Rangers, streetwalkers of football, face their deadline


There’s something undignified at the shenanigans at Ibrox right now.  Despite being under no pressure to pay the disputed tax demand, Rangers are tarting around their top player in a desperate attempt to raise money.

After the Plus Stock Exchange suspended dealing in their shares the club stated it would produce overdue accounts for season 2010-11 around the end of this month, which coincides with the end of the transfer window.  Any auditor needs to be in a position to state that the company has enough cash to be considered a going concern before he would be in a position to sign-off the accounts.  Rangers are now in a desperate bid for cash as their self-imposed (late) date to provide shareholders with statutory information has arrived.

Claims were made that a front-loaded war-chest was made available to Ex-Rangers manager, Ally McCoist (still too early?  Hmmmm) at the start of the season and it was subsequently suggested that a £9m bid was rejected for Nikica Jelavic, but now the same player is available for a fraction of that sum – available for cash, that is.

McCoist kept their season alive but as reality dawn and Neil Lennon’s Celtic turned up the heat, his challenge abated.

The trusty old media, for so long a crutch throughout Rangers rather unique history, are set to desert the White Star Line’s most famous vessel.  The day draws near.

    Long time since I read that.


    How appropriate for the interesting times we live in… For fitba and beyond.



    I would love to hear Keevins or Speirs solemnly recite that on the phone in.

  2. I mage research on Russian websites and there is no signs that Locomotive or any other clubs are interested in Anthony Stokes. There are only echos of the news from Sky.


    ‘Russians are going” does not convince me there is truth in the news. How Sky or any other media would know that Russians are going to make a bid?

  3. apparently three trialists played in a three – two win against fleetwood. the reports suggest Uchebo,salihi and an Irish kid called Caolan Lavery???



    anything else happenin??




  4. The Spirit of Arthur Lee on

    I hear that Tommy Sheridan announced today that if he has to face another trial that he wants it to be at Murray Park He will be guaranteed to be released the same day

  5. Neil Lennon is ainm dom (nohunlover) on

    Why does CQN. Keep going down? Excuse my ignorance, but what is tge announcement going to be at Murray Park on Wed?

  6. NorthAntrimBhoy on

    Great reading around the sites tonight, a lot of excitement on twitter.



    While over on followfollow we have the delusional classics such as:



    “Something tells me the end of the case case is coming and it could be better than we thought. Just a hunch like…”

  7. West Wales Celt on

    KDS awash with the DR story and the interpretation appears to be its fatal news.


    Just saying like…

  8. Tried to post before the blog went down.



    Whatever the DR story – it will be worded to ensure that their circulation figures are not adversely affected.



    Cannot see them publishing something that would wipe-out their hardcore readership in one fell swoop. If there’s a story that needs telling – they will spin it to extract maximum loyal readership.



    Could this be story be a trojan horse? – A forerunner to the introduction of the newco cartel – a pitiful presentation of the need to retain them in the SPL for the overall good of the game? A rallying call to the troops and those in positions of influence?



    Will it be a platform for; those in the game, for politicians and councillors, business and banking to have their say and influence future thinking.



    League reconstruction – re-entry to the SPL?



    I smell a conspiracy is about to unfold!

  9. Guys, please join me in thanking Andrew from Belfast, who did excellent work getting us back tonight and even logged in as “admin” to test, like some prophetic entity.

  10. Hearing 7 page spread in record, dynamite, white is so over.



    Watch out for 3 years season book money morgaged, payment due and no cash to pay.








  11. Gotta love Follow Follow.




    This is an all out assault by timmy and their friends in the mhedia. It wouldnt suprise me one bit if this is being orchestrated by Liewell and his favourite general mcgobilldygook.



    Remain dignified bears do not fall for their fenian tricks. We will prevail and even if we do lose the tax case we will pay back every penny. It would simply be an administration error happens all the time in business.




  12. man in a suitcase



    Lenny meantioned we played against an experianced Fleetwood team tonight..

  13. James Forrest is Lennon on

    Wee repost from my FB page, minus bad language haha.



    “It must be hard being Craig Whyte tonight. Your wife has left you, your manager is about to. The papers are about to run a series of stories which carpet bomb your reputation. You are at the helm of a crumbling institution with asbestos in the walls, cracks in the crest and flooding in the stands as fans pee themselves with fear at the thought of what’s coming.



    You have more court time scheduled than Novak Djokovic and money dribbling out of your personal bank account faster than Stephen Hester. You have St. Johnstone flaunting Francisco Sandaza, Celtic flaunting the signing of Brozek and Pat Fenlon leaving taunting answer machine messages about somebody called The Pitbull. You have footballers drawing salaries for doing sod all, scouts drawing salaries for running their fingers down the Football Manager 2012 Free Transfer Database and Gordon Smith drawing a salary for pointing journalists in the direction of Ally McCoist and saying “ask him”, like the world’s crappiest tour guide.



    You have HMRC on your case, PLUS on your back and the Samaritans on your speed dial. You have gangsters in one ear, property developers in the other and Jim Traynor trying to climb out of your backside. You are beset by problems on all sides, from irate Rangers fans to creditors wanting their money. And you have irate Rangers fans who are creditors wanting their money too.



    It must be hard being Craig Whyte tonight, with the lawyers on one line sucking money and the Premiership’s top managers wife’s on the other, one by one telling you “he’s in a bath, he’ll call you later …” as if they’ve all got together and decided to stop taking your calls. It must be tough seeing the man you prized at eight million, tried to sell for nine million and now can’t get rid of for six million still wearing a jersey when he should be punted whilst you sit in Jersey, relaxing with a nice glass of Murray Vineyards White. It must be hard seeing your £1 investment value dropping faster than an elevator with the cord cut …



    Craig Whyte, tonight you have my sympathy. Tonight, I feel your pain. You might be a crooked SOB, a man with less scruples than a Lib Dem cabinet minister, a man with grubbier friends than Ron Davies out on the pull and a face which makes me think your father is also your uncle and your mother also your sister and your granny also your auntie (if that makes sense, and I’m sure it doesn’t) but you’re a human being, and tonight you are suffering ….



    Or maybe your not. Maybe this is all part of your plan. Maybe you’re secretly delighted and about to open the champagne … but if so you better get yourself down to Tesco quick, cause it’s running out fast … Just know that a lot of it is going to be consumed in your honour.



    Craig Whyte, thank you. You are the best thing to hit Ibrox since Henrik Larsson got off the team bus for the 3-0 game.



    We (and Rangers) will be in your debt forever.”
