Rangers in administration without tax case

1363

There are not words powerful enough to describe today’s news.  The English language is insufficient and I have no Greek or Latin.  Rangers Football Club have today asked the Court of Session to appoint an administrator, unable to service their creditors.  The freight train of their tax tribunal has yet to hit, these events relate exclusively to how the club has operated in other areas.

Scottish Premier League rules state that clubs are deducted 10 points on going into administration, which will give Celtic a 14 point lead at the top of the table once in effect.

This is a day we have predicted will come for over three years.  It has been inevitable for that long.  Now the really interesting events will happen.

We don’t need no stinkin’ Rangers.

Up the Celts!

    FFS Rangers, I was in the middle of work and going great guns when I saw 120 new twitter messages, had to have a nosy to see what it was and haven’t stopped smiling since. Productivity going way down for rest of the day.

    Enough of this nonsense

     

     

    Back to matters in hand.

     

     

    Has Bogging spoke with the administrator yet about a new contract ?

  7. Had to log on.

     

     

    Too good to miss.

     

     

    Working with a couple of them here and as the Fu99ie Text me to tell me teh good news which had broken on here and on RTC, I took great delight on breaking it to them.

     

    On ending the meeting I was like Columbo……ahem

     

    “one last thing gents!”

     

    “Rankers have just announced that they have petitioned for Administration”

     

     

    All said with the biggest smile.

     

     

    Oh it’s alright, I’m their boss. I’ll buy them some Jelly and Ice cream to cheer them up :-)

     

    Mucker

     

    Party time CSC

  8. It is funny watching the journos still trying to appease.

     

     

    “Rangers have lodged an intention. They are not in administration yet.”

     

     

    It is like saying

     

     

    “He has been decapitated but there is still blood pumping out of the neck stump so he is not dead yet!”

  9. SPL Rule A 6.8: “Where a Club takes, suffers or is subject to an Insolvency Event that Club shall be deducted 10 points. Where the Insolvency Event occurs during the Season, the points deduction shall apply immediately.”

     

     

    14 points clear!

  10. Let history remember that Lenny’s Lions were 4 points ahead of R*ngers while they still had their millionaire team bought with tax-payers money, before they were ducked 10 points, before they had to sell Jelavic, Davis, MacGregor, and Naismith, before they were forced to hand back the trophies they bought for decades…

     

     

    …and before Eh Bers resurface as Dynamo Govan.

    SSN is the new Zapruder film redux!

     

     

    Jim Whyte riffs a crazy 21st century Walter Cronkite – The Bad Blues News Blues in C minor…

     

     

    Let the voices be low. LOW. LOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOWWWWWW.

     

     

    Hush Hush.

    HAPPY ADMINISTRATION DAY

     

     

    For those of you interested awaiting some form of letter template CRC volunteered that I put up for you see below for an extract of the main point I made to Mr Neil Doncaster. I have removed some of the more personalised detailed from the letter pertaining to our previous communications and I also do not intend to publish any of the replies Mr Doncaster has sent me as that would defeat the purpose of you ghuys and ghals picking up your pen/paper/laptops and posting off you own letters.

     

     

    When I started typing this post up I received a txt from vmhan to tell me it was JELLY & ICE CREAM TIME and then I saw Jim White’s face on CQN. Happy days (well not for Jim White obviously). Anyway. My template is all based on a non-specific SPL club. You all may wish to change it to a SPECIFIC SPL CLUB now. Canny think who though. :=)))))))

     

     

     

     

    Mr Neil Doncaster

     

    Chief Executive

     

    Scottish Premier League

     

    Hampden Park

     

    Glasgow

     

    G42 9DE.

     

     

    Having read the Rules and Regulations of the SPL, the Articles of Association of the SPL as well as the clarification letters published on the SPL website a number of times, prior to both my original letter to you and your subsequent reply. I am interested, however, to know exactly how these Rules and Regulations and Articles of Associations as well as any clarifications (in the form of letters to member clubs) of the aforementioned will be applied with reference to the questions asked in my original letter of the 13th of January 2012 and expanded upon below.

