    There is a comparison with an English club regards Rangers becoming a Newco – Darlington. Except that, as Darlington moves forward without debts & also without a CVA, they face expulsion from the Conference and having to play in Tier 8 or lower. Because Darlo have breached the rules & are facing the consequences.

    One law for one…

  2. Rangers are well beyond farce. The administrators try to convince the world that this doesn’t involve liquidation, without explaining how a company stripped of all assets & future income will achieve a CVA (it won’t because this is a liquidation).

    At the same time, they make no mention of Craig White, owner of said assets, Ticketus, purchaser of rights to said future income or HMRC, who await the opportunity to expose one of the biggest corporate tax scams in recent memory.

    The media is fed meaningless PR (i.e. lies) from Rangers, the SPL are desperate to preserve cash over integrity or decency with no regard for UEFA’s reported “concerns” and we’re expected to buy into all this as if it’s for the good of football that this rotten “institution” is rescued from its own stupidity?

    In that case, I’m off to set up an EBT.

    Sometimes, I wish there was an option above ALL CAPS, just so people could really get their message across.

    @Trueblue…..if that’s the best comeback you’ve got [all without a shred of evidence] then you are pathetic to say the least. Wake up and smell the coffee, your club is either going to be stuck in the lower divisions for years or you’ll get voted into the SPL with no ability to sign anyone over 18 years old, no European football / money and much reduced SPL money……..!!
    If you want to get out of this mess … PAY YOUR BILLS like everyone else has to and stop cheating..!!

    with people like Trueblue supporting them i think the whole of Europe will breathing a sigh of rlief at not having the mindless hordes on their doorsteps for a few years. They are not called the “Huns” for nothing.

    Typical rangers fan. You arent happy that people dont buy the garbage coming from your club so you resort to comments about child abuse. Get a life

  9. true blue calm down haha,gettin a bit hot there big man why dont you just go kick yhe shit out yir misses or is she still sore from sunday .look it cost me one whole pound to bring the people! down would have went to £1.50 but there you are but listen YOUR DEAD DEAD DEAD stupid hun.stupid stupid hun go back to murderwell your grandkids will be celtic fans hail hail


    TRUEBLUE,,is it not time you crawled back under your rock you slime ? Anyway,the article was refreshing and it is a pity that the MSM are not so candid or lucid !

    To Mr Trueblue as an English obsever of the goings on I have noticed your comments on several blogs. All of them are secterian and/or racist rants and I will be reporting them to the Police. So now you may be able to assemble some prison knowledge from personal experience.

  12. mac says:

    Did you think that all up by yourself trueblue?. Bless. It’s blatantly obvious rangers will be allowed straight back in. The ruling bodies are petrified of the consequences otherwise. Is it right?? Most definitely not, but as stated rangers have stolen approximately £20 off every man, woman AND child in the country and will walk away relatively unscathed and debt free (Or just about). Given the farce that Scottish football has become I find it hard to believe SKY and ESPN are combined offering £80 million for that level of football, but money talks I guess. Hang your head in shame Doncaster.

    Give back the titles ye cheated to win

  14. Ian Thompson says:

    I think you will find that the Leeds CVA was only challenged by the Inland Revenue who did it in the very last hour that they could

    To the second poster, two wrongs will never make a right. Whatever happened at Celtic (and I say this as a fan of a lower league SPL club) in the past is of no relevance to Rangers’ current case. If Celtic scammed back then, well that is surely wrong and the Inland Revenue (or whoever was responsible back then) should have looked into it. That they did not is no reason why Rangers (and any other club in their situation) has to be let off scot-free now.

    As for abusing the writer, I am pretty sure he knows the ins-and-outs of tax issues more than either you or I. It is one of this site’s strengths.

    We will see what happens in the fullness of time. I suspect Rangers will be allowed to remain in the SPL (no matter how far the rules have to be bent in order for it to happen) and I strongly suspect that, despite what some of their supporters think, Celtic would be treated favourably if it was they who were currently in the dock (as the other half of the SPL’s cash cow). If it plays out like many suspect, the SPL will be a laughing stock amongst those from other shores (well, the ones who take heed of the Scottish game anyway!).

    There is way too much hysteria about this. The basics of Bill Miller’s plan look sensible to me. A CVA can be pursued and there will be more time to do this as the newco continues on. Both options are covered: CVA and no CVA. Over £11 million is there for the creditors with possibly more money to come in. Meanwhile Rangers have already received four punishments and may well get more.

    poster 2

    half the crowd in they days didnt pay…kids were thrown over the turnstiles and a lhell of a lot double shuffled….how can you add that to the attendance…although that wouldnt have happened at ibrox, would it? i mean, you have always paid the dignified way

  19. Auldheid says:

    The CST are meeting Mr Donacster next week. Theey are aware of his mnisrepressentations on air and in other mattersof rules interpretations.

    Both CST and CSA are discussing their stance but hope other sclub’s suporters are doinfg the same.

  20. Cuthbert says:


    Three owners in a row who dodge tax.

    Now that’s history.

    Rangers can’t win without cheating, they can’t even survive without cheating.

    Now that’s dignity.

  24. Jasper says:

    Trueblue is simply voicing the standard response of Rangers fans eerywhere, when faced with facts. They’ve repeated the mantra “Deflect and deny….Deflect and deny” until it has become so second nature that they not only can repeat it verbatim in their sleep, but they actually believe its endless repetition will drive away the evil spirits.

