Quantcast

The evidence is in, you have been cheated

406

There is so much material to wade through as a result of the excellent BBC documentary, Rangers – The men who sold the jerseys.  Much of it is of only passing interest to us, although we will examine it in more detail in the days to come, one part, however, concerns Celtic and Celtic fans more any anyone else in Scotland.

BBC have evidence that the following players had side letters contracting payment to Employee Benefit Trusts:

Alex Rae, Arthur Numan, Barry Ferguson, Carlos Cuellar, Christian Nerlinger, Craig More, Dado Prso, Dan Eggen, Egil Ostenstad, Fernando Ricksen, Gavin Rae, Gregory Vignal, Jean-Alain Boumsong, Jerome Bonnissel, Julien Rodriguez, Kris Boyd, Lorenzo Amoruso, Kevin Muscat, Libor Sionko, Marvin Andrews, Michael Ball, Mikel Arteta, Michael Mols, Nacho Novo, Paolo Vanoli, Pedro Mendes, Neil McCann, Olivier Bernard, Peter Lovenkrands, Ronald De Boer, Sasa Papac, Ronald Waterreus, Sotirios Kyrgiakos, Stefan Klos, Steven Davis, Steven Thompson, Thomas Buffel and Zurab Khizanishvilli

The BBC list a large number of other Rangers players and non-playing staff who benefited from EBTs but they have no documentary evidence of side letters.

Scottish FA registration procedures are clear:

Rule 2.2.1

Unless lodged in accordance with Procedures Rule 2.13 a Non-Recreational [professional]Contract Player Registration Form will not be valid unless it is accompanied by the contract entered into between the club concerned and the player stating all the terms and conditions in conformity with the Procedures Rule 4.

“Will not be valid” being the key point.

The SFA’s Articles of Association also say:

Furthermore, all payments, whether made by the club or otherwise, which are to be made to a player solely relating to his playing activities must be fully recorded within the relevant written agreement with the player prior to submission to this Association and/or the recognised football body of which his club is in membership.

Article 98 states:

A club making payment of any kind to a player, either amateur or professional, must obtain from the player a written receipt for the same showing details of the payment, and any club under the jurisdiction of the Association must produce such receipts to the Association when called upon to do so. For a player registered by means of a Full Professional Form, a club must produce on request receipts for the wages paid to him in terms of his agreement lodged with the Association.

Documentary evidence exists that Rangers played 38 players with invalid registrations between 2000 and 2010 (the last year financial information is available for Rangers) .  Results from all games involving these players, which is all games Rangers have played since 2000, are void.

I am sure the BBC will forward all evidence to the SFA and SPL for investigation.

You were cheated out of five league championships.  Fortunately, evidence exists and the history books will be rewritten.

The SFA and SPL must immediately take action.  A statement must be made this morning reflecting the gravity of the situation and reassuring fans that our game’s administrators are able to deal with this matter.

12-in-a-row!  Who would have thought it!

Just a quick comment on Juninho. Juninho had an EBT for a short period while he was at Celtic. He had no side letters or contracts from Celtic and tax was paid on money paid into the EBT. ‘Nothing to see here’.

  1. Loved the BBC docudrama last night, particularly the guy who played Baxendale-Walker, but to say he over-acted with the “hero” line would be understatement of the century.

     

     

    What?

    I’m pretty confident there will be more to come. I’d guess Myth, McCoist, Gascoigne and possibly even Laudrup were all on double contracts.

     

     

    There is definitely more stuff on Souness – particularly the Boumsong transfer. And possibly more dirt on the Hutton move as well.

     

     

    No point in releasing it all at the same time.

  4. CultsBhoy loves being 1st forever & ever on

    Badendale Walker was the highlight.

     

    Poor man’s Hugh Hefner.

  5. I didn’t notice Maurice Johnston on that list,were those EBT payments in play when Judas went there

  6. CultsBhoy loves being 1st forever & ever on

    ‘The Gers’… Has the making of a great soap opera. Give River City a run for its money…

     

     

    Baxendale Walker could be the JR character..

    Aye. EBT. Souness. An employee? Really? While he was men against bhoys boss?

     

     

    As I also said last night, it begs the questions: when was his trust started? and who else had one? were they players?

     

     

    **coughs** Kuznetsov and Mickhailachenko **coughs**

    Ironically, Judas signed for them because they were willing to pay his UK on French earnings, whereas we were not – his 30 pieces, if you will.

     

     

    But aye, if the beast had one set up when he was an EMPLOYEE, it stands to reason that there may have been others from that time.

    Mmm ——

     

     

    Up early and do the watch BBC I player whilst living in another country thing..

     

     

    Nothing new -apart from the Prince .

     

     

    Now waiting to see what the SFA / SPL say and do..

     

     

    The Duff and Phelps /David Grier and Ticketus stuff is of great interest . Lots of good stuff there – conflict of interest / failure to disclose / preclusion from acting . Collyer Bristow / Gary Withey / Craig Whyte / Ticketus / Minty etc.. A legal mess . An Utter mess. Lord Hodge might be forced to Rip it Up and Start again .

