    Memory Lane Ernie Watkins

    Now I admit I'm no authority on SUFC but even this passed me by. Ernie Watkins' first 2 games in 1925 produced 5 goals (!) 4 games goal-less then 6 in 4 games. Even so, 11 in 10 games. Then came a "breach of club rules" in December 1925 and he was suspended along with another player...

    Rangers hold the key to future Scottish European exploits

    Kaunas is a word that reminds Rangers of a bad time, a one time lacklustre performance in Europe against FBK Kaunas of Lithuania in the Second Qualifying round in the 2009/10 UEFA Cup season.

    Question Anyone know their contract law?

    I'm very sceptical when I get told "inside information" as 90% of the time its not true. In this case I heard it from someone I know has connections with the club so I think it is worthy of posting here. It seems that several of the players agents may be seeking legal advice as they believe the...
