  1. Can't get a picture uploaded here at work,but it reads SAVE BRENDAN LILLIS. ALEX KANE: Should Lillis be shown compassion? Published on Monday 8 August 2011 08:38 IN 1977 Provisional IRA member Brendan Lillis was sentenced to life imprisonment. Passing sentence, the judge said: ââ?¬Å?No doubt if you had not been caught you would have continued your bombing campaign for an indefinite period.ââ?¬Â As a member of the Provisional IRA, Lillis would have read and signed up to the terms and conditions of the IRA Green Book; conditions which embraced paragraphs about the mo
  2. A man is to stand trial accused of attacking Celtic manager Neil Lennon during a match last season. John Wilson, 26, is alleged to have assaulted the football boss as his side played Hearts in a Scottish Premier League game at Tynecastle stadium in Edinburgh. Wilson, of Edinburgh, is accused of lunging at Lennon and seizing him around the neck during the fixture on May 11. Prosecutors claim the alleged assault, and a separate charge of breach of the peace, were both aggravated by religious prejudice. He appeared before a short hearing at Edinburgh Sheriff Court, where his trial
  3. WESLEY VERHOEK last night issued a come-and-get-me plea to Rangers boss Ally McCoist. The Dutch winger, 24, has told SunSport he's desperate for a switch to the SPL champs after hearing of Gers' interest. Ibrox gaffer McCoist has had a �£1million bid rejected and will have to up his offer with his club ADO Den Haag demanding �£2.6m. Verhoek said: "I will only leave here for a big challenge and for me Rangers are a fantastic club. "But we aren't there yet as the clubs have still to agree a fee and after that I'll see what happens. "When we return from Cyprus I expect ADO
  4. MADJID BOUGHERRA will be sold as soon as Rangers secure a replacement after the Algerian rejected a renewed offer to become one of the clubâ��s highest earners by signing a lucrative contract extension. It was hoped the defenderâ��s exit from Ibrox, most probably to Qatari champions Lekhwiya who are offering him a �£30,000-a-week tax-free, could be expedited if Anderlecht accepted a �£2.5m offer for Hungarian internationalist Roland Juhasz and personal terms were agreed with the 28-year-old. However, that bid was firmly rejected by the Belgian club last night, a spokesper

  6. By Andrew Smith DUNDEE United manager Peter Houston doesn't want to see David Goodwillie move to the Old Firm over fears Glasgow's streets would prove a baiting ground that could result in the player sustaining serious injury. Rape charges against Goodwillie were dropped last week on the grounds of insufficient evidence and the collapse of that case has reignited bidding for a striker considered the country's most exciting young talent. The 22-year-old has also appeared among the more wayward and indeed still has assault charges hanging over him. Off-field problems might be a factor in n
  7. In the Franz Kafka novel The Trial, a man is prosecuted by an obscure authority that fails to state his crime. I havenââ?¬â?¢t read it since my Existentialist teenage years, but memory is of a bizarre, claustrophobic fiction showing the evils of faceless bureaucracy. Of-course I would be hysterical if I said this was in any way modern Scotland. We are still part of a wonderfully free society that should make us proud. But we are still not past condemning others with labels ââ?¬â?? with no thought given to what that label actually means. We now habitually call others ââ?¬Å?SectarianÃ
  8. RANGERS; WE WILL NOT BE BLAMED FOR SECTARIANISM New boss promises "aggresive" fightback against critics Craig Whyte, the new owner of Rangers, has launched a robust fightback against the football clubs critics on sectarianism, making clear that it will "not be made the whipping boys for society's failings". Ahead of next weeks meeting of the Scottish Governments joint action group, chaired by First Minister Alex Salmond, Mr Whyte has tasked his friend Jack Irvine, executive chairman of Media House International, to spearhead a "more aggresive" response to Rangers critics within and
  9. I think John Pilger's latest article is worth a read, so here it is - Welcome to the violent world of Mr. Hopey Changey 26 May 2011 When Britain lost control of Egypt in 1956, Prime Minister Anthony Eden said he wanted the nationalist president Gamal Abdel Nasser "destroyed� murdered� I don�t give a damn if there�s anarchy and chaos in Egypt". Those insolent Arabs, Winston Churchill had urged in 1951, should be driven "into the gutter from which they should never have emerged". The language of colonialism may have been modified; the spirit and the hypoc

