Murray's £1 sale to whyte did NOT include Ibrox and Auchenhowie.
1.) Hi Billyb
If you are correct and I am not on here to question your reasons for stating this.
Then the share issue from Green and co must be looked into with afine tooth combe.
If they were listing assets that did not belong in the share offer the police will have to make arrests for fraud.
But if SDM does own the assets he would have said so by now.
Tune in to next weeks excitng installment of the con of the century!!!!!!!!
2.) Billy B can't believe that mate we all know CW is a con man but why take on all the debt that could have come from the big tax case and another debts shown in BDO (number of creditors). Take all that on for a football team with no stadium or training ground.
3.) Billy b your way of the mark with that one bank of scotland lifted their security to allow all assets to go to whyte for the pound from murray once they had reiceived the 18m from whyte via ticketus this is where the major fraud liess because at that stagge whyte did not control rangers or the right to season ticket monies because whyte had to show the bank of scotland and murray that the money was in whytes lawyers client account

Board statement, on official site, is pretty clear, in that, no deal will be made on the uof terms. I was always sceptical about any official agreement on Ibrox, so we must assume that the board have contingencies.
Maybe, if we returned to pay when you go, then we might have more influence on the proceedings in the future.
1.) 18 May 2014 16:47:05
I have no faith in this board and what they say or promise. I feel this is a ploy to get the fans to buy ST's and then pocket the cash
2.) I have not renewed & won't be as long as they are in charge, starve them out.
3.) Av no renewed either dae kin what am go do but certainly no giving it to that board! Al maybe just buy a ticket each week
4.) 20 May 2014 01:49:29
Billyb, I have total respect for your posts and have read them with interest, I have to admit I havnt had a s/t for a few years, work doesn't allow me the time, I have however been a bluenose for 40 yrs, and spent my youth walking to ibrox from maryhill sumtimes twice a week, watching the likes of Billy Urquart and Gregor Stevens, but with the added pleasure of Bobby Russell and The Coop I have very real fears for our club this summer m8, I fear they may run us into the ground while most of us are on holiday, The King team must buy them out or its a no brainer, they will sell everything and walk away, like Whyte, never to be heard of again , Murray did this to us, never let it be forgotten
5.) Tommy45, just like yourself I have followed our team for many years, 55+, and still recall watching Johnny Hubbard, Don Kitchenbrand and Maxie Murray. Then Millar, Brand and Wilson, before you come on the scene, but the main thing we followed them through the good and the bad.
You are 100% correct about Murray, he ripped us apart and all for self gain. The demise of supporters clubs and the massive push for the sale of season tickets is down to him. Cheers mate and who knows what is round the corner.
03 Jan 2017 22:37:58
Surely it is time to be realistic about where we are as a club.
There are many optimistic posts that see DK as a Messiah. They are trying to justify all his comments and actions. Fine, but I would ask one question and that is, what are his plans for the immediate need for input of cash, to see the season out? Not to buy players but just to meet our fixture commitments.
1.) 03 Jan 2017 22:59:05
it will be more soft loans from the rangers men on the board
David king promised transparency to the fans but has clearly not been very transparent so far maybe if he would come out with a clear direction of what we are going get to do to raise funds for transfers ect and stuck to it and carried it out then we mine start believing in him again so far there is no clear direction or plan in place and for me the money we do have Warburton is not the man to spend it i think king wanted the fans to pay there way once again with a share issue but that never got voted threw so has left us in limbo again.
2.) 03 Jan 2017 23:13:08
Dave King is skint and apparently the board members are not keen to give any more soft loans as they cannot be transferred into shares. King is getting desperate and apparently approached Brian Kennedy for investment which he turned down. Not sure where the money is going to come from to see out the season.
3.) 04 Jan 2017 00:19:54
Gor i take it you have a seat on the board to know all this at the shareholders meeting the board including King said more money would be put in for Jan transfer window and to keep club going through the season Craigs you are half right they do want a share issue but didn't want to have to offer certain shareholders more shares which would have weakened those shareholders stranglehold on our club I don't have to name them surely but they can have a share issue anytime but all shareholders would need to be offered shares I have shares and sat through the meeting without this board our club would be in some state we are living off soft loans as we run at a loss until all the rubbish going on behind the scenes is sorted we will struggle there isn't going to be some sugar daddy waiting in the wings over £20 mill has been punted in already by this board we just need to accept where we are and get on with it.
