Green is wrong, players are all free agents


“If the players choose not to transfer they will then be in breach of contract” said Charles Green yesterday.  How desperate is this man?  Rangers players, every single one of them, work for Rangers Football Club PLC, a company which come Friday will no longer employ them.  They have a contract with Rangers Football Club PLC but the company is unable honour those contracts. Some players may choose to accept a job offer from Sevco, but Sevco has absolutely no right to intimidate or make legal claims on them. It can certainly not make threats based on breach of a contract another company is actually breaching.

The important question for you to consider is not whether Green is correct in his claim (he is not), it is why is he making such a statement?  Why mislead people and attempt to intimidate Rangers employees in this way?

Charlie doesn’t even have the keys yet and it looks like he is already miles off plan.  We like Charlie.  Lots.

    Your comment is presumptious and wrong!



    Eat the dirt!

    I’ve got a reasonable working knowledge of TUPE reg’s and agree……but……what about player registrations held at the SFA?



    My understanding is that they will revert to the SFA. True that?








    My congrats to you on this reward for your perseverance, well-deserved when many had given it up.



    A quick question-if you were in a meeting with Charlie,and he told you it was raining,would you look out the window just to check?



    He’s an inveterate liar from the sound of it.

    Just when I believed things couldn’t get better, I have acheived my first first.



    Unlike most boxers, I’m retiring at the top-no more podium chasing for me!




  7. SwanseaBhoy, correct. The registrations revert to the SFA, not any other company. The players are not contracted to the SFA, however, and the SFA cannot and will not pay them. The players, therefore, become free agents.

    According to Jabba today,,NewcoRangers walk away from all debts including the Big Tax Case,what are your thoughts on this????



    Hail hail

  9. BOBBY MURDOCH’S CURLED-UP, under those circumstances I would suggest that it was certainly not raining. Looking out the window to check would surely be a waste of time.



    GourockEmeraldBhoy , you’re welcome.



    ibleedgreenandwhite1, correct. Newco is a different company.

  10. Any court case, assuming Green is daft enough to go to court will be over in about 5 minutes.

    Morning all


    It’s been said so many times over the past couple of months and repeatedly by me.I’m gpoing to say it just one more time.I’m sure you all won’t mind. I just knew, I tell you I just knew right back to the Souness days that something was not right. Souness and then Watty and wee Dick were all given carte blanche with signings and massive wages, oh and something called EBT’S! The one thing that sticks in my craw is that DM constantly bummed about how much money he was throwing into the club.Well now we know. £000000.0000. It was all taxpayers money that was paying for the Gazza’s, Laudrups et al. Of course it wasn’t just murray that was cheating the taxman. Mr Ogalvie and many others were at it. They robbed us of titles and other teams of trophy’s. I feel so strongly that they should be stripped of these. Take everything that’s coming Murray et al. Who can forget those words “for every fiver………….” Cheating at the very highest level! I should feel so happy today after yesterdays news but I just feel so bloody angry at what they have done all those years. hopefully the joy will kick in soon.

    At this moment I think of Paul Mc Bride Q.C.


    and his contribution to our success in confronting the vested interests which have prevailed for so long in Bonnie Scotland.

    Paul67 – How desperate is this man?



    I almost couldn’t believe it. Apparently Green doesn’t realise they abolished slavery in this country some time ago.



    Or he thought that footballers don’t have access to agents and lawyers who know that TUPE doesn’t stand for “indentured service”.



    Or the blunt-speaking Yorkshireman is a fabulist like Prince Albert’s pal, Craig Whyte, and equally prone to saying whatever he imagines will advance his interests at any given moment, however implausible.



    Given that the Rangers players took massive pay cuts to help their club complete its fixtures and avoid immediate redundancies, I don’t think they’ll be terribly impressed with Mr Green’s belief that he can threaten them into to transferring their employment to a new company he owns.



    And surely it’s time for Green to put up or shut up? He’s been making a lot of silly noise for a man who doesn’t have any stake or standing in Scottish football. Has anybody actually seen this £2 he allegedly promised Craig Whyte? (thumbsup)

    been on holiday so maybe I’m not up to speed – are Green & Whyte in cahoots ? serious question not a play on words/colours.

    I was still trying to get to the Batcave when the “new article posted” alert went up. (thumbsup)





    I trust you have dismissed your butler after his tardy alarm call earlier.

  17. Steinreignedsupreme on

    Paul67 –



    Thanks for pointing that out – I’m sure it won’t be the last misleading statement you will have to correct in the coming weeks.



    In the best tradition of the club formally known as Rangers, I sense a late challenge on Charlie – in a bid to get hold of the Asbestos Dome.

    So Green can purchase NewcoRangers( Ibrox,Murray Park ETC ) for 5.5M,,probably get enough votes to go straight back into the SPL witha clean slate,ready to start afresh???



    And this is viewed as a good thing????



    Hail hail

  20. Arrived in (divided) glasgow office with bag of lemons from fruit shop. On desks of bhoys with the following instructions:



    1 cut in half


    2 apply to lips at regular intervals


    3 Stop smiling so loudly !!



    Lemonsookers CSC



    PS excellent leadership again Paul – now lets be patient and see how this all pans out – hard but the best option.



    Remember the quote “Never interrupt your enemy when he is making a mistake”. Board playing a blinder so far – I’m sure they have plans A,B,C etc ready for all contingencies.

  21. good morning all,



    I woke up in a very good humour this morning!!!!!



    Could have been something to do with watching bbc scotland last night and hearing the man who is a rep of supporters of an old company who used to have a football club playing in scotland!!!!


    Can’t quite remember the name, something to do with a new york ice hockey team (i think)!!!!!!!



    Anyway he was spouting on about a newco (NEW COMPANY) but kept using the word continue!!!!


    How can something NEW continue anything?? It is new and therefore NOT the OLD company or club or whatever that it wishes to replace!!!!



    As said by one of you fine CQNers, Stupid Stuipid Huns

  22. RoboTim is Neil Lennon's able assistant \o/ on

    Hi Paul, just wanted to say thanks for your amazing work on cqn. This, for me goes back to being a teenager and reading an article in the herald in the late 90s fawning over David Murray’s rangers and how they will have a team for spl and a team for Europe etc. Sickening stuff and i just knew something was wrong. Your articles on rangers financial matters had me hooked from the start (was it 2004?) and provided me with a viewpoint NO mainstream paper was prepared to give. Now we have the endgame and you, phil, rtc and the others are shining bright.


    Hail Hail!

  23. Bobby Murdoch’s Curled- up Winklepickers @ 9.16



    Thank you Sir! My first ever repost lol. You have made the joy in me start to flow!





    Great job Paul. I am just about to phone the old man and have a celebratery drink over the phone with him. Rangers are dead.


    Can you or any on CQN explain why Green would be able to acquire the assets ie Ibrox and Moses Park for 5.5m. I was under the impression from their auditors that these assets were worth 110m only a season ago.


    I’m thinking of putting an offer in. “Scottish Australian billionaire comes to the rescue of Ibrox United.”

  25. ‘Call Kay’. Some current bun tells us that there is ‘a bit if Rangers in us all’. ……..heaven forbid. Straight to a surgeon to get it cut out!
