Want to buy a soccer team? Bid now!

We knew things were bleak for Scottish Premier League club Hearts, but we never expected this. 

The club, regular competitors in the UEFA Europa League, have been listed on BusinessForSale.com. BDO, the group placed in charge of the club’s administration, took the unusual step in an effort to garner additional bids for the struggling side. 

So if you’ve got some spare change lying around, and are interested in buying a club with a “squad of 22 players, together with a highly skilled, loyal and experienced workforce,” Hearts might be the team for you!!

Georgios Samaras gives Celtic its first away win in the Champions League...ever!

No laughing matter

(Ally McCoist looks on at New Rangers.)

From Scotland comes this gem: Falkirk have suspended their PA announcer after he jokingly referred to Glasgow Rangers as “Sevco Franchise” during the halftime score announcement.

A harmless bit of fun, you’d think, but not to aggrieved Rangers fans who promptly deluged The Bairns with complaints. All this ruckus overshadowed the fact that last weekend the Glasgow giants set a record:  Sev— er, I mean Rangers, beat East Stirling 5-1 at Ibrox in front of the biggest crowd ever at a fourth division match, 49,118.

McCoist, for his part, was a bit more sanguine, saying that if the Falkirk PA man “wanted to have a wee dig, he can have a wee dig. I don’t have any problem with it at all.”

A sensational goal today from Scotland, where Dundee United’s Johnny Russell buried their cross-street (no, really!) rivals Dundee with this slick finish.

This was in the first Tayside derby in over seven years but as it happens, the Arabs beat the Dees by the same scoreline in a pre-season “transfer kitty special.”

For those of you wondering why Dundee United are called the “Arabs,” it is because they once played on a frozen pitch covered in sand. Scots humor, that.
