Simon Jordan, the man who took Crystal Palace into administration before the club was rescued by Steve Church was paying his usual gushing praise to Sevco.
Fortunately for Palace fans there was a consortium waiting in the wings as they avoided the humiliation of being put into liquidation.
As Jordan was getting into his stride about how Gerrard had saved Scottish football Brazil piped in with a short sharp warning.
There is still problems there, let me tell you.
It seems that Jordan has ignored the going concern in the Sevco accounts, Dave King’s toxic reputation and the small matter of the South African based criminal having to come up with £19m for shareholders before the end of January.
That plus legal costs and damages to Sports Direct will ensure the end of this Ibrox dream, perhaps like Crystal Palace there may be a consortium waiting to run the company properly rather than as an ego trip. Then again there may not be.
