Rangers: Crisis Over, Or Just Beginning?

Rangers: Crisis Over, Or Just Beginning?

By on Apr 1, 2014 in Finance, Latest, Scottish Football | 1 comment

It is little wonder that Scotland’s Mainstream Media (SMSM) get a hard time when, aside from any perceived Celtic/Rangers/Old Firm bias, they make such elementary errors. The Rangers International Football Club (RIFC) interim results revealed operating losses of £3.6m between July 1st and December 31st 2013, which the Daily Record and the Herald newspapers called...

Rangers FC & The Self-Importance Of Being Sandy

“Person”(s) Of The Year 2013… “Charlotte Fakeovers”

By on Jan 2, 2014 in Latest, Politics, Scottish Football | 0 comments

As 2013 was such a rubbish year for football governance and finance, who better to be football’s “man” of it than someone called Charlotte, who told a tale of financial skullduggery and subterfuge and whose real identity, or possibly identities, remain concealed? Mark Murphy thinks “no-one.” The phrase “internet phenomenon” is, granted, clichéd journalese. And I...
