Comment on The Way it Works by scottc.

The proposed George Soros ‘investment’ is nothing of the kind, of course. He is allegedly offering 20p per share so £10m buys pretty much all of it without any money making its way into the club itself; it all goes to the existing shareholders. It also gives the new ‘owners’ complete ownership of Ibrox and MP and Edmiston House and the Car park. Probably not bad for £10m with the ability to sell on the football club with or without its £16m+ debt to RIFC to anyone who might want to spend their hard earned

The other columns all relate to betting odds from various betting agencies.

It’s a pity there is no data on penalties awarded so we can’t analyse which referees may be prone to giving home penalties in the second half when the home team isn’t ahead – and I’m not just referring to one specific club!

That’s why we need to combine data from multiple sources. The soccer punter data holds data relating to times of cards, goals and penalties. That CSV is the only place I’ve found the referees named.

I would think so tykebhoy, but once they ‘allow’ access for one thing they can’t really turn round and make things difficult for other things. Oh, and torrejohnbhoy, I agree that Deloittes can’t really stop them using the money but they can make things difficult regarding the accounts that they are working on right now

The only way forward for TRFC is to acknowledge the truth:


JC while browsing a link i found myself at Companies house, and while there took a look at TRFC accounts 2019, which is a bit of a puzzler as there are two companies listed claiming to be The old RFC.

Company number SC425159
Incorporated on 29 May 2012

Company number SC437060
Incorporated on 16 November 2012

Both still claim in their yearly accounts strategic report to be Rangers Football club formed in Scotland 1872

So anyway a little intrigued and knowing my knowledge of company filings to be sadly neglected, I had a look at both, namely their yearly accounts.

TRFC Club limited shows
Year Ended 30th June 2019 Total Revenue 51.326
Year ended 30th June 2018 Total Revenue 31.618
Operating Loss 12.259

RIFC shows
Year Ended 30th June 2019 Total Revenue 53.171
Year Ended 30th June 2018 Total Revenue 32.163
Operating Loss 11.647

I doubt TRFC will ever acknowledge the truth when not one but two companies registered in 2012 can pretend to be the same entity, and more so appear to just willy nilly pluck figures from thin air.



There are, of course, two companies, FF. TRFC is the club, as is and has always been (at least since 2012), and RIFC is the holding company. The disparity in the accounts is because TRFCs accounts are rolled up into RIFC alongside any other income RIFC may have. Of course, they are both the original RFC subject to requirements at the time

At the height of lockdown we saw some nurses not return home for 10 weeks to avoid passing covid to their families.

WRT to the SPL specifically, it would seem that the ‘best’ chance of avoiding a SG imposed shutdown is for each club to keep their players in one place, where they can see them.

Like an extended, overseas preseason training camp: keep the players in a hotel or university campus or whatever.  It won’t be foolproof but it would clearly indicate to the SG that the SPL is doing its best to manage risks.

All it might take is for another few daft players to risk possibly the full completion of the league?

Something radical is needed to ensure fixtures can be completed this season.

The SPFL management – and the SFA – have to come up with a solution to protect the domestic competitions.


Like the NBA are doing at Disneyworld, albeit they have all the teams in one 'bubble'. It would be expensive but if the teams can't trust the players, or the players are too thick to do the right thing, then maybe it is something some of the larger teams could look at.

I just want to know how the all powerful 'Peter' managed to tamper with the The Rangers testing protocol?

I think we should be told.


I would imagine, Stevie, that 'friends of Peter' were involved in some unseen way

Perhaps it would not be deemed so bad if Ralston and his ilk did actually call a football team by its name, that name in this case being The Rangers.

As you well know, there was a team called Rangers, (Rangers Football Club PLC) who entered liquidation in 2012 and remain there.

The new club manufactured by the big hands of Charles Green in 2012 were not called Rangers Football Club Limited, they were called The Rangers Football Club Limited. Therefore their correct name is The Rangers.


Thing is though, the original club was also called The Rangers Football Club, (in it's case it was PLC although it had previously been The Rangers Football Club Limited). The addition of 'The' as a differentiator was nothing more than a Charles Green fiction. He used exactly the same name as that under which the original club was incorporated.
