Comment on Enough is enough by Billy Boyce.

John James in a blog earlier today reviews Craig Whyte’s forthcoming autobiography.  We only have JJ’s word that the book is in the offing, but he reproduces a chapter detailing how Whyte was detained by DCI Robertson at Heathrow after the Mexican authorities had refused him entry.  JJ states that the Motherwell Billionaire will reveal that a rival club approached him to throw a match in order to help RFC’s finances.  JJ has just made the attached Tweet.  I do hope that both JJ and Whyte are on solid ground – it would be an expensive exercise otherwise.  Perhaps Craig’s magic pen might just be his salvation?
As far as I can see they must be talking about the end of season 2010/11 with three games remaining, namely Hearts, which RFC won 4-0, Dundee United 2-0 and Kilmarnock, 5-1.  In the Killie game RFC went ahead with three early goals and won the League by a solidary point – a close shave, but it opened the CL door for RFC.

The BBC Scotland report:

“Four months later, the company’s business and assets were sold to a consortium led by Charles Green for £5.5m.”

Perhaps our friends at Pacific Quay could explain that for the sake of us simple mortals who are under the impression it was merely the surviving assets that Charles de Normande acquired.

If by HRH you mean ‘Old Mother Riley’ then it should be HMQ.  After all, we have to give Her Maj all due respect.

I see that Graham Spiers has made a nice put-down on Twitter this morning.  I hope the font size is large enough to read on this extract.

Sorry, the Sunday Mail extract I posted (above) omitted the Mark Allen article – now attached

Does anyone else suspect that  Mr Allen may see his future elsewhere.
It looks as if there is a whispering campaign against Allen within the Blue Room.  The Sunday Mail article (attached) suggests Mark is getting his retaliation in first before he becomes the next club official to ‘resign’.  Even the Herald feels the need to give its tuppenceworth on his role in this latest saga.  I wonder who has suddenly turned the spotlight on the esteemed Director of Football?

Does impecuniosity trump concomitant?

” Given the circumstances put forward by the respondent in support of his supposed impecuniosity they are of no significance. His impecuniosity is entirely self-generated….the Trusts have been willing to provide money for the purchase of Rangers shares when the respondent wished them to do so. Now, suddenly, when the respondent does not wish to comply with the terms of Rule 9 the Trusts no longer are willing to provide any money. “

As an aside it is obvious Lord Bannatyne wants things off his desk before the festive break.
If indeed His Lordship promulgates his judgment on Friday 22nd then I for one would be highly suspicious of the baffling delay in doing so.  Lord Bannatyne was required to make a comparatively simple ruling on whether he “may” or “must” decide.  It is not as if he was tasked with safeguarding the constitution of the realm.  Even sending a felon to the gallows would not entail the length of time this matter has sat on his desk.
With the recent flurry of activity down Ibrox way, I wonder if Lord Bannatyne has deliberately waited until certain moves have been completed so that any ‘cold shoulder’ process against King becomes superfluous.  Time and truth will tell.

Sour grapes or just some mischief making?  I heard on Radio Scotland’s sports slot this morning that Chris Jack is reporting there’s more to the McInnes appointment saga than meets the eye.  Apparently, progress talks even got as far as Derek selecting the Ibrox side for the Ross County game on Saturday.  Has the Concomitant King instructed his PR guru to stir the pot?
