The Scottish Football League programme is now finished with only play-offs still to complete but there is still a great deal of business to complete. The remarkable persistence of First Division clubs to find a financial model which will allow them to retain full time football shows no sign of ending, despite the difficulties presented from a couple of quarters.
Meanwhile the Third Division champions have even more pressing matters. They have now finished their league programme and can now officially be told what they have perhaps unofficially suspected for some weeks. Charles Green has agreed to remain a director until the end of this month. Before he goes the ownership of Ibrox, as well as the appropriateness of the club’s IPO in December, will need to be established. They have a three week window but nothing happens until the lawyers report, which I expect this week.
It was two years ago today Sir David Murray took a £1 payment and relieved himself of outstanding commitments to Lloyds Banking Group, the legacy of his time at Rangers. The support Craig Whyte received at critical times in the months which followed was breath-taking. Every hack, side-kick, and numpty ‘fan’ who told the rest to set aside all common sense deserve a medal for what they did to that club.
They don’t even understand the mock-worship Celtic fans offer Whyte is a parody on where they were 2011-12.
