Jim Spence slams the Ibrox mentality

Jim Spence has slammed the We Are The People attitude from Sevco.

After six weeks of undermining a rival club rejection from Derek McInnes has hurt the Ibrox club badly as their angry statement reflected.

Delusions of competing with and overhauling Celtic are being served up to the fans while the reality on the park is slugging it out with Hibs and Aberdeen for second spot.

While all of the clubs in the top half of the Premiership have their finances under control Sevco limp on thanks to soft loans that allow directors to influence transfer policy.

Spence walked away from BBC Scotland and the Continuation Lie a few years ago and is clearly taking a shot at Jim Traynor with a pointed opinion piece in The Courier.

Looking at the failed attempt to bring in McInnes as manager he states: “Their traditional war cry ‘We are the people’, by definition means the rest of us aren’t the chosen ones.

Their belief that snapping their fingers would see Aberdeen’s resolve to keep their manager collapse, and McInnes rush to sign on at Ibrox, misjudged the mood of both.

It also revealed Rangers’ lack of grasp of their dramatically changed circumstances in recent times.

McInnes currently manages a financially astute club with a supportive chairman, and with a fan base which, while demanding, isn’t disengaged from reality. A failure to be matching Celtic after six months will not get him the sack as it may well have done in Govan.

Rangers’ aim in life is to be better than Celtic. In the current circumstances with the Parkhead outfit’s financial enormous lead over them, they are light years away from getting close.

A new reality is dawning for the light blues. Their place in Scottish football seems set to be perennially second best to their old East End rivals, who now occupy a different and more exclusive football firmament, with practically guaranteed Champions League entry and the enviable wealth that accompanies it.”

Sevco face Ross County today with Graeme Murty staying in charge for the remainder of the year.
