Whatever happened to the Nimmo-Smith Report?

It was shelved, as was Harper MacLeod’s investigation, Lord Carloway’s findings, Lord Gennies dicta and anything else that could possibly shed light on the dirty corrupt goings on at Ibrox and how they are inextricably linked to the people haunting the corridors of Hampden.

It was always going to be thus and will continue to be so.

The delay by Lord Hodge to kick D&P in the cojones and pave the way for BDO is no accident.

It is either designed to drag the situation out until any attempt to unravel the resultant pheonix is not worth the effort, or it is simply to enable the Fraud Squad to get their ducks in a row. I hope it is the latter because if it is not the corruption is more widespread than we thought.

Those of us who have been able to dip in and out of this blog and it’s predecessor at RTC can see that there is a chain connecting Murray, Whyte, Liberty, Ticketus, Zeus, Collyer Bristow, Worthington,Pritchard, Green and many more. Stevie Wonder could see it.

My concern is whether BDO will have the stomach to go in search of the truth, or whether they may not, using the excuse that it may cost too much to pursue, going instead for the softer targets of those who were directors at Rangers.

Whatever it costs the truth must be sought and revealed. If it is not, the game, and those who are charged with it’s governance, will be forever blighted.

Heads must roll and Ogilvie must be first.

Don’t give up, I too had a post in moderation and it was innocuous. Still don’t know the reason.

The last thing we need is the unnecessary censorship of sensible posts.

Launch of SFSA Fans’ Survey
Good morning
As expected a cop out.
QC Moynihan,
“applying the general principle of finality in litigation,”
Utter tosh it was never a litigation it was a flawed inquiry based on a false premise of EBT’s being lawful.
Just because someone has QC after their name does not make them infallible, with respect.
It is only his opinion after all. Many other will have different opinions equally or more valid.
What is needed is a complete clear out at the SFA/SPFL and the whole facts put before a Court.
Funny what a handshake can achieve

Launch of SFSA Fans’ Survey
Good evening,
Going to complete survey shortly and hope that this initiative will lead to change but won’t hold my breath.
Very suspicious of the involvement of politicians unless the come out publicly and demand the changes we want and don’t sit on the fence and seek self publicity as usual.
I have seen the disgusting self serving statements from Regan etc
I want to see title stripping but also the publication of the five way agreement and the removal of the present incumbents at the SFA.
At a minimum If titles are not stripped and the reason is that there is no point because Rangers went into liquidation, I want an unequivocal statement that Rangers(IL) died in 2012 and that the present team playing out of Ibrox is a new team and that they have zero history.
As far as the Green Brigade are concerned, their actions and subsequent statements are a disgrace.
When will they wake up to the fact that they hurt the club. How many fines need to be dished out before UEFA get fed up and kick Celtic out.
No one is asking them to change their politics, just keep them out of the club on match days.
Looking forward to the new season, the second without a season ticket because of the cheating which went on.

The Lost Voice of the Armageddon Virus
Good Evening
I do not often post nowadays but I, among many other posters, predicted a long time ago that Whyte would be found not guilty.
The purchase price was £1 and after you have paid your pound it is your toy to play with as you like.
So they think it is all over;not by a longshot.
This is only the beginning of a new chapter.
Watch out for Craigy boy going after the assets which should have rightfully been his until Green pulled the switcheroo.
For Sevco now to appoint yet another member of the cabal who were in charge at the demise of Rangers is just typical of their hubris.
Murray should now be disclosed for what he is – a jumped up barrow boy who took the taxpayers of this country for £1 Billion and still continues to lauded as a whizz kid.
Strip him of his knighthood
Get rid of Reagan and Doncaster and clean up the corrupt SFA.
Last year I did not attend a single game and do not intend ever to do so until these parasites have gone and Celtic Football club do something about the serial cheating of Rangers(IN LIQUIDATION)

THAT Debate, and the Beauty of Hindsight
Reports are circulating that King flew in and met with Regan.

If this is true it is time the clubs got together and dealt with their CEO.
King is not, despite the media’s best efforts to convince the unwitting, the Chairman of the Rangers Football club, (formerly known as Sevco). He is chairman of a holding company.
Time for clubs to demand what Regan was discussing and to ensure that UEFA fair play rules are adhered to.
Regan must go soon

THAT Debate, and the Beauty of Hindsight
In my opinion the only way to stop cheating by diving is to make a points deduction against the club.
Also surprised that no one has picked up on the equally cynical and in my opinion malicious incident at or around 84 minutes when Sinclair was fouled and the Ross County player Davis, who was not involved in the tackle deliberately stood on Sinclair’s back. It was clearly picked up on TV.
As has often been said the SFA are not fit for purpose but it is the fault of the clubs, they have the power to call them out and vote them out.
Finally with reference to a Mr. G who is a director of Sevco. He is not the nice man that some people think he is. He is a bigot and was one of those who upset DD at last years semi.
