Reputational Damage

Mike Ashley (MASH) abandoned his petition due to a technical legal error. His petition sought a judicial review of the SFA’s rationale for approving career criminal King as fit and proper as a director of the SFA member club, The Rangers Football Club Ltd. On the 14th April the SFA disclosed to MASH that they had

The Old Firm-The SFA & Rangers

I awoke this morning to a slew of Twitter messages, the gist of which is best described as “GIRFUY Timmy.”  I will choose to demur on this advice and confirm that my name is not Timmy. They had been whipped into a fervour by Radar Jackson, The Prince of Plagiarism. As we know Mr Jackson has never

Lacklustre at Livingston

Has the sheen wore off The Petrol Tanked Cup and The Scottish Championship trophy? Has the penny finally dropped that these are the least that should have been expected from a squad with a playing budget of £6m? Are the team who contained the CFC forward line of Leigh Griffiths, with only a Tunnock’s Tea

The £10.2m Cash Cows

“Rangers fans, rightly, should enjoy the present chaos on and off the pitch at Celtic; shadenfreude, after all, should be relished at all times.Next season, however, will be an entirely different affair.” I have used an excerpt from a comment as the preface to this article. The excuses for CFC’s defeat are falling on deaf ears.

Not Waving, Drowning!

Rangers celebrations were muted by an ‘impertinent’ Alloa who were not prepared to wear the de rigeur pointy hats. The following day there were more jeers at Celtic Park as the best they could do at home was also an abject low scoring draw. Are these teams the future of Scottish football

Dear JJ

Dear JJ, I find myself quite discombobulated this morning in regard to some rather unflattering tweets apropos Our Dear Leader, Kim Jong-King. Surely tweets of this nature, on the eve of a hearing as to his suitability as a Chairman of Rangers, are rather unhelpful?  I include the tweets for your consideration: keith jackson ?@tedermeatballs 10h10 hours ago

The Changing of The Guard?

I watched two games on Sunday afternoon. I was surprised that the first game lacked the edge and controversy of the Leicester v West Ham game. If truth be told the Glasgow derby was a rather insipid affair, as only one team was set up to win. CFC went out of their way to lose. The red top rags,

Taxi For Deila

Today’s  Semi-Final triumph was not expected by many, with the notable exception of this site. I have been telling anyone who would listen (check my archive) that Rangers would prevail today after extra-time. I predicted 3-2 for Rangers and even though it went to penalties, it was almost a perfect call on my part. I predicted
