I was at a close friend’s stag do in Newcastle over the weekend. Beer, food, racing, karaoke and a bunch of mates I’d not seen for a while – it was magic! And with an Old Firm semi-final on the Sunday afternoon, I was even fairly excited to get back up the road. Unfortunately, an unforeseen two hour delay on the train meant I was going to miss a good portion of the first half. But even a patchy 4G service on the run into Waverley had my good mood evaporating as Rangers got off to an awful start in the game.
On Sunday Rangers will play one of their most important games of the season. We travel to Hampden park for the Scottish Cup Semi-Final against our old rivals Celtic. With the league virtually out of our reach, the season could only really be called a success if we could lift the Scottish cup.
Earlier this week Club1872 responded to some skulduggery from an MSP and a Sun journalist. Clarification was asked for on both spurious stories, with prompt reaction to the latter story (which was retracted), and Club1872 then informed its members of these actions. As a member of Club1872 this is exactly what I want to see from them. It was a fair request, it was handled quickly and professionally and was communicated in a similar fashion. Not much wrong with that, in fact it was a more than decent response in the face of the gutter level behaviour that precipitated it.
Unless you've been stuck on the moon over the last few days, you won't have failed to note another EBT hullabaloo has formed after leaked communications between Celtic and the SFA. To cut to the chase and avoid you falling asleep, Celtic, aided and abetted by the SPFL it seems, are demanding (another) independent investigation into governance of Scottish football in and around the period Rangers utilised certain tax schemes - recently declared ineffective by the Supreme Court. In other words, although their cheerleaders in the media will deny it, they want further punishment for Rangers, most probably in the form of honour stripping. Indeed, it's this cheer-leading that is of primary interest to yours truly.
