It is for this reason that I personally see very little purpose in attending the AGM on an annual basis though I recognise that such a meeting does give some shareholders an opportunity to address directors and key employees.

It is also a chance to share some humour, as we can see here 12

Should TRFC eventually offer enough to persuade Hearts to sell Walker, they must insist on the full amount up front. Only that way can their profligacy be brought to an early end!

The Jamie Walker story has a very familiar feel to it. Rangers make offers which are unacceptable to the selling club then it is made public that the offer has been rejected (who by I wonder?).  It is only a matter of time before a newspaper runs with a headline of ‘DON’T RUIN MY DREAM MOVE’. The intention of course is to ‘force’ Hearts to sell on terms more acceptable to Rangers. It is pretty much like the Scott Allan saga of a couple of years ago when Celtic arrived on the scene and made the acceptable offer to Hibs that Rangers would not. I have no idea whether Jamie Walker is of interest to Brendan Rodgers but I’m sure if he was Celtic would do business with Hearts in a professional manner and an acceptable deal would be struck. The transfer most certainly would not be played out in the media. I very much doubt whether Celtic or Hearts trust many in the media at all, and would keep them at arms length.

I’ve just watched the video again from 2012 with Alex Thomson and Stewart Regan. Why on earth is Regan still in place all these years later, especially given what has emerged in the following years? Incredible doesn’t even begin to describe it.  Regan has since decided the comfort of his bunker is a far better option, but that does not explain why he is still in position, although I do not believe if he was gone that his replacement would be any less beholden to all things ‘Rangers’ than he is.

I note via Twitter that the Daily Record are somewhat triumphantly announcing that Rangers have spent close to £10m already this summer. If the figure is even close to accurate it will almost certainly include wages, signing on fees and agents fees. However the bottom line is the world and its granny knows they can’t afford that level of spending. Also, how does it fit in with the break even monitoring requirement they are allegedly now under with UEFA? Or do UEFA only monitor if the SFA tell them there is now a requirement to do so? That has never been clear, and with the recent comments from the SFA President who knows what lengths the SFA will go to assist.

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.
