If you know your history – 6th October

130 years ago… 1891 and the Scotsman (5th October) reporting that Celts’ visit to Paisley on Saturday had attracted a huge crowd (not recorded) with many arriving on trains, causing a 15 minute delay to kick-off.

Regular ‘keeper Duff was out with a heavy cold due to an absolute drenching in torrential rain at Celtic Park during the previous week’ victory against Champions ( joint) Dumbarton. Hibs kindly loaned their keeper Kelly to stand in, and he performed admirably conceding only one goal to an improving Buddies team.

Interestingly, only two Of the three local ‘’Old Abbey’ Parish Bhoys played: Doyle of Paisley and Gallagher (the correct spelling is Gallacher) of Johnstone. His close neighbour Peter Douds ( Dowds is often used, incorrectly) was curiously absent. Perhaps he was ill with same complaint as Duff.

Hearts (15) still lead the table and Celts are joint second with Dumbarton & Leith Athletic ( all 12). However, the Bhoys have 2 games in hand on Hearts and Leith with 1 game in hand over Dumbarton.

Could this be the Season?

St Mirren:-

Fleming, J McFarlane, R McFarlane, McCartney, Brown, McBain, Hamilton, Wylie, Douglas, Dunlop, Easton.

Goal:- Hamilton.

Celtic:- Kelly, Reynolds, Doyle, Gallagher, Kelly, Brady, McCallum, Madden, T Maley, Coleman, Campbell.

Goals:- McCallum, McCallum 44.

IVY DAY

When Charles Stewart Parnell died on 6 October 1891, his funeral to Glasnevin cemetery was one of the largest seen in Ireland.

The ‘Ivy Day’ commemoration, which commenced the following year, has continued ever since, throughout conflict and pandemic, one of the most enduring Irish commemorative events.

The Society marks the occasion with an annual lecture and wreath laying/oration at Glasnevin on/or about the Sunday closes to Parnell’s anniversary.

The 2021 ‘Ivy Day’ commemoration took place on Sunday 3rd of October, when the annual graveside oration was delivered by Prof Daire Keogh.

90 years ago – 1931 and On this day it’s Glasgow Cup Semi-Final 1st replay. Ronnie Simpson’s dad Jimmy Simpson was playing at Centre Half for Rangers and missed a clearance kick to allow McGrory in to score a last minute equaliser. Thereby taking the tie to a second replay.

Earlier Celtic had a perfectly good Bertie Thompson goal ruled offside.

It appears only the linesman saw an infringement…and not a thing has changed.

The following evening ( imagine) 7th October, Celtic made one change with Scarff coming in for Napier as the team returned to Ibrox for the 2nd semi-final replay.

Ranges made two changes to their halfback line and dropped Sammy English. Jimmy Simpson redeemed himself in this game by keeping McGrory quiet. Smith scored the only goal of the game to take the Ibrox club to the Final against Queens Park on the following Saturday.

An indication of the importance of The Glasgow Cup in the period: over 122,000 people paid to watch all three ‘Old Firm’ Semi-Finals.

Hi,folks.

We lost a much loved member of our group earlier this week. I would be suitably grateful if you read the following.

++++++

The CQN/Sentinelcelts community, and the many friends of Garry Duncan aka Delaneys Dunky, would like to commemorate Garry’s life and friendship as well pay respect to his recent untimely passing.

We have had many great suggestions from you on how we best commerate Garry’s life, including flowers, a memorial brick, donation to Mary’s meals and financial support for the family etc.

Garry’s family, like so many others in our world today, is not a rich family and find their wealth is through the happiness of the family, so to have the burden of not only laying Garry to rest, but also the cost that goes with it is horrific .

Having spoken with Garry’s son Ryan, we feel it appropriate to pass any monies raised direct to the family to let them decide the best way to use it.

