Cool Neil. Time will tell if any one on the board wants more shares.

John Halsted is the name your looking for.

I read somewhere that he wanted to be more involved with the club than what he is doing now hence why rumours flying around that he wants to invest more into club.

With a portfolio worth around 7bn it can't hurt to see what he can offer?.

I would love to think that this John Halsted rumour is true . The board have done a fantastic job getting the club back on track after the " charlatan years " but I just feel that an injection of serious money could see us really kick on, under this manager. For all Celtic have been getting money in from the CL and sale of players it was Desmond splashing the cash to get Rodgers the first time and some serious signings that really pushed them in front of us, both on the field and financially. Without going daft, if we had someone with real financial clout behind us it would make a huge difference .

he would need to rename Ibrox or something similar.

I suppose any investment that might put us in pole position to win the league titles will give us a better chance to gain CL monies. If we've a chance of any cash investment then surely it would make sense to let most if not all player contracts lapse when they're due to expire. Guys like Barasic and Lundstrum still need to show a level of performance to attract other clubs when the time comes. Hence any suitable investment if it's there, should be used where and when needed to replace such players.

Cash investment I'm the club doesn't immediately translate to a transfer kitty.

FFP means we are restricted in terms of what we can spend due to the low level of income that we generate (in comparative terms) .

This is probably the real reason we haven't seen major investment in either us or Celtic.

There are clever ways around FFP as long as you don`t kick the arse out of it, there must be, otherwise the State owned clubs couldn`t invest the money they do. I`m not saying put in hundreds of millions but there could be a chance to increase sponsorship deals, sponsor the stadium etc that would allow him to put in a few million. Desmond does it through Magners. We can`t attract major sponsors because of the league we`re in but if there was someone who wanted to pay better money for this regardless of the league it would start us on a path that would hopefully mean more CL qualifications and wins when we get there . Speculate to accumulate, unfortunately we don`t have the cash to do the initial speculating at the moment.

Clever ways round about it? Yeah Everton tried that ?‍♂️ Man City have 115 charges trying that wsl you just can’t throw money at a club anymore.

There’s always ways around the law wsl as long as ye don’t go too far, as u say.

How much could we realistically expect for renaming the stadium?

Say 10 year deal, what is the going rate?

Not atall John, never break the law, that’s my motto ?
Naw, there’s ways around these rules while stil operating within the law.

Stadium sponsorship and extra sponsors on strips as example, sponsoring training tops perhaps.

All ways of generating income u otherwise wouldn’t have.
If someone with connections to the club wants to sponsor certain things then that’s a way around the problem of financial restraints.

I would do it with guidance of legal experts and stick within what they advise.

how can you work around laws with breaking them (rules are laws) .
Last time we took legal expert guidance we ended up with EBT and well the rest is history.
someone buying more shares doesn't put money in the club it puts money in the pocket of whoever he buys the shares from.

Did we not vote to allow more shares being made which brings the existing shares worth less but brings money into club, this can only be done to a certain extent that’s why loans can be transferred into shares, am just guessing please fire back if I am talking single fish I won’t take it heart troops.

Stormtrooper there are more to the issues with EPL clubs than just a shareholder investing a few million in the club in a clever, legal way. Man City have all they charges against them by the EPL but UEFA won`t touch them . let's wait and see if the EPL have the balls to do anything . If thev`ve won all they trophies and made all that money and then get hit by a fine no matter how big they`ll say it was worth it and move on . It seems ridiculous to me that City, balance the books, invest in the local infrastructure and make huge profits and get done for FFP when others post losses year after year and they are deemed okay.
