While I think that CO will try and divert the dual contracts hearing, allied with no faith in the SFA, SPL, to carry out any serious level of punishment, I am wondering how they try to explain away any lenient decision.

The statement, “Mr Indigo(rangers player) believed that the Trust had been used to pay appearance money and bonuses.” “Mr Thornhill conceded that where it derived from a (footballer’s) side-letter it was contractual”, is a pretty damaging statement. (Though you would be hard pressed to find it in the MSM).

The BBC prog said that over 40 side letters were seen and the vast majority were player related. It should follow from any reasonable conclusion, that the highest level of punishment be applied
to a club that deliberately withheld this information from its governing body.

Do I expect the punishment to be severe, like many others no I do not.

As European games were involved, I fail to see why UEFA cannot become involved or at the very least, notified of the details of the investigation.

might be OT but relates to HMRC an RFC(IA)

How low can some people go.

Stephen Fry is tweeting to ask people to sign up for the following:

Hours to stop Uganda’s gay death penalty. The Ugandan Parliament is set to pass a brutal law that could carry the death penalty for homosexuality. If they do, thousands of Ugandans could face execution — just for being gay.

In response to this he got the following tweet:

RK ‏@sherbetdab66
@stephenfry The whole #rangersfamily will sign it if you retweet http://epetitions.direct.gov.uk/petitions/42143 please.
Retweeted by Stephen Fry

Which is a e-petition for the following:

HMRC confidential info leak

Responsible department: Her Majesty’s Treasury

We the undersigned request that questions from the government are asked of HMRC over their handling of the ” investigation” into Rangers Football Club.

Over the last three years, HMRC have pursued Rangers Football Club for ” unpaid” taxes in relation to several EBT schemes operated by the club. These schemes were present in all of the clubs annual accounts for the years in which they operated.

The conclusion on the three year investigation was found on 20/11/12 stating that Rangers Football Club were indeed not liable nor had broken any law.

Throughout this ” investigation” there have been several leaks of confidential information relating directly to sensitive information about the club, the employees and the current state of play within the ” investigation”.

The source of this leak must be identified and dealt with accordingly due to the serious breach of protocols and completely undermining the role in which HMRC are charged facilitating.

Okay I am way out of my depth with all of this stuff. However can I ask you clever lot a question?

Who gave authority for the trust to pay the loan to a particular player and authorise the amount of that loan. Surely there was not an open ended agreement that any player could ask for any number of loans and for any amount. Would there not be someone at RFC(IL) who would have to authorise and monitor each application and amount?

Or am I wide of the mark?

Scottish FA statement / Mr Dave King
Tuesday, 19 May

“In considering the request, the Board of the Scottish FA has sought and received specialist independent legal advice, both in Scotland and South Africa”

Was it LNS they asked for legal advice?

Do not know how true it is or posters reliability.

Self certified yet in contradiction to Article 10.2 (j) of the SFA articles? We have a meeting on Friday to confirm that we are one of 3 clubs who will submit a complaint to the SFA. The grounds of the complaint are based upon his directorship of the BoD of RFC from 2007 onwards when that Club used tax evasion measures which brought Scottish football into serious disrepute and ultimately led to the liquidiation of a very prominent member of the SFA. As a Director, he would be party to and complicit in the tax evasion. He did not take any actions to stop or inform authorities of the act.

Raith and Alloa will make the complaint formally next week. Our biggies tell us that more will be co-signatories. It was funny……a rabid Rangers bigot predicted it would be Celtic, Dundee united & Hibs the three instigators! More his sad way of thinking than reality!!!

Spot the difference?
just seen this on twitter. If true does that mean they still have to pay the two hotels some money?

Understand that the custom and practice of City law means that meetings at Millennium Gloucester and Grange Tower Bridge hotels will…

.still have to be called. They will immediately by adjourned. The custom of it means there has to be time to physically travel from…

…one venue to the other before the next meeting can be opened, which is why the MG meeting was 10am and GTB was at noon. Also why…
..March 4 might be viewed as too soon for the Ibrox date