Anyone who wants to support the family in leaving a long lasting commemoration in honour of Garry can do so through making a donation via bank transfer to –

o Account name: Walk With Shay
o Account number: 15326765
o Sort code: 80-22-60
o Bank: Bank of Scotland
Please note – tick business account

:You can also make a donation via paypal to walkwithshay@yahoo.com

Donations will close on Friday 8th October.

Thank you in advance for supporting Garry and his family at this very difficult time.

🙏🙏🙏🙏🙏

A wee tale re that song; It was the first record bought by my Dad for our new ‘ radiogram ‘ in Dublin , but was used as a cover for The Rising of the Moon to be smuggled through customs at the Northern Ireland/ Eire border as the RotM was a banned record in UK.
We always wondered why he bothered as his case was NEVER searched! He borrowed a good friend’s. case ,said friend being an ex submariner from WW2 and had a Union Flag painted/superimposed on the inside of the lid!
Wasn’t daft my Dad😁!

Incredible to think that Jimmy McGrory was firing them in 90 years ago-and had been for about eight years by then!

But sobering to consider that John Thomson and Peter Scarff,his team-mates that day,were each destined to die tragically young.

CCB,
Re. Saint Therese of the Roses.
I remember the song well from my childhood. My mother & father bought it when I was about 3 years old. It was played on the gramophone lots & lots for several years.

Apparently it caused a stir with the BBC, they refused to broadcast it!

“In the United Kingdom, a version was recorded by the singer Malcolm Vaughan and reached number 3 on the UK Singles Chart.[3] Its success was helped following a controversy involving the BBC when, in October 1956 Vaughan had been scheduled to appear on BBC TV’s Off The Record to promote the release of the song, but had the invitation withdrawn after a BBC committee decided that it was unsuitable for broadcast. The reason given was that “the lyric is contrary both to Roman Catholic doctrine and to
Protestant sentiment.”[4] The resulting controversy coupled with airplay on Radio Luxembourg ensured the record’s success. As well as peaking at number 3, it stayed in the charts for five months and ultimately sold half a million copies.[4]”

I can’t see anything in the lyrics which would upset the Catholic Church! Probably more to do with the protestant sentiment at that time.
Good old Radio Luxembourg had no qualms with it. 🙂

From The Herald:- A SENIOR judge has ordered administrators of Rangers to pay £3.4m in compensation over “breach of duty” after deciding that Ibrox and Murray Park should have been put up for sale after the club collapsed.

Lord Tyre has made a judgement after former club administrators Paul Clark and David Whitehouse of Duff and Phelps were accused in court of a seriously flawed strategy in raising money for thousands left out of pocket by the club’s financial implosion in 2012.

Morning folks. Happy day of Woden aka hump day.
Idiot here forgot to announce an article and pin a comment, doh. Cheers lads. I blame myself and shall launch an internal investigation into these spurious allegations.

What jumped out at me was the 122k punters attending all three games and replays.
I understand how a replay the next night might appeal to the average Joe as he gets another day of dreaming and another night out but the system is set up to be taken advantage of. I believe it certainly was at times with both fans rioting after realizing they were being had.
If anyone can shed anymore light on that occurance please do.
It’s clear why replays were scrapped, thankfully.
I wonder were the refs in on it, or maybe just key players after a word from the chairman.
Either way, how many times was fix was in?
And that’s just the OF, it probably went on all across the football world.
Shocking really, football must be glad to move on from of the park events influencing on-field decisions.
There’s no smoking gun ala Res12 if the Chairman told his star defender “we need the money a replay can bring”.
It’s not just a funny old game, it’s a slippery one at times.

Also notable is the big carrier bag full of money collected by the Tims to put towards impoverished children’s holidays. It’s great to know we still do the same, we walk in the footsteps of those who came before us.
It’s great to know we were always classy.
I recently seen a video of a woman filling carrier bags with petrol for some reason.
If carrier bags could talk,,,

And then the LSD fact. I watched a great movie regarding that time ( Ken Kesseys Magic Bus) and was stunned to find out it was legal and there were actual billboards advertising Acid parties back then. It’s funny the sixties were mostly gone by the time it was banned.
Gov late to the party on that occasion.