4.) 04 Jan 2017 09:22:56
Think about it, we have never sought a "sugar daddy", as we continually prove that we are prepared to back our club.
Money was lost by many due to the liquidation of the company "owned" by whyte. Money was lost by many in the Green term. Shares lost value due to DK's orchestrated season ticket ban. So it is pretty clear that investors will be wary of parting with their cash, and that includes many of our fans.
There has been absolutely no plan tabled to take us forward and that is why I see us as rudderless. What we have is a club that is a poor investment, at present, and unless some action is taken by the board the outcome is very rocky.
5.) 04 Jan 2017 10:34:51
Billy b you say we are continually prepared to back our club I take it you mean the supporters well we have nearly full house every home game but the club still runs at a loss we have no credit stream we have no income from kit sales ETC we are fighting through the courts to try and change that it's millions in court costs you say King's orchestrated season ticket ban it was one of the min reasons the old board was ousted they had no money are you saying we should have bought season tickets and kept the old board they are the reason we are in this state they divided our club up between them look at the contracts that were handed out to their pals we are still paying the price so all in all the fans do pay their way every home game but it's not enough to keep the lights on so we depend on the board who have put in just over £20mill and more will be needed but until we get these horrendous contracts sorted out and we have an income from kit sales a bank credit stream I'm afraid this board is all we have without them we are in trouble.
6.) 04 Jan 2017 11:07:03
Disagree billyb, it was clear at Nov AGM that we wanted fresh share issue, did not want the charlatans involved, and the motion did not receive sufficient support (thanks to Ally McCoist I recall) . Additional soft loans will be provided as required, and hopefully the shareholders will do the right thing at this years AGM to facilitate a share issue. Too many legal issues currently pending for anything dramatic capital structure wise to happen in the short term. Think DK made this clear. Certainly don't believe we are rudderless. Despite the SJ and Celtic results we are also competitive and on course to qualify for Europe.
7.) 04 Jan 2017 11:09:53
Billy B I sense your continued frustration and lack of faith in DK but have to question your continuous criticsm of him.
You say that we don't seek a Sugar Daddy but many continually criticise DK for not investing money (apparent £30m) . Evidence suggests that all clubs need a benefactor (if only initially as with Celtic) to get a club stable until a self sufficient business model can be established. I reckon that DK is currently down £30-35m on his dealings with Rangers over the years with no realistic current opportunity for recovery of his investments. The fans now expect him to invest a further £30m without security or the guarantee of exchange for equity in a situation which is constrained by legal process and the SD stranglehold on our commercial viability
I would also suggest that the share price depression is more to do with the previous management of the club (Green and Sommers) and the fact that the club cannot realistically grow with any pace until the SD handcuffs are removed.
You say that no plan has been tabled to improve the clubs situation when the truth as I see it is that the last 2 AGM's have tabled the option to free up investment opportunity to people genuinely interested in improving Rangers but this has not been supported which has stagnated the club for 18 months. He has been fairly transparent with this plan.
You refer to action being taken by the board. What action other than the legal process that they are currently having to follow would you have the board take. Clearly I support the current board but would be open minded enough to consider evidence if you have it that DK and the 3 bears have an agenda which is anything other than for the staged return of Rangers to success.
I would agree that it is not ideal to have a benefactor figure in control of our club but the current realistic options are the fans invest directly in large numbers through increased season ticket or other vehicle as we have no access to the lucrative sky payments as in the EPL. As a a season ticket holder I would pay double the season ticket price every 2 years to finance the fans expectations but comment on this forum continually show that fans would not support this type of option
This currently leaves us with no option but to support the snail like progress being offered by DK and the 3 bears.

Has anyone explained why garner was at a NHS hospital, has the players not been insured?
9.) 04 Jan 2017 12:27:17
He was at an NHS hospital because of the type of injury. Waste of time going to rosshall as they would have sent him their anyway.
10.) 04 Jan 2017 12:34:18
Are you suggesting something wrong with NHS? Last time I checked the best consultants including those working privately were based at NHS hispitals.
