The conditions you lay out for moving forward are spot on. It is quite incredible after all that’s happened we have the Chairman of one of our biggest clubs saying we should forget all about it and move on. I wonder if his very successful business had been cheated in a similar way since 2000 he would be so forgiving. Imagine it was discovered another housebuilder had used illicit means to purchase land in prime areas at a cost prohibitive to his company, making tens of millions in profit along the way. If you are reading this Mr Milne, just think about that. 

I don’t think I’ve ever felt as sickened about the governance of our game more than I do this very day, and believe me there are many other days to compete with. In terms of media coverage the national broadcaster is triumphantly announcing FOR THE THIRD TIME IN THREE WEEKS that Rangers will pay / already have paid the loan to Sports Direct. Enough said.

motor red 17th December 2015 at 9:20 am #dear, up the hoops. i suggest you reign it in a bit, where have i ever suggested that i would like to see my club roll over?

Motor Red, just getting the chance to respond.

My post was not directed at you or any other Dons fan. It was an attempt to communicate with those SPFL Chairs and CEO’s who may on the off chance read this blog. Apologies if it came over any other way. My main point is if they all fall over themselves for Rangers the way Stewart Milne appears to be, then Rangers will be all they have left. The Rangers fans through their misplaced anger against all other clubs will back their team in great numbers. If those in charge of the other clubs expect THEIR fans to ignore the ridiculous finger of blame the Rangers fans are pointing then there will in my view be a significant number who will walk away and maybe never return.

They should be very careful what they wish for, because it might just come true.

motor red 17th December 2015 at 4:51 am #well i have just seen my reply from AFC, ”dont believe everything you read in the paper”thats it. my post was mainly a copy and paste job to be honest. i did reply.  i do hope mr milne will come out and refute the statement,as this and to many others looks like mr milne is flying a kite on mr kings behalf. thanks for the reply ,all the best to you in the xmas and new year.

While the reply they sent you may be true in a general sense, it in no way addresses whether or not Milne is quoted accurately, and what prompted him to say it. 

I have no idea if SPFL Chairs or CEO’s read this blog, but if they do all I’d like to say is this. If the way ahead is for Rangers to always be on top with capacity crowds, lording it over your club then you are welcome to it. I, like many others, will need to seriously think whether I should spend a penny more on such a corruptly managed product. Of course, should you insist on a proper punishment for Rangers past cheating, and demand a full apology for it, then of course a club like that could be an asset to the league. To summarise though, If you want to just lie there and let Rangers trample all over you, then you’re welcome to it. Why don’t you just hand every trophy to Rangers at the start of the season and be done with it. Better still, perhaps you would be happy playing Rangers at your ground in front of a capacity crowd consisting only of Rangers fans, because that’s the way you’re heading.

I believe the Stewart being referred to by DCK in the alleged letter will be the Rangers CEO.

To Comply or not to Comply ?

Ian Maxwell has had enough time to make a move forward.  He has done nothing, said nothing.  Just another one of the gang.  Get rid.  The lot of them.


We will need to see how they move it forward, however as I have already said I think the SFA will use this moment to close the case. 

To Comply or not to Comply ?
Here is my forecast of what will happen next.

1) The SFA will say Senior Counsel has advised them there is little chance of the case progressing at CAS, therefore the matter will not be progressed any further.

2) The SFA will refuse to say what punishment (if any) they believed was appropriate before the CAS situation arose. 

3) The SFA will refuse to make the 5-way agreement public. 

4) Celtic will go public on their website with a lot of information previously unseen by the general public, which will show why the licence should never have been awarded, both pre/post 31/03/2011.  No other club will say anything. 

5) The SFA will say only one club is asking questions. The media will back the SFA.

6) The SFA will say the matter is closed, that valuable lessons have been learned, and that you will never please everyone, especially in Glasgow. The media will say it is an ‘O*d F*rm argument. 

7) Rangers will know that after this, and after the SFA refusal to hold a Judicial Review, that they are completely free to do as they please, and nothing will ever happen to them. 

Is all of the above really so far fetched?

To Comply or not to Comply ?
So the case might go to CAS. I can see why the SFA might be glad about that but where does it leave the parties who believe the period up to 31/03/2011 was wrongly omitted from the investigation?

To Comply or not to Comply ?
Totally wild speculation time.

What if King tomorrow pleads that to comply with the TOP order will impact on his continuing ability to financially support Rangers? He has changed his story a few times already, and there would be no better way to make the Scottish establishment sit up and take an interest!

To Comply or not to Comply ?
I see in King’s latest statement he refers to members of the media giving his club a hard time. If the current situation is giving them a hard time you wonder what it would be like if they start to big them up!
