In response to Scott McMahon (M Star January 18), Rangers may well be a fourth-tier club but they have one of the highest attendances ever recorded at a fourth-tier league match.
In terms of league attendances this season, they are the fifth-biggest club in Britain and are surpassed only by Manchester City, Manchester United, Arsenal and Newcastle.
The magnificent support shown, as well as the peculiarity in one of the most recognisable names in world football playing teams from places that the rest of the world has probably never heard of, is a massive story.
There is no bias here as has been implied.
I am a season ticket holder at Ibrox and I am a socialist who supports both independence and a British/Scottish republic, depending on the vote in 2014. I know some folks like to perpetuate the myth that all Rangers fans lean one way, but the fact is that we don't.
As a Rangers fan, it is refreshing to read articles without such emotive language and factual inaccuracies such as "new club."
To digress, when a company is liquidated, its assets are sold to the highest bidder.
In this case the main asset of Rangers Football Club PLC was Rangers Football Club, which was bought by Charles Green's consortium - so the club hasn't changed, merely the parent company.
Slazenger is still Slazenger despite being owned by Sports Direct and Audi is still Audi, despite being owned by Volkswagen.
If you stop "reading and promoting [the] newspaper to friends" based on the coverage of a football club, then I wonder how much you really like the paper and your interest in socialist causes.
Put simply, sport is small fish, not forgetting that no-one forces you to read the articles.
Anyway, the Morning Star will survive, thrive and continue to promote socialist causes whether you support it or not.
