Media outlets reporting that TRFC have bid £1.8M for a striker from Preston North End. The PNE Manager confirms a bid has been made, but does not say how much, although he said it has not been accepted or rejected.  

So given a summer of free signings, and signings where cross border rules mean minimal compensation, suddenly what would be a substantial fee in Scottish terms seems to be on the table.  Surely Rangers are not just going to spend money that should be kept for something else? As others have pointed out, there is still going to be a shortfall this season even taking the most optimistic view. Either that or they know a player is going to be sold.

Personally I was delighted Celtic were asked to participate in such a prestigious pre-season tournament, and I hope they are invited again next year.  I do not believe there is a single club in Scotland who would not have accepted the same invite, and subsequently postponed a game.

==================================

One man’s moans are another man’s valid points – I’m sure you’ll agree with that.

This morning’s Daily Record has an article about Stewart Regan, talking about his integrity and his job being on the line. While to many of us that type of article is 4 years too late, it will come as no surprise the tone of the article is that Rangers have been wronged.

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.
