We will not walk away from Glasgow Rangers, and so far neither has Bill Miller. As for our manager Ally McCoist, we class this man as a legend.

After reading you recently published article 'Some Scottish Fans Dont Like Idea Of Takeover By Chattanooga Businessman' I felt it was extremely necessary to respond.
I am a Glasgow Rangers fan here in Scotland and like hundreds of thousands around the globe I hold my great club close to my heart...unfortunately for us we as fans have suffered years of mismanagement of our club that has had RFC close to the edge of extinction.
Craig Whyte took over our club less than a year ago and filled the Rangers fans with renewed hope for the future...what actually occurred was the complete opposite - he very nearly destroyed what we hold dear.
Which is why there are numbers in our support that are wary of another unknown entity taking control of Rangers...our fears are simply that - to us Bill Miller is largely unknown as was Craig Whyte.
The signs at the recent match highlight those fears - fears of asset stripping - fears that another owner in the mould of Craig Whyte could kill the club.
As you alluded the Scottish press have been digging (and they will continue) not so much to alleviate those fears but to try to reinforce them...only today a national news outlet tried to prey on these fears by announcing that a company linked with Bill Miller 'Health Sports' was in a state of bankruptcy.
However there has been growing support for Bill Miller in the last 24 hours simply due to the fact that research has been done and it has revealed that he has a proven track record and by all accounts appears to be an respectable and trustworthy man.
I implore Bill Miller to talk directly to the fans - if he does he will likely find a receptive group that have a willingness to hear what he has to say.
I personally wish him luck throughout this process and want to tell him that the family he is about to join will change his life forever.
I leave him with a quote from one of our most legendary Rangers. "I have been lucky - lucky in those who were around me from the boardroom to the dressing-room. In time of stress, their unstinted support, unbroken devotion to our club and calmness in adversity eased the task of making Rangers FC the premier club in this country.
"To be a Ranger is to sense the sacred trust of upholding all that such a name means in this shrine of football. They must be true in their conception of what the Ibrox tradition seeks from them. No true Ranger has ever failed in the tradition set him.
"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." - Bill Struth
