Comment on Two wrongs and a right by upthehoops.

There are a number of comments appearing on social media asking why the decision on BDO seeking leave to appeal to the Supreme Court is taking so long. Although I am a layman in such matters I am getting an uneasy feeling about this. No less than three Judges had a completely united view on this case. Refusing BDO leave to appeal would leave David Murray in particular looking very isolated and vulnerable at a time things are really hotting up. After all, it would then be set in tablets of stone forever that he operated a scheme designed to deny the public purse tens of millions it was due. Surely a decision should be issued by now?

I don’t think anyone will be genuinely surprised at what has happened with the latest SFA shambles. I assume they will actually confirm the next ground they select is available for the chosen date. Despite my dim view of them I did also assume they would have done just that with New Douglas Park. However let’s not lose sight of the fact it is way down the list of SFA wrongdoing, especially over these past four years.

In the last two financial years St Johnstone have made profits of £850,000 and £260,000. Whilst at the same time Rangers have made substantial losses.

St Johnstone as you say are a very well managed club. I’d be amazed if they accept a cut price deal on the never never from Rangers. Cash up front is the only option.

7 thumbs down to my earlier post. Good to see so many hacks reading the forum.

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.
