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.

    Well said re talking openly about loved ones who have passed. This is very important. Keeping the memory alive does ease the grieving process even though it can be hard to talk without tears.

    I bet there’s a few pundits thinking ‘Jesus!!! I could have been paid as well!!?!!’

    Got it.



    Also check through some stuff that Auldheid has sent me to look at and consider.



    Get back to you with some thoughts when I have digested what the Auld yin is saying.

    The simple (fair or otherwise) explanation is that players in the EPL (or even Champioship) command a higher value than players here, regardless of ability. Look at how Fletcher went from £3m to £6m then £12m in a couple of years.



    A good sell-on clause for Victor is essential – even worth sacrificing £1-2m on the current sale. If he was to be sold for £20m and we got 20% that’s £4m.

  6. So sorry to hear your sad news. A lovely person. You are in our thoughts & prayers.

    It sounds good to me – a very good pal of mine at school was into bands like T-Connection and Funkadelic played Chic’s first album before it was a hit, was a bit too Disco for me but the musicianship blow me away.

    Sincere condolences on the loss of your wife.



    You Will Never Walk Alone.

  12. SoT,


    I think they’d laugh at me if I brought up ‘old firm’, this is not about any particular team its about governance, we must forget about other teams, it makes us look like we cant let go. Concentrate on the governance irregularities and leave the obsessed to twist it to make it all about them.

  13. EDB,



    Just back in and learned your sad news.



    May your wife rest in peace and may God give you, your daughters and all your loved ones the strength to support one another at this time.

  14. Eldiegobhoy



    There’s nothing I or anyone else can say that will provide you with the comfort you require.



    Take care of each other and God bless.

  15. El DiegoBhoy, Just logged on and genuinely saddened by your devestating news. I’ll say a prayer for you and your family that God will give you strength to get through this very hard period of your life. God Bless ye all.

  24. Any way that we could discover the “journalists” who were being paid by thon deid club, particularly the ex-Celts? While we’re at it, any way the other recipients of the EBTs not on their payroll might be revealed?
