Weeoscar4life Glasgow quiz night


The good people running the weeoscar4life campaign have been in touch and asked me to pass on information regarding the appeal and forthcoming quiz night in Glasgow later this month:

“As many of you will be aware the weeoscar4life campaign team have recently been involved in raising the profile of a wee 3 year old boy from Belfast called Oscar. Many of you have kindly supported this initiative by purchasing CQN badges and wee Oscar wristbands and taking part in the “Small Change for US, Big Change for Oscar campaign”, with the money raised all going towards getting Oscar the treatment that he so desperately needs.

The next event that we have organised to help raise the £250,000 required for Oscar’s treatment is a quiz night. This will take place on the 29th September in The Phoenix (Previously Eastenders) on the Gallowgate with a 7pm start.

The quiz will be made up of a variety of questions, 50% Celtic related and 50% general knowledge. There will be raffle prizes and we also hope to have some live music after the quiz has finished.

Tickets are priced at £5 and you can buy as many as you wish for friends and family so long as they are over 18. Don’t worry if you aren’t able to make up a team of 4/5 as we will arrange you into teams before the event. We hope to be able to offer a ‘print at home’ ticket service so that you would be able to simply bring your tickets on the night.

Until then if you can contact us at weeoscar4life@gmail.com then Wecan begin to allocate spaces to those who have expressed an interest.

Thank you once again for your continued support.”

It is sure to be a fantastic night so please book early.

    welcome to the site.



    Good news,off to my cot.



    The other posters will give you the credit for it,haha!

  5. an tearmann:






    From earlier :


    ” Life changed utterly for everyone at Parkhead in March 1965 when Jock stein arrived as manager. John was centre forward in the 1965 Scottish Cup final win against Dunfermline which started the great times for Celtic. In October 1965 he showed remarkable coolness when scoring twice from the spot in the 2-1 League Cup final win over Rangers which announced that Celtic were now a real force. At the final whistle the Rangers fans invaded the field and an altercation took place with several Celtic players resulting in laps of honour being banned at Hampden for many years. In May 1966 John got his first League medal but Celtic lost the Scottish Cup to Rangers in a replay through rank bad luck.”



    That’ll be the ‘hun wi’ a whistle’ kinda rank bad luck we know all too well.

    as a Celtic supporter the future never looked brighter. The other guys slipping down the slope, a settled side, the title in the bag, four great victories in the Champions league and into the group stages and then we are hit with this unbelievable injury crisis.



    It looks like some sort of hex on the club although it has to be something more than bad luck. a CQNer on here mentioned Barcelona, probably the greatest club team in the history of the game. Barca seldom change their eleven and Xavi, Iniesta, Pedro etc pay a helluva lot of football in a season including International duty and Champions Lge right up to the later stages of every competition. How do these great players do it. They seldom seem to be injured we always see them when you watch football on TV. What’s their secret? Neil Lennon and the whole lot of us would like to know.




    The Blaugrana are looking to strengthen the club’s historic link with the region of Catalunya by having a Senyera style shirt next year – the first time in over a century



    Barcelona’s away kit for the 2013-2014 season will feature the red and gold colours of the Catalan flag, according to regional newspaper Sport.



    Fans have waited 113 years to see the Bars of Aragon on the region’s most successful club and will finally get their wish next year.



    The jersey will feature the famous red and gold stripes in an attempt by the club’s directors to promote the team’s connection to the autonomous region and its people.



    According to Sport, Barca are “reinforcing the sporting and sentimental ties that the majority of the population of the region share,”



    The current home and away jerseys already have had the colours of the Catalan flag on the back of the shirt since Joan Laporta’s regime took charge in 2003, but this move goes a step further.

    I was at that game when the huns invaded the park to attack the Celtic players. They came off worst and Big Tam G distinguished himself.


    He had one of them by the scruff of the neck and was booting him up the arse until handing him over to a cop, who it must be said continued to administer summary justice while dragging him off the park,


    All this in front of the Celtic end which was still full at the time, most of the huns having slinked off earlier, and it was a credit to us that we allowed the authorities to deal with the scum rather than staging a counter invasion which would have had serious consequences for the manky mob.


    The consequence of all this was that full laps of honour were therafter banned by the SFA.


    The orcs contaminate everything they touch. It was ever thus.

  11. Nothing changes then –

    Rangers say they won’t cooperate with the SPL investigation into alleaged use of dual contracts, becuase they are no longer an SPL member.

    Have Celtic appointed a new club doctor yet?



