The spending activity (even at the most sensible, non Shark-Jump estimates) is bewildering. King has a shelf life on a par with Theresa May – he’s gone to be replaced by Johnston – but this Jonny FatWallet largesse looks like Supernova activity to me.
Easy to spend the ST money quickly of you know the cupboard won’t be bare until after you’ve gone. There is some incredibly delusional behaviour shown by people, otherwise well-versed in the arts and science of business, who think money will appear simply because “this is Rangers”.
In normal circumstances, that would be up to them, and the fallout from their serial wrong-choice behaviour would be confined to those making the choices.
However these are not normal circumstances. Another Ibrox insolvency event will have consequences for others in the leagues. John Gilligan was “strongly advised” by his bosses at TCB to hit the Ibrox eject button due to their fear that they would become associated with another car-crash.
That seems prudent business to me, and hardly obsessional behaviour. I still believe that administraion is of no benefit to anyone at Ibrox. However I used to believe that avoiding it was of great benefit to them.
Now I am no longer sure. It’s starting to look like they really couldn’t care less.
My apologies for the preceding Smörgåsbord of mixed metaphors 🙂
Love it when this place gets back to analysis. Great stuff guys.

My apologies for the unfortunate conflation 🙂
Maybe we should find a term to differentiate the other guy from you
That’s the great irony. I’m pretty sure a cleansed Rangers would be in a better place today. Maybe because the regenerated entity would have been much less of an attraction to the collection of neds and spivs who have been around it as flies to excrement.
A renewed rangers may have attracted a better quality of people. Maybe even people who have football expertise in their number – unlike the current TRFC board.
I would like to congratulate our new friend Ernie on the occasion of his 60th post since he joined up with us way back in, err, 8 November!!
Wish he was buying his candles from me 🙂
Couldn’t agree more with any of your points, although I would add that vested interests most definitely have a grip on the media. I think money has always been at the root of this thing.
The relationship between the press and the SFA, encompassing the cosy old colleagues relationships between PR companies (who let’s be clear are in the business of selling lies not news), club directors and journalists (who are happy to sell those lies as truth) is corrupt.
The good news is that people no longer believe what they read. The bad that people no longer believe what they read unless it suits them.
Enough is enough
