Later today,we will find out whether the rest of Scottish football believes-in numbers sufficient to carry the vote-that the SPFL have been guilty of bullying and coercion in relation to the Good Friday vote to bring the season to a premature but inevitable close. I don’t know why they are bothering to have a vote on it as they have already been found guilty by the people who really matter.
Rangers have spoken,and so that is that. Don the black cap.
If you recall,the Ibrox entity voiced disquiet over the vote almost immediately,raising some serious allegations and demanding the immediate suspension of the top three members of the SPFL executive,pending further investigation. Quite rightly,the SPFL refused this demand on the simple grounds that any allegations were far too vague to act upon,and were required in full and in writing in any case.
“No smoke without fire” declared the Scottish media and quite incredibly demanded the removal of the three executives-regardless of the obvious fact that no evidence had yet been presented,nor the allegations themselves clarified! And even when Rangers did finally release a NINETEEN PAGE dossier to back up their claims,claims which were little more than dae whit we tell yeez,we ur the people,still the clamour for their removal grew from those voices and keyboards.
Well,I’m all for having a powerful Fourth Estate. And one which isn’t afraid to speak truth to power,to hold all the other pillars of state to account. There are many prizes available worldwide for investigative journalism,be it Pulitzer,TRACE,Rule of Law Award,you name it and there’s a prize for it. Our intrepid cadre of journos won’t be bothering any nominating committees though-as even the most cursory of investigations would have dismissed the entirety of Rangers claims as fanciful and vengeful,intent only on serving their own self-interest.
Now,we can’t really blame them for that. It may well be that they simply didn’t know where to begin,how to unearth the truth at the base of the whole affair. It may be that,especially given the short period of time they had to read such an enormous and detailed body of work as a NINETEEN PAGE dossier,they simply missed some important points. If only there was someone around who could put the whole issue into words that they could easily understand. Underlining the important parts,and maybe with some of those bullet point thingies. Even they couldn’t cock it up to such a disastrous and career-credibility threatening extent.
Well,aye. Because in 2014,they were provided with all of that and more with regard to the fraudulent application for a European licence three years previously by none other than…
Now,don’t jump too hastily to any conclusions here. Of course it isn’t the same Rangers that are making the current allegations. That would be just incredible,and ridiculous. No,it’s a DIFFERENT Rangers completely-if you wish to sue them for past infractions,that is. When it comes to playing out of the same stadium in front of the same fans and in the same colours,it’s the SAME Rangers. As it is when it comes to having won 114 trophies in only eight years-most of which were awarded by Neil Doncaster,the very same one that they want rid of!
AULDHEID,for it was he,provided leading members of the Scottish media with all of the details in this case,laying out in plain language for them all to read what exactly transpired in 2011. Those same intrepid journalists who are clamouring now for an investigation into the square root of sod all totally ignored the information into a major sporting scandal. Because it didn’t suit their agenda. It laid bare the lies and deceit of their beloved Rangers,the very Rangers that they are prepared to bat for now. In the name of integrity.
As ever,we owe a huge debt to AULDHEID. His timing for the release of this information couldn’t have been better. Because it lays bare the naked bias of everyone involved.
They aren’t interested in the truth. They aren’t interested in integrity. They aren’t even that interested in their own professional reputation. Their only role is to serve,and to forward the case of Rangers.
Scotland’s Shame has more shameful bedfellows. This is not news. But let’s remember who they are and what they are whenever they attempt to influence the course of the game up here. They are NOT journalists. They are fans with a typewriter.
