That's fantastic stuff - the bit about the pseudo Irish lunatic flying solo in his latest scribbling rings true - the two 'Sevco' references were the giveaway - all pretence at legit journalism gone, just a desperate hate filled parasite pandering to his acolytes. Loving this turning of the tables.

Out f******* Standing work. Love todays blog. Its heartening to see guys out there fighting back against the bhigots and the blogging prostitutes - or blogstitutes as I like to call them.

I don't honestly know how Bill could turn on the club he supposedly loves for £££. I could never do the dirty on our club for cash. Never. To me it's akin to stealing from your grannies purse.

the one thing about all this that I find hard to understand is what Ashley/Bishop hopes to gain from all this? "Negotiating position"? Hmm, the margins in the retail contract don;t really merit this. Why do they need to spend all this money on a PR strategy to retain a merchandising contract that can't ever be lucrative for them unless they reach an agreement RFC see as favourable. Surely this is just the legacy of the old Wig campaign to retain control - when that battle was lost, why are they still doing it??

Rangers have this year ordered the minimum amount of stock allowed under the agreement, I don’t know the exact numbers but my understanding it’s small enough to be of no real consequence.

that is very encouraging

you'd think SD are going to HAVE to renegotiate the contract.

I suspect they used the scumbag as he was involved in the rangers finance blog nonsense for a while .

He would release a story to try get bears to uptight about whatever he was rambling on about and a few days later get the so called bear to follow it up as if confirming it as true . I think this was the formula behind the blogs

No self-respecting Bear would believe it but if enough of the unwashed buy in, it becomes timmy 'fact' like the RTC blog and the mince from CQN. Then we end up with people posting 'tim in the pub told me...' or 'I heard...' stories. It then becomes public 'knowledge', even though we can produce irrefutable evidence to disprove it.

I'll take a pinto on that...Law well is on record as stating he wants The Rangers back but in such poor financial health as to be no match for The Bheast. Thus, any negative publicity that would prevent punters investing is the aim.

A great article , lets expose the lies before they publish it !


Over to you Mediahouse

Posted on July 3, 2015 by exposingtherhats


This has been a difficult week for Mediahouse with what was meant to be a very low profile agreement between themselves, Mr Macgiollabhain and Mr McMurdo being exposed. In fairness to Ramsay Smith he has taken the recent setbacks in good humour, he called me last night as I rather amateurishly gave myself away in a comment posted to his Rangers Loyal website. The call was good natured and out of respect I gave him the heads up on the information I plan to disclose after refusing a lighthearted offer for me to “join the team”. Sadly Ramsay refused to pass my comment through the RSL moderation so I’ll expand on it today and will detail a general outline of the plans given to Bill and Phil for the next month.

South African foreign exchange controls – The “Dave King has no money” angle wasn’t really breaking through as the success of Micromega is there for all to see. It’s clear that even if Mr King didn’t have spare cash he would have no problems in raising finance so the new angle of he has money but can’t get it out of the country was decided to be more plausible. Personally I am by no means an expert on moving money out of South Africa and King notoriously plays his cards close to his chest so I won’t speculate on how he will do this other than to say Keith Bishops Associates believe he will be able to invest significant sums but not until mid-October.

Financial Fair Play – This was planned to be a huge line of attack, the plan was that Phil would kick things off with a blog originally intended for publication yesterday. The gist was to be that a previous going concern warning in Rangers accounts coupled with their losses over a 3 year period excluded the club from Europe should they qualify this season. Bill would then follow this up using his Ninjaman account helpfully explaining that “soft investment” of the sort Mr King hasn’t yet provided but Mike Ashley would have could have avoided all this. To categorically clear this up, this is a complete non issue, with an equity injection from owners clubs are allowed to lose an average of £10 million a year. We will be receiving a significant equity injection as made clear by our board of directors and with it any Going Concern warnings disappear.

Pushing the line that any unsold merchandise benefits Mike Ashley anyway – This will be frequently mentioned in Phil and Bill’s blogs in order to undermine what is actually turning into a very successful boycott. Like most spin it involves an element of truth, if Rangers order too much stock they need to make a payment. However Rangers have this year ordered the minimum amount of stock allowed under the agreement, I don’t know the exact numbers but my understanding it’s small enough to be of no real consequence.

