Anyone any updates on the investors and if they are investing I'm sure it was supposed to be the end of June for new investment?

sports direct got the rights to sell Castore strips i knew he was never away our board have lied yet again.

Agree10 Disagree0

01 Jul 2020 19:44:54
Hang fire would wait to see what the statement says not sure what the mean by exclusive! Can't see them making that big a fe£# up.

02 Jul 2020 08:49:39
Don’t understand this rhetoric. How could s.d. possibly have exclusive rights when we have practically sold out the first 50,000 in online sales to rangers store . A bit of mischief making methinks.

02 Jul 2020 10:47:13
Maybe they have distribution rights from the 1st. August. Who knows and that is the date stated.

02 Jul 2020 12:48:49
All a load of nonsense.
Can't believe how gullible some people are on here!
So Big Blue Bear, you believe SD have the exclusive rights to sell the tops from the 1st August?
So that means the revamped Rangers store at Ibrox, at a cost of £250,000 will be lying empty with no stock 🤔😂😂😂😂.

03 Jul 2020 08:27:20
It is common practice for suppliers to use this distribution route, it's all money into our coffers.

03 Jul 2020 18:58:20
Statement just released by castore regarding sports direct, albeit the story is in the sun.
Sports direct have no exclusive right to Rangers merchandise, but will be aloud to sell a limited amount licenced through Castore,
With rangers profiting from all it merchandise.

04 Jul 2020 00:42:50
Sports direct are a suplier they use as would nike or Adidas or any other good brand they have contracts with all big retailers they are trying to sell our strips and a up and coming brand like them would want to do a good job so they can get more teams in future.

Full story on 4Lads blogs who did the original interview.
Well worth a read. 👍.

Big blue bear 🤔really.

29 Jun 2020 16:18:29
Was reading an article on the 4th official site about rangers . Very interesting what they are saying. Looking like there two investors coming in with a lot of money to put in and a new share offer to be out out . There quite a lot of positives and dar too many too mention on here . But it looks good . Have look if you doubt me.

Agree0 Disagree0

30 Jun 2020 00:37:13
I've read it too and thought it was collaboration of molsgoals, john25, and DK17

Joke lads.

30 Jun 2020 12:38:20
Ha . he’s back . hi mull. you woke from your slumber to find we are still alive and kicking. Things have been looking good so I wasn’t surprised that you were in hibernation
I sincerely hope the optimism within the club makes you a tad happier. 👍.

30 Jun 2020 13:49:21
The most positive thing about the full article was that it wound the Tim's right up and left them frothing at the mouth!
Well written piece and 100% on the money. 👍.

30 Jun 2020 14:39:13
Ha . seems to have wound mull up as well.

30 Jun 2020 16:20:57
Lets wait and see whether all is as rosy as the picture it paints.

No doubt where the credit should go for getting us to where we are today (let's hear you say the name IOM and Billyb) but taking into account current uncertainty due to C.V. (C.V. was not caused by Dave King) we will be doing very well if we are successful in attracting big new investment.

Need to get my hearing aid tested as I can't here IOM or Billyb applauding our biggest shareholder!

Joke lads!

30 Jun 2020 16:32:16
The mahnks are the experts on anything Rangers Tupac it didn't suit their agenda. i'm happier about season ticket sales as high as they are while they've had to extend their date to sell them. I used to in part agree with mull on finance but I'm becoming excited about what's happening off the park as I've said before CV may be the financial leveler we needed.

30 Jun 2020 17:02:10
Are you sure DK19, that DK didn’t cause the lurgy? We better check with billy boy and mull . they might have inside info . they have on all other negs 😊.

01 Jul 2020 04:49:02
Glad to see Laurel and Hardy cracking the funnies in their virtual world.

01 Jul 2020 10:24:53
Just happy to be proved right billyb because if I had been wrong you might be happy but the club would still be in a rubbishstorm right now.

01 Jul 2020 11:27:00
Exactly DK.

01 Jul 2020 11:30:11
Ps doesn’t really matter if your Stan or Ollie DK
What matters is you are 100% on the money 👍😷.

01 Jul 2020 11:34:43
dk 19, you are like a dog with a bone, you surely have to prepare for going back to school, so leave the bone alone and get some homework done.

03 Jul 2020 16:41:18
Just a test to see if this is allowed on here. ed seems not to like incomers. You ghuys will not stop 10! You are so far behind Celtic in every department, it's unreal. AgentAsh isn't finished yet!

05 Jul 2020 12:34:34
No behind in season ticket sales my friend . have youse reached 25 k yet? No wonder your no buying foster.

