Alex Rae appears to have achieved the possible- outdoing Derek Johnstone at cheerleading.
For decades big DJ gave his unswerving support to whatever regime was in power at Ibrox, sharing his wisdom with listeners to Radio Clyde and readers of the Evening Times.
Every moonbeam was passed on with top spin with good times just around the corner as the financial hole got bigger and bigger but Craig Whyte arrived on the scene to save the day. Or so he thought.
Johnstone made a sharp and unexplained exit from Radio Clyde at the start of this season, since then Rae has stepped up to the mark with full pom-poms as he cheered on every move by Steven Gerrard on the park alongside the financial gymnastics of Dougie Park and Dave King up until he walked away to South Africa.
Before Christmas Rae revealed that fresh investment was in the pipeline in time for the January transfer window. Gerrard brought in two loan stars as Celtic ran away with the SPFL to make it nine-in-a-row.
Now Rae is banging the drum for the so-called £10m investment revealed by Park in an in-house Q and A with himself!
No documentation has been published, Club 1872 haven’t been informed of further dilution of their shares but according to Rae all is well in the garden, but not the Memorial Garden.
Rae has still to comment on the low key sale of the Albion Car Park to Merchant Homes.

A wee lesson in accounting, Alex. The £10m gap disappeared as Rangers deffered most of their upcoming payables (wage bill etc) for several months. They haven’t received new funding, they’ve just kicked the bill down the road to end June.

Alex you’re on a par with Andy Halliday as the perennial banter years figure of laughter ?
Staunch as can be yet ridiculed continually, the SSB banter years belong to you ???

Alex you really need to stop commenting on things you know absolutely fk all about. Just concern yourself with avoiding HMRC instead of using Sevco PR to answer a fellow pundit. Silly,silly gullibilly

Mr Rae seems to know what’s going on at this football club, I wonder if he knows any answers about EBTs which he was involved in ?

“The funding gap has been filled by investors.” No intention of asking by whom, how much? At what cost or security? ?? Then when it goes tits up the SFA will get blamed for not carrying out a forensic examination of their accounts. Most gullible and submissive fans in the world
