ed is this really an end to the current regime's stranglehold of our club and king will claim victory or could there be something about to come out to ruin dave king's plans. I have been happy the last few day's with what has happened but I just get this horrible feeling that something is going to ruin it all. anyway let's hope I am wrong about this. anyway thought's about a new manager I think it would be wrong of us to go for the likes of mccall and billy davies along with your terry butcher and as some ranger's fans have suggested to me walter smith ( some think brining walter in for a couple of season's would steady the ship not for me though) I would like to see the club go for someone like ian cathro who is involved in the spanish league and would probably bring some fresh ideas to our game) anyway roll on friday.

{Ed039's Note - This is not the end of the current regimes stranglehold on Rangers by a long shot due to the complicated set-up of holding/subsiduary companies within Rangers make-up. There is a long, long way to go)

Believable2 Unbelievable12

Dont know aboot fellow bears I would rather have mick ashley look what he has done at newcastle well run bedt free club we bears must remember king and p murray were on old board that was the start of all our troubles worried bear not feeeling good aboot this anyone agree

{Ed039's Note - You do realise that Newcastle are in debt to the tune of about £150m to MIKE ASHLEY alone ...... debt free club my a**e)

Agree0 Disagree0

02 Mar 2015 20:25:40
With all due respect gardner 1965, how do you know this to be true that king won't get the spfl commissioner's blessing as a fit and proper person to run rangers, can we all not be happy we're finally getting shot of these rats instead of people coming on with negative stories of commissioners not passing king fit & proper, when clearly nobody just now can know this to be the case, its total scaremongering amongst our own pessimistic fans who start negative stories

Agree0 Disagree0

02 Mar 2015 20:55:35
King would have notified the sfa of his intentions, and got the green light, but suspect the sfa will want others to make it easier for them to clarify that he is a fit and proper person to be on board as chairman.

Agree0 Disagree0

02 Mar 2015 21:09:02
Op the spfl don't have a fit and proper thing in there association,

Agree0 Disagree0

02 Mar 2015 21:17:08
Does it really matter if SPFL allow Dave King to be a member of the board? Surely Dave King would simply be replaced with a like minded fellow or someone acting on his behalf? I can't see his support diminishing so long as he believes that we are being run properly, transparently and run an investigation into how things have been running since liquidation.

{Ed039's Note - Dave King has said all along if he is not passed "fit & proper" then he will step aside and allow someone else (like minded) to do the job)

Agree0 Disagree0

02 Mar 2015 21:20:40

You sure your not on the stir mate. bit of light at the end of the tunnel and you want to create that bit of doubt. What was your source?

Sfa. Alcohol by the sound of it eh lol lol.

He has good alibis for both failings. But you know what the sfa are like with Rangers. Literally do sfa for us.

Agree0 Disagree1

02 Mar 2015 22:54:45
if this indeed turns out to be true, then it is surefire evidence that 1) the SPFL want Rangers to fail miserably and 2) they also couldn't care less if Scottish football lives or dies

It has become clear this season that without a successful Rangers the Scottish game is heading for the graveyard. Attendances everywhere speak volumes.

Agree0 Disagree0

03 Mar 2015 00:08:10
I ask myself why I'm answering to such a nonsense post, but I have, don't get involved with someone like this chaps, he, s full of pxxh, a troll I think the word is, and sum have fell for it, get a grip,

The SFA is the least of his worries. What does he/they do if the Stock Exchange actually ban him from being on the board?

Agree0 Disagree0

03 Mar 2015 20:29:00
@wee bill. Just a thought. Where would Rangers be right now if it wasn't for Scottish football. I don't recall interest in Rangers from any other country.

{Ed039's Note - Funny that being a football team based in Scotland ....... I believe we have honestly found the nomination for the newly created "stoopidist post o' the day" sponsored by B.B.)

Fly fifer mr king said if he was not allowed on the board he would just put a family member in his place mate, as it was his family company that bought the shares, I think mr king will be okay, but like I say he has it covered eh.

Just been told by an ex-Ranger (he never gives anything away usually) that I will never guess the name of next manager.
I went through the names being flung about and some weird ones ( Lennon, MON0 and he said not even close.

Believable1 Unbelievable8

Stewart McColl has just said on TV he is happy with his position with the national team, but has not ruled out a return to our club, the bookies have him as favourite, and it's not often they are wrong.

