You insane, insulting and illogical low intellect rabble


I admit to some admiration for the Daily Record which today came out with an outstanding article on the integrity and honest which inspires their values.  A truly inspirational piece, although somewhat undermined by an angry, if entertaining, rant against social networking sites and football forums, which are apparently characterised by “insane, insulting and illogical.. messages”, with a “lack of intellect”.

It’s good to see they don’t take themselves too seriously.

We also got the most rewarding argument to justify the accusation that Celtic “reneged” on an agreement to pay Rangers ticket money in advance of this month’s game at Ibrox.  The Record state that Celtic agreed to pay in advance as long as Rangers were not in administration (Celtic may tell a different story), which Rangers now are.  However, as Rangers issued an invoice for the tickets before going into administration, the Record argue that Celtic have, in fact, reneged as their payment didn’t reach Rangers before the administration date, 40 days in advance of the game.

They decline to claim evidence that paying more than 40 days before the game was part of the agreement, but with a startling command of intellect and logic, overlook this fact when claiming “the agreement must still have been broken”.

Don’t even try to figure this one out, it is logic way above your intellect.  It remains to be seen if it has outfoxed Celtic.

The newspaper cites conversations between Rangers staff to back up their story.  No wonder that lot ended up in such a state.  Don’t think this is a concerted effort to undermine your football team, you might feel that way, but, again, it’s a problem with your intellect.

    “You insane, insulting and illogical low intellect rabble”


    I honestly thought I was going to read an article about the Administrators of RFC (IA).



    Maybe the next article will deal with that rabble…

    This is the guy who squabbled live on air with a fellow journalist about who was the biggest Rangers lackie.



    This is the guy who ran the storry about moving the date of the Scottish Cupp final, but didn’t consider Queen of the South.

    Taking him seriously vindictes his role as a marketing rabble rouser for his papers falling circulation.



    I shall smile and move on. Too thick to do otherwise.



    Hope to see you in court James (as it used to be, when you were a journalist at the Herald, rather than a record reporter).

  3. Anyone know anything about this? Few Rankers players are worth much so would this include, Davis and Mythgregor.



    From the BBC


    Another potential source of income for Rangers would be to sell players to countries that still have their transfer windows open and discussions are ongoing with several clubs.

    Can’t argue with that. Sure Dunfermline already this season have had to close a stand as costs to keep it open were more than they were bringing in.

    and for those that wont click



    AS Rangers’ head of football administration, Andrew Dickson is a key member of the executive team on the business side of the club.



    He first joined the Light Blues in 1991 as a qualified chartered accountant and became financial controller in 2001.



    It wasn’t long before he was promoted again though and Dickson has occupied his current position since 2003.



    His day-to-day role encompasses a wide range of responsibilities, including football finance at first-team and academy levels and player contracts and benefit trusts



    Dickson is also the main point of contact concerning football rules and regulations governing the administration of the game.



    A director of Rangers Youth Development, he acts both on behalf of the club and the SPL on a number of external committees too.



    Dickson is the SPL member club representative on the SFA General Purpose Committee and the association’s Professional Football Committee.



    He is also the club’s representative for the Glasgow FA and is a former member of the SFA’s Disciplinary Committee.



    In addition, Dickson is Rangers’ liaison with UEFA for organisational aspects of European fixtures such as Champions League matches.

  7. So Traynor is asking his readership to believe a colleague and fellow director of Whyte over the CEO of Celtic



    Remember Ali Russell was never fired by Whyte, he was in fact hired by him.



    Remember last weeks headline in Traynor’s newspaper.






    So to suit has tawdry agenda Traynor is now prepared to believe the man (Russell) who has been in tow with Whyte.



    Fooling nobody Jim…….not for a second

  8. Taylor Wessing has taken a lead role on the high-profile Rangers FC administration, advising administrators Duff & Phelps on its move to recover money held by law firm Collyer Bristow.



    Duff & Phelps confirmed last week (2 March) that it had made an emergency application to the High Court in London to secure money held in the client account of Collyer Bristow, which advised Rangers owner Craig Whyte on his purchase of the club in May 2011.



    A total of approximately £3.6m has now been transferred to Taylor Wessing’s bank account while the High Court decides whether or not it is Rangers’ money.



    Taylor Wessing confirmed it is acting for the administrators in relation to the London High Court actions, but said it was unable to disclose who is the lead partner acting on the matter. The High Court will hear further representations on the administrators’ claim to the money and a request for further information from Collyer Bristow later this week (8 March).



    Duff & Phelps said in a statement: “We can confirm that following the court hearing Collyer Bristow paid approximately £3.6m to our lawyers, Taylor Wessing, to be held securely by Taylor Wessing until the High Court decides whether or not it is the club’s money. Collyer Bristow will also disclose to Taylor Wessing details of the payments of funds out of their account on behalf of the club since May 2011.”