08 Jul 2020 23:57:26
How would you feel about handing the tainted title (#.75) you were awarded back? Belgium leagues were lauded as the benchmark by the mhedia back in April and paved the way for the, ahem, rigged vote and subsequent haste to finish the season three quarters of the way through. Now the ruling arbritation body has ruled titles, promotion and relegation illegal and have null and voided the season, leaving the Scottish league as the only one in THE WORLD that has finished their leagues this way. Can only imagine the lurgan bigot and lego's bruised and twisted faces as they are made to hand thw tainted title back and drop down to 8 again (5 of which don't really count anyway as the biggest and best supported club was not even in the league at the time anyway. Answers on a postcard.

09 Jul 2020 00:39:42
Brilliant seeker . loving it.

06 Jun 2020 18:22:09
More worrying financial news and commercial forecasting from Stewart Robertson this week. Admin and Liquidation surely soon eh? Or John25 I will be on the G&Ts toasting 55. I know what my head and heart are saying.

Very, very poor effort at fishing buzz.

24 May 2020 05:53:36
Buzz bomb,
The Famous Glasgow Rangers, your first and last thought of the day.
Aye sevco administration, it's TRUE
And going to happen, because i dreamed it, what are you like. Haha haha.

24 May 2020 15:53:37
Persistence beats Resistance Leon. 👍😂😂
Keep the faith wee man. 👍
Now that Res 12 is dead in the water and you've wasted 8 years of your life on that, you need something to fill your time in your beloved Glasgow Rangers!
And as we all know there will be no stripping of titles (😜😂) it's back to pushing 8 years and counting of another Admin! 😂😂😂😂
Throw in the usual Celtic Da words like Sevco, 10IAR (? 😷👀) and you'll get the usual support from the Tims who obsessively follow the Famous on here! 👍😂😂😘.

06 Jun 2020 18:44:30
As the OP, I’m not FuddBomb. Intended tongue in cheek. It’s all good in my eyes.

08 Jun 2020 10:00:11
Ibrox4me. anyone with any sense reading your post would have known it was tongue in cheek. mr Tupacman and grumpy really need to chill.
Every post they make is so full of anger and hatred, sanity is a fine line I just worry as these guys seem close to the edge.
Remember it’s only banter don’t take it so seriously.

08 Jun 2020 10:22:06
It was intended light hearted. Being honest, Mr Grumpy regularly makes some great points as does TM. There’s a few posters across the pages who have nothing positive to say though. We are headed in a very positive direction. Already making signings ahead of main business and off the park looking good. Let’s stick together and be the best, united support we can be. Onwards to 55.

08 Jun 2020 11:26:26
👍 Stevie can do it . I believe.
circumstances derailed us last year that’s all .

08 Jun 2020 20:37:55
What about the 20m from europe we made! don't talk pish mate!

08 Jun 2020 23:09:05
Read. 🙄😄

We are in tremendous shape and getting stronger. This was a dig to all the negative nay sayers. och, never mind.

09 Jun 2020 01:56:09
Ibrox4me 😂 👍.

09 Jun 2020 10:24:46
Ibrox 4 I got your post mate.

09 Jun 2020 23:19:06
me too, love sarcasm but some people just don't get it.

10 Jun 2020 16:18:28
I think it's you that needs to chill Bluebrother. 👍
Check the date of my reply and check the date of Ibrox4me's post. Now unless I've got a time machine?
There's obviously been an error as my reply was to Leon, who's original post has disappeared. 👍😂😂😂.

15 Jun 2020 12:53:44
Tupacman is correct, I was responding to some havers from buzzbomb. 😉.

15 Jun 2020 13:06:26
Lovely little rant from blue brother though😉
Doing pretty much what he's accusing tupacman and myself of doing! 🤔.

17 May 2020 14:19:39
Isle of Mull, this new deal with Castore could be a disaster eh? No mention of how much we're getting up front or per unit. And with new commercial deals and investors standing by, and the board improving from a corporate governance improving, its not looking good. Can you add any more to this so we can all come back down to earth?

Agree3 Disagree0

17 May 2020 14:32:16
Yes I agree with most of it but what does this mean mate

and the board improving from a corporate governance improving,

17 May 2020 15:03:26
Meaning that corporate governance is improving. The work commercially by JB and his expanded team, looking at an increased digital and online footprint and global distribution networks in over 60 countries. The fact that this has been approved by board, due diligence has been completed, and long term planning being implemented. The additional ‘improving’ is a typo. Also with the increasingly accurate 4LadsHadADream receiving the official Castore video direct and reporting a £25m deal, that seems good, but surely it can’t be. Just thought you’d know as you’ve been spot on with everything else.

17 May 2020 17:03:33
Copied this from a post from bellshillad ( hope you don’t mind my friend ) mainly it’s for mull to read incase he missed . as he spends most of his time worrying himself into a bad place about our finances . Hopefully this might help you get a decent nights sleep mull 👍

As for we have no money that couldn't be further from the truth we are in a good financial place all things considered. We own 100% of all assets, we have no debt, we have a new kit deal worth a decent amount, we have had good early ST sales so far not the level of last season but above the virus expectations. We have a planned internal share issue which from what I hear we could double the amount of shares offered and still have waiting list and finally there is a new investor in place just waiting for all the virus stuff to calm down do that can be completed. Look for us to start bringing in younger players with big potential with view to buy cheap and early develop and sell at decent profits. I reckon we are doing better than most.

