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.

  1. “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”



    If they claim that the club wasn’t liquidated then when would you need to buy the SPL championships? Surely they would already be with the club anyway,no?



    He continues to muddy the waters I see. Nice of them to try and bring Celtic into as well I see. He is nothing but a dangerous mouthpiece, hope he is swiftly put in his place!

  2. Green is simply rabble rousing again. As for playing to the lowest common hun denominator Green is pure masterclass.


    The huns will love this and empty their bank accounts come the share issue.


    The fleecing gathers pace and knows no bounds.


    Stupid stupid huns

  3. Ii’m not suggesting mccann was ever a minor figure in the celtic story but given the financial climate the club operates in today, his contribution to the post 67 era and the walfrid vision is utterly immense (fergus not neil)



    Walfrid–>Stein–>McCann :equal importance



    any takers on that debate ?

  4. ” 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.”



    A massive contradiction in terms Shirley. If (big if) the titles are owned by the new company then it a matter that has to do with them.



    It’s akin to saying that stolen car that I bought- and very cheaply at way below market price- from the thief that nicked it cannot be taken from me and you can’t take any action against the thief as he sold it to me. And my big fat sleekit dad Ali agrees so yah boo sucks to yous.



    Stupid stupid huns.

  5. The Battered Bunnet on

    To be fair to Charles Green, he does raise a reasonable point: Why now?



    Directors of the SPL and indeed the SFA have had intimate knowledge about Rangers’ contractual issues and consequent problems with player registration rules for… erm… gosh, since Rangers started using unorthodox methods to pay their players.



    How do we know this? Well, because the Directors of the SL and SFA I refer to, were simultaneously Driectors of RFC plc implementing the methods.



    Why now? Well, in their stupidity, the SPL figured with Rangers being liquidated, they would have an unobstructed inquiry. They didn’t count on one pesky Yorkshireman though. Oh no.



    Problem Charlie has is the SPL’s scope for inquiry absolutely includes the power to compel witnesses to attend, failing which, have them banned from participation in the game.

    Cheers buddy, I see it is possible to buy tickets from Barcelona at the moment but I’ve heard there may be problems on collection when producing a British or Irish passport! Will do some further investigation:)




  7. The SFA deserve this shambles as they didn’t have the balls to deal with this months ago.UEFA should deem them unfit for office .

    These things happen, in the realm of client relations, thusly.




    Lawyer: This is a complex case, which will incur significant expense and I can’t guarantee the outcome will be to your liking. That’ll be (insert figure of choice here) please. And I’ll need ( another, larger figure here) to begin work in earnest and ( even larger figure here) prior to the commencement of the Hearing. No Provvy vouchers .



    Client: Do you do no win no fee?



    Lawyer: You’ll find the door conveniently located to your left, next….



    Client: Does that mean you won’t be coming then?



    Lawyer: Security…….



    Client: What if I just don’t turn up and make out it’s a principled stand against an oppresser who has no jurisdiction over me any way?



    Lawyer: It’s an option, of course.I can recommend the very good ‘ Be Your Own Lawyer ‘ by Robbie the Visigoth and The Partially Clothed Rambulator, published by HM Prison Services User Guides (pdf) and their rumbunctious follow up ‘How to Survive the First Five Years of Chokey’. Very good value. Now, please, I really must get on with this opinion on snails in ginger bottles . No, we don’t take them either. Goodbye.



    These scenarios never end well……………for the client!

  9. Wee Chuck Greens statement doesn’t get better with reading it again.


    He states as The Rangers are no longer(never were) members of the SPL they are no longer liable to the rules(laws) of the SPL.


    So if I go to another country, rob a few banks then come home, I can tell the authorities, nope you can’t do me, I’m not subject to your rules anymore, I over here now!


    Total and utter deviant.

  10. saltires en sevilla on




    Good man.



    My daughter was ill for Hibs match. Last minute txt to all advising spare kid ticket….



    One wee rankers boy now a fully fledged bhoy.



    He told me before the game CP was very different from Ibrox…I told him to think about 5 things that were different, and tell me after the game:



    1. The size of Celtic Park/space at seats


    2. The football was on the ground


    3. The Green Brigade atmosphere


    4. Hardly any swearing *


    5. The Celtic shop is awesome (? How bad is their shop!)



    *I think I might have used a sweary word when ghoops actually heided the ba :)



    Another soul saved :)

  11. We picked up tickets for last Champs Lge game in Barca end on day of game from ticket office. Just needed someone with a non-UK passport to buy them and plenty around willing to do so for a small bung.

  12. McDowellCelt


    Welcome aboard you picked a good day.


    Get the popcorn out this is going to be good :))).


