Rangers UEFA licence in 2011 still under consideration by SFA

Recommended Posts

The Scottish Football Association will make a decision before the end of the year whether to pursue Rangers in connection with "alleged irregularities" in the Ibrox club's application for a UEFA licence in 2011.

Two years ago, the SFA tasked its compliance officer with launching an investigation into the application

Rangers are understood to have had an unpaid tax liability at the time the application was submitted which, had it been disclosed, would have almost certainly voided the application and Celtic would have competed in the early qualifying rounds of the Champions League rather than their Glasgow rivals.

The Light Blues maintain that the "Five-Way Agreement" signed in 2012 by the SFA, Scottish Premier League, Scottish Football League, the old Rangers and the new club set up by Charles Green means that Scottish football's governing body has no jurisdiction in the matter.

Last July, the Association's judicial panel agreed, and indicated that the case would be referred to the Court of Arbitration for Sport (CAS) in Switzerland, if they decided to punish the club.

SFA chief executive Ian Maxwell told The Times: "I would expect that to come back to the board in the not too distant future.

“It [going to CAS] is still under consideration. We’ll come back on that in due course. I wouldn’t want to put a timescale on it... but I don’t think we would let it go for ever.”

The Scotsman used to be a good paper but the sports section is populated by Rangers hating goons, so it's best ignored.

Do type Scotsman, Celtic, child abuse with Google and it ain't that many hits ...




Counter that with Rangers and tax case ... no interruption of Scotsman articles on the first page.


Or Rangers and SFA, UEFA, license ... and the 4 articles are from the Scotsman.


I said it before: if I were the Rangers media and press guy, I would look at this, draw up a list of journos with agendas, add the respective links to biased articles and decline any Press Accreditation request.

BTW, I would't be surprised if Lawwell wants any money we gained from that CL season, so he can use it to pay of the child abuse penalties (if any).


Obviously, doing so would admit that we are the same club, but ... that would contradict with the journo rubbish regarding new club.

let’s deflect from the big story in Scottish football at the moment eh? 


Looks like Liewell’s minions still dutifully carrying out their tasks


And another’s no-mark,pseudo-journo calling us a ‘new club’ I see.

Why are we not suing the journo and the newspaper? The new club thing has to be stopped.
