Celtic fans get stuck into our reason for being, nomad moot


Congratulations to The Kano Foundation for their magnificent fifth annual charity dinner on Saturday.  The Kano story is beyond incredible and a credit to those who call ourselves Celtic fans – whether you are involved with them or not.

Well done also to everyone who participated in the Celtic Foundation Zip Slide across Celtic Park on Saturday, in aid of children’s’ charities.  It was exhilarating and is sure to be repeated.  A weekend without Celtic and hundreds of Celtic fans get stuck into our reason for being.

They can blame the last guys for the lack of commercial revenue streams, or for paying incompetent coaches too much money.  They can even blame them for over-ambition when it came to funding the playing squad, but for all of its short corporate life, Rangers International PLC’s previous board members have been able to produce accounts on time and all received approval from authorised nominated advisers.

If the new board members are unable to deliver a nominated adviser, blaming the old board, as one newspaper tried today: “largely because of the scorched earth policy implemented by the previous board in the last days of the Mike Ashley empire – they must do so before the City shuts down for the Easter holiday”, would be both dishonest and a very worrying (for some) departure from a company which seeks to build its corporate reputation.

This entire question should be moot.  Mike Ashely didn’t need to be on the newco board to exert the control he needed with an 8% share and neither would Dave King.  King could easily take a back seat and appoint trusted men of stature who would breeze the nomad requirements.  We can only speculate as to why King NEEDS to be on the board, and don’t count on anyone who can get close enough to King, or his PR, asking this question.  The entire uncertainty is an unnecessary nonsense.

  1. I’ll probably get banned off of this site cause you only want to talk about Celli, but Scottish football is about more clubs than just yours.



    I have read a lot of you guys this weekend as my mate blogs on here, and thought it was about time you got another point of view.



    Cellic are playing well but the treble wont happen, not a chance.



    Rangers will get stronger very quickly, and you wont have it all your own way for long, so enjoy it while it lasts

    Well done to everyone on the zip-line over the weekend. Excellent work.



    I’m almost getting tired of laughing at this mob across the city… Almost.

  3. The thing is and I was saying this in the pub yesterday, when things are quite and no news is coming out you just know the sheet about to hit the twirling thing on the ceiling, because if there was any good news the SMSM would be blasting it on the air waves, and running out of ink in the papers, get the popcorn in guys.

  4. Son of Gabriel on






    If the treble doesnt happen we’ll still be here going for it next year, where will your team be? Still in the ground or are you following the new lot who are on pay-day loans?



    Back to your hole sunny boy.

  5. “good thing is that the longer they fail to report the truth the more likely it is that the current incarnation will go the same way as the previous ones.”



    Spot on………………leave them to it.

  6. Son of Gabriel on






    Thank you.



    I’d be embarrassed had I actually been chasing it.

  7. billbear


    welcome -a blog open to all provided the rules are follow followed



    will we win the treble , maybe maybe not, but we are still in with a chance

  8. Son of Gabriel



    My Team will always be Rangers, we will be in the same league as Cellic next year and you will know all about it.



    Stuart will get us moving and the 3 bears money will be spent wisely. The team really looked the part for the last ten minutes on Saturday, and it will only get better.

  9. Four green fields



    You cant use that language look at the state you swedish so called striker has got himself in, the book will be thrown at him and he deserves it.

  10. thomthethim for Oscar OK on



    Not for the first time have you posted a witty retort to a post.



    The same retort that I was thinking of posting, only for you to have got there first.



    You have a fantastic sense of humour……..similar to my own!!! : > )

  11. “Rangers will get stronger very quickly, and you wont have it all your own way for long”.




  12. billbear @12:52 ,



    “I’ll probably get banned off of this site…”



    You seem a very civil and to the point person, so if you maintain that then hopefully not. You make a lot of of sense for a bear, however it’s all relative.



    “Rangers will get stronger very quickly, and you wont have it all your own way for long, so enjoy it while it lasts”



    See what I mean!

  13. FourGreenFields on

    What language ?



    Telling you that your club died and your now watching a not very good tribute act , I know the truth hurts .

    Gaeroid………….nailed it mate, exactly my thoughts



    “good thing is that the longer they fail to report the truth the more likely it is that the current incarnation will go the same way as the previous ones.”



    Hell mend thum



    And so say all of us. Indeed evidence in the last few moments “that there are none so blind as those that cannot see”


    Apparently being up to their knees in Fenian blood is ok but being referred to as a HUN is sectarian. You couldn’t make it up. If they want to stop being referred to as HUNS then they need to stop acting like HUNS.

  15. Regarding a possible loan move for Hendo. I think you have to assume Ronny and his team will have individual goals and aims set out for each player and at the same time will know how achievable these are for each player given their current squad status etc etc.



    To mature both as a player and as a man you need regular first team football and to move out of your comfort zone. This potential loan move would be well managed and is in the modern game teams develope talent to that higher level. In contrast to what some have said regarding this, our youth players become stale because they haven’t been shipped out.



    Do you think Denayer has grown as a man and a footballer since he move to Celtic?

  16. “Rangers will get stronger very quickly, and you wont have it all your own way for long”.



    We welcome the challenge.



    But in the meantime, for every £1 Sevco spend, we’ll spend £100. And for every £1 we owe, Sevco owe £10 (subject to confirmation by Paul’s expert financial analysis!).