    If so who is he/she?






    the club doctor who has been there for a number of months is IAN SHARP who just happens to be my own GP a very hands on type as, if you look at the next game in the dug out he is the guy with the glasses and track suit.

  13. “The Rangers Football Club Limited will not attend tomorrow’s hearing (Tuesday, September 11) of the SPL-appointed Commission investigating the circumstances surrounding the use of Employee Benefit Trusts by previous owners of the Club.


    “The Club cannot continue to participate in an SPL process that we believe is fundamentally misconceived.


    “Neither the SPL, nor its Commission, has any legal power or authority over the Club because it is not in the SPL.


    “For that reason it has no legal basis on which to appoint its Commission. The Club ceased to be subject to the SPL’s rules when it was ejected from its league.


    “Our lawyers have made that point repeatedly to the SPL in correspondence and yet our requests for an explanation from the SPL have been completely ignored. The SPL’s silence on these issues is deafening. The outcome of the SPL’s process will have no legal effect.


    “First and foremost, I would like to explain this decision to our supporters across the world whose loyalty and commitment to the Club in very difficult times has been unwavering and heart-warming for all those involved at the Club. Our decision regarding this commission is approved unanimously by the Board and the Manager Ally McCoist.


    “Since the decision was taken by HMRC on June 14 to reject administrators’ proposals for a Company Voluntary Arrangement, the fate of Rangers FC lay firmly and clearly in the ability of the consortium I led to form a new company and corporate entity that would ensure that Rangers had a future as a football club.


    “At all times we were fully transparent in our dealings with the football authorities, be they the SFA, SPL or the SFL.


    “There was no ambiguity whatsoever regarding the status of the company when it made an application to join the SPL.


    “As we all know, 10 SPL clubs decided against the admission of the new company to the league and The Rangers Football Club Limited subsequently applied to the SFL for membership and we are grateful for their acceptance.


    “In short, what was decided by the SPL membership is that Rangers was finished as a member of the SPL.


    “Despite this, the SPL now see the new owners of the company, and the new company itself, which owns all the assets of Rangers FC – including SPL championship titles – as fair game for punishment for matters that have nothing to do with us at all.


    “And let’s be very clear about what this Commission is. Although the SPL goes to great lengths to emphasise the independence of its Commission, the Commission is not independent of the SPL. It has been appointed by the SPL. It follows SPL rules and its process is managed by SPL staff.


    “I don’t question the impartiality of the individual panel members but whatever decision they reach is a decision of the SPL.


    “To make it crystal clear, the new owners purchased all the business and assets of Rangers, including titles and trophies.


    “Any attempt to undermine or diminish the value of those assets will be met with the stiffest resistance, including legal recourse.


    “Furthermore, we ask the question genuinely. Why did the football authorities do nothing to address an issue that was public knowledge for at least two years, and was reported in the Club’s accounts for several years, before the Club went into administration and was subsequently taken over by new owners?


    “HMRC contacted the SPL regarding EBT matters in October 2010, they met to discuss what documentation the Club had lodged with the SPL.


    “Did the SPL launch an investigation? Did they appoint a Commission? Did they ask to see EBT correspondence? Did they ask any questions at all? No. They did absolutely nothing.


    “What compounds the breathtaking hypocrisy of the SPL in this whole saga, is that the SFA, the SPL and us – as the new owners – took part in numerous discussions regarding the new company’s league status during which it was made clear that a deal was there to be done where ‘the EBT issue’ would be dealt with as part of a package of sanctions which would be implemented in return for membership of the SFA and a place in either the SPL or Division One.


    “We do not accept that people who are willing to come to an agreement on such matters then have a right to instigate a full blown inquisition when matters do not unfold as they thought they would.


    “In our view, it beggars belief that an authority which can be heavily involved in these discussions to the point that the Chief Executive Neil Doncaster repeatedly stated he was not interested in stripping titles from Rangers can lurch from that position to setting up its own Commission under the chairmanship of Lord Nimmo Smith.


    “I must make it clear that we are not questioning for a moment the integrity of Lord Nimmo Smith and his colleagues but we believe the SPL have been hypocritical in their approach to this matter.


    “Quite apart from their negotiations with our consortium, I know the SPL were well advanced in their discussions with another bidder and his representatives where EBT issues were raised and there was again an understanding that the EBT issue could be dealt with by agreement if new owners were to take over at Ibrox.


    “Why is the SPL rushing to judgement now when it has been sitting on the matter for two years? Their haste is particularly difficult to understand when the tax tribunal judgement is imminent.


    “The factual issues in both cases are identical. We have to ask why is the SPL so anxious to issue a judgement in this matter before the tax tribunal’s findings are made public.


