Directors bail as court orders served


Walls are closing in on Dave King with the news that the Takeover Panel were granted a court order to force the Newco chairman to offer to comply with count instructions that he buy out shareholders outside his concert party.  Money for the offer, totalling £11m, has to be in place before it can be made, which is the sticking point.

While all of this MAY be no more than an administrative oversight, Newco have just announced the resignation of two directors: Paul Murray and Barry Scott.  Murray, a director of former Rangers, has been an absolute charm.  How Newco will survive without his Midas Touch is unknown.

Directors of a business are liable for its conduct, have a duty to protect the interests of all shareholders and creditors.  If they fail in this duty, they can be prosecuted.  Paul Murray was a close ally of King, especially during the years the Glib and Shameless one agitated to get control of the club he supported all of its life.  To paraphrase Deepthroat, follow the rats off the ship.

The Newco experiment has failed.  It is a shambles at every level, drowning in toxicity, with regulatory, legal and funding challenges out with its control – and things are not going too well on the field either.

Remember, current custodians and fans groups chased the Easdales (actual benefactors) and one of Europe’s richest men (who loaned Newco five players), out of town.  For what? They knew the money they had.  They knew there would not be a Nomad in place “within 48 hours”.  They were not Fergus McCann-type newbies to football, they knew the resources required to run a football club.

They knew all of this better than you or I, but we were the ones pointing out the blatantly obvious.

Where is the Mea Culpa from those who led the fans?  Who is there left with clean hands?  When will fans be told how bad things actually are (they are very bad, btw)?

    Stovies has got to be lamb or mutton leftovers.



    Any other meat just isn’t right.





    Almost as rare as a Morelos goal against Celtic – I actually agree with Ernie! ????



    I also have a fiend who puts steak sliced into stovies as well. It’s very good!





  2. ERNIE LYNCH, mum always used beef sausages for some reason, maybe tasted better.hh.

  3. Mahe the Madman on



    Thanks for that but just to clarify. Corned beef,,do you mean the thing in a can or the oul fatty tough joint of beef that was cooked for ages with a touch of vinegar and herbs ?


    The cans I knew as a boy but wont eat the stuff


    What they called corned beef here in the states I cant stand,,,cooked in oven for hours. Its similar to a pot roast in some ways,,have heard my mate from Tallaght say his ma made it,,my Belfast ma certainly didnt.


    Have you yourself ever eaten white pudding in batter ?


    If yes was the reason drink , curiosity , nourishment , nostalgia ?


    Thanks again. Hail Hail





    That’s why I’ve always been sceptical about his “rumoured” return, it’s a Orc fantasy that would propel them back in to the Billy Bigot Baws arena, any wedge he’s got squirrelled away will being staying put, his kind don’t weigh on for anything.

    Cheers! It’s worth a try. Desperate for some square sausage here.





    In my strange but wonderful wee home town of Kilwinning,a request to the local butcher for






    will always achieve the desired result. I have little faith that



    A pound,please,of square sausage/LORNE sausage,trapezoid et al



    would put a smile on my face or a filling in my well- fired roll.



    Point being,none of us is wrong,we are all correct based on our local upbringing. Btw,the first time I ever saw round felt sausage as a version of slice was in a butcher’s shop in Saltcoats.



    Damn nice it was too,decent bit of onion in it. Premises owned by a Charles…




  7. Steven Gerrard is sitting there thinking:



    * Entire team got assaulted after losing a Cup Final


    * Known as Rainjurz so as to prevent social unrest


    * Skint beyond belief


    * Have no credit facilities


    * Earn only a pittance from TV revenue


    * Earn only a pittance from domestic competition revenue


    * Have only one real source of income the old Rainjurz support


    * Season Ticket money covers the wage bill and not much else


    * Indebted to the tune of £18m in crisis loans


    * In the grip of a dishonest absentee landlord crook


    * Being overseen by a clueless board of stuck-in-the-headlights pure ragin amateurs


    * Have no manager and little prospect of being able to afford a good one


    * Have a playing squad of journeymen


    * Back-to-back empty trophy cabinets


    * Will struggle badly to qualify for European football proper


    * Will have to borrow further to keep the lights on in the big goose


    * Have no other sizeable revenue streams


    * Have no prospect of being able to change circumstances, anytime soon


    * More managers than points against Celtic.


    * Can’t wear green boots


    * Have to answer to the Onion Bears

    Former Liverpool midfielder John Barnes has warned Steven Gerrard not to consider taking the Rangers job as competing with Celtic is an almost impossible job.


