Sorry but I can’t’ get worked up over this one.
The Pars have stated they brought the game into disrepute by failing to pay taxes and going into Admin.
While it may have been nice to see it in clear language, the implication is the Rangers similarly brought the game into disrepute and then some.
This implication is a strong as anything I have seen from countless other clubs.
As for the Big Lie they are morally no better or worse than the other 40 clubs who have remained silent to date.
Bigger beasts could have said more. Turnbull Hutton of another smallish Fife club spoke out but at the end of the day, when he needed it, the bigger clubs shat it.
I am more concerned over the lack of  action and moral fibre from Celtic, Hearts, the Don’s and Hibs than the Pars.

The question should be why are T’Rangers interested in Jamie Walker in the first place, regardless of the price?

He was blowing a bit hot and cold last season and has since gone off the boil along with showing a questionable attitude.

Pedro let go two similar type players in McKay (£6m valuation) and O’Halloran and by all accounts he seems to want to replace them with Walker.

The addition of Jack, Dorrans, Alves and the other new lads don’t make T’Rangers look any better than they were last year. I don’t see the addition of Walker making much difference to their squad.

Its become a big blue squirrel of a story.

I did however say some time back that T’Rangers would resort to type by attempting to weaken the opposition by trying to buy and unsettle players of those around them. The MSM are of course only too keen to help. 

People down Tynie may have issues with Levein but on this issue I am hoping his stubborness and GTF attitude to T’Rangers is seen as a key asset to the club.

Unless a decent amount of smakeroonies are offered in cash and up front, Walker can wait for the time he can sign a pre-contract  and sit the season on the U20’s bench for all I care.

Point 1 goes to Sandy Bryson’s evidence. When it was stated that Sandy Bryson interpreted registration rules in a way that came as a surprise to most in Scottish Football, McKenzie commented – “It was an interpretation that came as a surprise to me too.”

But even when given the opportunity to challenge it he meekly accepted the construction – which of course is just a lot of bollocks. 

[86] Evidence was given by Alexander Bryson, Head of Registrations at the SFA, whodescribed the registration process. During the course of his evidence he explained that, once aplayer had been registered with the SFA, he remained registered unless and until his registrationwas revoked. Accordingly, even if there had been a breach of the SFA registration procedures,such as a breach of SFA Article 12.3, the registration of a player was not treated as being invalidfrom the outset, and stood unless and until it was revoked.
[87] Mr McKenzie explained to us that SPL Rule D1.13 had hitherto been understood to meanthat if, at the time of registration, a document was not lodged as required, the consequence wasthat a condition of registration was broken and the player automatically became ineligible to playin terms of SPL Rule D1.11. He accepted however that there was scope for a differentconstruction of the rule, to the effect that, as the lodging of the document in question was acondition of registration, the registration of the player would be liable to revocation, with theconsequence that the player would thereafter become ineligible to play. He accepted that noprovision of the Rules enabled the Board of the SPL retrospectively to terminate the registrationof the player. It became apparent from his submissions that Mr McKenzie was not pressing for afinding that Issue 3(c), together with the concluding words of Issue 3(b), had been proved.[88] In our opinion, this was a correct decision by Mr McKenzie. There is every reason whythe rules of the SFA and the SPL relating to registration should be construed and appliedconsistently with each other. Mr Bryson’s evidence about the position of the SFA in this regardwas clear. In our view, the Rules of the SPL, which admit of a construction consistent with thoseof the SFA, should be given that construction. All parties concerned – clubs, players andfootballing authorities – should be able to proceed on the faith of an official register. This meansthat a player’s registration should generally be treated as standing unless and until revoked.

I know earlier I was moaning about Strachan not picking Scots based players but just realised he has Steven Whittaker in his squad.

Just watch how slow and ineffective he was at Hamilton’s third goal at the weekend. Not saying the goal wouldn’t have been scored given Hamiltons movement and passing but watch how slow and lumbering SW is when tracking back and not putting in any effort when the ball was played through the gap by Docherty.

Another player that should now be giving way to younger players at International level to prepare for the future.

Fair play to him as I am sure SW will turn up and do what he can for the cause but it is the manager’s at fault for his excessive loyalty to auld timers and under performers.

Indeed. And that was my other thought.
Even if Mark Allen does a good job T”Rangers wouldn’t see any cash for any upcoming talent (internal or bought in)  for a god number of years.
To date a good few lads showing talent have been allowed to leave to keep the lights on.
At present the only prospect they have is McRorie who I think has stepped up and performed well when asked.He certainly has confidence and could develop into a decent centre back playing with the likes of Souttar for Scotland.

I am sure the thought will have crossed other’s minds but will say it anyway.
Celtics ‘free money’ from the VVD  transfer is more than T’Rangers stated  loan requirements to keep the lights on for the next year or two.
Thats the size of the gap between Celtic and the rest of us.

Thought that may be the case but was wondering if someone would be trying to get ahead of the game.
