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.

    Sorry to hear of your loss. You will be your daughters’ strength. They will be yours



  2. EDB,



    So very sorry to hear of your sad loss – deepest condolences to you and your family.



    I hope that all of your friends on CQN can give you some strength and support.







  3. Big Nan,



    As we know, there are levels in the Craft and those at the bottom are mere makeweights. r



    In your post, you mention that the sherrif didn’t spare them.



    However, you also mention that he was considered a traitor by his colleagues.



    Add in the fact that they escaped any meaningful sanctions, even considering the damning indictment.



    Hence my closing remark.

  4. Guys,



    The magnificent support and encouragement that myself and my daughters have received today is beyond words. Again I thank you from the bottom of my heart.



    Just have some time now to read the blog because it’s Sunday and the other business begins tomorrow.






    Dick Byrne, if I’m the first CQNer you’d met I’m surprised you ventured further and you and your family are never far from my thoughts.



    Midfield Maestro, Just spoke to Kerri and of course she remembers you on that flight the day after her graduation. It was CQN that brought you together.

    ElDiegoBhoy, my sincere condolences on Moira’s sad passing and my deepest sympathy to Kerry, Megan and you.


    CQN can be an anonymous place at times but it was my privilege to work with Moira several times over the last 12 years and indeed it was she who told me about the site and the many reasons why I should sign up.


    I know how important her family were to her and I know how proud she was of you all and I hope that you all find comfort and strength from the many wonderful memories you will have.


    May she rest in peace.

    Just reading through the Evidence from Sir Minty and haven’t yet gotten to the end of his opening written statement.



    However…. right away I pick up on this sentence:



    “It was a Trust which was intended to


    be used to provide benefits to present, past and FUTURE


    employees of the company and their relatives”




    Future employees?



    What the hell does that mean no matter what business you are in?

    ‘Future employees?’






    I think that would be standard practice when setting up such a scheme.



    Past employees, I’m not so sure.
