    Apparently this is a Tim wind-up with the state-aid nutter taking the bait.


    Oh right.

    I never knew that.

    There are certainly a lot of people on certain Rangers facing sites who believe it.


    Stevie G – The Real Deal?
    I can think of no legitimate reason for a PLC paying personal legal bills for one of its shareholders. How could they possibly justify that.

    It could only be considered a dividend if he was getting it as a shareholder, which is not possible because if it was that then every other shareholder would be entitled to the same.

    It can only then be considered a payment, but a payment to him as an employee, not a shareholder. 

    I don't know if Phil is correct or not with regards King's legal bills being paid by the PLC (and indirectly the club as it is the PLC's only source of income) however if he is correct then a few questions occur.


    1, How is it reflected in the accounts.

    2, Is it taxable income in the UK, if so how is King declaring it.

    3, How are they justifying spending the shareholders' money in this way, or rather increasing the losses.

    If Phil is correct this is really rather significant. It looks like the board of the PLC, and King in particular, treating the shareholders' money as if it is their own.

    Well McGregor is back having walked away, Lafferty is back having walked away.

    Why not Davis as well.

    Its good to see such a new club developing youth and looking to the future.

    Who is responsible for no radio commentary / live TV action from Ibrox?


    Forgive my ignorance.

    Do the BBC provide live tv coverage from any SPFL Premiership ground.

    I genuinely don't know either way.

    I suppose you could call it a withdrawal of reporting in protest at Rangers' decision, though at that stage you're just splitting hairs.


    Would it be splitting hairs to say that is just wrong.

    The BBC are reporting on Rangers on TV, Radio and On-Line, on a regular basis.

    Here is the part of their website dedicated to Rangers.


    There has been no "withdrawal of reporting" you just made that up.

    … but if the above is not a boycott then what is it?


    I think I can answer that.

    Its the BBC telling a club "You don't tell us who we get to cover stories about you, we make that decision"

    The BBC are not "boycotting Rangers" that is patent nonsense. 

    Dear Mr Bankier
    I watched the highlights of the Rangers game on the BBC the other night.

    I then listened to the presenter and two pundits discussing the game.

    If you want to see the highlights of the Dundee v Rangers 1-1 draw you can get them here.


    Ten-man Dundee moved off the bottom of the Scottish Premiership as they held out for a draw against Rangers.

    The BBC are really bad at doing boycotts.