    Gerrard said on Tuesday that he had held ‘positive talks’ over the vacant managerial position at Ibrox following the sacking of Graeme Murty.


    But ex-Celtic boss Barnes believes that the former Liverpool captain will be set up to fail if he takes the job.

  9. MAHE THE MADMAN ,while on holiday in florida, went to a place called busch gardens bit like blackpool pleasure beach with sun, got a corned beef sandwich from one of the vendors, oh my god nothing like what we have hear, tasted like salt pork awful.hh.

  10. flippin heck, what id give now for a square sausage on a well fired roll, heavenly.hh.

  11. whitedoghunch on

  12. Mahe the Madman on

    Big Packy,


    its fecking disgusting is what they call corned beef here youre right there.. Wondered about making my own black pudding,,just cant get enough, only to discover fresh blood is illegal in California. Powdered blood only. Dont know.


    Pastrami,,biscuits and gravy,,meatloaf,,and they do a damn good burger in many parts.


    That In and Out burger is a good munch. Forget a decent fish supper though.


    Hail Hail





    I know what you mean. But DAVIDOPOULOS has provided a marvellous step-by -step recipe for it.



    It’s foolproof,mate. I tried it a few years back,wunderbar.



    Useless sod canny point me in the direction of a decent roll,mind…

  14. WDH – Is Cinc Sentits still top notch amigo? My daughter is going to Barca in August.





  15. mike in toronto on

    Corned beef from a tin … mixed up with mashed potatoes and lots of salt and butter … lovely.



    Big Packy …. you cant judge a Corned beef sandwich by going to disneyland …. FFS man! that’s like going to govan for your first game of football …. of course, it is going to leave a bad taste in your mouth!



    good corned beef is a jewish deli staple ….lovely … try Schwartz’ in Montreal or Katz’ or 2nd avenue deli in New York …. when you come to TO, I’ll get you some good kosher deli…. not sure if you could bring it back trhough customs for F& B… but we can try!

  16. think ive mentioned before about mr sonny henderson, the taxi driver, when rangers win he puts his 32 red top on, when they get beat puts his liverpool top on, came up to me today that w—-r rodgers will be gone next season, stevie g is coming and bringing the best youth players in liverpool, also big money investment, i just had to laugh as did most of the other cab drivers, a mix of man u and liverpool fans, they really do believe in santa clause hh.






    Maybe we should just point at it. Mouth watering. Tongue hanging out.



    That’s pretty much all I can manage anyway when I see it for the first time in six months or so!

  18. mike in toronto on

    WDH … love my goat curry or a goat roti… washed down with a Ting! cant beat it.





    Sausages in the steak pie,now yer talking.

  20. Alasdair MacLean on

    Just home from work to find the housemates have descended into the murky twighlight world of skwerr and black……

  21. BOBBY MURDOCH’S CURLED-UP WINKLEPICKERS, bobby how you doin pal, hope your feeling better.hh.

  22. Afternoon again



    At a slight tangent to culinary matters- do you still get such a thing as Potted Meat. Mind getting presented with this with raw onion and even at 4 not wanting to know what was in it.




  23. mike in toronto on

    BMCUWP … sausages AND kidney in the steak pie … the best ….



    although I hate to say this lads…. but the Aussie pies are the best I have ever had …. much better than the ones in Scotland.

  24. MIKE IN TORONTO, how are you and seamus, that sandwich was horrible pal, but didnt have any issues in toronto, in fact got a hot dog from one of the vendors outside the blue jays stadium, it was spot on.hh.

  25. P67 – “To paraphrase Deepthroat, follow the rats off the ship.”




    Sorry, maybe it’s just me – I’m sure there are others on here much more familiar with it – but I don’t recall Linda saying that in the movie?



    I don’t really recall her speaking much at all, to be honest.




  26. whitedoghunch on

    Tony, Yes would be my number 1 booking, check though as in years gone past he would close August to travel/eat often to Toronto where he has family. Mail me if you want a wee guide and how many nights what style etc



    Mahe the Madman


    have you tried the Starbucks Sous Vide Egg Bites: Bacon & Gruyere


    available out your way might be decent ?





    only kiddin

  27. Corned beef with mashed totties with sibees through them anyone???




    D. :)





    AKA Potty Heid when I was a kid. Heavy on the pepper and gelatine,my Papa and I would hoover it up with a whack of square sliced-aye,that might confuse you all!-bread.



    Happy days. He introduced me to many a delicacy that most people would turn their nose up at. Difficult to lay hands on most of them now.
