Celtic Diary Wednesday May 10: Resolution 12: Relax…

It’s going to be a lovely summer.

You see, sometimes when you get caught up in something, its difficult to see it from any other viewpoint but your own, or at least the view that you support.

With Resolution 12 it should be simple. There is evidence of corruption, collusion and cover ups that for those of us who like to be straightforward cannot see past immediate action.

Lets consider the outcome should we attempt to force the issue.. and maybe we can understand why its taken so long.

The SFA and the SPFL will be shown to be not fit for purpose. Possibly after a long and exhausting investigation. They would all have to be replaced, which in itself would be a long and exhausting process.

Maybe all of this has already taken place, and there are certain figures in position ready to implement a coup d’etat ?

 

To force the resignations of those currently running the game, which would be a relatively quick and painless operation, Β  requires evidence to back up the claims of, for want of a better word, the prosecution.

Would it not be better if that evidence came from an external source, not within Celtic FC, or its shareholders/supporters , or any other club for that matter?

Would it not be better if that evidence was presented behind the scenes to those complicit with a wee note attached saying “resign, and we’ll say no more about it ” ?

Evidence gathered from recent court testimonies, given on oath, Β and no doubt those still to come, prove beyond all doubt that there was corruption and collusion in 2011. Even now, six years down the line, the governing bodies concerned are trying to pretend it didnt happen, not even commenting on the allegations, itself a sign of unaccountability and a lack of transparency.

To bring an issue of this magnitude into the public domain, one must be certain of one’s foundations.

Maybe evidence given on oath in a court of law in a completely unrelated case is going to form the basis of the demise of the SFA/SPFL

If you check the tweets from James Doleman during the trial of Craig Whyte, it appears that the core of Resolution 12, the granting of a UEFA licence to Rangers in 2011 whilst they had an overdue payable to HMRC , has been confirmed.

Other interesting facts have also emerged. Nothing that hadn’t previously been rumoured, nothing that hadn’t been suspected, and nothing that counters anything that those behind resolution 12 firmly believed.

What it seems to add up to is that the game in Scotland, or business, if you prefer, had been run for a period purely to protect one club from financial meltdown, a meltdown caused by that club brazenly flouting the rules of the game, and more importantly, the law of the land.

At the very least, its deserving of a full independent inquiry.

Given that the last time such an enquiry took place, there is an understandable reluctance to go through the process again. Lord Nimmo Smith, who we believe to be in negotiations with an external decorating company for possible sponsorship of an all weather white paint, simply followed instructions last time round in a somewhat transparent attempt to pretend nothing untoward had taken place.

This time, it has to be right.

 

By waiting for the trial currently taking place in Glasgow’s High Court, Peter Lawwell and the Celtic board, as well as the boards of other clubs, may well have played a blinder.

A few moments in the company of Peter Lawwell conforms that he isn’t daft. Believe it or not, you are also left with the impression that he does what he thinks is right for Celtic.

It may not always be the popular choice, but its what he thinks is right. So far, its working

Despite what you may think, I assure you he has particular love for the SFA.

But in politics, one must choose one’s weapons and the time to use them with great care.

Had Celtic, or any other club, used anything that has come out during this trial, should they have had access to it, then the trial and the Resolution 12 issue may well have both ground to a halt.

By waiting for the evidence of malpractice to enter the public domain via another route, Lawwell and the others may well have played a blinder.

Of course, its entirely possible that Celtic were completely unaware of the inside story of the collapse of Rangers, or that they refused to believe any of it.

Maybe the board thought that the presence of a strong Rangers was indeed vital to the well being of Celtic, and the financial security of the club.

Perhaps they have built a position of financial independence just in case Scottish football were to collapse and start again without an entity from Ibrox.

Over the last few years, Celtic have refused to even use the term “Old Firm “, a clear sign that the PLC no longer wishes to be associated with the brand.

A brand that the SFA/SPFL will now wonder of it was worth falling on their swords for.

Football is a business, and as it becomes more and more clear that the game was tainted at best and rotten to the core at worst, sponsors, tv deals and even players will become wary of involvement.

Peter Lawwell, and others such as Ann Budge will be well aware of that.

We’ve waited a few years for a result on this one.

Another few weeks won’t make that much difference.

The clubs know, the fans know and one would assume that the sponsors know.

The game has to be cleansed, and a fresh start has to be made. I’d be very surprised if the peaceful revolution wasn’t already gathering pace.

It’s going to be a lovely summer.

While your piece makes perfect sense I must comment on this . . . “Would it not be better if that evidence was presented behind the scenes to those complicit with a wee note attached saying β€œresign, and we’ll say no more about it ” ?” No, no it wouldn’t.

