  1. MEDALS won by Rangers stars for winning the league have been seized under a court order. The badges, worth almost £20,000, were grabbed by agents acting for the club's former finance director Donald McIntyre. He recently won a legal bid to freeze £300,000 of the Gers' assets as part of a breach of contract case. Agents for McIntyre had targeted possible revenue from the Scottish Premier League owed to the club for television rights. No TV funds are due at present but they uncovered the title medals in a box at the SPL's offices. McIntyre was unaware of the move. He is und
  2. Published on Sunday 23 October 2011 00:12 In the wake of the BBCâ??s documentary about him, and his extraordinary response in yesterdayâ??s The Scotsman, what have we learned about the Rangers chairman? IMAGINE for a second if Sir David Murray had listened when Alastair â??No Surrenderâ? Johnston had asked him to put the brakes on the deal to sell Rangers to Craig Whyte. Imagine if Murray withdrew from the negotiations and kept hold of the club himself, allowing Whyte to walk away and resume the life of privacy he so obviously desires. What then? Johnston wanted the Whyte deal

  4. The ownership of Rangers by Craig Whyte is entering a crucial phase as the tax tribunal approaches The key passage in the story of Craig Whyte and Rangers will happen in the not too distant future. That much is certain, after yet another week in which the Ibrox club found themselves courting front as well as back pages of newspapers. The occasionally warped situation where football fans have more of an interest in directors and balance sheets than full-backs and strikers has one positive offshoot. That is, scrutiny of those purchasing clubs should limit the potential for ruinous scenar
  5. Rangers manager Ally McCoist insists he is content with his working relationship with Craig Whyte. Club owner Whyte has said he will take legal action over a BBC Scotland documentary which carried allegations of criminality in his past dealings. And McCoist said: "He's been great, absolutely smashing. I spoke to him this morning as I always do. "We are both in total agreement that the most important thing that we have to focus on is Sunday's game." Scottish Premier League leaders Rangers visit Hearts with a seven-point advantage over second-placed Motherwell. Continue reading
  6. RANGERS may face another legal fight if they try to boot the BBC out of Ibrox. The footy giants â?? already mired in legal battles with ex-directors and the taxman â?? could be sued by the Beeb if club supremo Craig Whyte carries out his vow to banish the broadcaster. We told yesterday how the Gers owner snapped over a documentary â?? due to be screened tonight â?? he insists is "muckraking". But the corporation's deal with the SPL means the BBC must have access to every ground in the SPL as well as key interviews. And last night Beeb insiders say the broadcaster WILL take lega
  7. I guess we all knew, but reading this brings a tear to the eye. http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-scotland-glasgow-west-15041278 A judge who froze £480,000 of Rangers assets has said the club's new owner recognises it could go under if it loses a disputed £49m tax claim. The detail emerged in a published opinion from judge Lord Hodge, who is hearing former chief executive Martin Bain's case for unfair dismissal. The judge said the takeover deal for Rangers had been structured to protect the new owner if the tax case was lost. He said this was "an appreciation...of a risk of in
  8. Bosses at Rangers face further financial turmoil after it emerged one of Scotlandâ��s top law firms is suing the football club over unpaid legal bills. Initial court proceedings have already taken place between the Ibrox club and Glasgow-based Levy & McRae over a bill understood to be around �£35,000 and dating from earlier this year. The bill was for advice given to Rangers on how to handle the Uefa investigation into sectarian singing at Europa Cup games against Dutch side PSV Eindhoven. Rangers were fined �£35,652 by Uefa in March and its fans banned from the next a
  9. FORMER Rangers chief executive Martin Bain is being sued by the Ibrox club over claims he drew an "excessive" amount if cash from them. Bain is taking the SPL giant to court over his departure following venture capitalist Craig Whyte's takeover. But during a preliminary hearing at the Court of Session in Edinburgh yesterday Rangers' lawyer Gavin MacColl said the club wanted to lodge a counterclaim. Mr MacColl said the club felt Mr Bain "breached" the terms of his duties and that "manifested itself in Mr Bain drawing excessive monies from the company". He added: "The counterclai

    There can be no doubt that the Rangers fans have been greatly affected by the government severe austerity measures. To their credit,in spite of hardship, the fans have shown fantastic support to the club and team during the season just gone and ticket sales are up on last year in anticipation of the new management regime / team restructure. What a pity two individuals, motivated by utter greed have thrown our loyalty back in our faces. Martin Bain is currently on suspension partly due to awarding himself a pay rise of 35% or well in excess of �£130k. This is a disgusting scenario, particular

