Walter Smith and Co bone pickers.

The announcement yesterday that Sir Walter of Cardigan and ‘some backers’ want to buy rangers is the equivalent of Carrion Fowl and vultures picking the bones of a dead carcus.
Where was the Brave Sir Walter and his cohorts when the now defunct RFC were in dire need of a consortium the fans of that club would believe in and back during the administration period ? No where to be seen.
They have left it to Charles Green to do all the hard graft  and get some money together to buy what remains of RFC 1872  and now they want to walk in and take over the newco. I hope Charles Green turns around and tells them they can have it for £15m makes a few quid and exits stage left.
Despite what people may think of Green he was the only guy who put money on the table. Now the Rangers support want Green out and this shower of bone pickers in because this will keep their direct link with their sectarian past and they will hope that Sir Cardigan will be able to sweet talk the SFA and the SPL into giving them a safe passage into both the SFA and more importantly the SPL.
Green was only in control of the old company assets for a matter of hours before the Ibrox hoards abused him and told him to sell up. What a f*ckin cheek. Not a word of thanks to the guy for at least saving something for them. That support just want to revert to the old No Surrender and FTP ways of the good old days’. Green will now be put under heavy pressure from the Rangers support and the Scottish media to sell up and go. To my mind the man should stick 2 fingers up to the lot of them. Unfortunately in doing so he will probably suffer the bullying tactics and death threats that the RFC support are well known for.
On a side note BBC Scotland’s Newsnight team’s show last night was far superior to the sham on STV. Gordon Brewer through some real and challenging questions to a panel made which included only one person with a genuine interest in Rangers. It was most enjoyable and proved that there is still a long way to go in this saga. Jim Spence done a good job of making it clear that their the majority of SPL fans do not want this newco near the SPL and to his mind they will not be voted in because of pressure now being applied from supporters on their club chairmen which  gives me heart.
That old club is dead, the new one has to start from the bottom and work it”s passage back into the SPL.

  1. Agreed. If Baron Greenback can make a quick profit from Smithers, Dobbies & The Bussman he’ll get the fuck right out of dodge.
    But, alas, I fear time is running out for next season. And old grandpa Walter knows this so he’ll be at a disadvantage in negotiations to buy.
    And even if the new newco with Smith at the helm ride in and claim the carcass for themselves I think that would be the point where we found out where the unaccounted EBT money went.
    And, keeping a watchful, cold eye over all of this is Hector and his attack dogs in the form of BDO. They’ll sniff out and hunt down as much cash for the public purse as they can get out of Minty, Whytey and co.
    The reason they blame everyone else for their sins is because that’s what cheats do. Contrition would be admission.
    Gid riddance.

  3. James,
    Thanks. I’ve been trying to take in as much information about this whole sordid affair as possible over the last year or so.
    My gut feeling has been to absorb the blogs, Internet news sites and MSM but not post anything. Over recent days I’ve made a conscious decision to post my thoughts.
    The prime driver being the half-truths, lies and spin that are being peddled by the big hoose and it’s media puppets.
    Every taxpayer deserves to know the truth. And every journo worth his salt should be asking more critical questions of what’s being going on. (Not one MSM outlet has yet to ask Walter about EBT’s – Talk about a fucking elephant in the room!)
    The fact that the MSM don’t probe stories like this will spell their slow demise as the dinosaurs struggle to adapt to media of the 21st century.
    Sites like your own, Phil MacG’s and RTC have been at the forefront of telling it as it is and in the end the truth will out.
    Now, of course there’s a lot of angles on a story and some of the anti-Gers biased sites are looking at things through green tinted glasses.
    But that’s not a problem as they make the reader well aware that that’s their line. The MSM claim a ‘neutral’ line of Honest Journalism. What a load of Pish.
    Me thinks the MSM, like the players, board, other employees were on ‘the take’ in some form or another.
    But the truth will out so long as we keep asking the right questions and so long as we keep asking the MSM to ask the right questions.
    Hail hail.
