Lashing out for special treatment

I see that those fine fellows in Club 1872 have embarked upon a charm offensive with Glasgow City Council.

You can read their statement here.

This lashing out at anyone outside of the subculture was a feature of the death of the original Rangers.

Your humble correspondent was a target of this Pavlovian response in 2010 and 2011 when I reported that a financial tsunami was en route to Ibrox.

The default setting of the klan was to snarl and smear and they were convinced that I was wrong.

I wasn’t.

Having read the correspondence it would appear that due process was followed apropos the decision on the klanzone on public property.

Of course, that grates with their Herrenvolk sense of entitlement.

The desire for special treatment from the local state is buried deep within the cultural norms of the Ibrox klanbase.

Perhaps they would be better off if they were to ask about the wisdom of giving Mr Gareth McAuley a £25k per week contract.

I’m sure the 38-year-old free agent is delighted.

As will be Señor Alfredo José Morelos Aviléz with his new deal.

£30 k per week makes him the highest paid player at the basket of assets.

Therefore, within a week the Sevco High Command has added £1.68m to their operating costs for this season alone.

I smiled when I was informed that the Colombian striker has £10m buy-out clause in his contract.

That should fend off those pesky Chinese clubs…

While the Club 1872 are conducting what looks like a vendetta against several Glasgow City Councillors then they’re not looking at some very worrying numbers at Ibrox.

Sevco’s success in the Europa League undoubtedly brings in extra revenue.

However, it seems to be spent as quickly as it comes in.

For the avoidance of doubt, the Serious Professional is less than Zen-like about the campaign against the City Council.

That is probably why the same chap called an off-site meeting yesterday.

Overall it is very handy for the Sevco High Command that RIFC is not a listed company.

If it was then there would be some very concerning numbers for the market to peruse.

You may recall that during the Off Licence Putsch Mr David Cunningham King stated to the adoring stenographers that a NOMAD was ready and waiting.

He delivered this “fact” in a glib and shameless fashion.

Dear reader this is the sort of thing that the…ahem…journalist in Glasgow should be hunting down.

However, if they do then they will be subject to some high-Level discipline.

Woodward and Bernstein they are not…

Of course, it shouldn’t surprise anyone that the klan will ape Mr Allan McGregor when presented with facts that displease them.

Quite simply they lash out.

Moreover, they do so with impunity…
