With news of a TV movie being made about the current Leveson Inquiry, into the practises and ethics of the British press, we think that the ongoing epic saga centred around Glasgow Rangers Football Club should also be considered for a film adaptation.
Let’s face it, those of us familiar with this story know that since the club’s entry into administration back in February there’s been a series of shocking revelations, accusations of double dealings and deceit. Also, there’s a solid cast of main characters and the story up till now has been filled with outrageous twists and turns.
But what if this extraordinary confusing chronicle, about one of Glasgow’s most famous clubs, received a big screen adaptation? Who would flesh out those involved? We tried to come up with some suggestions and before this kicks off into an all too familiar stramash about Rangers and Celtic remember, this is just for a bit of much needed light relief from a completely neutral standpoint.
So sit back doon on yer arse and put oot that molotov cocktail.
