RANGERS DOOMED TO SCOTTISH ABYSS

EXTRA TIME
BRIAN SCIARETTA - Friday, July 13, 2012
Twenty-five of the 30 SFL clubs today voted on the fate of the new Rangers FC and decided the club must begin in the Third Division.

The news was an enormous setback for the country's most prestigious team who, even if all goes well, will not be able to return to the Scottish Premier league for at least four years. But it also puts the future of its current players in jeopardy who are all surely looking to move elsewhere.

Rangers have three Americans on their roster in Carlos Bocanegra, Alejandro Bedoya, and Maurice Edu. It is very unlikely that any remain with the club as they are now at the semi-pro levels.

Rangers have been mired in a financial downfall this past year and the old Rangers company which was founded in 1872 dissolved last month and were replaced with a entirely new company.

The new company will not be able to carry with it the 54 Scottish title or any other silverware earned by the previous club.

The History of the famous Rangers lives, all past honours won will still be in the history of the club, it is at a PLC level that a new company has started. despite some peoples best efforts the rangers survive. Edu should leave to further his career, bedoya has shown little but "Captain America" Mr Bocanegra could stay and guide this great club back to the top division.

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 the others come after us. We welcome the chase. It is healthy for us. We will never hide from it. 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. ~ William Struth

All Yanks, abandon ship!

Boca, return to the MLS and tutor your new partner, the OG in LA.
Edu, accept a new challenge in Turkey and learn a little CB in the process.
Bedoya, refocus your career with a return to Scandanavia.

So has anything been decided on how this will affect the promotion and relegation of the other teams wanting to fill in the empty spots in the pyramid?
