Dunfermline statement on Rangers


This evening’s announcement by Dunfermline Athletic that they no longer expect to receive timely receipt of the £80,000 ticket money Rangers FC PLC (in administration) owe them will heighten concerns at Inverness Caledonian Thistle, who have a stock at tickets with Rangers right now, money for which will be received by the administrators in advance of their game later this month.

The administrators have yet to decide whether to retain high-earning players or make more funds available for existing creditors, and future creditors, like Inverness.  As ticket sales for the Inverness game are on-going, the administrators will need to be aware of their legal position before retaining a premium squad.

  1. Can someone phone SSB and ask them to comment on huns stealing from the tax payer!



    What should the punishment be?

  2. macjay1 for Neil Lennon on



    Meanwhile, it has emerged that David Grier, a partner at Rangers administrators Duff and Phelps, was centrally involved in Craig Whyte’s takeover from previous owner Sir David Murray.


    As emails obtained by BBC Scotland show, he even assured the previous board that Mr Whyte’s bid had already secured a “time to pay” deal with HMRC.


    The BBC has seen emails relating to the takeover of the club This has led one academic to raise concerns over the appointment of Duff and Phelps as Rangers’ administrators.



    Curiouser and curiouser.

  3. does anyone have a link for sportsound



    can’t seem to get it these days since bbc updated their website

  4. Burnley78






    on reflection,,, it’s a fact that is incestuously unsurprising

  5. macjay1 for Neil Lennon says:



    I think there is a story there. And John McFall is like a dog with a bone. Ask the banks;)




  6. A question re the administrators.



    HMRC agreed to the appointment of these administrators. IF they did so without knowing that Grier had previous, as it were, being part of the Whyte takeover team, do they now have grounds to object? is there a legal mechanism whereby they can have these administrators removed and their own choice appointed having already accepted?

  7. Brendan behan



    To be fair she has weilded a huge axe over the past 6 or 7 years at Dunfermline (once the bank gravey train ran dry)……slash slash slash costs in a way which rangers might have to do themselves if they are properly ‘administered in the next month.



    She has got that club on an even keel and provides a platform for clowns like yorkston to spout forth.



    Masterton is the main influencer behind it all though not yorkston as i understand it.

  8. Dead and Loving it on

    find it incredible that david grier has anything to do with rangers administration



    its like getting caught stealing sweeties from the shop one week



    next week they give him the keys of the sweetie shop

  9. Nakagod,


    No problem with what you said – you’ll probably gather that I’m not a great fan of Salmond, tho’ I’ve been a Scot Nat for longer than he has (maybe I should say BECAUSE..). I was also commenting on other posters – maybe I should have identified them.

    Rangers have invited Freddie Ljungberg to murray park for trial



    Ljungberg has been freed recently and is a free agent








    Ljungberg, 34, made the move to the Far East in September but admitted that S-Pulse was “not the right project” for him.



    “I loved my time in Japan, and I am grateful to have had the chance to live in Japan and embrace the Japanese culture,” Ljungberg said.



    “However, after a long thought-out process and discussions with my family, I felt… this was not the right project for me.



    “Different ambitions combined with not having the opportunity to participate in the Champions League 2012 edition were my main reasons to explore other options.”



    Ljungberg, who has also had spells with West Ham, Celtic, Seattle Sounders and Chicago Fire since leaving Arsenal in 2007, parts ways with S-Pulse after just eight league appearances.


    “There were some differences in vision causing the mutual termination between S-Pulse and Fredrik Ljungberg,” the club said in a statement.



    “S-Pulse would like to compete in the 2012 season with players and staff who share common vision and goals.”

  11. Re Dunfermline statement..they also have one of the highly rated rangers youngsters on loan Kyle Hutton…might a deal be done shortly re this boy and the amount outstanding.?

  12. Am I hearing that right, Salmond wants HMRC to offer rangers a repayment plan over a reasonable period of time?



    The EBT bill is their tax built up over a 10-15 year period, wasn’t that a reasonable period of time?

  13. Paul67 et al.



    I’ve been listening to Clyde1 for the last two scoreboards.Isn’t there an alternative opinion on that programme,the 2 nights that I listened they were in full agreement with each other.


    I shan’t be tuning in again.



    They said that they (the chat side host and reporters) had no output whether Rangers stays in the SPL,but if they keep repeating that Scottish football will be worse off if there’s no Rangers.If they keep repeating it often enough, it will stick.

