Recent posters have made us all aware that SevcoRangers do not have a list of their “titles or trophies” on the official website.

I wonder what the reason for that is?

In keeping with the “claim” to be the same Rangers, i couldn’t help but spit my tea out laughing when i read the follow following on the site

…”Rangers, under the watchful eye of their match secretary William Wilton, uniquely won every single League game in the 1898-99 season.
Eighteen games, eighteen victories, a maximum 36 points. They scored 79 goals at an average of more than four a game, conceding just 18.
Runners-up Hearts were 10 points adrift in the days when a victory was worth only two.
Rangers began with a 6-2 annihilation of Partick Thistle. The captain Robert Hamilton, who still holds the club record for Old Firm matches with 32 goals against Celtic, scored a hat-trick.
Hamilton, a schoolmaster, was to find the net a further 18 times that season.
With 10 straight victories under their belt, Rangers’ away game at Hibernian was the crunch. Hibs were being touted as the only serious rivals for the title and looked like it when they took a 2-0 lead.
Rangers squared the game in the second-half then conceded another goal. As the match see-sawed, Hamilton came to the rescue to make it 3-3.
With just seconds to go, Rangers were awarded a penalty. Up stepped Neil to ram the ball home. They had won with the last kick of the match”.

I wonder i
Who the “referee” was, and how did he get appointed to the job and that particular game and is his grandchild and great grandchild referees today ?

Turns out it was the River Plate

But who is their client/clients who own the shares


River and Mercantile was formed in 1881 when the River Plate Trust Loan and Agency Company was incorporated. This company administered various companies in South America and was succeeded in 1961 by the River Plate and Mercantile Trust Ltd.

This company subsequently became River and Mercantile Trust Plc in 1962. By 1994 the company had become synonymous with longevity, integrity and product innovation, managing five investment trusts with a total of £400m under management.

Between 1994 and 1996 Pacific Investments acquired a 100 per cent interest in River and Mercantile and recruited a management team from HSBC to launch a new open ended investment division.

The investment trust contracts were sold to leading London based investment houses but Pacific Investments retained the name and focussed on developing the new investment division, a specialist UK equities fund management business, River and Mercantile Investment Management Ltd (RAMIM).

In 1999 RAMIM was floated on the London Stock Exchange and changed its name to Liontrust Asset Management Plc. Since flotation Pacific has placed down its original 75 per cent holding.

Pacific Investments retained the River and Mercantile name, utilising it purely as a holding company for a number of its fund management activities.

River and Mercantile Asset Management LLP (R&M) was formed in 2006.


Oh, oh !!

Cue the Celtic [chinese] conspiracies surfacing again.

Pacific Investments

Pacific… = Celtic…=… dermott (under lawwell’s instruction) – buying Sevco to keep Celtic on top to prevent
Rangers* from “getting back” to their rightful place n the SPFL premiership!

You read it here first!

Attachment Dave King Oldco
Re Tom English and his recent Tweets. Someone just posted this to him, stating they are happy to acknowledge Rangers as the same club as long as King follows up on this vow. To be fair to English he agrees with the poster it is a fair point.

The point is Tom English is happy to ‘agree’ with people who provide such evidence on Twitter.

what he is not willing to do, is agree with like minded callers on radio shows 
nor is he willing to state in print (newspaper columns) that Sevco and Rangers are two seperate clubs and that Sevco is a new club.

he is a coward who doesn’t want to end up like Brittny!