17 May 2020 20:34:39
Molsgoals, I do hope this all works out with Castore. Remember just 4 short months ago SGL had us getting new balance, under armour, Mr Bisgrove flying to America on several occasions for talks with these multi national companies.

Even a guy in the know like yourself could never have heard of castore. Surely you remember 3 short months ago we were advertising for a kit manufacturer/ retail partnership. Do hope it works out but if anybody thinks this was in the long term planning think again.

17 May 2020 22:25:35
These things can move quickly. Bisgrove is an accomplished operator and I’m very impressed with what I’m seeing so far. Let’s go mad and be a wee bit pleased for once. I’m up for that.

18 May 2020 00:01:57
I am certainly not in the know under any circumstances mull but even if this was not long term planning dies that really matter?
Also heard we are spending 250k on shop at Ibrox . It’s all good me thinks .
You had us sunk three times over last year mull, from Dave king getting the jail to Ashley ( thru the courts ) taking every penny and asset we have .
None of that looks like it’s happening mull so rest easy . You can stop worrying for a few weeks at least.

18 May 2020 07:22:12
Iom because u have not heard of Castore does not mean many others have not. I have several of their golf tops.

18 May 2020 07:23:53
Molsgoals mull must be a Mecca for getting rangers financial info
This is a rumour site so sgl guesses re strips is how it is.

19 May 2020 11:49:06
Yes I agree it's a rumour site. John let's be honest here, why did JB fly to America to meet with new balance, Nike, under armour on several occasions according to SGL then come back here and advertised on social media for a kit manufacturer/ retail partnership? .

M/ G do you think this is the last we will hear of Ashley? Remember john25 posted lots of court documents on here about us taking SD to court. What about the monies owed by Hummel more court proceedings?

Finally if we were in such a good state financially why offer our supporters a £25 voucher instead of a full refund like partick and Hamilton?

19 May 2020 12:04:52
Wow mull you really do try hard.

19 May 2020 12:37:44
Mull, it’s the terms and conditions of the season ticket so we were never entitled to a refund. If you paid more attention to supporting you’d have known that.

What started as some light hearted banter has actually confirmed that you have some sort of manic depressive state about all things Rangers. Never a post anywhere else on the pages about anything positive and never a positive, upbeat to say. You’ve become a broken record with all doom and gloom. And before you hit out with the heads in the sand, it’s not, it’s just as most see it. crack a light. You seem gutted with any bit of good news or opportunity. Every silver lining has a cloud and all that.

As for SGL reporting what James Bisgrove is doing, that is also fantasy but at least it’s cheerful.

Please cheer up and maybe come along to a game sometime.

19 May 2020 13:16:46
Spot on Ibrox . I dread to think what it would be like if there was bad news imminent lol.

19 May 2020 14:36:04
Not meaning to be unpleasant and we don’t need to always agree but we’re all supposed to be Rangers fans. Not everything is doom and gloom so let’s try and reflect that.

19 May 2020 14:37:19
Ibrox4me u need to remember iom admits he is a fan and not a supporter of the Gers
He obviously takes everything SGL says as gospel.

He does not really understand in corporate business u do advertise for expression of interest in services you want.
Ie strip manufacturer.

19 May 2020 18:45:15
Spot on John. This is close to what I do for a living and you’re right on the money. Maybe he/ she will buy a Castore Keyring and get it posted to Mull and do their bit 😜.

19 May 2020 19:46:55
Q1 John did man utd, Liverpool, and the likes advertised for a kit manufacturer/ retail partnership on social media?

Q2 John is advertising on social media after talking to all the big players in sportswear (then getting a deal with a company 90% of fans have never head of) good corporate business.

Q3 season ticket £25 voucher refund (at least 4 games including a old firm) probably the best part of £130. The voucher is very disappointing, why not a discount on this season book.

Q4 again finance the £10m Black hole filled according to DP, what about amortisation (transfer fees paid of the life of the contract) over £6m due in the summer in our accounts.

Q5 Ashley he might be gone but we still have numerous court cases, and a pending financial penalty awarded against us awaiting a law lord rule of money due to Ashley.

19 May 2020 22:39:11
I give up. You’re the most pessimistic dog with a bone I’ve ever read. You come across as intelligent but asking questions isn’t particularly clever if you can’t offer an answer.

Why don’t you do what the rest of us did, buy some tickets, buy some shares, go the AGM and ask your questions. I doubt you are a fan or supporter by even considering asking for a refund. And you can get a £25 discount on MyGers which as you’ll know covers the old travel club fee etc. I’ll take my lead from Mr Park and Mr Bisgrove et al.

