Book Description

12 Jun 2013
When the Scottish Football League chairmen voted on the future of Rangers Newco in July 2012, most fans didn't really expect that they would be dumped into Division Three. Many thought that hard-headed commercial realities would mean demotion to the First Division at worst. But when the decision was announced, the club had no option but to start a new football journey in the bottom tier of Scottish football. In Rangers FC - We Don't Do Walking Away, Lisa Gray captures the humour, the emotion and, of course, the football as the club sets out for an incredible season, visiting pastures new at Peterhead, Annan and Berwick amongst others. This is the inside story of both the team and the supporters as they adjusted to life in the Third Division - new players, new opposition and, of course, new pies. It has been an extraordinary season and this colourful account is a lasting memento of a unique season which will never be repeated.

Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Books detailing one club's season are bound to appeal first and foremost to that team's supporters. It is rare to secure a wider readership, but this book deserves to. Here is a story that will last, the definitive account of Rangers' strangest season, finding themselves in the Third Division and wondering what the hell to do about it.
Several books have already appeared on the financial problems, many self-inflicted, that got Rangers demoted. Lisa Gray includes all the relevant off-field details along the way, but her well-crafted book is, rightly, about the football consequences. This was an unimaginable set of fixtures for a club of Rangers' size and Gray never loses sight of just how weird it all was to be watching.
Where this book excels is in depicting the colour and humour that many of Rangers' games generated. The quirky, cramped settings for matches that should have been one-sided every time, but, surprisingly, often weren't. It is hardly spoiling the ending to reveal Rangers won the title, but they made remarkably hard work of it with some laboured performances. If the players sometimes failed them, though, the supporters, in terms of their numbers, did not. Better this team than none at all.
No modern huge football club, which Rangers remain for all their drop in league status, will allow writers genuine 'inside' access, but Gray's way around this is to make this book about more than just the Ibrox outfit. Supporters of the teams Rangers played will find a decent amount of coverage of their own sides here. There are jokes aplenty, but it is to Gray's credit that none of them are at the expense of the teams Rangers played or the places they went.
This is a book that could well last the test of time.

5.0 out of 5 stars proper review 20 Jun 2013
to the two obsessed septic fans who have written the first reviews i can only ask is the only purpose you have in life to get up in the afternoon and spend the rest of your day searching the internet for any mention of the word RANGERS if you only loved your club as much as you obsess about ours i would not need to spend my days at work (work look it up in a dictionary) listening to advert after advert of septic trying to sell season books for the much anticipated 2013/14 spl season

5.0 out of 5 stars Well Written 1 July 2013
I found the book to be well researched and well written, the author has avoided providing inaccurate statistical information.
She also does not shirk away from telling it as it is, cricising our supporters when necessary.
I hope that she will write again next season when hopefully we will have taken the next step on on our journey.

5.0 out of 5 stars "When Harry met Ally" and other stories 26 Jun 2013
Highly entertaining romp through the lowest of Scotland's senior leagues.
As the Press Association's Chief Scottish Football Writer, Gray covers all the big stories about Rangers.
Here, though, she also presents - in all it's glory - the off-field colour that accompanied the reams of serious stuff about Messrs Green and Whyte.
Learn how Ally McCoist was kidnapped by Annan's Bluenosed chairman Henry McClelland enroute to delivering his team talk and instead pressganged into doing an impromptu turn in the bar.
How a Highland bakery made their "pie sales go bananas" by shrewdly wrapping big game tickets inside the covers of their specially wrapped Scotch pies.
And how Japanese journalist/fan Daisuke Nakajima himself became the story in his homeland through travelling from 6,000 miles to see a game that was called off because the home club sold far more tickets than their ground could hold, "Football games in Japan have never been called off for such a ridiculous reason!"
The author doesn't rack up quite as many miles herself but from Forres to Forthbank she is never less than engaging company.

4.0 out of 5 stars How many leagues under the SPL? 26 Jun 2013
What links Rangers' first-ever game in the fourth tier of Scottish football and classic science fiction writer Jules Verne?
As well as a colourful account of the Gers' 2012-13 season, Lisa Gray provides the answer in We Don't Do Walking Away.
Picking up from the Ibrox club's demotion from the SPL, Lisa charts the journey from only having a handful of players as the season approached to lifting the title trophy in May.
Her position as chief football writer and Rangers correspondent for the Scottish Press Association gave her the ideal position to observe what was always going to be a unique year in the history of the club.
I found myself drawn into the book very quickly - quite aside from the interesting subject matter, the good flow and pace of the writing made it very easy to read and, as a result, hard to put down.
Lisa's journalistic background shows in the concise way she presents the needful information but, given a little freedom to write, she vividly portrays the colour and character present over the season, especially the Gers' visits to Third Division grounds.
Fans of the club seem to have enjoyed their visits to new towns and stadiums, and Lisa certainly did, even if she didn't think she'd like going to Forres after the draw was made!
Her enthusiasm for and knowledge of her subject shine through in a book that would be a great memento for any Rangers fan of an extraordinary year.
