I was sent a guest article yesterday,which being planned as today’s piece meant that I had a day off. I love stuff like this-for the obvious reason that I get a day off!
Sadly,he asked me to pull it,as some of the content could not be proved. Bastert.
It referenced the £20m loans to clubs,and to whom exactly it went. There are conflicting accounts-hence why it has been pulled-about whether eleven clubs or six clubs took advantage of this free money.
If someone offered me £1.6m interest free over twenty years,you would never get me out of the pub. Seems some clubs declined that offer-which left the money available to the remaining clubs.
And I think we can all guess which club was at the front of the queue for their £3m and more.
I said yesterday in a comment that I wouldn’t be judging AP on this season alone,but on the progress being made. And that I know who I hold responsible for the regression in the last two years or so. Most comments I make on the site-or elsewhere-are pretty much throwaway things,but I was very serious about that one.
And if Celtic declined to take an interest free loan,knowing full well that their share would be given to our rivals,there are serious questions to be asked.
Of course,there have been serious questions to be asked for the last decade or so. And we know how that has gone. We have a huge problem at our club as regards governance,as certain people will confirm.
An interest free loan to our rivals-which is effectively what we did-is the least of our worries. As I said,I know who I hold responsible. The big question is why he did it.
Maybe the smartest man in the room was the elephant in the room all along.
