Schadenfreude is an emotion unworthy of FB (although he quite enjoys it now and then). No person from Aberdeen, FB's home town, would feel anything remotely near schadenfreude at the possibility that Rangers might be wiped off the map.
FB has noted the news about the £24m that Rangers' administrators cannot trace and confirms that he does not have it - but then nor do Rangers. He has noted the suggestions that other clubs cannot do without Rangers - but he is confident that go-ahead Edinburgh club Carlton will do perfectly well. He has noted that Mr Cameron, the UK Prime Minister, visited Scotland yesterday presumably to retrieve the UK stockpile of Union Jacks which is held at Ibrox........
Instead FB will confine his emotional outburst to sincere congratulations to Scotland batsmen Richie Berrington on his maiden first Class century and Simon Smith's maiden half century in the match against UAE.
See that Freude - it's much better without the Schaden.
PS - Fantasy Bob would like to apologise for any impression that he may give that he does not feel any emotion that could be described as schadenfreude at the reported demise of the Sun newspaper.
