You Talk Some Amount of Shite, Phil

The name Phil MacGiollaBhain will be familiar to many Rangers fans. The self-proclaimed "journalist" is a notorious Rangers hating bigot who regularly refers to you and I as Nazis, racists and 'the Klan' amongst other terms.

His ability to whip his similarly obsessed Celtic fans into a frenzy over Rangers is second to none (and definitely not a ploy simply to generate sales for his book).

In the current times of financial uncertainty at the club, of course, every player not only at Rangers but also in world football has their price; Moshni is no different. In fact, it’s fair to say that this is the season on which to make a proper judgement on the French-Tunisian.

HMRC - guilty?

by Alan Clark | Deputy Editor

One day, the Rangers supporters will have answers for what has happened to their football club. One day, the individuals responsible will be brought to task and heads will roll.

The timescale for when that day will arrive is unknown.

In a week where it was re-confirmed that Rangers' old company, RFCplc, had administered Employee Benefit Trusts within the confines of tax law, questions are being asked by fans yet again about what has unfolded in the past few years.
