Somewhere on an upper floor at Hampden SFA and SPL high office holders will be mulling over player contracts submitted by Rangers over the last decade, including for players still registered at the club.
They will compare what they have on file with yesterday’s revelations in The Sun. As far as the football authorities are concerned, everything will be in good order if Rangers submitted these side contracts, which featured appearance money, to the league and SFA.
But, if the club submitted these contracts to the football authorities, they would have to declare them to the tax authorities as income.
It would be good to hear from some of the very vocal former directors of Rangers on this subject, especially the one currently president of the SFA.
This matter has nothing to do with Our Hero, remember, who is currently drawing fire away from those who put Rangers into danger in the first place, however, Mr Whyte is wholly responsible for the “public censure” issued to Rangers by the Plus Stock Exchange today. The resultant £50k fine the least of the club’s worries.
