Boycott call as Celtic fans money promised to re-establish Rangers


The Gang of 10 SPL club who will meet next week will decide whether or not we have a morally sound and ethically administered league. The meeting wasn’t announced three hours before overtures were being made on terms a Rangers Newco would be prepared to agree to in order to win their backing.

Effectively, the other 10 will asked to hold their noses, put all moral judgement aside and tell Rangers Newco the terms they need to agree to in order to get back into the SPL, retain their history and limit consequences of the alleged improper registration of players. Some of those hoping to front a Rangers Newco are prepared to do whatever is necessary to get back on a level playing field with those who have spent the last 20 years playing honest football and paying their taxes.

The question to be considered is not just what is ethically right in sport; it’s more personal than that. This is about what is going to happen to your money, the football club that defines who you are, and your relationship with the game for the rest of your life.

The schemers and cheats are not beaten and they are not going to give up. There is no honour, no ‘dignity’, no moral compass that understands there are consequences for decades of rampant abuse. All there is, is a sense of entitlement that I struggle to comprehend.

That sense of entitlement is about to promise bucket loads of your cash to someone else in order to restore the old certainties. This time, they are not even going to use the tax man’s money, they are going to use YOUR money. The money you put into the game will be distributed and used to flush the smaller clubs, who will in turn restore Rangers to their position of ascendency.

This is not sport, it’s a disgusting abuse of Celtic fans. You are not even being asked, you are being expected to open your wallets and pay whatever price it takes to put Rangers back on top.

I have never called for a boycott of a newspaper, never mind a football game, but this is not football anymore. We cannot be party to this. It is not a passing-issue either. Rules are being made with consequences that could last 100 years.

You have suffered from decades of malpractice and have earned the right to go to Ibrox in two weeks to enjoy the reflection of honest endeavour. After this, our next away game will be at Kilmarnock. If the Gang of 10 attempt an insurrection using your money, join me in a picket outside Celtic Park when these tickets are available for sale, and outside the away gates at Rugby Park on game day, to explain to Celtic fans the consequences of supporting the clubs who would use your money to establish a new Rangers.

Unite and bring the full power of Celtic against those who would rather do a deal with the devil than establish an honest, even, playing field.

If the Gang of 10 give Rangers Newco their way, using your money, we cannot go back to an away game, not this season, not ever. We must demand this discipline from each other and insist the club refuse all away tickets.

Having paid our taxes, registered footballers in an honest manner and brought international acclaim to Scottish football, the Celtic Movement is being corrupted by the lowest common denominator.

Our magnificent sporting institution is being destroyed. For the love of all that is decent and meritocratic in the game, we need help from England, Europe or wherever to move out of Scottish football.

I am just about finished with the entire, corrupt, shambles that masquerades as a sport.

  1. The Spirit of Arthur Lee on

    People said we couldn’t play


    The called us foul-mothed yobs


    But the only notes that really count


    Are the ones that come in wads



    They all drowned when the air turned blue


    ‘Cos we didn’t give a toss


    Filthy lucre, ain’t nothing new


    But we all get cash from the chaos



    The time is right to do it now


    The greatest rock’n’roll swindle


    The time is right to do it now

  2. the long wait is over on

    Any money I put into football is for the benefit of Celtic.



    No one else.

  3. Credit where it’s due.


    Step forward, Charlie Nicholas – The Cannonball Kid


    In the Daily Express/Star


    Charlie says ” Livingston were dumped into Division Three after going into administration for a second time in 2009 and the same should happen to any Rangers team that re-emerges from the current club being dissolved.” Charlie went on ” There can be no special clauses. No rewriting the SPL Rule Book to suit certain agendas because there’s currently nothing in their regulations about dealing with a club that went into liquidation.”


    Well said!


    The Cannonball Kid


    Hail! Hail!


    P.S. I apologise can’t do the link-thing :o(

  4. Powerful stuff Paul.



    We can’t stand idly by and let this happen. We as a support must unite against this disgrace. I was against a boycott before but if this is the alley that they and the rest of the SPL dross a willing to venture down, then it has my full support.



    We can’t let the cheats win.



    Hail Hail!!!!

  5. Awe_Naw_No_Annoni_Oan_Anaw_Noo on

    It´s a sham so it is.




    For once in my life I’ve got something to say


    I wanna say it now for now is today


    A love has been given so why not enjoy


    So let’s all grab and let’s all enjoy



    If the Tims are united then we’ll never be divided


    If the Tims are united then we’ll never be divided



    Just take a look around you


    What do you see


    Tims with feelings like you and me


    Understand him, he’ll understand you


    For you are him, and he is you



    If the Tims are united then we’ll never be divided


    If the Tims are united then we’ll never be divided


    If the Tims are united then we’ll never be divided


    If the Tims are united then we’ll never be divided



    I don’t want to be rejected


    I don’t want to be denied


    Then its not my misfortune


    That I’ve opened up your eyes



    Freedom is given


    Speak how you feel


    I have no freedom


    How do you feel


    They can lie to my face


    But not to my heart


    If we stand together


    It will just be the start



    If the Tims are united then we’ll never be divided


    If the Tims are united then we’ll never be divided




    Hail Hail

  6. Jeg er Neil Lennon-Greeninbingley on

    I will join any picket line any time, anywhere, and do everything in my (small) power to stop this state-sponsored corruption in its tracks.


    Surely our hopes lie with Europe – they are not about to sit idly by and watch such a disgusting abuse take place?

  7. James Forrest is The Emperor of Ice Cream on

    I’ll be there, on the picket line, every game from now until the end.



    Celtic, as a club, should refuse away tickets too, to make it official.



    I said yesterday that meeting was to agree a fait accompli and screw us.



    I hate being right.

  8. From Garngad to Croy I am Neil Lennon. on

    Well said Paul



    I would rather watch Celtic in the Junior League !

  9. Paul 67



    I will be surprised if Aberdeen and Hibs go along with it, but wait see time I suppose.



    We hold the cards. a cash strapped hun is just that, it will not enhance the other clubs bank balances, they know that.



    I would be surprised if the club are not in talks with uefa either.



    As for a boycott, that would work, no doubt about it.

  10. now, that is a post worth saving !!!!!



    there is a lot of dumb and dumber in our country.


    you only have to see how the last weeks have unfolded


    to realise this.


    keep telling it, how it is…. CQN.


    protecting our integrity, ethics and morality should always be no 1.


    we have the power… to change things for the good.. long term.



  11. Strong stuff Paul, we must stand together in this.



    “any part of Celtic that needs rangers, l am prepared to lose”



    It is over l fear, Scotland would much rather have a *anger than a Celtic.That my friend is what is going to finish football for me and many others in this country.




  12. Yesterday’s article had the gang of 10 screwing Ranjurs, today’s is saying they will save them. I’m more inclined to believe this one.

  13. If a newco is allowed to compete in the SPL without sanction it is a very short sighted decision. Scottish Football would be an international laughing stock…. all credibility and sporting integrity (such as it is) would be gone. No one wants to buy a rigged competition, the public who watch the game here and abroad are not stupid and should not be treated as though they are. It would take the Scottish game at least a generation to recover from this. Think very carefully and look ahead before allowing this.

  14. Well said Paul



    it is increasingly obvious that there is no limit in how low the hun can go

  15. No to a newco in the SPL.



    Yes to a boycott of all away games.



    Let’s do this.
