With all possible respect to Hamilton, who at one time invited your humble author to train with them, no-one really expected them to prevail when Pedro’s caravan rolled into town. Was it business as usual for the supremacists from the south side of Glasgow with their incessant sectarian soundtrack? The 4-1 scoreline suggests a comfortable evening but this flatters Rangers Lite. If Hamilton had been more clinical and Foderingham less agile, the Accies would have earned the accolades and a much needed point. Better teams will expose the weaknesses in the Lite defence.
Should one assume that all is well in Auchenhowie as Kenny Miller trains with the Under 20s? Square-Go informed Miller on Monday he had no problem with him then stuck the boot in on Thursday. He’s fallen out with Rossiter too.
Will Pedro be casting his foreign charges in an amateur production of Jesus Christ Superstar?
Far be it for me to be a spectre at the feast but my mole who provided the entire Lite first team five hours prior to the visit of Celtic; and apprised my readers of the schism between Miller and Caixinha prior to the SMSM having a sniff of it, has reverted to me with some disconcerting news.
Park Senior and Junior are not on speaking terms. The former is spitting blood at the money his son spent on the Mendes second-stringers. Park Senior has decided to let Graeme twist in the wind for being played as a fool by the silver-tongued agent.
If truth be told Rangers Lite are currently trading whilst insolvent.
I have many readers with an accountancy bent. They might point at Ibrox and opine that if push came to shove this asset could be converted into cash to cover the burgeoning debts. Allow me to disabuse them of this notion. When Charles Green bought the stadium in a job lot in 2012 the quantum that changed hands was not sufficient to pay Chick Young’s lap-dancing tab.
Rangers Lite are technically insolvent.
The odious Andrew Dickson is fully aware of their plight but won’t be sharing his news with the bare-nippled brigade at Hampden. MD Robertson is keeping shtum at the SPFL. There is a poker game going on between the career criminal and Douglas Park.
King thinks Park Senior is bluffing and will step in to the fiduciary breach. Park is not buying King’s assertion that his money cannot be moved out of South Africa. Park Senior has been informed that squirrel-nutkin King has spirited away a significant quantum in Hong Kong and is playing ‘silly buggers.‘
Of course King’s reluctance to part with his ill-gotten gains is understandable. There’s a cold wind blowing his way. His tenure as the chairman of RIFC plc is as insecure as Caixinha’s coat-peg.
The deck seems to be stacked against Lite. Who will blink first? What happens if no-one blinks?