    “The position is even harder to understand when one of the reasons the SFA did not pursue any form of disciplinary charge on EBT matters following Lord Nimmo Smith’s April report was because it was felt unwise for the SFA to pursue the matter when the tax tribunal judgement had not been made public.


    “Nothing has changed as the judgement still has not been made public. Why is the SPL rushing ahead when in April the SFA felt it unwise to do so?


    “Rangers was not the only club in Scotland to use EBTs yet nothing was done and little has been heard about it. Also, Rangers stands accused of achieving sporting advantage unfairly – yet there is little debate over the fact in all the years EBTs were in existence at Ibrox, the Club often failed to win either the league title, or the main cup competitions.


    “Furthermore, the period concerned saw a significant downsizing of the playing squad both in money spent on transfers and players wages.


    “The decision we have taken has not been taken lightly. There are powerful representatives from Clubs within the SPL – not all of them by any means – who appear hell bent on inflicting as much damage on Rangers as possible.


    “It is lamentable that the Board and executive of the organisation have not been able to deal with this appropriately. We do not hold every SPL club in the same regard. Several clubs were placed in an invidious position and we believe their interests were not best served by those in more powerful positions.


    “Furthermore, as a Club we are not satisfied that the issue of conflict of interest relating to advisers to the SPL has been satisfactorily dealt with.


    “Once again I would thank our supporters for their patience and tolerance. They have been asked to take it on the chin time and again and we stand united in saying: No more.


    “As far as I am concerned, Rangers Football Club has won a world record 54 league titles, and, whatever the decision of the SPL Commission, these titles cannot and will not be taken away from us and our Manager Ally McCoist is in total agreement.”



    Stupid huns.

  14. You could boil down the above crap to read ” we want to keep our SPL titles because we are Rangers. However, we don’t want to be punished for cheating to win them because we are not …..errrrmm……..that Rangers.”

  15. Green has lost it.



    Now we will see how the authorities deal with the ‘oldco, newco’ aspect of their selective history retention.



    Most of that statement is baffling with its’ nice blend of arrogance and ignorance.



    Stupid, stupid huns

  16. Why would they have been expected to attend the meeting in the first place?



    They are not the club who are being investigated.



    Finally, through no fault of the SPL/SFA, there is a clear separation between the two clubs.



    Let’s move on from here and dispense with the One and Only farce.

  17. How can the terminally thick rankers refuse to attend a meeting? They don’t exist any more as a club. So…. Ah, what’s the point. The hun arrogance is still in the stratosphere.


    However, they WILL be like the spectre at the feast.


    Every day they have to come out with some disgustingly pretentious twaddle, like wee nyaffs demanding sweeties….or else. Or alcopops or diamond white….whatever wee nyaffs demand these days…they make me boak.

  18. It doesn’t make sense if they want to regain membership of the SPL at any time in the near future.


    It’s baffling.


    Is Green actually some kind of genius? You’d have to be extremely clever to be that stupid.

  19. That line….”…our supporters across the world…” hahahahaha. What ‘world’ is that then? Middle Earth? Effin’ fantasy merchants.

  20. They really will not, ever, take any responsibility for what their club has done, are they Rangers or are they The Rangers, either way, failure to co-operate with this hearing must end up in their expulsion from the SFA. Either they are failing to hold to the terms of the agreement they made to have the history(SFA license transferred) or they are claiming to be a new club and should never had been awarded a license at all.


    Stupid Stupid Huns.

  21. “HMRC contacted the SPL regarding EBT matters in October 2010, they met to discuss what documentation the Club had lodged with the SPL.


    “Did the SPL launch an investigation? Did they appoint a Commission? Did they ask to see EBT correspondence? Did they ask any questions at all? No. They did absolutely nothing.”




    Fair point. Why did Robert Campbell Ogilvie et al do nothing.



    Oh I forgot he had EBTs as well.



    Ogilvie must go.

  22. traditionalist88 on

    Charlie Green bought the assets from oldco, including the SPL titles eh! Why don’t we buy a European Cup from Nottingham Forest and buy Villa’s as well, both clubs could do with the money.




  23. Breathtaking stuff from Chuck.



    He knows the powers will do nothing, he is goading them while pandering to the hoards, and they are lapping it up.



    I like this bit….



    “Furthermore, we ask the question genuinely. Why did the football authorities do nothing to address an issue that was public knowledge for at least two years, and was reported in the Club’s accounts for several years, before the Club went into administration and was subsequently taken over by new owners?



    That says to me that they were cheating and the sfa did sfa about it…..
