Obsessed Stuart McCall has pleaded with Dave King to stop 10-in-a-row.
The former Sevco boss was shown the door at Ibrox after a 6-1 play-off humiliation from Motherwell in 2015 and doesn’t appear to have learned any lessons.
In 2012 the old club died because they refused to pay Her Majesty with McCall’s local rugby league club, Bradford Bulls, recently going the same way.
Rather than organically building a club up, as Fergus McCann did in the nineties, McCall wants to see Messi and Ronaldo recruited to stop Celtic who have paid Her Majesty in full and on time throughout McCall’s life.
“Stopping nine in a row has to be Rangers’ target,” The Sun reports the ex Rangers (IL) midfielder saying at an event to promote William Hill.
“Because that rivalry is what football’s about up here, so it has to be the aim.
“It’s a massive worry, yeah! Seriously, you’re getting to the stage where it will be talked about.
“Going back to when we did nine in a row, when we got to five and six titles, Rangers fans started singing songs – just like Celtic supporters are singing them now — about nine and even ten.
“Each season, it will build and build, and everyone will be aware of it.
“I’m just hoping Rangers have got a transfer war chest somewhere so they can go and buy Messi and Ronaldo to stop Celtic!
“Kidding aside, it’s natural if you are a Rangers-minded person that you should fear Celtic getting there.
“And if you are a Celtic-minded person, that’s the dream, isn’t it? To go and smash it.
“We can talk all we like about youth structures and progression. But if Rangers are going to stop Celtic before they get nine or ten, there will have to be a huge financial input.”
Dave Murray’s obsession over Celtic’s 1967 European Cup win killed the old club.
With annual losses of £10m, a going concern warning and no mainstream bank overdraft facility it seems that McCall’s wish to stop 10 will kill off the tribute act.
