From the “quiet man” Regan on the semi-final shambles.

Maybe then we will see if there is such a things as fan power, what chance of another season in the 3rd tier?
=====================
The rules as they stand will get them promoted (assuming they are 15/25 points clear and can stand the points deduction), I just can’t see any way that could be stopped. It’s an absolute disgrace, and I’ve no doubt that the rules will be changed to ensure it never happens again, but only once TRFC are safely promoted.

how quickly after a SC semi gubbing will the admin button be pushed?
============
Very quickly, is my guess. If there is going to be an admin at all, it has to be before the end of the season. The Championship could be a real uphill struggle with any sort of points deduction.

Resolution 12 & The Broken Bond
The Celtic Board have a huge shareholder majority behind them regarding any actions they take, or don't take. The Board can argue convincingly that any financial loss suffered by Celtic over the Res12 issue, is more than compensated for by the continued existence of a football environment in which the PLC makes pots of money.

That football environment is predicated upon the continuation of the "Old Firm" at any price. Part of that price (in the Board's view) is allowing the deep corruption at the heart of the SFA to continue unreformed. 

I am not an advocate for any of this, far from it. I walked away years ago, over Ogilvie's enthronement for a second term as SFA President, unopposed by Celtic. That episode, forgotten no doubt by most on here, was the writing on the wall for me.

Everything that has happened since  has confirmed me in my view that the Celtic Board have no intention whatsoever of rocking the boat. I can understand why. But it sticks in my craw, and always will. 

Honesty has no price, in my world. To say that Celtic were totally unaware of the contents of the 5 Way Agreement? Sorry chaps on the Board, but I'm not buying that one.

These days I watch St Roch's when I can. That's football for me now. A breath of clean air.

 

 

 


Is Regan a DIDDY?
This is worth a read on the Morelos transfer saga- apologies if already posted.

Is Regan a DIDDY?
I see that Sir Walter is being touted for the Scotland manager vacancy. I can fully understand why the deadly duo of Jack and Jackson are pushing this so hard.
TRFC are (as always) in some financial difficulty, despite having a squad containing galacticos in the £8m bracket. They need to get the paper value of that squad even higher, to encourage the Real Rangers Men to come forward with donations (sorry, loans). Their children’s inheritance will seem so much safer if the club has some valuable tradeable assets on its books.
This is where Walter comes in. A few international caps can do wonders for the value of even the most pitiful dumpling. Just watch, as caps are doled out to every player in the TRFC squad who has a Scottish qualification. Look on in wonder as TRFC squad value is doubled or trebled in a matter of months.
That’s the plan, folks. Desperate men, desperate measures, and all that. Shame about the better players edged out of the Scotland reckoning, an even bigger shame for the Tartan Army, who will see any prospects of Euro/World Cup qualification go up in smoke.
By the way, I agree entirely with Homunculus regarding JJ’s latest. Whether true or not, it is a disgraceful piece.

I may be wrong but I understand the loans to be viewed as money taken from the company

That HMRC advice relates to the common situation where directors borrow money from their company. Here RIFC (or TRFC?) has borrowed money from its directors.
