We all know of the hysteria going on of opposition fans regarding Rangers and stripping of titles but I just read something quite interesting on facebook.

Seems a group are trying to start a campaign where titles won during the second world war are made official, Rangers would then not only have 61 league titles but also be the first team to achieve 9iar......not once but twice !!!

Now I already knew this but the next part I did not.......all titles won during the first world war were official !!
Celtic in that case would be on going for titles number 40 this season !

I know its a little bit of fun but it does raise the question why it counts for one war but not the second. I know players etc signed up to fight but so too did others in 1914.
