First chance to log in tonight. Celtic have of course, as Upthehoops pointed out well, no reason to feel ashamed for being reinstated. It was absolutely nothing to do with them. It was quite pleasing to see the self awareness of a lot of Celtic fans on here admitting immediately that they were not there on any sporting merit. But as many have said rules are rules. I think they are harsh in this case. But bearing in mind the rules of the competition when the teams entered, the only logical conclusion is that Celtic are through to the next round on merit. Sporting merit too really, considering the ever precious away goal!

George Soros made over one billion dollars in one day by anticipating black Wednesday in 1992. Such foresight, market understanding and investor savvy is tantamount to genius. If he invests in Rangers I will eat my own face.

The Way it Works
I don’t know if this is off topic or not, but I’d like to pose the question; how do members of this community think Scottish independence, a yes or a no vote, might affect the game?

The Way it Works
Big Pink,

Given how damaging the revelations were to the Rangers brand and public perception, why would Rangers have leaked such information?

The Vice Closes
Congratulations to the Scotland team tonight for a great result, looked like a goal would never come due to that intrepid crossbar but it’s great to see a Scotland side look as accomplished as we have recently. Just think where we’d be if we’d kept our concentration in the last minute against England!

The Vice Closes

”Now on what is objectionable to others: songs that are inward celebrating might cause offence to others but they are the ones taking offence, it is not being offered to or aimed at them. It is something intolerant in them that sparks the offence taken.”

By your criteria above, it would be perfectly acceptable for a group of fans to turn up at a football ground singing “Ode to Isis” and as long as it was inward looking, it would be the fault of the rest of the crowd if they were offended. 

I usually read your posts with interest and respect your views, but I find this stance ridiculous. 

Time for Scots Government to Take Bull by the Horns
Upthehoops, thanks for your response. I’ve recognised my club’s weaknesses on here many times, but the justification given for support of clubs in Europe here is always that they are the Scottish representatives, which Rangers were. You can’t claim (and I don’t mean you particularly) to support the Scottish representatives but then exclude some because they aren’t financially well managed. Rangers mk II have been run at a loss but have broken no rules, and are not the first club in Scotland or in Europe to have been run at a loss. Again, I have been a vocal critic on here of the Rangers administration, but if people are on here claiming to support the Scottish representatives but making an exception for Rangers then I say they are hypocrites. 

Time for Scots Government to Take Bull by the Horns
Jimbo you were not as vocal in your support for Scottish representation in Europe when Rangers were (briefly) involved. Neither was anyone else here, somewhat disappointingly.
