As I said before, The Rangers end was definately uncovered at the 1965 Scottish Cup final – I was there. I still not 100% sure, but, if I remember correctly it was covered when Pele played there in ’66?
We already established from cup final video evidence that the cover was installed some time in late 1967 or early 1968.

Keep hearing rangers made a £14M loss this year.

I thought it was just over £18M – £14M operating loss + a further £4M for non recurring costs.

Anyone confirm?

You’re right.
Although Stockbridge has implied several times that the £14m loss was inflated by the non-recurring costs, it is clear from the accounts (p22) that these are not included in the £14m figure.

So Capt Mather and two of his Ship’s Officers have jumped overboard as the iceberg looms ever closer.

Is a bus driver now at the helm of the Titanic?

Big gav
Thanks for pointing that out
I stand corrected
Only 1 wee thing When does anything this mob say equate to the Truth 😉
Anything they say has to be picked over with a fine-toothed comb and taken with several bags of salt. ‘Glib and shameless’ describes the lot of them.

The Lost Voice of the Armageddon Virus
I see that Dave King’s carefully crafted statement from yesterday:
“All of our season ticket money will be invested in the football squad”

has been dutifully reported in the Herald and Evening Times by eminent journalist Christopher Jack as:
“Dave King has vowed to plough all season ticket cash into the transfer kitty in the coming weeks”
which is not what he said AT ALL.

I think King’s statement is more notable for what it DOESN’T say – noticeably missing is any promise that additional money will be provided by King and his fellow-directors to fund the expected full-scale squad rebuild.

Of course, any “journalist” worthy of the name could easily pick up a phone and ask Mr King to explain his statement, but for some reason this never happens…

THAT Debate, and the Beauty of Hindsight

The Bampot view was that it wasn’t whether the EBT scheme was legal or iIlegal but the fact that loan details and side letters were not included in contracts provided to the SFA that broke the rules
Meaning the Bampot view was
Titles should be stripped irrespective of whether EBTs were legal sa there are numerous examples of the SFA punishing clubs for not disclosing full details of player contracts

Indeed, LNS found RFC(IL) GUILTY and fined them £250,000, so the “no sporting advantage” argument cannot logically be based on the freedom of other clubs to do the same thing.

Good Try Mr. McKenzie

Impeccable logic, Cluster One.

– “Rangers Football Club don’t lose 4-1”
– “We have just lost 4-1”

It therefore follows:
– “We are not Rangers Football Club”

And who knows, maybe the statement attributed to Warburton and commented on earlier today, is a sign that the PR penny may have dropped, and signals a drastic re-think??


John, I think you missed the point that the Warbmeister’s statement (“Joey Barton can inspire younger players to the next level”) was made back in May this year, shortly after his signing.

In the absence of a Stat. person replying I have worked out that after 232 games in the Championship, 12 out of 17 penalties awarded were to the SFAs favoured club. That is 70% of all penalties go to TRFC.

According to the figures you posted earlier, it’s 12 out of 29 (12 to TRFC and 17 to all the rest put together). Still suspicious though!
Also it’s 116 games (you counted twice – two teams play in each match!).

OMG! Just seen I have a photo of Spiers as my avatar.
How do I choose a different one?
