Rangers' Titles Stripping to Commence

Rangers' Titles Stripping to Commence

Rangers and their fans think they are working magic. By saying so much and putting out a different agenda for every issue regarding 'ex' and 'new' Rangers they either have a retort for every dig aimed at them or simply hope that the web will become so tangled that everyone will become fed up and cease to care. Quite when Rangers are the same Rangers and Rangers are a different Rangers is dependent on the issue at hand. By the bizarre logic of Rangers fans, they are exactly the same club with the same honours and history but without the debts. A simple question with a very simple answer - if this were possible, why wouldn't every club do this? If your answer is 'because it's not possible and any human that thinks otherwise needs their head checked and be prevented from reproducing' then you are correct.

There's no need for me to extensively sift through Green's statement from today. Nothing can come close to describing the illogic of this latest statement which has put Rangers bizarre fans into another frenzy. The stand out comment from Green was: 'The club ceased to be subject to the SPL`s rules when it was ejected from its league. Our lawyers have made that point repeatedly to the SPL in correspondence and yet our requests for an explanation from the SPL have been completely ignored. The SPL`s silence on these issues is deafening. The outcome of the SPL`s process will have no legal effect.'

Short story short, the SPL are the governing body for the titles which Rangers won. Rangers are thus under jurisdiction from the SPL.

Green continued: 'As far as I am concerned, Rangers Football Club has won a world record 54 league titles, and, whatever the decision of the SPL commission, these titles cannot and will not be taken away from us and our Manager Ally McCoist is in total agreement.'

Sorry Charlie, the titles are not under the ownership of Rangers. Ignoring the fact that the titles were won by the 'old' Rangers, the titles are those of the SPL. The SPL can withdraw a title.

And while we're at it, shall we also ignore the idea that Rangers were probably and very most likely, given they are no longer members of the league, not invited to the hearing tomorrow at all and Green is on the defensive because we all know what's about to happen?

All in all, Green is a clown. The Rangers fans that are taking his words for gospel are on a whole new level of clownery.
