Comment on Beware the angry Shareholders — they might just demand an answer! by Exiled Celt.


However on thinking things through further the Rangers support are part of the Scottish game and so when Sir David Murray and Campbell Ogilvie embarked on a policy of tax evasion (for sure in the wtc and probably in the btc) they also broke a trust with Ranger’s supporters by taking your club of which they were custodians, into the shameful territory that you now occupy and which you are having to apologise for.


Spot on – as I have mentioned a few times all my family with exception of me obviously were all RFC fans – I have attended RFC games in the 70’s with my big brothers and they were all prone to tell me if I did not behave, they would tell everyone who I supported etc. But I had my revenge when my mum made them take me to see Kenny/Jinky! Anyhow – we have always had loads of banter – lots of fun – and nothing too dramatic.

However all of them to a person have stopped going to Ibrokes – and all of their sons and their kids too. Up to RFC days, they attended maybe 10 or 20 games a year – big game folks for sure – but they all spent money on RFC merchandise by the lorry load,

None of them go now. Not one of them have a puma strip. None of them have much interest. A couple of them went to a few games – the Hedges game where Sevco Scotland played and a game against Montrose. My nephew was ticked off that everyone around him seemed to have free tickets for some reason (I posted a copy of one he got as a souvenir on RTC)..

Now to Auldheids point – the money that used to go from RTC from my extended family has all but dried up – and their sons and grandsons are “Rangers” but never get to go to the games. None of them wear current strips – all are more interested in National team, EPL, or Champions League.

Will it change if/when TRFC get to the summit? Don’t think so – there is a real let down feeling amongst them all about SDM and what happened – none of them will admit to me that its a new club – and I have stopped trying to talk about it now.

Shame of it all is we almost never talk football anymore – only thing we can all agree on nowadays is a realization that no matter if Allan Hutton was the most capped player for Scotland on the pitch the other night and that he was sold by RFC for 8 million quid at one time – he is still utterly useless!!

But these fans are lost to TRFC now.

I hope Neepheid reconsiders as he has been a giant on this and RTC – would a shame not to have his input.

Neepheid does raise some valid points about the legality (or at the very least lack of transparency) of how Sevco5088/Sevco Scotland got to have a team out in time to play Brechin amongst the hedges.

The 5 way (not 4 way!) was agreed and announced on a Friday evening while everyone watched the opening ceremony of the London Olympics. From 8pm there was a matter of 20 or so hours to get all the paperwork to SFA to have the players registered, trialists registered, playing kit assembled and travel details organized.

Remember up to that point there was only the Bibs v Non Bibs game at Ibrox that had to be organized.

So are we to believe that the new membership invented by SFA (conditional) that is nowhere in any of its rules was given to the current team that evening just in time for the game? No – and anyway we all know its nonsense what happened because the “real” membership was transferred AFTER the Brechin game to RIFC.

And what of the Club12 in the fixture list? Why were Dundee forced to wait so long for confirmation they would play in SPL that they had no preperations for SPL and as such were relegated long before the season started.

Neepheid has a great point about the liquidation being delayed – we all cheered when the delay was announced as we all assumed he would find what everyone at the time knew and what the tapes have confirmed – that D&P were so conflicted it makes CO appear innocent! It was another delaying tactic unfortunately! As were every other decision in this – the transfer embargo, the CoS, the LNS verdict – everything delayed until a time of their choosing to fit the result of their choosing.

However I would advise Neepheid not to be so ready to throw the towel in – not yet anyway.

Scotland Internet Bampots for Sporting Integrity & Accountability needs folks like Neepheid!

Am sure the next question will be – if the real storyline that going on while the squirrels run amok (see David Low tweet below from this afternoon!) and Worthingtons do indeed win and prove that Sevco5088 is the real owner, then who played last year and won SFL3 – will it count in the new honours of the newest new club? Wow….SSB could be running circles over it all!

This portion interested me in the TRFC ST blurb.

“In addition, a limited number of value season tickets will be introduced, seeing the lowest adult price at Ibrox in more than 10 years.”

Having worked for ticketing pricing/accounting in a major US airline – I think they are using interesting similar tactics.

