So many questions arising from todays announcement

1. If SDM was so convinced of admonishment as he consistently stated, why not hold out rather than sell the club to Whyte?

2. Any cursory check on Whyte’s background would show what his core skill is – what then of SDM’s claims of finding the right buyer?

3. Now that the existence of side letters, and the deliberate lack of disclosure to football authorities, has been confirmed how can the SPL/SFA come to any other conclusion but to expel The Rangers Football Club Limited and strip Rangers Football Club PLC of past titles?

4. If this decision was reached Jan/Feb of this year that would mean that the tribunal has watched over the club’s fall into administration, failure to reach CVA and forthcoming liquidation KNOWING that they had cleared the club?

5. If the decision is appealed, does that mean HMRC can introduce Alex Rae’s radio interview, Jean Alan Boumsong’s statements to the press and Billy Dodd’s claims that tax had been deducted prior to him receiving loan payments (who pays tax on a loan??), as new evidence?

6. Were Scotland managers/coaches and SFA personnel paid loans after their employment with Rangers ceased and whilst they were employed directly by the SFA?

7. Were any disciplinary panel members that sat on cases involving Rangers paid loans at any time before or after their sitting on the disciplinary panel?

8. How can the detailed evidence noted by one panel member be so blatantly ignored by other panel members?

Victory? Looks like there’s quite a bit to be addressed yet.

Craigan has nothing to do with Killie – he’s a Motherwell man.

It’s not Killie that link both these men, it’s their allegiance to a club that is no more that links them. Don’t ever confuse their allegiance with that of Kilmarnock FC fans however.

From a KFC viewpoint, whilst Kenny and Michael Johnston may have promoted a “we can’t survive without Tax Dodgers FC” mantra, the Killie support were more than vociferous in their denial of this stance.

Furthermore, it’s noticeable that no one from KFC were on the SPL board who tried to force Sevco FC onto the 1st Division. May I remind you who was;

Ralph Topping (SPL Chairman), Neil Doncaster (SPL Chief Executive), Stewart Robertson (Motherwell FC), Eric Riley (Celtic FC), Stewart Gilmour (St Mirren FC) and Rod Petrie (Hibernian FC). The board met at Hampden on a monthly basis.

Oh look ….. Eric Riley but, but ……. where’s the KFC rep?????

Make sure your team isn’t the one that produces the crap before you start throwing it about.

Dignified? …… No

Respectful? …….. No

Honourable? ……. No

What that video exhibited was nothing less the misappropriation of the war dead (who were both civilian and military, lest we forget) by a football club for purposes no more base than their own promotion.

Were Cameron, Miliband, Clegg et all to instigate the ‘bouncy bouncy’ at the Cenotaph would the onlookers or the Royal British Legion join in?

For me, Kilmarnock Football Club & Ross County Football Club showed how an honourable and dignified mark of respect be provided ……. a lone bugler in the centre circle, the last post, a silence from the stands followed by a resounding volley of applause.

As an ex serviceman, I find it shameful and repugnant that some current service personnel deem this behaviour an appropriate mark of respect.

For a football club to use the memory of the dead for self promotion – utterly loathsome.

Huge credit to Celtic and their supporters tonight on an absolutely fantastic performance.

Given the relative youth of the Celtic team, the tactical nous of their manager & coaching staff and the unadulterated positivity of the support tonight they have provided a major boost to the Scottish game.

From a Killie fan, much kudos to all.

P.S. Reagan, Ogilvie, Traynor and co …….. tak yer Armageddon and git it right roon ye!

Fair Play at FIFA?
Following the Communities Cup Final and St Mirren’s fabulous win (well done the buddies!) it really struck home to me how much we have veered from watching football for the sheer unadulterated joy of simply watching a GOOD football game.

Hell mend David Murray, Rangers, the SFA, Sevco/TRFC (delete as applicable), and the SPL for that particular crime.

Kudos to Danny Lennon, Tommy Craig and the St Mirren team for reminding us of the joy that football can provide.

As for Rangers/TRFC being ‘saviours of the game’? My hairy crack!

It’s quite obvious now that they are nothing more than parasites.

The response of some Celtic fans is getting to be on a par with that of Rangers fans;

“it’s everybody else’s fault”
“our clubs done everything it can”

And the most cowardly response of all;

“can you imagine the reaction of the red tops if Celtic spoke out!”

The game in Scotland is widely regarded as being on the cusp of terminal decline. Indeed some consider that threshold has already been passed.

Instead of leadership, honesty, soul searching and critical self analysis, some seem to prefer a stance of holding their hands over their ears and repeating “lah! lah! lah! lah! lah!”

ALL clubs and their supporters should be willing to accept constructive criticism.

After all, look what happened to the last club who’s support was ultra sensitive to negative comment.

Yes, Kilmarnock F.C. abstained from the vote. However, which is the more honest a vote? An abstention or a NO vote given by a club that wished to vote YES but was dissuaded from doing so solely as a result of the negative reaction of their support?

In the run up to the SPL vote;

Rod Petrie was having private meetings with Charles Green in an attempt to ‘smooth the way forward’ for TRFC in the SPL.

Eric Riley, was an integral part of the SPL board that was leading the fight to have TRFC retain SPL status.

If you wish to castigate any SPL club for this fiasco you should castigate all. However, the distinction between club and support is a valid one.

Without the reaction of the supporters you can be damn sure the vote to retain TRFC in the SPL would have carried.

And, if you don’t believe Celtic are seeking the prompt re-instatement of the ‘Old Firm’ brand, the lack of any rebuttal to Longmuir’s pronouncement should tell you all you need to know about the intent of Celtic F.C.

“are the custodians of our game so corrupt they are willing to let their family history be tainted with the stigma their siblings will have to face if they fast track this accident waiting to happen”

An ever increasing amount of evidence would suggest, yes.
