Raith Rovers in the League Cup, what can go wrong? Rovers are nine points off the top of the Championship but have already ejected Livingston and Aberdeen from this season’s League Cup, performing far better at the Tony Macaroni than some of us did
If my memory serves correct, they were just as far off the pace in the second tier that fateful day we try not to recall too often. For Celtic, this is an opportunity to get back on track, for Raith Rovers, this is a chance to reach a Hampden semi-final, with all the money and prestige that brings. Whatever ills them in the league, they found the ability to frustrate and dispose of two Premiership clubs this season. I will be happy to see Celtic take a two goal lead.
Scotland’s favourite litigants’ representatives were back in court yesterday in their dispute with the SPFL. The League have entered a sponsorship deal with online car dealer, cinch. Newco refuse to comply with sponsorship terms, claiming a prior deal with Parks Motor Group (of Newco chairman, Douglas Park fame), prohibits them from doing so.
Newco provided a redacted document from May this year to substantiate their claim, however, Lord Keen, acting for the SPFL, informed the court the document revealed Newco and cinch were in talks as late as 7 June this year to rename Ibrox Stadium.
Sheer self-respect would prevent you, wouldn’t it?
