Comment on Good Try Mr. McKenzie by Jingso.Jimsie.

Today’s ‘Column Of Keith’ in the online DR is a gem.

For example, in regard to last season semi-final victory over CFC: “In that one afternoon, Warburton managed to raise the expectations of his own board and supporters to levels way beyond the bounds of reality.”

That was in no way assisted by the SMSM, was it Keith? You (and your ilk) are just as responsible as Green, Whyte, Somers, Wattie, SuperAlly, Warburton et alia. You just don’t get it. 

A wee song from 1966 for eveyone:

@ StevieBC (and others):

Headlines reading ‘Barry McKay Is Worth Less Than Half Oliver Burke’s Transfer Fee’ wouldn’t have sold many papers to the Ibrox blue massive 11101521 

I’m told (unverifiable) that the £6m tag originally came from a bit of dressing-room banter, as players gave (inflated/dream) values to themselves & their team-mates. Someone present passed these throwaway comments to their Level Sinko contact for a pat on the head & a Mars Bar & the rest is chip-papers.

Is there any truth that DCK is in Glasgow for a medical before signing as a player, valuing himself at £30m & thus fulfilling his promise?

Just watching a clip from Sky Sports where Davie Provan was asked what would it take for Rangers to close the gap on Celtic. “Hard cash”, was his answer, but no insight as to where it will come from. Just like Walter Smith, Ally McCoist, Willie Henderson etc.

I wonder why people are scared to point out Rangers were never really rich, that they just had a very friendly bank, then adopted very dodgy tax avoidance practices…

I suspect the only time that any form of Rangers had ‘hard cash’ in the last thirty years was in the immediate aftermath of Chuck’s IPO.

I wonder what happened to it?

I noticed a link to this article elsewhere & I think it’s worth sharing:

One can often gauge what the current popular view is by reading the scribblings in the daily record. In particular those of Keith Jackson…

You have to remember that the Monday morning ‘Keich By Keith’ is an ‘opinion’ piece, rather than reportage.

His opinion, going by today’s column, is rather confused.

I read Ewen Murray’s report last evening. It’s a decent piece, particularly when compared to BBC Scotland’s on-line match report. However, like many, he’s in denial or ignorance about the songbook. The BTL comments are worth reading as well.

Thanks to those who replied to my query of 1704 yesterday.

Without prejudice, I’ll just leave this here.

I’m sure the majority of readers can work out what I mean.