19 May 2020 22:43:40
And for the record, and I’ll not respond to your further ramblings, Questions 1-3 are irrelevant now. Q4 has been partially addressed by Mr Park who is a very well respected business particularly for his due diligence. As a club, we’ve been very clear about a clean slate but don’t let that get in the way of your negativity and gloom. That truth will out soon enough. As a club and support, we don’t need people like you giving out the constant negative sh*te. It’s tiresome and I think you just want to annoy. Kinda sad.

20 May 2020 08:17:22
Well said Ibrox.
I offered to take this man to corporate. Have him picked up in mull and returned.
A night I. one Devonshire. He declined. Strange.
All at my cost.

20 May 2020 08:27:41
Spot on obrox4Me, over the past 8-9 years, we as a Club, have had to put up with total negativity from the rest of Scottish Football and the Media. Just look at the remedial work completed on our Training Centre and Ibrox Stadium for starters, you can't do those things with no money. Rangers are a massive institution IOM, and we will now go from strength to strength following the removal of Ashley from the background, this will be a huge money earning venture in my opinion.

In conclusion, positivity from now on please, we have had enough doomsday soothsayers to last a lifetime.

20 May 2020 08:38:02
4lads just released blog interview with co owner of Castore which goes into a little detail on the deal, 3m per year guaranteed to rangers, realistic targets can be met if partnership goes well of taking it up to 5m per year, and ultimately aiming for 90’s sales of 7/ 8/ 9m per year in future seasons if all goes well. Rangers have no contractual obligation to purchase so many strips as a minimum like they would with Nike etc so that both parties will work as hard as each other to both be successful together.

20 May 2020 10:54:08
It’s a shame IOM does not provide a more balanced approach to expressing his views compared to the provocative approach he takes as he would likely get some support on here. Others have said it before but I am not convinced he is either a supporter or even a fan and quite simply prodding for a reaction.

20 May 2020 12:31:14
I'm the ying to the 85%-95% yang
Alway need both side of argument guys. Mr King came in with complete transparency line and keep us even more in the dark. We have by far the second biggest wage bill in the country (before you say but their is much bigger, they have a buffer of £30plus million in the bank) with only some season book money coming in. If this lockout of fans continues into September/ October how many clubs will survive? . Most of the bottom clubs live hand to mouth, it's the middle premier clubs that are at risk. If any fan can't see we are in a fight for survival open your eyes. We have no fall back money in the bank, money owed to other clubs (amortisation) awaiting court/ law Lords amount due to Ashley, more cases pending with Ashley, memorial walls, Hummel/ elite and no money coming in (as opposed to John £7,8million for the European run but forget outgoings) . I read the article about Castore, question he does say £3m upfront but doesn't say its every year, maybe we should be asking that question is that a one off payment. I will take the stick and ask the hard questions bring it on lads if at the end of the day it throw light onto the running of our club, but please remember at the end of the day we all want the same.

20 May 2020 13:30:06
John, I’d happily join in corporate one day too 😜 I’ll happily lend my seat to someone for the afternoon!

20 May 2020 14:09:55
Ibrox4me u never know. Do u like helecopters. Where u live roughly
I’m not sure iom is a fan, who turns done offer like that.
Including night in One Devonshire.

20 May 2020 16:09:37
I love all this hot air John and Ibrox and will be more than happy to take up that invite when we beat this horrid virus. On the yang side not a single answer to my questions of upmost importants. If you can't answer just say 'you don't know how we will pay these bills as they fall'. Don't try to patronise it is not becoming.

20 May 2020 16:55:30
We don’t know mull and neither do you or any club in the division fir that matter . How on earth do you know how much tic have in the bank? Is it not correct they have furloughed staff but we haven’t?

The truth of Castore deal is 3 mill a year
upfront and with expected normal sales that annual dig rising to 5 mill . Depending on other merchandising initiatives ie rangers golf merchandise etc this could rise to a cap if 9 mill per annum.
The prob now being that you do not spout the true facts but latch onto a negative narrative which is not either ying or yang but just nonsense . As your 3 mill for one year only
Spat .
That is what annoys a lot of posters on here . You seem very very hypocritical when your claims last year or year before was that the club should not spend, but live within their means, and be happy with mid table for a few years until we balance the books better .
Then you have the audacity to wax lyrical about the team when we were doing well in Europe and beating the manks? You can’t really have it both ways . If you want to compete and celebrate you can’t do it with your rhetoric so at least be fair.
Let the club deal with the finances as the vast majority of the support want . giving us a chance to compete .
Non of us are money men or financial wizards so the constant negative barrage of how the club is run without credible solutions is just a winging narrative of which we hear constantly from the opposition, not ying or yang so don’t kid yourself .
Looking like we have bought Hagi for 5 mill euros with the possibility of selling on to Lazio for 7 in the immediate future . Speculate to accumulate . simple.

