NOVEMBER 4, 2017 at 18:55 A surprisingly accurate report of the salient parts of the RIFC plc Consolidated Accounts and Reports for the year to 28 June 2017 from BBC Sport Scotland. http://www.bbc.co.uk/sport/football/41869400
—————————————————-
“Rangers paid a £3m sum to release themselves from a retail contract with Mike Ashley’s Sports Direct.”

Did they, 

This is what the relevant note actually says.

On 21 June 2017, the Group entered into a new retail operations, distribution and IP license agreement with SDI Retail Services Limited (replacing all existing agreements) and a deed of settlement and release in respect of all ongoing litigation and claims. In connection with these arrangements and the termination of the existing contracts,The Rangers Football Club Limited (TRFCL) incurred a non-recurring cost as shown and various dividend payments were agreed in respect of Rangers Retail Limited which have and will result in dividend payments to TRFCL. All of the litigation to which members of the Group and SDIR and its connected persons were party was dismissed between the members of the Group and SDIR and its connected persons on a no expenses due to or by basis.Going forward, the payments to TRFCL under the new license agreement will be significantly higher than under the previous agreements.

That to me reads like they have paid to have the deal altered and to settle all ongoing litigation between themselves and Sports Direct. Not quite the same.

For info I see JJ has published an extract of a pending Craig Whyte book.  

———————————————————-

It really depends what one means by “pending”.

“There is already huge media interest in Craig’s story. National newspaper serialisation is guaranteed. True Blue Treachery will be 75,000 words and delivered three months from signature of contract. True Blue Treachery. Sample Chapter”

It would appear to be “pending” if anyone is interested in actually offering a contract to publish it.

Did you read any of the “sample chapter”. I struggle to think of why anyone would want to read this garbage. To be fair I have never been a fan of the historic present tense.


Enough is enough
Just watching Sportscene.

The new stand at Tynecastle is looking the part, at least on TV.

Maybe Scottish football has a future after all.


Enough is enough
Just a thought that occurred.

If Rangers employed Alex McLeish at say £20k (gross) a week he would probably be able to clear his outstanding tax bill in a couple of years. 

Provided he gave all of the money to HMRC obviously.

You guessed, what gave it away.

Our hero, and he really is a hero is at it again with his self-effacing prose.

“I cover every issue and more often than not you will read it here first. If I were a Superhero and not a mere blogger I would literally champion the oppressed. However as one who believes  that the pen is mightier than the sword I revert to keystrokes. I have never had a tattoo but if I ever decided to go down this route I would choose the Palestinian flag. However as this might offend one of my my best friends, Max in Tel Aviv, I continue to demure.”

I’m assuming he means demur, however he could well be a shy, modest lady. 

The heroism continues

“When it comes to murderers who remain at large this site will continue to hold the most the most odious mass murderer since Pol Pot, Tony Blair, to account. Given half a chance I would fell him with a single head-butt or induce irreparable damage to his frontal lobes with an upward punch to his nose. Suffice to say I have sufficient training in martial arts to make this blow count. People like Blair are immune to the pen. This lily livered pansy deserves the sword.”

Can you guess who it is yet.

THE case for retaining Hampden as the home of Scottish football has been dealt a blow after a survey found just 15 per cent of fans were happy to stay put.

…..

The Scottish Football Supporters Association (SFSA) carried out a survey of just under 3,000 of its members and found only a sixth wanted to see major internationals and cup finals staged at Hampden.
