I’ve just had the ‘pleasure’ of watching Giovanni Di Stefano’s plea to his fellow Rangers shareholders and it leaves me with the a few burning questions.
- Is this guy a Saint who will ride to the rescue of the shareholders of the now departed Rangers PLC ?
- Is he a sinner who sat back for 20 years saying nothing about EBT’s and dual contracts? (he honestly may not have known about these practices but as a share holder and a clever guy he should have known at least about EBT’S)
- Is he just a self serving publicity seeker ?
I think I’ll go with a combination of the last 2. Mr Di Stefano’s. Throughout his video plea he bangs on about conspiracy and shadowy men in suites trying to obliterate Rangers Football Club since that club suffered an insolvency event and obviously Craig Whyte.
However at no point in the video where he entertains us with tales of nearly saving Saddam Hussein’s life (God bless him) and men in suits in the Houses of Parliament does Mr Di Stefano even hint at the corruption that occurred at RFC.plc under the ownership if Sir David Murray.
Mr Di Stefano’s video would bring a tear to a glass eye but I suggest if he has any quibbles over losing his share investment he should be calling Sir David Murray out not Duff and Phelps. He warns of a ‘bouncing bomb’ hitting Scottish football which in fairness is consistent with the type of language being used by those desperate to save the dying RFC and also chimes nicely with the Dam busters theme the dying clubs supporters loved humming along with pre match. I believe one of his main motives for his video slips out near the end when he ‘bigs up’ Mr Charles Green.
I think Mr Di Stefano’s motives lie purely in self promotion and trying to do Charlie Green a favour.