Suggestion that Warburton was misled on transfer budget – Inevitably with so many players coming in talks will break down with some. When this happens Phil and Bill are going to report that their “sources” are suggesting Warburton is unhappy with budgets and feels misled, they would even hint he will walk out.

How Mediahouse will proceed now their plans have been made public is anyone’s guess but I note with interest that Phil and Bill have been keeping a very low profile for the last couple of days which suggests a rethink is underway.

On a more humourous note I just wanted to touch on Phil’s fantastic 8000 season ticket sales blog, followed last night by a wonderful face saving attempt when he claimed it was now 14000. These blogs baffled me slightly as the point of the Mediahouse contract is to undermine these sales, my natural reaction as a Rangers fan if sales were low would be to get out buy one and help the club.

The reason the logic behind them was so skewed is that Phil was flying solo on this one, it wasn’t part of agreed plans with Mediahouse and he wasn’t paid for either blog. My only guess as to why he published something so easily discredited is that he took a punt, hoped sales were low, delivered some “Rangers porn” for his loyal readers and it blew up in his face. I do hope this little lapse in judgement doesn’t cost Phil his stenography contract, his family have spilt too many tears already over Rangers.

As for Merlin McMurdo he is now aware that I and other more high profile Rangers supporters have concrete evidence proving he carried out the dirty work of the previous board. We dare you Bill, post one more lie about our club…

Ramsey Smith, lacky to Toxic jack grew up riding sheep in some puddle stinking backyard so his involvement is ammusingly apt.

Still, rather embarrassing murky dealings to be associated with just because of how patheticaly amateur they are.

Anyone with a brain knew the so-called Bill McMurdo was paid by mediahouse (perhaps invented by them) it's been pointed out by many on here on plenty of occasions. Still to have one of your so-called men employing a couple of back street amateurs to peddle untruths shows up Ramsey for embarrassing amateur he is.

Professional PR companies must be laughing their asses off at Ramsey right now. He may as well be dressed in suspenders and tied to a chair with an orange stuffed in his mouth covered by a brown paper bag over his head.

Their actions do beg the question "what's in it for them?"

The alleged quote from one of the high bheasts (was it Liewell or Dr "not a plagiarist, no, not at all" Death?) that they would "nail us to the floor" does often seem the most logical explanation for the events that have unfolded in the last four years.

And if I'm reading things right Ramsey Smith is John James who is also sitonfence who was posting sometimes potentially damaging information on the LSE website and having a right ding-dong with our very own Cambridgeblue.

He's definitely got them rattled, they've just posted this...

RSL Statement On Lies

The RSL would like to publicly and vehemently refute and denounce recent allegations made in a troll site created to discredit our group.

The inference made by the Phantom Blogger on this troll site is that the RSL somehow functions as a construct for PR firm Media House. This is not only preposterous, it is a vicious smear and lie designed to vilify both the RSL and Media House. Furthermore, it is an untruth which is very easily proved to be so.

No PR company has any say or influence whatsoever in the running of RSL or the content output on this site. As a group we publish news and views which we feel is of interest to our members and the wider Rangers family. We obtain news and information from various sources with backgrounds in media, sport, finance and law. No corporate body has or will have a “voice” which we as a group would be the vehicle for. We are a stand-alone group, proud of and protective of our Nonconformism.

We are not interested in the Spin Wars between agencies and would not take part in this with one side or another. That said, we are unaware that Media House is actually a side in any war involving RFC. If the Phantom Blogger is as accurate in his assessment of Media House’s supposed media campaign against Rangers as he is about Ramsay Smith’s involvement with the RSL, then it is a safe bet this is just a bad case of heatstroke or vile mischief-making normally associated with the club’s enemies.

The fact is that Ramsay Smith of Media House has no involvement formally or otherwise with the RSL. If the Phantom Blogger really believes this, he is a seriously deluded individual. We think it more likely that the Phantom Blogger has a remit to discredit both Media House and our fan group – from whom we have our own information but will happily leave Rangers fans to work out for themselves.

As for the poster John James on our blog – whose comments seem to trouble the Phantom Blogger – we have no idea of John James’ real identity. Using anonymous sign-ins is common practice in the social media universe and this is widely accepted.

