Comment on JPP: Perverting Justice? by upthehoops.

    I think what UTH is alluding to is, if they'd managed a CVA or found a buyer, they would have, at a later date, had to face the EBT tax bill which didn't 'crystalize' until after the Supreme Court ruling.


    That is what I meant, or if they had managed to get to the CL group stages they might have struggled on. However the tax bill would have hit at some point.

    I see the name Brian Kennedy being mentioned again. If I recall correctly he is a Hibs fan who was attempting to help because his wife's family is steeped in Rangers. He also seems to be far removed from the type of characters who have come and gone at Ibrox. He didn't make his fortune by throwing good money after bad, and I am certain he would have demanded Rangers live within their means. In short, he is not what the average Ibrox patron seems to want.

    The behaviour meets the description of fraud. In particular the proof offered at end of March.


    I imagine in that case CAS would be the last place King wants this to go. My money was originally on the SFA going for the 'we've taken the advice of senior Counsel and blah blah blah'…we know the rest. They would be 100% backed by the media were they to do that.  However if that is an option why have they not done so already? Has senior Counsel already informed them otherwise? Have Celtic informed them that if they do, then they will publish the damning evidence the Res 12 people worked so hard to establish on the club website? Celtic must still answer Res 12 via an AGM in any case.

    Do you think the SFA were of the same view as many fans, many in the media, that Rangers were simply too big to fail, that someone would step in and it just wouldn't be allowed to happen?

    It's cup final day tomorrow, where a sell out crowd will watch Celtic go for a treble treble, with Hearts all out to stop them and win a trophy of their own. It's a showpiece end to the season and hopefully the weather will also oblige. 

    So you would think that Scotland's biggest selling tabloid might be interested in this. However, a quick glance at their website has the top three football stories as:

    1. Rangers signing a player from Oldham.

    2. Rangers fans buying season tickets in record numbers (even more of a record than last year?).

    3. Why Steve Clarke's first act must be calling up Ryan Jack

    I too like the idea that football success is based purely on a meritocracy. Sadly though that is becoming less and less of a case. A glance at the two 'Champions' League finalists shows that to be the case. At the very least the tournament should be renamed.

    Couple of points on what's recently been posted. The colts thing is just about making TRFC more relevant – whether it happens or not – and people who give thumbs down without justifying them with posts arguing their displeasure are just cowards.


    I don't care if Colts teams are allowed or not, other than to agree that if it is genuinely viewed as a benefit to bringing on younger players, then it should definitely not be restricted to only two clubs. Any club that can afford it should be allowed a chance. 

    In terms of Rangers and relevance it was a joy to hear the pundits on Radio Clyde tonight trying to justify how vital Sunday's Od Frm game is to Celtic. A lady caller offered the view the game meant nothing to Celtic but they were not having it. In my view it means very little to Celtic OR Rangers and anyone who tries to use it as a barometer for anything is clutching at straws.  I am also waiting for the Press Conferences before the game to hear some in the media somehow trying to associate Liverpool's incredible result last night with Rangers, just because of Gerrard. I guarantee there will be some sort of slavering nonsense spoken.

    That will be the same Alastair Johnston who ignored the fact Craig Whyte was found not guilty in a criminal court and went on TV the next day to say Whyte was 'guilty' of 'murdering' Rangers. That will be the same Alastair Johnston who was on the old Rangers board when they indulged in illegal tax evasion. Scottish football is as well rid of that charlatan as it is of anyone involved in the old Rangers mess.

    Someone is clearly working Stevie Gerrard from the back (I wonder who?!!!!)

    To come away with this age old nonsense about Aberdeen trying harder against them than they do against Celtic was embarrassing in the extreme from a man with such a glittering playing career at a high level. Firstly the inference of his statement is that Rangers are at least the equal of Celtic, therefore it is fair to make such a comparison. In reality perhaps Aberdeen enjoy more success against Rangers because Rangers are easier to beat. Also, the inference that a team lies down to another looks rather stupid given the number of hammerings Celtic have dished out to Rangers these past three years. 

    I am afraid Gerrard has indulged in primary school playground stuff which he should be above. Well done to Derek McInness for saying Rangers shouldn't flatter themselves so much, and for once well done to the media for refusing to doff their cap to any type of nonsense emanating from Ibrox.
