Scott Nisbet
As you may have seen, former Rangers player and regular at the Hong Kong Soccer 7s, Scott Nisbet has recently been diagnosed with cancer. Scott has 4 kidney tumours and requires life-threatening surgery. The former Rangers Players Benevolent Fund has set up the following JustGiving page. As agreed at the AGM, the HKRSC has already made a donation of £250. See attached. If you would also like to make a personal contribution, you can do so here:

Scott has been sending some video messages to Colin Stewart (trustee at the former Rangers Players charity) which he has been sharing on his Twitter feed. You can follow Colin on Twitter here: https://twitter.com/RFC_Colin
He is in very good spirits and his messages are very entertaining too!

Running for Jack
We were very recently contacted by Lorna McCabe, a Hong Kong resident and very close friend of Louise Stevens, the wife of former Rangers players Gary Stevens. Gary and his family now reside in Perth, Australia and recently received the shattering news that their beloved son Jack had Leukaemia. Jack is the youngest of their 3 boys and just turned 3 on the 12th June. As part of a fund raising drive to help her friends, Lorna will be running a virtual marathon here in Hong Kong this coming Saturday morning. She will start at 5:30am in the morning and will run a total of 42.2km along Bowen Road. Lorna has been very kind to also share some family photos from the Stevens family (below). You can read the full bio and make a donation to Lorna via the following link (Please note that donations are listed in Aussie dollars): https://www.gofundme.com/f/ght6t-running-for-jack
Lorna also has set up a Twitter account for her run which I would encourage any Twitter users to follow and help spread her message: https://twitter.com/runningforjack

Rangers vs Sheep (a)
In terms of our opening league match against the sheep this coming Saturday, due to the current social distancing measures the Trafalgar, and all other bars, will be closed for this match, hence it looks like it’s going to be Rangers TV from home for us all.
You can sign up for Rangers TV here: https://tv.rangers.co.uk/

Old Firm game tonight!

Bears,

I’m awake at 9am on a Sunday.. that can only mean one thing – it’s Old Firm day!!

We travel across the city to take on you know who at Parkhead. With only 800 bears in attendance it will take a very special performance to get a result there but after what we witnessed on Thursday anything is possible!

The game will be shown live in Trafalgar, Broadway building on Lockhart Road in Wanchai with a 7pm kick off. We expect it to be busy so best to arrive sharp.

See you this evening

Cheers,
Darren

Hong Kong RSC AGM – Tonight 8pm @ The Trafalgar

Bears,
Another Edinburgh team today as we take on Hearts at Ibrox. No shock that Ryan Jack has been cleared to play after last week’s shocking referee display.
The game will be shown live in Trafalgar in Wanchai with a 10pm kick-off.

The HKRSC AGM will also be held before the match tonight in Trafalgar. It will start at 8pm.

See you tonight

Cheers,
Darren

It’s all about The Rangers

The small matter of playing against a new club…………or so they like to tell us!!

As we all know, we face the team from the East of the city on Saturday in the first old firm game of the season at Parkhead.

It will be amazing to see how many empty seats are in the home end as I don’t think many of them will turn up for a small game against such a newly formed club. Then again, who am I to argue against their kind of logic??? Usually I just laugh at it.

The game will be shown live in Trafalgar in Wanchai as usual with a 7pm kick off HK time. We expect it to be pretty busy as usual for this game so I would recommend arriving sharp. We will have the game on a number of screens so hopefully everyone will get a good view of the match.

Let’s hope for a good match and a victory!

See you on Saturday

Cheers,

Darren

Hong Kong RSC Donation to MND Scotland

Below is an email we received from Mr. Iain McWhirter of MND Scotland following our donation from the funds raised at the raffle during the Scottish Cup semi-final match.

 

Thank you so much to everyone at the Hong Kong Rangers Supporters Club for this wonderful donation of $2,550.00 HKD to MND Scotland following the recent raffle.

I’m really grateful to you all for making a real difference to the lives of everyone affected by Motor Neurone Disease. It’s only because of support from people like you that we can continue to fund research to find a cure, support people in Scotland who have been affected by MND, and campaign on behalf of people with this  cruel illness.

To have witnessed the devastating impact of MND on Fernando Ricksen has been heart-breaking, and the bravery of his fight against the disease has been truly inspirational.

We can, we must and we will find a cure. Thanks again for your generosity which will take us one step closer to this goal.

Very best wishes,

Scottish Cup Semi-final 

Bears

 Another trip to Hampden on Sunday as I’m sure you all know …

This time it’s the Scottish Cup Semi Final we do battle in at 7pm local HK time.

The match as usual will be shown live in Trafalgar in Wan Chai. As there is a larger than normal turnout expected we have asked Trafalgar to have the game on as many screens as possible but I would still recommend arriving sharpish to ensure a good view.

Also, at half-time we will be holding a raffle with the great photograph of the Ibrox gates (pic attached if I’ve managed to do it correctly!!) as the top prize. This one-off was kindly donated by HKRSC member John Inglis. It is a great photograph which I’m sure John will tell us more about on Sunday. Many thanks to John for the kind donation.
The raffle will be equally split between club funds and charity.
I look forward to seeing you on Sunday evening at the match!
Cheers,

Darren

Rangers vs Celtc – League Cup Semi Final

That time is almost upon as we return to hostilities with our old enemy although we don’t need to take out a full page newspaper advert to tell you that….
The league cup semi-final will be shown live in Trafalgar on Sunday evening with a 21.30 kick-off.
As we would expect a larger than normal turn out for this match, I have asked Trafalgar to reserve a few more tables than usual and to look at the possibility of putting the game on a few more screens. I would advise everyone to get there sharpish and in good time for the match just in case there are any other matches on involving those not as successful as the most successful club side in the world so that we can all get installed with a good view of the match.

 

We will also be holding a “first & last goalscorer” raffle with tickets only available pre-match. Tickets will be $200 each with up to $2000 available in prize money. All proceeds raised will be going to purchase another 1872 life membership in Rangers First, which you may have noticed yesterday breached the 1 million share mark. If you combine Rangers First with the RST Buy Rangers campaign the fan groups now own 2.5% of the club. Combined they have almost 11,000 members contributing monthly payments from as little as £5.  If you haven’t joined up yet, please do so to either or both.
