Operation Tango

I may have mentioned that Rangers won the Scottish League Championship the other day on the last day of the season.Our rivals were at home to Hearts and needed to win whilst hoping Dundee United beat or drew with Rangers as this scenario would have given them the title.Most of the fans at the games were relying on text messages to keep them up to date with how their rivals game was progressing, although so long as Rangers won, it didn't matter how celtc got on.Glasgow may be a divided city but most of us know season ticket holders who support the enemy and there were certainly plenty of text messages/emails being exchanged last week about where the league title would end up.

In one of the best wind-ups for years,a group of Rangers supporters agreed on a set time to text their celtc supporting friends/colleagues/aquaintances with the completely made up news that Dundee United had scored.Of course on the day Rangers were 1-0 at the time and when "news" of Dundee United's equalising goal came through by text a huge roar went up and even their coach leapt from the dugout ( sadly no footage of that) in delight at the prospect of being right back in the title race.Of course Dundee United hadn't scored at all and they were all well and truly tangoe'd.Hardy har har!

Played two $22's and won them both last night before losing one earlier today when I had my Aces busted.Off out tonight.Back soon...

Well done on winning the two $22s as well as Rangers winning the title. How far do you think they can go next year in the Champions League?

They'll get booted out at the last 16 or before and the fans will start calling for a new manager...

It's an annual occurence.. ;-)

That's weird - I was watching the Celtic game last sunday (my dad was over and Celtic were the first leg in his bet) and I heard the cheer go up - I said to my old man "Looks like Rangers are no longer winning..." and then got confused when they weren't.

Great wind-up!

Cheers Dave.How far? Not very sadly as we simply don't get enough tv money in Scotland to allow us to compete with the top teams from other countries.I'd take a place in the last 16 and to not get any gubbings in the group stages!

Aye Nick,they were well and truly tangoe'd!
