A cautionary tale?

It might have been a strange experience for Mr David Cunningham King to be on a live link to Glasgow recently.

He probably prefers to be there in person.

However, it is much cheaper than flying First Class to London from Johannesburg for meetings of the board of Rangers International Football Club (RIFC).

I am told that he was watching a presentation by the current CEO of RIFC Mr Stewart Robertson.

Well-placed sources inform me that Mr John Gilligan and Mr Paul Murray were also in attendance.

I doubt that it made for pleasant viewing for the RIFC Chairman in South Africa.

Sources inform me that the ex-Motherwell chap laid it out that the time for tough decisions was soon approaching.

He posited that, after October 20th, the Murray Park training ground would require external finance if it was to continue in operation.

Of course, there is no reason that such additional funding could not appear.

However, according to the current CEO it is required.

I am also informed that it was the opinion of some chaps around the table that they would be throwing good money after bad to challenge Charles Green over his legal costs.

Although that is one for the lawyers what is not in dispute is at RIFC remains a loss making business without a credit line from a bank.

At some point, those words might have some significance for The People.

Some time after this presentation Mr Gilligan and Mr Murray met with the fans.

No doubt the message was upbeat and positive, and I’m sure it will all work out for the best.

There are so many Real Rangers Men of considerable personal wealth that all of this financial stuff should not prove to be an insurmountable problem.

Of course, Mr David Cunningham King himself can commence the serious business of ‘Over-Investing’ any day now.

I, for one, do not doubt that he is able and willing to do just that given his vast personal wealth and his deep love of the Ibrox club.

Of course, there is an alternative scenario.

Quite simply, this could turn out to be a cautionary tale of down at heel princelings trying to placate a raggedy arsed mob.

If that is indeed the case, then that would be just too upsetting for the rest of Planet Fitba
