Comment on Whose assets are they anyway? by upthehoops.

I read the Daily Record story online and I am frankly disgusted. If the SPFL have something to say on this matter then they should publicly state it and show irrefutable evidence that there is no mechanism to strip Rangers of titles. I doubt if they can though because I’m sure a good lawyer could tear apart anything they say. This isn’t going to go away, and the Chairmen of 41 other clubs really need to understand they will be asking for our season ticket money next year. They really, really need to understand that.

In general terms, I think we have now got to the point where the rest of Scottish football has to say enough is enough. If the clubs are unwilling to do this (for reasons I cannot fathom), then I would support a suggestion made in recent days for a complete fan boycott of a specific game as it may be the only way to adequately demonstrate the strength of feeling amongst the supporters. 

Many of my fellow Celtic fans are suggesting a boycott of the CIS Cup Semi-final if the authorities three wise monkeys stance towards Ibrox continues.  I am personally supportive of that but would never dream of telling anyone else to do the same as it is a personal choice. If it caught on (and I think it could), it would not be something that could be ignored.

Maybe I’m just thick, but Rangers seem to have issued a statement today part of which says what a Judge said outwith the jurisdiction of a court will forever overrule what a Judge may decide within the jurisdiction of a court.  I would also like to know what ‘action’ they plan to take if things don’t go their way.

Just reading the Twitter timeline of the BBC’s Kenny McIntyre. He was asked why Sportsound last night had the tax expert on who said the CoS got it wrong with Rangers but not the expert who said they got it right. His answer without a hint of shame was it would have been too much to have both on. Shameful from a publicly funded broadcaster in my view.

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.