11.) 04 Jan 2017 12:56:33
You telling me you want your top signing sitting in a NHS waiting room, and you are kidding yourself on that a private hospital can't deal with that injury. I'm pointing out that your club is in that much trouble they can't pay for private medical care for their prized assets. I'm also not slagging the NHS it's a great service.
12.) 04 Jan 2017 13:01:41
MOLS well said obviously a better educated man or lady than me you put it into words far better than I could thanks.
13.) 04 Jan 2017 13:14:15
For all those that disagree with my thoughts, time will tell, but I totally agree with Gor's summary. We have little cash, it looks like there will be no more soft loans. Certain individuals, when approached, are refusing to assist.
Just remember, it was DK that made various, ridiculous statements about funding, starting with the family pension fund. Anyone with any savvy knows that no trustee would invest any money from a pension fund, unless it guaranteed a return.
I note reference to the three bears, above, and my only comment on them is that they, more than anyone, have taken the reponsibility of short term funding. Nothing but respect for these gentlemen.
14.) 04 Jan 2017 14:07:23
Billy B all due to respect yours and Gor's opinion on the suspension of soft loans as the ongoing finance option which DK has publicly confirmed will be the main source of finance in the future but where is your proof that they are going to be withdrawn.
If proven to be true then the board and DK in particular really does have a credibility problem
Can you provide the evidence to those of us who are less well informed.
15.) 04 Jan 2017 14:42:54
Time will show it to be true, MOLS.
16.) 04 Jan 2017 15:38:13
let's see billyb, certainly there are issues to be worked through and that is currently taking place as directed by the board. I can assure you I for one don't see DK as the messiah. I do believe however that he and this board have the club's best interest at heart. Now more than ever this is a time to stand behind and support all aspects of the club on and off the park.
17.) 04 Jan 2017 16:09:05
Fd well said and could not agree more. We will have as many downs as we do ups along the way and the return to strength of Rangers will not be quick.
18.) 04 Jan 2017 18:54:08
I hope you prove me wrong, lads, so I will shut up for a while.
19.) 04 Jan 2017 21:51:46
Those that back DK - are ignoring reality and fitting excuses to fuel the delusion. Simple as.
DK has done as much to harm the club as help it.
Picking a fight with Ashley before he even took charge has done unprecedented damage to the club both on and off the park and has guaranteed the club is an unattractive investment to anyone who isn't a diehard fan.
If he had only kept quiet and tried to make a deal before declaring war.
20.) 04 Jan 2017 23:38:29
As Billy b suggests only time will tell if the boards previous and current actions will prove to be the correct ones. I don't see that DK could have gone any other way than he has as many attempts were made by DK to make alliances with MA and sports direct during the change of regime which MA deliberately trashed
It is entirely possible that I am choosing to see this a particular way but based upon what I have read over the years I choose to back DK until there is irrefutable proof that DK and the board have mislead the support.
02 Jan 2017 21:24:14
Rangers are rudderless from the board through the management team through the squad on to the pitch.
We have no core nor direction and we are being conned by DK's hish.
Time for honesty about the standard of our play, the manager's failings and, most of all, do we have two bob!
1.) 02 Jan 2017 21:29:33
I don't think we have any Bob's.

3.) 02 Jan 2017 21:48:46
Why thank you sir. It's taken me this long to find joy and fun after that result. Perhaps you're a wee bit behind that?
Or do I truly amuse you?
