I’m not ready to give up yet, but…
Here are just a few of the stories in Scottish football this week:
- Dunfermline Athletic F.C. were docked 15 points for going into administration and are now in a relegation battle to stay in the First Division.
- Charles Green, CEO of The Rangers F.C., referred to a former Rangers administrator as his “little Paki friend” and he doesn’t see anything wrong with that. Oops, sorry, he just apologized- sort of. Not for what he said, but if anyone has been offended by them.
- Green has also been trying to explain recent statements in which he said that Manchester United told him they would welcome Rangers in the EPL and that the Dallas Cowboys are looking to establish a partnership with the Ibrox side. Both Manchester United and the Cowboys have denied all of this. Seriously, folks, I’m not making this up.
- Former Rangers F.C. owner Craig Whyte is on the verge of going bankrupt.
- Today police in Scotland and England raided personal and business properties owned by Whyte in an investigation of his purchase of Rangers in 2011.
- On Monday the SPL clubs will vote on whether or not to adopt the 12-12-18 plan. If Ross County and St. Mirren hold firm in their opposition the plan will be dead. If they don’t… Well, the administrations of both clubs will have a lot to answer for with their supporters.
- Speaking of the 12-12-18 plan, even if it does get approved by the SPL clubs it still has to be approved by 23 of the 30 SFL clubs, and there’s one slight problem with that- the SPL still hasn’t provided the SFL clubs with financial details they need to make the decision! If it needs to be taken, the SFL vote will take place a week from Friday- that’s not a lot of study time!
- Hearts are cutting ticket prices by £5 for their first match in the “Bottom 6” in order to ensure that, you know, at least a few people show up at Tynecastle.
And I didn’t even mention the national team.
Seriously, why do I do this to myself?
