The headline included the words “Rangers” and “dying” therefore my interest was immediately piqued.
Sadly, it was just Mr Graeme Souness EBT indulging in some liquidation denial.
“So everyone who rejoiced at Rangers’ problems, I hope they’ve had a rethink and they now see the consequences of that.”
Dear Mr Souness, if I can address you directly, Rangers FC self-destructed.
They died in 2012.
I can recommend a book on the subject.
In fact, it’s the only book on the subject and that it is available on all good books shops is down to the fact that I have a brave publisher.
When others caved he faced down the klan.
So Mr Souness Rangers FC (Est. 1872) are dead.
The club that you managed in the 1980s is no more.
It was ceased to be.
It isn’t even pining for the Fjords or even temporarily fucked.
Now Sevco, on the other hand, are very much alive, but not in the best of health.
It would appear that Pedro’s excellent preparations for the Kilmarnock game worked a treat.
As reported here his bi-lingual pep talk earlier in the week prompted an angry delegation going to see the Serious Professional.
In the North East tonight the champions faced their stiffest domestic test in the form of a well-rested Aberdeen side hoping to capitalise on Celtic’s fatigue inducing schedule.
It was 3-0 and the scoreline could have been higher.
In the post-match interview, the Aberdeen boss Derek McInnes was honest in his assessment.
He said that his team had been given “a lesson” and had been “exposed” by Celtic.
He noted that his best player last season (Jonny Hayes) was a substitute for the champions.
The Dons’ boss also pointed out that his best player THIS season (Ryan Christie) couldn’t play tonight because he is loaned to them from Celtic.
It is now SIXTY-ONE games undefeated in domestic competitions for the Parkhead side.
Perhaps this is all too much for that nice Mr Souness.
Indeed, he might need a bit of comfort at this difficult time, something to cuddle.
Timmy Bear is a particularly thoughtful line from General Ashley.
I checked with a Shirebrook source today and apparently this line of merchandise is also included within the new buyback deal.
So either way, wee Timmy is heading to Ibrox.
Anyway, in a generation or so lots of Bears will have decanted to the Timmy camp.
It’s great over here!
