The hooker and the tramp

You must admit Rangers are an enduring franchise. For that is what they have become a brand that has had three owners in less than two years, a name to rent with a family to feed. Like a hooker standing on the street corner plying her trade selling her body for a fix or a tramp with his mis-spelt cardboard sign saying “homeless and hungry”. Its all very sad really.
It is obvious to a blind man running for the bus that Mr Green is out of his depth. He is on that street corner with the begging bowl out…prepared to sleep with anyone who will give him some money. In this case though its not HIS body he is selling but the soul of what was once a proud Scottish football club.
We know that his utterances, insults and implied threats have frightened away sensible investors who once maybe, just maybe, might have seen an opportunity to own a bit of a global brand. He has damaged that club at a time when dignity and decorum were needed. Look at Kenny Dalgish’s handling of the Suarez debacle last season. That ultimately cost him his job and tarnished that other franchise, Team Liverpool. Nobody was counselling Kenny and for sure, nobody is counselling Mr Green right now.
On the one hand he had to tap into the persecution psyche of the ‘ra peepil to get season tickets sold but on the other he needed to present a confident professional persona of a man in control of his destiny to attract the money men. Clearly this strategy has not worked. Not enough season tickets being sold and certainly no white knights on the horizon. Quite frankly he is just not convincing enough. The fans dont trust him and the business community look at his track record and run to the hills.
I have said from the very off Rangers could go down again unless very drastic action is taken.
Their cash burn is frightening right now and the money is going to run out soon. So why do they continue to live the life of a top flight Scottish club, signing players when they should be downsizing and stablising their position? It beggars belief the wages they are paying to compete in the fourth tier of Scottish football. The arrogance is still there, the posing and posturing the smirking. Like the swagger of a once rich man strolling into a bar with his shiny suit frayed at the cuffs flashing his ‘looky looky’ Rolex believing that he has fooled everyone in to thinking he has still got it all. There is nothing worse than the nasty smell of desperation that no amount of air freshner could hide. Yes our ‘meeja’ are gamely spraying plenty of that about. It seems every day we read about another billionaire backer declaring his interest. Well actually its now a consortium of millionaires and pretty soon it will be a bunch of businessmen and so on until we will be reading about them entering administration again.
If you or I had got ourselves into such massive debt. We might just have about got a CVA away. Theirs was so horrendous even the politicians couldnt save them. So why continue in this current fashion living in a house they cannot afford with their Murray Park dacha far too big for their needs?
Bite the bullet sell the damned places. They would certainly get much more than the £20m they are looking for by floating the club. There is a perfectly good stadium on the other side of the city that is grossly underutilised where they still have friends. I’m talking about Hampden here not Firhill.
If Green could grow balls and sell he might just save his franchise…or…the thought of losing the midden might force the loyal to dip into their pockets and save their club. That is highly unlikely because as we know they are a lazy feckless and selfish bunch who still firmly believe that some fool will save them.
Just like the last two.
