Comment on Where now for the Judicial Panel Protocol? by nickmcguinness.

My dad was at the Celtic End that day and knew nothing of the disaster until he came home and saw it on the news. He was deeply upset, as we all were. We knew it could just as easily have happened at the Celtic End.
I’ve been in scary crushes in the old Jungle at Celtic Park, although I thankfully missed out on the Janefield Street incident when a charge by police horses almost caused a catastrophe.
Only a strange set of circumstances stopped me taking up an offer from a Juventus fan to go to Heysel Stadium in Brussels for the tragic European Cup Final. He had secured two tickets from a Belgian fan for the area where the horror occurred but, due to my late call-off, he ended up at the other end of the stadium. A lucky escape for both of us.
Then there is sheer decency and respect for the dead.
All of these are reasons why I — and 99.99% of Celtic fans I know — would ever countenance any show of disrespect whatsoever towards the tragic victims of Stairway 13.
May they rest in peace.
And may those attempting to use their deaths to score cheap points hang their heads in shame.

Where now for the Judicial Panel Protocol?
The report from Sky’s “City” correspondent, who was fed lines by MediaHouse, states: “I understand that the consortium led by Charles Green, which took control of the Scottish outfit in a cut-price £5.5m deal to acquire its assets in June, is poised to hire Cenkos Securities, the broking firm, to handle the flotation. Cenkos is one of a number of brokers which have held talks with Mr Green’s consortium in recent weeks, and it remains possible that another firm will be appointed if an agreement cannot be reached, according to insiders.”

Cenkos look a respectable bunch. My bet is that Allenby Capital will get the gig.
Cue fairy stories and boiler rooms.
£20million? Some of the Rangers fans who post online may give the impression that they’re gullible idiots but, by and large, they’re a stingy bunch.
I think the real fun is about to begin . . .

Dear JC,

It’s a Studio C spoof. Very funny, though.

EasyJambo and tykebhoy,

Looks like Paul Murray has signed a form in May confirming that no security or floating charge can be granted over Murray Park without the prior consent of SportScotland . . .
Four months after the company gave Mike Ashley security over Murray Park, Edmiston House and the Albion Car Park.
I can see this getting nasty.
Welching on loans, a lying crook in charge, warnings that any investment is unlikely to make a profit.
Yup, I can just see the institutional investors queueing up to put more dosh into this car crash..
Now is the summer of their discontent (and discount tents).

RE Ashley and Craig Whyte,

Their connection goes back to the founding and funding of the Sevco scam:

Whyte and Jim Park did a deal with him that saw Ashley take almost 9% of the Sevco 5088/Scotland shares.
What kind of hard bargain did Ashley drive for that?
And if there is any type of “contingent liability” on the properties, he is in a very good position to find out exactly what it is . . . if he doesn’t already know.
Ashley was in from the start.
The Easdales represent the Blue Pitch/Margarita clan that were in from the start.
The people controlling the Rangers board have a vested interest in preventing any outsiders from having a look “under the bonnet” at what has happened at Ibrox over the last two and a half years.
All the Three Bears, King and others can do is threaten an EGM and hope they get 51% of the shares to vote them off.
If that looks likely, RIFC will go into administration/liquidation with ALL of its assets compromised.
What a mess!
The atmosphere at Ibrox tomorrow night could be quite nasty.

A Sanity Clause for Xmas?
That statement: ““The business strategy remains for the club to keep Ibrox Stadium and Murray Park free from any kind of security over bank debt” should ring a bell.
RIFC have boasted on many occasions that they don’t have any bank debt . . .
because no bank will give them credit.
So when they say that Ibrox and Murray Park WON’T be used as security over bank debt it does not take a huge leap of presumption to believe that Ibrox and Murray Park CAN’T be used for security.

A Sanity Clause for Xmas?
Also worth bearing in mind that Rangers FC Group Ltd, Craig Whyte’s “holding company” (previously Wavetower) had a Fixed and Floating Charge recorded on March 24, 2012, in favour of Liberty Corporate Ltd (director: Craig’s dad Thomas) “Over The Undertaking and All Property and Assets Present and Future, Including Goodwill, Bookdebts, Uncalled Capital, Buildings, Fixtures, Fixed Plant & Machinery”.
This was recorded before the Sevco deal was done.
Now, what “property and Assets” of RFC PLC RIP could Rangers FC Group lay claim to?
