Hello everybody its been a few weeks, looks like nothing has changed...same old patter. Jim McAlister is retiring topic starts and just over an hour later the first reply of the Rae/GC and the us

There's complete cynicism from the support about Golden Casket's motives in everything they do. That cynicism is entirely down to their own management of the club over the last 20 years, with the last

The point I'm making CHC The election was stolen, we hear over and over and over.........without a shread of evidence that can be substantiated, provided or held up in Court. Yeah but it's a fact

Time to get this thread back on track instead of talking about the £500k.

Jim McAlister is heading to Ibrox to work with Rangers kit man Jimmy Bell. This a good move for Jim as he's a big Rangers fan and being about Ibrox on a daily basis will be like nirvana for him. This will give him the financial security he is obviously looking for. Jimmy Bell has been at Ibrox for 40 years.

Wonder if there might be a coaching opportunity there at some point too, down the age groups.

Jim needs to get his badges first but the answer to that is yes.

Jim has B license. Think he's working on his A.

Apologies if this is a really stupid question.  But does being the bloke who puts the soft rinse into the washing machine for the kit man at Ibrox offer more job security and satisfaction than playing for a living?  I know that Jim's a fan of the Rangers, but this is quite a sad indictment of the state of Scottish football.  And could they not hold the position open to let him see out the season?

This is great news. Genuinely. 
 

Jimmy Bell is one of the great characters of the Scottish game. I’ve had the pleasure of meeting him a couple of times at social functions. Just listening to his stories about Rangers would be worth the opportunity alone.

Well done Jim, onwards and upwards to Scotland’s greatest club. I think if we’re being honest with ourselves being at Rangers would be nirvana for most of us.

Take note MCT/Rae, the club should be moving the Earth to bring a Rangers XI to Cappielow for his testimonial. As I’ve said before, get Nacho Novo involved, he was a proud servant for both clubs.

I don't really blame Jim for taking the job security, given that this club's dying on its arse and he'd be out of contract in a few months anyway. But we're down a central midfielder (and captain) now in the middle of a relegation battle.

He could have got job security in a local call centre or driving deliveries for a supermarket or Amazon etc.  

Let's face it, it's the draw of the Harry Dunn's that has led to him turning his back on Morton.  If he was a bit more patient he could have had a nice testimonial and payday when the supporters are allowed back, but no, joining 'thu craft' means more to some, even if it is to be on their cleaning staff.

Is it definite that's what he's off to do?

Walking out during a relegation battle when Captain and part of the interim management team was hard to take but pretty shoddy if it's to be a kitman's assistant. 

He could have been the actual kit man at Morton rather than understudy if that was his dream seeing as we don't even have one.

I don't particularly blame him either, he's entitled to make that choice, but in doing so he should also be walking away from any idea of testimonials or fond farewells...or getting brought on for no good reason at all in a game we had to win to give him a send-off. That's the choice you make if you piss off half-way through your contract, it'd be different if he'd been forced to retire with injuries.

That is a good point and I had forgotten he'd even come on.

It's hard to avoid the conclusion that, despite having a manager, we're a bit of a rudderless ship.
