At the end of the day it doesn’t matter to most people if Rangers fans view the current entity as the same club. Who knows how we all may react to such a scenario. What does matter is the authorities in Scotland appear to have worked with the current entity to create a vision that nothing has changed, when in reality there was no previously separate club and it was liquidated. It shows the cultural power the Rangers support have in Scotland when this can happen. I think it is safe to say that no other Scottish football entity would receive such favourable treatment. I often wonder what the SFA stance would have been had it been Celtic that were liquidated. My view is the SFA may well have wanted the new entity to be part of the league due to its fan base, but it would be made clear it was a year zero start in terms of trophies. I really can’t get my head round why the SFA chose to say this new Rangers entity has the history of the one that was liquidated. There is no reasonable explanation other than fear, or naked bias. I don’t believe the scar will ever heal for fans of clubs who played by the rules yet see this new entity receiving such preferential treatment.

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.
