When boasting can be expensive

I understand that the Serious Professional was being heartily congratulated yesterday by several members of the Sevco High Command.

Rather than gratefully accepting the backslapping and glad-handing he had a sobering response.

His view was that, yes, the Q&A with the Club 1872 folk had gone well.

However, it was merely an exercise in kicking the can down the road and that the Blue Room chaps still had serious issues to confront.

I believe that one of those issues will be an old problem re-emerging.

My understanding is that the Wi-Fi chap is looking closely at the unfolding situation regarding the Ibrox Three.

If the Admirable Warburton and his colleagues are in court seeking recompense from the Holding Company Vehicle, then I expect the internet fellow to follow them rather quickly.

With regard to the Ibrox Three, my information is that the Sevco High Command has made them an offer.

It is to pay them their salary, but over an extended period.

My information is that the extended timescale would be to add two years onto the length of the contracts.

This, in effect, is the Sevco High Command asking the Ibrox Three for a termed loan.

I hear that one chap within the Sevco High Command is unhappy with the high-Level coverage regarding Pedro Caixinha.

The reasoning from this Blue Room chap is that if they can publicly say that they can pay out compensation to his club Al-Gharafa in Qatar, then that might cause problems.

The issue would be this could be used in any proceedings brought by the Ibrox Three.

I can see the point when the Holding Company Vehicle is asking the Ibrox Three to take their money over a considerably longer period.

Being vainglorious about being able to pay money to Pedro’s club might not be the best idea.

It is worth remembering that  Mr David Cunnigham King’s tax issues in South Africa all started with him publicly boasting about his expensive art collection.

In other news, today Celtic progressed to the semi-finals of the Scottish Cup.

Honest Mistakes were not required, just grit and guile.
