Rangers make people redundant

Being made redundant must suck balls so let's all applaud two unlucky chaps at Rangers who have sacrificed themselves, making sure they get the very best life boats first.

Gregg Wylde and Mervan Celik are two players that auto-correct seems to really hate on my Mac and I know what you're thinking, "you have auto-correct?!" and yes I do.  It makes everything seem so red and angry.  In other news these two players have decided to leave the sinking Ibrox club in order to float to safety, and also to make sure that some of the less famous crew members with families don't have to join the dole queue. Gregg Wylde told the BBC:
"I volunteered to walk with no redundancy package today to help the other people in the club who have families, like the kitchen staff. 
"I offered to walk away yesterday and the club told me today that they would accept that offer.
"At the moment I have nowhere to go and I don't have another club.
"I don't know what is going to happen next but I thought it was important to play my part in saving Rangers."
As much as I don't joke about being delighted that Rangers have found themselves in this mess, I actually feel genuinely sorry for the players who just do it as a job and didn't realise what it was they were getting into when they signed.  Wylde's gesture might spark a mass voluntary exodus of over-paid footballers from the Glasgow side and if they feel generous enough, they might even perform a sacrificial ceremony where Sone Aluko is offered to the Greek god of money, Plutus.  If there's one thing the Greeks are good at its clever financial planning.
