    One, er, Two Rules to Rule Them All

    This BBC tweet references a “police chief “ suggesting a senior officer has made a statement when in fact the substantive comments by the “chief” are actually made by a representative from the Scottish Police Federation who represents the rank and file. Whilst he has every right to comment it’s a poor show from the BBC to headline the comments in that way. There’s also a curious comment in the article stating that the clubs store banners belonging to fans who then hide behind these banners if they have committed any misdemeanours. Presumably someone has observed this type of fan behaviour but  no action has been taken in respect of this as far as I know. Can anyone confirm if clubs do actually store banners? It suggests some sort of collusion and a tacit acceptance of unwelcome messages being displayed on the banners.

    The punch doesn’t have to land for it to be an assault. Scott Brown, being a well trained athlete with excellent reflexes would instinctively react to a fist heading towards his face and minimise the impact of such an attack. From what I’ve read on Twitter this morning it appears Police Scotland are consulting with the Procurator Fiscal regarding his (Brown’s) behaviour during the match. Given what the video footage shows of the Ryan Kent incident Scott Brown could himself make a complaint to the Police. It will be interesting to see how the compliance officer deals with this matter later today.

    In Scots law the intent (attempt) to cause someone harm is enough to constitute assault. So even if a punch is thrown but misses the target it’s still assault. #pedantry.

    I’ve just read back through the last few posts from Auldheid and John Clark. Entirely more interesting that golf thingy over at Portrush. The clause in the companies act stating that former directors of companies in liquidation are still liable for corporate and personal misdeeds is a wonderful back stop.

    I’m going out on a limb here but I think JJ is referring to an email. There are no spades in his garden shed, just instruments of excavation.

    Speaking of stooshies, JJ has composed and sent a missive to UEFA complaining about the Rangers EL squad apparent anomaly. I wonder where he got the idea John Clark? Come to think of it has anyone seen these two gentlemen in the same room at the same time?

    The restriction imposed on the size of the Rangers EL squad highlights the lack of talent being conveyed by the Hummel Training Centre conveyor belt, not that anyone in the SMSM is going to provide any analysis of this. The SMSM are far too busy extolling the virtues of the next Virgil Van Dyke (per Robert Prytz) to ask relevant questions. Another indicator, perhaps, that money is too tight to mention.

    This “anomaly” was commented on here a short time ago with specific reference to Alan McGregor as he (as per Traverso) played for both iterations of Rangers. It was pointed out at that time that he qualified because it happened under SFA jurisdiction. JJ concurs with this too but is also pointing out that Rangers only have 4 homegrown players in their EL squad. I have not looked into it any further but there is now the potential for a complaint. If this is against the rules then the SFA have another question to answer re Rangers and European football.
