To be a Ranger is to sense the sacred trust of upholding all that such a name means in this shrine of football. They must be true in their conception of what the Ibrox tradition seeks from them. No true Ranger has ever failed in the tradition set him.
Our very success, gained you will agree by skill, will draw more people than ever to see it. And that will benefit many more clubs than Rangers. Let others come after us. We welcome the chase. It is healthy for all of us.
Never fear, inevitably we shall have our years of failure, and when they arrive, we must reveal tolerance and sanity.
No matter the days of anxiety that come our way, we shall emerge stronger because of the trials to be overcome.
That has been the philosophy of the Rangers since the days of the gallant pioneers.
