100 days – Day 3
A major Rangers shareholder, Sandy Easdale, told BBC Scotland yesterday that the financial situation at Ibrox is “fragile”.
“The club’s gone into administration once… I don’t think it would survive a second one”
Additionally, a senior source within Ibrox has described the League One champions as “being on a life-support machine”.
Nowadays, where are the men who are loyal to their club – people of honesty and integrity? One such was Sandy Jardine, a gentleman and a most skilled player for Glasgow Rangers, my own team – Hearts – and, of course, Scotland. I awoke this morning to the news that he had died last night. He was only 65.
A commentator has written that it was not just his talent that set him apart, but his his sense of right and wrong
He was a quiet man but a strong one, and was respected throughout the footballing community for his decency and moral courage
How unlike the spivs and wide boys who hijacked his beloved Club and dragged it down into the murky regions of allegedly dodgy dealing and financial peril.
RIP, Sandy Jardine, player par excellence and all round decent bloke.

About meenisterAn ordained Church of Scotland Minister since 1974. Started off in Doune which is near Stirling, before moving to Trinidad for four years; on my return to Scotland, I was a rural minister in Perthshire and then was asked to become Minister at St.Michael's Inveresk where I spent eleven happy years. A short ministry in Guernsey followed and since 1999, I was a full time healthcare Chaplain in the town of Dumfries in SW Scotland, retiring from that post in December 2012. I started this blog on 6 May 2012, soon after my wife, Helen, was diagnosed with secondary cancer - it was a sort of diversion and still is, following her death on 16 June. I hope it shows that there is a lighter side to religion, that it's not gloom and doom and that we can sometimes laugh at ourselves in a self-effacing way. Some posts are, however, I hope provoking and food for thought.
