Comment on Reflections on Goalposts by Long Time Lurker.

Rumours circulating on Twitter that Mr Whyte’s comeback is scheduled for around 07 Feb 2014. suggestions that he is making a move to secure the assets that he believes are owned by Sevco 5088 – indeed he could move to start a seperate version of the club.

Is anyone else hearing anything – has anything appeared on the Court rolls yet that may suggest such a return?

The OG Rafferty posts on CQN are really interesting:

From what I can gather, TGEF may be making a move on his claim over the assets before the club/company goes bust – as its game over for Whyte if an admin or lquidation event puts the assets outwith the reach of his claim.

Perhaps the Spivs were in a race to bust the club/company as a defence against TGEF progressing the claim?

Have Rangers met the UEFA criteria to play in Europe re established sets of audited accounts etc.?

Just a theory.
What if HMRC have sent demands to EBT recipients. Presumably the holders of side letters will be looking to the [ahem] club to make good any taxes due.
Now, if the club does not have the means to honour the side letters – could we be about to see confirmation from EBT holders and/or the Club, that the Club has died?

An interesting tweet from @Barcabhoy this afternoon.

Now been seen by 130,000 people. The reason why the @Record_Sport rushed out an old non event story will be evident soon.

Overdue VAT from Q1 and Q2.
Stadia roof issues appear have reached critical point, where fan safety an issue.
Possibility that Celtic FC will not sell tickets to protect safety of their fans, then others will also follow.
Gate receipts appear to be keeping the club/company alive. If there is a drop in sales due to stadia safety issues where seats cannot be sold, then ash flow will, in my view, more likely than not become a terminal issue.
Only other option would be to attract investment – who is going to invest, if tens of millions required to keep a roof in place?
If club play games from another stadia – where will the rental income require come from?
Allowing VAT to become overdue and the stadia to fall into a critical state of disrepair suggests that there is no effective governance and management in place at the club.

I believe that the SC will hear the BDO appeal in the first quarter of 2017.

Lots of interesting chatter in the last 24 hours – something is brewing. A least one suggestion that HMRC have served a VAT demand on Rangers.

Morning all, Can you help me with this,Having a wee debate with a TRFC supporting pal wrt EBTs.I know BDO have been granted leave to appeal to the Supreme Court but have they actually done so?. If not is there a time limit they must adhere to.?.I understand that if no appeal is forthcoming then COS decision stands.
