I don’t think anyone will be genuinely surprised at what has happened with the latest SFA shambles. I assume they will actually confirm the next ground they select is available for the chosen date. Despite my dim view of them I did also assume they would have done just that with New Douglas Park. However let’s not lose sight of the fact it is way down the list of SFA wrongdoing, especially over these past four years.

In the last two financial years St Johnstone have made profits of £850,000 and £260,000. Whilst at the same time Rangers have made substantial losses.

St Johnstone as you say are a very well managed club. I’d be amazed if they accept a cut price deal on the never never from Rangers. Cash up front is the only option.

7 thumbs down to my earlier post. Good to see so many hacks reading the forum.

I have not purchased a newspaper for my own use for months. Occasionally my good lady will ask me to bring one home but aside from a glance at the back page normally followed by a shake of my head I don’t go near it. I do not mind admitting that my stance is solely down to the collective unwillingness of the media to expose the scandal and set out the truth of all that has happened at Ibrox since 1986.

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.
