Let’s assume you are either right or wrong, I think that’s a reasonable position.

If you are right Rangers would have gone tens of millions more into debt, but had no extra income, so would simply have died quicker. I think you said that yourself earlier. 

On a plus side they would not have had to hide side-letters from HMRC and the football authorities, and not cheated in that way. They were found guilty of that cheating and fined £250,000. What did the man say, just short of match fixing or something like that. That is now a blot on Rangers’ history, whatever else happens, let’s not forget that.

If you are wrong Rangers would have spent far less money on wages, leading to a much weakened squad. It is unlikely they would have won as much as they did. We will never actually know the answer to that, but logically Rangers would not have won as much with a far weaker squad.  This would probably have led to less income, from Europe for example.

I think all most of us are saying is that we would have preferred if Rangers hadn’t indulged in tax avoidance, leading to them almost certainly winning things they shouldn’t have and earning income other clubs would otherwise have had access to. Since they did indulge in it (and it kind of doesn’t matter if they had other options they, did it) we just want the record books to reflect that.

As a Celtic supporter I do not want a single league or cup added to our history, we did not win them. I just want the record to reflect that Rangers didn’t win them (fairly) either. 

Supporters of other clubs may feel differently as they may have won a trophy during that period had Rangers played the game fairly.

Congratulations to Aberdeen, I watched the game and it was a well deserved win.

It’s good to see Scotland still represented in both European competitions, long may it continue.

Can I just say, good luck to Aberdeen tonight. 

The game is on Premier Sports if anyone is interested.

I have joined the SFSA and completed their survey.

At the very least it will hopefully give some indication of the strength of feeling people have.

You guessed, what gave it away.

Our hero, and he really is a hero is at it again with his self-effacing prose.

“I cover every issue and more often than not you will read it here first. If I were a Superhero and not a mere blogger I would literally champion the oppressed. However as one who believes  that the pen is mightier than the sword I revert to keystrokes. I have never had a tattoo but if I ever decided to go down this route I would choose the Palestinian flag. However as this might offend one of my my best friends, Max in Tel Aviv, I continue to demure.”

I’m assuming he means demur, however he could well be a shy, modest lady. 

The heroism continues

“When it comes to murderers who remain at large this site will continue to hold the most the most odious mass murderer since Pol Pot, Tony Blair, to account. Given half a chance I would fell him with a single head-butt or induce irreparable damage to his frontal lobes with an upward punch to his nose. Suffice to say I have sufficient training in martial arts to make this blow count. People like Blair are immune to the pen. This lily livered pansy deserves the sword.”

Can you guess who it is yet.

THE case for retaining Hampden as the home of Scottish football has been dealt a blow after a survey found just 15 per cent of fans were happy to stay put.

…..

The Scottish Football Supporters Association (SFSA) carried out a survey of just under 3,000 of its members and found only a sixth wanted to see major internationals and cup finals staged at Hampden.
