New competition

My last competition proved highly popular, although nobody got it right - Bush is on the left column in each case, monkey on the right. My comparative assessment of Celtic and Rangers fans' characteristics also garnered high commendations both for accuracy and impartiality. This emboldened, I fuse both posts into a new competiton in which you can vote on for the title of 'Scotland's Miss Football'. The two finalists are pictired below:

Miss Rangers has a lot going for her. She has a moustache, great big head of long hair and blue eyes. There is also a lot of her, big, overweight body. She eats well (!), note the pair of dinner plates on the sink-top, and the empty dish in front of her. Clearly on a healthy diet, she also smokes. She might even smell of B.O. but it's hard to deduce that from a picture.
On the other hand, Miss Celtic looks puny, underweight, underdeveloped and underfed. it also looks like she cant afford a pair of knickers.

SFA probe Rangers pay deal

THE Scottish Sun today reveals details of the controversial player payments made by Rangers — which have dragged the club to the brink of extinction.
Fans want talks over cash gifts


RANGERS fans' chiefs are to meet administrators for crunch talks about the club's future.

Supporters will demand to know what will happen to cash they raise — and they want answers before next week's home game against Hearts.

Andy Kerr, head of the Rangers Supporters Assembly, revealed he hoped to hear from the money men within a few days.

He said: "We need to know if we provide cash whether it is protected or not. We can't just throw money down a black hole.

"And we need to know whether we can decide how the money is being used — can it retain our players and is there any impact on what happens in the future?"

He added: "The best thing we can do is to keep filling the stadium.

"We need to know if we can say to 40 or 50,000 people next Saturday that if they pay an extra tenner, then Steve Davis will be there until the end of the season.

"That's the kind of clarity we are looking for."

Despite regularly calling Joel Perry 'the black man' at the Royal Oak pub in Gloucester, Janet Wolszczak has kept her job at another of the Greene King's Hungry Horse chain's sites.

Mrs Wolszczak would tell Mr Perry to stand underneath the light when she was talking to him so that she could see him and when he complained he was falsely accused with stealing drinks.

When the bullets and the "viable device" were sent through the post to Neil Lennon some idiot popped up on tv saying he looked like he deserved it.

He was attacked at Tynecastle. No one batted an eyelid.

Now if I were to say Evra looked like he deserved it for starting the confrontation with Suarez do you think I would get banned from various online forums?

After all calling him Negrito in such a situation could viably be translated as silly child because of the way it was said in that situation. That Evra started.

Yet not one person who defended the attacks on Neil Lennon did. Because the events did not merit it.

Eric Le merde tompe le fan Cantona karate kicks someone giving him lip and "it is" not "only banter" yet Neil Lennon gets castigated for defending himself from a real attack.

Real people have to put up with this stuff in real life and idiots such as virtually the entire Irish Times staff come out with stupid stuff worshipping travellers and other people who have courageously faced discrimination and have done no such thing rather they have just have stuff handed to them on a plate. And they want a bigger plate you ignorant discrimnatory settled people. And where is the gold leaf around the edges?

Donald Findlay QC raised the question to a witness as it emerged packages intended for Mr Lennon and other alleged targets were not franked and the postage underpaid.

This is from the MSM who labelled it a secatrian assault when Allan Mcgregor came back from a evening partaking in Tennets emmm the finest lager in the world as used and approved by Orange Order Temperance Lodges and he had forgotten his keys and how to use a doorbell and fell over an injured himself.

Fans of a rival club (Queens Park?) were labelled as thugs for the incident.

The incident that Donald Findlay is referring to was dismissed as Neil Lennon bringing it on himself just like the Mainstream Media pointed out that if Rodney King had not been a drunk exceeding the speed limit while driving on a suspended license and refusing to obey the cops he would never have sustained the beating that he got and thus he brought it on himself.

Latest Betfred ad

3 weeks today since the administrators moved in and they are still negotiating.

3 days with other clubs and there were redundicies.

This is eating into creditors money.

He is right.

Can it possibly get any worse for Rangers?.....

An inquiry into the Rangers Charity Foundation has been launched after it revealed the crisis-hit club would receive most of its proceeds from a friendly match.

The Ibrox club are hosting a game between former players of both Rangers and AC Milan later this month.
It had originally been organised to raise funds for the Rangers Charity Foundation, which was going to receive 60% of all money gathered by the game on March 30.

The charity, which has donated more than £2.3m to various causes since it was set up in 2002, has reduced the amount it will take from the game to 10%, meaning the majority of the money raised will go to the club, which is currently in administration.

