    “The bid also airbrushed majority shareholder Craig Whyte out of the picture – a popular but legally-challengeable move”

    A few things in the article grate somewhat, but BM’s way of doing it was actually quite clever. It wasn’t legally challengeable, Administrators havethe powers to sell-on the assets without the permission of the shareholders or even floating charge holders (CW was both). So what do you think is challengeable?

    Hi Mark, apart from the UEFA statutes, there is an argument that the Miller plan falls into the category of “Phoenix Activities” which are classified as fraudulent under UK insolvency law. Not a lawyer but a quick look in Google suggests his plan was a non starter.

    a very well written piece on the ibrox saga. i can understand why the SPL+SFA are bending backwards to help rangers but can you tell me why HMRC have not given a positive date to deliberate on the exact amount owed by rangers, and what irregularities took place? i assume they are not part of the web determined to maintain rangers “admirable” history.

    You are absolutely right in what you say about the administrators’ powers over charge holders. The “legally-challengeable” bit is where Whyte the CREDITOR can apply for a ruling that the administrators have acted in such a way as to unfairly harm his interests.

    I know only a little of the law and have gone through something of a crash course via Paul McConville’s excellent “Random Thoughts on Scots Law” website which, as I wrote recently, appears to have mutated into “Specific thoughts on Scots Law as it affects Rangers.” But I suspect and hope that such a move by Whyte would be treated with contempt. All I’m saying is that the option is there.
