Product Description

From the Publisher

Esplin and Walker's first book on the club, 'It's Rangers for Me?', published in 2007, was one of the most high profile and controversial of the year. Featured on BBC Television's 'Newsnight' and serialised in 'The Times' it made the front pages of many Scottish newspapers. Their new book 'Rangers: Triumphs, Troubles, Traditions', is no less hard hitting. Divided into the four parts the first looks in detail at what really happened before, during and after the 2008 UEFA Cup final in Manchester. Written by academics, journalists and representatives from fan organisations it highlights how strategic errors were responsible for many of the problems that day, despite what the often inaccurate media reporting led us to believe. The second section looks at the recent controversies surrounding the club, including the furore over the 'Famine Song'. The third section considers the experiences of Rangers fans at home and abroad, including that of the most unlikely RSC of all: the Dublin Loyal. Finally, there is a section on Rangers legends, men like Alex Totten, Davie White, Camppbell Ogilvie and Craig Paterson. This section also has the most detailed account yet written on Rangers great Sam English, whose life and career were so cruelly affected by the tragic, and completely accidental, death of Celtic goalkeeper John Thomson during a fateful Old Firm match. All Rangers fans will be fascinated by the Sam English piece, which contains much new material.

4.0 out of 5 stars Worth Reading 23 May 2010
A really enjoyable book, broken into four sections. I bought it particularly for the first and second sections - firstly on the misinformation surrounding the 'trouble' at the UEFA cup final of 2008 and was pleased to read a much more balanced account of the whole event, secondly about the unfair media attention meted out to the Rangers support for their choice of songs and chants. Again I found this to be more balanced than I'm used to from the scottish media. I particularly like the third area - personal stories of what Rangers mean to people - be they supporters, home and abroad or even an opposing fan. Finally some legends tell us their stories and a full history is given of Sam English, whose life was tarnished by a tragic onfield accident. I just wish non Rangers supporters could be made to read it too and get a more balanced view.
