Back to yesterdays draw. As i watched the three guys stand there the only thing missing was a conveyor belt with a cuddly toy on it.

End of the Road for King?
MARK CJANUARY 23, 2017 at 15:35 The SPFL position has been stated as same club so he couldnt use them as evidence. The SFA have previously said the membership was transferred from oldco to newco and through their website still recognise Rangers as the same club(or they did in the run up to the Scottish Cup Final when listing previous finals) They also in a submission to the Advertising Standards Agency, said the same thing.
—————-
The SPFL can state any position it wants out of self interest we know it’s all lies the same goes for the SFA

I have chosen to look at the figures in a slightly different way, looking at them only from the time of the inception of TRFC
Since their inception, TRFC have been involved in 16 Scottish Cup ties, not counting semis and finals, they have been drawn away 4 times, but, since their financial plight became more widely known (particularly by those at Hampden), and, in particular, since King took control, they have had no away ties in the Scottish Cup.
————
Do you know how many of these ties have been televised? and is it about the same% as any other club that has home ties?
——————–
they’ve had a very ‘lucky’ run of not too difficult fixtures, particularly as all but one match against top tier opposition, have been drawn at home.
—————-
Was there better draws that could have been shown on tv as to A home draw for an ibrox club against  not top tier opposition

It would take all scrutiny away from the club and could leave the chairman role to someone more respected such as Alistair Johnston.

You do know Alistair Johnston.was on the board during the EBT years and  Johnston admits the other ongoing tax probe could leave Rangers with a bill they cannot afford to pay.

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.

FROM LINK ABOVE.
The SFA board is due to meet in late January to consider its findings and, although no final decision is expected at that stage, it will shape Hampden’s future.

Agreed… but just where would the SFA call home?

15) With recent coverage surrounding the SFA and the Hampden lease expiring in 2020, there’s asuspicion that the SFA will take internationals, finals etc to Parkhead. Can we expect the board tovigorously push Ibrox for these fixtures and thus create another important revenue stream?The Executive is in close dialogue with the SFA with regards to the situation at Hampden.

Hope all the other clubs executives are in close dialogue with the SFA with regards to the situation at Hampden.

There is absolutely no reason why games can’t be played in Aberdeen, Edinburgh, Glasgow, or anywhere else with a stadium suitable for a specific match.
Agreed… but just where would the SFA call home?

Most, not all. One also wonders who pays for the upkeep of the stadium and other associated costs.
—————–
The Spiders, who remain an amateur club and are celebrating their 150th anniversary, say comments made by SFA chief executive Stewart Regan to BBC Scotland had caused them “great concern”.
They said in a website statement that they “would seek confirmation from the Scottish FA that they have fulfilled their responsibilities, under the present lease, to maintain the stadium and further detailed evidence to support Mr Regan’s statement”.
