It’s really quite difficult to get yer head round the behaviour of Duff & Phelps, the R*ngers management and players.
Three weeks have passed since R*ngers were plunged into administration by the HMRC and in that time the approved administrator husnae struck a red marker through where to save costs. In fact, they seem to be playing to the crowd.
We have seen them attempt to sign a player for a reported £5,000 then admit today that major artery cutting is required to see the club through to the end of the season. They have played up to the fans asking them to come through the turnstyles and turned a charity match into a fundraiser.
Unlike Pompey who went into administration at the same time we huvnae seen any savage cuts at Ibroke. It seems that D&P have only been searching doon the back of the couch fir spare change to keep the beast alive. I don’t know nothing aboot finance apart from my pin number but it’s clear that D&P have a strange take on what is best for the club surviving and for the creditors.
They seem to be acting like cowards.
Fat Sally has been quite adamant that he widnae help in cutting the costs. He was clear fae the start that he widnae make the choice of what players should go. Firgive me but from what I can remember Dundee or Livingston management never got that option. They were told here’s what the cuts amount tae get oan wie it.
D&P being cowards lead to a situation that Fat Sally’s lack of back bone is seen as dignified. He’s doing it for team spirit when really he is just as much as a coward himself by not making the decision of what players should go and this sees him riding the club to oblivion when he could do something aboot it.
The players? Cowards as well. Not helped by the other two creating a situation which would tear apart even the closet of groups their selfish natures see them unable and unwilling to do the decent thing. It was all deferrals then pay cuts as long as the cut was made up wie a slice of the transfer fee at the other end.
These players will get joabs. What aboot – for example – Wee Joey. A lifelong Bare got a wee security joab at Murray Park. Has turned doon moves to Morrisions and Lidils to stay where he is as he feels part of the Bares in the Big Hoose. He feels part of their success when they speak to him through the rolled up windaes of their flash motors after training.
All three parts being cowards means that Wee Joey disnny know if his rent/mortgage is going to be paid and if he should be looking for new employment. He is the real victim in this so forgive me for not buying the false sympathy and plaudits that is being lauded on the players and coaches.
Gregg Wylde walked away. He said it was for the good of the club. The below tweet proves different and also that he walked right into talks with a Championship club. He left with Sandy Jardine proving that they will be bitter Blues to the end. Dinny sign fir Celtic was his advice.
Mervan Celik walked oot on a 3 and a half year deal. Probably because they made him put his first name on the back of his jersey so not to upset the natives. That and Jardine makes you wonder if this institution and the road to Hell they are oan isnny the correct path.
