Rangers bus won't make it to warrior park. It's wheels are screwed and come to a halt.


Well the bus got to WP last round & they sure did the business.
It's the Oly bus getting to Ranger Land that you have to worry about this week.

58 you must be from the. North , First half belong to the GK second , yes City put away 2 nice goals and yes GK keeper made a great save but GK missed many chances . City deserved their point but don't tell us that they played all over the GK , and if they meet again GK will win , City had their best 11 GK had many players missing !!!!

yea.....ask the Knights coach what he though about the game?

Football lesson sat night at warriorless park! Rangers to beat oly this weekend!!!


They did it away, so got to be a chance at home.
Assuming they all turn up that is.
Port must have come out in blitzkrieg fashion against them or maybe they all nodded off on the bus?

In the end it's just an embarrassing day for GK knowing that half the SPL teams would beat city at full strength and that's including VL reserves
