Ogilvie and Regan must now resign


What you and I have known for months was established as true by the BBC last night, Rangers improperly registered players for over a decade.  Following the programme there was some bluster by a firm of accountants who clearly have a lot to worry about, but nothing has been said to dispute the dual contract claim.

The SLP have not added to their 65 word statement released ahead of the broadcast.  SFA chief executive Stewart Regan has told the BBC the association will not act, unless called to do so as an appeal body, and SFA President What-school-did-you-go-to has not uttered a word.

Campbell Ogilvie was an executive director of Rangers when it carried out a dual contract system in contravention of the rules of the SFA.  This is an established fact which is likely to have severe repercussion for the Scottish game and the club.  It is inconceivable that he continues to act as president of the SFA, especially when it has taken the decision not to become involved, despite being the only body competent to investigate breaches across all domestic competitions.

He must resign immediately or be fired.  If Mr Regan does not understand this he should be fired too.  He is there to take the hard decisions, not to make friends.  He has abandoned fans at the time they most need clear leadership.

Anyone on the board in any doubt about this matter must follow them out the door.  The SFA is professional body with budget of millions of pounds, not an old boys club, and should act accordingly.

    The SFA’s jest the same.

    CAMPBELL Ogilvie has vowed to continue in his role as Scottish Football Association president as he insisted he had no role in “drafting or administering” player contracts at Rangers after the mid-1990s.



    Ogilvie has come under pressure after the SFA and then the SPL vowed to investigate the alleged non-disclosure of payments to Rangers players during his spell at Ibrox.



    The former Rangers company secretary Ogilvie confirmed he was a member of the Employee Benefit Trust scheme operated by Rangers and which is the subject of a First Tier Tax tribunal which could land the Ibrox club an HMRC bill of £49 million.



    However, Ogilvie – who was employed at Ibrox from 1978 until leaving for Hearts in 2005 – stressed he had no role in negotiating player contracts and insisted he is determined to carry on in his role, to which he was elected in June last year following a spell as vice-president. “I look forward to new and exciting challenges ahead at the Scottish FA,” said Ogilvie

    Well said Pail67.



    The SFA receive public money from government funding – yet more abuse of tax payers money by Ogilvie.



    Thank goodness we have confident politicians who will bravely confront this glaring corruption. Oh wait,….

  5. Fortunes Favour Mibbes on

    Actually, why is CO so keen to hold on to the job rather than resign with some glorious glasgow dignity???



    It must be important to some of his fellow protagonists that he remain in position.

  6. Paul,



    That there has been no statement or action from either individuals or groups is breathtaking in its clumsiness or worrying in its brazenness.



    Give them all their due – they’ve had a right good innings and they’ve dragged things out beyond all realms of good sense.



    But, surely enough is now enough?



    Is there none of them aware of what should now be considered, the respectable thing to do?




  7. Sometimes in life events overtake a man & force him to take action- whether that action is favourable or calamitious is normally determibed by the level of neglect a man has shown in towards those events…fate then makes the decision for him:



    Is that what is happening to Raygun & his bloated clan?






    Len: sorry for misspell.



    Is that right- the irony of misspelling the word misspel.

    This was billed as the biggest day of Regans professional life.



    I don’t think we really expected him to fail, or deflect, as he seems to have…

    The self-perceived ‘mighty’ like to cling to power until their fingers are broken and they can’t hang on any more.
