Tell us something we don’t know!


So…..Lord William Nimmo Smith has completed his enquiry and has presented it to the SFA who in turn have passed it on to the Judicial panel for scrutiny. It has been a rigorous process with, you would assume, no stone left unturned in an effort to truly get to the facts and bring out the truth of what was going on at RFC.

You could sense the excitement and anticipation among the press pack as they awaited the statement from Stewart Regan. What stunning truth were we about to hear? What golden nuggets of fact were about to be shared with the nation over the goings on at Ibrox? You could hear a pin drop as they waited with bated breath and Mr. Regan uttered the following words,

“Principally, it is the belief of the Board, taking into account the prima facie evidence presented today, that Mr Craig Whyte is not considered to be a Fit and Proper person to hold a position within Association Football”

Really?!! Do you think so?!! A panel consisting of our most learned judge, Mr. William Nimmo Smith, Professor Niall Lothian, OBE no less, a past President of the Institute of Chartered Accountants, Bob Downes, former Director of the BT Group and our very own Stewart Regan. This is the stunning tit-bit of truth they hand us after two weeks of enquiry!

Gentlemen! Tell us something we don’t know! You could have put Rab the plumber, Tam the bin man, Shug the bus driver and Senga the dinner lady in the same room and they would have told you the same thing in ten minutes and been back at their work in time for the morning tea-break! Come on Stewart, Joe public deserves better.

Where do we go from here then? Well, Mr. Regan did also go on to say that Rangers will be charged with bringing the game into disrepute (another stunning revelation) and that the report did highlight a number of other potential rule breaches by the club and its owner. The potential breaches being considered include obligations and duties of members, Official return, Financial records, Division of receipts and payment of expenses (Scottish Cup). It would appear then that there are a long list of rule breaches being considered by the Judicial panel.

The process now, we have to assume is that the Judicial panel will sit and use as evidence this report put together by the Independent Enquiry Board, along with whatever else they have as evidence to RFC’s wrong doing over the years. Lets hope that after whatever time it takes for them to consider the evidence that Mr. Regan can issue a statement that does not insult our intelligence.

Next they will be telling us that Celtic play in Green and White!