We at the RSL are not surprised that the campaign against us has been ramped up to the level it has. What Rangers fans really have to ask is: Why?

We challenge the anonymous coward behind the troll blog to reveal his true identity and furnish evidence that the RSL is a Media House creation or operation. Should he fail to provide irrefutable evidence that eg Ramsay Smith runs the RSL, then the Rangers community can draw its own conclusions.

We are happy to allow a full forensic audit of our group and this website by trusted bears who have no agenda or axe to grind, proving that we are free of any outside influence or spindoctoring. We are already in the process of arranging this. Perhaps the Phantom Blogger would oblige by being open about his identity and any links he has to any influences?

In regards to all this spin by these trolls, we appreciate most fans want to concentrate on the upcoming season and get behind the new management team, without all the in-fighting off the field. We would issue our standard advice to Rangers fans to think for themselves and not blindly follow fan groups – including ours.

You might also want to ponder why certain people resort to lies and smear when it comes to the RSL. It is certainly not good publicity for the club, particularly so soon after a Rangers director had to resign for Islamaphobia.

As we keep saying, all the flak we are receiving only results in intelligent fans working out the truth for themselves. That our readership is soaring and membership roster growing is testimony that many in the Rangers family recognise the contribution we are making.

What matters to RSL members is Rangers, not our own group. A concept foreign to some, though thanfully not all.

More to come…

RSL Statement On Lies

The RSL would like to publicly and vehemently refute and denounce recent allegations made in a troll site created to discredit our group.

The inference made by the Phantom Blogger on this troll site is that the RSL somehow functions as a construct for PR firm Media House. This is not only preposterous, it is a vicious smear and lie designed to vilify both the RSL and Media House. Furthermore, it is an untruth which is very easily proved to be so.

No PR company has any say or influence whatsoever in the running of RSL or the content output on this site. As a group we publish news and views which we feel is of interest to our members and the wider Rangers family. We obtain news and information from various sources with backgrounds in media, sport, finance and law. No corporate body has or will have a voice which we as a group would be the vehicle for. We are a stand-alone group, proud of and protective of our Nonconformism.

We are not interested in the Spin Wars between agencies and would not take part in this with one side or another. That said, we are unaware that Media House is actually a side in any war involving RFC. If the Phantom Blogger is as accurate in his assessment of Media Houses supposed media campaign against Rangers as he is about Ramsay Smiths involvement with the RSL, then it is a safe bet this is just a bad case of heatstroke or vile mischief-making normally associated with the clubs enemies.

The fact is that Ramsay Smith of Media House has no involvement formally or otherwise with the RSL. If the Phantom Blogger really believes this, he is a seriously deluded individual. We think it more likely that the Phantom Blogger has a remit to discredit both Media House and our fan group from whom we have our own information but will happily leave Rangers fans to work out for themselves.

As for the poster John James on our blog whose comments seem to trouble the Phantom Blogger we have no idea of John James real identity. Using anonymous sign-ins is common practice in the social media universe and this is widely accepted.

We at the RSL are not surprised that the campaign against us has been ramped up to the level it has. What Rangers fans really have to ask is: Why?

We challenge the anonymous coward behind the troll blog to reveal his true identity and furnish evidence that the RSL is a Media House creation or operation. Should he fail to provide irrefutable evidence that eg Ramsay Smith runs the RSL, then the Rangers community can draw its own conclusions.

We are happy to allow a full forensic audit of our group and this website by trusted bears who have no agenda or axe to grind, proving that we are free of any outside influence or spindoctoring. We are already in the process of arranging this. Perhaps the Phantom Blogger would oblige by being open about his identity and any links he has to any influences?

In regards to all this spin by these trolls, we appreciate most fans want to concentrate on the upcoming season and get behind the new management team, without all the in-fighting off the field. We would issue our standard advice to Rangers fans to think for themselves and not blindly follow fan groups including ours.

You might also want to ponder why certain people resort to lies and smear when it comes to the RSL. It is certainly not good publicity for the club, particularly so soon after a Rangers director had to resign for Islamaphobia.

As we keep saying, all the flak we are receiving only results in intelligent fans working out the truth for themselves. That our readership is soaring and membership roster growing is testimony that many in the Rangers family recognise the contribution we are making.

