Just a week after the five year-old club acrimoniously dismissed their manager, assistant and chief scout, freeing up some badly needed cash, skint Sevco are asking the Gullibears to volunteer their time to work for the club, in return for free entry to the club’s matches.
I can only assume this would cover games played at the dilapidated Ibrox, of which there are very few games left to play.
This cunning new plan is not exactly what you’d expect from the Establishment club as they try to sell a big bright future to prospective Directors of Football or Head Coaches. Offering a world class breakfast can only get you so far!
Ironically, but not surprising, the skint Sevco plan is being lauded in the rag that is the Daily Record, only days after they criticised St Mirren for not paying employees minimum wage, and just weeks after they went for Partick Thistle’s jugular for operating similar practices.
The same paper has the current Clyde manager, Barry Chuckle, offering advice to the temporary manager Graeme Murty, telling him he has the best job in the world. I’d suggest getting paid by one club while all your attention is given to another isn’t a bad gig either Bazza. Except its not tax free this time….
And just to complete the Sevco good feeling, Wacko Jacko has a piece on Dundee goalkeeper Scott Bain leaving the club. The keeper is arguably the Dens Park sides best player, who just by chance play Sevco in Dundee this Sunday.
In case you haven’t noticed, since the old Rangers News ceased to exist, like the club itself, the new incarnation needed an in-house publication to spread the word. The cost of such an operation was always going to be prohibitive, so the Daily Record filled the void and is now nothing more than a club fanzine.
And yet some of our support still buy it…
