Badly managed over the last 10 years by the looks of it.

Watched the STV 6 00 news this evening and they showed a clip of Whyte announcing about the intention to go into administration. He was greeted by a hostile bunch of rangers fans! 1 question I'd like the answer to is did Whyte know 100% what was ahead of him when he took over the club? He has some job on his hands now to turn this club around from it's current position!

He always knew that this was a possible outcome, he said so himself.

It's Andy Goram I feel sorry for. How is he going to break the news to himself?!


Gazza is going to break it to him with a can of lager, some chicken, fishing rod, a Newcastle shirt and a dressing gown.

Fair enough but in hindsight was the man mad to take over a club that was in such a poor financial position?

He bloody well engineered it intentionally.

Seriously Jelle, and I said it before on here, how come a club that can't afford it's day to day running costs can afford to put it's more sellable players on long term contracts paying them £15m more and paying agents £1m?

Answer: Because he knew that Rangers would have gone not admin by then and he'd get a good price for them.

This is what I posted in the Rangers thread in October 2011

'It looks very likely that Mr Whyte will put Rangers into Administration if they lose their 'water tight' case against the taxman. Whyte is in the media saying 'Rangers are in crisis'.

The current 10 point gap over Celtic seems to be allowing their next move'

Well judging by the scenes outside Ibrox this evening the fans smell a rat with Whyte IMO. Why would anyone want to take over any football club in such a dire financial position in the first place? Certainly your answer Bobby makes a lot of sense.

Speaking to my boss earlier (accountant) and he reckons there is a possibility Whyte could make a fortune out of this, there is just so much money unaccounted for.

Where exactly has the money for the season tickets gone?

How did this guy get approved for ownership.

Most importantly, if Rangers go into liquidation, as long as Whyte can hold onto Ibrox then he can lay claim Rangers 2012 who will be debt free and worth feckin millions on their day of inception.

I wonder will the Rangers fans stand by the club and keep going to the matches because when they played Dundee Utd Ibrox was half empty.

3 years ago against DUFC in a similar cup game, we got a similar crowd.

Don't read too much into that.

Kind of sad to see it happen to any club

It's a valid analogy.

The few sea lion laughs that your answer elicited from people - that probably can't formulate their own worthwhile replies - notwithstanding.


No it's not!

Atheism is lack of belief in God.

it depends on others believing in God just as much as me not believing Superman is real is dependant on people who actually think he's a real person!

You're analogy is bad!