What matters to RSL members is Rangers, not our own group. A concept foreign to some, though thanfully not all.

More to come

Phil seems to know who wrote this article (probably fat Andy told him).

Phil is alluding something about the author, but its not really clear to me what he is suggesting when he says:


Apparently young Mr "Guest Writer" is considered something of an intellectual among The People...

These parasites were brought in by Murray circa 2005/06 and have done absolutely NOTHING to protect RFC or the support ever since. In fact the demonisation and dehumanising of the support since has increased significantly. And now it looks like they've been part of the dirty tricks dep't from Whyte onwards. NO ONE, absolutely NO ONE is surprised by this.

I'm almost certain they first came to prominence in the spring of 2006 when

1 - that rat Traynor said Rangers fans deserved to be 'batoned' in Spain. This was followed up by

One of the most interesting points in the article posted by the OP was about Dave King and the timescale that restricts him from removing money from South Africa. I recall him stating that there was going to be a period of time that the take-over would take. I feel that everyone thought at the time this was getting the club back from the Wigs .
Imagine if he had said at the time of the take-over " I cannot help out financially at the moment, as my funds will take 6-12 months to bring over to this country".
That would have been devastating for us all.Now we can back him in the knowledge that the funding is subject to restriction and International red tape.

Absolutely not Roger and I think you know how I feel about Murray. But like it or not, his smoothness, glibness, showmanship call it what you want was usually out there in the open and there was at least a transparency to his leading us up (or down) the garden path.

However, the antics, the careful manipulation and the behaviour from the succession of crooks since, is something else altogether.

This mob are simply not interested in us as a football club all they were interested in was taking from us as much as they could.

That they would employ a Rangers/Protestant hating, active sympathising ira piece of human sewage to help them in what has been concerted malevolence against our club sums them up.

Bottom line, one of our own working in tandem with the likes of 3 names takes us to new depths of treachery.

Over the years the PR of Mediahouse, paid for by Rangers was in effect mostly PR for the individuals in and around the boardroom. It was to further their interests and in recent years that was PR that was intentionally damaging to the entity (RFC) that was paying the bills.

They were pointed out as being Toxic to Rangers best interests years ago and we've seen a familar pattern to their involvement since then. They have been the 'Continuty Bridge' for all the dishonest, lying and often robbing bastards who have came, went and/or are still hanging around the edges.


Mediahouse invoices would be an interesting angle to go into, or rather to look for any trail between club and payment to MH or individual within, during the periods of time when it wasn't directly representing Rangers.

The moment big hauns Chuck used the phrase "Charles Green's Rangers" I became certain we had created a monster - in time that hunch was to prove correct. But hunches are not always reliable - I learned that with Whyte.

I commented on a thread elsewhere this morning regarding these serious allegations - and Im glad you used the word "treachery" rather than the "skewed priorities" which was used in that elsewhere thread.

Many years ago you and I would write to defend the club & support from the antics of Spiers, McKay, Greenslade etc and 3 names & his ilk, of whom of course there were many. We may not have always been right - but at least we were always honest.

I have mentioned before that we would have been on Ashley's radar the minute we signed our deal with his greatest rival JJB Sports. Possibly even earlier if Murray had rejected any similar deals with Sports Direct. Interesting wee timeline :

March 2006 - Rangers sign deal with JJB
August 2006 - Mediahouse become our PR consultants
August 2007 - Glasgow born friend of Mike Ashley and "lifestyle criminal" Christopher Ronnie takes over at JJB.
His fraudulent 2 year tenure ends up in jail time and the collapse of JJB.
I think it was also in 2007 that Murray rejected an offer for Rangers as "it didn't feel right for the club."
Could Mediahouse or individuals within it have been fulfilling a destructive role inside Rangers just as Ronnie was doing at JJB ?
Both Rangers and JJB went into administration within months of each other in 2012.

After Murray, we all thought things could only get better. Only those more in the know at the very top had thoughts to the contrary about Whyte.

It was a natural reaction and the thing is surely the financial genius that was Murray, who continually reassured us that he would only sell to the right person, would have done his homework beforehand? Again only those in the loop knew otherwise and even then Murray discarded their advice.

