McIntyre evidence, Res 12, 5-way agreement

235

For a football club to be licenced to play in Uefa competition it has to be up to date with social taxes.  The SFA oblige clubs to make them aware of any overdue taxes, but if this information is withheld, or falsified, the Association have no powers to act.

In evidence at the trial of Craig Whyte at the High Court in Glasgow on 25 April 2017, former Rangers director, Donald McIntyre, was cross-examined by another former Rangers director, Donald Findlay.

McIntyre was shown a document dated 2010 from HMRC to Rangers saying tax for PAYE and National Insurance was due on Rangers Discount Options Scheme (DOS), involving players Tore Andre Flo, Craig Moor and Ronald de-Boer was “payable in full”.

His evidence under oath was clear, Rangers accepted liability for unpaid PAYE and National Insurance claims in connection with the Wee Tax Case (DOS) in 2010, telling the court, they had “no choice but to accept liability” at that stage.

Despite this, the club submitted their licence application without informing the SFA of their overdue social taxes.  This enabled them to take Scotland’s Champions League qualification spot and for the chance to earn £20m.  If they were ineligible, Celtic would have taken the qualification place.  This is the issue raised as Resolution 12 at the Celtic AGM in 2013 by campaigners who sought to shed light on the incongruous eligibility of Rangers for European competition in 2011.  The SFA stonwalled the campaigners until McIntyre’s evidence was heard in open court.

Rangers DOS scheme for three players (Flo, Moore and Ronald De-Boer) was not subject to the SPL’s Lord Nimmo Smith Commission inquiry and has not, thus far, been investigated.

A condition of their SFA membership application, then Sevco (now Rangers) agreed to be liable for some of Oldco Rangers football liabilities and penalties.

Yesterday, the SFA issued a Notice of Complaint against Newco, which the club states relates to “the monitoring period subsequent to the grant of the UEFA licence.”  Adding, “This new Notice of Complaint neglects to properly capture the provisions of prior agreements made between the Club and the SFA.”

The “prior agreements made between the Club and the SFA” likely refer to the Five Way Agreement, between Rangers, Sevco, the SFA, the SPL and the SFL.  This agreement attempted to isolate the new entity from certain activities of Oldco Rangers last majority owner, Craig Whyte – known as the “CW Exempt Acts”.

The Five Way Agreement, however, does not protect Newco from what is referred to as “CW Enduring Acts”.  Specifically, “The SFA, Sevco and RFC hereby agree that on Completion Sevco shall, other than with respect to the CW Exempt Acts, become liable and responsible for the purpose of imposition of sanctions by the SFA for any and all acts and/or omissions of RFC and/or Rangers FC.”  The Five Way Agreement was not a blank cheque.

A CW Enduring Act, among other things, includes “corruption, fraud….. or any matter similar in its reprehensible nature…… which acts or omissions are of at least equal gravity to those found to have been committed by or engaged in by RFC”.

Newco’s initial defence against the Notice is likely to be that this crack at a £20m Champions League slot is not of sufficient gravity to be determined as a CW Enduring Act.  By bringing the charge, the SFA compliance officer clearly believes differently.

A few notes:

We only have Newco’s statement yesterday to indicate what the Notice applies to – they suggest the monitoring period, and then, only after 6 May 2011, the period in which Craig Whyte had majority ownership (although Dave King was still a director).  The statement was not entirely coherent (a different Notice of Complaint was issued 8 months ago but has been dismissed?).  It is also possible the statement was written in haste, and confused a written agreement with the SPL, not the SFA.  I would not put too much emphasis on this statement.

There may well be a Sandy Bryson, waiting in the wings to offer an innovative interpretation of the rules that absolves Rangers from all sins.  On the positive side, there is no Campbell Ogilvie to protect in this case, and the SFA have been happy for Craig Whyte-related issues to stick.

It is clear that the only issues Newco can be charged with during the period from 6 May 2011 until liquidation, are CW Enduring Acts – and they are “reprehensible [in]nature”.  If the charge stands there cannot be a token punishment.  I expect a multi-year European ban.

It is hard not to be cynical after Bryson, but this issue has persisted for so many years and has not gone away.

  1. HH CQN, long time no speak.

     

     

    Ages ago I went through the hun European EBT games and sent letters and emails to all the teams that old Rangers either won or drew against.

     

     

    The administrators of one club who subsequently ended up in financial difficulties contacted me and said they were looking at the matter. Oh the irony!

     

     

    Below is a list of the relevant details for all other clubs involved and emails if anyone wants to contact them to highlight the huns cheating .

  2. Yet again a statement from Sevco in Rangers guise pretending not to know the continued history, specifically the incorporation of club and company in 1899.

