Time to Wake Up………

April 18, 2013

I am sure that I do not need to go through the press headlines of the past week relating Mr Green to Mr Whyte. Sadly, as I have feared for some time, there appears to be a correlation between the two parties that has become somewhat exposed. Even at its most minimal of contact the relationship is enough to infer that Charles Green has lied to the Rangers support.

Who are Rangers?

November 20, 2012

A discussion developed earlier on Twitter regarding my provision in an earlier post that Rangers are still Rangers in almost every shape and form.

First of all, I would thank everyone that reads my blog. At the end of the day, these are nothing but my own musings and although I will often diverge into other avenues of interest one thing that I continue to return to is the debate surrounding Rangers.  People will not always agree on football; indeed it would be a very dull and boring sport if someone were to remove the subjectivity from it.

Davie Boy Speaks To His Pals…..

August 8, 2012

 

This week has seen a little more promising news for Rangers. First of all we have had a return to football, not just to Rangers but to Ibrox stadium – something that I am sure is a promising sign to all associated with Rangers Football Club.

Newco – Yey or Nae ?!?!?

June 15, 2012

The ‘no to newco’ campaign is now well and truly in full force with fans of all SPL club clamouring the see a ‘newco’ Rangers ousted from the top tier of Scottish Football and to the bottom of the professional leagues: all in the name of ‘sporting integrity’ of course. Pffft

And It’s Goodnight From Him…..

May 9, 2012

There have been more twists and turns in the Ibrox takeover saga (I presume we can call it a saga by this stage) than on the ‘grand national’ at Blackpool Pleasure Beach.

Job losses 'likely' at Rangers

Having been busy in the past week or so with some of my own research I have found it impossible to keep up to date with everything going on at Ibrox – the rumours, the faux pas and the downright idiotic.

Anyway, as I have decided to take a minor sabbatical from my work, otherwise known as hitting a mental block, I may as well take out my frustrations over this here keyboard.

Time is ticking on my prediction, that when Rangers went into Administration, the outcome of the HMRC tribunal was neigh and with significant punishment upon Rangers. Due to the revelations since then regarding further P.A.Y.E liability to HMRC and others I am no longer so sure that such a result will be found immediately. I linger at hope of an outcome within the month of March but my once bold prediction is not more of a ‘slight inkling’.

So, what have the administrators been up to? Not a great deal if truth be told although that could all change during the time it takes me to write this piece.

Slowest…Admin….Ever

A lot has happened in the last week, oh sorry: that is a lie.

The stark reality is that Rangers appear to be ‘playing’ at Administration so far. It is not Rangers fault of course but rather that of the administrators themselves.

I would say that it is the lack of urgency toward admin matters from Duff&Phelps that seems to have allowed a sense of brazen confidence enter the Ibrox fray. Indeed, administration doesn’t really seem that big a deal – OK, so an ineffective COO and Director of football leave but hey-ho, no biggy eh? (more…)

The Rumour Mill……

February 20, 2012

I am just going to let this speak for itself.

Anyone that wishes to challenge the piece, feel free to do so.

Stolen from one of them Rangers forums.

WHYTE DEAL CAN BE CHALLENGED IN COURT – Exclusive

ANY Rangers shareholder has the legal right to challenge the deal which saw David Murray sell the club to Craig Whyte.

That is the astonishing news I can exclusively reveal, as Rangers supporters rally to save the club and free it from the tainted grip of the now seriously under scrutiny Whyte.

David Murray, in typical style, muddied the waters last week when he claimed there was no legal mechanism in place for him to reacquire Rangers, even if Whyte had not fulfilled the obligations he signed up to in the contract which transferred Murray’s majority shareholding to him for a quid.

However, what Murray did not make clear is that under corporate law, which covers the terms of the agreement, any Rangers shareholder who does not believe Whyte has fulfilled his obligations CAN challenge the deal in court.

There are 26,000 small Rangers shareholders out there and each and every one of them has the legal right to step up and challenge the legality of the deal.

That’s a lot of people from diverse backgrounds. And the 26,000 MUST include Rangers supporters who are lawyers, accountants , wealthy and successful businessmen, and others who know the ins and outs of corporate law and takeovers.

I believe one of them may be preparing just such a move. And it would explode as a bombshell for the beleaguered Whyte.

It would also of course drag David Murray back into the mess, though some would say he has a moral obligation to help clean it up, as the mess was of his own making.

However, any such move, would also make it easier for Paul Murray to move in and start returning Rangers to a sound and safe financial footing.

In fact, if more than one Rangers shareholder instigates a move against Whyte, that would put the Whyte camp under even more pressure and allow the contract between him and Murray to be forensically examined under the public gaze in open court.

Rangers supporters would then get the chance to see just what conditions David applied to the contract which he and Whyte signed, the deal which as led to Rangers being placed in administration and having ten points deducted, effectively handing the title to Celtic.

…..AND…..

THERE will be more tomorrow on this astonishing development and how it could even boost the Ibrox finances.

Speaking too Soon?? The ‘Old – Guard’

February 11, 2012

It would appear that, as sure as the sun doth rise – the debate over Rangers past shall continue. In the past week Craig Whyte has released a trendy niche of sound bites in relation to the ormer Ibrox rear-guard, and by this I do not refer to Messer’s Gough and Brown.

The slagging match continues; and I use the word ‘slagging with’ deft apt: that’s all that it is.

Graham Spiers

February 4, 2012

 

A short but straight to the point blog.

I have been unfortunate enough to listen to the Clyde 1 Radio Phone in today and spent my time cringing at the Rangers fans that were calling in.

The personal attack on Graham Spiers toward the end of the show was all to similar to the ones that i have suffered myself and on a similar level – laughably so. (more…)