{Ed001's Note - if that was true then they wouldn't give odds on anyone else! They are usually wrong. They want you to spend your money betting on the favourite that doesn't come in.}

Agree0 Disagree0

02 Mar 2015 18:41:42

02 Mar 2015 19:22:44
Ed, on the manager question who do you honestly think will be the next glasgow rangers manager and do you think the new manager will be appointed before the end of the season?

{Ed001's Note - I have no idea who it will be, I just wouldn't trust the bookies. It wasn't so long ago they had Ribery odds on to join Liverpool, and David Moyes odds on to take over at Spurs etc.}

Agree0 Disagree0

02 Mar 2015 19:32:59
What do you all think of Ray wilkins, good pro carries great respect, wealth of experience, loved his time at rangers, I would sound him out,

Heard fae a good source it mite it will b d mcinnes any thaughts fellow bears

Agree0 Disagree0

02 Mar 2015 20:47:52
Can't see McInnes leaving where he is at the moment.
He has 2 years on his contract to run for a start.
He's built a good side capable of winning honours and has the prospect of European football next season.
His club are/will be debt free with (possibly) a new stadium in the pipeline.
He said himself he's only just beginning with Aberdeen.
I think he'll head for England when he wants to move on.

Agree0 Disagree0

02 Mar 2015 21:11:45
Ed the bookies have got to give you odds on others. Ie bookies. For people that like to take a gamble, I've never heard of a poor bookie

Agree0 Disagree0

02 Mar 2015 21:58:35
Ed ime in agreement with the not all favourites win, cause if they did there would be no such a thing as a bookmakers, because they would only be giving there money away, and it's only places like our club that happens eh, oh wait a minuet, maybe sommers and leach and llambias had opened a bookies, only giving money away to friends, and associates, lol lol.

Agree0 Disagree0

03 Mar 2015 08:06:32
I would take Walter smith in a heartbeat

Agree0 Disagree0

03 Mar 2015 12:50:37
Is it Rumplstiltskin? Not many would have guessed his name.

Agree0 Disagree0

03 Mar 2015 14:15:20
I think its a foreigner, maybe German, maybe Dutch,

Agree0 Disagree0

04 Mar 2015 12:30:59
nice guy ray wilkins is he has not been a sucess at any of the coaching posts he has had and suffers a bit from vino collapso

{Ed001's Note - he has done alright with the Jordanian team, they performed above expectations in the Asian Nations. Despite the way the Asian Federation treated them.}

Agree0 Disagree0

02 Mar 2015 14:45:22
Stuart McCall distances himself from the rangers managers post. According to the BBC Stuart McCall is looking for a position that enables him to work with the Scotland team simultaneously.

Believable4 Unbelievable2

02 Mar 2015 15:42:35
Not a big deal as McInnes is the first choice I believe and personally I would take Cathro ahead of McColl if Magath is overseeing the rebuild as Tech Director

i am george

Agree0 Disagree1

02 Mar 2015 16:30:49
As you know I am george I'm also a massive fan of ian cathro and would prefer him over stuart mccall to be the next rangers manager/head coach, I also think the appointment of felix magath as our technical director to oversee everything at mp would be a masterstroke but here comes the but, my 1st choice as our next rangers manager is and always has been billy davies, its all about opinions and this is mine, a good appointment would also be current brentford duo mark warburton & davie weir

Agree0 Disagree0

02 Mar 2015 16:36:43
I half agreem McInnes is first choice.

Magath and Cathro would be an unbelievable duo but in scottish football you need scottish football experience.

Paul le guen springs to mind.

Agree0 Disagree0

02 Mar 2015 18:24:05
Stewart McColl has just said on TV he is happy at scotland job but never ruled out a return to our club, if asked

Stock Exchange rules are that anything that may affect the share price should be past to the SE before it is circulated.
An honourable board such as we have would not want to do anything underhand of course.

Agree0 Disagree0

01 Mar 2015 21:00:32
EGM has to go ahead anyway as it has been called and there has to be an announcement re the outcome. I don't think it is official until it is announced at the EGM.

Maybe Somers will want to work a notice period?
I hope he clean up the silvery trail he leaves behind him.

Agree0 Disagree0

28 Feb 2015 19:41:09
Heard another abysmal rumor that former player Filip Sebo has been named as a potential transfer target if we don't gain promotion. Hopefully no truth to the rumor but thought I would post as it wouldn't surprise me with the way things currently are at our club

Believable1 Unbelievable11

28 Feb 2015 22:08:44
I hope not he hasn't played for the last 2 years but when we win this EGM I really don't think this is the type of player that the new regime will be looking for somehow

Agree0 Disagree0

01 Mar 2015 09:35:06
Considering the players we have the now someone with his heart n commitment is maybe what we need show the rest of these socalled football players what it means to play for the mighty rangers

According to Big DJ on RC, Blue Pitch Holdings are trying to sell their share holding.
Wonder who will purchase them. If a Rangers supporter buys them it is a done deal. If Ashley buys them it is same as before, but need to wait for vote.