    Chuck has been trying to get someone to put them out the game and give him someone to blame.


    having read D&Ps statement its obvious they were all in it together as we all knew.


    So its over to Regan, Donkey & Ogilvie we will soon find out how much they were in on the charade,by their response to being stabbed in the back by green.


    Thats what they get for making deals with the devil.


    ONLY AN INDEPENDENT INQUIRY will get to the bottom of this.

  13. Administrators Statement





    PAUL CLARK, of Duff and Phelps, joint administrators of RFC 2012 PLC (formerly The Rangers Football Club plc), issued the following statement today:



    “I can confirm that the business and certain assets of RFC 2012 PLC – including the honours won by the Club – were acquired by Mr Charles Green’s consortium as part of the sale and purchase agreement.


    “The SPL have been in contact with RFC 2012 PLC with regard to the SPL’s Commission which is examining Rangers’ historic use of EBTs. However, having taken legal advice, it is the Joint Administrators’ opinion that the SPL is not able to pursue RFC 2012 PLC in this matter.


    “The SPL have stated that the Commission is empowered to review the use of EBTs under the contract between the SPL and its member club. RFC 2012 PLC no longer has a contract with the SPL and therefore the SPL has no jurisdiction over it.


    “This has been communicated to the SPL and considering that further involvement in this matter is not in the interests of its creditors, RFC 2012 PLC will have no further involvement with the Commission.


    “Our primary role as Administrators was to rescue the business which has been achieved by Charles Green and his consortium and whilst any sanctions the Commission may levy will not affect RFC 2012 PLC this process would not appear to us to be helpful to the ongoing revival of Rangers.”

  14. See this is what happens when you refuse to deal with a bunch of cheating huns at the time they are cheating. Or when it is brought to your attention that they are cheating. Or at any other time in the past when the footballing authorities, including those hopelessly conflicted, have swept the issue under the carpet.



    Green should be arguing that they are a brand new club and didn’t employ or register any of the players that the inquiry is investigating. Hard to argue with that.



    I love the notion that you can buy past titles though. Can we buy the world championship that Renton won all those years ago? It would go nicely alongside the European Cup.

  15. Hun trailer trash tripe…..


    cheap and nasty cretins.


    My good mrs, who has no axe to grind, just said to me : oh,God, can they not just die quetly?

  16. The guys on KDS have been checking the rules of “The Crossbar Challenge:



    “I don’t know if you’ve looked at the T&Cs, Celticfcblog, but that comes up with another couple of gems”.



    It seems that this is being run by “Strathan Limited” and the only company of that name that I can find is dissolved.



    Then it states “The first entry drawn at random from all eligible entries who have answered the question correctly will win the prize.” THE prize. So out of all the phone and text fees, only one person will have (presumably) ONE chance to hit the crossbar for £1m.



    And in the unlikely event that this happens, Green and Co will have laid off this tiny risk for a small fee with a risk counterparty.



    It also says “Email – Please send in your answer either A, B or C followed by your name. There is no charge for email entries”. But this little fact isn’t mentioned anywhere else that I can see. I wonder if email entries will be included in the draw at the end of the season?



    But seriously, how can Strathan Limited (dissolved) be the final arbiters in this competition?





    8. All decisions of Strathan Limited will be final and binding. No correspondence will be entered into.



    So the plan is,hopefully thousands phone in at £1.50 a time but only one will be picked.


    This will be repeated at every home game,especially the last where one lucky winner could net £1m.

  17. Here’s the deal.




    Agreement on transfer of membership


    Friday, 27 July 2012




    Joint statement on behalf of The Scottish FA, The Scottish Premier League, The Scottish Football League and Sevco Scotland Ltd.



    We are pleased to confirm that agreement has been reached on all outstanding points relating to the transfer of the Scottish FA membership between Rangers FC (In Administration), and Sevco Scotland Ltd, who will be the new owners of The Rangers Football Club.



    A conditional membership will be issued to Sevco Scotland Ltd today, allowing Sunday’s Ramsdens Cup tie against Brechin City to go ahead.



    Following the completion of all legal documentation, the Scottish Premier League will conduct the formal transfer of the league share between RFC (IA) and Dundee FC on no later than Friday 3rd August 2012. At this point, the transfer of Scottish FA membership will be complete.



    Key points:



    – The Scottish FA has received all necessary information and documentation from Sevco Scotland Ltd, including details of the company structure, shareholders, financial projections and business plan.



    – Sevco Scotland Ltd has agreed to accept all conditions relating to RFC (IA)’s charges of bringing the game into disrepute, namely the 12-month transfer embargo, beginning at 0.01a.m on 1st September 2012, and payment of all outstanding fines and costs.



