I don’t have any quotes, or smoking guns, or links to official documents, tape recordings, or any credentials whatsoever. All I have is a story, a story that you will hopefully agree has a ring to it. In a way, everything that has happened over the last 24 months is evidence. You are all familiar with the facts, so hopefully my story will help you process them.
Let me start by suggesting this story makes much more sense if you look at it from the perspective of Craig Whyte, before, during, and after RFC went into administration. Very little of that which follows is in the least bit controversial. Most of the key events and facts are already known and in the public domain. How those facts and events are explained here in my story might be a surprise to some but I think deep down inside everyone who reads it will appreciate its simplicity and wonder how they didn’t see through all this before.

Dozens of Rangers investors have been airbrushed from the club’s history which we all know is vitally important to the Ibrox fans. These were the doting parents that gave birth to the new Rangers last year and their dosh became the life-blood flowing through the infant’s previously blue body as it blinked for the first time in the light of day. Little did anyone think back then that Vampires would soon be perched on the dodgy stand roofs.
To deny the existence of the missing investors – a lot of whom prefer to be faceless right enough – is akin to the Rangers club telling the Bears that the Gallant Pioneers had never existed and had never formed The Rangers and like the records of their rowing club had disappeared without trace. So why are the Bears not revolting? A good question IMO.
And it’s not just shareholders that have been consigned to the dustbin of history but even club directors have begun to disappear into the ever increasing ‘black hole’ surrounding Ibrox as the inmates attempt to dig an escape tunnel as they aren’t as fleet of foot as Chuckles and want to slip away under cover of darkness.

Charles Green departed Ibrox not to the triumphal strains of Zadoc the Priest but to the more mournful tolling of the plague bell. Now the doors of the dead are about to be opened in a bid to cleanse and expose the shocking but hitherto hidden and mouldering secrets lurking in an empty warchest.
A key to unlocking many puzzling mysteries and ‘Bringing out the Deid’ into the cold light of day could be publication of the Annual Returns for both Sevco 5088 and Sevco Scotland both of which are well overdue and Companies House are duty bound to employ their sanitation hit squad asap.
I have dealt in detail with various issues concerning these companies as above but I feel it is worth going back to basics to try and understand the conflicting information distorted by smoke and mirrors. Hopefully others with statutory investigative powers will cut through the fog and set the record straight. In this piece, as previously, I will try to use official documents and recorded sources and keep speculation to a minimum although I have no doubt others will fill in the blanks. Continue reading
A desperate and long-running battle is being waged over control of Sevco 5088 Ltd which lies at the heart of the ‘WHO OWNS RANGERS’ riddle.
Attempts to send the company to an unmarked watery grave appear to have failed and the Registrar at Companies House has withdrawn documents from public scrutiny which attempted to remove two of the three directors controlling the company.
This story has enormous repercussions for the SFA and the future of Rangers; Ticketus; shareholders of Rangers International Football Club; a London court case next month; the BDO investigation into Rangers; the main players viz Charles Green, Craig Whyte and Aidan Earley.
Willy Wonka (which might not be his real name) offered us a comment on the last post which says it all about the present state of internecine squabbling at Ibrox.
A commenter on Paul McConville’s Blog gets a bit carried away
Referring to the return of Mr Irvine and Media House, he wrote:-
“Irvine … has been rehired by Mather and co to spread pro-board stories prior to the AGM/EGM/ whateverM.
He, like the rest of them will be out on his arse shortly.”
So the Board (made up of some of those who “saved” Rangers last year, and of others with significant investment made at or before the IPO) are castigated because they hire a PR expert to represent their interests. On the other hand we have the Rangers Rebels who, it appears, hardly have more shares in Rangers than me!
So, I thought it might be useful to give a quick guide to who is in and who is out at Rangers, and who has been in and out there too. Continue reading
