I know many of us rant and complain about the illogical, unquestioning presentation by the media following Rangers demise. The complete abandonment of critical faculties when reporting on last night’s result at Ibrox is unsurprising. However Radio 5 Live was very exact in its report around 7am this morning. No reference to previous world record championships won or ancient history, a team called Rangers won promotion to the Scottish Premiership after working its way up from SPFL2 over the last four years.

No surprise in the RST’s target, nor in the complaint not being upheld.

Edinburgh is the capital city of our country.  There are lots of empty fields around the west end of the city beside the airport.  Easy to reach.  Build a new National Stadium there with good parking availability. And maybe a bit easier for the ‘northern’ teams. …”
I’m sure that knight of the realm, former football club owner, Sir David Landbank Murray would agree wholeheartedly with this suggestion JIMBO. I wonder if has any contacts down Mount Florida way?

“The apparently partisan title of the seminar [ ” Rangers: Onward and upwards”] would make me question the objectivity of any conclusion drawn ( whatever that conclusion!): the last thing I would want in a lawyer is an inability to stay absolutely focused on the law as it is rather than through the prism of his personal predilections!”

John, I don’t think that the seminar title is a pro-Rangers thing, rather it’s more what might pass for humour in tax lawyer circles as a reference to the passage of the case up the legal system. Or maybe, I’m not as sceptical as I ought to be.

Gary’s behind the curve here – United fans are asking these questions – loudly. My take on this would be slightly different – if I were a Rangers supporter I’d be straight on to Gary Ralston demanding to know why he isn’t asking these questions of my club.

 Blu, I must say it was just a query out of interest unless someone else knew. It’s not important enough for me to
waste time doing my own digging  . That’s just too much like hard work haha! 

I’m sure that you know the difference between TRFCL, RIFC and TRFC plc.

DBD, there used to be a poster on this site who often advised, “DYOR”. Why not have a look and see what you come up with?

Paddy – I imagine the intellectual property of ‘The Old Firm’ would have shifted company as part of the Asset
transfer that included the badge and the name etc?

DBD – it may be worth a look at https://trademarks.ipo.gov.uk. My guess would be that Celtic F.C.Limited and The Rangers Football Club plc would be joint owners of any “Old Firm” trademarks still registered.

John, I don’t think that the current Board are cut from the same cloth as Masterton and Yorkston – they’re dealing with the reality of to trying to revive a club that nearly died due to the actions of others.