    – Sevco Scotland Ltd has agreed to settle all outstanding football debts to other members of the Scottish FA plus clubs under the jurisdiction of other Football Associations.



    – The Scottish Premier League and Scottish Football League have reached agreement on the purchase of a package of broadcasting rights which will allow the former to include The Rangers FC matches in contracts with broadcast partners.



    – The Scottish Premier League has reserved its position in relation to the on-going investigation into EBTs.



    Stewart Regan, Chief Executive of the Scottish FA: “We are pleased for everyone involved in this process, and indeed the whole of Scottish football, that a conclusion has been reached.



    “There were a number of complex and challenging issues involved but, primarily, the Scottish FA had to be satisfied that the new owners of Rangers would operate in the best interests of the club, its fans and Scottish football in general.



    “We have reached agreement on all terms and conditions attached to the transfer of membership and are able to grant conditional membership, ahead of the formal transfer of the SPL share a week today. This will allow the season to kick-off as planned this weekend and I am sure there will be many who will join me in welcoming the start of the new football season in Scotland.



    “This has been a difficult period for Scottish football, but with this agreement now in place, and with the new season upon us, it is essential that we all focus our energies on football once again. In the months ahead, the Scottish FA will resume discussions on the subject of league reconstruction. We remain committed to this process in order to re-energise the national game and will work closely with the SPL, SFL and all other relevant affiliated bodies to provide a dynamic product appealing to our supporters.”


    Charles Green, Chief Executive of The Rangers Football Club, said “The agreement signed today allows Rangers to be granted membership by the SFA and finally enables the Club to move forward.



    “The Board, the Manager and senior executives have been working tirelessly over the last few weeks to secure the future of the Club and today is the start of that process.



    “The Board has had to take some very difficult decisions to gain SFA membership, including accepting the delayed transfer ban and paying outstanding financial penalties.  But we are now able to get back to playing football and plan for the new season, starting this Sunday with our match against Brechin.  



    “There remains, however, an outstanding issue with the SPL regarding EBTs.  As we have proved in the last couple of months we will stand up to any challenges that face Rangers and will continue to fight for the Club’s best interests.”



    Neil Doncaster, Chief Executive of the SPL: “We are pleased to have reached an agreement with the parties concerned. Discussions will now continue with our broadcast partners and we expect to be in a position to make a further announcement next week on broadcasting rights and the on-going EBT investigation.”



    Jim Ballantyne, President of the SFL: “Current events have thrown up some serious challenges to Scottish football and the SFL has played its part in trying to navigate through to a solution in difficult circumstances.



    “I am now looking forward to doing what we are actually here to do. To play football.”

    There are so many holes in Chuck Greens statement that you’d be forgiven for believing Ibrox is the new De Wallen!





    I’d pay money to get to cross-examine him on that.

  23. My one big nightmare is the ludge(regan, donkey, ogilvie, ballantyne & co) just say sorry he is right there is nothing we can do, move along now nothing to see here.

    If any titles are stripped, they’ll be stripped from the RFC 1872. You, RFC 2012, have won nothing more than a couple of matches.

  25. SFFS



    As I recall, the statement from the SFA said, amongst other things, that the league reserved its right to proceed with the hearing on the issue. While Sevco agreed to this, it didn’t (at least, as far as I recall, say that Sevco would participate, nor did it require them to.



    The proceeding should simply go forward on an undefended basis.

  26. Is Green’s wee outburst tonight and Sevco’s refusal to co-operate with the EBT Enquiry an admission that they are a NEW club and should not be subject to any punishments?



    I wonder how the laptop loyal will dress this one up.

  27. Oh dear – when are the police going to have a chat with Chuck Green?



    And when are the MSM going to start pointing out the insanity of the Sevco claims?



    Now it’s ‘Enough is Enough’? They’ve had a 10 point deduction and a small fine for cheating over decades, defrauding the tax-man last year, allegedly defrauding the taxman for the previous decade and leaving numerous suppliers out-of-pocket.



    Now Jabba is backing the ‘Enough is Enough’ campaign.



    Absolutely shameful.




  28. 67Heaven ... I am Neil Lennon..!!.. Ibrox belongs to the creditors on

    greengo knows exactly what he is doing …….he is ‘convincing’ the hoarders that he is their champion (even though his facts are fiction) …….. Once he has them fully convinced, they will pump some more of their cash into the now failing sevco, and he will ‘disappear’ like Whyte, with a tidy little profit in his pocket……..can’t wait to ‘see’ UEFA’s reaction …….. silly bhuns



    Hello, the tribunal is not about EBT’s …… it’s about not declaring 2nd contracts …… The EBT appeal ‘juggernaut’ is just about to blow you right out of the sewer, though…….