Monti… can he remember his first 69th

FUCK THE SFA!

That’s what I meant

mike

Oh we are the Glasgow Celtic, the leaders of the land,
although we’re getting bigger, we’re still the finest in the land.
we play attacking fitba. masters of the game,
we gub the huns, its always the fucking same,
cos when we play at Cellic park our opponents we will tame.

Oh the drums go bang, the cymbals clang and the horns do blaze away,
the choir sings, the spirits lift,the G.B. do sway,
the crowd it cheers, they start to sing when Blasgow Cellic play’s fitba. the Glasgow Celtic wayyyyyyyyyyyyyy.

Ralph,
There is a big blank space ( could be the space between Mikes ears) at the end of the article today, before you reach the comments section?

That’s what Murray told the creditors!

Auldheid

Infinite patience produces immediate results. As a result of the enquiries made on behalf of Celtic shareholders by lawyers paid for by supporters and shareholders, what is coming out now more or less solidified before the last AGM. By then the CW trial was looming on the horizon and it was common sense to wait for it to run its course. Had Res12 been passed in 2013 what is emerging now would have been uncovered by the CFCB who had the power to investigate, including obtaining documentation now being produced. But that time has passed, overtaken by events as Reality… Read more »

Auldheid, Info has emerged from the CW trial that many(all?) in senior management at Rangers knew that they had a real liability on the wee tax case. Further this was known at least as early as the middle of March…well before the 31 March deadline for the application to obtain a licence for Europe. The blogsphere is full of calls for Regan’s head. While I think there is merit in this, I do not see absolute proof that will force his resignation. I am sure it will take absolute proof to remove him. If I was advising Mr Regan I… Read more »

Weered

Tioc67…It reminds me of their famous win last week over Partick Thistle the pitch invasion reminded me of the the last moments of headless chickens… they sense that it’s all over so they will make as much of what they can get while they can… fukkem

Just to Witness there Downfall would be the very mnimum.Its actually nauseating to think we,ve been cheated Left Right n Centre,Weered.

Weered

Tioc67…yes absolutely 100% … and all the other teams who were affected by their rule and law breaking. It might be that all teams within the SPL at the time of the cheating would have a valid case for compensation.

I,d be happy just seeing them Fall Never to Return.That wid be Compensation enough for me,It boggles the Mind how they can even exist.Anyone else would never come out of something like that Scot Free and Carry On as if Nothing Happened.Only A Hun could face such embarrassment without Batting an eye.

mike

From wee Fergus’s time we new that we were being cheated, he made that quite clear and proved it, resignations were forced upon the cheating Governing SFA and SPFL. The latest court case also make’s that clear, in essence thing’s have continued in exactly the same way, access to social media, has swerved past the media cheats, who follow follow the cheats, well done to the bloggers and our ain RES. 12 bhoys. The SFA and the SPFL are not and never have been fit for purpose, it must be UEFA who are watching what’s going on and hopefully will… Read more »

Weered

mike…the UEFA thing might be wishful thinking…. there’s so much shit in that organisation now

mike

We learn today Weered that Fifa are reinvestigating over 100 cases of corruption, the whole Fitba. World stinks to high heaven.
Β£41 million to Paul Pogba’s agent, for facilitating his move to Man.Utd. That is incredible, supporters just want to see an honest game, but money corrupts and it is endemic in ALL sports.
Who then will expose the cheats at the SFA and the SPFL if not UEFA after all the cheating was to gain access to European monies.

Weered

Mike…that’s the Β£64m question…

The Cha

Will we be here again in 6 months or a year’s time, the dam about to break but never actually does?

If the Huns get in the EL then it suggests it will be business as usual.

“Nothing ever happens, nothing happens at all
The needle returns to the start of the song
And we all sing along like before”.

BondiBrian

…and what, if anything have you done Cha to facilitate change in this long-drawn oot saga ?

Gen up question BTW.

Every single supporter of Every Club has been mugged by these Sad Excuses.Atleast we can hold our heads high and let our football do the Talking.If and when they do get outed,We need to be certain there are no dodgy cnts in control or its all a waste of time.That lot like keeping it in the Family,So to speak.

BroxburnBhoy

Very good article Ralph. There are many ways to skin a cat and as long as the cat gets skinned in the end. Patience has indeed been a virtue in this cases as the court cases have a will play out. While a bull in a China Shop is one way to go and would be gratifying because it’s the right thing to do, it may have ended up helping the various versions of “Rangers” as it may have compromised court cases. I think the two toxic versions of the Govan club will be brutally and mercilessly exposed in court… Read more »
