I know where you are coming from, however with the movement involving Scott and Gilligan on the same day I tend to think it is something else.

Gilligan resigned as a director in May. Was removed as a POSC in November and it was reported at Companies House on Dec 11th.

Scott was appointed as  Director on 11th December and notifies as a POSC on the same day.

There is also a confirmation statement posted on 11th December, dated 16th November which shows 5 major shareholders

I think for Johnston or Scott it is more likely to be one of the other conditions.

Directly or indirectly holds the right to appoint or remove a majority of board of directors.
Has the right to exercise, or actually exercises, significant influence or control of the company, LLP or SE.

That is pure conjecture on my part, he may well have bought King’s shares, however it would have to have brought him up to owning or controlling 25%.

Do we think Scott has also bought 25%

Or that Gilligan used to control 25%

Former Rangers favourite Gordon Smith has hit out at the Ibrox board for their bitter response to Derek McInnes’ snub.
Gers released a statement on Thursday night after learning the Aberdeen boss had turned down the chance to return to his old club as manager.
It said they had “endorsed” the 46-year-old’s decision to stay put as they hinted he was not up to managing “a massive club like Rangers”.
The statement added: “We continue to consider candidates but will only appoint someone in whom we have full confidence and who feels he is ready for the job.”
But those words have perplexed former striker Smith – who also previously served at Ibrox as director of football.
He told Sky Sports News: “I find the whole thing astonishing.
“It seems strange that it takes so long to make the appointment, then when Derek turns it down they come out with this statement saying it was probably the right thing that he stays at Pittodrie because really they were trying to assess whether he was the right person for the job and the fact he is staying at Pittodrie proves he isn’t the right person.
“It’s almost like they are saying he didn’t have the bottle for such a big role.
“It absolutely is an embarrassment for the Rangers board. They are trying to say now that he wasn’t the number one candidate.
“I just don’t understand how they can say that.”

I think it’s reasonable to assume that Rangers would have offered Derek McInnes personal terms which at least matched those which he has at Aberdeen so there have to be other reasons that he did not want the job. I just thought I would have a think about what those might be and jot a few down.

1, He is happy at Aberdeen and doesn’t actually want to go anywhere.

2, The other club did not want his backroom staff as part of a package and he likes working with them.

3, Rangers would not pay the compensation so he would have had to breach his contact and then be sued by Aberdeen. He was not willing to do that.

4, He did not want to work under a Director of Football. Or the specific one at Rangers.

5, He did not want to work for the Rangers board, either not liking or not trusting them. Possibly both.

6, He did not want to manage a team whose support turn on people, and whose expectations far exceed reality.

7, He knew that he would have to seriously re-build the squad and knew there simply weren’t the resources to do it properly. (See 6)

8, He did not want to put his family through the consequences of perceived failure (See 6)

I’m sure other people can come up with more good reasons for declining the post. The point is, there are a lot of them.

The only plus seems to be “But we’re Rangers and we’re massive”.

The problem with the plus side is … well it isn’t really true.

Is that the £29m that was mentioned in the BDO update EJ.

I am neither Derek McInnes or an Aberdeen supporter.

Sorry if anyone is shocked by that revelation.

However if I was I would find that Rangers statement insulting and condescending.

The position of Rangers manager requires an ability to win football matches and the mentality to cope with the demanding off-pitch environment that goes with being the Rangers manager. This is a critical aspect of our assessment of any candidate during the interview process.

After the two games against Aberdeen, we requested permission to engage with their manager to assess his readiness and willingness to consider the Rangers position. This was declined. We were subsequently made aware by Aberdeen’s statement that, at this stage in his career, it would be best for him to remain in his current post. We endorse that position because moving to a massive club like Rangers is a big step with concomitant risk. We continue to consider candidates but will only appoint someone in whom we have full confidence and who feels he is ready for the job.

Absolutely disgraceful.
