Which is what some of their players will be doing soon enough ;)

I owed the Revenue 3 grand, about 8 years ago due to an accounting mix up. It was my fault and I was under investigation for 5 years. Ended up paying 4.5 G in fines and interest.

I feel sorry for Rangers fans, but WTF are HMCR doing to allow this situation.

If they spent less time going after the little guy...etc etc

On a side note, sections of their support were back to singing their sectarian bile yesterday, and this is why the average fan in Scotland would happily see either of the Old Firm go to the wall.

Also just read a pound coin was thrown on the pitch, police won't be taking action however as they think it was a genuine take over bid.

You sound like my ex mate..

It's all a Celtic/Papist conspiracy....

Fkcuing man up........you're plain ***** but you won't admit it..

I can't tell you how many countless hours I had to listen to my mate telling me everything wrong with the world was a tim conspiracy or how Rangers were cheated..Like no one else has ever had a bad decision go against them

And then the entire night prior to an old firm game some twat on youtube posted anti Celtic songs and he sang along with them hour upon hour upon hour....and had the balls to tell me I knew fcku all about fitba......



Eh ?
You didn't see the game did you ?
2 perfectly good goals chopped off, Papac gets a red card for lunging into a tackle while a Kilmarnock player gets a yellow for a two-footed tackled, studs showing.

That has **** all to do with a Celtic/Papist conspiracy.
If you knew anything about it you'd know that if there was one club who has, over the past few years, claimed there was a conspiracy against them by the SFA/SPL/referees,... it would be Celtic (just take a look at the disgraceful treatment of referees last year, every decision they made against Celtic was looked at under a microscope and if they didn't like it they went into a huff).
To prove it, read this:

But the Celtic fans have carried the firm conviction for 100 years and more that Rangers are the 'Establishment' club in Scotland - and now they're getting evidence to support their claim.

First Minister Alex Salmond has got his tartan trews in a twist while making clumsy tackles all over the place regarding Rangers' insolvency event.

First he had to apologise to Celtic for saying they needed Rangers to survive. Then he said Rangers were "part of the fabric of society" in Scotland. Which makes Celtic what, precisely?

Talk about conspiracy theories ?

As for 'sectarian bile', Celtic fans have lost every right to be offended at the use of the word 'fenian' when they started singing 'Paddy McCourt's Fenian Army'.
There was 1 occasion of The Billy Boys, which ended pretty fast, a pure cauldron of anti-Catholic hatred that was...

edit: As for that 17k against Dundee, still 7k more than some league games at Celtic Park last season ;)

I didn't say anything about sectarian bile mate.......

Maybe you're less of a theorist than my ex mate. Countless hours of him telling me that they got cheated by the other half of Glasgow. And if not forming some conspiracy about there being no conspiracy.

And him being half Pakistani, I asked him once "You must have been the subject of a lot of racism in Glasgow, how can you possibly enter into the same hatred of Celtic ?"

"I am not a racist. I am bigot, I'm not a racist."

I did have to laugh at that bit though.

Happens on both sides, there's fans with each club that think the other one has infiltrated the SFA/SPL/...

And then you have the rest of Scottish football who think the same about both Glasgow clubs :lol:

Come on Oust, it's 2012.....the only reason people do anything any more is when the papers make a big deal about it.

What's the point in doing anything unless you can twitter/facebook about it late and show everyone just how cool you are. :wink:

Honestly, the only reason I even bother leaving the house these days is so I've got something to tweet about!

http://news.stv.tv/scotland/west-central/298830-police-passed-dossier-on-rangers-finances-by-administrators/

Police have been passed a dossier by the administrators of Rangers in relation to the club's financial activities.

Strathclyde Police confirmed on Thursday they have received a information from administrators Duff and Phelps.

The force also said they will be consulting the Crown Office about the information handed to them.

As administrators with responsibilities to the court, Duff and Phelps are duty bound to pass any matters of concern raised as they go through the club's books, to the police.

A spokesman said: "We have been passed information from the administrators of Rangers Football Club.

"It is currently being examined and we will be contacting the Crown Office and Procurator Fiscal in due course. It would be inappropriate to comment further at this time."

Motherwell are only three points behind them now. Failure to qualify for the 'Champions' League could be interesting.

They need to be out of administration by 31 March to get a license to play in Europe next year. This is becoming increasing unlikely as more revelations come out.

There is also the possibility of Rangers being deducted more points for fielding players owned by a third-party - allegations their signings last summer were contracted to and paid by the holding company rather than the football club itself.

If they don't meet this regulation, does the 3rd place side automatically take their place?

Yes, assuming they wish to enter European competitions , and assuming they too can convince the licencing body ( which will be the SFA) that they have sufficent funding to last a full season .So if Hearts finished 3rd that may be an issue ........Motherwell are probably ok though .

They would face a qualifying tie which may prve difficult unless it's against Arsenal .

Ooops. Rangers have been fined £50,000 by the Plus Stock Exchange for failing to disclose that its chairman, Craig Whyte, had previously been disqualified from serving as a company director. Can they afford to pay or will the PSE join a long list of creditors?
