Terribly unfair. It’s like it’s one wind for one club and another for the other. What are the SFA doing about this victimisation?

Can Paul Murray actually sit on the board of a football club? I thought any director who sat on a board of a club who was then liquidated within 5 years of them being on the board was prohibited?
Maybe he could own shares and be a consultant. 🙄

Someone came up with JackLarg. I think that was more sinister sounding, and evocative of the dark arts. Jill Troon is more pantomime – or even MSM

Paul Troon works, phonetically.

Silent Partner – do you have a sliding scale for the level of rule-bending allied to the size of fan base? Your suggestion kind of makes a mockery of an Association of clubs and it’s rules. 🙄

Any membership of secret organisations must be resigned and anybody found to be disregarding this edict, removed from office immediately.

An admirable suggestion but I can’t see how that would work. The SFA test would involved the question “Are you a member of a secret organisation?”‘, to which the answer would always be “no” (although that’s probably debatable). The subject may be able to produce a letter from the organisation they definitely weren’t a member of, confirming the same (which may, helpfully, include the date they absolutely didn’t join). If this later proved to be (I believe the current word is) “inaccurate”, then the Bryson rule would apply. I think that’s where we’re up to in this nonsense.

Is it possible Mr King repeatedly “jets in” to Glasgow simply to reduce his tax liability in South Africa? Even better if he does it publicly and takes back a Daily Record article of said “jetting in” as evidence of where he’s been. All this ‘Rangers’ talk could be just a smokescreen.

Thanks, LTL (and Easyjambo, earlier). I attracted a lot of TDs for my (mainly rhetorical) question so can only assume folk thought I was questioning John’s work, which was certainly not where I was coming from. It was just my clumsy way of paying tribute. I know I wouldn’t be able to produce what amounted to transcripts of proceedings with additional, helpful comments – not with my handwriting and attention span. I can’t help thinking that if this kind of detail was available at the FTT, our collective flabber might not have been quite so gasted at the outcome. Thanks to everyone who took the time to attend and report back.

I’m a D but verging on double D these days.

“… I suspect he may be doing a “Craigy” whilst scribbling for effect…”
Cross my heart and hope to die, scouts’ honour, no electrical or mechanical gizmos or gadgets, morse code, carrier pigeons or woolly bees have been employed in my reporting from the UTTT! Only my pen and Poundland £1 A4 wide-ruled refill pad! And a strong desire not to fall asleep from boredom, by keeping busy!

Didn’t doubt it for a moment, John. I seem to have acquired several TDs I hadn’t bargained on but glad you were on the same benign wavelength. Sir, I salute your indefatigability (and eye for a stationery bargain).
