Photographs you were not meant to see.

These are the photographs that powerful people didn’t want you to see.They were snapped this morning outside Ibrox stadium by a freelance photographer that I had tipped off.

I then contacted two people in Glasgow who move in the  appropriate legal circles and  I showed them these photographs.

They both immediately identified these men as Sheriff Officers.

One of them even pointed to the fact that the blue plastic folder held by one of them was of the type typically used to carry official documents and that he had seen its kind many times before.

Yesterday the  club was totally denying that there was any truth in the story that Sheriff officers,instructed by HMRC about unpaid taxes,  would be coming to the ground the following morning .

A major daily newspaper was advised by the club  that there was nothing in the story and not to bother.

The  visit is now reported as being “routine” and the  that the club is “calm” about the situation.

Anyway a great deal of effort was expended yesterday so that these pictures would not be taken and you would not see them.

In the PR trade this is called “fire fighting.”

Everybody calm?

Good.
