The Rangers Tax Case has returned in blog format.
The award winning blog led the way revealing various details of the ongoing case during the early part of the decade as the troubles of the football club became apparent.
Despite some baffling decisions along the way in July 2017 the Supreme Court in London ruled that the Income Tax and National Insurance was due on payments made to players, back-room staff and directors which the club had claimed was made through Employment Benefit Trusts.
In a new article Rangers Tax Case looks at the EBT payments made to Graeme Souness and Walter Smith after both men had left the club, in Souness’ case more than a decade after leaving Ibrox.
Around the time that the Trusts were set up Rangers (IL) sold Tugay to Blackburn and bought Michael Ball from Everton.
The return of RTC will cause further embarrassment to the SFA and SPFL as they attempt to move on with no retrospective punishments being handed out for over a decade of cheating.
The crux of the issue is that payments to players were not registered with the SFA and SPL which made them ineligible for the matches that they played in.
Other similar incidents have resulted in 0-3 results being awarded against clubs fielding ineligible players.
It’s believed that a Judicial Review is underway examining how the SFA, SPL and SPFL have operated since awarding Rangers (IL) a licence to play in 2011/12 UEFA competitions.
