Police first creditor to react


Strathclyde Police were Rangers first creditor to ask for a payment guarantee from Rangers’ newly appointed administrator, saying, “Strathclyde Police is a public body and has a duty to make sure public resources are used appropriately. We are seeking an urgent meeting with the administrators to ensure that any payment for policing costs at future Rangers games is guaranteed.

“Until we have such a guarantee we would not be in a position to commit public resources to policing an event unless we had a reassurance that our costs would be met.”

Before the administrator is able to allow the scheduled game against Kilmarnock on Saturday to proceed he would need to guarantee payments for all services employed and goods used, casting considerable doubt on the game proceeding.  The administrator is liable for any expenses he incurs from now which cannot be paid by the club.

Funds will need to be found for turnstile and security staff, while footballers may be asked to play for free.

One final push (this week) for the Vanessa Riddle Appeal. We have a Celtic top signed by the first team squad available to auction on eBay. You can bid on the auction and help send Vanessa for the treatment she needs by clicking here. Thanks to Penfold for the donation and to Taggsybhoy for organising (yet again).

    To mark the occasion, you have to award a statue of Al Capone (or a golden rose) for the funniest post of the day. Some beauties so far.

  2. Surrender FC giving us all a laugh since 14th Feb 2012.

    Craig Whyte?



    Absolute legend.What is there not to like about that comedian?



    He’s like something from a Batman film.



    The best thing is he is going to bump them for about £10million before he heads off into the sunset.



    eeeaaayyyeee eeeaaayyee eeaaaayyyeeee Hahahahahaha!

  5. Still no update on the BBC… maybe hard to type when you can’t see your keyboard for tears…

    I think that there is a strong possibility that we will win at the weekend and the huns will not play .. making the gap 17 points.



    The hun will then have a 5pt. penalty bestowed upon them for not completing a fixture



    I dont know if any other penalties can be sanctioned when it is clear that the arabs, baby huns and pars have been shafted.



    so 17 pts + 5 = 23 points



    The SPL could be won by this time next week



    Hail Hail

  7. JS’s Celtic



    Nature abhorrs a vacuum.


    Same in business, the rump support will still be substantial.



    30K crowds.


    Someone will put in an offer.



    NewCo = Yes.


    The question is PrePack or Auction Room action.


    Add what price will need to be paid?



    £18mill looks like the reserve bid.

  8. \o/ Coming at you!! on

    PENFOLD 1540



    I put a lot of bids in today but just been usurped – can’t go any higher I’m afraid. I am here though if the bids don’t go through.



    A special appeal I am delighted to help, the power of our community to raise what it has already is astonishing.



    Sincere priase to all those involved.

    “It is an awful day, a tragedy” – former Rangers star Richard Gough tells BBC Radio 5 live after club enters administration – it is a great day and a Jelly and ice cream party, Richard!

    All Rangers cracked crests for the next 4 years have been forward sold Crestus

  11. RFC is gone its now about how much Dunn & Phelps can get from it before it folds por cierto.



    Its like when the Lion has fed itself, it leaves the carcass to the Vultures. por cierto.

  12. Seven Fishes Four Steaks on

    Paul, come out ye black and tans…… You trying to start a songs debate? :-)




  13. So Whyte and the Administrator are pals, it now looks like he DID have a plan.



    This is perfect for the rangers fans. All blame can now be channelled onto this pair. No need to change beliefs or morality code (you know what I mean).




    Don’t phone the phone-ins tonight.



    You will be taking up valuable air time that can be used by hurting bears for our amusement.



    I want to hear one greet live on national radio to top this momentous day off.



    Please pass this public service announcement on

  16. So i’ve just a placed a £10 bet on Kilmarnock at 10/1. Coppers say no and I get paid out? Is it that simple?

  17. Paul67 – It’s a shame Rob Shorthouse ran away from Twitter and deleted everything shortly after you mentioned him in one of your articles.



    He had some pretty interesting Twitter friends, if I remember correctly, including Grandmaster Suck and Jack Irvine.



    Poor Rob Shorthouse. What a wee squidgy fart of a man. (thumbsup)

    HMRC hints heavily that Craig Whyte and #Rangers have been withholding the tax deducted from wages of players and staff

  19. NorthAntrimBhoy on

    From FF.com








    To be honest all this is way above the average guy on the street’s head , but i think personally Craig Whyte knows what he is doing .



    Am i in a minority here ?








    i am not %100 at all….but im kind of thinking along similar lines…









    I agree with you. I don’t know whether I’m clutching at straws, but hey ho. Not going to make a difference all this gnashing and wailing, all we can do is wait and see how we come out the other side.





    Today, 15:55





    I think he knows what he is doing.








    It’s like that the whole way through the thread, is everyone off here lurking and on the wind up on FF.com???