  12. ALI RUSSELL took the fast track to success under F1 boss Bernie Ecclestone at QPR. Now Russell wants to put the REAL Rangers in pole position for global expansion. New Gers owner Craig Whyte has made the ex-Hearts whizzkid his Chief Operating Officer at Ibrox. He'll chase off-field success while Ally McCoist goes for glory on the park. Russell, 39, says the lessons learned under billionaire Bernie will be crucial in moving the SPL champions into top gear. The man who will replace outgoing chief executive Martin Bain said: "I very much learned the Formula 1 model on football

An Ibrox insider confirmed some of the alleged irregularities were financial, but said this was not the main or sole thrust of an inquiry that is now under way at the Glasgow cl
  14. Branding the tax case website crap is nice to see. Also saying the right things for me currently.
  15. STRICKEN Aberdeen keeper Jamie Langfield last night got the news he desperately wanted - that he CAN resume his career. But it will be October at the earliest before he'll pull on a first-team jersey again. And that means boss Craig Brown faces a pre-season search for TWO keepers. Langfield suffered a brain seizure a fortnight ago and was rushed to a Glasgow hospital. The 31-year-old - who signed a one-year contract extension at the end of last season - was released after a few days. But amid fears his career could be over Langfield travelled south for the crucial check-up
  16. After some much needed R&R in the Lake District (minimal mobile reception and no wireless internet was bliss after a season like no other before), I was hoping to come back from holiday to good news. Yet, instead of answers to the simple questions we asked of our new owner last month, instead the club's ongoing situation appears more like an episode of 'Lost' than the beginning of a bright, transparent future. First, I find out of the few remaining board directors we do have, two have been suspended - Martin Bain and Donald McIntyre for alleged 'irregularities'. Next, we're told two
  17. CRAIG WHYTE, Rangersââ?¬â?¢ new majority shareholder, has responded bullishly to the demands made by deposed chairman Alastair Johnston that he must ââ?¬Å?walk the walk and not just ââ?¬Å?talk the talkââ?¬Â by reiterating his financial commitment to the club. Johnston, axed on Monday night along with director Paul Murray after the pair refused to resign, had called on supporters to ââ?¬Å?remain vigilant and continue to exert pressure on Mr Whyte to support the club financially as he has publically committed to doââ?¬Â. In a statement yesterday on the clubââ?¬â?¢s website, howe
  18. With Martin Bain now suspended and highly likely to be departing as our CEO we have to wonder who will take charge of player contract renewals and our dealings in the transfer market. Given that it's a suspension can we assume that these matters are now indefinitely on hold until the CEO's position is resolved?
  19. BITTER acrimony broke out at Rangers yesterday as the new regime dismantled the old board with the removal of the chairman and a director, and the suspension of the chief executive and another director. Alastair Johnston, who has openly questioned new owner Craig Whyte's plans for the club, was ousted after delaying his departure, and last night he responded by warning Whyte he will watch the venture capitalist's every step from now on, and challenged the new owner to "walk the walk and not just talk the talk". On a day of major ructions at Ibrox, it has emerged that chief executive Marti
  20. New Rangers owner Craig Whyte is set to take a major hands-on role in the running of the Ibrox club ââ?¬â?? by succeeding Alastair Johnston as chairman. Johnston is set to stand down this week after successfully overseeing what has been a turbulent period in the Glasgow clubââ?¬â?¢s history. And, in a significant development for the Scottish champions, it appears Whyte is poised to assume his responsibilities. The multi-millionaire businessman kept a low profile during his take-over of his boyhood heroes and had been widely expected to take a back seat in the day-to-day running o
  21. From STV New Rangers owner Craig Whyte has promised to build on the success of departing manager Walter Smith. Whyte, who completed his protracted takeover of the Scottish champions last week, said: "It is a great privilege to be part of Rangers and while we celebrate this title and our success in the League Cup our thoughts will turn quickly to building on this success." Whyte paid tribute to Smith and assistant Ally McCoist, who will take over from his mentor next season. "Today's title win is a truly great achievement by a club whose hallmark has been success throughout its

  23. Rangers chief executive Martin Bain has again expressed concerns about the Football Against Racism in Europe (FARE) organisation, accusing the group of being influenced by those intent on damaging the club. Bain spoke out after the Scottish champions were fined a total of 80,000 euros (�£71,200) and their fans were banned from the club's next away match in Europe. The UEFA charges related to discriminatory behaviour by Rangers supporters during both legs of the Europa League tie against PSV Eindhoven last month. Rangers were fined an equal amount for both offences and handed a su
  24. Published Date: 28 April 2011 By Stephen Halliday RANGERS are bracing themselves for the verdict of Uefa's Control and Disciplinary Body today when it rules on two charges of "discriminatory behaviour" by supporters of the Scottish champions. The Ibrox club were reported to Uefa by independent organisation Football Against Racism in Europe (FARE) for alleged sectarian chanting by fans at both legs of their Europa League round of 16 tie against PSV Eindhoven in March. Rangers are vigorously defending the charges, although they are not entitled to appear at the hearing, which will take pl