20 May 2020 16:55:30
What bit u not get mull, not wasting any more my life answering same rubbish every week from u.

20 May 2020 17:28:12
Ps mull . Ibrox for me answered all your negative 4 points or concerns .
I am glad you said up to 95% of the support don’t share your views, as if only 5 % are disgruntled we as a club must be doing something right. Even the likes of man untd must have at least 30 % possibly more if disgruntled support.
However 5 % in no way qualifies a ying / yang comparison as ying / yang is perfectly balanced . as per your own admission of 5 % is way way off the mark .
But hey whatever floats your boat . There’s a couple of people like yourself on here with the same attitude, but I think it points more to character type rather than anything else .
Don’t you see? If we hadn’t found a merchandise partner you would be the first on here to complain and chastise .
We have found one and you are the first to complain . Sorry that’s wrong to be fair to you . Blue billy was first . you are second . 😔.

20 May 2020 17:43:08
John, I love helicopters. Apart from Vegas and the Grand Canyon, my favourite one was on a Sunday. These days I’m in (presently) sunny Lanarkshire and inhabit GF4 otherwise.

20 May 2020 17:47:28
Great posts Mols and John. I have sport and business as a professional day time but apart from a little insight, I’m the same as everyone else. Other than the odd piece, no one “tells me” much not have I “heard” any hot news. There’s the odd piece now and again although I do have connections, who rightly don’t and wouldn’t share anything key. My interest is as a fan for life, who will blindly follow my team everywhere and anywhere. Doesn’t make me more correct than anyone, but like most of the posters on here, I love my team, will defend them and will never give in. Or go to Mull 😜.

20 May 2020 20:28:29
Lol ibrox. Mull and Iona r fantastic places to visit. One off best hotels I’ve ever eaten in. The Highland cottage hotel.
I’m sure iom would have been.

20 May 2020 22:28:40
Both have a negative tripadvisor review from an ‘IOM’ 😂😂.

20 May 2020 23:38:52

You are quite correct that the Gers finances are not as healthy as Celtic and that many clubs will be in real difficulty in the coming months. I agree that some will not survive. This makes it all the more essential to support the club and pay for season tickets and any other offer or scheme the club puts forward if we can.

We are still in recovery and must support the team.

21 May 2020 02:01:31
We have both furloughed staff, mols/ G check it out, money in bank check newspaper accounts m/ G their audited ones handed into company house. The guy said £3m up front read the interview, you now have it at £9m each year. That's ying and yang. Still not a question answered . Question to the ED (think they are fair minded) . With wages bills, and other out goings money in bank who do you think are the vuruable clubs in our league.

{Ed001's Note - certainly not Rangers. They are one of the few with the potential to cope. Outside of Celtic and Rangers every club in Scotland is on the verge of folding, pretty much. The finances of football in general are a mess.}

21 May 2020 12:33:29
Could you give your break down of why you have come your 'certainly not Rangers' answer. Last look at audited accounts shows a lost, not monies in the bank, Mr King says no more money from him, no income, apart from season books. 2nd highest wage bill (£40m appox) . Court cases and fines and bills await. Today we find out we have sold the Albion training ground that will pay a few bill, but your selling the family silver now. That's some of my ying ED I await your yang cheers.

{Ed001's Note - Rangers have a board willing to invest what is needed, and a support large enough to bring the return in the future to make it worthwhile the board continuing to invest. Isn't the Albion training ground derelict property? It would cost money to keep it, as opposed to making money by offloading it.}

21 May 2020 16:36:51
Ok mull rather than going round the mulberry bush again
1. ( The reports I read regarding Castore are as I stated . I researched a bit further than just the one interview just to make sure ) .
2. I am not aware of any rangers players furloughed, but I might be wrong . if you can point me in the direction of those reports . I didn’t say staff I said players .
0kay granted you can find out manks balance by accounts but why?
What is it you exactly want mull? And please don’t say the survival of our club by good financial management. As I said before you are quite happy to celebrate success on the pitch becoming of the boards strategy .
I do notice you do not address any of those previous points .
But what is your end game here . considering the fact that you have been pushing this for a few years now . even although we are getting stronger .
An example of this being its being reported ( from an independent source ) that Katic and Kamara could go fir a combined transfer of 10 million . and as we bought them for 1.5 combined . this would be great business and a testament to the club playing it correct?

I dread to think what state the club would be in . with your happily sitting in the middle of the league strategy .
Are you aware of how the mainstream support react to even drawing a game?
Rangers are born winners and the support expect the best and are not prepared to put up with anything else . so if this is your strategy I think you are backing the wrong team .
Give us some credible alternatives that the rank and file could look at .
If it has any credence whatsoever, and dosnt just appear as a whinging rhetoric, I fir one would certainly back it and forward it in an email or hand written letter to the board .

Otherwise I for one am well happy on the clubs development in the past years 👍.

Europa will be finished so we will ha e taken in close to 20mill for europe by time all moneys taken in. We have sellable assets morelos and barisic 2gether could easily fetch 25mill. Kamara also likely away. new kit deal 3 mill a year rising depending on shirt sales. Have a day off man. Jeez.

