Would Rangers have won the Champions League without Marseille cheating?

Odd question. Undoubtedly the Old Rangers were cheating at the time, this has been proven in Court so the answer is undoubtedly no.

They weren't cheating at that time, but the answer remains a resounding no, for the reasons already given in the thread.

The 'cheating' that Rangers were found guilty of (the use of EBTs) was from the period 2001 - 2010 so therefore were not cheating, certainly using that means in the 1990s.

Who knows whether they would have won the Champions League back then but its a period in time that I really wish the internet and social media was around for. Imagine the meltdowns on here when Rangers knocked out the mighty Leeds Utd....the P&B army of Falkirk/Hibs/Aberdeen sevco obsessors would have blown many a gasket. :lol:

Late 90s Rangers also ran an illegal tax scheme known as the 'Wee Tax Case' before EBTs. After the CL run though, as you say. The cracks had started to appear by the late 90s as Murray came up with scam after scam to get big name players in as the debt went through the roof.

That's incorrect, the 'Wee Tax Case' was in relation to their signings of Tore Andre  Flo and Ronald de Boer in the year 2000, around about £2.8M in liability. The wheels had come off the bogey for Murray and Rangers by that time as their reckless financial business during the 90s caught up with them and that coincided with Martin O'Neill's arrival at Celtic in summer 2000 which immediately began to turn the tide in Celtic's favour.

Their dodgy dealings began long before Whyte appeared on the scene, he was just seen as the fall guy for when the shit properly hit the fan.

Just seen this thread - a brilliantly stupid question.

 

My take? There isn't a replica European Cup in that room with the bike - No not one, and there never shall be one.

They don't do walking away, and that's why they keep a bike at Ibrox.

Genuine answer; they definitely had a chance. Think Milan would have been too strong for them in the final though.

Milan were dreadful in that game... they were lucky not to have lost 3-0 from what I saw of that game. Of course Marseille were practically rested.

Now if the question was, 'Would United have reached the European Cup final if Roma hadn't bribed the referee...'.

There was a lot of talk that Porto bribed a referee against Aberdeen in 1984 on the way to the Cup Winners Cup final which they lost and there were some dodgy decisions in the previous round against Rangers...

Inter Milan and Anderlecht were thought to be serial bribers too.

Depends how you spell Rangers. Or do you mean Sevco, as Rangers died in 2012 if I am not mistaken

Why thankyou, is it a major trophy to win? (You won't know what that is yet despite an illustrious eight year existence.)  😊