Lionel Richie, what a smooth crooner. If Abba van pull out another album,,,

Thanks a million as usual SES, a gentleman and a scholar.

Hail Hail
I hope Garry has truly found eternal peace. He shall always live on through us all.

Early 80s,a girl across the road from me studied Pharmacy at Strathclyde Uni.

One of her first labs-very strictly regulated,of course-was the manufacture of lysergic acid. Mainly because of how simple it is.

Quantities were measured and matched to ensure that no substance left the lab,then disposed of.

I think they got off lightly,given the fun we had been having for years about the “official” book valuation of Ibrox.

It was the only thing that kept their “assets” remotely viable when compared to their debt.

And hit a high of £120m.

So,I confidently expect an investigation for fraud because of the disparity in those figures.

And to win the lottery tonight too.

WO FINANCIAL experts whose actions in trying to save Rangers fell below an ‘ordinarily competent’ standard have been ordered to pay £3.4 million to the club’s liquidators.
Judge Lord Tyre found on Wednesday that David Whitehouse and Paul Clark breached their duties whilst acting as administrators at the then ailing club.
In a judgement issued at the Court of Session in Edinburgh, Lord Tyre ordered the duo to hand over £3,404,500 to financial services firm BDO.
The company had won the sum following proceedings which were heard at Scotland’s highest civil court earlier this years.
BDO’s legal team told Lord Tyre that both Mr Whitehouse and Mr Clark failed to cut costs sufficiently well enough after they were drafted into save the club almost 10 years ago.
Advocate Kenny McBrearty QC claimed the pair could have stopped the club from being liquidated by and made it more attractive to potential buyers by making staff redundant.
Mr McBrearty also told the court that both Mr Whitehouse and Mr Clark could have sold on players like Steven Naismith, Steven Whittaker, Maurice Edu and Kyle Lafferty.
He also said that Mr Whitehouse and Clark should have considered selling club assets like training ground Murray Park. The lawyer said the pair should have thought about a deal which would have seen Ibrox being sold and being leased back to the club.
In a 125 page judgement, Lord Tyre agreed with the submissions made by Mr McBrearty.
Writing about the way Mr Whitehouse and Mr Clark considered redundancies, Lord Tyre wrote that the men relied too much on a report which had been provided to them by manager Ally McCoist.
He wrote: “I address firstly the steps taken by the respondents to inform themselves of the factors relevant to their decision-making in relation to player and non-player redundancies and player sales.
“In my opinion the respondents’ actings in this regard fell below the standard reasonably to be expected of an ordinarily competent administrator in a number of respects.
“I am satisfied that the respondents acted without having taken independent advice on certain critical matters about which they required to be informed.
“As regards player redundancies, they relied upon the opinion of the manager, Mr McCoist, whom they ought not to have regarded as being in a position to offer a dispassionate opinion as to the number of possible redundancies that could be made while leaving the club with a squad capable of fulfilling its fixtures, or the identities of the players who could be released.
“It is noteworthy that his list included only four players proposed for release from contract, three of whom were in any event out of contract in three months’ time, and one (Alexander) in the twilight of his career.
“The respondents regarded Mr McCoist’s proposal as insufficient but failed to follow through the implication of this, ie that they needed to obtain advice from someone else.
“The consequence was that by the time of the negotiations of wage reductions, the respondents did not have a reliable list of potential redundancies to use when making a comparison with the savings obtainable from wage reductions.”
Mr Whitehouse, and Mr Clark – who were employed by financial services firm, Duff & Phelps – were appointed by the Court of Session as administrators after HMRC took Rangers to court for £18m of unpaid tax in February 2012.
The two men went on to sell the business and assets of the Oldco to Charles Green’s consortium for £5.5m before BDO were appointed to liquidate the old company.
The three men were later among seven indicted over fraud allegations relating to Rangers – before the case against them was dropped in June 2016.