     

     

    As Chief Executive of the SPL please clarify the procedures, process’s, Rules & Regulations of the SPL and The Articles of Association of the SPL (inclusive of clarification sent letters to member clubs) that would be applied by the SPL if a member club holding one share finds itself liquidated, therefore no longer holding entitlement to its share in the SPL?

     

     

    In particular I am interested as to whether a brand new club/legal entity being formed, with a similar name, team colours, badge, playing in the same stadium and being supported by the same supporters as the liquidated member would/would not be afforded direct entry into the SPL in place of the liquidated member?

     

     

    With regards the Rules and Regulations of the SPL and the Articles of Association of the SPL including all publically published clarification letters please advise as to whether the aforementioned new club would/would not be afforded direct entry to the SPL and provide me with the following:

     

     

     

    a) Details of the specific rule(s) from the Rules and Regulations of the SPL and/or the particular article/s from The Articles of Association of the SPL that would support any decision to allow/disqualify a new company as previously described direct entry into the SPL?

     

     

     

    b) based on a) above would this decision be a Reserved matter for The Board of the SPL and if so please provide details of the specific rule(s) from the Rules and Regulations of the SPL and/or the particular article(s) from The Articles of Association or subsequent clarification letters of the Rules and Regulations and/or the Articles of Association of the SPL that would support this decision?

     

     

     

    c) based on a) above if the decision is not a Reserved matter for The Board of the SPL is this a matter for the non-liquidated Members of the SPL in General Meeting passing an Ordinary Resolution, a Qualified Resolution or a Special Qualified Resolution? Please provide details of the specific rule(s) from the Rules and Regulations of the SPL and/or the particular article(s) from The Articles of Association of the SPL or subsequent clarification letters of the Rules and regulations and/or the Articles of Association of the SPL that would support this decision?

     

     

     

    With regards the questions detailed above I listened with keen interest to Radio Clyde Super Scoreboard Programme aired 30th of January 2012 when at 19:37 Mr Hugh Keevins stated ”I personally. I personally wrote the story about what would befall Rangers in the event of this happening because I went and I was briefed on the subject by the SPL.”. Given this public statement by Hugh Keevins can you please confirm if such briefings have taken place between journalists/sports journalists and the SPL with regards the (hypothetical) situation of Rangers FC being liquidated.

     

     

    Further to the above you state in your reply “the existing rules would cover any situation involving an attempt to transfer any of the shares in the SPL”. Is there a possibility that the Rules & Regulations of the SPL and/or The Articles of Association of the SPL could amended/rewritten in order to accommodate a transfer of a share in the SPL between an existing club/company experiencing a liquidation event which sees that club/company re-emerge as a new club/company taking the old club/companies place in the SPL? If so would this be a decision for the SPL Board or would it be a decision for all non-liquidated members of the SPL in General Meeting passing an Ordinary Resolution, a Qualified Resolution or a Special Qualified Resolution? Please provide details of the specific rule(s) from the Rules and Regulations of the SPL and/or the particular article(s) from The Articles of Association of the SPL or subsequent clarification letters of the Rules and Regulations and/or Article of Association of the SPL that would support this decision?

     

     

     

    In summary: Are the SPL and as Chief Executive Officer, you, fully aware of how the SPL plan to apply the Rules & Regulations of the SPL and/or the specific Articles of Association of the SPL in relation to the questions put to you above with regards a non-specific SPL club/company experiencing a liquidation event that sees an attempt to transfer the share of the liquidated member/company to a new member/company formed from the ashes of the liquidated club/company in order to gain the old members/companies position in the SPL?

     

     

     

    Yours Sincerely

    Brian Clough got it right all those years ago –

     

     

    ‘ You can take all your medals and all those titles and throw them in that bin. Because you won every one of them by cheating.’
