|Does exactly what it says on the tin - the forum for football-related discussion.
So, a club that was so skint a year ago , unable to pay local catering firms and travel agents , along with HMRC , has property assets valued at £79.2m .
Is it any wonder HMRC take a dim view on football ?
Also, note of the money they are seeking to raise, £4.5m of it is for land aquisitions adjacent to Ibrox .
Here comes the real plan.......a casino .
Which they apparently acquired for the grand total of £1million IIRC. Also IIRC correctly the point was made that selling off assets at a massive discount to their market value when a company is in duress at the expense of the creditors losing out is illegal. I wonder if anyone will be revisiting this episode?
Rangers should leave Scottish football if restructuring goes ahead (BBC)
They do love playing the oppressed victim, don't they?
So there isn't an option but they're going to look for one anyway? That's just brilliant.
I'm going to apply that very same principle to my kitchen. I know that there are no Fray Bentos steak and kidney pies in my cupboard (I've eaten them all) but I'm going to defy reason and logic and have a look in my cupboard for one anyway. I'll keep you updated.
"In what league do you win a division and then end up playing the same teams again the following season? There is no meaning to it, in reality."
Erm try the SPL. You helmet.
Perhaps the Welsh league will have you.
Astonishing rant on their website:
Dignity is not something that appears to come easily to them.
They're a bit fed up because they'd been led to believe by their friends in the SFA/SPL that with a reconstruction that they would get back to the top quicker - the proposal at the moment means it will still take another 2 seasons at best.
They also stated in their share offering prospectus:
This link on the official site is interesting, specifically, a certain paragraph:
http://www.rangers.co.uk/news/headlines ... laim-boost
Quote: "“We have this slight anomaly where for a period newco were not members of the SFA from June 14 until being granted membership on August 3."
This then begs the question: who did Brechin play in the Ramsdens Cup??
According to that, they fielded 11 (plus subs) illegally registered players since they were not members of the SFA, SFL and/or SPL.
It seems to me that, based on what is quoted above, if you get a group of blokes together, call yourself a team, you can play in the Ramsdens cup!!!!
They were given a temporary license.
And Wembley: Trust me when I say there is nobody at Rangers who either expects or wants to be fast-tracked into a higher division.
Other fans love to claim they do, because it doesn't sit well that Rangers are perfectly content to work their way up through the normal system.
I mean, it's far easier to think Rangers are desperate, right ?
Btw, hilarious what kind of a shitstorm Green has caused by his comments.
Seems like it's perfectly fine for one club to want out of Scotland, but when Rangers mention it it's different ?
Everyone knows it won't happen, Green said so literally but that doesn't seem to matter to some.
I would agree that Green could do with a bit more restraint in his comments, but for almost 20-30 years Rangers had nobody to stand up when the media took the usual shots at the club, now there's a Yorkshireman who doesn't hold back and it seems like some people have issues with it

Rangers aside, all the reshuffling proposed and that has gone on in the past makes not a jot of difference. The same teams, same number of people willing to watch substandard football which at the pinnacle will only ever be won by 1 of 2 teams. Rearranging the deck chairs on the Titanic springs to mind.
why not add the EPL, bundesliga, serie A or any other top division in a country, surely you knew that he meant win a lower division, no?
When I read it that's what I assumed right away too.
Surely all Rangers have to do if they want to join a different league is quote Berwick Rangers as a precedent.
An English team playing in a Scottish League would seem to negate any objection FIFA may have.
Berwick played in Scotland because they weren't allowed into the English league, they had no choice.
English clubs have already said they are opposed to the idea.
Plus Cardiff, Swansea and Wrexham playing in the English league despite being registered with the Welsh FA.
I'm still surprised that when Rangers were reformed and told they would have to start again at the bottom of the SFL they didn't try harder to get into the bottom of the English league system.
IIRC Ireland has laid claim to Rockall, so they could play in the League of Ireland.