    “Since legal proceedings are ongoing we cannot provide further information but this is a positive step in the administrators’ investigations into the club’s financial affairs.”



    As previously reported, Rangers went into administration on 14 February, with Scots firm Biggart Baillie taking a role to act for Duff & Phelps on the insolvency. Duff & Phelps has since revealed that the club must save £1m per month if it is to be able to save the club.

    A nice wee barometer on the integrity and honesty of the Dreary Retard would be, how much have Celtic an players taken off them, how many time have they made apologies,due to their honest reporting, whilst jabba has bee in charge :o)


    Would actually be interesting to know the answer to those points, innit :o)

    The whole Rankers debacle is symptomatic of the times we live in.

    NEIL LENNON could not hide his disappointment at failing to extend Celtic’s winning run to 21 games.


    But, as the ramifications of the weekend sink in, he will settle for seeing his side emerge 21 points clear in what has for some time been a one-horse title race. The calculators have been in danger of spontaneous combustion as Hoops fans try to work out if the 1-1 draw with Aberdeen allied to Rangers’ defeat to Hearts means a title-winning party at Ibrox on March 25 is still a possibility. Ironically, even if Ally McCoist’s beleaguered side do open the door to this opportunity by dropping more points against Dundee United the weekend before, the champagne may be kept on ice by the third party in this conundrum, Motherwell, who would also require to slip up before Celtic could be announced as champions before the month is out. Before any of that, Celtic need to rest their weary limbs and prepare to go again after appearing to be running on something close to empty at Pittodrie. The absence of a clutch of players after their exertions with their respective countries in midweek put to the test the theory Lennon has assembled not one side good enough to win the title, but two, such is the perceived strength in depth. His choices were restricted, unfairly and unnecessarily he contested, and Lennon elected to start with a side which required only four men who had played for their countries in midweek. Having taken the lead through an excellently-worked goal from the man who, in the past two seasons has become the scourge of Aberdeen, Anthony Stokes, all indications were Celtic would close out the game. The fact they had not conceded in their previous six SPL games was the insurance policy on which another three points were secured. But, when Andre Blackman’s long-awaited debut was stained by his unwilling deflection sending a wayward Gavin Rae shot beyond the despairing reach of Fraser Forster just as half-time beckoned, the reminder was delivered that nothing in this game is certain, except, perhaps that eventually everyone has to pay their taxes or risk death by a million cuts a month. “There was a little bit of lack of quality in the final third, which was a bit disappointing considering the players we had on show,” said Lennon. “But I don’t think our keeper had many saves to make, and their goal came from a deflection. That happens in football, and it takes a bit of luck sometimes to break a run like the one we were on, and Aberdeen got it on Saturday.” The damage could have been worse had the Dons capitalised on Celtic’s inability to rouse themselves from the lethargy which afflicted so many of them the longer the game progressed on a heavy pitch. Craig Brown’s men appeared content just to unsettle Celtic, their pressing game knocking the league leaders out of what previously had been such a confident stride. In the end, a point suited neither side, but, equally, was fair on both. And, while draw specialist Aberdeen rue a missed oppor-tunity to make their ambition of a top six spot more of a reality, Celtic are licking their wounds after seeing their winning streak run out of puff. Lungs will be fully re-inflated by the time they arrive at Tannadice on Sunday for what is a much more significant game. Any slip-up in this one will see them crash out of the Scottish Cup, and remove from the horizon the spectre of a Treble. Lennon is aware of the inherent danger attached to any cup tie, but considers the mitigating circumstances surrounding Saturday’s game should cancel out any fear his team have suffered anything more than a hiccup. “We don’t play again until Sunday, so that’ll give the players a chance to recover,” he said in a calm tone which emphasised his confidence that no cracks had suddenly appeared in what is considered to be a water-tight case for collecting trophies very soon. Lennon continued: “A lot of players had only one day recovery from Wednesday night and travelling. “I felt that, if the Aberdeen game had been a day later, we would have been much more like ourselves. “But I’m immensely proud of the way the players have handled things over the last few months, and I don’t think they have been given the praise they deserve for this. “We’ve been on a fantastic run, and the players and supporters should be very proud of it.” The fans have not lost any of their appetite for a party, but is important any anxiety to give them the title and cups is not allowed to manifest itself in nerves, and that the good football which has carried Celtic to this point is allowed to be delivered naturally. The sight of James Forrest, Kris Commons and Gary Hooper struggling to control the ball or complete simple passes was anathema to a manager who has built his team on fluent football. But Sunday is considered as good a day as any to start their next winning run, even though time dictates it will not get the chance to stretch to another 20 matches. Lennon will settle for closing out the championship and closing in on the cups, and said: “We have a month of good games to look forward to, and I’m sure you’ll see us at our best.” For Celtic fans, that’s a promise. For everyone else, it is a warning.

