Glasgow Rangers: Whyter than...er black?
So the SFA have suddenly decided that Craig Whyte is not a "fit and proper person to own a football club". Talk about shutting the stable door after the horse has bolted! Maybe, just maybe, somebody should have come up with this idea before the entire Glasgow sewage system hit the fan!
Mind you, if Whyte is not a fit and proper owner, what does that make the guy who owns Hearts?
How ironic. West Ham are run by porn merchants but that is fine. And before that we were owned by an Icelandic merchant banker who had served time - and that was alright too. And look at the guys who have used Portsmouth for money laundering! OK again apparently. And then there's the Birmingham owner! It's surely time for the governing bodies to apply the fit and proper criteria with more vigour.
Meanwhile, Rangers might not be able to complete their fixtures this season apparently. Surely this is scare mongering though, surely they are simply trying to frighten some well heeled Protestant Scot to part with his cash? Hang on, I've just seen where the problem lies!
Despite the ireful replies to my last Rangers blog, I wish the club no ill. In the 70s, when my passion for football blossomed, Celtic ruled the roost in Scotland and so I favoured Rangers as the underdog. I switched allegiance when I understood the sectarian issues but I certainly don't want a great club like Rangers to go to the wall. Surely, surely, they will find a Scot with arms as long as his pockets are deep before it is too late!
Mind you, the Royal Bank of Scotland went tits up, and now Scotland's biggest football club is in administration, and yet our Tartan Cousins think they can run a bloody country! It's beginning to look as if they couldn't organise a piss up in a distillery!
