Downfall: How Rangers FC Self Destructed
Fundamental reading for anyone interested in the history of British football, Downfall - How Rangers FC Self Destructed contains a wealth of exclusive material as well as collecting the prophetic articles by investigative journalist Phil Mac Giolla Bhain. Phil gained the attention of notable writers such as James MacMillan, Professor Roy Greenslade and sports journalist Brian McNally - who compared his work to that of Woodward and Bernstein - by breaking the wall of silence of mainstream football journalism in Scotland, denouncing its corruption. With an introduction by Alex Thomson of channel Four News, Downfall. How Rangers FC Self Destructed has four sections which expose Rangers tax strategy and the luscious dinners for major reporters, as well as detailing the failure of corporate governance by the SFA and SPL and the culture of Ranger s supporters and how they failed to mobilise. The Fan's Revolution, when SPL fans held back from buying season tickets until they were sure their Chairmen would not let Rangers Newco back into the SPL, is documented also.
