Sometimes when things get too much you just need to break into song.
When you’re down and out
When you’re on the street…
…When darkness comes
And pain is all around…
Perhaps the Rangers billionaire owner might comfort himself this weekend listening to the haunting lyrics of Simon and Garfunkel’s Bridge over Troubled Waters.
But believe, me the Squinty Bridge at Finnieston, which takes you into the world of Govan and Rangers really is a bridge over troubled waters.
As he sits in his palatial surroundings in Monaco sipping on a glass of red while nibbling a garibaldi he may looks back at the last week and think:
‘That was the week that was.’
Well I have news for the Motherwell-born billionaire.
I can exclusively reveal that the week isn’t over yet!
Could a major expose into expenditure be about to cause further cracks on the marble staircase at Ibrox?
At this very moment I know that some of Scotland’s sharpest legal brains are debating the placing of commas, the use of expressions that sound like spam and deliberating over headlines.
Only time will tell what the legal eagles decide.
I am reminded of another haunting line in Bridge over Troubled Waters:
When you need a friend
I’m sailing right behind..
The billionaire might find the friends who are sailing right behind have already jumped ship and sailing away from the Govan side! The tide is well and truly going out.
For some reason the words from ‘Keep the Customers Satisfied’ jump to mind, yes you know the lyrics:
Everywhere I go
I get slandered, libelled
I hear words I never heard in the Bible
And I’m one step ahead of the shoe shine
Two steps away from the county line
Just trying to keep my customers satisfied
