As we reported on the site yesterday, Celtic striker John Guidetti is facing a charge of making a ‘comment of an offensive nature’ in an interview with a Dutch TV crew.
But in an interview this morning, former Scottish FA compliance officer Vincent Lunny claimed that it was more down to attacking Rangers or making fun of Rangers.
He said: “It would appear that their focus is on the comment attacking Rangers or making fun of Rangers for having gone into liquidation back in 2012.
Celtic striker John Guidetti has been issued with a notice of complaint by the Scottish FA for making an ‘offensive’ comment during an interview with a Dutch TV crew.
The on loan Manchester City striker had repeated a chant during filming that was dedicated to him by Celtic supporters. The 22-year-old Swedish striker sang: “Oh John Guidetti, puts the ball in the net-y, he’s a Super Swede and the huns are deid, walking in Guidetti wonderland.”
The ‘Three Bears’ consortium have loaned Rangers £1.5m for working capital on an unsecured basis. They have also announced that the second £5m tranche of Mike Ashley’s £10m loan will not be used and have ‘ceased the process’.
The details were announced by Rangers in a statement to the London Stock Exchange on Monday.
At the end of the season, whatever happens between now and mid-May, Rangers fans and players can look back on the campaign after enjoying a GOOD 2014-15 season.
This is not a statement intended to cause opprobrium among the Bears support, rather it is an honest appraisal of the club’s season in a league I felt they would struggle to find their feet in after two seasons amongst the likes of Peterhead and Montrose.
Those two seasons didn’t provide much of a test for Rangers, and the unbeaten run in last season’s campaign proved nothing, only providing a sense that they could simply walk into the Championship and run away with it. Hibs? They couldn’t beat Hamilton in a play-off. Hearts? Lost too many good players.
Hibs buckled under the pressure of defending a seven match winning run and succumbed to a Rangers team who worked hard, played with a strong mentality and won the game by two goals to nil.
The favourites tag never sits well with Hibernian and their knack of losing when the expectancy levels are high cropped up once more.
Dave King, according to STV Sport, has applied to the Court of Session for permission to become a director of Rangers Football Club and its parent company Rangers International FC PLC.
The South African-based businessman recently led the coup d’etat to overthrow the previous regime fronted by David Somers, James Easdale and Derek Llambias.
But despite issuing a statement soon after he took over stating that he would wait until the Scottish FA and the Stock Exchange regulators determine if he is fit and proper person, King now looks to steal a march on their decisions to force his appointment by going through the civil courts.
Stuart McCall has been officially unveiled as Rangers manager until the end of the season, he replaces caretaker manager Kenny McDowall who left the Ibrox side on Wednesday.
McCall left Motherwell in November after four years at Fir Park and will be in charge of a side that will give him the biggest test of his career to date.
He knows what it is to be a winner with Rangers, knows how to battle both on and off the park in the various positions he has filled north and south of the border – but the current Rangers is a totally different club to the Rangers that McCall knew as a player.
Rangers have announced that non-executive director Chris Graham handed in his resignation on Friday following his posting of a racist and homophobic tweet depicting the Prophet Muhammad, in a one sentence statement to the London Stock Exchange the board have accepted it.
The statement read: “Chris Graham has tendered his resignation as a Director of RIFC. This has been accepted by the Board.”