    Rangers winger Salim Kerkar has admitted he does not know why he has not yet kicked a ball for the first team but says he would not question manager Walter Smith�s judgement as he waits for a chance to impress. Kerkar signed for Rangers in November after a protracted trial period that saw some confusion over possible compensation owed to previous side FC Gueugnon. Rangers signed up the player on a deal until the end of the season with an agreement allowing Gueugnon a share of any future transfer fee. Despite not having kicked a ball in anger, Kerkar said he was happy to have moved t
  11. A police officer has been found guilty of breaching the peace after he was heard singing pro-IRA songs and challenged by an off-duty colleague. But a sheriff ruled that Christopher Halaka had not committed a sectarian offence because he had not wanted to cause "ill-will" to a particular group. Halaka, 31, was drunk on a night out in Perth with his uncle when they were heard singing the songs. Both Halaka and his uncle Laurence Winters, 43, were fined �£250. Halaka also faces an internal inquiry by Strathclyde Police where he works as a Pc. Perth Sheriff Court heard that t
  12. Published Date: 13 March 2011 By ANDREW SMITH BEYOND the issue of how long Neil Lennon can possibly put up with a daily existence in which his freedom and safety, and those of his family, are being challenged lie deeply uncomfortable questions. How have we tolerated the fomenting of such hatred for so long to have brought us to this point? And what does it say about our society? The bullets in the post in January that were followed by a fake nail bomb this month have taken the death threats and intimidation against Lennon to unprecedented levels for any public figure in this country.
  13. JIM DEVINE used public money to fund flights to see Celtic play in the Champions League - by claiming he was on constituency business. The shamed MP travelled north for glamour midweek games in Glasgow, telling Parliamentary bosses that he had vital meetings to attend. Former office manager Marion Kinley said: "Devine would fly up for Celtic midweek matches between 2006 and 2008. "He would come up on Wednesday and fly back on the Thursday morning. "MPs should have been at Westminster so Devine would make up an excuse that he had constituency business or kid on he was going to a
  14. Like countless other Canadian-born kids with parents who hail from Europe, Fraser Aird inherited his favourite sports team. Rangers FC was the choice in Aird�s Scarborough home, the inevitable byproduct of having both a father and a maternal grandpa who were longtime season ticket holders at Ibrox Stadium, the club�s Glasgow ground. Growing up, it meant regular, early-morning outings to see Scottish Premier League games on satellite. There were live looks too, when the team made pre-season tours to Toronto. Annual conventions were also part of the mix, as his parents belo
  15. Somewhere to stick the latest headlines for the latest installment of the silly season. I'll kick things off: Rangers line up Bosman for Killie Goalkeeper Cammy Bell http://www.guardian.co.uk/football/2011/jan/04/rangers-bosman-kilmarnock-cammy-bell
  16. http://www.extratime.ie/newsdesk/articles/4795/ Cork youngster making his name at Rangers 0 commentsby Alan Smith Thu, Jan 20 2011 When Alan Smith first stepped in between the posts for Springfield Ramblers as a fresh-faced schoolboy at nine years of age, nobody would have imagined that shortly after his 17th birthday Rangers would hand him a professional contract. An Irish player signing for the club on the blue side of Glasgow might be very much a rarity in the footballing world, but it�s not the only unusual story in Smith�s rapid rise to prominence. Ha
  17. Rangers take Forest youth striker on trial Striker Thomas Mullen will train with Rangers next week. Rangers will run the rule over Scotland under-19�s striker Thomas Mullen next week as Walter Smith looks to bolster his attacking options for the future. The young forward is available on a free transfer from Nottingham Forest after being told he is surplus to requirements by Billy Davies. Mullen was a standout performer last season for the Nottingham Forest youth team, scoring 17 goals, making him the academy�s top scorer. Interests ensued from Everton and Blackbur
  18. No, he's not a Cuban pimp but a Canadian professional footballer who plays for Toronto who Celtic are linked with. Infact, I think he's on trial the now over at Porkheed. According to my cousin who lives in Canada, de Rosario isn't the best player at Toronto. Keep them coming please Neil.

  20. Roddy Forsyth: soap opera surrounding Hugh Dallas episode reeks of nasty opportunism So the conspiracy theorists were correct all along. The truth, at last, is out there and Scottish football is in turmoil, although it took disruption to the fixture card to bring the whole sorry mess into the open. This goes back to the BP oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico, of course. The oil has gummed up the ocean bed and switched off the North Atlantic Current, which keeps Europe from freezing. We are at the start of a new Ice Age. You don�t believe it? OK, what game are you going to watch th

Can't so I know anything about him but hopefully we are interested in adding players to the squad.
  22. An OFF-DUTY cop faced up to a colleague who was singing IRA songs on a night out, a court heard yesterday. Ian Cameron said he stepped in when Christopher Halaka sparked an angry reaction by singing sectarian songs as he approached a taxi rank. He said he was trying to calm down Halaka, 31, and his uncle Laurence Winters, 43. Perth Sheriff Court heard that Mr Cameron, who was at a football team reunion in the city, told the men to stop singing. The Paisley CID officer added that a woman in the taxi queue also told them to stop. He added: "Both were shouting at the same time
  23. I've been thinking about some of the players from the past we've been close to signing, ones you might not remember. Does anyone remember the Italian player we gave a trial to around the time we signed Gattuso?
  24. Gers striker's uncle in Mafia link 'The Boxer' rumoured to be Godfather of Balkan mob By Stephen Houston and Kathleen Nutt, 03/10/2010 THE uncle of new Rangers hitman Nikica Jelavic is a feared figure in the Croatian underworld with links to the Mafia, the News of the World can today reveal. The �£4 million striker's shady relation - also called Nikica Jelavic but known as "Boxer" - is rumoured to be a Godfather in the Balkan mob operating from the Croatian capital Zagreb. But the 42-year-old former nightclub bouncer has managed to walk free from a string of court cases - inclu
