A club playing in Scotland with 50k through the gates every home game cant keep themselves in the black.

What a fucking state.

Beautiful to see an almost mother nature type symphony of fans getting the club they deserve and vice versa.

It amazes me that they STILL can't stay in the black nowadays.  I sorta understood how the old Rangers managed to lose money, they had a competitive squad and paid some big wages and transfer fees but these days where is all the money going?  Surely they can't be paying anywhere near the same wages as Celtic for the squad they have and Celtic and the ticket prices for both clubs are pretty much the same (at least according to the BBC Price of Football survey).

I do love the way my FB feed is full of stuff about Rangers support being the biggest and bestest and most loyal in Britain.

The entire club is a bawhair from imploding but at least 16k went to Murrayfield eh

Ex-Rangers administrator David Whitehouse sues over arrest

A former administrator at Rangers FC, arrested during the probe into the club, is suing Scotland's chief constable and most senior prosecutor.

David Whitehouse, 51, is seeking £9m from Police Scotland's Philip Gormley and Lord Advocate James Wolffe QC.

The charges against the Cheshire businessman and his colleague Paul Clark were later dropped.

Mr Gormley and Mr Wolffe claim police and prosecutors acted in accordance with correct legal procedure.

Police arrested and charged Mr Whitehouse and Mr Clark during the investigation into businessman Craig Whyte's takeover of the club in 2011.

Charges were dropped following a court hearing before judge Lord Bannatyne in June 2016.

Lawyers acting for Mr Whitehouse claimed their client was "unlawfully detained" by detectives in November 2014.

Loss of earnings

They also said that throughout the period of detention, there was no reasonable grounds to suspect that Mr Whitehouse had broken the law.

Mr Whitehouse also claimed that police obtained evidence without following proper legal procedure.

An indictment against Mr Whitehouse was issued without any "evidential basis", his lawyers said.

The actions of police and prosecutors are said to have damaged his reputation of being a first-class financial professional and led to a £1.75m loss in earnings.

On Wednesday, lawyers acting for Mr Whitehouse appeared during a short procedural hearing at the Court of Session in Edinburgh.

It emerged during proceedings that Mr Whitehouse's colleague Mr Clark is also suing the chief constable and Lord Advocate.

Judge Lord Arthurson arranged for a four-day hearing into the legal issues surrounding the case to take place at a later date.

Asset sale

Lawyers are examining whether the two actions should be rolled into a single case.

The case has emerged from the circumstances surrounding Mr Whyte's takeover of Rangers in 2011.

Mr Whitehouse and Mr Clark worked for Duff & Phelps and were appointed as administrators of the club in February 2012.

Four months later, the company's business and assets were sold to a consortium led by Charles Green for £5.5m.

Police Scotland launched an investigation into the circumstances surrounding the takeover.

Mr Whyte was cleared of any wrongdoing by a jury in 2017.

Mr Whitehouse believes that his human rights were breached as a consequence of the actions of the police and prosecutors.

The chief constable and the Lord Advocate claim that police and prosecutors acted in accordance with correct legal procedure.

They claim that Mr Whitehouse's human rights were not breached and that he did not suffer any loss or injury as a consequence of the actions taken by the police and prosecutors.

They also believe the case should be dismissed because the Lord Advocate is exempt from civil action from people who were the subject of a legal investigation.

How are this shower of charlatans still going? Is there a point at which an external body has the authority to step in and give them a deadline to be financially sound or they're out? Or do we have to wait for administration to happen again? Is there anything to prevent them pulling the same "get out of liquidation free" trick a second time?

Aye, Sir David Murray offers 'the company' 16M for 'the club', the lenders get most of their loans back and the poor old 'company' shareholders and other creditors are shafted.  'The club', meanwhile, are debt-free and don't go anywhere near admin or liquidation.

I was convinced he was at the wind-up. That will be a fantastic read if true.

If Craig Whyte does have a book coming out he could buy them again because he really will have wealth off the radar with the sales it will get
