There is a meeting of the Sevco High Command this morning.
I would not be surprised if there is a re-visiting of a discussion that was had yesterday by two of its dignified members.
My information is that there was a quintessentially British discussion between a serious professional and an immaculately coiffed factotum.
The latter was very unhappy about the decision to speak to the press apropos the excellent Mr Graeme Stuart Murty.
The magnificently maned functionary was channeling the anger of Mr David Cunningham King apropos this unauthorised statement.
However, the serious professional had ready-made answers to all the Churchillian bluster.
“There is no money to employ anyone else” was the seriously professional reply given.
Moreover, the serious professional reported that his phone had been hopping with calls from concerned sponsors.
They wanted to know what the hell was going on at the Holding Company Vehicle.
Consequently, the serious professional decided that it was important that a message of stability was sent out.
Hence the confirmation of the very excellent Mr Murty “for the foreseeable future” as manager of the Engine Room Subsidiary.
This answer did not satisfy the immaculately coifed functionary and he then re-iterated that Dave was seriously unimpressed that this statement had been made without his say so.
To which I’m told that the serious professional replied:
“Yeah, it’s a bit frustrating when you don’t know what’s coming out in a statement. Isn’t it?”
Silence was the reply to that observation and then the serious professional added:
“I’m trying to clean up your mess here”.
My information is that the Ibrox Three will forgo an Employment Tribunal and go straight to court.
I think we can call this a developing story…