4.) 02 Jan 2017 22:18:15
Billy king said what he said to get the support and the control of the club. I believe that he thought that Rangers could win the title then he was going to put in some cash to try and qualify for CL. Its gone wrong. Celtic are miles in front. Forget the result ladt week. Celtic are 19 points clear with a game in hand. Miles away. So he does not see any point in putting cash in now. To challenge Celtic would take 5 or 6 quality players and players like Sinclair cost £3.5 mill. So let's say you need 6 players at an average spend of £2.5 mill each so that's £15mill then those guys want £15 to £20k a week. So another £6mill a year. Now that's just to challenge Celtic. There is no guarantee that Rangers will win the league or qualify for CL even if money is invested so no guarantee of any return on the investment. So is king willing to gift Rangers £25mill with little chance of getting it back? Also if he puts in the £25 mill all of the shareholders benefit so he is paying out the money and everyone else gets a benefit. Is anyone else going to put in big vash? no chance. Rangers already owe about £10mill in loans so that needs to be paid back before any money is spent on tbe team. So king will accept second place for as long as Celtic look dominant and he will see if Rangers can gradually improve and maybe qualify for Europ league which right now is not nailed on. Why do fans just assume that someone will just throw millions and millions at Rangers so they can beat Celtic or prevent Celtic getting 10 in a row? Rangers had £22mill in the bank 4 years ago and blew it. Rangers now need to live within their means that's what everyone else does. Currently Rangers are the team in the SPL with the most debt. Rangers will need another £2mill to get to the end of the season so more debt so do fans just want the club to keep on taking on more and more debt. If tbey keep on doing that then tbey will go bust again. So Rangers fans need to accept that this is the way its going to be forca long long time.
5.) 02 Jan 2017 23:43:13
Any sensible Rangers fan didn't expect to win the league this season. There's no need to write a book about it. These are exceptional times Rangers are 18 months into a 5 year plan. We'll finish 2nd this season and grow from there.
6.) 03 Jan 2017 00:01:09
Any sensible fan would realise that a 5 year plan is a myth. Do you honestly think Warburton would survive for 4 years without winning the title? Also how do you expect to grow finishing 2nd when the only other team who can win the title will finish 1st and get another crack at the champions league.
7.) 03 Jan 2017 00:21:20
Johnnymac, who the feck is Billy king?
8.) 03 Jan 2017 00:26:42
Stewie, so did you expect to win the title this season? If steady growth over the next few years is not the way to go, what is? To me it's not a myth, it's the only way to go.
9.) 03 Jan 2017 00:33:38
No chance Warburton will last 5 years I can think of 5 players who would improve our team straight away Jason Cummings callum Patterson if not injured Chris cadden jonny Hayes and they certainly wouldn't cost 2.5 million as stated above there are players out there that you can find that are better than what we have and can be found if the club starts looking in the right places David king has maid this problem for himself with his statements of him investing money so why should he invest maybe because he promised the rangers fans he would and that's why they backed him when there was other interested parties in our club and got him in the door so fans deserve to ask him where his investment is that he promised and ask for the transparency as for soft loans they will be converted to shares in future so won't have to pay cash back.
10.) 03 Jan 2017 10:20:33
Passionate, understandable but outrageously ill informed comments on here this morning. Of course we will be back, any student of history will tell you that the underdog always returns. The other thing in our favour is the inevtitablility of a Celtic implosion and unravelling as they believe their hype and lack the structure to support, likely to commence around September 2018. Let the Celtic fans enjoy their current success, we will return stronger. Recognise that we are at the early stages of our journey back and rise to the different challenges and questions that it presents.
11.) 03 Jan 2017 10:30:52
Johnnymac. I think War and Peace is shorter than your post. £22 million to which you refer was blown by the crooks Green and co. How do we know King and perhaps other won't invest? We were never going to win the league first time back and Celtic are not as good as others and themselves think. Mullered in the Champions League and it was only 2-1 on Saturday by the way. As someone else has said, injuries haven't helped us.
12.) 03 Jan 2017 11:19:22
Doiger whether it wax 2/ 1 or 10/ 1 celtic are 19 points ahead that's what you need to measure yourself against. It will be 30 by the end of the season.
02 Jan 2017 15:11:12
Being totally honest, we are a mile short of where we should be and, in my opinion, due to many reasons.
Financially we are a mess, mostly for historical reasons I may add.
The board is rudderless, due to mis-information being the basis of their policies. i. e. DK holding back on certain information available.
DK has led the fans on a merry dance hoping that our blind loyalty and funding we be suffice to cover the problems.
The manager is a Yes man that is running out of ideas. His team selections are just to justify " his gang".
Tavernier is only being played for why? MW. We have adapted to 3-5-2 to justify his selection. Fine if Wallace is fit and running, but not just now.
Hodson must play and if we struggle at left back play Halliday, as he is doing hee haw elsewhere.
Another player that must be in our starting line up is MOH. Again singled out for a back up involvement, if that.
I could go on but will finish up with Garner, the man is no use in his current role. Blood and snotters win nothing.
