BBC report that Newco Rangers chief executive and major shareholder, Charles Green, has indicated to his board that he will resign. Two weeks ago the last owner of Oldco Rangers revealed that he was also a director of Sevco 5088 Ltd, the company who had an irrevocable agreement to buy the assets of Rangers from administrators Duff and Phelps.
The entitlement of Sevco 5088 was subsequently assumed by Sevco Scotland Ltd (now Rangers Football Club Ltd, a subsidiary of Rangers International FC PLC). Sevco 5088, which Green remains a director of, is now owned by Worthington Group PLC and has started legal proceedings against Rangers Football Club Ltd, claiming ownership of their assets, including Ibrox, Murray Park and all intellectual property.
Green initially rebuffed Whyte’s claims, insisting they were invalid, but his decision to surrender and.… walk away, is sure to add to speculation to what is coming next. Boom!
Reporters are desperately trying to find out when Zadok the Priest was heard at Ibrox Stadium, releasing Green from one of his hilarious commitments.
NEW SERVERS ARE LIVE AND READY TO ROLL
The current CQN server was commissioned in June 2011. When we approached the annual renewal time last year, like a lot of the media companies mentioned above, I thought, with no Rangers, interest will fade, there’s no point increasing infrastructure.
The traffic peak we endured in May 2012, when the server played its part in some major issues, hasn’t been matched since, but server resources continue to be stressed. Last week I bought three new servers (we now have three physical and one virtual) and shortly after full time at Tannadice tonight, our man Andrew in Belfast will bring the system down and start the migration process. We will be offline for a few hours.
After we’re back your existing user accounts will remain active. The domain name (celticquicknews.co.uk) will point to a new server (IP) address but it can take hours (or days) for each internet service provider to update their records. As a result, celticquicknews.co.uk might not find the new server immediately.
Once we are live I will let you know the server IP address (a series of numbers you can type into your address bar), which will enable you to get onto CQN before your ISP has updated their records. Check Twitter (twitter.com/cqn) or Facebook (CQN-Magazine) for the address.
Let’s hope it goes smoothly…….
