Union Of Fans call for protest at Ibrox front door

Last updated : 15 January 2015 By UoF

"The Union of Fans is sickened by today’s news that the board is attempting to mortgage Ibrox and Murray Park to Sports Direct. Put simply, Mr James Easdale, Mr Sandy Easdale and Mr David Somers have lied to fans and shareholders. They have engineered a situation where they are handing the most prized assets of the club to Mike Ashley despite other, better funding offers once again being on the table. Derek Llambias and Barry Leach have been appointed by Mr Ashley to ensure he grabs the remaining assets of the club. Mr Ashley and his board stooges have shown a blatant disregard for the club and the fans. John Brown could not have been more accurate when he described them as “rats”.

We have been campaigning for 18 months to try to secure our stadium. It is not yet too late but the only people who can stop this now are the fans and we would ask them to do two things. First of all please come to the ground tomorrow night, 45 minutes before kick-off and stage a mass demonstration at the front door of our Ibrox home. We would ask fans not to enter the game but if they feel they have to, in order to support the team in an important game, then we would ask them to make their feelings known in the strongest possible fashion to the board.

Our strength is in numbers and acting together. It is time for the fans to make their voices heard in the strongest possible terms but we must do so together and we cannot waiver."
