I note that The People are being soothed by the good news that their manager was all but signed up to a new deal.
A cynic might note that there is no quote from the man himself.
For the avoidance of doubt dear reader, this is top Level churnalism.
The reality is that there has been no official contact recently between the Sevco manager and his employers apropos this matter.
There IS an agreement in place from last year that the Admirable Warburton and his dependable deputy Mr. Weir would have a salary review.
One Ibrox insider speculated yesterday that the Admirable Warburton might just have had enough of the “circus” that is Sevco.
It is worth remembering that the ex-City trader is comfortable with numbers.
Moreover, he recently crunched some figures for the Sevco board.
The chaps in the Blue Room were told that the Holding Company Vehicle had been very fortunate with injuries.
Apparently a normal injury profile for a squad of professional footballers in 15-20%.
The ex-Brentford supremo let the Blue Room chaps know that the current squad couldn’t cope with that level of attrition.
However, no doubt the Admirable Warburton will be delighted with the capture of Joseph Anthony Barton.
He isn’t the only one.
I understand that the agents who represent Wes Foderingham, Rob Kiernan, Martyn Waghorn and Danny Wilson have been in touch with Sevco to express their delight at the new wage structure at Ibrox.
It is, of course, a great pity that the Engine Room Subsidiary will not be in European competition next year.
Mr. Barton’s fluency in the French language would have been value added.
