Admins flash the bling instead of paying creditors

Can you believe these Duff and Phelps people?  They can’t afford to pay Rangers taxes, or other SPL clubs monies due, but today they tried to increase their payroll today by asking the SPL to register Daniel Cousin.  Can you imagine what the out-of-pocket creditors feel about this?

These people are in place to make sure the company trades long enough to repay creditors.  They can trade perfectly well with the three dozen or so players they have, what kind of justification could they possibly give to the court for playing Football Manager with other people’s money?  No wonder HM Revenue and Customs fought their appointment.

What an absolute shower. It’s almost as though that place is some kind of lightning rod for a special type of competency. It’s not your money you’re spending, pay the club’s bills and stop looking for football bling, that’s what got the last lot into trouble in the first place!

    Paul 67

    don’t you think there is a chance Rangers and Cousin had already signed the paperwork and they are now committed to £7.5k per week regardless? What other possible reason could there be for an admin company to try and register a player when they are fully aware the eyes of the country are on them? I am sure the financial authorities/courts will have something to say if they are adding to their wage bill? It is the only thing that makes sense?? Isn’t it?

  • the glorious balance sheet

    I thought administrators were supposed to cut costs and not add to them.

    It is not unheard of for clubs in administration to sign new players but this normally happens only after existing players – on higher wages – have been released, and normally when clubs are in administration for long periods of time. See Portsmouth`s first period in administration for example.

    It is strange that these administrators would attempt to sign Cousin on a reported £7,500 per week at all and in any case before slashing other costs.

    gerry_bhoy –

    Once each round’s questions are posted your next post is your only valid ‘entry’. get any question right and you get 1 point, or 2 if you’re the first with that particular right answer. But loadsapoints in the final round so everyone still has a chance!

    CRC – apologies if I’ve stolen your thunder there. Extra apologies If I’m completely wrong

    Administrators wouldn’t normally allow a loss making company to shell out collateral, even in terms of a so called ‘investment’.

    I thought yesterday’s performance by Whitehouse and Clark was pretty dodgy and this latest revelation reinforces my view.
    Do these guys know what they’re doing? Are they admin trainees or something?

    Agreed – they are not hired as Rangers fans. Their performance was poor and they did not look comfortable. The Whitehouse guy at least tried to answer the questions straight. Clark looked clueless.

    Cousin has a contract of employment, I work, you pay me £7500 per week (not clear if that’s before or after deductions). Swifty & Shifty tried to get him registered because otherwise he’s literally a huge waste of money!
