Sadly having been busily engaged in doing the thousand and one things required to scrub clean the condominium in search of a healthier environment, walking in search of some fitness, searching for dead soldiers and finding one or two lying about, and since hearing the news regarding American Bill Miller pulling out of the deal to save Rangers form oblivion, I have been laughing so much I cannot post. So you will have to do with a picture of a 'Clutterbups.'
The bones creak from what went before but the sides ache from this news. Now why would an American wish to buy a football team he has never heard off,playing a game he has never played and knows nothing about, in a nation he has never visited? Now he says he has received abusive e-mails from Rangers fans! Lucky man, some of us have to meet them to receive abuse! Some of course might say he was a 'chancer,' dealing with the administrators of the tax avoiding club, who are also 'chancers,' while they attempt to sort the mess left by the 'chancer' who saw his chance to make money by he had billions, when in fact he did not, by buying the club from the main 'chancer' who had run up millions of debts and ran away, supported by his lackeys in the media. Of course I could be wrong here.....
Here is the latest on Bill Miller, whoever he was! The Washinton Post also mentions this story, the Tennessee Towing Tycoon runs for home after being told 'Yank go home!' Sadly Bill has no idea of the type of people he was dealing with in Glasgow. A proper understanding of the situation would have saved him much abuse. What an embarrassment this whole escapade has become. Yet in spite of it all the press friends of David Murray enjoy their succulent lamb and still refuse to attack the shambles. Had it been any other club then some journalism might arise, but not for Rangers. What a disgrace to Scotland this has become. 'Yank go home' for your own sake!
Just published, Douglas Fraser speaks with some credibility here.
