According to the SPL:-
The written decision of the Commission appointed in relation to RFC 2012 Plc (now in liquidation) and Rangers FC and chaired by Lord Nimmo Smith will be published on Thursday 28 February at 12.00 noon.
Luckily I should be by the laptop at that point, to provide dense and opaque analysis of the decision! 🙂
But, purely for fun and not intended as a scientific exercise, I thought I would offer my readers some input.
What do you think the outcome will be?
If I can work it, the polls will close at noon. (I can’t work that, but they will close tomorrow evening – that is Thursday).
I refer in the polls to RFC 2012 PLC (in liquidation) as “oldco”; to Rangers FC as the “club; and to Rangers International Football Club PLC and Rangers Football Club Ltd as “newco”.
As the SPL statement says, the case is against oldco and the club, but newco has an interest in the outcome as owner of the club.
In addition, there are four coounts. Three relate to failure to disclose contrcatual arrangements and the fourth to a failure by Duff & Phelps to co-operate by providing requested information.
So to the first poll:-
The second poll is in relation to penalty. Unless the SPL and SFA are very conspiratorial, a not guilty verdict will not lead to a penalty, but even if you have chosen “not guilty” feel free, if you want, to have a guess at the outcome if the Commission finds against Rangers. In this one you can provide more than one answer, and up to three, as the Commission can impose any one or more of 18 (or is it 19) possible sanctions.
I wonder what we will see!
Will it be this?
