Paul McBride, QC


Fortunately very few of us will have to go through what Paul McBride endured as a consequence of being a Celtic fan. Bullets and bombs in the post, with the inevitable stresses, are not part of a civilised society, but he coped without shirking. Instead of playing to the gallery, he carried an uncompromising message to some in the Celtic support, making a few more enemies but many more admirers.

His loss will be felt most by his loved ones, who are in our thoughts at this time, but without his insight, the years ahead will be poorer for us all.

  1. Doing some thinking about rangers(in administration) and am I right in saying that Duff and Phelps have been there 3 weeks and done NOTHING so far to cut costs, they cannot even make the decision as to which staff are getting sacked.


    It was Craig Whyte who rushed these guys in to thwart HMRC appointing an administrator. All we have heard from them is chasing this up, can’t find that out, still analyzing data. The only people to leave have been Smith and Russell and when you look at the headlines they were made ‘redundant’ which implies a pay off.


    Is it just me or are they dragging their heels long enough to get rangers liquidated which plays right into CRAIGWHYTECSC hands.

    Correctamundo but your forgot Murray … it pays & plays into his hands also.



    Because MIH got the 24million from Ticketus. Murray actually got 7 million and 1 pound for Rangers

    ” Is HMRC in on it ? ”



    If ” in on it ” means complicit , then I think not.



    Think Hector has been constrained by Legal processes and time. They might end up having to chase Sir David Murray et al. .



    Liquidation looms . No to Newco !

    I think Mr McBride will be smiling looking down with all the Tims in Heaven that half passed, including my father, at the demise of the hun scum of a football club and them who supports them.


    RIP Mr McBride.

  9. RIP. He made a remarkable reputation in a short lifetime.


    Thanks for fighting our corner.

  10. Sad news indeed. Intelligent, articulate, formidable are words that are used when describing Paul McBride QC. Scotland’s law courts will be poorer without him.



    RIP Paul McBride.