21 May 2020 20:07:28
I normally back Iom, but the most recent posts show even more negativity and leave his stance out with my scope of thought. I have not changed my thinking on dm and dr, but Mr. Douglas Park is in a different league, in fact the Park family have been contributors to our club for many years.

Ed 1's forecast of them and Rangers being the 2 favourites to survive, I believe to be true. However, my fear is that football will not survive, well certainly not as we know it.
To my fellow supporters, give mull a bit of scope, as we are all not functioning at our best. A bit like our team, after the winter break.
I am still 100% behind SG and backed by DP and the board, I am confident for the "season" ahead. I would polish my boots, but I cannot remember where I left them.

21 May 2020 21:03:05
Good on you billy b 👍.

22 May 2020 03:41:57
Cheers Billy B, I now see this is a losing battle, so I will refrain from posting for a while. Good luck to the team, when we get started again. I will keep my own council, and despite the M/ G, John 25, DK and the rest I stand by everything I've posted on this site. Cheers lads and ED for the debate.

22 May 2020 14:16:10
What’s the battle mull? Why the battle . explain?
I asked you what is your end game and maybe we can understand better and possibly help .
No one football supporter could ever be expected to agree with every financial decision from their board but when it seems to be a disagreement with every decision there is obviously something wrong and has to be done .
Like when we all got together to show displeasure at the obvious disdain the easdales and Ashley showed towards our club .
After the first few demos, the easdales soon stopped taking their seats in the stand .
So don’t take the huff mull . just explain what you want and how you think we can achieve . bearing in mind we need to win win win with no alternative or excuses . If we don’t get a level of success in the park, the rank and file will not tolerate . so the board need to spend .
Good luck whatever mull and I hope you realise some of us just feel the Neanderthal need to defend the club against all comers 👍.

22 May 2020 16:09:26
IOM, I have no doubt about your sincerity, but I believe that just at this present time we need to have something to look forward to. Let's put our brains to the potential we have and ways we can shake adversity and prove once again we are SIMPLY the BEST. Cheers mate. 🇬🇧🇬🇧👍.

22 May 2020 16:45:19
Well said billy stay safe u too iom.

22 May 2020 23:52:28
Thanks guys but will be taking the 5th for a while. Thanks all for the great debates stay save all.

26 May 2020 08:33:19
Still no acknowledgement from IOM or Billyb of the contribution our biggest shareholder has made to get us to where we are!

The Parks investment over the years pale into insignificance against Dave Kings but they get the credit?

26 May 2020 12:00:02
Don’t hold your breath DK.

27 May 2020 09:21:59
Yes hold your breath.

30 May 2020 22:23:31
Can’t hold my breath for long with a wry smile thinking of you Billyb. Oh how it must hurt to see Dave King do well for the club!

31 May 2020 00:01:33
Wonder what some of these people will say when mr king unfurls the league champs flag next year 👍🤔.

31 May 2020 21:24:30
Molsgoals they will be as happy as you and I.

03 Jun 2020 21:14:12
John, you are probably the most balanced poster on here, so certain others have you to thank for the continuing presence of Mull and myself on here. Just one thing, we will be happier than most, considering we have our doubts. The good thing is, we will cheering our beloved team and Mr. Douglas Park dave who?

03 Jun 2020 21:37:16
Billy. Thank u. The club have released an excellent video tonight interview with Stewart Robertson.
Lot off good things coming our way.
museum, new shop, old shop turned into sports bar among it. some interesting new revenue options.
The Money should also belong to rangers not Ashley et al.

03 Jun 2020 23:36:28
Dave who saved our club billy . and anyone denying that just do not know the facts or choose not to recognise . How ignorant and stupid .
DP would not be anywhere near the club if it were not for DK .
Respect where due . even although I respect we are all entitled to our separate views, I’m ashamed when I see some of the posts of supposed fellow bears . How shallow can some people be . wow.

04 Jun 2020 14:16:49
Molsgoals, this post is your opinion and just shows how balanced John25 has been over a very difficult period for our club.

However, your comments show no balance whatsoever e g. 1st paragraph is ridiculous, and my only comment would be is that you focus on what you want to believe are the facts and we [mull and myself] are ignorant and stupid. Fine.
Para 2 does not make sense unless you are mystic meg.

Para 3 You refer to respect and do not show any, and then throw the insults.
I give up, but would suggest that you take some notice of John25 i. e. totally positive, but balanced. Good luck.

04 Jun 2020 18:03:36
Not an opinion my friend but a fact . Dave king saved our club . no matter the spin
If you fill a glass full of water untill it overflows. it will overflow . fact not opinion .
Whether you want to try and bring other posters in to validate your opinion is fine
But it certainly dosnt distract from the fact ( whether you and others appreciate his and the boards efforts or not ) in any way .
This is why I am paying my 750 for my season tik. ( like thousands of others ) with the prospects of not even seeing a game . If mr king went through what he did to get rid of Ashley it’s the least I can do at this time .
And I am in no way flush for cash 👍. Cheers billy.

