READY FOR GLORY- The Daily Record Ibrox fanzine that backfired spectacularly

Back in the giddy days of July with the Micky Beale Revolution in full flow the team at the Daily Record couldn’t hold back their excitement.

As well as round the clock updates on their website they opted to produce a special print edition to extract some extra coin from the Gullible & Deluded.

The daily diet of profiling Sam Lammers, Cyriel Dessers, Dujon Sterling and Kieran Dowell required a special edition as Beale plotted his way to winning the SPFL title.

The season had ended in glory with a 3-0 dead rubber win over Celtic confirming the brilliance of the Brains Behind Gerrard.


Everything in the garden was rosy, announcing their super-duper publication the Glasgow based publisher roared:

Rangers are ready for glory as they take aim at Scottish football’s biggest prizes.

Michael Beale and his new-look Light Blues have their heart set on winning back the title and a shot at glory in the Champions League.

Beale’s boys will be rubbing shoulders with the best in Europe and chasing the dream in Scotland as they try to win domestic honours. And the Daily Record have produced a stunning new souvenir guide to Rangers’ season packed with unmissable features and analysis.

This unmissable guide is bursting with info for the campaign to come including exclusive columns from Barry Ferguson and Keith Jackson, fabulous features on super skipper James Tavernier, fan favourite Todd Cantwell and boss Beale.

Plus there’s a review of last season’s action, all the fixtures, a club-by-club guide and a super new blues poster. Rangers: Ready for Glory is the perfect way to mark the big kick-off for fans of the Ibrox club.

Alas, the important end of season special editions didn’t feature Beale, Tavpen, Cantwell or Dessers although Jackson and Ferguson grudgingly had to comment on Celtic’s double success.

Two victories in the Glasgow Derbies on May 11 and 25 has left a huge scar across the Ibrox support and the Sports Desk at the Record and Football Scotland.

Some fans are dubious over signing up Jefte, Leon Balogun and Oscar Cortes but already the Record are tipping Jefte for a move to Real Madrid.

Print circulation of the Record is expected to dip below 50,000 this month but regardless of that they seem determined to continue serving the same declining audience with the same dubious and dated content.
