I would like to offer my thanks to commenter COYBIG for picking up on another inaccuracy, though again surely inadvertent, in Mr Green’s latest ramblings.
For some unaccountable reason the mainstream media seem reluctant to point out inconsistencies or errors emanating from Ibrox. Maybe they are working on the basis that James Traynor and Charles Green are an irresistible force, or at least immovable objects.

It would appear from press reports that Charles Green is meeting Bear reps at Ibrox tonight presumably to ‘sell’ the idea. Press reports also suggest it’s virtually a done deal with Sports Direct owner Mike Ashley. Continue reading