     

     

    So, if yer old company is in liquidation, as they admit, then so’s yer club.

     

     

    And you are, therefore, new, as in not the same, major-trophyless, a stripling of 6 summers.

     

     

    And count yourself lucky, or you’d be liable for over £150 (yeah, that’s right, lady, one hundred and fifty!) million to creditors, face painters and all.

     

     

    Not so fast, Lynch, I’m last on the previous!

    ” former Rangers director, Donald McIntyre, was cross-examined by another former Rangers director, Donald Findlay.”

  6. If Celtic have lost out financially due to the actions of the old club, should Celtic not be submitting a claim to the liquidator, or is that now time barred?

  7. Penultimate on last article, for me, KEVJ in after me with a nice post for Lionroars67.

    Maybe this applies, from another case.

     

     

    “The former directors were guilty of fraud.

     

     

    The claims were within the applicable limitation period.

     

     

    Even if the claimants had been time barred under the limitation period, the court would have disapplied the limitation period in this instance. To time bar the claimants would have inflicted clear hardship, as they were victims of fraud on a significant scale, the claims were substantial and the claims were not obvious.”

  11. Hebcelt, can you please tell me what the bad news was, I can’t find it. Thanks in advance.

    On 26 7 2012 – a sokesman for the SFL / the SFA and the SPL said this –

     

     

    ” We are pleased to confirm that agreement on all outstanding points relating to the transfer of the Scottish FA Membership between Rangers FC (in Administration ) and Sevco Scotland Ltd ,who will be the new owners of The Rangers Football Club . A Conditional membership will be issued to Sevco Scotland Ltd,who will be the new owners of the Rangers Football Club .” .

     

     

    They have certainly endured .

  16. LR67 good luck on your recovery, I hope you have the same level of service and dedication from the NHS staff that I had earlier in the year. The NHS staff were wonderful and are sometimes under valued.

     

    Robinbhoy great post about Hugh Keevins on the late Tommy Twists Tommy turns Tommy Burns, I know it was in the Daily Record, but nonetheless, a great piece by Keevins.

     

     

    Regarding Sevco, well what can you say that hasn’t already been said, they are, as the Rankers were before them a cheating, lying, bigoted bunch of horrible, ugly cavemen like F#ck wits.

     

     

    Right back to the coal face now

     

    Have a good day all

    It’s probably a sin to wallow in the misfortune of others, but I am salivating at the term ‘multi-year European ban’.

  18. eddieinkirkmichael on

    “Multi yr Euro ban” never going to happen. We all know that no journalist in Scotland is going to run with this story and without the press running the story there will be a whitewash. We all know this, they ALL know the story but not one of them is prepared to expose the curruption.

     

    Where are the disciplinary proceeding against those who worked at SFA during the period in question. Why hasn’t Andrew Dickson been suspended?

     

    You all know what’s coming so bend over boys you are about to be shafted. Again.

  19. The Battered Bunnet on

    To Auldheid, BRTH, Morrissey and the Can man, bunnet doffed for tenacity, resilience and smarts.

     

     

    Well done bhoys, you owed beer from every bugger who ever gave a damn about this game of ours.

    The bad news was the ongoing child abuse case at Rangers…

     

     

    The victim is seeking compensation and was told by the current owners that he should contact the liquidators as it happed at their “old” club..

  21. Well done, the res12 bhoys.

     

    I’m happy with BRTH’s take on it. The results of the investigation into the CO’s Complaints will throw up many faults in the SFA’s governance. They will be open to public ridicule if they don’t make serious changes.

    Maybe the UEFA Licence people won’t pay any attention to what does or doesn’t get reported in the likes of The Daily Record or Radio Clyde.

  23. Hunderbirds are Gone on

    Apologies for the repost. I was posting to myself back on the previous thread and not for the first time, D’oh.

     

     

    Watching Blakey May perform during Prime Minister’s Question’s, and the image that pops into my head is one of a tethered goat. The stalking wolves that flank her are Hammond, Bojo and Javid, smirking and nodding their heads, but ready to twist the knife in her back when her party jettison her before the next election, and don’t forget Rudd, skulking on the back benches.

     

    🍀⚽️

  24. I’ve said before and sorry but will repeat, they hunbigots will get away with everything, fact. Why will they, well it’s obvious. The entire establishment in Scotland will see to it. Ignore this, deny that etc etc .

     

    Anyway, here is a brilliant wee blues choon for yeez

  25. Sevco will ride into the sunset without a scrath. But as with everything else the stain of cheating will linger a long time indeed, i want them to be punished but no amount of punishment will ever change their sense of entitlement.

     

     

    F*** them and sfa who are kidding themselves on, they were up to the knees in it too
