Concomitant desperation in the Blue Room

I spoke with a well-placed source this morning and he confirmed what I had heard two days ago about the Sevco managerial vacancy.

I would not be reporting this if this second individual had not offered up this information.

Moreover, he did so without any prompting from me.

We were discussing something entirely different when he brought it up in conversation.

So here it is:

It is his understanding, and he is in a position to know, that the Sevco high command has again reached out to Derek McInnes.

We both agreed that there is a concomitant risk in trying to hire someone who had previously spurned you.

Especially if you had reacted to that rejection by publicly trashing his suitability for the job!

The Alex Neil faction in the Blue Room hasn’t gone away you know.

It is worth pointing out that there is a significant overlap when it comes to those who consider the Aberdeen guy and the Preston boss as potential candidates for the Ibrox hot seat.

My sources this morning was of the opinion that Derek McInnes and his representatives had not changed their mind on the desirability of job that as offered to him earlier this year.

Off field, Sevco is even more of a slow-moving insolvency event than it was when Mcinnes rebuffed Sevco’s dignified offer.

The need to go to Close Brothers is clear public data that there is a cash crisis at Ibrox.

Then the fact that the financial institution required a SECOND security document should scream out that they believe that there is a strong chance of default.

It would be foolish to think that Mr King cannot produce another conjuring trick that enthuses The People to renew in large numbers.

Even if that does happen the hole in the finances remains extant.

Meanwhile, across the Clyde, there is a genuinely big club who are setting their own standards.

That was evident yesterday, yet the Stenography Corp remain trapped in the “Old Firm” paradigm six years after Rangers died.

For the avoidance of doubt, the future does not belong to the customer base of Espanyol Glasgow.

Just sayin…

  1. Looking at how Aberdeen have laid down to the new club this season, the job was his before Christmas! There has never been a shadow of a doubt in my mind that this has been finalized months ago with Aberdeen handing the new guys second place.

  2. Well. I listened to a newco podcast the other day (you get some right funny stuff on them) and the guys on it were saying that newco should go after mcinnes again as he may have had second thoughts on turning them down last time so nothing would surprise me.

    The logic behind it was that he would get more money to spend on top players than he could dream of at Aberdeen.

    I did say you get some funny stuff on their podcasts 😂😂😂😂

  3. I know their players are gash anyway but it’s the board and individual directors off-field activities that have me shaking my head in disbelief.

    Are these guys really successful businessmen? ….How?

    The phrase” Couldnae Organise A Piss Up In A Brewery” sums them up perfectly.

    This is the business acumen equivalent of Pedro’s Progres result ….times ten!

    If you’d asked me as a Celtic supporter 6 years ago to design a cluster-fuck that has their club stumbling from one disaster after another and leaves them on the brink of liquidation I couldn’t have designed it better than their own board have led them into over these years.

    Why are their fans not marching up to their front door and demanding their removal? They done worse to Whyte for a lot less!

    I’m not complaining by the way , just enjoying the chickens finally coming home to roost!

  4. I’m not least surprised. Without any inside sources, or even any sources at all, I joked that after Aberdeen had collapsed yet again, this time to Motherwell, “That will be Sevco in for McInnes again.”

    I hope so.

    And that Aberdeen does the smart thing and goes after Clarke.

  5. Was just listening to “Rangers” radio on YouTube. Talk about deluded. Talking about spending big money on a manager. Making a point of the fact Sevco are not in financial difficulties. Saying they probably should have taken the 10/11 million form China! They are beyond stupid.
    Something else I was told yesterday was that the reason Sevco have the red strip around the top of their socks was a secret homage to being up to their knees in fenion blood!

    1. Correct PJ ! Rumours at the time had Ameruso stripped of captaincy because he refused to join in the communal dressing room singing of this song. I do remember that from then on the big Italian always played in all black socks !

  6. FACT:An ex-rangers player,who plays for Kilmarnock (for the 2nd time!)
    Has let it be known S Clarke will be next manager at ibrox.

  7. Good idea to go back in for McIness.

    A manager plying his trade in the top flight who has been unable to better Brendan Rodgers in the last 2 seasons.

    Sounds like a plan to me.