Green? I initially loved the thought that here was a guy at last prepared to open his 'mooth' and defend us in public. Again, after the all consuming negligence of the Murray era, this was music to my ears. By the time of the Q&A session/con with Chic Dung the party was over at least for me.

The rest is history and one we'll take decades to restructure from. And that's only as a club. Fan wise we can forget it.

And who cleared the way for Whyte?

http://www.thecoplandroad.org/2013/11/for-good-of-rangers-irvine-must-go.html

The damage Jack Irvine and MediaHouse have inflicted on Rangers, directly and indirectly, cannot be understated. It should never be forgotten that it was Irvine that cleared the path for Craig Whyte to take control of Rangers without any great degree of scrutiny due to his suppression of negative articles concerning Whyte’s business past.

A lot of people were taken in by the fact that Ashley is a billionaire and a lot still are. They think that Ashley will pump millions into Rangers when they don't realise that Ashley already has what he wants from us.

I was in the superstore earlier today and it made me sick to see what Rangers' own club shop has become - a glorified Sports Direct complete with the crossed out price tags.

Sit on Fence isn't a Rangers fan - he is a professional spinner and a very poor one - boring people isn't a good line. He also struggled in our silly little spats to name his favourite goals or title wins. He accused me of being Chris Graham about a million times too.

He did think that using Dave King's middle name "Cunning Ham" was funny and/or abusive - perhaps he doesn't like Jews or Muslims either. Wish he would PM on here so I could remind him of his utterly false predictions :D:D

It is basically a much needed counter-attack to spell out how Ashley is having the dark arts work for him and his interests.

The basic premise is undoubtedly true, a co-ordinated campaign that leads from Ashley interests to Keith Bishop to Mediahouse to various online bloggers and group (RSL).

This has been fairly obvious for sometime but this blog has successfully pushed the line into the wider public domain, including background info and an immediate going to ground for mentioned bloggers to regroup/reorganise with Ramsay Smith.


Rather than concentrate on the bloggers, it's the wider Ashley interest and what they are prepared to do (and always have been) that is the main issue.

Indeed.

An insidious war continuous to be waged against our Club for Ashley's benefit.

What is his motivation now?

With his reputation in tatters, it surely can't be ownership of the Club.

Revenge against King looks most likely.

He remains a very dangerous enemy.

I didn't mean to suggest that you were the blogger just that the identity of sitonfence was now revealed if what the mystery blogger says about John James being Ramsey Smith was true. On the RSL page here https://rangerssupportersloyal.wordpress.com/ if you scroll down it has a post from 'John James (@sitonfence)' from the 27th May very much in keeping with the tone of sitonfence on the LSE forum. It makes complete sense that sitonfence would be Ramsay Smith trying by whatever means to discredit King.

A bit sad that someone would spend quite such a proportion of his day scare-mongering but I suppose he must be being paid well for this service.

It wouldn't be routine but it wouldn't be impossible that user ID's are used by more than one person dependent on circumstance and angle/content.

Many will recall the poster 'Applepine' who surfaced on here once Mediahouse were contracted for expensive crisis-manangement, in response to the request for an General Meeting (to put Blin and P.Murray on the board).

I said at the time that he/she was Jack Irvine or someone close to him (possibly Ramsay Smith). Once the AGM passed, Applepine tried to prepare the ground for the then 'new board' (just the same as the old board) but was exposed and left, never to post under that username again.

As 'Applepine' surfaced, a dormant username started posting 'SemperSec'. He had joined FF, the week after CW arrived at Ibrox but didn't post until 'crisis-management' got underway. He has since posted during times of what could be considered challenging times for the s.p.i.v.s, his last post coming on the 5th of March.

What is without doubt that a major part of the Mediahouse efforts on behalf of the line-up of 'usual suspects' over the past few years has been online in social media.

The Mediahouse links with McMurdo, the tainted blogger actually now serve us, to help point towards their latest tactic's, eg. the RSL. I'd say he has become a liability for them.

I saw your post that included a timeline since 2006.

My first impression is that on the face of things, I am sceptical of a serious Ashley link (re. Rangers) that far back and think it more likely it may have started to germinate/take provisonal shape(s) 2 or 3 years later.

Irvine (MH) had links to SDM from way before 2006 and I don't think it was until the banking crash that Sir Duped was forced to consider 'alternatives'.

