The terrible addiction of the Rangers-hating bloggers

By Bill McMurdo | CRO Editor-at-large

The poisoned pens (or should that be keyboards) of the anti-Rangers bloggers are pouring out more "revelations" about Rangers' finances, this time the conjectured fall-out between Orlit Enterprises and Rangers Football Club Ltd, resulting in the now notorious "winding-up order" which Toxic Thomson, Phil Multi Names and Paul McConville are salivating over.

It's all a bit Groundhog Day, with the usual suspects poring over the minutiae of Rangers' financial transactions, looking for that Pulitzer moment. 2012 revisited with the same fantastic claims and not-so-expert analysis.

Arif Naqvi
We have to accept that this is basically just these saddos' addiction - a kind of financial porn habit where they keep looking for the killer blow against a club they despise with such bigoted venom that never seems to come.

I am led to believe that it was Orlit Enterprises that introduced Arif Naqvi of Abraaj Capital to Rangers. It was reported that Mr Naqvi invested £2 million in Rangers last year.

So Rangers owe Orlit money?

Wow - what a story.

To quote the irrepressible McConville on his blog:-

"With no knowledge of the details of the invoices and the apparent dispute, it would be wrong to take this as a sign that Rangers are in financial difficulty."

You said it, Paul.

But thanks again for your interest in Scotland's biggest team.