Our manager's approach to the game will win nothing and unless there is a radical overhaul of the board we will deteriorate to a complete nothing of a club. Take away our cash and take a long, cold, hard look at the REAL input of DK, then realise of how we are being taken for a ride.
1.) 02 Jan 2017 15:42:20

5.) 02 Jan 2017 20:10:38
Happy New Year to you Gor and all the punters on here.
We call others sheep, but we have a high proportion of our support that are exactly that.
We really need to waken up, and show DK that we have a mind of our own. I have been pissed off since he orchestrated the season ticket ban, and the damage that done to us. Ashley is a mercenary and I have no time for him, but DK likes to get close to enable him to dip pockets, OURS.
Have a good look at the accounts and you will see our input is frittered away over the year. While him and his friends soft loans are "covered".
We need a sensible business man at the helm then, depending on the outcome of court cases and our financial backing then we would have a stable club. Whether that could be converted into a successful club would be dependent on a good manager being given the backing to nurture a team that would be a credit to the jersey.
6.) 02 Jan 2017 21:18:23
Naz, if you are correct and i'm sure you are, then serious noises by those fans has to be made, the concequences of no action is a very dire future.
7.) 03 Jan 2017 16:28:17
We all know DK is spending all his time trying to get this sports direct/ puma kit deal sorted out which is proving to be very difficult indeed! Surely to god we should have moved something on this by now! Our merchandise shirt sales is big money for our club if it can be sorted out! It most definitely needs to come to a conclusion one way or the other before the end of this season! Common DK what's happening with this?
30 Dec 2016 19:55:50
All I ask is that our team remember who they play for, and show pride in the strips they wear, and then maybe tomorrow, they will be able to say, after a victory hopefully, we are proud to play for Rangers and to wear the colour blue.
1.) 30 Dec 2016 20:04:49
Great post billyb.
2.) 30 Dec 2016 20:42:44
I'm a bit amazed about the negativity about the game. I mean obviously Celtic are favourites but we can at least hope to come away with something from tomorrow.
I would have liked Warbs to be much more positive in the build-up and not go on about how Celtic have a much bigger budget - they had a much bigger budget last year in the Cup semi-final and look what happened there. And didn't MW have a go at Alan Stubbs last year for saying something similar about Rangers paying 4 times the wages of Hibs?
As an example of the negativity, even Derek Johnstone said tonight on Clyde that it was all about budgets. Well, why did he tip Rangers to win the league then? And while budgets are a massive factor, if it really was all about budgets, Leicester would have been lucky to finish midtable in the EPL last year.
3.) 30 Dec 2016 21:45:43
True but look at the quality Leicester brought in.
4.) 30 Dec 2016 22:13:30
Ive heard Warbs saying countless times he hates the idea of putting negative thots into the players heads because if that's what they hear then they'l believe it so his presser seems abit strange. seems to me he's trying to have a ready made excuse if it goes boobs up 2moro.
5.) 30 Dec 2016 22:34:11
I'm with billyb, its an honour and privilege to play for Rangers. If the players are up for it as much as the fans then it could be close. C'mon the Gers.
27 Dec 2016 08:18:55
Stuart McCall makes an excellent point, that escapes the rest of Scottish football, and that was that our demotion to the lower tiers was the best thing that happened to the teams that played there. Many were also saved from the brink and they have the audacity to say we would not be missed.
The verification will be the benefits in the coffers of premier league clubs, this season.
1.) 27 Dec 2016 08:41:31
I made this point a few times during the journey. Our support and the extra tv money virtually wiped out the debt of most teams on the way up. The championship teams got 2 years of full houses.
2.) 27 Dec 2016 09:53:50
Do you have the financial figures to back this up or is it mere heresay?
3.) 27 Dec 2016 10:35:03
I hope they got their share of the tv money as we only got £10k as our share went to the spl as they seen it as compensation considering when we were in the lower leagues we were the biggest draw 890k tuned in to watch us in on third tier game where celtic v Aberdeen pulled in 200k so I hope the spl did not punish our opposition in those games when they were hammering us but I wouldn't put it past them.
4.) 27 Dec 2016 10:49:30
That'll be why McCall did his bit and kept you there a while longer.