SD/Ashley could well have become alerted to the potential for a 'deal' with Rangers at that point but IMO Ashley prefers 'distressed brands' where he can wield his customary MO. I don't think that this was obviously apparent in 2006, although he may have marked it down as one to keep an eye on.

Only my opinion though.


That 'customary MO' was used by Ashley within the JJB takeover, which in itself was revealing about 'Uncle Mike'.

If it's true that Ashley got a placeman on the JJB board in order to create a 'distressed brand' then what has happened at Rangers could well conform with his MO.

It would be in the interests of someone wanting a brand on the cheap to promote an image of that brand as distressed. Arguably the BTC site did just that for Rangers. They might then appoint their minions to the board of said brand to eviscerate from within, as may have happened with JJB. The distressed brand is now ripe for the picking.

I'm not normally one for conspiracy theories but there seems to be an underlying logic to what we've been through the last few years.

Interesting Buster. Ashley took over at Newcastle in May 2007. Within a couple of months his new club along with Rangers and Portsmouth, were raided by the police. Maybe this alerted him to problems ahead at Rangers.
Or perhaps it was in 2008 when C****c "became aware of an event" giving rise to a potential tax liability concerning Juninho's EBT which they subsequently paid after agreement with HMRC. Maybe Desmond tipped him off on one of his holidays in Sandy Lane. But it would certainly have been a masterstroke on Ashley's part if he had the clubs' PR in his pocket back then.

Good post on Sons of Struth facebook page re. toxic Jack

One character keeps popping up during the last few years of this debacle and his lies and spin have gone someway to lengthen the term of the wigs, rats and income vampires control of our club.
Jack Irvines first chapter in upsetting Rangers fans was when a leaked email showed his disrespect for John Greig, the greatest ever Ranger.
We have now learned of his close association with a blogger who defended the board, and still does, and how he used this blogger to infiltrate the minds of the Rangers fans for years.
His long standing agreement to serve the Easdales was denied even when his clients turned up at a stricken shipyard with him beside them.
He claimed to be great friends with Ally McCoist during our only ever phone call whilst at the same time leaking details about him to again infiltrate the thinking of Rangers fans. We are well capable of making our own minds up about the subject but it's worth remembering the board wanted our manger sacked well before the fans showed any discontent but not for his performance or results. They wanted him out because he stopped supporting them. To use PR in this way is not acceptable.
He is close friends with the lawyer Peter Watson who he shared premises with and acts as legal guardian for his children.
This is the lawyer who became a daily pen pal with not only me but several other vocal Rangers fans over the last few years and it's debatable if Sandy Easdales failed attempt to sue me for £200k was his own idea or some idiotic scheme by Watson and Irvine.
He used the clubs own website to claim an embryonic Sons of Struth were attempting to cause unruly behaviour at Ibrox in a pathetic attempt to lose our support before we even began. 30,000 red cards later proved this failed.
He filled tabloids with lies that Craig Mather had been warned in the streets of Glasgow that fans wouldn't come to Ibrox if our protests continued even when we knew he was in a flight to Dubai hours after the protest.
Somers once claimed that fans only held up protest cards as they were convinced it was a show of support for Nelson Mandela. More lies from Jacks pen in an attempt to make us believe all was well at Ibrox.
I was called by two journalists one evening asking my whereabouts and if I was aware James Easdales house had been allegedly vandalised that evening. James Easdales house had not been vandalised that evening and it didn't take a genius to figure out who had wanted the journalists to think I was the vandal.
This cretins name keeps popping up and the key question is why.
He has long had his ties with the club cut. His clients, the Easdales, are no longer directors of our club so why oh why does he continue to attempt to get negative stories about our club in newspapers and why does he still want to control a Rangers blogger?
One things for certain, he doesn't do charity, he doesn't work without pay. So why is he still active in this story?
Another certainty, regardless of the warnings I've had about how dangerous he can be due to his friends in high places, I won't rest until not only I know the truth but it's also told to the rest of the Rangers family.
Every single person who harmed our club or aided those who fleeced us deserves to be outed. Anyone who claims I should let it go is basically defending the indefensible.
They attempt to distort our memories however rest assured they will never erase this bears memory.
