We Deserve Justice

While I firmly believe that Rangers are on the right footing, and nearing the kind of standard we should be at, the news breaking last night over HMRC “over estimating” has opened old wounds for many Rangers supporters.

Both Rangers fans, and investors both in the Oldco operating company and the new one, have every right to feel aggrieved at actions taken by HMRC during the timeframe it was on the warpath with our club.

First off, it still rankles with me that David Murray took the course of action he did in taking up the EBT options that ultimately placed our club in the sights of those who needed no excuse to try to damage us.

A comparison of 2 clubs, punishments received from the footballing authorities and treatment from other member clubs for their crimes.

Before reading any further, please accept my apologies for the length of this article, though after reading it in its entirety I’m sure you will agree that all relevant information had to be presented to clearly demonstrate the vast gulf in treatment afforded both clubs in relation to crimes at either end of any moral spectrum.

VB writer 1972 (real name Jack Harrington) has published his first book, describing in detail the sordid history of Celtic Football Club, from its inception as an agent of the Roman Catholic church to keep Irish Catholics away from Protestant Soup Kitchens, to it becoming a front for Irish Republicanism in the west of Scotland, to it becoming a home for football’s most notorious paedophile ring. The first fully independently written view of the world’s most hated football club is a must read.

Troubled Tom

It’s easy to laugh at Tom Boyd’s paranoid ramblings on Celtic TV about referee John Beaton, as it may well be that he is traumatised by memories of Brian Laudrup zipping past him at such speed he ended up cross eyed. While it’s amusing to see bears mock him on Twitter with memes and pictures of Laudrup, it’s perhaps worth addressing this recurring paranoia amongst what is increasingly a mainstream Celtic supporters’ view.
