    Hmmmmm, that's them as good as got off with it on appeal. Transfer embargo removed and probably increase the fine and add it to CVA pot.
    "It is the sheer lack of any commercial sense to this ruling that has shocked us," a source close to the club's emergency regime told the BBC.
    "It is a bit like a court telling the administrator of an engineering company that they can survive but they're not allowed to trade any stock."

    Critically, he's forgetting that in that analogy, it would be an engineering company guilty of tax evasion and cheating on a rampant scale.

    This attitude of, oh, it wisnae us, don't punish us, is an utter nonsense. They must carry the can.

    Has it not occurred to those cheats and their media mouthpieces that 4 football clubs going to be screwed by Rangers dealings in the transfer market.

    Wallace, Goin, Boccanegra and Jelavic will all have been purchased by the Huns with no hope of them ever being paid for. That is why a transfer embargo is justified but the BBC HUN cheerleaders will never see it that way.

    "The source said the transfer ban would make it almost impossible for Rangers to field a competitive team next season, and that could have a serious impact on gate receipts and sponsorship revenues.
    It would also seriously hinder Rangers' chances of the early return to European competition that they so badly need to balance their books."

    This is the bit that annoyed me the most. Its almost as if there is a god given right for them to be in Europe!?

    Who cares about their chances of fielding a competitive team, they have cheated scottish football and other businesses alike. I am sure they wont be crying about rangers battling it out in the bottom 6?

    I'll be sure to break out my teeny tiny violin for them.

    So the admins are apparently still basing their business plan for the club on European football are they? Clearly nobody at Ibrox has learned a damn thing!

    It's time HMRC got their own guys in there!

    Don't do walking away? Funny that, Ibrox is half empty after 80 minutes even when they're winning...

    They'd soon be wishing they could walk away at the very least if they chained themselves to turnstiles at Hampden. Have they no idea what would happen to them with 30,000 Hibees descending on the area...

    So, the SFA have done all they could do in the circumstances and handed down maximum penalties. Actually I think this is smoke and mirrors. The SFA must be walking the thinnest of tight ropes right now between trying to look after their beloved and perceived cash-cow, Rangers but on the other hand they have Fans Groups, UEFA and FIFA breathing down their necks. So they have created the smoke screen by issuing the maximum fine and banning transfers.

    The authorities are also under enormous pressure from fans groups and the very excellent Fans Survey. So they can now argue that Rangers have been punished more than enough so would the fans mind terribly taking a more lenient view and stop minding if a Newco is allowed straight in to the top flight. I want to see how this mess pans out before I get all euphoric about the SFA having grown a set.
    This is how I (cynically) interpret this latest news.

    These tough sanctions give the authorities greater leeway now to allow a Rangers newco back into the SPL.

    Cal me a cynic but a cab rank system made up of ex officials, administrators, ex managers and former players does not inspire faith in me that Rangers will be punished like it has been by an independant panel. The 'establishment' does still exist.

  12. #5651
    I think the appeal panel will be Walter Smith, Hugh Dallas & Derek Johnstone

    I'm not sure who was on the committee that handed out this punishment, but I do know that Lord Nimmo Smith was on it, who else? just out of interest!! ....

    They (sfa & spl) don't normally like to criticise their own procedures so it will be interesting to see what happens now with "the circus"

    The appeal hearing should not just listen to Duff and Duffer's pleadings for soft treatment for the Huns. The football clubs who have been ripped off by Rangers should have their say too.

    Give Vlad a platform and maybe the embargo could be increased to 2 years.

    Also is it not these creditors that should be Duff and Phelps main concern not how good a team Rangers will be a year down the line.

    I am sure that the team that Rangers could put out would be more than competitive in Division Three of the SFL.

    It's quite frightening reading how Rangers fans see the club as untouchable and beyond reproach.
    They are due £135m in amongst that is football debts, PAYE and VAT. Their owner disregards previous SFA instruction. The administrators say that somehow, dispite the debts, they MUST be able to buy players.

    I'm all for a hun to be padlocked at every turnstyle, that would be fun.
    This could catch on. Something to kick on the way into the ground. Better still handcuff them to the toilets. Something to wipe your *rse on. Would save Hibs a fortune in bog roll. The 'tache would approve I'm sure.
