You do realise that the EBT case found against Rangers.

You do realise that is not even nearly true?

Sevco will sell out their allocations at away games.

Sorted it for you. ;)

Might not at Hampden, but I'm pretty sure most of the major Town & City clubs in the Scottish Game could do likewise in the 3rd division. The biggest capacity is about 2½k (no disrespect meant to those clubs in the 3rd division).

The SPL was founded to deny money to the other clubs in the lower leagues. Integrity was the furthest thing from any SPL chairmans mind when they dreamed up the SPL.

Other clubs have cheated their creditors and repaid a fraction of what they owed. Some have actually done this and escaped with NO punishment whatsoever.

At the end of the day The Rangers will come out of this the other side in reasonably good health...The SFL clubs will benefit from the money that The Rangers generate. Celtic will be able to cut their costs and still saunter to the title..The biggest losers financially will be the other SPL clubs.

Maybe so, but we'll have a bit of dignity. More than can be said for some.

Just a thought, can the SFA not suspend the share?

Leaving Oldco unable to transfer it to Newco until the SFA have dealt with the prima facie case?

no other club has brought the game into disrepute by systematically defrauding the public purse.

Yes they have. Look at the attendance figures given by Scottish clubs before electronic turnstiles..It was going on for years and years. :rolleyes:

Good luck proving that...and even if it's true, do you think squirrelling away some turnstile money is comparable to abusing a tax scheme to the tune of tens of millions and then simply not paying £15m of PAYE, VAT etc?

Confusion breaks out during the HMRC EBT investigation as Directors of The Club formerly known as Rangers are asked to identify the main culprits.......

Rangers couldn't even sell out their allocation at McDiarmid for what was their last ever game.

Who said all TV money would be lost?

We didn't sell one of our prized assets for a measley 200k this season so have had to cut our budget by 4k a week. These are the kind of margins we're talking about

But every other club will be in the same boat!

Look at what my own has suffered after years of overspending. When we got relegated we had a shite squad on far too much money. Look at us now, we are playing young Scottish players with the hope of selling them on to a higher level, ideally for me within Scotland. That could happen right across the board if SPL chairmen did the right thing and voted no.

They deserve it as well, it's not as if it is just being opportunist.

OK. To rephrase. After investigating Rangers, HMRC issued a demand for unpaid tax as a result of the incorrect operation of an EBT scheme. Rangers have appealed this decision in a forlorn hope of delaying the inevitable.

Effectively, the battle is already lost - long ago.

CrimeWatch, more like.

Terrible crimes like those committed by Rangers FC are dreadful, but they're also very rare so please, don't have nightmares...

I am not defending what Rangers have done over the last 12 months. They deserve to be punished. I am just trying to point out that when all is said and done the clubs who are blameless are going to suffer...Unfairly in my opinion. I am just trying to point out there is another option which lets the other clubs keep their money and punish the club that has been proven to cheat.

I know this was hours ago, but I've been out and haven't caught up:

David Murray, Craig Whyte, Chick Young, Blue Knights,

Double Contracts, Billy Dodds did he do nothing wrong?

Haudit Daudit, Big Hoose Guy, Cockwomble, full of lies,

Big Tax Case, Little Tax Case, Jean Alain Boumsong,

RFFF, New Pitch, Daily Record, Rangers' Bitch,

HMRC, Liquidation, history goodbye

Porno Maker, Chuck Green, FTP, God Save The Queen

Fat Sally won't go, Joanna Lumley said no!

We didn't vote for newco

Club 12 sounds much better

Send your teams a letter

We didn't vote for newco

We'd have chased them faster

But for Donkeymaster

thumbup2.gif found myself singing this just to check it for phrasing! ........quality post mate

It's impossible to punish the club which has cheated unfortunately, because that club is no more.

It wouldn't be fair to punish the new replacement club which hasn't done anything wrong. They should instead be allowed to mind their own business and build from the bottom up by applying to enter Division 3 as any other new club would be entitled to do.

This will happen across the board in Scotland. St Mirren have said they will lose £500,000 pa without Rangers...Well they will certainly be slashing the wage bill and any decent offer for players like Kenny McLean will have to be considered.

I keep hearing Scottish football has hit rock bottom. TBH i think we are nowhere near rock bottom. Every SPL club losing £500,000 pa and celtic double that every year for the next 3 years. Is this the price we are willing to pay for sporting integrity? I am certainly prepared for it as it is a fit and proper punishment for what my club did..I feel for the other clubs as they will suffer as well but at least they have a choice. I cant understand why supporters of other clubs are not looking to keep The Rangers in the SPL with heavy sanctions...They get to mock us...They get the money we generate and they get to make sure we wont be competitive for X years.

The Chairman can say all they want about lost revenue,but if the fanbase polls are anything to go by then they could be losing a lot more from fans who walk away from their clubs in disgust at voting newco back into the SPL.

The revenue may well be down for 2-3 seasons if newco start from the 3rd....but it may well be down for a hell of a lot longer if these fans chose never to return.

It is all what ifs at the moment though,as we dont know yet what the final outcome is to be....either way i can assure you Scottish football will suffer for many years to come.
