So, he has finally gone!
The BBC is reporting that Sandy Easdale, brother of Rangers Director James Easdale, has agreed to exercise his option to buy Mr Green’s shares, and therefore become, as he says, the largest shareholder in Rangers.
“Between my family holdings and through other supporting investors I now have the largest shareholding in Rangers Football Club,” he said.
“There has been continued speculation and constant enquiries to buy this largest holding in Rangers. But Mr Green gave me the first option which I exercised.” Continue reading
I wrote last night about the sad end (or is it) to the relationship between Mr Green and Rangers.
But, as regular readers know, I delight in finding nit-picking inconsistencies which might (but probably don’t) signify something bigger.
Ladies and gentlemen, can I offer you the Rangers website statement and the Rangers Stock Market announcement regarding Mr Green’s departure? Continue reading
Most readers of the blog will have seen a horror film where the evil monster/zombie (by the way that is not, nor should be taken as, any reference to a “Sevconian”) is killed off but, to then shock of the audience, reappears from the dead.

Mr Ahmad is now, according to many press reports and to some detailed posts on the blog of my good friend (though we have never met) Bill McMurdo, proceeding with a claim against Rangers for £3.4 million of damages for his departure in April. Continue reading
My excellent private investigators, Charley Farley and Piggy Malone, have found a secret document which is the blueprint for a unique brainwashing process. It plots the stages through which Rangers fans are being driven in relation to their team.
Farley and Malone, Private Investigators
But it can be revealed that, rather than be the result of blind faith repeatedly betrayed, it is in fact a carefully orchestrated plan to force the faithful through every emotion possible conducted by broadcasts of subliminal messages.
I am sure it is coincidental that two shadowy figures, one known only as “the Law-well Man” and the other as “The Archbishop” were seen together in a building with a high spire from which the mind-bending messages are beamed. Continue reading
