Private Eye… Reasons for Craig Whytes Ban

June 14, 2012

THE full details can now be revealed why former owner Craig Whyte was banned for seven years from being a company director back in 2000 – a damaging fact that Whyte hid from football and City regulators when he acquired Rangers in May last year.

Dust thou art, and unto dust thou shalt return

June 13, 2012

It is currently 00.14am on Wednesday 13th June 2012.

If I were to sit down, ten years ago till this very day and tell people that Glasgow Rangers would be no more, ‘bankrupt’, ‘liquidated’, ‘kapeesh’  – however you wish to term it: I would have been laughed out of the company I found myself.

Indeed, that is now – unfortunately – the reality of the situation.

Green, Whyte…Gold?

May 17, 2012

In recent weeks we have seen the demise of Bill Miller, the death rattle of the Blue Knights and finally a ratified takeover by Mr Charles Green.

You would struggle to make it up: Whyte, Green …All Rangers need is former SPL Executive and current Caledonian Macbrayne Director Lex Gold on board for the conspiracy theorists to really start their work.

And It’s Goodnight From Him…..

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.

Helping No One: Pointless Propaganda

April 22, 2012

I find myself increasingly frustrated.

I take absolutely no pleasure in Rangers current situation, indeed it breaks my heart in the same way it would break the heart of any football fan to find their club in the same position.

Personally, I find myself as a realist. I don’t shirk or hide; I don’t blame or lash out at others. Rangers are in this situation because of the actions of a few. It is not the Rangers supporters fault no matter how many others would like to tar the support as being gullible and not asking questions. Utter bullshit! I am not here to point score; but the actions of a few do not surmount to genuine fans that paid their way year after year for a product.

The King Speaks…..

Only title win saved Rangers from going bust claims Dave King

This morning has greeted us with a statement from Mr Dave King. I am(perhaps) overly critical of the Rangers board of old.

Personally, and I do little to hide this, I would like a full and frank investigation into ALL of the following with regard to their involvement in the clubs affairs throughout the Murray and Whyte era’s: Dave King, David Murray, Paul Murray, Hugh Adams, Martin Bain, Craig Whyte, Alastair Johnstone, Campbell Ogilvie, John McClleland, Mike McGill, Gary Withey,  Andrew Ellis and Phil Betts.

In recent times we have seen the ‘old’ guard emerging from the woodwork to tell us exactly how they feel about Craig Whyte, his takeover etc.

Much of it stinks!

It doesn’t stink because I am a great believer in Craig Whyte – far from, but more because I believe that all of those mentioned above have been complicit in either recent or historic times of hiding information that they were privy to as members of the board.

I actually feel that some of them are trying to stay ahead of the game – to e-quit themselves of any public liability by suddenly becoming ‘tell tales’. The most recent, but by no means the only one has been Hugh Adams. Exactly where were you Sir, all of them years ago, when this practice was going on? It is all very good and well devulging your information now that the shit has hit the fan – but exactly where were you prior to this when things were going “well…”??

Exactly: Nowhere!

It is now the turn of Dave King. The man himself has been steeped in controversy in recent times over his own tax dealings in South Africa. Nevertheless the man is one of great wealth and one of stature in the field of business. So what did he have to say?
