club and they really do deserve so much better.As a manager I had to make many difficult decisions but none was tougher than the one I have just made. Stepping away from this Club is heart breaking but I will always be grateful for the support Rangers fans have given me down through the years.I will never forget and more than anything else I wish them the Club they truly deserve.

In the introduction to his wonderful book, “The Official Rangers Hall of Fame”, Lindsay Herron proudly tells the reader that, “more than 800 players have pulled on the Light Blue jersey” since the club was founded in 1872. He quickly goes on to advise the reader that, “There are, however, a number of players from this group who stand head and shoulders above the rest; men who have shaped the destiny of the club and brought glory and fame to Ibrox through their efforts” The Hall of Fame is resplendent with the ‘jewels’ that have sparkled for our great club since the Founding Fathers first had their vision of a great Glasgow team – a vision that quickly became the ‘Famous Glasgow Rangers’ and the institution, and worldwide phenomenon, it is today. The select group of players honoured in the Rangers Hall of Fame are lionized, and forever immortalised, in Lindsay Herron’s great book, and I’ve no doubt that most Rangers fans – young and old alike – could name a fair few of them. From Peter and Moses McNeil, two of our most revered Founding Fathers, to Rangers legends such as former captain and Scotland stalwart, John Greig, the mesmeric Davy Cooper and former scoring sensation and current Rangers manager Ally McCoist. There are currently 90 legends in the Rangers Hall of Fame, and the simple objective of this story is to persuade you that there should be 91; and that number 91 should be former striker, and prolific goal scorer, Jim Forrest. Now, let me say at the outset that Jim Forrest’s goal scoring achievement speaks for itself, and he is an outstanding candidate for the Rangers Hall of Fame. But I must confess that I was totally ‘won over’ and convinced to make this case, by the persuasive and enthusiastic presenters of Rangerschat, Ian and Fox, who argued fervently that Jim Forrest’s contribution to Rangers Football Club between 1962 and 1967 should be recognized and rewarded with a place in the Rangers Hall of Fame. Jim Forrest, a Glasgow lad born and bred, was brought to Rangers as a schoolboy, at a time when the successful team of the early 1960s was breaking up. He made his debut for Rangers on 17 November 1962 in a 4 - 0 thrashing of Falkirk and, thereafter, regularly wore the famous number 9 shirt for Rangers, ultimately displacing Jimmy Millar (1955 – 1967) who was himself a prolific goal scorer. Jimmy Millar’s partnership with Ralph Brand remains one of the most potent Rangers striking partnerships of all time; so trying to emulate the famous Millar and Brand partnership was never going to be an easy task for any newcomer, and it was clear that Jim Forrest had a massive task on his hands. However, he quickly established himself as a deadly and prolific goal scorer, netting a total of 145 goals in his 163 games for Rangers, as he established a potent striking partnership with George McLean. He scored 57 goals in the 1964-65 season, just 2 goals short of the record for most goals scored in a season in British football, and he still holds the record for the highest number of goals scored for Rangers in a League Cup match, having scored 5 in the 7-1 thrashing of Hamilton on 30 October 1965. Jim Forrest’s goals-to-game ratio is, quite simply, sensational, and is not far off a goal a game at 0.89. That’s a goal-to-game ratio that any player, any team and any manager in the modern era would die for! Contrast Forrest’s goal scoring ratio with Rangers hero, and current boss, Ally McCoist whose goal per game ratio is 0.61, and Jim Forrest’s goal scoring exploits are placed in a very impressive perspective indeed. Even when compared with his contemporaries, and with later Rangers legends, Forrest’s strike rate is far superior. Rangers Striker Years at Rangers Games Played Goals Scored Goals- To-Game Ratio Billy Simpson 1950 – 1959 239 163 0.68 Ralph Brand 1954 – 1965 317 206 0.65 Jimmy Millar 1955 – 1967 317 162 0.51 Davy Wilson 1956 – 1967 373 157 0.42 Derek Johnston 1970 – 1983 546 210 0.38 Ally McCoist 1983 – 1998 581 355 0.61 Mark Hately 1990 – 1995/97 222 115 0.52 In addition to his goal scoring prowess, Jim Forrest won 5 international caps for Scotland, also winning the Scottish Division 1 title twice (1962/63 and 1963/64), the Scottish League Cup twice (1963/64 and 1964/65) and the Scottish Cup in 1965/66. But unfortunately for Jim Forrest, a long an illustrious career at Ibrox was not to be, and his spell at the club was brought to an inglorious and untimely end when Rangers were unceremoniously dumped out of the Scottish Cup by lowly Berwick Rangers in January 1967. The entire country was shocked by that unbelievable result and, as a 14 year old at the time, I vividly recall watching the very brief highlights of the game (in black and white), and wondering how on earth the Mighty Rangers could be knocked out of the Cup by the minnows of Berwick? To say I was devastated would be a gross understatement. At that time, the world, quite literally, had come to an end for this 14 year old Rangers fan! The Rangers manager, Scot Symon, described the defeat as “the worst result in the club’s history” and, under significant pressure from the Rangers board, immediately dropped Jim Forrest and George McLean, his two main strikers in the Berwick game, and transferred them to other clubs. Forrest and McLean were, undoubtedly, made the scapegoats for the worst Cup exit in Rangers’ history, and young Forrest was particularly distraught by a decision that was, not only, wrong, but one that almost everyone believed to be unreasonable and totally unfair. However, Symon’s decision to ‘sack’ Forrest and McLean came back to haunt him just a few months later when Rangers were beaten by Bayern Munich in the final of the European Cup Winners Cup on 31 May 1967. Having got rid of the club’s two top strikers in February, Rangers were forced to play Roger Hynd, a centre-half, at centre-forward against a powerful Bayern side that included the great Franz Beckenbauer. Jim Forrest was the proverbial ‘sacrificial lamb’. Treated abominably, in circumstances where ‘heads’ were required to roll in atonement for the ‘Berwick ‘disaster’, his Rangers career was blighted and prematurely ended. Yet in the time he was with the club, his goal scoring exploits became the stuff of legend. Who knows what further heights he might have scaled had he remained at Rangers. Perhaps he would already be one of the ‘chosen few’ in the Rangers Hall of Fame? The fact that he isn’t is an injustice that now requires to be remedied. Perhaps now, however belatedly, the club will consider the immense contribution made by Jim Forrest. As the stats above testify, he was a goal scorer ‘par excellence’ His service to the club and the number of games he played would have been significantly greater but for the fateful decision of manager Scott Symon. But, perhaps, in 2013, that injustice can be balanced by the honours he won at Rangers, his international appearances for Scotland and his exceptional ability as a prolific goal scorer. Now is the time for Jim Forrest to become the Rangers Hall of Fame player number 91.

