I may have slightly embellished our chief exec with my headline but that’s about the measure of Peter Lawwell’s message this afternoon. He told the BBC, “We don’t rely on any other club. We are in a decent position, we’re very strong.
“We have a stand-alone strategy, a stand-alone financial plan and a robustness hopefully that will take us through that.
“Times are pretty tough. I don’t think it’s appropriate for us to talk about any individual club, these things are hypothetical at the moment.
“I think we’ve a view, a very strong view on certain circumstances but we’ll only share that at the right time.”
He said, contemplating a plate of ice cream and jelly after lunch. He really should order 60,000 small tubs of both for our last home game.
Thanks and congratulations to everyone who participated in the CQN Music Quiz in aid of the Vanessa Riddle Appeal on Saturday night. The room was packed, not for the first time at a CQN Quiz, extra seats had to be commandeered from elsewhere, and a great night was had by all.
£492.53 was raised on the night on top of £800 from the purchase of online tickets and donations. Special thanks to Frank O’Hagan – new album available here – who provided musical entertainment at the end of the quiz. Thanks also to the Stornoway Celts, who provided prizes, as well as Celticrollercoaster and Tony Warrington, for selling badges and CQN Magazines respectively to aid funds.
The night would not have happened without the enormous preparation and work by Taggsybhoy, aided on the night by Mrs Taggsybhoy and young Joe – thank you. This evening Taggsybhoy will put a signed Celtic top donated by Penfold onto eBay to bring the week’s efforts to a close. I’ll let you know when it’s live.
