    Craig Levein makes some very good points there. The Elephant in the room that won't go away is that the selection process for Grade 1 Referees is clearly geared towards those from Glasgow and Lanarkshire, and the vast majority of them support Rangers. Forgetting any arguments over whether they are biased that is a very unhealthy situation for me, and hints at someone in power thinking Rangers minded people (who are more than likely also Freemasons) are naturally better placed to lead and influence. It smacks of how job promotions used to be decided and that is why legislation was introduced to stop it. There is clearly an issue within the Referee appointment process which is riding roughshod over diversity and inclusion legislation. Anyone who can't see that is in complete denial in my view.

    Pleased to see three men have finally been arrested for allegedly sending abusive messages to John Beaton. We all love our football and we all get hugely annoyed at the Referee, but they are as entitled to live their lives in safety and peace as the rest of us are.

    Scottish Football Away Days on Facebook has clip of Bachmanns sending off.


    I expect the Killie keeper will have the red rescinded but the damage to the game as a contest was dealt a severe blow with what was an utterly ridiculous decision. Retrospective action should be taken against the Rangers player for conning the officials, however after Rangers very public show of strength through a friendly media this week I think it is highly unlikely retrospective action will be taken against any of their players again this season.

    The 'looks like Rangers and smells like Rangers' is the only point that is allowed. It is the only point that is allowed by the SFA and the media. Anyone who does not subscribe to that point is dismissed. Jim Spence and Graham Spiers are the only two hacks who have said Rangers are a new club and neither contribute any more to BBC sport. It is a quite shocking state of affairs in a so called democracy that only one opinion is allowed. Even though the alternative opinion has legally binding facts behind it, whereas the one that is allowed has no legal backing whatsoever.

    At the end of the day in Scotland  'Rangers' are considered to be superior to all others. Ergo, the views of Rangers fans are given a higher priority than that of other fans. Even though Celtic have achieved a treble treble, the media STILL give prominence to Rangers on a daily basis. It was forever thus, and personally gives me a lot of pleasure that my club being so successful can cause so much upset to the nation's powerbrokers, who are even willing to see tax go unpaid if it helps Rangers succeed.

    I am beginning to think the only way for Resolution 12 to progress is through a criminal investigation…by the City of London Police of course. Zero chance of anything progressing under the jurisdiction of the Scottish establishment. We even have a media who won't even report on it, and in many cases choose to mock it. Think about that – there is a mountain of evidence out there that wrongdoing took place, and the media don't want to know. They would rather a team succeeded by cheating – that is truly incredible.

    DBD, thanks for that contribution. I'm in a hurry but all I will say is we would never have to question the SFA had they not given us so many reasons to do so. In short can we ever trust them to do the right thing?

    UTH – I’m conflicted by JJs output. The odd interesting piece scattered about invective and bile for other bloggers. Then the crusade type pieces against the McCanns. Alongside the password pieces, makes him a very difficult writer to like. 

    I struggle to see what seems such a simple problem being a real one for The Rangers  


    I'm keeping an open mind on this one. In 2011 the SFA said it was fine for Rangers to be awarded a European licence. A mountain of evidence now in the public domain suggests that not only was it not fine, but the SFA, or at least some people within it, might have been well aware it was not fine.

    Roll on to 2012 and we had the Bryson interpretation on player eligibility. One the SFA had never used before and have never used since. 

    Then once the supreme court ruled that Rangers were guilty of illegal tax evasion, the SFA said there was no point in raking over old coals.

    So no matter what you think of JJ, he may well be spot on that the SFA are yet again allowing something in favour of Rangers that they shouldn't be. Maybe they're not, but history tells us it is a question well worth asking.

    Interesting article today by John James on the construct of Rangers European squad and their eligibility under homegrown player rules. If what he says is accurate it is surely worth a challenge by Rangers next opponents or even the ones they will eliminate on Thursday night.  Also, if what he says is accurate then it is shameful by the SFA if they are knowingly allowing it.
