Statement leaves Newco exposed

446

Newco’s statement on their management team is worthy of some consideration:

“At a meeting with the management team’s representative earlier this week the Club were advised that Mr Warburton, Mr Weir and Mr McParland wished to resign their positions and leave the Club on condition that Rangers agreed to waive its rights to substantial compensation.”

A meeting with a representative of the management team, not with the manager, and not a resignation letter.

The club went on: “The Board urgently convened to consider the offer made on behalf of the management team and its ramifications and agreed to accept it and release the trio from the burden of compensation”.

If you agree to the terms of an offer made on behalf of someone, you really, really, need to get the signature of the individuals concerned. If you fail to get an agreement signed, you don’t have an agreement. If you don’t even appear to have a verbal agreement with your members of staff, you get on with your work as though nothing has happened.

They’d better hope Warburton, Weir and McParland get another job quickly, otherwise I predict another raft of court cases to be paid for.  This is a statement which suggests the authors have left themselves exposed.

  1. So just afore I depart.

     

    It’s looking like the breadman asked the huns for permission to speak to Forrest or another club and said he would waive any compo or wages due if he got the job, they agreed………………….then he didn’yt get the job so they have effed him oot….how feckin sweet is that :-)

     

    Could be a ways away, but it’s looking like it imo, the hun board are the biz, cool and dignified and on the save the money ball, winkers of the highest standard.

    On the contrary, if said parties offered their resignations before receiving a written offer of another job in Englandshire, perhaps they are more at risk, in Scots law your word is your bond, subject to witness of course :-)

  4. Tim Malone Will Tell on

    Glibby is probably relying on some member of the Sevco faithful to do their duty send Warbo a few bullets in the post. Otherwise, why post that statement?

  5. Do they have the dough to bap him oot….we knead to know …or have they risen above themselves….

     

     

    Morton to roll them over?

    Could there have been some sort of disagreement over whether or not to accept the £6m bid for Barrie McKay?

  7. King has thrown Warbs under the bus. Make him out to be the bad guy and blame his signings. The trio will get their cash eventually. My theory is this move is designed to keep the lights on until season ticket money comes in.

  8. Tuesday 14th is their Admin Anniversary – the 5th it’s also known as the Wooden Anniversary.

    Warbs has been played, a verbal offer of a job, a verbal resignation, suddenly no job offer appears but he has already resigned, legal and binding, stuff your compo

  10. I’ve been kind of hoping that things wouldn’t go too tits up for them so that Warby would still be there during the 7-in-a-row season. I guess now that he’s toast I can revert to enjoying them getting royally humped again.

     

     

    Hail hail.

    RANGERS have sensationally parted company with Mark Warburton, Davie Weir and Frank McParland amid a bitter split.

     

    The club dramatically released a statement on social media at approximately 8.30pm stating the resignations of the manager, number two and head of recruitment had been accepted.

    Yet, SunSport can reveal an absolutely stunned Warburton knew NOTHING of his sudden exit from the club after 20-months in charge and 82 games — abruptly informed of his fate by an EMAIL while at home.

     

     

    Development coach and former Scotland star Graeme Murty and academy chief Craig Mulholland have been placed in charge for Sunday’ Scottish Cup fifth round tie against Morton at Ibrox.

     

     

    The Gers statement read: “Rangers has accepted the resignations of manager Mark Warburton, assistant manager David Weir and the Club’s head of recruitment Frank McParland.

     

     

    “At a meeting with the management team’s representative earlier this week the club were advised that Mr Warburton, Mr Weir and Mr McParland wished to resign their positions and leave the club on condition that Rangers agreed to waive its rights to substantial compensation.

     

     

    “Rangers’ agreement to waive compensation would assist the management team to join another club. This compensation amount was agreed when Rangers significantly improved Mr Warburton and Mr Weir’s financial arrangements before the start of this season.

     

     

    “The board urgently convened to consider the offer made on behalf of the management team and its ramifications and agreed to accept it and release the trio from the burden of compensation, despite the potential financial cost to the club.

     

    “It is important that Rangers has a football management team that wants to be at the club and that the board believes can take the club forward to meet our stated ambition to return to being the number one club in Scotland.

     

     

    “We are clearly short of where we expected to be at this time.”

     

     

    But a bewildered Warburton told SunSport: “What’s going on? This is scandalous, I’ve no idea what they’re talking about.

     

     

    “I haven’t resigned. I’ve never resigned — I’ve no idea what they’re talking about.

     

     

    “I was advised by an email to read an urgent letter. But, I tell you, I haven’t resigned.”

     

     

    Over the last 48-hours Warburton has been strongly linked with Nottingham Forest and one bookmakers even made him second favourite for the manager’s job.

     

     

    He mocked the link at a press conference at the Rangers Training Centre yesterday.

     

     

    But it’s understood the Gers board became convinced there WAS substance to the link with Forest, believing that being the reason behind the alleged approach by the trio to quit in return for waiving compensation for their services.

     

     

    Forest have confirmed caretakers Gary Brazil and Jack Lester will stay in place until the end of the season.

     

     

    SunSport also believes the board has no intention of paying any compensation for their departures.

     

     

    Their statement added: “The representative acting for the management team subsequently attempted to alter the terms of what had been agreed in favour of the management team.

     

     

    “A further board meeting was held this afternoon to discuss this and it was decided not to agree to this additional request but to hold with the original agreement.

     

     

    “Mr Warburton, Mr Weir, and Mr McParland have therefore been notified in writing that their notices of termination have been accepted.

     

     

    “The board is very appreciative of the good work previously done by the management team but believes it had no alternative.”

     

     

    Warburton, 54, was appointed in on June 15, 2015, becoming the club’s first English manager.

     

     

    SunSport understands managing director Stewart Robertson and finance director Andrew Dickson will address a shocked squad today.

  17. VFR800 IS NOW A MONSTER 821 on 10TH FEBRUARY 2017 10:57 PM

     

     

    If that sequence of events is accurate it looks more like sackings than resignations.

     

     

    I wonder whether they took legal advice before releasing the statement.

  18. Looks like Warbs had tried to engineer a move to Forrest is the rumour but it has backfired giving the sevco board a reason to sack him without any compo

     

     

    Nae luck Sherwood csc

    @shinjukushug: Rangers’ biggest problem is not resignationgate. It’s the fact Brendan Rodgers works for Celtic!
