A tribute to Rangers TV, thoughts on Neil ‘same club’ Doncaster’s SFA gig

“Wit’s the keeper doin’, Tom?” is now appearing on t-shirts. There is little doubt that the Green Brigade will not pass up on the chance to include the undoubted best catch-phrase from Beautiful Sunday in their display when the sides meet again at Hampden in the Scottish Cup semi-final next month.

The Rangers TV guys have given us so many funnies since their club made it into the Premiership after beginning life in the old Third Division. Here’s a tribute to Tom and his excitable side-kick for you to enjoy.

A few other more serious points to mention. Neil Doncaster to the SFA? He is the man who has done more than most to push the same club myth and there are those who seem more than a little happy to go along with it.

The old Third Division, where Rangers started in season 2012-13 is no more and the old Scottish Football League is no more either.

Neil Doncaster went to meet a hand-picked group of Celtic fans last year and revealed that the old Scottish Football League weren’t very good at keeping minutes but admitted that it was two Rangers supporters – David Longmuir (who got a huge bonus as he had the new Rangers in his league structure) and Jim Ballantyne from Airdrie FC, a season ticket holder at Ibrox, who decided that the new club could keep the old club’s honours.

Then they all scrapped the league entirely, merging into with the SPFL.

No paperwork kept. Evidence gone! Accountability zero.

There’s always that judicial review though…

Also, regarding news reports on the date for the game against them at Celtic Park. The league will NOT want to allow us to win the league against them. The papers picked up on the date being the week after the Cup semi-final and this would have been the case had Celtic not won on Sunday. It is likely that the Glasgow Derby will now be pushed as far back as possible after the split to allow for the league to have been wrapped up.
