Does anyone know who will be presenting the Scottish Cup to the winning captain later this month ?…
Would be a nice gesture if one of the remaining Lisbon Lions was to present the trophy, to mark the 50th anniversary of Lisbon. …
Sounds like a crazy idea…but the crazy aspect is that this suggestion – I doubt – would even appear on the radar at Hampden.
Stevie, it just sounds like a Celtic fan’s idea, which it is. There may be some mileage (as you say, to remind people that Scottish football does have some meaningful heritage) in this particular final of having the Aberdeen captain from 1983 and one of Celtic’s fit and able Lions to do the honours for whichever of their teams wins. Better than a sponsor or the current/past president of the SFA.

It seems that Club 1872 are still thinking of themselves as a supporters group rather than a Ltd Co (a Community Interest Company if memory serves) which owns 6% of a PLC, has around 9,000 paying members funding it monthly and is reputed to have something in the region of £1m sitting in it’s bank account. They really need to consider their public statements a bit more.
Homunculus, as I think you’ll know, the structure they created for for Club 1872 included a group company called Supporters’ Statement Limited. This probably unnecessary structure seems to have been intended to separate and protect the core business from any nasty fallout from a Generation Z millennial’s version of the Millbank rapid attack and rebuttal unit. The insipid statement you copied will be scoffed at by many and lauded by a number of fed up Rangers fans but will make absolutely no difference to anything. It was presumably authorised by a combination of the recently appointed Club 1872 directors and the company Secretary of Rangers International Football Club. As to who wrote it… well it does seem to be in a style that a previous TRFC director of very limited tenure was familiar with.

Accountability via Transparency.
Easyjambo @21:59 , couldn't agree more. CFC should have settled for condemning the behaviour of the bigots. The additional comments were unnecessary and showed a lack of class – almost as bad as a former trfc statement scribe Graham.
JPP: Perverting Justice?
This fiasco has arisen because the SPFL has a legacy commitment from the SPL to play later stage League Cup ties involving RFC 2012 and Celtic FC at Hampden. A simple get out of this was to claim force majeure in respect of the liquidation of one the parties central to that commitment. The SPFL surely couldn't be held accountable for a member club going bust?

Why, oh why, is Gerrard falling for that WATP crap. Rangers were miles ahead of Aberdeen yesterday, why not settle for saying that? Maybe he needs Mikey Srewart as his PR rather than L5.

What’s with the sexist, jokey support of the racist thug Terry?
You have to laugh at the idea that Murray would just have borrowed the money if he had not used EBT’s.June 2004 the debt was £74 million.December 2004 £51 million is raised by a rights issue. The only trouble is, Murray paid for that. And where did the money come from?RBoS of course!So he borrowed and used EBT’s at the same time.That’s like Lance Armstrong not only cheating with drugs, but also using a motorbike.
