Cenkos involvement worth attention


There is a realisation that the information issued by Craig Whyte last week is only the beginning of what promises to be weeks of salacious details.  Ownership of Ibrox, Murray Park and other assets purchased by Sevco 5088, a company which Charles Green signed a Companies House form for on 27 December 2012, but which Craig Whyte claims to be a significant interest holder in, is in doubt.

This matter could take weeks to play out and months, or longer, to settle.  The evidence provided thus far is interesting but courts are notoriously more concerned by paperwork than recorded conversations.  If Craig Whyte has paperwork to back his claims he will feel by far the more comfortable of the two parties.

Of more immediate concern will be what Cenkos Securities knew.  Cenkos were the Nominated Advisors for Rangers International’s recent Initial Public Offering and Newco’s directors would have been required to inform them of any claim over assets, no matter how spurious or disputed.

City Regulators move quicker than the courts and will want early information on when Whyte’s claims were made, what was revealed to Cenkos and how the board minute-d these matters.  Keep your eye on this one.

Having used David Longmuir to get at SFL clubs in an attempt to sink league reconstruction plans Charles Green, who has made no secret of his opposition to them, turned to St Mirren chairman Stuart Gilmour.  Gilmour, who was incandescent with outrage last year when SFL clubs refused to make a space in their top flight for Newco, plans to acquiesce.

He should reconsider before the St Mirren board meet to discuss this on Wednesday.

    I know both Stewart and Colin Gilmour from my cricket days. I thought both were very much St Mirren supporters. Neither had any affection for Rangers. My feeling on Stewart Gilmour is that this is purely business. He has been running St Mirren on the edge for some time. The income from games against the dearly departed Rankers was as important as games against us and he like most of the SPL Chairmen wanted that back as soon as possible in the Sevco form.



    That is the way I read it anyway.



    If Colin has now become a Celtic supporter then I would be a bit surprised but not overally so and he nor Stewart had any anymosity to Celtic. Davie Hay used to be and probably still is a frequent visitor to Ferguslie Cricket ground and was always warmly welcomed.

    Absolutely ….. none are so blind as those who WILL NOT see…… both Whyte and greengo are only interested in extorting money out of any dire situation surrounding any business…… That’s their ‘ Business’ …… That’s what they do …….still gobsmacked as to why the media / establishment didn’t ‘see’ what was going on …..LOL

  4. Evening



    I was over at a family get together last night and it was the usual drink and fine food fuelled evening discussing the bigger things in our lives including, inevitably, the Celts. Equally inevitably there was no agreement as to where we stand as both team and club but there was one point we did agree on and that is the overuse of the word ‘legend’ when applied to Celts both past and present.



    To be a ‘legend’ it was felt you had to have been a great player or manager whose achievements were pretty well known to those who did not witness them in the flesh.



    The names we unreservedly included were Willie Maley, Jock Stein, Patsy Gallacher, Jimmy McGrory, Billy McNeill, Jimmy Johnstone and Henrik Larsson with the likes of Murdoch, McGrain, John Thomson and Charlie Tully being proposed by some but not all.



    A useless discussion perhaps but I’ll be more discerning in my application of the word in future.

    Re: the rally yesterday – excellent. Stood near the CQN Banner, but never took the opportunity to introde myself – too shy!! Name badges would be good the next time – although Wee BGFC wasnt shy in introducing himself!



    Thought JF spoke well. As others have said, she did have a political thrust to her speech, but that was inevitable – this is a politically targetted bill.



    McMahon was fairly brief, but spoke well. Having someone inside the Parliament arguing against the Bill is absolutely crucial – without a locus on the inside, it will be much more difficult for the dissenting voices to be heard, much less listened to.



    Saw the BBC referred to us as an ‘offshoot’ or splinter group or something similar, trying perhaps to marginalise the very broad cohort of fans in attendance. From what I could see, there was a good mix which probably was representative of the wider Celtic support. In my own wee gang we had a Research Manager, an NHS 24 Nurse, a Key Housing support staff member, a primary school and a secondary school child, and a 72 year old who was on his first ever protest.



    Disappointingly, I saw a fellow poster suggest that there was something unrepresentative about those who chose to attend. If he/she was there in person, then fine; if they were not there in person, they are basing those comments on their own inherant bias, rather than any evidence.



    Enjoying the latest from Sir Whyte, but Imagine the furore if anyone from Celtic spoke in the terms used by Chuckles – would be the lead on every news bulletin. This man is shaming our country, and hardly a word against him.

    If chuckles was paid a pound for every word hes blurted out since he arrived. .. the zombies would really be onto something



    Thom the tim


    It was the most blatant attempts of gamesmanship on a grand scale. Noticed when he was facing a pen he held the ball then walked right up to each player to eyeball them. He also spoke to each as the ref stood telling him to go back to his line…. before then going to the post to clean his boots


    When the pen was taken he would kick the ball down the park to his own team so they had the ball in hand when they got to the spot.


    The fact he was on a yellow makes it even worse… ref should have warned him first time that any repeat would mean a second yellow
