The Baw Is Burst – Let’s Go Home…

July 12, 2012

 

Another month and STILL this saga looks no closer to an end point.

I predicted that there would be no form of Rangers in any league for next season; i am becoming more and more sure that this will now be the case.

Preferred Bidder? There Needs To Be A Bid First……

DUFF AND PHELPS, the administrators of Rangers Football Club, issued the following statement today.

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?

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…)

A Whole Load Of Nothing……

February 16, 2012

As predicted – todays news conference with administrators was a bit of a non-event.

No information regarding the clubs finances were revealed – nor did i expect any to be. (more…)

Should I Stay Or…Will I Be Made To Go?

February 14, 2012

Administration was today forced upon Rangers quicker than even the most prevalent of critics could have imagined. In 24hours Rangers went from lodging papers to being faced with a potential HMRC induced administrator. As it stands – there now appears to be a further £9million in tax liability for P.A.Y.E since May 2011. This is strange – along with the rest of the money that is apparently posted missing, does Craig Whyte really have Rangers interests at heart? Not a chance…. (more…)

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.
