    Wylde left without a redundancy package, and stated that he was leaving money for those who had families to support and had a greater need, i.e. kitchen staff at Ibrox. Say what you will about Rangers, and I do hate the bastards, but I can't help but wish Wylde luck and say "good show".

    If he's being sincere, aye.

    However, that is exactly the way I would spin it if I wanted a quick exit before the walls cave in, but was concerned about my image and the goodwill directed towards me. Redundancy package matters little to him, and even less in the grand scheme of things.

    He's just been smart, or well advised. Either way, I admire him for that. Smart kid.

    ****ing hell, I just found out that the Poppy Campaign has been added to Rangers list of creditors owed... They didn't give a single penny from their "Poppy Appeal" to the campaign. What absolute scumbags.

    Aye, but football is so swamped with ****heads and greedy post-chavs that it's heartening to see someone who isn't actually overwhelmed by a desire for money. Particularly stinging to me now that Gavin Rae has further pointed out how important Arnason is to our club, and the bastard wants more money than we can afford to pay him...

    As I said, his motives are probably equally as commercially-driven as everyone else's. He's just been advised that this approach is better for him in the long-term (generates goodwill, gets him press attention- and good press, at that- and frees him from a contract at a club where he wasn't getting a fair crack of the whip to sign for another club straightaway).

    I admire his smarts.

    Re Arnason, I do believe every player is entitled to demand a fair value for their services. It's the free market, after all. 'Playing for the jersey' expectations only apply to boyhood fans, badge-kissers and players who owe the club one (club resurrected career, etc. see Larsson). The real evil is the inflation of wages post-Sky deal that has created such a massive wealth gap in football.

    Wylde seemed like a decent prospect, went out in a good fashion.

    Good luck to him, I guess. I wonder who they'll lose next Money's on Bocanegra.

    Need to take that back about the Poppy Campaign, they clarified that the rumours were unfounded and that they have in fact received money from Rangers.

    Anyway, I was thinking, the SPL rewards for 1st and 2nd place are probably peanuts to Celtic and Rangers (at least prior to administration), but would be of enormous help to the other clubs. Yet another argument in favour of Rangers going.

    If the appeal fails, the ban will be extended to 72 hours. Are you sure you wish to go through with this?

    If he stayed with Aberdeen for a few more seasons, he could prove to be a vital asset in bringing us up to the top 6, maybe even 3rd or 4th. He's obviously a very talented player, and he's at a club that has nowhere to go but up, which he could play a great part in. How could probably get a much better deal after a few seasons of doing good work with us then leaving now after just the one season. He's also probably going to win the AFC player of the year and goal of the year awards.
