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.

  1. “There was a positivity and excitement ahead of the new season and this was heightened by last weekend’s victory and slick performance against Albion Rovers.

    15.25 shortbread tell us the forfar score at last.

  3. pabloh – tremendous article from a quality journalist who after all the crap he took from the huntablishment actually turns now and expresses empathy for them



    I get confused myself in the ‘omnishambles’ so I’ll remember that line ‘ The more that sevco pretends to be rangers the more infirm it gets’ to keep me straight

    Please help me out.





    It’s probably on BBC2 Scotland only, but you should be able to see it if you set Region to Scotland. Hopefully anyway!

    many thanks , will road test it on Tuesday ,in Yorkshire, just to be safe.



  6. Good afternoon all.



    Feels strange setting off for The Park at 3.45 on a Saturday afternoon but really can’t wait to join in the celebrations this afternoon and to see a memorable performance.



    And perhaps a wee pre-game boost when the scores from the other games come in around 4.45…



    Gazebo time!

  8. The Honest Cover-up on

    Really looking forward to showing our appreciation to John Keane today.


    It’s quite fitting that he raises the flag on at a time where the newco across the city are in utter disarray.


    There are many differences between the rebuilding job facing McCann in 1994 and that facing Sevco today. One of those differences, as well as having good men like Keane involved. Is the attitude of the Celtic fans.


    At the time I remember our long term target being talked about as “competing for the league and in Europe”. At Sevco, the rhetoric from the supporters and the hierarchy has been about “regaining our rightful place at the top of Scottish football”. Sorry, but that place belongs to the most skilful, hard working team that particular year. The idea that being top dog is the given “right” of a particular club (especially one just a year old!) is ridiculous. Indeed, for all their supporters liked to boast about the old club’s 54 league titles, more often than not they did not win the league.


    Ironically it’s this attitude that will stop them becoming a competitive force. Instead of patiently building a decent team (why should it be a given that a skint new club should waltz through the divisions?!) around a sound business plan they have splurged fortunes on SPL players to satisfy their loathsome “we are the people” ethos. The news that they will run out money in a few months comes as no surprise to anyone who reads this blog. Once again the MSM are playing catch up. I look forward to my second helpings and think about the remarkable, selfless gesture from John Keane


    God bless Mr Keane. Hail hail!

    I said to someone on here this morning, may have been Pfayr, that the Sevco situation was past the point of being funny.



    I might have jumped the gun a wee bit there.



    Those statements are beyond parody.



    Sevco – entertaining in ways we never thought possible.

  11. HT over here in sunny Stockholm, AIK 1 Elfsborg 0, goal from a corner kick.



    Bang Bang playing target man in a 4411 system.




  12. Like to add my voice to the tremendous outpouring of appreciation for the Legend John Keane. I hope its a memorable day for him and for all at Celtic Park.



    Re The Football hope that Derk starts and that new bhoys Amido & Steven get game time. If 2 of the 4 bought become first team regulars that will do for me. With a big midweek game coming up its a perfect time to rest Izzy, Sammi & Kris to protect them from injury and blood the new lhads.





    I agree with you that they are beyond parody,but thankfully that hasn’t stopped them.



    I reckon this could run for a while yet.



    Well,when I say run,I really mean dodder into another Blin Ali or ten.



    Both puns intentional for a change.

  14. So Barry Fergusun is shocked dismayed and speechless……….




    Perhaps paying back the £6m ‘loan’ to rfc (liq) would help his conscience and help the shocked dismayed and speechless creditors that are never mentioned by MSM

    big marv own goal maybe ?.






    Possibly the last fella to walk through their doors with any of that famed dignity and integrity.

    Not only did we tell them they would run out of money we provided spreadsheets that demonstrated why and when and the impact of taking corrective action.



    But because it came from Timland we were not believed.



    Pearls before swine comes to mind.








    What are you on,ffs?!



    I refer you to my earlier reply to GERRY S …..

    Ridiculed at first,but some looked into it and understood.



    Now? To be honest,I reckon they all know they are screwed,just hate to face the facts.



    The fallout will be nuclear.
