That would be the same JJ who a few days ago was exclusively conjecturing that Johnston had bought King out.

Companies House Bombshell

“This Companies House bombshell has gone largely unreported in the SMSM. Colour me surprised. So how did Johnston acquire his significant control? One could make a cogent case for Johnston buying out King as it kills two birds with one stone”

Then exclusively conjecturing even further

“Is Sir Bribe & Lie behind the Johnston putsch? Will he step up to provide the £7.2m quantum required to keep the lights on? Or is Johnston going it alone with a view to raising this quantum at The Rinse & Dry Share Issue?
Developing story….”

From today’s shot in the dark. The “reader” even says it’s pure conjecture.

“Something happened on/about Nov 15th with respect to Johnston and the rest of the board. Was he told to basically put up or shut up with regards to shareholder loans? Looking back, Gilligan resigned (or was forced out?) from the Board on May 22, just days before the £3M payment to Sports Direct. Was he given an ultimatum to pony up some cash and did he step aside or was he forced out when he refused? And after seeing this back in May, did Johnston succumb to a similar demand in November to retain his board seat? There’s no proof one way or the other, but the circumstantial evidence is persuasive.”

It’s classic conspiracy theory stuff, a series of questions suggesting something, rather than any substantiated statements.

Former Rangers favourite Gordon Smith has hit out at the Ibrox board for their bitter response to Derek McInnes’ snub.
Gers released a statement on Thursday night after learning the Aberdeen boss had turned down the chance to return to his old club as manager.
It said they had “endorsed” the 46-year-old’s decision to stay put as they hinted he was not up to managing “a massive club like Rangers”.
The statement added: “We continue to consider candidates but will only appoint someone in whom we have full confidence and who feels he is ready for the job.”
But those words have perplexed former striker Smith – who also previously served at Ibrox as director of football.
He told Sky Sports News: “I find the whole thing astonishing.
“It seems strange that it takes so long to make the appointment, then when Derek turns it down they come out with this statement saying it was probably the right thing that he stays at Pittodrie because really they were trying to assess whether he was the right person for the job and the fact he is staying at Pittodrie proves he isn’t the right person.
“It’s almost like they are saying he didn’t have the bottle for such a big role.
“It absolutely is an embarrassment for the Rangers board. They are trying to say now that he wasn’t the number one candidate.
“I just don’t understand how they can say that.”

I think it’s reasonable to assume that Rangers would have offered Derek McInnes personal terms which at least matched those which he has at Aberdeen so there have to be other reasons that he did not want the job. I just thought I would have a think about what those might be and jot a few down.

1, He is happy at Aberdeen and doesn’t actually want to go anywhere.

2, The other club did not want his backroom staff as part of a package and he likes working with them.

3, Rangers would not pay the compensation so he would have had to breach his contact and then be sued by Aberdeen. He was not willing to do that.

4, He did not want to work under a Director of Football. Or the specific one at Rangers.

5, He did not want to work for the Rangers board, either not liking or not trusting them. Possibly both.

6, He did not want to manage a team whose support turn on people, and whose expectations far exceed reality.

7, He knew that he would have to seriously re-build the squad and knew there simply weren’t the resources to do it properly. (See 6)

8, He did not want to put his family through the consequences of perceived failure (See 6)

I’m sure other people can come up with more good reasons for declining the post. The point is, there are a lot of them.

The only plus seems to be “But we’re Rangers and we’re massive”.

The problem with the plus side is … well it isn’t really true.

Is that the £29m that was mentioned in the BDO update EJ.

I am neither Derek McInnes or an Aberdeen supporter.

Sorry if anyone is shocked by that revelation.

However if I was I would find that Rangers statement insulting and condescending.

The position of Rangers manager requires an ability to win football matches and the mentality to cope with the demanding off-pitch environment that goes with being the Rangers manager. This is a critical aspect of our assessment of any candidate during the interview process.

After the two games against Aberdeen, we requested permission to engage with their manager to assess his readiness and willingness to consider the Rangers position. This was declined. We were subsequently made aware by Aberdeen’s statement that, at this stage in his career, it would be best for him to remain in his current post. We endorse that position because moving to a massive club like Rangers is a big step with concomitant risk. We continue to consider candidates but will only appoint someone in whom we have full confidence and who feels he is ready for the job.

Absolutely disgraceful.
