Comment on LNS – A Summary by StevieBC.

neepheid 17th December 2015 at 7:46 pm #… Reputation is everything for a barrister. Being represented as a bumbling fool by your client is about as bad as it gets. I expect Murray to issue a retraction very soon.
Absolutely nh !
And by issuing that public quote, Murray has shirley flagged up a vote of no-confidence for this ‘error-prone’ QC, so RIFC/TRFC cannot instruct him ever again.

Which leaves the unfortunate QC to demand a public retraction and apology ?
Or will the QC add another meeting to the ‘Rangers’ fixture list this season – in court that is – and demand damages ?

I’ll go for a grovelling ‘clarification’ from Murray in due course…

LNS – A Summary
Extracted from DR article today;
“…The Rangers director says that while the QC in last week’s court case made a mistake in saying it was paid back already, he says it will be repaid when the right documentation is in place.
Talking to STV Murray said: “First of all to clear up what happened in court last week, that was just a simple mistake which was made by our QC. He didn’t have the facts to his fingertips.”…

So Murray is publicly stating that a highly paid – and probably quite bright – QC just ‘made a wrong assumption’ [?] that the GBP5M had been repaid – when in fact it hadn’t ?

Would anyone – never mind a QC – make a statement like that – and in court – unless they had reliable proof / reassurances which they could trust ?

Good job BP.
It’s no effort to add SFM – or any other website for that matter – to their distribution list.
And nobody would consider that a club is ‘endorsing’ any of the recipients. So what is the risk ?
You would think the clubs would appreciate – and be grateful for – wider coverage of their communications ?
Keep at them BP…they’ll eventually learn…I hope… 09

LNS – A Summary
Wrt to any further assistance to aid TRFC’s entry into the top league…

Let’s take a worst case scenario.
TRFC is promoted, and at their every away game there is a hostile atmosphere, and possibly trouble inside and outside the ground.
Ibrox becomes a fortress, and all visiting teams are subjected to even more hostile treatment, offensive/illegal singing.
Basically the SPFL games involving TRFC become poisonous affairs with associated trouble.
Police and politicians eventually speak out – and maybe even the SMSM comment on how the SPFL has deteriorated.

Will this be the catalyst for Regan and Doncaster to go, and for some real structural change at the SPFL/SFA ?
Will it have to get so bad that Hampden just can’t look the other way anymore ?
Maybe a subsequent threat of withdrawn public funding might force the issue ?

Does anyone believe that the first season with TRFC in the top league is going to be a positive experience for all concerned ?

Just a wild idea…

But, what if King declared himself bankrupt?
[Well in a court recently, he did claim he was ‘penniless’].

Of course anyone who knows of the glib and shameless one would assume King would have assets hidden, or in his wife’s name – a la wee Bazza?

Would bankruptcy effectively kill off the TOP sanctions?

At this point it seems that King’s reputation is ruined in Scotland – and with the bears and even with the SMSM?

King’s time is up playing charades as ‘the Rangers saviour’, and he must – you would think – be thinking about preserving his remaining wealth as he approaches retirement…?  09

Mibbees after 20 years of failure, the national team and the SFA don’t deserve a dedicated, national stadium?

And Hampden is simply not worth keeping as a football venue for mainly sentimental reasons, IMO.

CO, I think Phil’s scoop about the manner of Nicholl’s appointment deserves a: Wow Just Wow!
It displays how dysfunctional the management structure at Ibrox has become, and you would think, it is a massive red flag.
[Apart from having no cash.]

I also have my fingers and toes crossed that in 2018 my £20 bet on TRFC finishes bottom 6 comes in – with the help of an Admin. event.

[Thanks to fellow Bampots for the tip: interestingly Sky wouldn’t accept a £50 bet for a 150/1 long shot…]

All the best for 2018 Bampots!

And just have to add this headline from the esteemed DR, so it must be true;

“Bluenoses out of joint as Rangers pub to be turned into gay sauna’s bar”

Couldn’t possibly comment on the article…but a couple of sentences did jump out as sounding familiar;

“…Annie Millers was one of Glasgow’s most hardcore Rangers haunts and it was a real shock for a lot of fans when it closed last year.
A lot of drinkers were hoping that someone might rescue the pub so it could reopen as it was before. This definitely won’t happen now…

Guessing it’s quiet as the Bampots have been out watching the footy…or getting dragged around the shops by their better half for the sales ?!

Wife told me last night about the Dembele ‘sale’.
Immediate reaction was that it was nonsense from the SMSM.

There ‘could’ be some truth in it: e.g. an off-the-record tip from either CFC or Dembele’s agent, perhaps to simply instigate a bidding war ?

But, my initial reaction to any big story is to always doubt the SMSM’s veracity: the lamb munchers were exposed a long time ago…and it’s a surprise that the DR in particular is still on sale in hard copy format. 

If he is sold for X millions, how will the SMSM / Level42 spin that as ‘bad news’ for CFC…and bad for Scottish football ?  22
