Comment on Stevie G – The Real Deal? by Highlander.

    If Kevin McKenna now denies the liquidation of Rangers Football Club took place and instead promotes 'the big lie', then he is culpable of performing a u-turn of the magnitude normally reserved for part-time historical revisionist and full-time PR failure, Jim Traynor, a man we should harpoon and lampoon as a buffoon for his cringeworthy volte face.

    "HMRC has brought the curtain down on the 140-year history of one of the world’s most successful football clubs. Rangers will now be liquidated and their assets sold. The next few weeks will determine what form any new club rising from the ashes will take."

    Stevie G – The Real Deal?

    If DCK was telling the truth ( hard to discern, sometimes)

    As a rule of thumb, I always assume Dave King is lying, regardless of what subject he comments on.

    As Judge Brian Southwood noted, "he is a mendacious witness whose evidence should not be accepted on any issue unless it is supported by documents and other objective evidence”.

    It still amazes me to this day that this is the man the Ibrox hordes trusted to "get them back (cough) to their rightful place" and it amazes me even moreso that he was welcomed back into the fold by the utterly inept Scottish football authorities despite all the red flags, alarm bells and klaxons that preceded him.

    May they all reap what they sow.  

    Stevie G – The Real Deal?
    There can be little doubt that Willie Collum has his faults as a referee, as is proven not by Rangers* recent official statement, but by the number of clubs and fans across the country who have voiced concerns about his incompetence over many seasons.

    There are various ways for disgruntled clubs to address the issue, but there is only one way to do so whilst appealing to the neanderthal element of your support in a Billy Bigbawz sort of way and that's exactly what historical revisionist and embarrassing buffoon Jim Traynor has achieved with the aforementioned official statement.

    Traynor knows that the board will gain kudos for 'standing up to the Rangers-haters', but he also knows full well that Mr Collum will have to check that the insurance premiums on his windows are up to date, and there's the threat of even worse to come thanks to Traynor's thoughtless dog-whistling.

    It's high time the SFA's new leader showed some leadership and dealt severely with the rogue Ibrox club before somebody is seriously injured or even worse.

    I'd wager that Dr Mo holds the same number of medical qualifications as The Lawman holds legal qualifications, ie absolutely none. There the similarities begin.

    Dear Mr Bankier
    Can I add my thanks to our intrepid court reporters for the fantastic job they are doing. The detail and analysis they are providing puts our so-called professional journalists to shame.

    While I'm here, it's half-time at Tynecastle and the facsimile club have taken the lead by virtue of an offside goal. I'm sure that Jim Traynor is currently compiling an official complaint to the SFA about the standard of decisions made in this match. indecision

    Lady Wolffe is receptive to King purging his contempt by making an offer. King has accepted that he will proceed with an offer on his return to SA. He has agreed that he will make an new exchange control application and seek to appoint a cash confirmed. He thinks it will still take six weeks or so.

    I'm not sure whether judges are permitted to take account of a defendant's past history, so it's possible that Lady Wolffe won't let King's 'glib and shameless liar' status affect her judgement, but I will find it utterly baffling if King isn't charged with perjury, having declared himself penniless in a court of law just a few short weeks ago in the same legal case, yet now he claims to be able to fund the mandatory offer, notwithstanding it may be a reduced amount. King seems to have made two diametrically opposed statements to the court, so at least one of them must be a lie, thus the perjury.

    The man has a long and chequered history of sticking two fingers up at the law of the land and I can't help but think today's outcome is going to be more prevarication and fudge.

    Dear Mr Bankier
    It would be interesting to know if the new Sky deal includes a clause relating to the number of Celtic/Rangers* matches which require to be televised per season.

    I mean, in the light of 'going concern' warnings from auditors every year, who can say with absolute certainty that one of those clubs won't suffer a future insolvency event which would result in no such fixtures taking place?

    It's not as if our football authorities would ever have the audacity to try and fix the game such that Rangers must never be relegated, liquidated, or otherwise lost to the top flight simply because of financial expediency. God forbid!  

    JPP: Perverting Justice?
    While trawling the internet for the latest footie news, I inadvertently stumbled across a half decent article in today's Daily Record about racism and whataboutery.

    Amongst the author's more astute observations is the line, "Sometimes things just happen without being part of a conspiracy against you."

    I see that Highland League club Rothes have had a three point deduction for fielding an ineligible player just a matter of weeks after Fort William also suffered a points deduction for the same offence.

    Compare and contrast with the lack of punishment applied to a club found guilty of playing ineligible players in virtually every game throughout an entire decade.

    It's also worth noting that it was Rothes themselves who commendably reported to the football authorities what was clearly just an administrative error.