  13. Awe_Naw_No_Annoni_Oan_Anaw_Noo on

    NEIL LENNON today came out firing with both barrels as snipers took pot shots at his team.


    The Celtic boss totally refuted the suggestion his line-up for Saturday’s 1-1 draw at Aberdeen, in which several stars were omitted and Mikael Lustig and Andre Blackman were handed debuts, showed he did not treat seriously the threat to his team’s 20-game winning run, writes Ronnie Cully. Lennon was even more scathing when informed that ESPN summariser, Craig Burley, had joined the misguided chorus claiming this season’s SPL title is somehow devalued because of the serious problems crippling Rangers. The Hoops boss insisted he was working with what he had available to him, and doing his best to protect tired players. He said: “I didn’t have any alternatives, did I? “I could have started Cha Du-Ri, but we felt Mikael needed to play some football, and he was ready to play. Apart from that, I don’t think we could have changed the team that much. The 1-1 draw at Pittodrie allied to Ally McCoist’s team losing 2-1 at home to Hearts means Celtic need just another seven points to secure their first title in four seasons, possibly even less if they avoid defeat at Ibrox in their next SPL game in a fortnight. But Lennon could not hide his disappointment at leaving points behind in Aberdeen. It irked him even more to hear some people reckoned his team selection – from which several regulars including Georgios Samaras, Adam Matthews and Victor Wanyama were omitted – indicated he thought the win was a formality. He went on: “Looking at the bench, Cha might have been the only change we’d have made. “Of the rest, we had Dylan McGeouch and Paddy McCourt, plus Glenn Loovens, who is just back after injury. “Victor had just got back on Friday morning after travelling from Togo, so it would have been unfair to start him. We have to protect the players for the future. “The worry would be that you play them after their games and the travelling, and they pull a hamstring or suffer a soft muscle injury through tiredness or dehydration, then they are out for weeks at a very important stage of the season. “But you will see a different Celtic at Tannadice this weekend.” Lennon believes that his players have not received the credit they deserve for the way they have made the title all but theirs. He reserved particular criticism for former Celt Burley, who used his platform working for ESPN to take a shot at Celtic’s achievement. Lennon said in his post-match interview: “I believe one of your commentators said again that our title is devalued. “Really, they should come into our dressing room and say that to the players, or say it to our supporters. “I find it very disrespectful you give these guys a platform to vent their spew all over the TV channels. “They are talking absolute nonsense, and we will carry on regardless.”

  16. From the CSA site.



    Notic to the media hack’s, “We shall remember”


    It would seem there are still some shenanigans going on over at Snake Mountain; I never really understood from the start how the man who caused the EE to go into administration; actually appointed the Administrators of his choice.


    I’m not an expert in how these things work; but it seems to be dragging on a bit; we were told last week that there would be redundancies; they are still talking about it now; the only two to have gone up until now have been Smith and Russell.


    There has been much made of Celtic’s refusal to pay up front for the tickets for the up-coming derby match; although to be fair not by the administrators; more by poodles of the previous owner of the EE like Jim Traynor; I will continue to press Celtic to ban this clown from Celtic Park; if anyone continually abused you in public you would not invite them into your house; so why invite this mug? Withdraw his press pass.


    We also in recent weeks have had to listen to some of the people who are responsible for the financial plight of our rivals; guys like Richard Gough and Andy Goram; Gough said the only time he spoke to Moonbeams was to discuss bonuses; and the answer was always favourable; maybe Goughie should hand some back in his beloved clubs hour of need.


    There are a lot of people hurting just now; the same people who wanted to dance on the grave of Celtic in 1994 are a bit peeved because we are rejoicing in their troubled times; at least when Celtic were in trouble it was through stupidity and mismanagement; it wasn’t through illegal trading; and spending other people’s money.


    Now they are talking about tainted titles; the irony of that must be lost on them; we will win the league by a country mile; and will deserve to be Champions; in some ways I hope they don’t get rid of any players; that would only add to their paranoia; am I really accusing them of being Paranoid?


    Like everyone else I was disappointed that our winning run came to an end at Aberdeen on Saturday; but it shows you how far we have come since that dark day down at Kilmarnock; we were leaving Kilmarnock delighted to have managed a draw; we left Aberdeen raging at only managing a draw; I’m sure we will return to winning ways at Dundee Utd on Sunday.


    If we continue to play to our capabilities we should end the season as treble winners; that will be a remarkable turnaround for a team that looked on its knees in the middle of October; great credit will be due to Neil Lennon and his staff; no manager in the world has had to endure what he has; Lenny has remained single minded; and it looks like he will be rewarded for it.


    And when the time comes to hand out the trophies; and the media hacks are hanging around waiting for interviews; I hope Lenny remembers; because “We shall remember”
