More cuts at the Herald and Evening Times


Chris Jack, who covers Rangers for the Herald and Evening Times, is the highest profile victim of the lay-offs at the two papers. He has been put on the UK Government furlough scheme and will be paid 80% of his salary by the UK Government for the next three months. There are now only two sports journos covering for both the Herald and Evening Times, Graeme McGarry and Matthew Lindsay. And they have also had their salaries slashed.

No surprise Jack was singled out by the rabid SNP supporting hierarchy in there.

Anyone any idea how much a journalist like jack earns ? Because it will be a big loss for any of them getting 80% of their salary fine but the part people forget is “ up to £2500” .

I don’t think many families these days could survive on that for any length of time especially if used to a bigger pay packet

All well and good concentrating on the tarrier journalists but there are a lot of good bears work behind the scenes in the likes of printing etc. I have good pals about to lose their jobs

As sad as the times are for Chris i hope these two rags and a few others sink. Here's hoping he finds a more favourable employer.

I have not bought that rag for years

Ronny Cully...Celtic signing Crespo among increased advertising of the fiddle de Dee bands with their quaint wee oiaaaraaay ditties.

Crespo of course..like the tour of Japan...never happened!

Clickbait crap with every other story somehow getting noncefc namedropped into it and the more than willing obsessed pond life who inhabit the comments section who constantly post their incessant rangers died drivel and seem to comment on every Rangers story yet never on their own team stories.

The article says they’re going further than the Government £30k limit and paying 80% of total wages.

if you were to ask me a Rangers friendly journalist in Scotland the only one I could tell you would be Chris.

Hope he still does alright after this.
A recent piece by Jackson, the one where he begged septic be handed the league I think it was, or it might have been one of the hatchet jobs on David Graham, or it might have been him slating Dave King, suggested there were plenty of Rangers friendly journalists out there.
I too, struggled to think of one beyond this guy and the McDermott lad at the Express.
On the other hand, there seems to be plenty more who, if they aren’t dyed in the wool tramps, they are definitely Rangers detractors and haters.
