IT just so happened that the Celtic captain was speaking to the media on the day it emerged that their historic rivals were to be liquidated.
THE ticking timebomb set in March went off at 12.01am this morning.
AS their fate was being discussed, but not decided, by the chairman and chief executives of the SPL clubs at Hampden yesterday, Rangers did their bit on the field to safeguard their immediate future.
Ally McCoist last night asked Rangers supporters to be open-minded about Bill Miller's takeover bid as the American and the Blue Knights endured another day without receiving preferred bidder status from the club's administrators, Duff & Phelps.
IF any one party has a right to be especially aggrieved about how this Rangers in administration soap opera has panned out so far, it is probably the players.