Created on 01 May 2013 Last Updated on 01 May 2013 James Donaldson Following the ridiculous news that the organisers of Gibson Street Gala had refused The Founders Trail from opening their stall again this year, another suspicious refusal has come to light.In case you missed it last week, the Gibson Street Gala organisers branded The Founders Trail as “too controversial”. The story made its way from RangersMedia, to all mainstream supporters’ discussion forums, and even in to the Evening Times.Last year The Founders Trail raised money for both Erskine and Yorkhill Childrens Hospital through their Gibson Street stall, and despite the organisers being told that these charities would be the ones missing out, the suspicious refusal was upheld.True to form, Rangers supporters from all over the world raised an incredible £1200 (and counting) in the immediate 48 hours after The Founders Trail had told their story, meaning the charities would not miss out – but no thanks to Gibson Street Gala!Unfortunately, yet more charities have missed out due to the suspicious refusal of a Rangers supporters’ event.The Arthur Numan Loyal RSC, based in Milngavie, have up until this year held their annual end-of-season party at Milngavie Town Hall. Milngavie Town Hall is of course operated by East Dunbartonshire Council; the same East Dunbartonshire Council whom in March, were exposed by the Kirkintilloch Herald for financially driven plans to close and merge primary schools, building new ones, to save £300,000 per primary school, despite having publicly stated that the controversial plans were not just a desperate effort to balance the books – but we’ll come back to that later.Milngavie Town Hall has been the venue for this successful and well attended end-of-season bash for an impressive fifteen years! Each year, the £50(ish) deposit has been paid and the venue booked around September, as each Scottish football season is in its infancy.With many a Rangers legend usually in attendance (Richard Gough had already been lined up this year ) the event usually attracts 250 people. Over the course of those fifteen years thousands of pounds have been donated to numerous charities – such as Erskine, the Davie Cooper Centre and the Former Players’ Benevolent Fund.In September 2012 this was no different, with Arthur Numan Loyal’s Iain Sinclair booking the venue, as normal, without any issue.Fast-forward five months, to February 2013, and Iain is contacted by East Dunbartonshire Council to inform him that the event could no longer take place at Milngavie Town Hall! This regular, successful and friendly event was all of a sudden deemed as “problematic” by East Dunbartonshire Council?!As you can imagine, this came as a complete surprise to Iain.“On February 12th I received a surprise email from the council, asking all sorts of questions about the event that had never been asked before. Bear in mind we’ve never received any complaints before, and definitely not from last year, so I was really surprised to hear from them so long after we had booked and paid our deposit.“After a few emails back and forth I was told that we could no longer use the Town Hall as the council were now declaring this event as problematic! I couldn’t believe it.“Funnily enough, after we had been told about this and tried to find out why, a mysterious complaint appeared out of thin air.“I immediately requested a sit-down meeting with the decision makers and was told a meeting would be arranged – but we’re still waiting for that meeting.“It took five weeks for them to pay back our deposit and there wasn’t any offer of compensation for Richard Gough’s flights, which they knew had already been paid for.”Rangers legend Colin Jackson has been in attendance numerous times over the years – including last year – and could not believe that the East Dunbartonshire Council had come to this very late and ridiculous decision.“I’ve been there the past few years now and I have to say it’s a very well run event. Everyone has a good time, and there’s never once been even the slightest murmur of any trouble.“The Milngavie Police Station is only a stone’s throw away and I’ve never seen them having to interrupt proceedings, or even parked outside keeping an eye on things.“Something doesn’t add up.”Surely a cash-strapped council – and one which is looking down every possible avenue to reduce debt, including the controversial closure and merging of numerous primary schools – should not be turning away £350 of easy money?Is it bias?Is it bigotry?I wouldn’t like to say.It might not be mega-bucks involved, but the simple fact is that East Dunbartonshire Council have made a ridiculous decision and one which hurts the aforementioned charities the most.Luckily for Arthur Numan Loyal, The Louden Tavern stepped in to host the event (last Friday, April 26th), but there was only room for around 100 people, rather than the usual 250-strong attendance – so at least some monies could be raised, although nowhere near as much.How many more suspicious, and quite blatantly anti-Rangers, ‘refusals’ do these excellent charities have to suffer from?I for one, sincerely hope there are no more.If you, or your Rangers-related organisation, have been on the receiving end of a similar suspicious ‘refusal’ by any authority, or organisers, please contact james.donaldson@rangersmedia.co.uk with all the relevant information.
