'Newcastle Five' deal a fraud


"If you take the four lads [January loan signings] from Newcastle, who probably won't kick a ball for us, out of the equation, it's not as big a squad as you'd imagine."

–Stuart McCall, Sunday March 15th

“Streete came and played the first game and pulled his hamstring. He was put in straight away and he wasn’t ready to play a high-tempo game because he had no football behind him.

March 21st.

“But he won’t play for us this season.”

March 21st (on Gael Bigirimana)

“serious doubt to be involved.”

March 21st (on Shane Ferguson)

The seriousness of these quotes cannot be underestimated. Quite simply Mike Ashley has shown nothing but staggering contempt for Rangers by using Murray Park as a hospital for five Newcastle players.

It is widely understood that wages are not really the problem, as Newcastle are still paying the lion’s share of the players’ salaries. The problem is the staggering disrespect Ashley (and Llambias & Leach) showed Rangers in using Ibrox as a station for which these players could get fully fit, under the pretence of a loan.

The deal was softened by including one relatively surplus player, Vuckic, as a ‘fit-out-of-the-box’ loanee who would be available from the start.

But the borderline impudence of Ashley and his henchmen to create a sham deal of five players joining on loan in order that four of them could be physically prepared for next season either as Newcastle first-team players (unlikely) or sold off to other clubs at a profit to Ashley (likely) is beyond reproach.

Ashley recently complained that Westminster is ‘violating his human rights’ in exposing letters he wrote to them to explain why he was ‘too busy’ to answer questions relating to job losses, meanwhile he happily violates his own employees by sanctioning zero-hour contracts within Sports Direct.

Well, Mr Ashley, you are also violating the rules and rights of Rangers, to be treated with respect and not the disdain you currently show us.

Readers of this blog will know my ‘support’ of him earlier last year was tentative. I tried to build a case why the man might be good for Rangers, but truthfully it was total conjecture. I never claimed otherwise. I knew he was using us for Sports Direct, but I did not count on him outright raping our resources to benefit both Newcastle and his business interests. The notion was his actions, while transparent, required a healthy Rangers in order that his other interests flourished. Clearly that was wrong. The man is not just ruthless, it is clear he has no regard for the well-being of anything other than his own pocket – to the cost of the well-being of anyone who dares step in his way. As Newcastle (and Rangers) have found out to their cost.

This loan ‘deal’ is just one of the litanies of immorality and potential rules/law-breaking Ashley is guilty of.

And it sums up why Rangers need this charlatan out our club as quick as possible.

  2. their is one main point though, any player taken on loan at any club have to have a medical, for insurance purposes and of course their fitness to be able to play a role, so somewhere their was a fuck up and I suggest our medical staff, for accepting them, whatever it is a futile exercise,which sums up our horrid season,were these 5 chosen when McCoist went to Newcastle when it was first muted?, would not surprise me, already signed unfit donkeys.

  5. Personally, I would like to see Ibrox Noise try and influence if they can, the Rangers official website to provide Rangers fans like myself with relevant information with regards to my club. The Rangers website should be the first to print all Rangers stories that circulate and perhaps provide a rumour mill in which stories that circulate can be denied or accepted. Practically all information that i come by is from other media outlets. Which surely cannot be right. A Rangers website for Rangers fans to be able to get an insight into Rangers Football Club would perhaps advertise Rangers in a better way and reconnect the Rangers family.

  6. Calm down. The deals had to be done in January or not at all so players not being ready to go in the first team straight away should hardly have been a deal breaker. As it was Vuckic was fit and Streete just needed match time to get up to full speed (before we got him injured). Mbabu's been fit for weeks, Ferguson was expected to be in training and building up match fitness by now, while Bigirimana did his hamstring in training for us after he joined. So basically all of them could have been playing for us now or soon if we'd been less unlucky with injuries, and they'd probably all have improved the team. We'd have stood to benefit from that so what's the problem? I don't think there's many loan deals go through where the parent club gives them to the lender solely for the lender's benefit so why should this be any different? We get some better additions to our squad and Newcastle either get their players match fit or put them in the shop window or whatever.

  7. There loans were an appeasement, nothing more. We were meant to thank Mr Ashley for lending us these magnificent young players and support him in his action to take over the club via the back door.
    Epic fail Mick!

  8. Seriously do you guys not get it........the deal was if they are fit they play, if they play Rangers pay full wages.....Rangers are skint so they stay injured. The players are on a pay per play basis.

  10. I was keen on the loanee deal in order to create competition for places but it turned out to be a bust. Remember the papers quoting Olivier Bernard that Rangers were 'guaranteed' promotion with these guys... there lies the problem. The half-hearted drivel that the Scottish tabloids peddle just adds to the confusion. But once again, this entire deal was the work of Ashley and his henchmen, who have since been removed from their posts. This nonsense will be over come May.
