What a surprise as Livvy have to apologise about their programme

However at no time does he actually question the veracity of what was written!

How Not To Govern Scottish Football
I noted something at the game yesterday which infuriates me, and I know infuriates fans of other teams too. Scottish Referees never play the correct amount of added time. Six or seven minutes would not have been unfair yesterday, but only three were added. Please note this is not an excuse and Celtic probably wouldn’t have scored anyway, but there is a point of principle here for all teams. Yesterday was just another example. Why are the SFA light years behind everyone else on seemingly everything?

So, after a flurry of seemingly co-ordinated, personal attacks on McCoist in the SMSM – he is still there.

Personally I thought there was an undue haste among Radio pundits yesterday to try and say everything is okay again simply because of a narrow win against Livingston.

I think we can say, for the moment at least, Hamilton Accies are where they belong. In fact, they are in their rightful place, a hard won rightful place!

Indeed. I was surprised at how decent a team they looked. Just about every Celtic fan I spoke to thought likewise. They also had a healthy support at the game.

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!

It Is Better To Offer No Excuse Than A Bad One
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.
