Sick Rangers fans have posted a ‘Death List’ of people that they see as anti-Rangers. The Vanguard Bears, who claim to defend the traditions of the Ibrox side, listed 45 personalities and media outlets, asking their followers ‘Any personal favourites as to who’ll be next to get the big X?’
The Big X implying those who are dead and within said list they have already marked a large X over the images of the late Paul McBride QC and Paul McConville.

Others listed include not only Scotzine editor Andy Muirhead, but also BBC Employees Jim Spence, Mark Daly and Chris McLaughlin. SPFL chief executive Neil Doncaster is listed alongside Celtic chief executive Peter Lawwell, Scottish FA chief Stewart Regan and Raith Rovers chairman Turnbull Hutton.
Channel Four journalist Alex Thomson, who was heavily involved in covering the Rangers financial demise is also on the death list, alongside Celtic Foundation CEO Anthony Hamilton. There are places for former Rangers owners Sir David Murray and Craig Whyte, former Rangers chief executive Martin Bain and First Minister Alex Salmond.
The Vanguard Bears have a history of such behaviour, alongside sectarian and bigoted commentary and their latest disgusting and depraved act seems to have back fired somewhat as fans across the divide have condemned the supporters group via their official twitter feed. Not that they care going by the replies to their detractors.
