On 2nd July, Mr Green made a statement via the Rangers.co.uk website. I blogged about it here.
I have extracted some of that post, which I think is quite relevant.
Mr Green was quoted, on 2nd July, saying the following:-
“People who know me well say I talk too much but in reality the fans are angry here because I haven’t said enough. It’s because I haven’t answered all the questions but over the next seven days, all the questions will be answered.”
By my reckoning, 2 + 7 = 9. Therefore we should have received the promised answers to all the questions.
Maybe I am not looking in the right newspapers…
Maybe I missed his statements on the Rangers official website…
Maybe I missed his exclusive interview on Absolute 80’s radio…
Maybe someone in the media will ask Mr Green what happened to the answers he promised in seven days…
I will repeat the list, with a few additions from the comments last week.
1) Who are his backers?
2) What are his long-term and short-term plans?
3) Why is Sevco Scotland Ltd not selling any season tickets this season by Direct Debit?
4) Did all the major banks turn down Sevco Scotland Ltd as a customer?
5) Does Sevco Scotland Ltd have an overdraft facility with its new bankers, Metro Bank?
6) Is the investment by the backers in the form of loans to be repaid by the company or in the purchase of shares?
7) Have all the “assets and business” of Rangers Football Club PLC been transferred from Sevco 5088 Ltd to Sevco Scotland Ltd?
8) Do Mr Green and his backers have a contingency plan in the event that he does not have a football team playing anywhere next season?
9) Can Sevco Scotland Ltd survive with no income from Scottish football next season, and will they become a “Harlem Globetrotter” team to bring in funds?
10) Did Sevco acquire the rights to receive the balance of transfer fees formerly due to Rangers Football Club PLC, for example the sums due by Everton for Mr Jelavic?
11) Did Sevco acquire the rights of Rangers Football Club PLC to pursue the damages claims against Mr Whyte, Rangers FC Group Ltd and Collyer Bristow?
12) What price was agreed to be paid by Sevco for the fixed assets of Rangers Football Club PLC?
13) Has the full price been paid?
14) Was Mr Green approached by Duff & Phelps, or did he approach them?
15) When did Mr Green first have discussions with Duff & Phelps?
16) What discussions has Mr Green had with the SPL, SFA and SFL since he became involved with the Ibrox team?
17) Will Sevco need to sell players to remain solvent, in the event of its team being in the SPL, SPL2, SFL1, SFL3 or nowhere?
18) Were the former Rangers players told that their contracts of employment were to be transferred under TUPE to Sevco 5088 Ltd, to Sevco Scotland Ltd or simply to “Sevco”?
19) Were the players told who their new employer was to be at all?
20) Does Mr Green know what it was that he said to John Brown that so upset him?
21) How far does engaging with the fans go, if it does not extend to doing what they want?
22) Did any Sevco investors invest in Ticketus at the time of the Whyte take-over?
23) Is Mr Green willing to legally bind himself not to carry out sale for leaseback of Ibrox and not to sell off Murray Park for development?
24) Does Mr Green accept that if the “club” he and his fellow investors now own is “Rangers FC” and if they want to continue with that club name, history, club colours etc then as a quid pro quo he will accept full responsibility for their past sporting misdemeanours / outstanding fines, any future punishment (AT, dual contracts etc)??
25) If no, then please tell what the new name of the club is going to be (without the word rangers anywhere in it) and clearly state it is a NEW football “club” which just happens to play at Ibrox, but which is now completely separate from the “club” which used to play there and therefore cannot accept and liabilities for that past club (sporting or commercial).
26) How much money has each investor put in so far and how much have they committed to invest in the future?