    If it fails however, then someone else can easily be blamed, as in “But THEY do it too!”. And of course as a final resort to derail any discussion and avoid being proved wrong, there’s always the particularly erudite and highly-favoured assertion”Big Jock knew.” This is usually screamed, and is normally accompanied by bulging veins on neck and forehead, and a fair amount of froth in tje orners of the lips.

    When dealing with knuckledraggers and neanderthals, it’s a good idea to keep all of this in mind, and to speak (type) slowly and softly, so as not to send them into that state known as permarage. The onset of this condition is predicated by excessive use of capital letters and plaintive cries of WATP, which freely translates to “We Are The Paupers” although claims have been made that the meaning is actually “Where Are The Pounds?”

  25. jocky bhoy says:

    Trueblue. Thanks for your comment. Trying to score some sick point at the expense of abused children. No wonder the fans.of every other team in Scotland are praying for your teams demise you headcase.

  26. Jocky Bhouy another Ass H— WHO DOES NOT LIKE THE TRUTH IT,S YOUR PEOPLE who like to sweep everything under the carpet where are they because we dont do walking away P—-. W.A.T.P.

    ! the sooner they go under the better! thank god for david murray!

  28. StAndrewsBhoy says:

    @ bluenose Wullie,

    Yes thats right no walking away, just like SDM, Mr. Ng, Paul Murray, Brido and their “RichButCan’tFind500K” mates the Blue Fairy Lights. No walking away, ever.

    I suppose you are quite happy that the crown is being stiffed for c.100Mm and all those little creditors who supplied the club in good faith?

    You reap what you sow.


  29. Minesastella says:

    Bluenose + trueblue – spelling and grammar not strong points for you eh? I’d blame the schools.

    Watch the YouTube link above – it gives you an indication of how the world sees you

  30. Steven says:

    @ bluenose wullie, your a vile rat .. It’s not been hidden under any carpet unlike Bancorp boys home ….forget about. That 1 eh !!!! Anyway take your blue tinted glasses off scumbag .. Rangers football club should an will be a non entity from the end of the season .. An I for 1 will be glad that they die , because like you 90% of your supporters are bike thugs an scumbags .. You have been an always will be Scotland’s shame … An u can girfuy u are not the ppl .. Jelly n icecream when rangers die .. No flowers please … An succulantcarcass ..

  31. taliesin says:

    a newco means the business continues trading with a new owner – liquidation means no company at all – if a newco takes over which it will and a team called rangers plays at I brox there is no LIQIDATION – simple matter of law — celtic fans forget they were also on the brink and saved by fergus mccann ( our bill miller ) — do people really think the SPL will kiss goodbye to 80 MILL sky money and render the SPL uncompetitive—no chance and Miller would not have proceeded if he hadnt agreed in principle with the SPL , SFA HMRC et all — the worlds most successful club will be back and scottish football can be very relieved

  32. mick f says:

    This is one of the best written articles on this subject. If you go to Ibrox for the truth you’ll be bullied or threatend into accepting they make the rules & everyone will just have to accept it. Thst’s one of the main reasons Doncaster is SCARED to say anything critical about Rangers. If the actions of gers fans are allowed to win the day then it’ll become their way to control the game, would be just as well giving the SPL/SFA to Rangers & let them do what they want. SCOTTISH FOOTBALL has to stand up & do the right thing.

  33. andyt says:

    You muppets really think that rangers are the only team to have used trusts to reduce bills, you will be shocked to know alot of teams in the epl are very very scared of the outcome of the tax case as a pecedence wait for it!! Don’t tar people when your own league use them on a weekly basis. The english will be ignorrant til it comes out and beleive me i know they use them. heed my words then we will laugh at you as their will be sanctions.

  34. broxburnbear says:

    Lets look at some facts, Rangers are in adminstration Fact, they have not been liquidated Fact They have been deducted 10 pointsFact Rangers have been punished more than (under appeal)any team entering in to administration Fact Motherwell were deducted 10 points but received no other punishment fact. then Motherwell will never challenge Celtic for the SPL title. Until Rangers went into administration there were no rules to decide how a newco would be treated.

    There should be a cap placed on the salaries say 60% of turnover as evidenced and proven(for the season 2012-2013 it should be for accounts to june 30 2011 and these should be submitted 1 month before the first game) to the league

    Turning to the supposed polls which say that 95% of Fans wont go back to SPL games if a Newco Rangers is allowed back in the league, lets just think which team has the largest number of fans apart from Rangers and are well known for poll rigging and have most to gain from Rangers’s absence from The SPL. I better not say their name as that is apparently sectarian or racist. None their fans are neither of those aparrt from the guy arrested for abusing Kyle Bartley on the internet.

    Newco or not Rangers will survive and the sweetest part of it all is that it will stick in the throats of those who wished us dead

  35. Mark Chalcraft says:


    Personally I’m well aware of the rumours about Premier League clubs using EBTs. Actually it’s the main reason I take a close interest in Rangers, and I hope HMRC go after those clubs with equal gusto.

    Arsenal were one such club, though there willingness to settle up means they will not be on the radar.

    One of the reasons why this site is so good is it covers all manner of financially stricken clubs with dubious practices, with not a hint of bias.

  36. Mick says:

    Yes, Rangers will survive – too many rule-benders in high places in their pocket for it not to happen.

    But Scottish football will be finished within 3 years. When this charade goes through, I will only go and see my team if they resign from the SPL and play in the SFL.
