Video of Elgin fan dancing at Ibrox Goes Viral | Scottish Football

Jenny, of Nairn, said she had no idea she was being filmed and was “mortified” to find out she was on TV.

“I was there myself. I drove from Nairn to Elgin and got on the supporters bus.

“I totally went for it. I thought it was time I let myself go.

“When I’m in a crowd I seem to be at my best.”

She added: “It was good crack on the way back.

“I was mortified. I didn’t know there was a camera on me.

“I didn’t want to make a fool of myself, I just wanted to let myself go.”

Reporter Gutted After 6,000 mile Trip | Football

Elgin City Football Club , Borough Briggs Stadium

A football reporter from Japan has travelled over 6,000 miles to cover Glasgow Rangers’ match at Elgin City, only to find it had been postponed when he arrived.

Writing for Footballista Magazine in Tokyo, sports reporter Daisuke Nakajima spent 14 hours on a plane and 5 on a train to get to Borough Briggs Stadium.

Upon his arrival, he discovered that because more tickets were sold than the terrace could hold, the game had been called off for safety measures.

Security feared that more than 1,000 extra fans would turn up for the Sunday fixture, according to The Mirror.

Nakajima said: “It was a very tiring, wasted journey. There are a lot of fans of Scottish football in Japan and the story of Rangers is of great interest.”

The reporter then attempted to interview Elgin City officials but was unsuccessful. He did, however, cherish the photos he took of his trip.


Football Fixture Postponed As Too Many Tickets Sold

Scottish giants Rangers game against Elgin City had to be postponed after too many tickets were sold for the game.
”Elgin City FC would like to apologise sincerely for this disappointing outcome. The SFL will conduct a full investigation into the circumstances.”

Scottish giants Rangers – whose home ground, Ibrox, has a capacity of more than 51,000 – were due to play Elgin City’s ground in Moray, north east Scotland, which can only hold 4,927 fans, but the match had to be called off because the Elgin weren’t aware how many tickets had been sold.

The Scottish Football League said in a statement: ”Following today’s (23.11.12) pre-ops meeting for the above match, it has come to light that there has been a substantial oversale of tickets for this fixture and Elgin City Football Club could not confirm the exact number of tickets which have been sold for this match.

”Therefore, on the grounds of public safety and in close consultation with all parties, this match has now been postponed.

”Further information regarding tickets which have been sold will be provided as quickly as possible.

”Elgin City FC would like to apologise sincerely for this disappointing outcome. The SFL will conduct a full investigation into the circumstances.”


Jambos Get HMRC Reprieve & Hibernian Sack The Stadium Announcer

 

Hearts have announced a deal with the tax man to back their outstanding bill in stages over the next month.

Announcing the deal with HMRC, Hearts director Sergejus Fedotovas said: “We are pleased that we have been granted this extension as it acknowledges the strenuous efforts that are going on to ensure this club continues to contribute to employment, society, community and football in Scotland.

“I also want to acknowledge the support received from political and supporter groups. Their direct action is helping the club through a very important period.

“We have a lot of hard work ahead of us in order to fully rectify our financial position but with further backing and ongoing fundraising by supporters we know that we have a very positive opportunity to create a strong club for the future.

“Make no mistake, the fans and players have been instrumental in achieving this extension with HMRC.

“The supporters’ efforts have been quite phenomenal. However, it is essential that they continue all their work to assist us in meeting financial targets at the club.”

Earlier this week a row broke out at  Hibernian after the stadium announcer played The Beatles song ‘Taxman’ near the end of the interval.

The Club later confirmed  “The stadium announcer’s contract has been terminated following a breach of conduct.”

Reports suggest the dismissal relates to an incident at the club’s Easter Road ground during Sunday’s match against Dundee United.
