About the Author
David Edgar is the spokesperson of the Rangers Supporters Trust, the largest independent Rangers supporters group. He has supported Rangers for 30 years and has been the support's representative in the media for the last six. He decided to write the book because the outside world's perception of Rangers fans didn't fit with his experience of them. There is a lot of humour, passion and enjoyment involved in following the club, and he wanted that to be recorded.

They have cast us out, and banished us to the ranks of Scotland's "diddy teams", but we remain the biggest club in Scottish football and are winning games for fun. In fact, the other teams who showed their hatred for us, can only watch as we regain our strength, and one day we will return to our position as Scotland's number one, and will severely punish them for how badly they have treated us.
Look out Scotland, the Rangers are coming, and Scotland may not be big enough.
This book explores the blue side of the two and offers a great insight into what it's like to be a Rangers supporter in the modern age. The author is clearly very knowledgable and has had access to the club that ordinary fans won't have enjoyed, which perhaps makes his prose all the more authentic.
As a complete neutral, I still found this a witty, informative and an entertaining read.
