Green, Murray and transubstantiation


You couldn’t script that lot.  Charles-this is probably the worst Rangers team you have ever seen-Green is back, like a dose of something you never wanted first time around, appointed late on the day Rangers International receive a request for an Emergency General Meeting from rebel (hmm) shareholders.  The reason given to the Stock Market for his appointment was nothing to do with the EGM request, so don’t go implying it was a reactionary panic measure.

And who is behind the EGM request?  None other than Paul Murray, one of the few responsible for ensuring that Rangers FC (in liquidation) ran their affairs in good order.  His credentials for the position of Ibrox powerbroker are impeccable.

Before the news of the EGM was released, the Herald suggested, “Some informed sources believe the club will run out of money during this season”, as the Celtic online community has been asserting since their interims were published.

And yes, you noticed the transubstantiation from club to company.  I think it goes:

A club will run out of money.
A company ran out of money.

Keep the league flag flying high.

    if we win 10 in a row the berz will be jumping aff that dilapidated roof of theirs…if they are still about:)




    From what we are hearing, it is likely that theywould fall through the roof before they had the chance to jump !

  7. OKhen



    I see that the losing £1m per month comes from the March 2013 interim accounts…



    but I understand that it is the natural state of affairs for a club to be losing millions throughout the season and then get a huge cash injection from a single months season ticket sales.



    So does this million per month loss annualise to a loss of £12m with season ticket money included? Do we know they haven’t reduced costs since then?

  8. Ewan Murray (Guardian) saying on Shortbread that Sevco asked to be fined for breaching rule 14…now they are complaining about it!




  9. The Herald and the BBC broke ranks yesterday and questioned the viability of new club. Significant development imo. Anyway, league flag day, thanks to Sky TV friendly kick off times, I won’t be there, so enjoy bhoys ! These are good days we are living !!





    The huns asked for a fine as punishment,knowing they would not pay it,instead of other punishments,which they would casually ignore.



    Aye,the SFA were stuck between a rock and a hard place.



    Should just have kicked them out,get it over and done with.

    Flag day at Celtic Park – an international experience




    You could say that Celtic don’t really play domestic football. Every game that Celtic play is feverishly followed online and on TV by an international audience that spreads around the world. During this week’s Champions League qualifier at Celtic Park against ‘kick-anything-in-green-and-white’ Elfsborg, there were blockings, bitter feuds, fake knock-downs, chopped-off points, wolf whistles and near misses and that was just on Twitter.



    Social media comes alive during a Celtic game and a lot of that is due to the international audience getting involved in the game and expressing their passion through digital media wherever they can. So when unsung hero John Keane raises the championship flag today it will be an international occasion and countless numbers of fans will be sharing the moment virtually in clubs and living rooms around the world.



    The opposition may be domestic and Neil Lennon will be demanding stronger domestic performances to maintain the 10-in-a-row momentum, but you can’t help thinking that the next seven days will set the tone for the rest of the season. There’s the away leg of the Champions League qualifier in Sweden of course (much more on that in our match build-up next week) and the Dublin Decider against Liverpool in Dublin next Saturday. If you read between the lines in what Neil Lennon has been saying recently, the addition of at least one but perhaps two new Celtic strikers is dependent upon qualification for the group stages.



    ‘We try to cut through the dross and echo the voice of the fans, who want to hear the thunder without the doom and gloom of an Ibrox-tinted media.’


    If you’re a Scottish-based fan living within easy reach of Celtic Park, the Liverpool game will seem nothing more than a meaningless friendly, which of course is what it is. But tickets been sold out for months and the match looks set to be the sort of green and white party that could give birth to a new generation of Irish Celtic fans and further deepen the international fan base – an unmissable celebration of Celtic Football Club and important for the future of the club.





    The Republic of Football team will be covering the game in Dublin and the team is growing to reflect the international nature of the fan base. Kenyan journo Collins Okinyo will soon be back with his view of Celtic from Africa with a profile of the mercurial Efe Ambrose. Paul Murty will be contributing on the views of Celtic fans from the US and next week we’ll have a profile of new bhoy Derk Boerrigter by Dutch journo and Ajax fan Babette van Haaren. We’ve also got a Spanish journalist who will be contributing his views on Celtic from a European perspective – more on that to come during the season.



    All of these innovations are made possible though the power of social media as we try to cut through the dross and echo the voice of the fans, who want to hear the thunder without the doom and gloom of an Ibrox-tinted media.



    It’s set to be a thunderous season

    ‘As a Matter of FACT He’s Back..Did You Miss Him..? Yea..’



    Green geared for Gers glory





    Charles Green has told Rangers boss Ally McCoist that simply winning the league will not be enough this season.



    McCoist delivered the Third Division title last term and is under pressure to win the new Scottish League 1 this time.



    But former chief executive Green – who is to return to Rangers as a consultant – believes the Light Blues boss must also win one of the cups.



    Speaking as Gers prepare to take on Forfar in the Scottish League Cup, Green told the Scottish Sun: “This year is a different year. He has had a pre-season and he has been able to sign players.



    “Ally has got to win the league – and got to win a cup. That’s the stark reality of life.



    “Ally is a fantastic guy. He is brilliant with the players, fans and media.



    “But first and foremost, a manager has to win matches and has to win competitions.



    “He knows he has to win the league and, in my opinion, has to win a cup as well. If he doesn’t do that, he has a problem.”



    Green’s return was announced hours before it was revealed that a group of shareholders want the removal of key board members, including new CEO Craig Mather.



    Green added: “What is happening now is not what Rangers need.



    “Rangers need stability. If I can help with the stability, I will.”….Ooofft..




  14. Snake Plissken on

    Euan Murray to be fair only said “What if it emerged that someone from Rangers asked for a fine instead of an alternative punishment?”



    It sounded rather knowing though.

    And yes, you noticed the transubstantiation from club to company. I think it goes:



    A club will run out of money.


    A company ran out of money.




    Reminds me of Wiggy on shortbread a while back waffling about how it was “the business side of things” that got into financial difficulties.



    And what sort of business would a football club be involved in Gordon? Football by any chance?

  17. twists n turns on

    Hmmmmm…is it worth taking some shares out in hartleys jelly and walls ice cream?

  18. I recall last year being astounded of forehead when it was revealed that oldco were ‘negotiating’ penalties to be imposed on them by the SPL/SFA… All true it seems – whatever happened to a ruling body handing down punishment for rules broken?



    Anyways….everyone enjoy your afternoons/evenings… In the bright and blustery north east it’ll be flag day on the TV.

  19. Afternoon bhoys and ghirls from a hot hun free mountain valley.



    Heard EG saying that about the fine……now he obviously knows it to be true,so why not print it ???

    Maybe he knows Charlotte’s going to bring this into the public domain.

  21. Stairheedrammy on

    Murray hinted that someone REPRESENTING Sevco asked for the fine- who at the SFA would represent Sevco?
