Re Charles Green. Heaven forbid we have to return to the days of his interviews with Rangers TV being repeated in the media without challenge save for a few decent hacks. Heaven forbid we have to again sit and wonder just what he would have to say to be hit with a disrepute charge, while players and officials of all other clubs are fervently scrutinised by Mr Lunny. In summary Scottish football does not need this inflammatory buffoon anywhere near us.

Hats off to Michael Grant from today’s Herald. He does not miss Green and hit the wall!

Never a dull moment – not with Charles putting in an appearance again 😀

“The BBC has learned former Rangers chief executive Charles Green is seeking financial support to launch a new bid for control of the Ibrox club.”
50p each from 500 million fans should sort it!

Still on Stewart Regan, I found this quote from an interview he gave to the BBC in February 2013.

“It’s OK having sporting merit but if you haven’t got any money to run your game and you end up with clubs going down the tubes, that doesn’t help anybody.”

Just how wrong has Regan been on this? Only one club has gone down the tubes since 2012, and he pulled out all the stops to ensure a new, broadly similar entity was allowed to replace it. Other clubs, notably Hearts and Dunfermline have come through pain but have come out the other side in a leaner, healthier position, with their historical identities intact.

Why does no-one from the Scottish media ever try and hold Regan to account on anything?

Wow! I know we are not meant to put much store on the thumbs up or down, but two people have given thumbs down to this post! Who on earth could find fault with a post respecting the dead from the Ibrox disaster?


A bit puzzled at the thumbs down myself A.J, but there’s nowt queerer than folk as they say!

On this day in 1971, the Ibrox disaster happened during a Rangers v Celtic game at Ibrox. 66 fans died in a crush. Some of us remember that day, some of us may even have been there, while some of us would not even be on this earth at the time. 

We are all football fans. Nobody should go to a football match and never return home. Rest in Peace.

“If they move out of Hampden, the SFA are in danger of leaving themselves hostages to Rangers and Celtic,” said Queen’s Park president Alan Hutchison.


I am a Celtic shareholder and if it was up to me (which it is not), I would tell the SFA here and now that Celtic Park is unavailable for any future fixture.  However I know that will not happen, but I doubt there is anything they could do to force Celtic to allow them use of the stadium.

I see, too, that PMGB is issuing challenges, in two posts, to the Ibrox based boards to issue denials of what he is telling us.


I see it is alleged £800k is owed to suppliers. In my view unless any of it is due to a financial behemoth such as one of the big six energy suppliers, then we are unlikely to see any winding up requests heading towards court. It simply wouldn’t be worth the risk for any small supplier in Scotland to do that. Having said that I find it remarkable anyone is willing to extend them any sort of credit at all, or are they worried about the bully boys on that score as well?

I’m sure the SFA will want to satisfy themselves all is well though. I am also sure a herd of pink elephants takes off from Glasgow Airport at 20:00hrs tonight with the moon as their destination.

Phil McG alleging a surveyor has recently visited Rangers training ground to attain a valuation, and that King has also approached a non-Uk Finance House. As Phil says this may well be King raising funds to make a share offer, but IMO it could be to raise working capital too.
