Now That Rangers Are Saved, Part Three

Rangers’ spell in administration was best summed up deep in one of Court of Session Judge Lord Hodge’s many Rangers pronouncements over recent months. Paragraph fifty of his directions to administrators Duff & Phelps on the once thorny subject of Ticketus began “Administration has developed as a very flexible procedure to cope with the likely…