Believable2 Unbelievable0

27 Feb 2015 20:03:04
If someone buys them on Ashley's behalf- he can't increase his own holding. I reckon he is BP/Marg anyway. Probably tring to get rid of the evidence by selling up. Who knows though.

Agree0 Disagree0

27 Feb 2015 20:42:42
Keysersoze. I think the secret shareholders are charlieboy and Ahmed, there trying to get out, probably to avoid us from finding out there true identities, some day though someday, eh.

Agree0 Disagree0

27 Feb 2015 20:43:22
Please god nobody buys them. If sold tracing the shadowy owner will become virtually impossible. We have the votes necessarywithout them. LLet's identify them before ridding ourselves of the parasites

Agree0 Disagree0

27 Feb 2015 21:33:23
I think they are Ashley too, I also think Charlie was Ashley's front man. Ashley knew the rules and that his own holding would be limited so he bought them through proxy's. It explains why the directors danced to his tune at every turn.I think he financed the buy out and Charlie sold the IPO at an over inflated 70p simply on Ashley's reputation in the city of London, it certainly wasn't on Charlie's that's for sure.

Agree0 Disagree0

27 Feb 2015 22:16:19
If rumours are true that Ashley green and white started the whole chain of events itwill eventually come out somehow, Craig White if duped by green will want reprisals and will whistle Dixie in court, and they will all tumble like dominoes

Agree0 Disagree0

27 Feb 2015 22:49:00
Dougdunlop. I hope to see the whole show in a courtroom mat, it will make interesting viewing eh, the way things are going I would love to see everyone of these people, from whyte, right through to Ashley sitting in a scottish court, to hear them all trying to blame each other for this big fraud, allegedly, lol.did you see what I done there? Stuck the word allegedly at the end, so as they don't sue me lol in second thoughts bring it on, I have what I am wearing, lol, I wonder if any of them can say that (I have what ime wearing eh) shower of bar stewards.

Heard from TWO reliable sources today that teewdledum is going to support his brother and will be voting for King with his 6%.

The same person that told me 2 days before tweedledumber was going to resign was one of sorces so I am amazed but I believe him, it would account for the 60% I was saying we will achieve

Heres hoping this is true

Agree0 Disagree0

27 Feb 2015 17:19:55

They are still the same no matter what they do. so what's the reason? they are still in MA camp so what's the game? there is never anything simple anymore when its about our club, I, m afraid.

South side bear nobody can be 100% sure who the next rangers manager is going to be, its all rumours and that's why this is a rumours page so I do accept someone has passed on a rumour to you that stuart mccall is going to be the next rangers manager, I've passed on rumours I've heard myself on these pages mate

Agree0 Disagree0

Agree0 Disagree0

26 Feb 2015 15:26:51
I know I might get slaughtered for this, but I think McColl and butcher being giving jobs in the background as they know lots of people involved in lower leagues in England, they could find us players good enough to get us to top league, giving us some berthing space until we get our financial side sorted out, but I don't fancy either for the managers job.

Agree0 Disagree0

26 Feb 2015 20:38:48
OP?

Is it RS McColl?

26 Feb 2015 20:44:40
100% SOURCE NOT QUOTED AS USUAL

Its all over the back page of this morning's sun newspaper that rangers are wanting ex bolton, ex palace boss dougie freedman as the next rangers manager, freedman is only on a contract as nottingham forest manager until the end of the season, wouldn't be my no.1 choice but he's a decent coach and doing well currently at forest, what do you think ed?

{Ed001's Note - he is doing well at Forest right now, but I remain to be convinced he is a good manager. Starting well is one thing, but long term he seems to struggle badly. I would not want him if it was me. It is very likely he will be available in the summer though, as Forest are in utter turmoil behind the scenes, no one even knows whether the owner is selling or not.}

Our next manager is not one that we should be taking chances with - that role has been done and dusted. We need a 'captain' that will steady the ship and stear us into calmer waters.