05 Jun 2020 18:43:43
Sorry Molsgoals, but your interpretation of what has happened is an opinion. Your water comment leaves me bemused, and as far as paying for a season ticket is your choice and would not influence anyone else.
We are miles apart on our opinions, but if you want to be skint to follow your love for dk's actions, then that is your option but does not mean that what dk has done has been the best route for us in recent years.
If you respond, in order to have the last word, then fine I submit but will never agree. All the best.

06 Jun 2020 00:51:24
No opinion . fact billy . you say you submit . past post . it was give up . and if I remember right previous posts as well . rather than thank the man you choose to give up the debate .
well I ask you . what would have been your alternative to mr king taking on Ashley and the easdales?
Taking into account no one else was prepared to put their money where their mouth was when Ashley was trying to manoeuvre the deeds for ibrox to lease it back to us at a reported 5 mill a year?
Let’s hear it Billy boy 👍
It’s nothing to do with having the last word . but to do with showing a bit of respect for the man who saved our club .
Fact . or as I say what was your alternative?
Mr king brought mr park and others on board . including Stevie G . Fact not opinion.

07 Jun 2020 00:28:35
Surely DK should get some respect for what he's done as part of the team in charge at Rangers? It has been a balance between meeting expectations and keeping us a going concern while getting rid of parasites at what looked like the expense of DK s health and some of his own business. In the end no one can say he did not have the clubs best interests at heart he also hasn't just left he's stayed a share holder which to me says it all. With Robertson's last interview it seems to be looking positive going forward and some amazing things planned at Ibrox hats off to all for that.
This year is going to be the most precarious and its hard to judge where we are financially as the CV was not planned. The previous planning expected losses year on year until now worry is this year is an anomaly.
Hopefully investment still arrives as planned as surely investment would get a higher return due to the downturn. This may also be a good leveler between us and the mhanks. Only history will judge DK but I for 1 will always be thankful for his efforts.

07 Jun 2020 10:50:32
Great post 55 . mainly because you bring a balanced view to the debate . Am sure most bears see it that way . 👍.

07 Jun 2020 20:20:35
Good post 55.

08 Jun 2020 10:40:02
Yes 55, a good solid post, and positive but not ridiculous.
Personally, my biggest concern, currently, is getting bums on seats, that due to circumstances is not practical.
Investment will only be forthcoming, while there is a potential return, so while we have the necessary personal protections in place, any profit making will be extremely difficult. The sooner we get back to some sort of order, then the better hope we have of a future.
As far as my previous comments on dk are concerned, they do not change, but the future is what needs attention just now.
Yes 55, we have potential, but the next few steps are critical. Unfortunately, we are not in control of the majority of factors.

10 Jun 2020 11:56:34
Thanks gents
Billyb think the same bums on seats is going to be biggest thing and it will all be reliant on how deep our pockets are as fans. My thoughts though are our fan base will buy in bulk now the fatman is gone which I'm excited to see what revenue that brings. Would love to be able to buy a couple of players that have international potential for the euros and world cup for decent resale value as Hagi is intended. My feeling is that may be wishful thinking if CV goes on too long and the deferred wage will need payment at some point. Fingers crossed though.
Not overly fussed about talking about their finances as it's their obsession I do think that if we can weather this well it may level things with them ie because of there high operating cost say a 20 % drop in revenue for them is more exposing than to us ie bigger funding gap. Reason I bring it up is we are trying to compete financially their hopeful lack of investment would then even the score. Not an accountant though so there may be holes in that. 😂.

10 Jun 2020 14:56:43
Yes 55, I get your drift, but I feel that keeping Castore happy will be the key, and I am sure sure our punters will buy by the barrowload.
However bums on seats is much more difficult, and buying season tickets and not going to games will only last so long.
What we need is a novel approach, e. g. the proposal for Edmiston house, away games shown at Ibrox, accept circa 10,000 will be a home crowd and budget accordingly.

10 Jun 2020 16:32:11
Agreed Billy to the novel approach it will be essential to a self sustainable club. Only thing i'd argue is Castore have to keep us happy we are the customer and them getting into team sports rides on this. More excited about it than any new things recently.

10 Jun 2020 17:37:57
55, Castore chose us because of the potential, and being totally honest it is not a buyer's market.
I believe we are the best, and obviously I am biased, but every deal is a two way street. We keep buying, they make money and keep on funding. Simple, but we need this with other sources of income. Money in the bank is the key to our future, and I think there are many positives, but being self sustainable will be difficult with the prospect of profitability in football clubs. However, given the selling power we offer manufacturers, then this is our ace. The rest time will tell.

11 Jun 2020 19:57:29
Good post billy and you are on the button.
I think museum and sports bar could be a very good income stream.