     

     

    Rangers —– the business – Finito ! .

     

     

    The SPL / SFA —- will they deal with Rangers -The SPL club ..?

     

     

    Warm and sunny [ low 80s -way down south.]

  10. joe millers shorts on

    So much good news to read this morning that i cant keep up.

     

    I was wondering if the offshore Trust itself has been investigated? Who ran the trust and how close are their links with Murray etc.

  11. leftclicktic @ 09:21,

     

     

    Great stuff from RTC,

     

     

    Huge Kudos to this uncompromising righter of wrongs.

  12. ArranmoreBhoyLXV11 on

    Mmm Radio Scotland line not ” very clear” when discussing Rankers at 7.30am, according to the host.. Are they scared of offending bears.?This followed a piece from HMRC about tackling tax dodgers..

    Tic tock

  13. Joe Filippis Haircut on

    There imo be other players who were not mentioned last night involved in there cheating but I assume that the B.B.C. did not have documentry evidence.One thing I will give the masonic huns they know how to stick together and say nothing.H.H.

  14. Imatim and so is Neil Lennon on

    2010 Never Again

     

     

    Is there a link anywhere to last nights BBC expose on the huns? Thanks

  15. Currently in work, but I am still so happy right now, which defies the logic for being in the office.

     

     

    The BBC and Mark Daly have made me a very happy man, which just doesn’t sound right ;o)

     

     

    Eagerly anticipating a statement form the SFA and SPL

     

     

    Let the fat burd start warming her vocal chrords, as its coming.

  16. Steinreignedsupreme on

    That’s great news on rangerstaxcase. I’m so pleased that work has been recognised. RTC, Paul, Phil Mac Giolla Bhain, and more recently Mark Daly and Alex Thomson have all done great work in getting this story moving.

     

     

    There is still much to do though. Certain people will have to be dragged out of their positions – the majority of the Scottish media will continue to pretend nothing has happened.

  17. Awe_Naw_No_Annoni_Oan_Anaw_Noo on

    Paul Baxenndale Walker strides out to the pool puts on his sun glasses. Leah Shevlin resplendent in thong and plastic boobies is supping from her,Bacardi Breezer through a straw mind as class on such a scale can never be concealed.

    Paul starts to strum

     

     

    Let me turn you to zero

    Zbyszek @ 9 22 ..

     

     

    Italian rumor mongers claim that Lazio are the front runners and are already discussing terms / money etc .

     

     

    One Italian rumor monger claims that Juve and Napoli are also interested . That rumor monger claims that the relevant agent has stated that Zibi Boniek is not involved . [ I haven’t seen anything claiming he was involved -why deny something that hasn’t been claimed ? ]

     

     

    Zibi does his stuff on the Sunday night Serie A highlights programme – I like him —– strong and forthright in his opinions . Knows his stuff !

  19. Well, that was fun wasn’t it?

     

     

    So we have a new game of that old Question of Sport favourite, what happens next?

     

     

    Events we might see:

     

     

    Duff and Phelps are replaced as administrators

     

    Charles Green walks away because there is not enough time to save the huns

     

    Players leave for pastures new

     

    Lots of court cases start

     

    SPL admits that there is a case to answer on contracts

     

    The Big Tax Case appeal result comes out

     

    The huns are liquidated

     

     

    Or perhaps all of them – but in what order?

  20. Dead and Loving it on

    rangers should take some more advice off the porn king next year.

     

     

    Think that will be their only chance of getting near a semi

  21. If the outcomes are people leaving their positions within the SFA then it cannot be a case of, more of the same please, no this will have to evolve the same way as the Judicial Panels. por cierto

  22. dirtymac.

     

     

    I don’t know when EBT’s came into being,I would start looking from 1872 onwards.

  23. Nell Dungcaster statement:

     

    We have investigated the possibility of rearranging the deckchairs and are doing so as we speak. Starboard was my preference. blub.

  24. “Early in life I had noticed that no event is ever correctly reported in a newspaper.”

     

    George Orwell…por cierto

  25. I posted yesterday that I had a concern that many of us would be disappointed with Daly’s expose and that I feared that much of the content would already be known to us, the internet bamsticks. My hope was that it was hard hitting enough to make the rest of Scotland sit up and take notice whilst the cheats and liars were sitting in their plush, luxurious sitting rooms squirming uncomfortably like a dog with worms.

     

     

    I was wrong.

     

     

    Wow what a piece of fantastic journalism by Mark Daly. The news regarding The Beast and a payment of £30,000 weeks prior to him signing Tugay (and 10 years after his contract with the huns ended) was dynamite.

     

     

    I’ve never met Watterus or his agent but I’d like to shake them both by the hand and buy them a pint.

  26. What a show last night lads, i would love to know why the other names were missing though.

     

     

    Paul, Phil, Mark, Alex, and RTC.

     

     

    You guys put the succulent brigade to shame again.

  27. Just another wee mention for our hero,

     

     

    That Prince Albert line… Ellis could hardly keep a straight face.

     

     

    Don’t tell embdee, he likes to keep his name oot a’things.

     

     

    No wonder SDM didn’t elaborate on his dupedness.
