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).

    ” the helicopter is on its way”

  3. Just in from work – can St Valentines day get any better….???



    One look in the fridge and my wife has made Lime Jelly (green) Dream Topping (white) and Peaches on top (orange) and bottle of Tattinger to finish off……………….. What a girl…!!



    I might just break a rule in 5 mins and watch STV 103 rather than ITV 993




  4. A little behind I was away all weekend but did anyone see the ridiculous lack of admin coverage on STV last night? They actually spent more time talking about our results it was disgraceful.There was more time alotted to it on the national BBC than there was on the local STV news.Tonight should be interesting.



    Russian transfer stories about Celtic perhaps?



    Daniel Cousin has his first blue nose burger?




    Kit man been sacked yet?

    Any idea how much cash Dignity has left in the bank?



    £3.5M running costs per month , makes you think how long they can carry on ….. I suspect CW will have left it too late for the Administrator to save the existing company ……… entire first team squad up the road next week …. liquidation and chaos to follow follow.

  10. Just turned 103 on and the programme highlighted was




    wondered who will catch wee craig first

    They have to see out the season.


    It is the only way that a NewCo has a chance of getting back into the SPL.



    If they don’t fulfill their fixtures then they are dead meat.


    The hot auction room action of the liquidation will be all about selling the stadium brick by brick, seat by seat.



    The TFOD are practically worthless if they are not a team trying to play football –



    MP = Only CFC could offer any real money for it, renting out the parks by the hour is nickel and dime stuff.


    No chance of planning permission for houses, green belt plus flood plain issues.


    Consequently nice facility but there is no developed market for nice training facillities.



    Ibrox = Tesco would want a big discount to work around the fascade.


    Maybe the SECC could put in an offer to put a roof on the park and use it as an exhibition hall?


    In fact that might be the best use of what is left of the stadium.


    I’m sure GCC could get a discount due to the unpaid rates.



    Albion ground = Housing association at best.



    TFOD without football is bottom feeder heaven, bargains galore.


    Consequently the game must be played.



    Finally the last 3 days have confirmed CW for what he is.


    Total chancer, nickel and dimemerchant, a bottom feeder trying turn a couple of tricks.


    When the mentalists on FF / RM finally wake up I hope he is in Monaco.

  12. Logical Optimist on

    Greetings from NYC !! Logical who is walking around with the biggest smile on his happy hoopy face.





  13. Nuclear Bovril and a Half Munched Pie on

    Good grief. You wait 2 years for the day to finally dawn and where are you? In a freezing Amsterdam with no wi fi connection. Inconsiderate to their last gasp these bleedin orcs.



    Can I assume I have a delicious multipage fest of blog fun to enjoy?



    Oh, time for Snyde!

  14. The city name will be changed,according to a hun,


    “withoot the rangers,glasgows no glasgow”

  15. The harsh reality of admin is about to settle in for those in employment at the trophy thieves, and while I feel for the ones who need the income to support their families ( ie. the woman who disinfects the strips, the man who goes round with the feed bags at lunch time , the Gardner who maintains the swamp) I will take a small bit of satisfaction when durrantie hobbles down the marble stair case for the final time along with McDowell .


    And ally exits from the catering department.

  16. I feel like Isa did when she found Winston’s gairden in the sky… This is just too good, people have got to know…

  17. The Huns it’s a wee shame…. And not just Scotlands shame……



    I think der Hun deserve bitter ( see I phones and predictive text, ye just gotta love it)



    Pass the parcel ———–>



  18. Sorry guys I know I’m enjoying this too much but all these things are flying through my poor wee celebratory brain.
