Since February 2012 the job of Face Painter has had its very own place in the folklore of Scottish football.

In an act of quintessential shame a Face Painter owed £20 was included among the 276 creditors left high and dry by the shamed Rangers Football Club.

Her Majesty was at the top of the list after the club refused to hand over Income Tax and National Insurance but there were many others left out of pocket including florists, newsagents and taxi firms as well as Glasgow City Council, Police Scotland and the Ambulance Service.

Everyone, anyone was left out of pocket as the club entered liquidation while Ally McCoist, Lee McCulloch and others TUPE’d their contracts over.

Ian Black, Kevin Kyle and Dean Shiels signed up for a combined wage of £25,000 a week in the bottom tier of the Scottish Football League while the Face Painter and others waited and waited for crumbs from the table as BDO got on with the liquidation process.

Now, 11 years down the line the Tribute Act is hiring with a Painter & Decorator about to join the payroll, fortunately for angry bears transfer guru Ross Wilson won’t be involved in the recruitment process.