  14. Not at all surprised by Salmond. He is a man of no principles, and his brass neck rivals that of Traynor.



    To say what he said is a complete and utter disgrace – an organisation which has fleeced the tax man for goodness knows ho much should be given special dispensation. Shocking, profoundly shocking.



    On the other hand, he has no power here and he knows it. If this is the last thing he says on the issue then we can conclude that he was just spouting that nonsense to deflect any forthcoming Hun anger. if, on the other hand, he tries to interfere with HMRC then I hope he and his miserable party of little Scotlanders are roundly crushed at the referendum.



    As for Dunfermline – isn’t Murray (and Salmond’s) best mate Masterton a director there?



    No surprise. What a stitch up…

  15. Aye .just as we all knew would happen , the rally call has went out . Salmond , curran . robinson , regan , the sfa, yorkston , the administrators, the laptop loyal , clyde et al , RANGERS MUST BE SAVED . I hope to god HMRC dont ease up on this . For all our joy i feel HMRC will have a fight on their hands here. where,s panorama and the fraud squad when you need them .



    hail hail

    Notice that Daly referred to him as John McFall and NOT Lord McFall while making sure he referred to Sir David Murray.



    They always give themselves away, don’t they!

  18. Rangers should be docked another 10 pts for not paying SPL clubs ticket money due.


    Breach of contract !



    Is this true bhoys.

  19. So why no redundancies in the playing staff today? Is the administrator really acting in the best interests of the creditors here?



    I hope that HMRC are not cowed. I am fuming at how “civic” Scotland is rallying around the nation’s most anti-Catholic, anti-Irish, violently reactionary institution.



    Ashamed of Scotland tonight.

  20. I sat increasingly bemused by Salmond’s contribution. If he is trying to give the impression of pressurising HMRC in favour of a company which has cheated the Exchequer out of millions, he couldn’t have done a better job. His only saving grace (for e) was in knowing that is is all cadswallop, since he hasn’t the authority. But, if it is an indication of how they would be treated in an independent Scotland by the SNP, it frightens the bejazus out of me.



    Let’s hope they go to the wall now.

    Sorry, repost from earlier as site went down on my computer, could be doing weith this info bhoys



    Hi Ghuys



    Been a while since i posted, been constant lurking of course!!



    I was wondering if anyone out there could point me in the direction of a list of players bought and money paid by rangers fc plc (in administration) in there so called no dough 3 in a row triumph. I am looking to quash these rumours once and for all with a few friends from the darkside.



    Thanks in advance






    Patrick, since 2008/09 season, they spent £23m on Edu, Mendes, Beattie Naismith, Miller, Webster, Laugherty, Davis. Velicka and Jelavic. They had Spit, Bartley, Weiss, Niguez, Rothen on loan and had a few free tranfers in as well such as Healy and Kerkar Boadfoot and Alexander

  23. Evening,



    Ive thoroughly enjoyed reading the blog the last few days, even more than i usually do. I dont pretend to have a big brain and to know the ins and outs of admin and legal matters but i sincerely hope that the 10 point deduction is mereley the thin edge of the very large wedge that comes crashing down on them.


    I and all of you have watched for years as we (and others) have been cheated out of titles and trophies, done in all manner of devious and dubious means.


    I just want to say 1 thing which has probably been echoed previously by many better people than me on here. I wish to God Tommy Burns was alive. I wish that he, along with Neil Lennon and Fergus McCann could take a bow on our final home game of the season and all three of them could get cheered to the rafters with our trophy in their hands. They all deserve it.

  24. Joe Filippis Haircut on

    Bhoys the Scottish establishment were allways going to make noises if the Rangers were in trouble but dont confuse noise with action.When it comes to putting there hand in there pocket to help the club you will hear a totaly different noise coming from the establishment it will be the sound of silence.H.H..

    Daly is more likely to be on first name terms (and have more in common) with McFall than with Murray.

  27. Sorry to repeat myself, but….



    A question re the administrators.



    HMRC agreed to the appointment of these administrators. IF they did so without knowing that Grier had previous, as it were, being part of the Whyte takeover team, do they now have grounds to object? is there a legal mechanism whereby they can have these administrators removed and their own choice appointed having already accepted?



    And would it make a difference anyway?
