This morning we are treated to media coverage basically amounting to ‘nothing to see here, move along now’. I can only assume this nonsense has been lifted straight from the official Rangers website. If Graham Wallace is even daring to suggest media bias because the ‘A’ word is mentioned he should think again. Currently he enjoys a privileged position in that he has been accepted as a real deal heavyweight by people who had probably never heard of him 5 months ago. In that sense he is no different from Charles Green, Craig Whyte, David Murray, David Holmes, and all other before them. Clearly a man at the helm of the good ship Rangers is viewed as a man of greater honesty, integrity, and dignity than others. It’s sickening, but it will never change.

In my lifetime I have seen massive positive changes in the ways groups of people are treated. It’s far from perfect yet but there is a growing acceptance by the majority that a person’s race, religion, or gender should not prevent them being treated as an equal. Yet, still we have men in positions of power at Rangers who are clearly regarded as superior to all others, simply because of the position they hold. It just doesn’t add up.

What a hoot over on Twitter. Grant Russell from STV has been putting on tweets re the days business at the UTTT. An angry bear has demanded to know why Russell is not investigating Celtic’s land deals. Russell responds that there has been some investigation which found little in the way of facts. The angry bear then demanded that Russell ‘go and find the facts’. Good Lord! 😆

… and there’s the UTT revving up …
I’m guessing we’ll need to come on here for updates. Can’t see any being carried by the MSM!

It didn’t say, but the poster claimed to have been speaking to Auldheid.

For the record, I don’t believe in any God, I do believe in people. There are a lot of good people on SFM. Too many f*cking liars in positions of power though. One day. Maybe one day. The good people, not the meek, will inherit the world?


The biggest problem for me is there are still too many people who have a fixed position in their mind of what defines a ‘good’ person.  In Scotland in particular there is evidence over the years that a person’s schooling, religion, secret society membership and choice of football team can deem them to be a better person than others. Much of what has happened leading up to and since the demise of Rangers in 2012 backs my point in my view. I can see no other reason why many people involved in such dirty deeds against society can still be held in such high esteem by the media and politicians. Meanwhile others, who do not fit the identikit picture of a ‘good’ person, often find themselves under much more scrutiny.

The simple truth is there are many good people from all walks of life and they shouldn’t be defined by anything other than the qualities which make them good people.

Yet another signing arriving at Ibrox who is likely to be on £25-30k a week, given what he earned / could have earned had he stayed in England. Gerrard and his coaching team are likely to be costing around £3M a year, possibly more. There is no share issue yet, and recent court action suggests there won’t be for a while. The Europa League Group stages are a tough ask. Close Brothers have a loan of £3m plus interest which will have to be repaid, and it is not yet known how many of the soft loans have been called in. 

I just don’t believe there is no-one in the media capable of simple arithmetic.

Is it reasonable to think King is hoping the Takeover Panel get things to a point he will say he is no longer able to carry on at Ibrox then use Rangers PR to paint the T.O.P as the bad guys?

How many times does Dave King have to be taken to court before the SFA consider his fit and proper status? As for the media, there is surely a story worth pursuing!

You would think it was the liquidators fault they went liquidated because they were stealing all their cash.


Whether the fees are exorbitant I will leave for others with more knowledge of these things to judge. However, I do know that if Rangers (I.L) had played fair financially within the framework of the law there would be no need for the Herald to run such stories, because Rangers would still exist.
