I really don’t know which is sadder – the Daily Record continuing their vindictive campaign against Charles Green, or that they are doing so devoid of the facts.
The latest piece by Gary Ralston which claims that Charles Green is NOT in talks with George Soros to invest in Rangers is a poor piece of journalism, either because the Record are trying to discredit Charles Green or because their journos are just too lazy to dig deeper for facts.
Thankfully, most Rangers fans shun the Record for their blatant hostility to Rangers and many will see through this smear job on Green.
I can assure Rangers fans that Charles Green is actively seeking top-drawer investors for the club and I have seen and have in my possession documentation that rubbishes the Record’s claims.
Rangers supporters can make up their own mind about Green’s involvement at Ibrox but they should do so based on the truth, not upon agenda-driven smears.
The saddest thing about this is that there are people out there who claim to be Rangers supporters but who are actively seeking to dissuade investment into the club from people who could take Rangers to the next level.
I have had cause to praise the Record in the past for some fearless reporting. But this hatchet job on Charles Green is very much proof of falling standards in journalism here in Scotland.
Speaking of doing a number on somebody, today’s lesson is don’t mess with Vincent Tan.
The wee Cardiff owner, who is like a caricature of himself, has bided his time and delivered the ultimate head shot to Mallky Mackay’s future career prospects.
Mackay has allegedly been involved in text conversations which are racist and sexist, apparently including racial slurs on Jews.
I can think of one famous club where this would go down well but it certainly won’t endear him to clubs in the English Prem.
Mackay was showing great promise as a manager and could have followed in the footsteps of famous Scots like Ferguson, Busby and Shankly.
Instead, his indiscretion may see him robbed of this chance and he could end up back in Scotland managing a much smaller team.
Unless, of course, Hamas ever start a football team where he would be a hot favourite for the job.
On a serious note, it is sad to see Mackay’s career disintegrate in such a fashion. His and Iain Moody’s attempts to pass off the texts as “friendly banter” between them are understandable but in the PC world we live in, it’s a lame excuse.
Tan’s revenge on fans’ hero Mackay could provide a wee moral to Rangers fans who are thinking about the possible involvement of big beast investors like George Soros.
Nobody messes with these guys. They take no prisoners and take no crap from anybody.
Exactly what Rangers could be doing with, if you ask me.