Agree0 Disagree1

25 Feb 2015 13:53:07
I don't want this guy regardless of his performance for 2 reasons. He is largely inexperienced. He may have a few seasons under his belt with a few decent clubs but he had no longevity and in not entirely sure if he has a footballing philosophy with regards to the youth team and style of football.

That being said, he also has no experience of scottish football management.

My preference would be cathro and although he has be experience. We do know he has a footballing philosophy and will use this model from the youth upwards.

Rangers need an overhaul and we need someone that has either a view to restructuring from the youth levels up wih a good scouting network. Or substantial experience and longevity with the same club for over 3 years.

Agree0 Disagree0

25 Feb 2015 18:01:38
never in the creation of christ do we want him he is on par with butcher but not as bad as davis

25 Feb 2015 22:59:31
Can I just say I think kenny McDowell has done reasonably well in his tenure so far. Take out the results which were on the back of a torrid removal of ally McCoist. He only lacks the ability to fire up his players but tactics and team selection has been spot on. Hutton has been decent and looks a good wee player. That other young player that scored a cracker looks a great talent (sorry I can't remember his name i'm tired) faure has looked great in his 2 games. The only things I want to see happen now is gasparotto and temps getting a run of games.

Temps playing behind the striker with vucinic in the left and law on the right. Hutton and that young player behind them. Boyd up front. With Wallace (needs a kick up the Anus for his recent form) gasparotto, mccregor and faure on the right.

I would stick with Robinson with kelly on the bench.

Thoughts?

This is terrible news fellow bears. There is something lurking behind the scenes before Tuesday morning and I believe Ashley will be enjoying this news. Best bet is to shut up shop and buy kilmarnock or st Maureen and start again and not pay any debts back again. This would work.

The Grange Tower Bridge Hotel where the EGM will now be held has a maximum capacity of 850 in its largest facility, the Trinity Suite. This is still fairly small so I feel all the warnings against travel should still stand these mugs are dying for an excuse to call it off.

They have now cancelled the egm booking

17 Feb 2015 18:14:59
That's the EGM "reverting" to Ibrox, exactly where it should have been held in the first place. These spineless dithering idiots are surely the worst board of directors I've ever heard of, never mind at Rangers.
Them and their predecessors have bungled almost every decision they have had to make, totally incompetent, the lot of them. Lambias n Leech are like Simmers supposedly experienced directors but Lambias has made a clown of the original EGM anouncement and is why the location was a secret yesterday because he should know that the AIM should be informed first, basic stuff. Add that to the leaked fairy tales to the press he doesn't look that great either, Simmersis a bufoon how he holds directorships iI will never know, it must be easier than I thought.
One good thing at least their incompetence has saved it being the first Rangers GM to be held in London in order for the spineless clowns to avoid some well deserved heckling, totally pathetic. According to their own RNS PR notices they are doing a wonderful job

Every 'gers fan you talk to and every fan who posts in here like myself are very keen & excited about who is going to be the next rangers manager, ed, if it's ok I would like to ask on here to all who post in & of course yourself ed who there first, second & third choices would be for the next glasgow rangers manager, my top 3 in order of preference would be-1.Billy Davies, 2.Ian Cathro & 3.Derek McInnes, I'm looking forward to this healthy debate of opinions, cheers ed!

I really don't understand why there is so much hype about Billy Davies. He doesn't have a great record. He should not even be in the frame for this.

Ian Cathro has just signed a new deal with Valencia, so I don't think we have any chance of luring him either. He is assistant at a top team in La Liga, coming to a team with no infrastructure and playing in the second tier of Scottish football would be a massive step down.

I would love Derek Mcinness. He struggled with Bristol but has done some amazing things with the Scottish clubs he has managed. Failing this I think McCall would be the next best option. He always has the clubs best interest at heart. He realised he had taken Motherwell as far as he could and walked away to give them the best chance of progressing, he did the same thing at Bradford. Shows real character.

Another couple of names I think could do the job are Terry Butcher or Jim Jefferies. Not ideal but I wouldn't be unhappy with either.

I also think getting Magath in as head of Murray Park would be a great appointment.

Agree1 Disagree1

16 Feb 2015 11:46:22
Mcinnes. Cathro be happy with either

Agree1 Disagree1

16 Feb 2015 11:49:14
I certainly would rule out butcher and jeffrey, we should be aiming higher than them 2

Agree2 Disagree0

16 Feb 2015 12:07:55
1)Thomas Tuchel, 2)Eddie Howe, 3)Alex Mcleish any of these would do.

{Ed001's Note - would Eddie Howe have any interest? I very much doubt it.}

Agree1 Disagree0

16 Feb 2015 12:10:33
Derek McInnes, Stuart McCall and just to be different, Nigel Clough. I really think McInnes would be the right guy though, as long as he was given time, ie more than 5 years.

