There are some quite incredible allegations now being made around the web about a large football club based in the Ibrox area of Glasgow. I won’t repeat them on here because I don’t know if they are true. Twitter is awash with them, so to speak, and the posters have form for being right.

Upthehoops,It is true that certain politicians pleaded on behalf of RFC .Their pleas were rebuffed, which is why BDO are currently busy with the liquidation of RFC, and HMRC have pursued the tax through the courts.I am sure,should there be another Tax bill, HMRC will diligently pursue what they consider is due.Politicians can say what they like, but it is an offence for any person to obstruct an officer in the course of his duties.Any attempt to interfere, will, I am sure, be well and truly booted into the long grass.

==============================

I know Oddjob, but Politicians really shouldn’t be seen to support tax evasion, no matter who it is.

In my opinion , any business/company who has given TRIFC credit since 2012 deserve to be wripped off, if I was a manager with ANY of these companies, whoever signed the contract to supply whatever service would be sacked.And this also applies to people who bought season books AND shares.

========================

What is far worse in my view is the number of politicians, some senior, who in 2012 thought it was okay for Rangers to deliberately evade tax. Rather than demanding that the taxes which underpin our democratic society were paid in full, they instead urged HMRC to take what they could get and not to liquidate the club. If the allegations they are behind on VAT are true, then I fully expect the same thing to happen again. I repeat once again the Emergency Services were ordered to provide cover at Rangers games in 2012 despite the bills not getting paid.  The shortfall would have been made up by money collected from honest taxpayers. Not a single politician had an issue with that.

And the police have been fined and Criticised for their heavy handed involvement in the arrests of ex ibrox chairmen and administrators and Criticised for their handling of ibrox fans at a cup final.The police don’t seem to be getting much joy from things from ibrox

=======================================

The cynic in me sees a situation where being able to prove in a court Rangers were victims of a fraud by shady people would effectively be a legally stamped clean bill of health for the club. The only problem is they would actually have to have been a victim of fraud in the first place. The courts have taken some convincing so far, with only Whyte still to walk away free of any charges.

Wow! I know we are not meant to put much store on the thumbs up or down, but two people have given thumbs down to this post! Who on earth could find fault with a post respecting the dead from the Ibrox disaster?

================================

A bit puzzled at the thumbs down myself A.J, but there’s nowt queerer than folk as they say!

On this day in 1971, the Ibrox disaster happened during a Rangers v Celtic game at Ibrox. 66 fans died in a crush. Some of us remember that day, some of us may even have been there, while some of us would not even be on this earth at the time. 

We are all football fans. Nobody should go to a football match and never return home. Rest in Peace.

“If they move out of Hampden, the SFA are in danger of leaving themselves hostages to Rangers and Celtic,” said Queen’s Park president Alan Hutchison.

======================

I am a Celtic shareholder and if it was up to me (which it is not), I would tell the SFA here and now that Celtic Park is unavailable for any future fixture.  However I know that will not happen, but I doubt there is anything they could do to force Celtic to allow them use of the stadium.

I see, too, that PMGB is issuing challenges, in two posts, to the Ibrox based boards to issue denials of what he is telling us.

============================

I see it is alleged £800k is owed to suppliers. In my view unless any of it is due to a financial behemoth such as one of the big six energy suppliers, then we are unlikely to see any winding up requests heading towards court. It simply wouldn’t be worth the risk for any small supplier in Scotland to do that. Having said that I find it remarkable anyone is willing to extend them any sort of credit at all, or are they worried about the bully boys on that score as well?

I’m sure the SFA will want to satisfy themselves all is well though. I am also sure a herd of pink elephants takes off from Glasgow Airport at 20:00hrs tonight with the moon as their destination.

Phil McG alleging a surveyor has recently visited Rangers training ground to attain a valuation, and that King has also approached a non-Uk Finance House. As Phil says this may well be King raising funds to make a share offer, but IMO it could be to raise working capital too.