In order to get advertising going you designate the minimum no of seats as Consumer Watchdog will allow at a low price – say out of 350 seats you have 10 seats available for 200 while the rest are 300 – 500. You can now advertise the famous = prices start at only 200 – when in fact there is zero chance anyone outside of the 10 (which are sold via favoured outlets for commercial gain) will have a chance to get the for sale ones – they are then hooked into buying the other ones. This is favoured heavily by low cost carriers. And now seemingly football clubs!

Newcastle owner Mike Ashley plots move to buy Rangers and take them back to the Champions League

The controversial Toon owner could uses his billions to rescue the ailing Scottish giants and restore them to their former glories

Great Scot: Is Mike Ashley set to go north of the border?

Newcastle owner Mike Ashley is ready to buy Scottish giants Rangers and bring back their glory days, reports Alan Nixon in the Sunday People.

The billionaire businessman, who already owns seven per cent of the Ibrox club, dreams of taking Rangers into the Champions League in the next two years.

But the 49-year-old has no plans to offload Newcastle – bad news for Toon fans who are desperate to see the back of him.

Yesterday members of the Mike Ashley Out Campaign held an open-top bus protest through the city centre before the game with Manchester United – they are fed up with Ashley’s stewardship of their club, claiming he runs it as a financial exercise rather than a sporting institution.

Owning two clubs in the same competition is forbidden – which could give Ashley problems should both Toon and Rangers qualify for Europe.

Ashley knows there is money to be made from the loyal Rangers supporters, as fanatical as Newcastle’s.

For all their current financial problems, Rangers could still be a money-making machine in the right hands.

I’d be pretty p!ssed off if the rumour that Celtic have fined Griffiths is true. It just backs up the lunacy at the SFA…


Nearly…….the fine by his employers makes the follow up charge by SFA even more nonsensical

Celtic had every right to slap him on the wrists – he should not by his own conduct blemish the reputation and good standing of his employer. Hopefully he has learned that he is now in a real fishbowl and cannot be seen to be doing this stuff when everyone and his uncle has a phone with video etc ready to send and post it all over the internet.

However, for the SFA to then become involved is nonsense – which is why Celtic are defending him on that – basically saying we have taken care of it and there is no need for a double punishment…………

I for one am not at all unhappy with Celtic for their stance so not sure why you are “pi$$ed”

Scottish Football: An Honest Game, Honestly Governed?
Ok here is something to consider………Goosey has got me thinking………….

SDM said CW duped him – everyone including me guffaws……..but what if……….

What if DK was the man that was supposed to take over the Marble Staircase but his issues with SARS meant he could not and the timing of this could not have been any worse since now SDM had no more time to delay until DK was free due to Lloyds now demanding their money back as well as his crumbling MIH empire………

So they find someone who will be the figurehead until DK can move in and take over…………

Jack built CW up thanks to Keef to be the billionaire – MH were SDM’s boys doing the favour….so they built him up because it suited their agenda to have him accepted. SDM also ignored Bain and Johnstons warnings – SDM also put CW in touch with Ticketus – seemed all very friendly indeed between SDM and CW.
During the CW reign, DK was not only getting financial reports on a continuous basis but also was the only one not fired or forced out – and as soon as Admin happens, in flies DK………….

DK was an important piece – and thinks he is owed after his 20 million gift to Murray Sports…….

But what if for once SDM was telling the truth……

What if DK was supposed to be the Loving Cup toaster in waiting……….and CW was supposed to be the foreman meantime………..but decided instead to go with his plan to get Ibrox and Moses MacNeil Park via a quick administration……….which backfired when Charles and Imran reneged on their promises………..

According to our late friend Corsica, CW, CG and DK were amongst a select group in Zurich for a wee chat………. now why would DK want to be doing that……….the others we know why, but DK?

Could it be that Lord Cardigans last minute attempt was an attempt by SDM to get the assets safe until DK was back in the ring once his SARS troubles were over……

However, CG and his band had already got visions of mansions in France and despite their Rangersitis, saw the possibilities of their bank balances increasing substantially.

DK was left without his promised position at the head of the Peepil and has been trying to finagle a way back in ever since……..

Maybe for once Murray is telling the truth……….and he was indeed duped……… was DK.

Some things start to make a bit more sense if you go along those lines…………