On Tuesday, the Office of the Scottish Charity Regulator confirmed it had been made aware of "concerns" regarding the game after the change to the benefactors.

A spokesman for the regulator said: "We can confirm that we have an ongoing inquiry into the Rangers Charity Foundation. It would therefore not be appropriate to comment further."

On Saturday night their fans were looking forward to meeting Linfield in the last four of the Cup after Davidson scored the winner in their 2-1 quarter-final win over Newry City. Now, however, their date with the Belfast Blues in the semi-final will be scrapped.

Section Four of the Irish Cup rules states: “Any players registered (including loans) after 31 January (or the last day of the senior football mid season registration period) in any season will not be eligible for the competition in that season.”

It was last Wednesday that Ballymena announced Davidson’s signing and although it is understood that the club will use an email received from the IFA, stating that the 24-year-old was free to play, to appeal if they are expelled from the Cup, the ruling looks to be clear cut.

Dave King "invested" £20 million in Rangers and he did not know what was going on?

Outraged tycoon King accused former owner Sir David of "deceiving" him into investing £20million into the Ibrox coffers — and plans to SUE him.

King has been studying the accounts as he tries to lead a consortium to save the crippled club — but he believes the financial mess at Rangers is so dire the reigning SPL champs WILL go to the wall.

But the South African millionaire — who is Gers' second biggest shareholder after Whyte — IS confident he and a team of rich businessman can help a new Rangers rise from the ashes.

He is the second biggest shareholder in a business where 85% of it has been sold for a £ and he is the second biggest shreholder and only gets around to studying the accounts now.

The appointment of the Rangers favoured administrators has proved to be another failure. Any administrator worth his salt would have cut the staff and trimmed the costs. Instead we have days of stand offs with the players and remarkable statements being made by both parties.

Ally McCoist said when talk of the players being sacked, he wanted no part of that. That was wrong. He should have helped the admin team to sort out the wheat from the chaff, and then negotiate for the administrators on the level of player wage reductions that the club required.

Or it reminds of the time those cute adorable Wrigley Fieldites attacked LA Dodger players and stole some equipment which they tried to get back which resulted in suspensions for the Dodgers players and nothing for the cubbies.

I would call I LLyclon Hitlar a disgusting fan of this club who hounded Steve Bartman because they blamed him for a loss which was because he like everyone else went for a ball that an outfielder could not get but because they needed a scapegoat they went for an easy target. Except she has moved on to being a Yankee supporter.

RANGERS administrator Paul Clark has slammed the SPL — claiming league chiefs have blocked the sale of the crisis club.

The raging Duff and Phelps moneyman hoped to announce a preferred bidder for Gers yesterday.

Clark insists those plans were wrecked after SPL chief Neil Doncaster revealed proposals to hammer clubs in a financial mess.

The SPL want to impose a range of sanctions from the start of next season.

The key proposal would see clubs that are liquidated and reformed being punished with a ten-point deduction for TWO SEASONS.

CHARLIE RICHMOND last night blasted back at the SFA over attempts to smear his name.

Richmond turned his back on refereeing after 12 years as a Category One official this week.

But after the SFA had questioned his commitment, the former FIFA-list man fumed: “If I’m such a bad referee why are they letting me handle games involving the Old Firm?”

SFA chief executive Stewart Regan branded Richmond a ‘consistent under-performer’ on Twitter after the whistler fired a broadside at them in SunSport yesterday.

Read more: Twit makes twit of himself on twitter. well what else is it for?

CHARLIE RICHMOND knows the date his refereeing career was effectively ended by the SFA. December 28, 2010.
That was the day he was hauled in front of the referees committee and told he’d NEVER do an Old Firm fixture.

Richmond quit this week after 12 years on the SFA list — after claiming he’d been cold-shouldered for not sucking up to people in the Hampden corridors of power.

The SFA promptly came out fighting with a critical statement about the 43-year-old Ayrshire ref.

But Richmond last night fired back in what’s become an embarrassing war of words to the SFA. He said: “I was summoned to a referees committee meeting in December 2010.

Ibrox administrator Paul Clark feared bidders would be scared off after top-flight chiefs proposed a hard-hitting Financial Fair Play plan on Wednesday.

AFTER two months of torture my real fear for Rangers is that the pain is only just beginning.

At the end of a week when the identity of the preferred bidder should have become clear, more heavy clouds were cast over my old club.

The SPL don’t half know how to kick a man when he’s down.

I’d like to say that their spanner-in-the-works statement shocked me when it was released on Wednesday.

