All Aboard The Rangers Circus

Written by: 1972
Wednesday, 7th June 2017

Once again, the Rangers circus has rolled in to town, and while the football side of the business appears to be promising (more of that later), the Craig Whyte saga has exploded, with him being found Not Guilty of the fraud charges brought before him.

It would appear that the case failed not because Craig Whyte didn't use Ticketus money secured against Season Ticket income to fund his takeover but because the fraud charges were shambolic.

As Whyte's QC, Donald Findlay's defence was that in the transaction itself David Murray was not a victim of fraud, and essentially it was this argument that settled the case

Ultimately, while Rangers fans are angry at Whyte and his cronies, Murray, and Lloyds bank for an arrangement that benefited these parties, and set the business on the road to Administration, the real issue here is that corporate law across the UK is not fit for purpose.

Independence Transcends

'The case for full self-government ultimately transcends the issues of Brexit, of oil, of national wealth and balance sheets and of passing political fads and trends'  (Nicola Sturgeon)

I very much doubt the late Stephen Maxwell, one of the SNP's favoured think tank members in the 1980's would agree with Ms Sturgeon. In 1981 Mr Maxwell urged the party to abandon romantic notions of nationhood and embark on an unsentimental appeal to the social and economic interests of the Scottish people.

So why the change?

The answer is simple - the economic and social interest arguments proposed by the Scottish National Party over the last few years are absolutely in tatters, shredded beyond repair or recovery by both political opponents and political commentators over a course of several years. Furthermore, the SNP propaganda machine, once so well oiled, has shown that even the greatest propaganda machine cannot function effectively in the face of incompetent government.

Truth And Justice - Police Scotland Must Leave No Stone Unturned

In 1996, a supremely talented 15 year-old Celtic youth player was brutally murdered in his own home by serial paedophile Brian Beattie, who battered him to death then set fire to his body. Beattie was subsequently sentenced to life imprisonment for his appalling crime.

During the investigation, which was clouded by accusations of police corruption, former Celtic coach and kit-man Jim McCafferty was one of the suspects. McCafferty had been a regular visitor to the young players’ home and had phoned him on the day of the grotesque murder. That same year, McCafferty suddenly left his Celtic employ for what an unnamed club spokesman described as ‘personal reasons’. It was subsequently revealed that those ‘personal reasons’ were allegations of sexual impropriety towards young boys. Once again, as with an earlier case of paedophilia uncovered at Celtic FC, serious questions have been asked as to why those running the club declined to call the police when the allegations surfaced.

Do Not Fund The Scottish Press

It's been fairly obvious for a long time that Scottish Football is absolutely barking, and the last week has proven this beyond all doubt.

Over the last few weeks, Craig Whyte has appeared in court accused of fraud regarding his takeover of Rangers in 2011, defended by former Vice Chairman (and friend of David Murray) Donald Findlay QC, receiving extensive coverage in the media salivating over the exchanges in court, while ignoring the arrest of Frank Cairney on fresh allegations of sex abuse of children while at Celtic Boys club.

The front page of the Daily Record on April 27th tells you all you need to know about where the media in modern day Scotland believe their priorities lie. The front page lead is not the growing evidence of what appears to be a decades long paedophile ring operating at Celtic Boys Club, but court exchanges on financial matters about a business entity that used to own Rangers FC.

"As so often happens with Washington scandals, it isn't the original scandal that gets people in the most trouble - it's the attempted cover-up."

- Tom Petri OBE.

"I had been investigating rumours about Celtic Boys Club for years, as had other journalists, but we were faced with denial after denial from the club"

- Anna Smith, the journalist who broke the story of convicted Celtic paedophile James Torbett.


Last week saw yet another Celtic Boys Club official accused of sexual crimes against children. Gerry King, former Chairman and coach with the youth set-up was charged by Police Scotland, the FIFTH Celtic coach to face court in relation to paedophilia. At the same time it was revealed that convicted Celtic paedophile James Torbett faces new allegations that he sexually molested yet another young player.

Four months ago it was suggested that there could have been a paedophile ring operating at Celtic. Latest developments do nothing to dampen those suspicions.
