They are getting rather excited on Kerrydale Street.

New company registered today at Companies House-

GLASGOW RANGERS FOOTBALL CLUB LTD. They think Whyte ready to scuttle HUNS mark 1 and try a relaunch.


Personally, I think its just some wide boy grabbing the name to sell to the Huns if the BIG Tax case goes badly. :thumbsup:

I posted this on another thread in here last week that Whyte wants to re-brand Rangers and call them Glasgow Rangers Football Club.

If that happens will that mean Rangers will start with zero history? Like Airdre. Yes the history of what they did until then would still be there but any cups won after would start as 1.

Some people on pieandbovril talking about this. A new company called Glasgow Rangers Ltd. Registered with Companies House in England, this very day.

If they were to fold and come back under another name, how does this work ?

Can they still claim to be established in 18canteen?
Can they still have 5 stars symbolising 50 league titles?
Can the players walk away if they go into administration?

I'm still a bit confused about all of this, it seems a little simple to change your name and everything just goes away :confused:

I'm not sure how this works when Scottish companies, operating solely in Scotland have to be registered in Scotland. Scots law and all that.

It looks dodgy, as the nature of the business is 'none supplied'. Hmm.

Anyway, when do we get the sequel, 'Rangers - The Demise'? :na na:

I was strangely reading a few newspaper articles when looking for information about teams that have not paid their players. Hearts keep the illustrious company of Portsmouth, Plymouth Argyle and Gretna as being UK teams which recently have not paid their players.

Anyhow, there was a section in one article talking about the penalty for going into admin. Motherwell went into administration, as did Dundee and Livingston and were not given any points deduction. Gretna were docked 10 points, relegated then demoted to the 3rd because there was a risk they could not fulfil their fixtures. Livingston were demoted to the 3rd because they breached the SFL's rules on insolvency.

So, expect nothing.

Didn't Motherwell do it before those penalties were brought in though, which was mainly a reaction to Leicester going in to administration and then romping to the Championship title (I'm sure our resident Foxes will correct me if I'm wrong on that!)

Yes, possibly. Gretna went into administration after Motherwell and were docked 10 points, so perhaps the precedent has been set by the Gretna situation?

I don't have time to write a full reply right now but that is not how it works. For example, the current holding company of Rangers is registered in England.

Surely there is a difference between a club going defunct and a "different" party buying the assets of the company (the football club and stadium) out of administration.

But surely the licence to be in the league can't just be bought, which is the key factor.

They will need to liquidate Rangers FC with all of its debt, with new companies getting hold of the assets etc. But presumably the licence would remain with Rangers FC along with the debt, as that is part of that legal identity. Any new Glasgow Rangers would be something else, and I don't see how they could get away with claiming the right to take old Rangers place without taking on its debts too.

Dundee and Motherwell paid their creditors (including HMRC) back something like 6p - 10p in the pound.

Rangers biggest creditor now is Craig Whyte. He'll own them lock stock and barrell regardless. Even if they went to the wall he would get first dibs on Ibrox and Murray Park but that won't happen.

What he may be doing is positioning them to split the football operating side off and then dump the potential toxic debt from the tax case and any other debts he has underwritten to a shell company. None of that would affect Rangers League status with the SPL or SFA.

Rangers won't go bust.
The creditors will undoubtedly get stiffed and probably have to accept what's coming.

A new company called Airdrie United bought Clydebank FC, and renamed the club but retained the Bankies league membership. This could be a vehicle for doing just that.

This new company is registered in Cressex Business Park, High Wycombe. That's a run-of the mill business estate. I don't know it very well, but I think there's at least one block of serviced offices there. I'm not aware of any permanent solicitors or accountants offices though.

My knowledge is of American Chapter 11 rather than British insolvency law so I may be completely wrong.

What I was suggesting is that "Glasgow Rangers" would buy "Rangers Football Club P.L.C" (the club) from "Rangers FC Group Limited" (holding company Whyte created) which would enter administration. The licence is held by the club and not the holding company. Didn't Whyte clear the club's debt and assume the tax liability? Presumably the debt would now rest with the holding company and not the club. Could you do the same with the tax liability?

If HMRC win their case they will become the biggest creditor. Whyte's first dibs on Ibrox/Murray park would only extend to the £18m debt he took on as part of the takeover arrangement and the rest would be available for distribution to other creditors - if they sell the properties. Whyte himself has acknowledged the possibility of Rangers going 'bust' but their real problem could be exiting administration if they go down that route.

What Whyte did was pay off the bank debt and transfer the debt to the holding company - effectively, the holding company lent the club the money to pay off that debt, the loan I think being secured on Ibrox. There was an undertaking that the debt to the holding company would then be written off in the absence of an 'insolvency event' within a set time period (which I thought had already expired). The major tax liability has still not been agreed or determined and until that happens it can only rest with the club - this was the insolvency event being referred to in purchase offer.

It partly depends on the attitude of HMRC. Dundee were only able to escape administration this time because HMRC (who took a hostile attitude to them) were less than 25% of the creditors.

If the big tax case goes against Rangers then HMRC would have an effective veto on any attempt to fob off creditors with a few pence in the £.

I think the HMRC have a catch all rule that any Company re-arrangement must be for legitimate business purposes not just Tax saving purposes or the Tax-Man can have it set aside.

:agree: A CVA (the normal exit route out of administration) needs the agreement of 75% in value of the affected creditors. If HMRC win their case they will represent a helluva a lot more than 25% of the debt. If a company can't exit administration the only alternative is to wind up.

Could be an Airdrie scenario preparation or as he is the majority shareholder, he may simply be looking to move Rangers away from being a plc company.

If he settles with HMRC, clears their debt removing bank's intervention and moves to Ltd he will be in complete control of the club with no-one to answer to.

Apparently on Celtc sites someone is saying that it's a wind-up (pun intended :wink:) - presumably there's nothing to stop you registering the companies in any name, then getting that name on to professional networking sites saying you work at PWC.

I can categorically confirm that Gerard Moran doesn't work for PwC

I'm certainly not privy to anymore info than what's available to anyone else online. In fact the connection has already been made on Celtic forums, Pieandbovril etc etc. All of whom could in all likelhood be talking nonsense. Check the following though. Whoever the Gerard Moran in question may be in connection with the 2 recently registered companies, it's certainly interesting.

Again, nowt that isn't already out there elsewhere. Interesting though?

I reckon that we and fans from every other club should come together and patent all the possible "sensible" names that they could possibly change their name to. :wink:

I reckon the fans from every other club should clean B+Q out of sledge hammers, picks etc and helpfully assist the bulldozers at Ibrox when doomsday comes.:faf:

We can hope.