Sadly, it didn’t.

The fact is NOTHING that self-serving mob ever do surprises me any more.

They’ve never done Rangers — or Celtic for that matter — any favours, nor are they ever likely to either.

I thought it was generally accepted you couldn’t be punished for the same crime twice.

They aren't even punished for the crime once you stupid idiot.

But the simple fact is the SPL is so reliant on the money generated by the Old Firm that Gers are, essentially, too big to fail.

The old moral hazard argument. Save us or we will do it again.



As far as I'm concerned it's a travesty that the SPL are even considering allowing a new club to be entertained when their are many clubs waiting to take to the big stage again.

What does this message read to proud clubs the likes of Partick Thistle who tried to do it the honest way and almost folded because of the strict stipulations put in place?


Any new team. Whether they call themselves Rangers 2012, Rngers 1690, Wee Arra peepol or any other psuedonym should be forced to request permission from the football league for re entry to it's lowest tier.

We need Rangers Newco like a hole in the heed!

I will link the piece that the Partick Thistle sportsdwriter wrote comparing how his belobed Partick Thistle almost went under because they adhered to the rules of normal business whereas Rangers have gone broke by spending recklessly and by link I mean I won't be bothered to search for it because this "Partick Thistle" supporter criticised the Manchester police for their heavy handed behaviour when dealing with the shame that they brought onto the home city of Partick Thistle and when they were bringing shame on the homew city of Partick Thistle elsewhere in Europe he wrote and I quote " "

The boy, who lives in Lawford, Essex, pleaded guilty to religiously aggravated harassment at Colchester youth court on Wednesday.


MacDonalds may be teucthars but this company is owned by a NYSE company so harassing one of their employees is wrong whereas Neil Lennon is from part of the world where Lowlanders went to escape the famine in the 1600s by settling in what is now Noerthern Ireland so Neil Lennon's attacker was just justifiably telling a nobody that he was a nobody at Tynecastle that night.

The total debt of the 12(11 dude) clubs is over £100m as at 2011, not including Rangers big and small tax liability. I think a lot of clubs will be looking at this NEWCO, hoping it works, allow Rangers to stay in SPL, follow the NEWCO path then they will be allowed to stay in SPL too and it will be business as usual with NO DEBT.

This is NOT a shambles

Liability of all 12 is £234 million.

'As soon as I was announced as preferred bidder for Rangers, my team began to press ahead with our due diligence.

'Until then, information had been limited to what was made available in the internet data room and questions addressed to the administrators and their staff.

'In addition, I had preliminary discussions with the Scottish Footballing Authorities and limited discussions with Ally McCoist.

'Upon being named preferred bidder, discussions with Rangers staff started and discussions with all interested parties intensified.

'We continued to work through the holiday weekend in order to meet a very compressed schedule.

'By late Monday night, it became clear to me that preliminary information, discussions and analysis were, unfortunately, more optimistic than reality.

The chances of newco Rangers being waved back into the SPL increased last night after it emerged that five top-flight clubs will now be required to oppose their return.

And, in what might yet prove a further boost to preferred bidder Bill Miller, chief executive Neil Doncaster refused to deny reports that the SPL currently have no power to impose any sanctions on Rangers as a condition for re-entry.

Having already been postponed by a week, yesterday’s five-and-a-half-hour meeting of top-flight clubs once more ended without resolution.

Duff & Phelps, the Ibrox administrators, did not turn up at Hampden but sent a request to adjourn a vote on new financial fair-play rules — a request which was unanimously approved by the other 11 sides.

Hoots mon! Fat Sally wants to know the name of three men on the SPL commisssion

Its anely right.

BIG-hearted Rangers fans have stumped up the cash to pay for ex-captain Davie Weir’s leaving gift — after the skint club didn’t settle the bill.

The cash-strapped Ibrox side commissioned a personalised crystal decanter set for the former Scotland and Light Blues stalwart.

But makers Glencairn Crystal were still owed money for the engraved gift — THREE MONTHS after Weir quit the club.

So supporters raised the £354 at a pub function last weekend — then handed it over at the firm’s HQ in East Kilbride.

A source revealed: “The thought of David Weir sitting at home looking at this gift really made some of us feel uncomfortable and angry.

Everton coach Weir, who made 230 appearances for Rangers, was presented with the memento by chairman Craig Whyte and Rangers Supporters’ Assembly president Andy Kerr.

Only £130 million+ needs to be raised for other creditors.

THE lawyer who brokered Craig Whyte’s takeover of Rangers yesterday told how he wished he’d never met the tycoon.

