Livi under scrutiny again...

Post by Bertie Bassett on Tue Feb 23, 2016 7:04 pm

Apparently the club is being scrutinised again with regard to allegations of Rankine still being involved with club...saw a small item on this in the Daily Ragcord

Saw this on Facebook earlier. Somebody is gunning for us it seems. If it is connected to boardroom politics between individuals the thing is that it is the players and fans who suffer since it is always Livingston FC named in complaints/litigation.

Seen a post on P&B about that, will it ever end!

If the compliance officer gives us a points deduction again we're def relegated, just sucks the enthusiasm out of you having this crap going on every season.

Really wouldn't surprise me, don't think anyone really thought/thinks that Rankine was away.

Ford has denied it though, so it's obviously all okay and nothing bad will happen, we're fine.

Do these so called 'journalists' not get as bored as us when it comes to producing such vile pish?

I wouldn't believe that rag of a newspaper if it told me it was raining without looking out the window first.

Ford has denied it so I'll give the club the benefit of the doubt unless concrete evidence emerges. Jeezo can we not have one season without "Livi accused" headlines.

This is not going to end well for Livi and Ford has dug the hole deeper with his comments in the article linked above.

trust me on this one folks, there will be no outcome from this as its all bollocks

Rankine defo has no involvement with the club other than as a creditor.

I can safely say this and with confidence but cant say how

Lets not forget everyone said that about East Fife, they will take action on reasonable suspicion and balance of probabilities.
This will cost Livi.

Actually the situation seems to be more of a Dumbarton than East Fife... His only involvement with Dumbarton is as a creditor so there was no case to answer.

Having said that there was no real case to answer on East Fife either, especially when comparing the Rankine position with Mike Ashley and the loan players that went to Ibrox

The elephant in the room though is Ford and his grasp on what he owns. His statements on the matter make it look like a) He is a fool. or  b) there are murky goings on down Almondvale Way.

In his latest comment he says "For the avoidance of doubt, there are four major shareholders in the club and none are called Rankine."

Actually none of the shareholders are called Ford either!

Given some of the dodgy decisions that continue to be made at Livi, it doesn't take a rocket scientist to conclude that a dodgy bastard like Rankine is still involved in some shape or form.
