  1. Lol , he is just cheesed off because his team can't beat the worst Celtic team in 20 years and next season will be fighting it out with Hearts for 3rd spot.
  2. As Celtic fan I think Aberdeen have a great chance this year , better than last year. They showed a real passion on Saturday that was lacking from Celtic. Also Denayer and Van Dijk are gone and we are stuck with Boyata and Ambrose who are 2 complete duds. Still to see what the new Croatian lad is like but I can see us loosing a lot of goals this season. It is going to be a real tussle this year between Dons and Celtic.
  3. For your information Celtic REFUSED the same EBT deal as the one Rangers used because they knew it was wrong. Cast your memory back to when Mo Johnston signed for Rangers. He was asked why he went back on his word to join Celtic and his answer was David Murray is paying my tax. The cheating started way back then. Rangers got everything they deserved. They have shown no remorse and even tried to play the victim. They lived beyond their means for years with the false hope that they could buy or cheat their way to the champions league. Charles Green and Craig White are made out to be the bad guys but in reality David Murray is the biggest crook of them all and is to blame for Rangers ceasing to exist. The new club is rotten and corrupt to its very core and like so many others I am sick of the circus that is Newco FC. I hope it all goes tits up at the EGM and finally they might just go under. Scottish football is pretty poor at the moment but does NOT need them. It wasn't cheating or illegal and has been proven in court what, three times now? The only wrongdoing was some administrative things were carried our incorrectly, again as proven in court. Is it purely coincidental that so many Celtic employees were involved in investing in film companies to avoid paying tax? Let's not leap on the moral high ground. Virtually every huge corporation or high earner tries to avoid paying as much tax as possible, and uses whatever loopholes they can find to do so. Morally it's wrong, but its not illegal. i don't see any law's or rules in place regarding being immoral, especially not in football. Other clubs such as Arsenal and Chelsea were allowed to "settle" EBT disputes outwith court. Rangers weren't allowed such luxury, even when an offer to settle was made. Why not? Has it been in the public's interest for HMRC to waste so much money in pursuit of something which is continually deemed to to legal practice? The circus of the last few years will hopefully come to an end shortly. It's benefited nobody other than the crooks in the boardroom. Certainly hasn't been a great time being a fan or a player, that's for sure. Yes your right about David Murray, but not because of his use of EBT's, but the fact he pretending he was pouring his own money into the club when in actual fact it was the banks money. He majorly overspent on money he didn't have in all his business interest, which is why his empire has crashed totally now. I've no interest in the ugly side of Scottish football. I want to see my team healthy and competitive and competing with a healthy and competitive set of opponents within Scottish football, and one day see them again in the Champions League. It's alright to enjoy a rivalry with Celtic without it needing to be called sectarian or bigoted. The best season following Rangers, for me anyway, have been the ones where it's went down to the final day. 02/03, 04/05, 07/08 (even though Celtic won the league in the end) and then three in a row under Smiths second tenure. They were my favourite seasons because even though Rangers won in the end up, there was competition. Not this boring drivel that's served up just now when Celtic run away with the league every year because they are financially ahead of every other club. Look at the recent results posted by Celtic, Revenue down almost 1/3 this year! Peter Lawwell has stated that Celtic lose about £10m per year without Rangers in the league. There's no sponsor for the countries flagship competition. The TV deal is utterly pitiful. Clubs best players leave for buttons as our clubs can't compete on wages with even league 2 teams in England. Maybe in future if Hearts, Hibs and Aberdeen fans turned up every week instead of just for cup finals and semi finals, or when Rangers and Celtic come to visit there would be more competition and we would have 5 or 6 big clubs rather than 2. These clubs could have 25-30k every week, but most aren't interested unless there's a trophy up for grabs. Anybody who says these last 3 years have been good for Scottish football, or that Scottish football doesn't need Rangers, is either at it, or has a dislike for Rangers greater than their love for their own team. Rangers do not exist ! How many times do you people need to hear it lol. Scottish football does not need the new lot either. Just look at Aberdeen and Dundee UTD , both are playing attractive football and are DEBT FREE without Newco. Having said all that I would like to thank you for making me laugh......... to say it was all caused by an "administrative " error is priceless !!!!! See what I mean ....... no remorse. So Lord Nimmo Smith's findings are irrelevant? I assume that going by your criteria Celtic ceased to exist in 1994? Pacific Shelf?? I did not say it was caused by an administration error, if you would care to read correctly. I pointed out that an "administrative error" is all that Rangers were found guilty of in the EBT court trials. I don't know exactly what I should be showing remorse over. I had no role to play in anything that occurred, My involvement stretched as far as paying for tickets to watch football, the same as all supporters. And again I must stress that there was no cheating, as proven in court. Aberdeen are debt free because their "tax cheat" chairman (amongs others) bailed them out and swapped debts for equity, and a wealthy supporter made substantial investment. Dundee Uniteds debt was wiped by a group of supporters. So its not because Scottish Football is booming that these clubs have managed to wipe out their debts through normal revenue streams. If you think all is well and fine with Scottish football, keep kidding yourself on. I don't see the point in continuing this discussion with someone who simply will not admit to wrong doing and cheating. It's as simple as that. THEY GAINED UNFAIR ADVANTAGE BY "BENDING THE RULES" ( CHEATING ) They are getting everything they deserve and as I have already stated Scottish football WILL survive without them. Enjoy the two trophies you have won............. they may be the last. Keep telling yourself that they did nothing wrong and you might just believe it. Otherwise wake up and smell the coffee................ Scotland does not need you !
  4. You just could not make this shit up........... now a Pakistani ex cricket boss wants to buy Newco. He has been banned from cricket for life due to TAX problems !

  7. I think there is every chance Murray will win another grand slam maybe 2 at a push. It won't be the French but I can see no reason for not winning any of the others. One thing is certain though , he must sort his head out. He went into complete melt down on Sunday when he looked to be on top at the start of the third set.
  8. Ranger were beaten today by the worst Celtic team in 15 years . Their fans were a total disgrace with non stop sectarian bile. I truly hope they go under and then maybe Scottish football can move on. They ARE and always will be Scotland's shame. We do not need them , Aberdeen and Dundee UTD are debt free without them and Celtic are in the black too. Rangers are debt ridden due to years and years of bending rules and cheating their way to trophies. The sad fact is that a NEW club with only 2 trophies to their name are allowed to play under the same name , yet the knuckle dragging hordes in blue are too stupid to accept this. RANGERS DO NOT EXIST ........... FACT. Sadly the sectarian filth does.
  9. It's actually the first ever meeting of the 2 clubs.
  10. Like a spirit in the night.............
