Mr Green and his invidious meetings


Information leaked from Charles Green that he is due to meet Celtic chief executive, Peter Lawwell today.  I’ve no idea if it’s true (sooo many wrong steers from over there) but, if accurate, it puts our man in an invidious position.  Mr Green appears generous when reviewing the success of meetings.

At his infamous ‘Blood on their hands’ press conference, would-be-pope-of-Ibrox, Brian Kennedy, told us “HMRC will not agree to a CVA until the very last minute”.  Why would they?  We believe Green has offered £8.5m but he has spoken about having raised £20m.  If HMRC are negotiating at all (and I have my doubts) they will want as much of that £20m as possible, and I’m sure they will, as Mr Kennedy suggested, wait until the very last minute before agreeing to anything (they won’t, b.t.w.).

None of this matters to Mr Green, he can say HMRC told him they’ll scrub the debt if he paints the Blue Room pink and no one can contradict him.  He is likely to be looking for some comfort from Mr Lawwell but I am sure he will be told that Celtic are unable to support any measure to parachute a Newco into the SPL (after his CVA fails, which it will).  Mr Green, who is also trying to maintain the support of the backers needed to commit cash by Friday, will almost certainly emerge from the meeting uttering words like “constructive”, “helpful” or maybe even “very positive”.

He is wasting his time.  Words like “sobering”, “alarming” and “downright obstinate” might be closer to the truth.

  1. A few thing puzzling me here….



    A)Ticketus …. After shelling out £20m on future season book sales….why are they eager to accept a CVA? ….so soon afterwards..


    Say it’s 10p in the pound…


    Their £20m investment is now worth minus £18m



    B)are the administrators leaving it to v last min to agree CVA ,is this to put pressure on the creditors excluding HMRC In order to put the pressure on them to not being the final nail in the coffin on Rankers … ? P

    Hopefully Barcabhoy will make all this irrelevant tomorrow. Glad I have lots to do as I’d waste the day sitting in front of a screen only to learn a little more than I already did.

    B109 – missed that one, bit presumptuous that a decision was the aim of the meeting though :)

    three people are involved in a duel (or truel), one is a very good shot, one is not bad, you are rubbish. you have one shot each, because you are the worst shot you go first. Who should you shoot?