Both Mr Whitehouse and Mr Clark raised a multi million pound action against the police and prosecutors last year. Prosecutors admitted the case against the duo was “malicious” and conducted “without probable cause”.
They both received multi million pound settlements.
Prosecutors also admitted that Mr Green, who was also arrested during the probe and eventually acquitted, was wrongfully taken to court – and that the prosecution against him was malicious.
At proceedings earlier this year, Mr McBrearty told the court that the two administrators acted negligently.
He said: “What we have said is that a hallmark of negligence is the failure to take advice. What we have said is that a common hallmark of negligence is a failure to take specialist advice from people experienced in the business of the company.”
Both Mr Whitehouse and Mr Clark denied the negligence claim.
Their legal team claimed that they didn’t want to sell players on, make redundancies, or sell assets as they feared that these moves would put off potential buyers.
However, Lord Tyre rejected the claims.
He said the evidence available showed that by not selling on players or making redundancies, they had failed in their duties as administrators to minimise costs and maximise revenues.
He wrote that both Mr Whitehouse and Mr Clark could have sold on players to clubs outside the transfer window. The court heard such a measure was possible providing that clubs agreed that the moves weren’t completed until the transfer window opened.
He wrote: “I have already observed that I do not accept the respondents’ evidence that they considered and rejected a strategy of player sales because they wished to keep the squad intact for prospective purchasers.
“It is in my view much more likely that they did not fully investigate player sales because they proceeded on the assumption that none could take place except to clubs playing in countries whose transfer window was open, but which were not markets in which Rangers players would usually be sold.
“The evidence..demonstrates that sales outside the transfer window, although uncommon, are not prohibited, provided that both clubs and the player are content with a situation in which the player remains unregistered with the purchasing club until the opening of the next window.”
Lord Tyre also wrote that the administrators should have accepted a £1.7 million bid made in April 2012 from West Bromwich Albion for Steven Naismith.
The court heard that the administrators refused the bid on the basis that Naismith had a £2 million buy out clause in his contract and that the bid was too low to activate it.
But Lord Tyre concluded that Mr Whitehouse and Mr Clark acted incorrectly.
Making reference to calculations made by Duff & Phelps employee Simon Shipperlee about the impact of accepting the bid, Lord Tyre wrote: “In my opinion the respondents were in breach of duty in failing to decide to accept the final offer of £1.7million made on 13April.
“As Mr Shipperlee calculated at the time, the offer to relieve the company of Mr Naismith’s wage bill meant that the offer was worth about £1.85 million, as compared to the figure of £2 million in the buy out clause which in practical terms was the highest amount for which the company could have sold the player.”
Lord Tyre wrote that the administrators should have done more to consider selling on Murray Park and selling Ibrox to lease it back.
He wrote that these moves could have also helped the club’s financial position. This was because the bids being made for the club wouldn’t have allowed it to meet its financial obligations.
Lord Tyre wrote: “It ought, in my view, to have been apparent to the respondents at least from the time when indicative bids of around £10 million were being received, that there was a likelihood that a sale of the entirety of the business as a going concern would not maximise the return for creditors.
“Exploration of other options would have lengthened the period of the administration, with cost implications, but in the predicament in which the respondents found themselves, it seems to me that it was something that had to be done, and that the respondents were in breach of their duty in failing to do so.”
In the judgement, Lord Tyre broke down the ££3,404,500 on the following basis – £977,500 for failing to sell on ‘marketable’ players, £827,000 for failing to sell on Steven Naismith, £750,000 for failing to consider the ‘lease and sale’ of Ibrox, and £850,000 for the ‘loss of chance’ of selling on Murray Park.
Lord Tyre concluded: I hold that the noters are entitled.. to an order that the respondents contribute the following sum to the company’s property by way of compensation for breach of duty.”
ends.

