As regular readers here will know, I consider Mr Stewart Robertson to be one of the few competent professionals currently in the Sevco High Command.
He has previous experience at a senior football club (Motherwell FC) and an overall impressive CV.
In recent weeks he has been mainly working from home and no harm in that at all.
I do that myself, and it’s great for the work-life balance.
Last week some senior members of the High Command wanted to meet up with Mr Robertson.
Indeed, they were very keen for the quintessentially British conclave to go ahead.
I understand that they wanted to go over some issues with him before the Rangers International Football Club (RIFC) AGM next week.
One thing in particular which these dignified gents wanted to explore was a certain email apropos the world famous and highly prestigious Lion Brand.
Apparently, someone had emailed the Holding Company Vehicle about the relationship between the Lion Brand and the Engine Room Subsidiary.
It is, at this point, not clear if the author of the communication was a concerned shareholder or just an ordinary Sevco supporter.
What I can reveal is that Mr Robertson replied to this email very quickly indeed.
Well, he is a thoroughly professional chap.
What seems to be concerning several members of the High Command is that whoever sent this email knew their way around the organisational and IT landscape of Sevco.
My information is that Mr Robertson wasn’t the original recipient of this communication and it was forwarded to him.
There is no suggestion that there was anything untoward about Mr Robertson’s prompt reply.
Indeed his answer was as thorough as it was evidence based.
Therefore I am at something of a loss why some members of the High Command are so perplexed apropos this apparently innocent correspondence.
This has augmented their fears that some embarrassing questions could be asked from the floor regarding the Holding Company Vehicle’s relationship with the Lion Brand.
The meeting with Mr Robertson was duly arranged.
Moreover, it was to be off-site in some high-class hotel and not in Argyle House…
Sadly, at the last moment, Mr Robertson felt unwell.
Consequently, the meeting did not go ahead.
I hope that he will be fully recovered in time for the AGM.
