We, the undersigned, call on the board of Rangers Football Club to give serious consideration to the creation of a dedicated museum.
We believe it is only right that a club of Rangers’ stature have a museum in order to encourage an understanding of our history and achievements. Such a project would allow Rangers to commemorate the many significant achievements in our past and benefit future generations by collecting and preserving a wide-range of historical objects.
While not underestimating the magnitude of the task, we ask that sources of funding be explored and possible partners identified. We are confident the Rangers community has numerous individuals who might contribute to this project.
At a time when many are trying to detach us from our history, we feel a museum would be a tangible expression of both continuity and the importance we place on links to past generations of players and fans. The club forged by Meiklejohn and Greig, Struth and Waddell has seen terrible tragedy and unrivalled joy. It is more than a football club; it is part of our identity.
Recent events have made us realise it’s something we must continue to cherish and protect. A Rangers museum would not only be a tribute to the past but a gift for the future.
