The Clumpany, who sometimes posts on here, get’s it spot on in terms of the media coverage of a new Manager search at Ibrox.

Enough is enough
JOHN CLARKNOVEMBER 19, 2017 at 16:58 ______________You can breathe a little easier,uth, when I say that such funding as was received from Sportscotland is secured against a charge on“All and Whole the subjects known as Training Centre Youth Academy,Auchenhowie Road,Milngavie,Glasgow G42 6EJ  and registered in the Land Register of Scotland under title number DMB65871”


Thanks John. Given there is public interest in this facility I wonder how that sits with it being offered to every Celtic European opponent for training? Probably not much to be honest. However in my opinion it is a practice as petty and pathetic as banning players from wearing green boots.  I was glad to see the Celtic CEO response at the AGM to the shareholder who objected to Celtic using Parks of Hamilton coaches, who are of course owned by a Rangers Director.  Apart from anything else Celtic have been using that firm for decades, and believe they are the best available. Predictably though some in the media used the view of one Celtic shareholder to sneer and generalise about the priorities of the fans. Perhaps they should glance at the coach park behind the Jock Stein stand at the next home game and see how much it bothers some Celtic supporters clubs who also use Parks.

Even if they somehow do manage to convert the loans to shares, unless they seriously cut their cloth, the need for borrowing will simply kick in again.  

As for Murray Park the question I always have is whether it was actually paid for, or the money which it cost to build was included in the £800m written off by BOS. Remember Murray transferred £50m of the debt attributed to the football club to other parts of his group, not that long after Murray Park was built. There is not much left to happen that could be a shock, but surely if their much bragged about training facility was effectively paid for by a majority state owned bank it would be a major scandal. I guess we’ll never know because no-one seems willing to look under the bonnet to establish why BOS supported them to the level they did.

Why all this misplaced trust by the bears in their boards of directors.

As I said in an earlier post, it can go on forever as far as I am concerned.  However, to compound things further I think young Murty wrote himself out of the running to be Manager with the result yesterday. Another win would have given them more reason to appoint him as an affordable option. Perhaps there is a solution though, as suggested by another caller to Radio Clyde. Apparently all the Directors ‘should sell up all their other business interests and put the money into the Rangers’!

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.
