The question never asked to McCoist, or indeed Smith when he was on the new club board, is where do they think the money should come from to fund their idea of how Rangers should operate? If there was such a thing as a non-compliant sports hack in Scotland they could easily pin it down to ‘the money should just be there, just because it’s Rangers’. To spend the way they want to means someone, or some financial organisation to allow tens of millions to disappear without trace. Alternatively an elaborate tax avoidance scheme could be set up with the potential consequences being it hanging over Ibrox for years. The last resort is blatant tax evasion. None of this is the way to run a football club. Why doesn’t someone from the media have the spine to point that out to McCoist?

Listened to some of Radio Clyde earlier. Predictably, much of it surrounded the potential return to Ibrox of Kenny Miller…and Kris Boyd…and Craig Gordon (okay, he’s not been there a first time!). Why don’t they just go the whole hog and point out Frank Lampard, John Terry and Ashley Cole are all available as Bosman’s this summer!

I do wonder if Gough includes his pal Ally among those who have been doing what they like! He is also 100% spot on when he says Rangers are not the club he once knew! Then came the arrogance at the end, the ‘back to the top where we belong’ bit. No club in any league in the world ‘belongs’ anywhere. Such a notion belies what the game is about, which is success through on field sporting achievement. Do we ever hear clubs like Leeds Utd bleating every week that they ‘belong’ at the top of the EPL? Do we ever hear twice European Champions Nottingham Forest say the same?

On the subject of a possible Kenny Miller return to Ibrox. I love the way, at least in the media, that players like Miller and Boyd are discussed in a way as if they can’t go to any other club. Why can’t Miller go back to Easter Road for example? Butcher will be re-shaping the team and Hibs are in far better financial health than Rangers. Likewise why can’t Boyd go to Aberdeen?

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.
