  1. Alex Thomson case dropped An odd footnote to the Rangers saga was resolved on Tuesday. Strathclyde Police confirmed that their investigation into an alleged threat made by an unnamed Scottish journalist against Alex Thomson, Chief Correspondent of Channel 4 News, has closed after no evidence was found. A Strathclyde Police spokesperson told The Daily Telegraph: “An investigation was carried out but we were unable to establish any evidence of criminality.” http://www.telegraph.co.uk/sport/football/teams/rangers/9357195/Rangers-problem-dumped-on-laps-on-Scottish-Football-League-clubs.html Liar.
  2. http://blogs.channel4.com/alex-thomsons-view/rangers-apology/2041 A facet of the long-running Rangers story has been the creative use of the internet and IT to comment on the saga from all sides, from all kinds of fans. For some time I have been collecting such examples as they represent often highly-creative comment on the issues. This morning I posted one such example which shows a statue of former Rangers player and director, John Greig, “walking away” from Ibrox. Mr Greig – along with other former Rangers directors was recently cited in a legal Tribunal ruling by the Scottish Football Association. Central to their ruling was that key directors – including Mr Greig – had not acted properly whilst the club was mismanaged. This covers the time when Mr Greig was at the club, before he resigned. Therefore, I took this spoof video purely as a comment on John Greig “walking away” from Ibrox and nothing more. However, it is true that this statue commemorates those who died in the Ibrox Park disaster. Some have interpreted this as disrespectful to their memory. I was aware of the significance of the statue, but did not interpret that this image was designed to make a cruel link between those that lost their lives and the recent Rangers story. I immediately deleted the tweet and issued an unreserved apology – but Twitter is not always the best place for thorough explanation and apology –so I wanted to set out exactly what happened in my blog. I completely and unreservedly apologise for any offence caused.” John DC Gow ‏@JohnDCGow Re: Ibrox disaster statue @alextomo at 10.23 on twitter says, "I was not aware." Blog at 13:06 says "I was aware."

  7. Gordon Smith will be appointed director of football at Rangers, BBC Scotland has learned. Smith last held the position of Scottish Football Association chief executive and previously played for the Ibrox club from 1977-1980. Craig Whyte bought Rangers from Sir David Murray at the tail end of last season and is in the process of re-shaping the club's hierarchy. Smith's role will be to assist manager Ally McCoist in his debut season. http://news.bbc.co.uk/sport1/hi/football/13818028.stm
  8. New Rangers owner Craig Whyte has axed chairman Alastair Johnston and director Paul Murray after they refused to resign from the Ibrox board. And as he exerts full control over the club he bought earlier this month in a £52.5million deal, chief executive Martin Bain, finance director Donald McIntyre and director Dave King are also on their way out of the club. Bain and McIntyre have been suspended on full pay as an internal enquiry is launched into contractual issues, believed to include on what terms any severance would be based on. http://www.eveningtimes.co.uk/sport/editor-s-picks/power-rangers-1.1103230
