Former CEO of the SPL, Roger Mitchell, has been at it again, this time raising doubts over Rangers ability to see out the current economic crisis facing football clubs and survive long enough for football to return.

Barely a peep has been heard from Celtic supporting Mitchell since departing these shores but on an almost weekly basis throughout the SPFL’s handling of a resolution vote on the future of the 2019/20 season, he has been front and centre on Sky Sports making a series of unsubstantiated claims.

Dick Advocaat celebrates winning a Rangers treble

Who topped scored for Rangers in Dick Advocaat's first season in charge?

His latest tweet, and proclamation that Rangers were already in “dire straits” is a line frequently pedalled by Celtic bloggers despite the club being debt free and owning all of it’s assets. There is also the small matter of significant investment already in the pipeline, a share issue and a new kit deal set to be announced, never let a lie get in the way of a good story and all that.

Gers fans responded to his Tweet and it’s safe to say, they gave it the respect it deserved.

There is a well known saying that is relevant for this very situation – “if you want to know what is going on at Ibrox, ask a Celtic fan”, if they tell themselves something often enough, they truly start to believe it.
