The conditions you lay out for moving forward are spot on. It is quite incredible after all that’s happened we have the Chairman of one of our biggest clubs saying we should forget all about it and move on. I wonder if his very successful business had been cheated in a similar way since 2000 he would be so forgiving. Imagine it was discovered another housebuilder had used illicit means to purchase land in prime areas at a cost prohibitive to his company, making tens of millions in profit along the way. If you are reading this Mr Milne, just think about that. 

I don’t think I’ve ever felt as sickened about the governance of our game more than I do this very day, and believe me there are many other days to compete with. In terms of media coverage the national broadcaster is triumphantly announcing FOR THE THIRD TIME IN THREE WEEKS that Rangers will pay / already have paid the loan to Sports Direct. Enough said.

motor red 17th December 2015 at 9:20 am #dear, up the hoops. i suggest you reign it in a bit, where have i ever suggested that i would like to see my club roll over?

Motor Red, just getting the chance to respond.

My post was not directed at you or any other Dons fan. It was an attempt to communicate with those SPFL Chairs and CEO’s who may on the off chance read this blog. Apologies if it came over any other way. My main point is if they all fall over themselves for Rangers the way Stewart Milne appears to be, then Rangers will be all they have left. The Rangers fans through their misplaced anger against all other clubs will back their team in great numbers. If those in charge of the other clubs expect THEIR fans to ignore the ridiculous finger of blame the Rangers fans are pointing then there will in my view be a significant number who will walk away and maybe never return.

They should be very careful what they wish for, because it might just come true.

motor red 17th December 2015 at 4:51 am #well i have just seen my reply from AFC, ”dont believe everything you read in the paper”thats it. my post was mainly a copy and paste job to be honest. i did reply.  i do hope mr milne will come out and refute the statement,as this and to many others looks like mr milne is flying a kite on mr kings behalf. thanks for the reply ,all the best to you in the xmas and new year.

While the reply they sent you may be true in a general sense, it in no way addresses whether or not Milne is quoted accurately, and what prompted him to say it. 

I have no idea if SPFL Chairs or CEO’s read this blog, but if they do all I’d like to say is this. If the way ahead is for Rangers to always be on top with capacity crowds, lording it over your club then you are welcome to it. I, like many others, will need to seriously think whether I should spend a penny more on such a corruptly managed product. Of course, should you insist on a proper punishment for Rangers past cheating, and demand a full apology for it, then of course a club like that could be an asset to the league. To summarise though, If you want to just lie there and let Rangers trample all over you, then you’re welcome to it. Why don’t you just hand every trophy to Rangers at the start of the season and be done with it. Better still, perhaps you would be happy playing Rangers at your ground in front of a capacity crowd consisting only of Rangers fans, because that’s the way you’re heading.

I believe the Stewart being referred to by DCK in the alleged letter will be the Rangers CEO.

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!

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.
