Why have sevco got "thank you" on their tops? Who are they thanking or did Jimmy Bell  just run out of space when stitching them?

One things for sure. It ain't a fucking quote from Sunshine on Leith.

If so then mea culpa. 

But I was commenting on the Iain Ferguson comment, who must have played for Rangers about 83 or 84, even earlier than Ian and the rest. 

Jinky67 mentioned Iain Ferguson who was a much travelled striker that had a 2 year bit-part stint at Rangers in the early 80’s. Not known for being a hatchet man, plus everyone knows strikers can’t tackle anyway. 

If he meant Ian Ferguson the midfielder from the late 80s and 90’s, he was never one to shirk a tackle but certainly wasn’t one for going around kicking everything or trying to break legs.

Leverkusen a cut above but what a European campaign it’s been, which started nearly 400 days ago.

Punched above our weight and delivered some excellent results.

Scotland will have 2 champions league teams from next season too.

Yes that's exactly what I said earlier on. He was meaning Ian.

I never said we have been successful, I said we have improved.
I feel we are heading in the right direction, but it's going to be very difficult to compete with Celtic in the short term due to various factors.
Is one of the various factors having worse players in pretty much every position bar, maybe, goalkeeper?

Cause that would seem the only factor tbh. Unless Celtic appoint a simpleton as manager, which Lennon isn't, then I don't see how Rangers beat Celtic in any meaningful form. You might beat them in a one off game but you won't out perform them over a season.

Well that’s a simple way to look at it, yes. The disparity in resources between the two teams will mean Celtic will always be able to attract (and retain) higher quality players.

Maybe you could close the gap through some kind of "Creative Accounting" scheme?

Whichever one it was that played in the 90’s, midfielder, awfully cheery guy. Always remember him being in everyone’s face in a Scott Brownesque sort of way the only difference being Scott Brown can play football 😉

Iain was the one they signed from Dundee. A kinda David van Day look-a-like and play-a-like. He later was a Scottish Cup runner-up for Dundee United (see below) and a Scottish Cup winner with Motherwell.

Ian Ferguson scored the winning goal in the 1987 SC  final in which Iain Ferguson played for DU.

Just to confuse things further there was another Ian Ferguson who bummed about with lower league sides such as Hearts, Raith and Ayr.
