I go away for a couple of days and come back to the news that Rangers* in Administration along with Craig Whyte have been hammered by the SFA based on the results of an enquiry by top Scots Law lord.
I then had a look on the SFA web site and worked my through the charges and the punishment given out to both Whyte and Rangers* in administration to get a clear idea of the reasons for the punishment.
After working my way through the legal jargon I came to the conclusion that Rangers* in administration had in fact been treated in the same way as any other Scottish club. Fairly.
Then I come across and article by the RST asking it’s members to boycott Scotland games, their players to boycott playing for Scotland and boycott away games next season.
Let me take these three points in turn
- boycott Scotland games: Rangers* ‘fans’ stopped following Scotland en mass around 20 years ago.
- players to boycott playing for Scotland: If you look back over 20 years you will find as a matter of fact that more Rangers* have had mysterious illness and injuries than any other club prior to a Scotland game but for some reason made a miraculous recovery to play for their club only days later. So that’s a Joke.
- boycott away games next season: Why? it was not the SPL or possibly in their case the SFL who handed out this punishment. It was the SFA.
If that was not enough yon Macmillan chairman of the Rangers* Supporters Association attempts to drag Neil Lennon’s run in with the SFA in to the Rangers* mess.
To top it all off we have the ‘cheeky chappie’ himself Mr Alistair ‘Dignity’ McCoist ranting away to anyone who will give him hoose room about how he wants the names of the people who decided on Rangers* in administration had broke SFA articles of association and brining the game into disrepute.
Here’s just a snippet of what Mr Dignity had to say:
“Plain and simply, I think it is an absolutely shocking decision,” McCoist told Blues News.
“I found out the decision last night and I was shocked and absolutely appalled by the way this supposedly independent judicial panel was coming down on us in this form.
“Who are these people? I want to know who these people are. I’m a Rangers supporter and the Rangers supporters and the Scottish public deserve to know who these people are, people who are working for the SFA.
Why can’t you just admit you were found guilty by the SFA of cheating and breaking articles of association. Man up. Liquidate your corrupt football club. Apologise to those you have cheated out of money (you may want to start with UK ARMED FORCES as you seemed keen enough to make money from them). And finally apply to the SFL for a place in the 3rd division and work your way back into the SPL without cheating.
Then and only then can you start acting like a proper football club and not a right wing pro Unionist political institution.
