    Old Rangers should have tried this tax wheeze and performed as artistic entertainers allowing the fees for agents to be tax deductible. It has worked for Lorraine Kelly.

    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.

    If you have to ask the price then you can’t afford it. Or something along those lines.

    "I think it is fair to say we are pretty much done, but you will always be looking to fine-tune and we will take it to the wire."

    Statement via the BBC from Mark Allen. “pretty much done” sums up their current plight although he was only speaking about the transfer window.

    I was wrong about the Scottish media not running with this latest Rangers debacle. It must really be serious this time.

    Anyone waiting on the SMSM discussing the latest Court development for TRFC will have a long wait. I listened to most of the truncated ClydeSSB this evening and it was full of nothing but positive comments re Rangers and how exciting the coming season is going to be.

    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.