Agree1 Disagree0

16 Feb 2015 13:50:14
1st Mcinness 2nd McLeish 3rd Mcall I would also like to see Ian Ferguson as part of the coaching team

Agree1 Disagree0

16 Feb 2015 13:55:00
I would love a Butcher and McCall partnership. Butcher got a bum deal at Hibs, what he did at Motherwell 2005 Scottish League Cup final, and then Inverness was astonishing 09/2010 season By the end of March, Butcher had guided his team from 16 points behind league leaders Dundee, to 4 points ahead and top of the Scottish First Division. As part of the push for promotion in 2009/10, ICT went on an unbeaten away run in the league that continued through the entire 2010 calendar year, culminating in a 1-1 draw against Hearts at Tynecastle on 18 December. In 2012/13 season Butcher received a Manager of a month award for a second time in November, he led Calley to a second place by Christmas. Butcher has put winning sides together on peanuts. Butchers is the man we need.

Agree0 Disagree2

16 Feb 2015 16:12:50
1st McInness - can spot a player and build a team.

2nd - McLeish - Built a decent team and style on a limited budget while downsizing was going on.

3rd - (dreaming) Michael Laudrup with Brian Laudrup as assistant.

Agree1 Disagree0

16 Feb 2015 16:35:28
I think Michael Laudrups contract is up at the end of the season. Brian might persuade him haha.

As far as long shots go, what do you guys think of Ole Gunner Solskjaer or Sami Hyppia? Both struggled in England but are young and hungry and actually use tactics. Which would make a nice change.

Agree1 Disagree0

16 Feb 2015 17:08:24
Would take Solksjaer in a heart beat, although his Cardiff time was rough his team did put together good passing football they just couldn't see out results or score enough goals. But what I liked most was he is gutsy he speaks his mind.

{Ed001's Note - I could introduce you to a lot of fans at Cardiff that would disagree about the words good and football being involved in any description of Ole's time there.....}

Yeh Strachan great manager. Just the fact he was also a great manger for Celtic also don't think it would go down well

Agree0 Disagree0

17 Feb 2015 00:19:12
I think McInnes is the favourite of the football people at the moment.
McCall is my standout as he has everything we need including freedom of contract as he's not at a club at the moment but what about Tugay? He's been there, done that and been Captain and assistant manager/coach in some big setups so why not give him a call?

Agree0 Disagree0

16 Feb 2015 22:23:26
Dunc, you say ian cathro has signed a new contract as assistant manager of valencia which is correct but what you obviously didn't say is that in cathro's contract it states that cathro can leave for nothing if an offer comes for him to be his own man ie.manager/head coach of a club in his own right, its a thank you from valencia & their manager who thinks the world of cathro, this is fact dunc so I really do think there would be a chance that cathro would relish the chance of rebuilding rangers as our new head coach and the challenge it would provide for him, cathro has always said he wants to be the no.1 at the right football club for him

Agree1 Disagree0

17 Feb 2015 04:38:15
JR

You seem to have more exclusives than the Sun! That said were this to be an actual fact it would be a good option as I hjave a feeling even with the King era starting at Ibrox on 5th March 2015 that McInnes might not want to leave what he has created at Aberdeen, were Milne to ensure him that money is there to match Celtic signings wise he will stay at Aberdeen I think. I would love him to stay.

The option of Cathro for me is a potential due to what he has achieved coaching wise and development of youth at Valencia. He has thtential to be a Mourinho. We may end up with one of the best young coaches in Europe.

Again I can't say if you are correct but if that is the case I think he will be in the top 5 people King will look at Ferguson I can imagine will know all about him.

Still McInnes first for me if we can get him

i am george

17 Feb 2015 11:21:21
Hi JRT,

For me its a little more complicated.

If we get promoted:
1. Derek McInnes, 2. Stuart McCall 3. Ian Cathro

If we stay in division:
1. Ian Cathro, 2.Stuart McCall 3.Derek McInnes

I believe if we stay in this division Ian Cathro's eye for young talent would help us build a younger team to take up with us.

There is also the option Rangers are looking at a technical Manager and a coach.

If we got a foreign tech manager like Magath or Wotte then I'd like a Rangers man in beneath like McCall or McInnes

If the Tech manager was a Rangers man already like Butcher then I would go for Cathro.

