..they have practised industrial scale cheating for over a decade."@GerryHassan The Scotsman, August 4th 2012 http://www.gerryhass...tegorized/2439/

Excerpt

A whole generation of football journalists grew up with this attitude while the events of the last few months have illustrated the scale of their self-deception. Step forward Jim Traynor, Chick Young and Hugh Keevins. Time and again they have declared Scottish football needs ‘a successful Rangers’ and that any move to put them into Division Three would signal ‘the death of Scottish football’. The hugely respected Archie Macpherson has played into this, going on about the ‘bile’ shown to Rangers as an institution, omitting to acknowledge that they have practised industrial scale cheating for over a decade.

MIH solicitors will have a field with this, I think they should rename this rag The Irishman

Ok. Read it again, then once more.

"They have been aided by a few courageous journalists who decided to spend time investigating the affairs of Rangers and questioning the football authorities. Alex Thomson of Channel Four News, the BBC’s Jim Spence and Stuart Cosgrove in particular are worthy of note. In the longer run in leading up to the events of this summer, the Orwell Prize winning RangersTaxCase website and Phil - The Failed Journalist, earned numerous plaudits."

The names are here.

Hatered rears its head every time those people are given time on air or in print.

Objectionable journalism? Not in the names mentioned.

Employers of theses so called journalists should be taking a long hard look at their work over the past year.

Rangers must be punished severely for sustained and committed wrongdoing. The battalions of their former players who inevitably find employment in the media must also stop blaming sinister and infernal forces for their current predicament. Dozens of Rangers executives could have blown the whistle on the wrongdoing and thus saved them from annihilation. We can only guess at the hundreds of thousands of tax-free reasons they had for staying silent.
