‘He (Dave King) reportedly invested £20 million of “his own
money” in Rangers over a decade ago.
Not to mention (I quote from your good self):

According to the Club’s 2009 annual report, he also held more
than three million shares in the related company Murray
Sports Limited, ‘as an authorised representative of
Metlika Trading Ltd’, a company in the British Virgin Islands.
In one of the many twists in King’s battle with SARS, it would
appear that his mother Agnes now owns the shares in Murray
Sports Ltd, thought to be worth some £1.5m. UK
newspapers Dave King, Rangers football club, and the South
African Revenue Service reported late last year that the shares
had been transferred in what SARS saw as a bid to avoid tax.

RTC. If you are talking about the sorts of numbers of free tickets being given away (probably like you I read online circa 11,000 for one game) then I just don’t see it. If Chucky is giving away free tickets, I don’t see how it can be on that scale. If he was giving them away to schools and the like yes, but not as a clandestine operation.

Presumably Paul Hartley will be under severe pressure after losing heavily to a team that lost to a team that lost to Deveronvale?

(apologies to any Deveronvale/Paul Hartley fans)

Kilmarnock boss to report referee to SFA over ‘sarcastic’ remark

“I don’t know what he said but it was something flippant and I
will be reporting him to (head of referee development) John
Fleming as well because I am not happy about it.”


Hmmm…I’m no lawyer but I think even I can spot the flaw with this complaint.

With acknowledgement to Angela Haggerty for bringing this to my attention:

Old Firm documentary German tv 1974: http://youtu.be/19j95pGNzI8

A fascinating insight into Glasgow in 1974. Jimmy Reid is notable for his incredibly accurate predictions of what was happening but, what I take from this is the over reliance of the power of the ‘Old Firm’. 

Scottish fitba’ is immeasurably improved by not having an all pervading ‘Old Firm’!

Somers’ sending begging letters according to Keith Jackson

It’s easily done. Too much champers loosens inhibitions.

I have to say, I thought Keith’s tweet on the subject was soooperb! 😆

What Keith (and other ‘succulents’) fail to acknowledge is that the improvement in the top flight clubs (Celtic aside) is precisely because Rangers aren’t there skewing the league with their arms race mentality to the transfer market. 

Clubs no longer need to try to keep up with Rangers fraudulent spending (and Celtic certainly haven’t been trying to buy success) so have been able to spend money on what’s best for them.

The nuclear winter was the one that Sir David Murray presided over!

Rangers manager Ally McCoist braced for Ibrox fire-sale:

“Rangers announced last week that the club had made an operating loss of £8.3  million (believed to be a world record for a third-tier club).”