Gary Withey said Whyte, 41, sees others involved in his business dealings as nothing but “collateral damage”.

And he was furious at himself for not having concerns about the Ibrox chief when he bought the club from Sir David Murray for £1.

The Gers boss famously coined the phrase, ‘We Don’t Do Walking Away’, just weeks after Rangers plunged into administration.

With a 12-month SFA transfer embargo in place, McCoist will be left with a team of kids if the likes of Stevie Naismith, Allan McGregor and Steven Davis are all sold in cut-price deals.

At last Mr McMillian say THE OTHER SPL CLUBS DID NOT GET US IN THIS MESS,true and he is the first from Rangers fc to say this

All through the past three months Rangers fc have been blaming everyone except them selfs.

Then we go on to Mr Ross Blyth,using strong words .he is WARNING the clubs when they come to vote,why use strong words like WARNING.

He should be more humble and try to tell people the downfall of Rangers not being in the SLP is not the best interest of Scottish football.

Still no SORRY for the mess from anyone one at Ibrox,any large company in the past when anything untold has happened have come and said sorry even for things that have happened 100 years ago.

So eat humle pie and say SORRY accept what the club has done in the past accept the punnishment and lets get on with football.

Rangers might have to hand back tainted titles

I believe bank robbers do not like handing back ill-gotten gains.

Under strict rules clubs must tell the SPL of every payment made to players.

The highest cash payment was £6.3million to ex-owner Sir David Murray, while 63 players and 24 staff are said to have had payouts.

Acccording to figures obtained by BBC Scotland Barry Ferguson got £2.49million, while former boss Alex McLeish got £1.7million and goalkeeper Stefan Klos £2million. Spanish striker Nacho Novo and Dutch ace Ronald De Boer also netted £1.2million each.

Ex-boss Graeme Souness received £30,000 from the trust in 2001 — 10 years after leaving the club.

"clubs who won trophies and titles by buying new players whilst in debt instead of clearing their debt have the same morals as rangers year after year after year they have carried debt but continue to buy players it is obvious they cannot afford,aberdeen hearts celtic hibs killie etc etc,yet the fans of these clubs shout the loudest about the morals of rangers when their own clubs operate with the same morals when they buy players on the tick they cannot afford in the hope they will win something.watp."

While it is possible to remove the player from Ibrox it is not feasible to remove Ibrox from the player?

SCOTLAND legend Colin Hendry “dropped like he was diving for a penalty” after being “tapped” on the shoulder during a row with a former pal.

Hector McFarlane claims the 6ft 1ins ex-defender collapsed when he touched him following their meeting in a trendy bar.

But sources close to Hendry denied he had fallen during the argument and accused Hector of lashing out and punching the Braveheart star — as well as his 22-year-old daughter Rheagan.

Hendry, 46, spent hours being quizzed by cops after a member of his party called them over the bust-up at Mojito in Lytham St Annes, Lancs, on Friday night.

Hector’s missus Williamina claimed the argument had started after Rheagan “gave her a look you’d give something you scraped off your shoe”.

The 61-year-old said: “She swanned past me and gave me a look. She was in her massive heels — she must have been 6ft tall while I’m just 5ft 2in. I said to her, ‘You’re ugly on the inside and you’re ugly on the outside’. Then I pushed past her — it was the only way to get to the toilet.”

Minutes later, Williamina’s hubby Hector spotted Hendry across the crowded bar.

The furious 63-year-old was recently told by Hendry’s bankruptcy trustee that he can now expect to see just seven per cent — around £4,000 — of the cash his former pal owes him.

Hector said: “He and I have been wrangling over the £91,000 he owes me for years but I’ve never had the chance to speak to him about it face to face.

“I went over, tapped him on the shoulder and said ‘Colin’. He collapsed to the floor like he was diving for a penalty. It was incredible.

A TYCOON behind an £11million bid to buy Rangers once played for CELTIC.

Property developer Stephen McKenna, 45, forked out £15,000 to play in front of 60,000 fans at Parkhead.

Ibrox hero John Brown is fronting a consortium for McKenna and business partner Allan Stewart, 55. But the businessmen have tax-dodging pasts and Stewart has been made bankrupt TWICE. A source said: “Things seem to be going from bad to worse for the Rangers support.”

Rangers were so badly run in the good old days they can now only attract charlatans

They are using one of their firms Aleftav for the takeover, but according to Companies House its last reported net worth was ZILCH.

The pair have three other firms under parent company Stewart and McKenna Property Management Ltd — but combined only have a value of £845,000.

