The Sun and Hollicom?

I've always been of the opinion that Rangers are right to not get involved in going after Celtic with regards Cetlic's paedophilia cover up that has shamed them for half a century.

It does appear clear though that Celtic, via their shameful PR hire of Hollicom, are quite happy to get the mud to stick to as many other clubs as possible so the entire thing can be lumped as a "Scottish football issue" and everyone gets the same punishment (if there is one at all) and remarks on how to deal with it going forward from a child protection point of view.

You'd expect nothing less of the rancid cunts though.

As others have said, it just strengthens the need for a full independent inquiry though.

The times has constantly been reporting the truth about Celtic
The Times is an actual newspaper. The Sun, Record, Evening Times etc are no more than ridiculous parodies that lift ‘stories’ from social media to get click-bait for advertising. I wouldn’t line a budgies cage with their pathetic crap.

I'm actually pretty happy with this. The bheasts are obviously spending the biscuit hip money on propaganda as opposed to getting in a replacement for the lego muncher.

We all know the truth. We know Celtic knew all along and Lawell knows to this day. They're in it up to their scummy eyeballs.

Keep writing to your MPs, advocacy groups and that bawbag of a justice secretary.

Read this article in the sun online, to me it looks very much like a campaign to ramp up talk of an abuse scandal at Ibrox.

So are Hollicom and the sun joined at the hip with this shite?


SICK FANTASY Ladbrokes SPFL fantasy football hijacked by sickos using sectarian and child abuse slurs as team names

SICKOS shamed the SPFL’s fantasy footie contest by using sectarian and child abuse slurs as team names.

Dozens of sides in Ladbrokes’ £10,000 tournament include the words “fenian” and “hun”, while other vile monikers are linked to TV beast Jimmy Savile and the Celtic Boys Club scandal.

Dave Scott, of anti-bigotry charity Nil By Mouth, said: “It’s a depressing indictment of where we are.”

And a footie sex abuse victim tonight accused warped fans of mocking the scandal with the vile fantasy team names.


The ex-Rangers youth, 51, said online bigots were making light of paedophile traumas by entering sides called “Big Jock Knew” and “Savile’s U9s” in the SPFL contest.

And anti-sectarian campaigners also hit out at teams featuring the names of Irish paramilitary groups and slogans.

The victim — targeted aged 16 by dead Ibrox scout Harry Dunn — said: “It’s not something you should joke about. Some of these people trivialise it. They need to get a grip.

“They don’t know how bad it was for guys who were abused.

“People shouldn’t be posting stuff about it thinking it’s a funny team name.
“Don’t people have the mental capability to come up with something else than this?”

SPFL sponsors Ladbrokes launched the Premiership Fantasy Football contest last month. Gamers are given a budget of £180million to spend on 11 players and five subs in a bid to win £10,000.

Promos for the popular game — thought to have around 20,000 entrants — included a photoshoot featuring all 12 top-flight captains.

Some of the names were removed after contact from the Scottish Sun

But mini-leagues have been plagued with dozens of disgusting team names.

There were titles referencing telly paedo Jimmy Savile, including ‘Savile’s U9s’ and ‘Savile’s Young Boys’.

And 21 sides used the phrase ‘Big Jock Knew’ — a slur targeting claims Lisbon Lions boss Jock Stein failed to report Celtic Boys Club abuse to cops in the 1970s

Another side was ‘Tiocfaidh ar lads’, in a nod to IRA slogan ‘Tiocfaidh Ar La’, meaning ‘Our day will come’. Others name-checked hunger striker Bobby Sands.

Leigh Griffiths was another target after his troubles

There was a series of teams labelled ‘Fenian army’ and one called ‘Hunskelper’ among the top 50 sides.

Numerous sides had ‘FTP’ or ‘F*** the Pope’ in their title, while some showed support for Northern Irish loyalist groups the UDA and UVF. Another was christened ‘F*** Leigh Griffiths’.

Dave Scott, of anti-bigotry charity Nil By Mouth, called it “depressing”.

He added: “It’s a shame people can’t enjoy a simple fantasy football league without it being taken over by bigotry.


“I’m sadly not surprised by it. People just need to grow up.

“Some people seem determined to make Scottish football look foolish.”

The SPFL today removed a series of dodgy monikers and replaced them with “Team Name” after being contacted by The Scottish Sun.

League chiefs warned if players don’t change to a more acceptable permanent name they’ll be thrown out of the game.

An SPFL spokesman said: “The game rules specify that offensive names will be removed and players that refuse to amend them will see their accounts suspended.”

The game is understood to be organised by a French tech firm on behalf of the SPFL.

A source said: “The company sift out the vast majority of unacceptable names but obviously some do fall through the net.”

Ladbrokes was contacted for comment.

Scottish Sun columnist Bill Leckie yesterday said Celtic and Rangers fans’ sectarian and bullying behaviour must be acted on by SFA and SPFL chiefs.

And Gers recently revealed plans to send fans caught singing sectarian songs on rehabilitation courses in a new scheme.

