    Merry Xmas to all and especially to the Administrators for the work they've done for our benefit; to those who make intelligent analysis of the footballing scene; and to the readers who are taking time on Christmas Day to thumb down posts 😀

    Agreed, McLeish was embarrassing when he was looking for the Scotland job, but according to BBC, he had an EBT of £1.7 million (supported by a side letter) to think about. The SFA must have known about this unless they hadn't read the BBC page.


    Has their been any further news of recipients being pursued for repayment?

    See the 7th tweet in the Swiss Ramble thread: "Rangers FC have consistently lost money since their return from liquidation"

    Did I miss something?

    Regarding "bias" at the BBC, I recall the James Traynor years in the BBC, now remembering his punditry in a somewhat different light. How did he get away with it? He had a cute way of discussing Rangers, covering his succulent lamb years with a pretence of supporting Airdrieonians, but never seriously castigating those who were responsible for Rangers failing business model and their ultimate liquidation.The bias continues with BBC using "Rangers" statements while having no access to the club for questioning.

    Editorial bias can come in different guises and can be found in all subject matter. My favourite was the presenter just prior to the 2014 referendum uttering the words prior: "A rally in Edinburgh in support of the union was joined by thousands of people from all over the United Kingdom". This was the BBC describing an orange order march!

    The Guardian had a more balance view of the event.

    Like Razkolnikov perpetrators can’t stop themselves from returning to the scene of the crime.

    Liquidation, when the final “strike off” happens, will draw those who were involved in setting up Sevco/Rangers via the 5-way agreement to take another look at the cover up that was needed.

    Is the 5-way agreement [if it exists, we don’t know for sure of course] a legal contract? At some point, not as a result of SFA transparency for sure, a true version of the 5-way agreement will be made public and gives further opportunity for the parties, including the two “Rangers” to chew it over. Sevco will not pass over the opportunity to issue a wisnaeme statement.

    Unfortunately our so-called journalists won’t do any digging around these topics.

    In my case I’ll blame my meds, StevieBC.

    It was 2017 of course. BTW, I did my final work via my limited company which is now going through members voluntary liquidation [as recommended *] and it’s fine to watch the process unfold. No 5-way agreement involved.