To quote Inigo Montoya:
"You keep using the word 'demoted'. I do no not think it means what you think it means. "
5.) 27 Dec 2016 12:52:08
sure there would have been clubs in the lower divisions who appreciated the extra cash, but their saviour`s come on. these guys are used to running their club`s on tight budget`s.
M`coll, when talking up Rangers liquidation, seems to have missed the big picture, the £165M trail of debt they washed their hands off.
money that could have been spent in our schools and hospitals. so for the little winners there were plenty big losers.
6.) 27 Dec 2016 13:56:22
Let's be realistic here. It was a fabricated tax bill which made us uninvestable and ultimately sent us down in the first place.
Cleared of any wrong doing twice I think before HMRC got some joy with the third attempt, which I'm sure still hasn't been resolved after all these years.
Anyone on here who is honest will agree that our club was used as a guinea pig for HMRC to chase EPL clubs for cash, only it didn't go as they hoped.
7.) 27 Dec 2016 15:14:24
Tpp. The Oxford English definition of demotion is " to be reduced to a lower rank or position, normally as a punishment. " Seems a fair assessment to me!
Bb, your first sentence explains exactly why we saved their existence. They run on a tight budget and look for a plum, home cup tie or a player sale to help them survive for several years. During our time in the lower divisions, WE guaranteed that would happen.
As far as your quoted debt figure is concerned, get a grip because it is obvious your green tinted specs need cleaning or, more likely, disinfected.
8.) 27 Dec 2016 17:03:51
That guy Montoya always was a bit of an arse.
9.) 27 Dec 2016 17:44:03
Yeah Billy that's what it's definition is- shame it's not what happened. Go look up the word "new" or the phrase "start from the bottom", emphasis on "start". Whilst there, it'll do you no harm at all to look up "self-deception".
10.) 27 Dec 2016 19:02:24
Well tpp, time for you to re-name yourself. Keeping the same initials you could quite easily have more apt names!
As far as new is concerned, I think pot and kettle come to mind, so just have a little look at history books, closer to home.
11.) 27 Dec 2016 21:44:09
Billy, if you have something to say, say it. Own it.
Tommy45, just like yourself I have followed our team for many years, 55+, and still recall watching Johnny Hubbard, Don Kitchenbrand and Maxie Murray. Then Millar, Brand and Wilson, before you come on the scene, but the main thing we followed them through the good and the bad.
You are 100% correct about Murray, he ripped us apart and all for self gain. The demise of supporters clubs and the massive push for the sale of season tickets is down to him. Cheers mate and who knows what is round the corner.
18 Jan 2017 21:44:36
Bigwull, your post went a wee bit adrift but I agree with what you are trying to get across.
Because of lack of funds and a mis-guided footballing plan, we will drift along as a nonentity of a team, unless we have a radical overhaul.
Throwing money into our club, as it stands, is like flushing it down the pan.
Just one question for all those happy with DK's "plan" and MW's "tactics" and "signings", how we get from where we are to a team capable of competing for the league? Just remebering that getting a suitable merchandising deal is not an overnight cure.

Look Baden Powell's sister, your pathetic posts are not banter, but an attempt to rub it in when this giant is at a low ebb. Just remember that an injured giant will bite you when least expect, so be careful with your actions, as a fall from where you see you are, can be a very precarious drop.

Gor, to your final question, the answer is undoubtedly, YES we are. Sad but true, we are a total joke.

I doubt if we will sign anyone in the January window, but depending on who we release, we may get 1 or 2 further loaned players in.
I find it difficult to see any planning, in where we are going, and really do fear for our future if we do not secure second spot.
Our current board are and will find investment openings very, very difficult and even with second place it will still make it a long shot if we will be able to fund the signing of enough calibre players to have a team to make in-roads in Europe.
Many of the posters here will see this as my usual attack on DK, but I see it more like the realism of our dire circumstances.

Quite correct Bigwull, now that we appear to have a couple of playmakers, coming on loan, and it is obvious that there will be no big signings, play him through the middle, coming from deep. Then, maybe we will get the full benefit of his ability.
Also get Waghorn and Tavernier off the wage bill and get a decent dm on loan. See this season out, hopefully in second place, and see what happens in the courts.