Not sure how the apparent mocking of child abuse is sectarian. A big fckin IRA banner sanctioned by a club, THAT is sectarian.

Sick tarrier bastards will stop at nothing, they have absolutely no shame. Deflecting paedophile activity has always been a hugely significant part of their very being.
Hints and innuendo are their stock in trade for trying to deflect attention away from their own sordid crimes onto innocent others. We've long come to expect this of the RC cult and its associates, however, when so called business professionals stoop to this level on their behalf you really have to wonder about their character and morals.
Shame on them.
You better believe if they had a single bit of evidence of any of their claims regarding other clubs they would have been plastered all over the papers years ago by their many shameless mhedia friends.

They have a photo of saville with a red, white and blue jacket.They are up to their necks in the mire and they are throwing about all the lies to try and deflect.
Everyone knows who the evil perpetrators are in this sordid affair.

As bad as the Record is the Sun ramps things up to a different level. I agree with the OP that there is some link between the tarriers PR and this rag.

They are very clever about these attacks as it's nothing sensationalist, rather a constant drop feed of negativity that is designed to stick in the readers mind when thinking of Rangers. The club employ Professional PR companies that should be aware of such tactics.

There will be a tipping point where the club will eventually have to respond.

At least three posts on this page alone give the impression that these kind of stories are only appearing because of Hollicolm. That's patently nonsense. They'd be appearing with or without their influence.
Would they really? With a comment from an alleged victim of ‘Rangers scout’ Harry Dunn? Said alleged victim has kept quiet for decades but broke cover to comment on a story about Fantasy football league team names.

Yeah that seems legit.

At what juncture do the Rangers board start playing the game ?

Celtic employed a team of paedophiles over decades and covered up the sexual abuse of children over that time. The Sun instead use an unsubstantiated source and baseless allegation anyone could make up to besmirch Rangers for that purpose while the biggest paedophile ring in world sport existed at Celtic FC with the convictions to prove so right on Glasgow’s doorstep.

You really couldn’t make it up. Rangers are a soft touch, in terms of the media, at times we’re like an old golf club committee and refuse to acknowledge or tackle the social warfare aimed at the club. Amazing really. It’s a problem that’s been here for easily the last decade and it’s only going to accelerate.

It’s going to get very much worse for us in relation to lies and smears. We should be declaring open warfare on this paedophile facilitating mob who champion themselves as the bastion of ‘ sporting integrity ‘ in this country.
Just what are we waiting for ?

The Sun wasn't a bastion of truth, honour and integrity pre-Hollicolm and these slanderous Rangers stories aren't anything new. Aligning this stuff with Hollicolm when it's been their MO for years is in some ways letting the Sun off the hook.

In the last year The Sun have lied about Rangers fans racially abusing Shay Logan, ran a smear campaign against a lassie caught singing TBB and then subsequently attacked her father and lied about Celtic fans being pelted with blue cards from the Copland Road.

Don't think this is new. This is small fry compared to what they've done.

Hopefully fans from other clubs as well as ours were responsible for the team names calling them out as peados.
Similar to other teams fans are now calling the scum out at games.

I think Rangers should make a donation to a child abuse charity!

Then call for an independent inquiry into abuse claims in Scottish football

Very easy for a competent, professional comms dept to do. "Following reports in the mhedia concerning this club and others and representations from our supporters, Glasgow Rangers calls for an open, independent and immediate inquiry into abuse claims across Scottish Football."

No matter how much they attempt to deflect and deny with ever increasing volume of ludicrous stories, the reality is that their supposed greatest ever Manager and club captain both knew of horrific criminal activity against youngsters and both refused to contact the police or even social workers. This is what their aim has always been about, to protect both Stein and McNeil and their shameful behaviour.

Tell you what. Publicly support the campaign for a full public inquiry into child abuse at that vile club, and anywhere else in Scottish football, get justice for the victims and punishment for the perpetrators and facilitators and this whole sorry business can be dealt with. Treat the disease not the symptoms.

It's an attempt to drag Rangers into this to deflect from their known paedophile ring

If we were doing this, these same hacks would be accusing us of whataboutery

Its clear what they're doing, mate. They want their scumbaggery and cover up to be placed under an umbrella inquiry involving all Scottish clubs in order to deflect and dilute the massive volume of criminality and abuse that went on at Crime Scene FC.

Child rape deflection seems to be pretty straightforward fare for Hollicom but they're never gonna successfully spin losing four goals at home in Europe after being ahead twice.
Even gullible tarriers aint swallowing that one.

I'm sure they're good at what they do but this board has an unhealthy obsession with this Hollicom mob.

They aren't an all powerful media mogul who has scuddies of all the editors at Scotlands papers for christ sake, just a company doing a job they've been employed to do.

They option is there for Rangers to do similar if we wish.
I must have missed Rangers covering up a half century of child rape.
We never have, nor ever will need filthy sub human paedo apologists to do our bidding.

Your suggestion that we use them is almost as bad as the savillites actually hiring them.

This guy Scott calls it .depressing'. It can't be that depressing when he gets a lucrative wage out of propagating the myth. I bet he is depressed all the way to the bank.
