It appears that Glasgow Rangers by paying players and Managers through employment trusts avoided tax and national insurance payments. The club argue that this gave them no sporting advantage, bullshit.
Of course it must have when you think of the players they signed during this period. Would these players have signed if they were paying the same as the rest of us in tax and national insurance? Me thinks not.
Some fans are calling for the honours they won during this time to be declared void or awarded to the runners up, I have some sympathy for that. I am no fan of the Old Firm, they have done nothing for Scottish Football for years, since they forced the rule change on shared gate money the game in Scotland has just gotten worse.
Glasgow Rangers themselves are a disgusting club with traditions that are a stain on Scottish Football, their association through some of their suppprters with the Orange Order and disgusting sectarian songs brings shame on the game, as does the failure of the Scottish Football Association to act. Murdo ‘the Queens 11’ Fraser Tory MSP is a Rangers fan , says it all really.
What will happen, I suspect nothing will happen. The SFA are about as much use as a chocolate teapot, they have adminstered the demise of the game in Scotland along with clubs too afraid to stand up to the big two. Personally I would love for Celtic and Rangers to move to another league but who wants to import that hate into their own leagues. The SFA should strip Rangers of the honours they won during this period in question but they won’t, they don’t have the balls.
