Poor R*ngers Theads Merged.....

Recommended Posts

Read a letter in The Record this morning that The Drovers Hotel is in danger of being closed down due to monies owed to HMRC.The writer suggested changing the name to Glasgow R*ng*rs Drovers Hotel and they'll be able to stay open for years to come.

What, the one in Inverarnan?!?!

Popular bikers stop-off, the Drovers.

Always seemed a bit out the way in terms of attracting reliable custom, but the odd time I've been in there, it's a decent place for a quick drop-in.

Sorry....off topic.

Are they dead yet?!?!

They get a lot of business from the campsite across the river, popular with hillwalkers too, a real shame if it goes :(

Aye.

Is that The Drovers on the left-bank of upper Loch Lomond with the double-headed stuffed sheep and stuffed Bear (very apt) in the entrance hall?

If it is, its great place. You can have the history as a starter, atmosphere as a main course and have the ambience (Sp?) as a dessert!

CVA to be accepted but with a string of conditions!

I was told this morning by a taxi man who does the airport that main creditors are prepared to accept the CVA but that they will impose a load of conditions to maximise the return for creditors. He heard them talking about it in his cab.

A deal will be done and we're out of admin but if we don't deliver to creditors we're back in Admin again in 3 months.

Best news I heard since we won in the Court of Session last week.

Saved at the last minute . I knew it would work out ok in the end.

Happy days

Shull your a very naughty man

I may well be naughty but i'm not an Airport Cabbie.

Even i widnae have the brassneck to charge a couple SIXTEEN f**kIN QUID to go from the Airport to the Southern General Hospital which happened last week.

I took the couple back to the Airport and the fare metered at an acceptable £7.40.

For me the most significant revelation in this whole saga for quite a while is the fact that Duff and Duffer had been usurped as liquidators and BDO put in their place by HMRC.

I think this would mean that Green would not have carte blanche to take Rangers fixed assets for a pittance and that the grounds may be sold off to maxaimise the return for the creditors. This may raise enough to pay those owed as much as 90 pence in the pound. A big difference to the 2, 3 or up to 8% the CVA was destined to return.

I also suspect that more revealing facts as to the relationships between Green&Whyte and Duff&Phelps is set to come to light.

I do hope Whyte's sentences run concurrently as he has been so good to us!punk.gif

Yeah this was fabulous news.

Also Utd's Thomson today talking about chairmens positions hardening because of the lack of any remorse was great to hear.

All in all it's been a great day.

King has also lodged a £20Million creditors claim with D&P. Could this be some of the TBCs starting to throw their hat into the ring. King is as big a scoundrel as the rest of this rogues involved in this.

I'm not an expert on administration/liquidation but I was wondering why HMRC would nominate their preferred liquidator when the vote on the CVA is a week away.It may be normal practise but I'd have thought, as one of the main creditors they were positioning themselves for a no vote. Maybe some accountant would know better ?

There are 2 main creditors who can block this with their own share of the vote, what are the chances of having people from Ticketus and HMRC together in a cab discussing how they will vote ? With HMRC in particular and how the civil service works, it would need to go to meeting after meeting before a decision is made.

This coul dwell have been a sellik supporting taxi driver at the wind up.

Was the case not due to be heard by the appeal panel again today ?

I thought they were meeting to impliment new sanctions today ? Of course Rangers will decide if they are suitable as usual but if not today when is new date ?

Didn't the court give rongers and the SFA 3 weeks to decide whether to appeal ?

Besides it look slike Charlie might decide to accept the signing ban http://local.stv.tv/glasgow/105425-rangers-crisis-green-cannot-rule-out-accepting-sfa-signing-ban/

and he could be starting to pave the way with the fans for a newco http://www.bbc.co.uk/sport/0/football/18373399

but at least one chairman has stated this could be difficult for them http://www.bbc.co.uk/sport/0/football/18365480

It seems that the new CEO of Rangers, (his words, not mine), is already displaying the Rangers' mentality in thinking that they are above the law and can influence the taxman,

Green has urged fans to exert political pressure to ensure the tax authority accepts the reduced payments on offer.

"Fans should be urging their politicians to apply some pressure so that the CVA is accepted," he said.

And so the arrogance continues.

What a kicking that Aberdeen guy gave scumgers on Radio Scotland today. I guess we know which way they'll be voting on newco. By the way he reckoned that only 300 cancelled season tickets was equal to the value of rongers in the SPL..

Heard a wee bit of an interview with Dave King as well...he's dodgy as well; however he was pretty much spot on regarding Green being up to exactly the same nonsense as Whyte. Thompson of the arabs interview was also on sinking the boot in.

Apparently under SPL rules scumgers will be able to sign players before being out of administration. Looks like wee Gatusso could get his wish this month. However, it does look like the BBC are being a wee bit naught when you read the article.

Yeh , I listened to that. To me it sounds like Green wont make a blind bit of difference , no more than Whyte , at any rate. Sounded like King is pissed off with the situation but he did make it clear that only someone with substantial backing could save derHun now. .

I think we will see on Thursday that the current bid will be rejected by either HMRC or both parties. .

I still think that the 3rd division is their only hope , if they are lucky. .

If I was a creditor , I would be saying "Hang on a minute , if you reckon you have £10m guaranteed & claim another £20m is on its way , then throw that into the pot to pay us back"

Seems they are operating as normal regardless of what is going on around them. The CVA looks like it`ll be approved according to them , they are in talks about players/budgets , they do NOT fear the SPL or SFA - Rangers are deciding their own fate/punishment , business as usual according to them.

Beggars belief !
