John Clark stated his surprise that Zebra Finance were involved in the season ticket financing, as he noted the company was in administration.

Indeed it was, but was “acquired” by a Leeds based company, TRENT Finance in November 2013. Zebra was in trouble due to it’s involvement in the provision of finance for the purchase of faulty breast implants.

Guess what? The directors of both companies are the same!

One thing that puzzles me about the latest Ibrox saga is the deafening silence of the Blue Knights st al Are they quietly concocting a rescue plan of their own? Or is Dave King their mouthpiece? Methinks they are like hyenas, lurking in the long grass, ready to slink in once the fat cats have killed the wildebeest, stripped the carcass and left the bones.

Sorry, I should have included that Jock made one stipulation about entrants for his race. EVERYBODY HAD TO BE OVER 70 !!!

Last week someone posted about the article written by Glenn Gibbons in the aftermath of the Chelsea/Atletico game . Gibbons told a story about remarks made by Jock Stein before the 1967 Euoropean final. The article reminded me of an interview on BBC Grandstand, before the 1970 semi final versus Leeds United. Jock was interviewed by David Coleman along these lines =

DC. Do you not feel you are at a disadvantage against Leeds?

JS Why should we?

DC. Well, Leeds play in the English First Division, and have highly competitive games every week.

JS Put it this way. I could organise a100 yard race every other week at Celtic Park, with a prize of 1000 pounds. Nobody would break the world record, but the competition would be tremendous.
End of discussion. Needless to say Celtic won both legs.

I also suspect that the assignation of ” ra deeds” would provoke an angry response in some quarters !

Is it lawful for one “director” to use the assets of a company as security, to finance a private venture, without the agreement of his fellow directors?.

We used to have a saying, in my home “town” of Baillieston, that the only place you could throw snowballs at the Orange Walk, was Shotts!
Hence the reason  the television masts were built there.

If the “administration” rumour gains any momentum, how long will it take for the league reconstruction debate to resurface?
