So which journos were secretly being paid by Oldco?


How many people working as ‘journalists’ in Scottish football were secretly on the payroll of Oldco Rangers (or Rangers International, for that matter)?  Is this common practice in newspapers, did the Daily Record know about it? Wonder how they will play the news story…

Any suggestions as to who else might’ve been on the oldco/Sevco payroll?  Any ex-Celtic players?

Most of us have spent the last season trying to value Victor Wanyama.  If he goes, it’s important we achieve as high a price as possible, not for the money itself, but Victor’s value will be reflected in the value of the rest of the squad – and it’s important we move our player trading up the food chain.

SPL football doesn’t count towards a valuation but the Champions League does, and Victor’s five group games (less so the Juventus games) are the basis of whatever figures will be offered.

    Next year, if you did not know already is ten years of CQN. Absolute amazing!!



    As part of the celebration of CQN 10, we are running a weekly football predictor next season with 50% of funds going to a CQN nominated charity.



    The predictor will be based on both Scottish and English games each week. We will run both a league and cup format.



    The cost of entry for the entire season will be £10 each with 50% going to charity.



    We want to make this the biggest footie predictor ever.

    According to the voice of the plain speaking man in the street, Chuckles Green, he bought the Albion Car Park – not training ground- – from Lloyd’s bank, who had bought it from SDM….Chuckles asserted that he threatened lloyds with a boycott in order to screw the price down to £1.4M, to what end? Who has the deeds?

    I know its off track, but just heard on the news that a former Met police officer has revealed that he was employed to seek out information to smear the family of Stephen Lawrence. Is there no depth to which this country will not stoop!

    Someone had a Forrest Gump on the floor of the away team’s dressing room. How do you know? Because the Mail has published the text of an email from the now sacked manager, Gus Poyet.


    RFC(NIL)/Sevco5088/Sevco Scotland/TRIFC let rip like a whale with dysentery all over Scottish football, the MSM refuse to publish a single text, tweet or email associated with Charlotte, despite the fact that they can report the leaks….You decide

  20. Congratulations and well played to both BigVic67 and the Celtic Board.



    We are now in a bidding war and we will both get 25% more than we wanted.



    Well done we both win. Get luck big mhan you got mt blessing HH

    you would think that there professional ethic would make them want to report on some or all of those leaks, but no. They should hang there head in shame, if they had any shame.

    Except that those so-called journalists are in the pay of the very people who are most likely to be mentioned in the leaks. You can’t pay your mortgage with pride!


    Billy Davies said that EBTs were just one of the ways that players avoided tax.


    There’s more to come.!

  24. Jim (EDB) I posted at the start of this thread when I came in from Mass my sincere condolences, seems to have got lost in cyberspace.



    So again so so sorry to hear of your loss.
