Celtic fans weren’t slow to give Radio Scotland some feedback for today’s football podcast.

It was True Blue Heaven for host Kenny MacIntyre as he shared the thoughts of Neil McCann and Ronald de Boer from the tax cheating era of Dick Advocaat and David Murray.

Unable to compete with Celtic, Murray turned to the so-called EBT scam to recruit players that his club couldn’t normally afford. In 2017 the Supreme Court ruled the scam to be disguised remuneration.

McCann came in from Hearts but on a much more ambitious scale de Boer swapped Barcelona for Ibrox, Tore Andre Flo did likewise from Chelsea. Stefan Klos left Borussia Dortmund for the special Ibrox scam while locals like Barry Ferguson, Steven Thompson, Kris Boyd, Alex Rae and Billy Dodds all signed up only to discover at a later date that they owed Her Majesty Income Tax, National Insurance, interest and penalties.

On today’s show MacItyre discovered that de Boer thinks that it is wise to invest in youth to develop your own players.

Under Craig Mulholland the fabled conveyor belt at the Murray Park Academy has ground to a halt with Lewis McLeod, Tom Walsh and Andy Murdoch the star graduates.

In 2012 Her Majesty rejected the offer of a CVA forcing the club that McCann and de Boer starred for into liquidation which is on-going.
