have been thrown out of the Challenge Cup for using two loan players for 10 minutes of their SPFL Trust Cup win over Colts.

The irony of the decision is incredible with Sevco- the Tribute Act to the old club that cheated Scottish football for over a decade- robbing The Honest Men of what should be their only national trophy win in the 2002 League Cup Final.

Alex McLeish led the way with a secondary contract that wasn’t declared to the SPL, SFA or HMRC. Among the goals in a 4-0 win were Tore Andre Flo and Barry Ferguson, at the other end Stefan Klos had left for the benefits of disguised remuneration.

Ayr won last week’ cup tie 3-0 but the record books will record it as a 3-0 defeat with Alloan hosting the Ibrox Colts in the next round.

For over a decade of cheating every club in the country the Tribute Act paid a fine of £250,000 while the dead club had raked in millions from prize money and European participation.

The SPFL hasn’t taken any action against for refusing to show branding for SPFL sponsors in the first six fixtures of the season.

McLeish’ EBT Cup winners: Klos, Vidmar, Amoruso, Konterman, Ricksen, Latapy, Ferguson, Numan, Caniggia, Flo, Lovenkrands. Subs: McCann, Hughes, Dodds, Kanchelskis, McGregor

    Rangers won 5 league titles, 4 Scottish Cups and 4 League cups, while fielding EBT players, 5 league titles that Celtic should have won by fielding legal players.
    Marseille was stripped of their titles for bribery, Lance Armstrong for doping, but the biggest cheats in football played with Employee Benefit Trust players. Graeme Sounes received a £30 thousand EBT – 10 years after he left Rangers.
    Murray admitted later in court that by paying EBTs his club signed players that they otherwise could not afford. The LNS commission fined Rangers £250,000 that they still have not paid. In the later trials, Lord Drummond Young stated that if they hadn’t used the EBT scheme, players would have gone elsewhere. Cheating is endemic in Scottish football and one club has cheated the other clubs massively, Rangers FC – The cheating club.

    It’s worth noting that, at that time the rangers keeper, Klos, was earning more money than Zinidan Zidan.

    Convenient memory. Seem to remember Celtic twice being reinstated to European competitions in recent years for similar reasons.
    Remember Sion of Switzerland and Legia Warsaw?
    Of course not. Hypocrites only remember what suits them .
