My blog readers, contributors and commenters are on top form.
Further to my post about reports from Greece that Rangers have signed Greek international Pantelis Kafes, Marsyas pointed out that this might be the outcome of Mr Green’s trip to Greece.
He went off to organise a match to raise money … and came back having spent money signing a player!
Maybe he mixed up the saying about being wary of Greeks bearing gifts!
I wonder if Mr McCoist has ever heard of Mr Kafes.
“Rangers fans have been able to buy more tickets for Sunday’s game against Brechin City despite a continued delay in the new club receiving Scottish Football Association membership.”
As Ecojon pointed out, the foot of the article states, quoting the Rangers official Twitter feed:-
“A very limited number of tickets for Sunday’s scheduled match against Brechin have become available at the ticket centre.
These are available to buy this morning from 10am on a first-come, first-served basis to season ticket-holders.”
However, are there any Rangers season ticket holders?
“We hope to provide further details on the timing of season ticket renewal distribution and payment methods later in the week once the position becomes clearer.”
One wonders how many people were eligible to rush over to the ticket office today to buy these extra tickets.
Mind you, if someone has already bought a season ticket, they must have the loyalty or optimism to believe that Sunday’s game will go ahead as well.
And finally (whilst I check to see if any announcement has come from Hampden yet) STV is reporting that Rangers have held talks with Kevin Kyle, and that Graham Stack, the ex Hibs goalkeeper is hopeful of signing with the Ibrox team too.
Does it seem strange that the busiest team in the signing market in Scotland is the one team which, as matters stand right now, cannot play football?
