Sports Hotline on Rangers ownership scandal

THE propsect of Green and Whyte at Ibrox was never going to go down well with Rangers fans and that’s exactly how it turned out after revelations involving the two businessman.

Disgraced former Light Blues chief Craig Whyte claims he still owns the club and that Charles Green is a front man for him – while Green has admitted lying to Whyte just to get his hands on the club.

The row has left Rangers fans fearing the worst after already suffering torment over their club’s plight.

Arthur Parker, Torrance, said: “As a Rangers fan how can we trust Green when he previously said he had nothing to do with Whyte? It’s not just Whyte he has conned – he’s conned the Rangers fans too.”

Mark Goldie, Tollcross, said: “Charles Green has been so brazen in saying he kept Craig Whyte sweet or basically shafted. Do you think under the SFA’s fit and proper person rules he should be in charge of the club?

“The type of language he used about offering Craig Whyte Russian girls is just schoolboy stuff.”

Jim Clark, Balornock, said: “I had to laugh at how Charles Green claims to have duped Craig Whyte. Nobody could dupe that man – he’s the biggest rogue who ever set foot on this earth.”

Worried Eddie Easson, Fife, emailed: “Fran Sandaza is gone and Neil Alexander is on his way. Charles Green is having a cull of the big earners and there will be more to follow. Where is the money coming from for the big signings next season?”

But not everyone has got it in for Green, according to Lauchlan McLellan, Kings Park. He said: “Is Mark Hateley trying to land a job at Ibrox with his column on Fran Sandaza? He was kissing Green’s backside.

“Fran Sandaza didn’t say he wasn’t happy. All he said was if he got offered more money he’d look at it which anyone would do. Hateley came back for the 30 pieces of silver for a second spell at Ibrox, so there’s no point in portraying himself as some sort of angel now.”

It was a hoax call from the man known as Tommy the taxi driver that saw Sandaza sacked at Ibrox and two Glasgow cabbies with the same name were keen to distance themselves from the wind-up which cost the Spaniard his Gers career.

Thomas McGregor, Crookston, joked: “I’m Tommy the taxi driver – but not THE Tommy the taxi driver who phoned Sandaza. I got a call from a fellow cabbie when I was in Lanzarote asking if I’d been phoning Rangers players. It’s not true.”

And Tommy Burns, Robroyston, said: “I’m a taxi driver and my name is Tommy but it wasn’t me. But I can’t let Rangers fans say this will be a tainted title for Celtic. Rangers are a two-bob team who won a two-bob league.”

That’s right, Celtic can win a second successive title today in case you’d forgotten. We do talk about football from time to time on the Hotline.

George Quinn, Easterhouse, said: “I was laughing when I read a Rangers fan on the Hotline saying it would be a tainted title while he’s claiming a jumped-up junior league as their 55th title.

“I’ve got five bottles of Bollinger I got for my 50th and can’t wait to open them – we’re going to have some party when we win it. Ally McCoist said you can only beat what’s in front of you and that’s what we’ve done.”

But some fans aren’t happy with the contribution of all the players at Celtic.

David Kenneth, Paisley, said: “I’ve not been impressed with Gary Hooper this season. He’s scored 16 SPL goals in 32 games. His head is on a move and has been since August. We missed the boat by not selling him to Norwich City in January. His only good game was Spartak Moscow away.

“If he goes out the door in the summer, then I’d like Burnley’s Charlie Austin at £4million and Romano Lukaku who wants away from West Brom.”

Alex Cameron, Erskine, said: “There’s a lack of pace up front in the Celtic team. Talking to other fans, we feel Hooper has thrown in the towel and can’t see the team winning the Scottish Cup. His body language tells you so much and his first touch is atrocious.But unfortunately we’ll have to persevere with him because there’s nothing much behind him.”