Cosy Corner Bhoy congratulations and all the very best to you and your good lady.hh

Surely, one of the main creditors can ask why they weren’t sold and ask for an investigation into the reasons? por cierto

Hun administration

They tried to sign the apparently out of contract D Cousin the day after they went into administration, arguing that it would make them a more attractive proposition to asset buyers.

I recall Dundee FC appointing administrators at 9am on a Friday and half the staff were dismissed that lunchtime.

The Huns went into administration and tried to spend even more money.

Normal rules do not and never will apply.

Much of the judgement seems to revolve around this particular part of the finding.
+++
“He wrote that both Mr Whitehouse and Mr Clark could have sold on players to clubs outside the transfer window. The court heard such a measure was possible providing that clubs agreed that the moves weren’t completed until the transfer window opened.”
+++
Personally,I find it difficult to comprehend that a court could blame someone for being unable to sell someone four months down the line when that potential buyer can get them for nothing immediately.

Expect an appeal on this.

However in the melee, I’m now in the Rangers area !!!!

Had to keep my mouth shut and the Huns won 3-0.

Mahe – I’m thinking the riot with supporters acting as joint force, was at 1909 Cup Final. They burned down the turnstiles… hope all those wee guys managed to escape. It’s probably an article in itself for someone to research.

Leggy – Dom Sullivan recall wanting us to sign him .. then we did … was in that enclosure a few times ( aye including the 2-4 and ‘walk – on’ ) do you remember the Duncan Ferguson game, a ‘reserve’ tie with nearly 30,000 – in the ‘enclosure’ for another enjoyable GIRUY session.

Ah, Dom Sullivan,

A tale I heard years ago, hope it’s not true as I quite liked him 😁

Apparently, he played Junior with St Roch’s and, one game they only had 11 players available, so, Dom was made a substitute in case anyone got injured….

Thanks for the article. Always enjoyable though not much that I remember today.
Bada,
Thanks for the link about the Huns admin. Every rule in the book has been bent, broken or ignored right from the moment Craig Whyte was allowed to appoint his own administrators and has continued ever since. It is a stain on our country the way our establishment disregard rules and laws to aid and abet this organisation. The more things change, the more they stay the same.

This is a bit from Bada Bings post

Hi folks,

I need a bit of help here please. Since some illnesses a few years back mobility wise I’ve been drinking in the nearest pub which is predominantly a hun shop. Anyway, one of them brought up the Celtic Boys Club latest news, i would’ve said up to very recently i would’ve called him a friend, mistake and a half.

For reasons of anonymity, I’ve changed his name to wee orange prick although those you of Italian heritage I share your pain for those initials but it’s the most appropriate description.
It’s been really niggling me and I’m seriously fed up with them and their bullshit media led diversions etc. So I vaguely remember years back on CQN there were rumours about Struth and an assistant? If anyone has any memory of this and if it’s factual I’d appreciate a heads up so i can get the wee shit and his twisted wee brain cell, thank you

Did Frank Munro make the dreaded list ?

Always felt sorry for the bhoys that got a mention – Finbar didn’t take many prisoners in those days.

One line from the same lads …

“The Celtic defence is full of holes,
It often loses lots of goals;
When you stop and make a tally,
Most are caused by Mark McNally ”

Ergo – poor Mark was probably on the list ?

Good advice and thanks for a great leader today. I think I need a break from there Saltires their mental contortions excusing them for everything and anything used to make laugh but no more. I’m beginning to despise them like the Tories and I don’t want to feel that way. I’m taking your advice thanks

Craig76,

Cheers you and Saltires are spot on, been on the red biddy and I’ve blown it out proportion although why they can use abuse as a weapon has always been beyond me, maybe no enough red biddy