Agree0 Disagree0

17 Feb 2015 12:33:49
good post bluegenius

i agree a different approach would be wise but the only thing I would say is continuity I think we will need a man in to build from scratch but to stay in charge and whilst cathro in lower league is as you point out advantageous I still think whomever they choose will be the man LONG TERM so they will disregard the league that we are in so likely mcinnes all the way for me then mccoll if mcinnes is not coming for whatever reason

cathro would not be bad either in my view

i am george

Agree0 Disagree0

17 Feb 2015 20:27:46
Not sure, even with new board and finance available, McInnes would take the job.
He's already said he's only just starting at Aberdeen and has 2 years to run on existing contract.
Aberdeen now debt free and looking to move to new stadium. Built a team that can challenge for trophies.
No reason to throw all that away other than loyalty to Rangers.
My guess is that he'll head for England when he calls it a day up north, assuming continued success, which I don't doubt.
Similarly, I don't think McLeish would move from Belgium.
To be honest, without new board and finance you can forget all of the above.

Agree0 Disagree0

17 Feb 2015 22:58:47
Notice my reply didn't get through ed am I not allowed a truthful say if it was just missed by mistake I said Rangers are having a laugh the state there in no one will touch you but mc kinnis will get the job eventually but the problems all need to be sorted first

Slight Issue with J R Tennent last post, he's talking in Future tense and Past tense. In one line he mentioned "will seek advice of SAF and WS" (future tense) and in the next line mentioned "they have strongly advised" (past tense)
However I wouldn't mind having Derek McInnes as Rangers next manager.

Agree0 Disagree0

15 Feb 2015 15:42:38
It's only "straight from the horses mouth" if it came from McInnes.
He's under contract til 2017 and already stated he doesn't want the job.

McD has been forced to go against supersalarys pals gand play 2 players IN poaition with ability

Faure banned for 'Cakegate' and his crosses are so much better than idiot Black plus a DEFENDER in defence instead of lump wood and we look like a team for first time in ages

george- I think you know the answer. Until we have a new board and a decent manager, McCulloch, Black, Law and Foster will always be brought back in, but like I said to you before, 13 are out of contract in the summer and a new boss has to get the long knives out and get shot of most of them whilst trying to find some replacements with a bit of talent on lower wages too.

no one in their right mind would think about applying for the rangers job at the moment with what is going on at the club and I suspect that unless ashley and his cronies are gone then we will struggle to get anyone interested in our club. I am beginning to lose all hope that this mess will be sorted and unless king win's the egm vote then we are only going to get worse. how a team of players that we have could not beat raith rovers ( no disrespect to rovers should I add) at ibrox is shocking the only player with pass marks at the weekend was the new boy vuckic who worked his socks off and deserved his goal. so unless ashley has some sort of grand master plan that he is keeping secret for now then there is no way I will be back at ibrox until he is gone along with tweedle dee and tweedle dum ( the easedales) along with somers and lama man llambias. can I also add having spoke to some brentford fan's last night on social media they are all in agreement that mark warburton is going nowhere next season wether they win promotion or not.

I don't deny that there is definately an issue with fitness and discipline at murray park, but surely the players must take full responsibility for being unfit or overweight.

09 Feb 2015 13:44:24
David I said on here when we were talking about boyd coming back that if he could be a good signing, as he was banging them in at killie, but I also suggested he was playing out his skin at killie as he was looking for a new contract, I said as long as he does not go back to being the lazy fat guy that he was first time round we would do ok by signing him, but alas my fear has been realised as he is now an overweight, fat, lazy striker, hindsight would be a wonderful thing eh.

Sorry BIGWULL but your post is wishful thinking, with an EGM only weeks away this board will do nothing. They defo won't put McDowell on leave because they just don't care they know their getting the boot, their desperate announcement on RNS to the stock exchange attacking King and hosting the EGM in London is a clear sign their struggling and going to extraordinary length to cheat us all of change. This can never be forgotten. I have sent my letter of complaint to Andrew Kendrick, who is David Somers boss at Ace Life asking why a man who shows such poor acumen and governance can represent the Ace Life board and allow his actions to drag their good company name in to the media spotlight.

Yes he scored lots of goals at, first but gradually found himself getting less and less game time, if he started he was subbed, the guy could not last the pace, and on his return looked fit for a few gamesn, then was back to blowing out his arse after a short time, if he is your ideal striker you don't think the same way as me. mate.