16 May 2020 21:46:49
No accounts in for end of April I'm afraid.

Agree2 Disagree0

17 May 2020 16:54:14
Oh my god . keep that under your hat . don’t tell mull .
Maybe in this instance we are more concentrated on staying alive? Just a thought.

15 Jun 2020 16:12:01
Is this for uefa compliance? Licence?

13 May 2020 17:28:32
I imagine that RFC only option is to sue, for -

1. Negligence;
2. Complacency;
3. Coercion;
4. Bullying;
5. Intransigence.

'All under the heading of, Duty of Care.

If they sue and there are sufficient grounds, in law, and it goes to court then a judge can issue a court order regarding ALL relevant information.

In the meantime RFC can ask for an Interim Interdict to stop ALL proceedings regarding the Premier League'

and someone replied that none of the above pertained to RFC asking for an independent inquiry - that may be so, but it was what was mentioned by CEO's and MD's of other clubs who were voting for.

It should be remembered that a business or company has a duty of care towards it's staff, members and associated members to ensure that every process is robust and above board to the benefit of all and the detriment of none.

14 May 2020 14:17:15
This was my reply to a post about the vote, the first paragraph is taken from a post in the Banter pages. Does anyone agree with this.

will be difficult to champion Celtic until Liewell departs from the scene

Here a novel idea do it on the park like we did in December. Liewell doesn't score last minute winners for them, he doesn't pop up in the 89 min to clear a header off the line. It's the players and in the last 2 season pre x-mas we looked the part, then for some reason the wheels came off. Get the playing side going/ winning, let's do our talking on the park. Don't let's go down their paranoid ways. We need to move on or this will eat away the whole club. Let stay together (better together) and united and do it on the park like we have 54 times before.

14 May 2020 15:12:37
Really hard to do that (and compete on any level ) when certain people do not want to speculate and want to sit mid league living as they say within our means as long as we are not in debt .
Apart from that good post mull.

Nothing paranoid about exposing corruption .
Are you happy with the chair of the spfl being the chair of a company owned by the two biggest shareholders of our rivals? How could that ever be justified and not lead to bias within the board.

14 May 2020 23:49:51
Molsgoals, this is true, its why mr park won't let it go, he has been a business man to long not to know this kind of stuff,i'dimagine once doncaster& such realise we are not letting this go they will start trying to clean up any mess they would leave behind, and will re sign at the last minuete, on his wages who can blame him. mate.

15 May 2020 12:32:49
Molsgoals for every mc cleaned or what ever his name is they could answer back Campbell ogilvie, or Gordon smith. This guy didn't have a vote did he? The thing that highlights it for me is the championship, the place for the dog fight in the 1st vote. Ever team apart from Inverness voted against us. Dave mc kinnon ex rangers wrote in the record and it open my eyes.

15 May 2020 13:55:07
Why . was Campbell ogilvie . and Gordon Smith chairmen of Rangers major shareholders or owners companies?
For someone who spends a lot of time looking on line for any anti rangers rehtoric and pushing it on this forum, exaggerating the negative at any opportunity, I am surprised that you don’t know one of the main players in our fight with the corruption within the spfl
MacLennan Is his name . and the great Dave King ( remember him your previous focus ) hi lighted this years ago . Cheers mull.

15 May 2020 19:09:00
You lost me there, so it's OK for ex Rangers people to be in high positions in Scottish football but as you say its not for a person who was a chairman of some company owed by a shareholder of Celtic. Hypocritical MG.

15 May 2020 20:32:51
Not was . is the chairman of both companies . . big big big difference and it’s not just some shareholder of Celtic it is Desmond, and the next biggest shareholder . but as usual you exaggerate to suit your rhetoric.

And as I said for someone who trawls the internet ( constantly pulling out negative facts about our club) I would have thought you would have been able to obtain the negative about this situation we are in correctly and with precision .
Check it for yourself mull.

15 May 2020 23:51:41
Molsgoal, has conflict of interest all over it, and they know it, mate.

16 May 2020 00:23:31
It’s criminal paulellen, and how we can’t prove it is beyond me.

16 May 2020 00:27:14
You will be right MG but can't you see my point he's not allowed a vote, only the 42 clubs are allowed that. Did he bribe 26 plus them to down our porpossal. The 27 voted out of self interest, but so did most of the 13 who backed us. It isn't fair to hearts, partick or Stranraer but it human natural looking after themselves.

16 May 2020 12:24:10
He might not be allowed a vote but he can and does still show impartiality and undue influence and bias, as he did when he had a question and answer with himself . all his interviews . his letters and mails to member clubs . Etc etc .
. get it now mull.

17 May 2020 14:35:29
No I don't M/ G. Each club voted for their own self interest. That's the bottom line M/ G do you agree.

18 May 2020 00:04:09
Aberdeen. Livingston .
bottom line is how the clubs reacted to the hype coming from boardroom.