Meanwhile Stewart has twice been declared bankrupt and was banned from being a director for seven years in the 1990s.

Whyte being banned for seven years did not make him fail the fit and proper test so why should it matter to these crooks?

Bury have poured cold water on suggestions they could be bought by Rangers as part of a plan for the Glasgow giants to ply their trade in England.

Reports claim Charles Green's consortium, who took over the Light Blues last week, have looked into the possibility of acquiring the npower League One side.

The plan would then apparently be for newco Rangers to take up Bury's fixtures for the forthcoming campaign, while continuing to play their home games at Ibrox.

Bury's place not for sale. Greater Manchester does not want Rangers.

Mounting pressure from the SFA could see Rangers relegated to the First Division as part of radical new plans to resolve the greatest crisis Scottish football has ever faced.

The proposal, discussed by the Scottish Football League board at an emergency meeting, would see Charles Green's newco Rangers voted back into the SPL by club chairmen on July 4 on condition they accept responsibility for the wrongdoings of the defunct Ibrox club.

Then, as part of the SPL investigation which found that 'old' Rangers had a case to answer over dual contracts for players and management, the club would be immediately relegated to the First Division.

Good question. Ibrox is a Grade II listed building so there is not much what can be done with the site and I do not know does the SFA or SPL have the same by-law that football grounds can only be sold as football grounds except if the club selling is moving to a new stadium. The FA brought in this because football clubs in Victorian times were threatened with being bought by property speculators who wanted city centre sites but as the Scottish authorities did not have anything to prevent Motherwell in administration signing three players on increased wages from clubs who could not afford the wages because they were not in administration and therefore unable to pay backroom staff necessitating 20 of them being sacked so that the club in administration could offer increased wages to rival teams players which is not possible in England I would suggest the Scottish authorities do not know their arses from what Dutch full back used to leave stuck in opponents faces.

“I was at Sheffield United with Charles. He has put his money where his mouth is. He came in at a time when Rangers were struggling and he rescued them.

“The fans have to try and trust him a little bit.

“I know it’s hard, because there are former players and former managers in there who are trying to front another consortium.

JOHN BROWN has declared all out war on Charles Green — accusing the Rangers chief of “surrendering” to Peter Lawwell and Celtic.

The Ibrox legend let rip after SunSport revealed details of Green’s desperate late plan to keep crisis-torn Gers in the SPL.

This is a difficult situation where the only blame can be pointed at Rangers. They were mismanaged, cheated and were caught. But luckily for them they were liquidized before they could be punished. Contrary to the beliefs of others Rangers were not kicked out of the SPL, Rangers are no more. A new team was vying to be let into the SPL, a team with no history who have never even kicked a ball. Of course they should not be let in, it's a no brainer, why should a new team go straight to the top (money is not a reason). Neither should they be allowed to swan into div1 or 2 as the teams below them have been around for years playing and competing and deserve better than having an arrogant new team getting to start ahead of them. Automatic entry into Div3 is not the answer either, any team wishing to take up the empty space should be allowed to apply, Spartans, Cove etc all have as much right if not more of a right to league football than a new team. Well done SPL, come on SFL follow suit.

If Rangers had paid their taxes they would not be in this mess.

People seem to want to take yet another kick at the club and I agree with Ally McCoist that enough is enough.

Everything has been agreed to get Rangers their SFA membership but there is still talk of taking the titles away if an investigation goes against them.

It would be a symbolic move but what’s the point? What does it achieve? NOTHING.

It is wrong to take titles from a cheating club

For me those titles were won fair and square.

I saw someone compare it to drugs cheats in the Tour de France but that’s rubbish.

What Rangers are accused of is trying to dodge the taxman, not cheat the opposition on the park. It would be a different story if it was match fixing like we saw in Italy — but this was nothing to do with the team, it was accountants and lawyers.

I think the complaint lodged was that by cheating with tax evading club they were able to "pay" for players that they could not afford and so had a team that they could not finance so if they were operating by not cheating through stealing money from the tax man their squad would have been closer to their opponents standards and there would have been a level playing field.

"The companies running Rangers died. The titles we won fair and square with money those companies gave to us whether it was corrupt money or not."

I cannot find the story that has one of Charles Green's new directors revealed as a guy who was in charge of 30 bankrupted companies who would be just the sort of guy a club taking over from a failed club would need in the directors box directing them.

You answer your own question with the para 3rd from bottom.

Rangers won those titles because they were able(?) to buy and pay players of English Premiership quality. They could do this only because they cheated. Had they played only those they could afford would they have won many titles?
