Comment on Two wrongs and a right by wottpi.

Yesterday Easyjambo included the following with regard to the indictments

CW, GW & DG made false representations to Murray Holdings Ltd re funding of the purchase and the future funding of the club including the wee tax case (£2,800,000) and an H&S liability (£1,700,000)

Today the DR reports

Whyte, 44, is accused with Grier, Whitehouse, Clark and Withey of failing to pay a £2.8million tax bill and VAT, PAYE or national insurance while running the football business.

Therefore can we now assume that the prosecutors believe there was an outstanding tax bill regarding the wee tax case (£2.8m) point of sale.

SDM and those operating Rangers prior to the sale appear to have accepted there was an outstanding tax bill as it appears to have been, correctly, identified as a liability for the company and thus clearly identified in the sale conditions.

The only people in Scotland who seem to determine that the wee tax case bill was not outstanding until some time, miraculously after Uefa’s 30 June 2011 deadline date was the SFA. 

I wonder if the fraud case will put in concrete, via the courts,  the fact that the wee tax case was due at the time of the application for a Euro licence in 2011.

Therefore the SFA were ‘duped’ and thus incompetent or simply devious in their own (yet again) torturous interpretation of rules to help one particualr club.

Either way another I hope we have another nail in the coffin but my guess is that the heads that should roll may well have done a runner before the fraud case gets resolved.

Thought the exact same when I read Phil Mac’s piece and glad for the offishul EJ clarification. 02

I would hope that the auditors haven’t been thrown a dummy along the lines of :-

Q. Why is the WiFi not working
A. Is broken

Can see how there may be monies owed or in dispute on unsold stock but not on the shop closures, unless there is some hidden stuff (conditions and penalties etc) we don’t yet know about.

Two wrongs and a right
Talking about the SFA doing something for the wee guy.

Next meaningless friendly at Hampden, if available, have a draw to get some normal punters entertained in any of the unused corporate boxes.

Two wrongs and a right
Re the EK v Celtic cup tie.
I notice Hampden was the EK second choice
Anyone think Barry Hearn would have missed the marketing opportunity of a life time to allow the diddiest of diddy teams to run out on the national stadium’s pitch against the top club in the country in a David v Goliath match.
Even if nobody turned up for the game itself,  the story would have been told world wide.
I know who the amateurs are when it comes to Scottish Football and its not the likes of EK.

Indeed. And that was my other thought.
Even if Mark Allen does a good job T”Rangers wouldn’t see any cash for any upcoming talent (internal or bought in)  for a god number of years.
To date a good few lads showing talent have been allowed to leave to keep the lights on.
At present the only prospect they have is McRorie who I think has stepped up and performed well when asked.He certainly has confidence and could develop into a decent centre back playing with the likes of Souttar for Scotland.

I am sure the thought will have crossed other’s minds but will say it anyway.
Celtics ‘free money’ from the VVD  transfer is more than T’Rangers stated  loan requirements to keep the lights on for the next year or two.
Thats the size of the gap between Celtic and the rest of us.

Thought that may be the case but was wondering if someone would be trying to get ahead of the game.
