Duff and Phelps in the dock with Rangers as SPL hit back


The SPL today released a short statement indicating that despite asking for information regarding the improper registrations of football players to be submitted by 6 April, the league have yet to receive “full cooperation from the club and its administrators in providing everything that it and they have access to and which is required for the investigation to be completed”.

This being the case you may wonder why the league have been so keen to accommodate Duff and Phelps on the matter of allowing a Newco-Rangers access to the league.

Tonight the SPL will receive all the information they require to confirm Rangers have a case to answer.  They must act with the gravity the situation deserves.

Duff and Phelps failure to comply with the Harper MacLeod inquiry might superficially allow their job to progress as though there was nothing wrong, but it leaves an enormous and insurmountable issue for potential buyer to find when they conduct due diligence.

If Duff and Phelps had provided information on time, there was at least a chance they could have removed this iceberg that will surely scupper their chances of selling the club.

I am pleased Mr Doncaster has stepped forward this evening.  Now the truth is out he must deal with the matter expediently.

    From last blog..


    Bada Bing – sorry mate, missed that. I’m afraid it’s from today.


    This shows that Doncaster’s position is no longer tenable.


    I’m gobsmacked.


    They have rushed out with a statement which looks like it’s been formulated in an intellectual and veracity vacuum.

  2. Today’s blogs are headin’ for a record….just like the temp. way down here in the deep south today.

    whats new?


    P67 wrote about us being wrong and paranoid….


    the truth will out…

  11. SPL statement reads :



    “We pure asked them so we did but they wouldnae tell us. Gonnae no send us any bombs an that cos it wisnae us wot blew the lid aff it is wiz yon bad bbc types”

  12. I’m not going to get too excited about the documentary until I’ve seen its content. Too much hyping could end up in disappointment. I’m being constantly asked by English people, friends etc what I think about the huns’ situation, they are are always taken aback when I say I want them to disappear from the face of the planet.


    As regards tanks at Ayebrokes it is a regular occurrence, the place is full of “Sherman Tanks” every home game.



    Hail! Hail! May all our dreams come true tonight, please Santa.




  13. So after all these weeks the SPL are still waiting on doc’s from D&P.



    Funny this comes out tonight just before the BBC doc.mmmmmmmmm



    IMO the SPL are guilty of sitting back and hoping this went away.

    I think Doncaster’s next move is to audition for the role of Smithers in the new live action version of The Simpsons. ‘S’DM is an early favorite for the roll of Mr Burns.

  21. Future use for Ibrox:



    Ibrox Tesco, Ibrox Asda, Ibrox Hilton, Ibrox roundabout, Ibrox crossing, Ibrox Chapel, Ibrox Sanatorium, Ibrox Park ‘n’ Ride, Ibrox Retirement Home, Ibrox car boot sale, Ibrox Citizen Advice, Ibrox Job Centre, HM Prision Ibrox, HM Tax office Ibrox, Ibrox Samaritans.



    Plenty of scope for development!

    Matters not a jot..it’s the fact that it’s being aired on national jellyvision..and that the FACTS are being laid bare for ALL to see.


    No more will they be able to call anybody an internet bampot.


    They,the msm,will be seen as the bampots for swallyin’ all that orange jam.

    Aye,but it’s the biggest.

    It’s a glorious, Lisbonesque spring evening; anything on TV tonight that would justify letting the weeds and slugs get on with it?
