…Well done, Scott – …
Not me, AJ. It was ThomtheThim (and I believe JC) who wrote to Matt pointing out the inaccuracies. That’s where credit belongs and with Matt for making the changes. So well done guys

Copy of mail sent to Mark Scott this morning.*******Hi Matt,
Now amended. Much better
The matter relates to the two cases HM Revenue & Customs (HMRC) brought against Rangers and precipitated the club’s financial demise, from which followed their relicensing as a new club in Scottish football’s bottom professional tier. At least three former Rangers players, Craig Moore, Tore Andre Flo and Ronald De Boer, were paid through a complicated offshore Employee Benefit Trust (EBT) known as a Discounted Options Scheme (DOS).

The congratulatory letters to Rangers are a complete aside. The most significant part is below.
I get that UTH. I just don’t believe that what is said is significant of anything more than inter-governmental etiquette. It certainly doesn’t say that AS was trying to broker any favourable deal. I really think you read too much into it. Should he have got involved? Probably not. Was there something squalid and underhand going on? Probably not.

If 50% of the people have to take up the offer then how does that defend the position of small shareholders, which is the point of the rule as I understand it.
It’s not 50% of the people. It’s enough shares to take the concert parties holding to 50%+1. If they already have 35.5% or thereabouts, it’s less than 15% of all shares; about 24% of the shares out there that they don’t already hold. He will undoubtedly try to stiff Margarita/Blue whatsisname etc by trying to claim they can’t trade their shares, so that could end up in court again
Enough is enough
I’d like to see statistics regarding the ground covered by the various players last night. I lost count of the number of relatively tight TV shots where 3 or fewer Celtic players were ‘covered’ by 8 or more outfield Bayern players. They were everywhere

I wonder how DK’s legals satisfied themselves that they would get their fees? Is it the practice for QCs to ask for money up front? Or will King be able to claim on the ‘directors’ liability’ insurance cover?
John, I think PMG has blogged that he asked the RIFC board to cover his legal expenses and they said no. As for Director’s liability, I’m not sure it would cover this

Alisdair Lamont not at court today
Hopefully someone else will live tweet it. If I had known I might have gone down there myself, being unexpectedly at home
