The Easdale Brothers, Rangers Shares, “Fit and Proper” and Charles Green

And so the Rangers saga continues …

I want to look at the revelation earlier in the week that Mr Green, erstwhile CEO, is selling or has agreed to sell his shares in the PLC which owns 100% of the shares in the company which owns that assets and business which constitute Rangers Football Club to James Easdale.

Mr Easdale, along with his brother Sandy, owns McGill’s Coaches, one of the most successful bus and coach businesses in Scotland.

The BBC suggested the sale was to be to James Easdale, whilst the Scotsman suggested it would be to both James and Sandy.

There are a few questions which arise from the story.

1                    How much of Rangers do the Easdale brothers own just now?

2                    Is there likely to be any difficulty if the Easdales acquire the shares or, as suggested in the reports, seek a Board appointment?

3                    How can Mr Green sell his shares – is he not “locked in”?

I will do my best to clarify each matter.

How Much of Rangers Do the Easdales Own Now?

According to both the BBC report and that of the Scotsman, the Easdales own 6% of the shares.

Helpfully the Rangers website lists “major shareholders”.

The list is as follows:-

Major Shareholding (3% or above):

Charles Green 5,071,629 7.79%
Hargreave Hale Limited 5,022,000 7.71%
Artemis Investment Management LLP 4,286,000 6.58%
Blue Pitch Holding 4,000,000 6.14%
Mike Ashley 3,000,000 4.61%
Margarita Funds Holding Trust 2,600,000 3.99%
Cazenove Capital Management Limited 2,450,000 3.76%
Richard Hughes 2,200,000 3.38%
Imran Ahmad 2,200,000 3.38%
Legal & General Investment Management Limited 2,000,000 3.07%

 

That list does not disclose either Easdale as an owner, nor do the companies mentioned seem to be related, unless the shares are held by one of the corporate entities as nominees. It is of course possible that each Mr Easdale, and their company, own 2% each, and so none of those would show on the shareholding lost.

However (and I have not had the chance to check the precise wording of the Stock Exchange regulations) there are rules regarding associated parties which, in general and subject to a variety of caveats, require combined shareholding in PLCs to be disclosed, as treating them as individual shareholdings could lead to market abuse (which is NOT to suggest that the Easdales are in any way involved with such an activity).

6% of Rangers amounts to about 4 million shares. At the float price they would have cost £2.8 million. The acquisition of Mr Green’s shareholding of over 5 million shares, together, potentially, with the 2.2 million of Mr Ahmad and the 2.2 million of Richard Hughes of Zeus Capital, could leave the Easdales with around 13.5 million shares, or about 20% of the issued share capital.

If the reports are correct, and they are looking for some form of control, then they are well on their way with such a holding. Of course one of the reasons for the float was to ensure that nobody could “own” the club in the same way that Sir David Murray and then Craig Whyte did.

It does not seem to have worked!

In addition, and dependent, as I will discuss relative to the third question, on the arrangements for sale, what we might now be seeing are entrepreneurial businessmen, taking advantage of a drop in the share price.

The share price now is around 58.5p, giving a market capitalisation of under £40 million. As Mr Green took great delight in telling us however, the club owned fixed assets worth £60-£70 million, and the club had no debt. It has just raised £22 million in a share issue.

Being able to acquire assets worth, based only on the above figures, around £90 million for a total cost of under £40 million would put the Easdales in the running for Businessmen of the Year 2013, following Mr Green’s claim to the title for 2012.

If the reports are correct and Mr Green is disposing of these shares then we can expect a Stock Exchange announcement giving details, including the Easdales’ existing holdings. We shall wait and see.

Are There Obstacles to the Easdales Buying Shares or Being on the Board?

No … and yes.

As far as owning shares in a football club, where that club is traded on the Stock Market, it would be impossible to police every share purchase, let alone miscreants involved in. So it would be very hard to stop someone unsavoury owning shares. (And I am NOT calling the Easdales “unsavoury”).

However where there is an active participation in an executive or Board role, or even as with Mr Romanov, as a majority owner, the “mythical” fit and proper test set by the SFA requires to be passed.

The focus thus falls on Sandy Easdale. He was imprisoned for 27 months in 1997 for a £1.5 million VAT fraud. Would that render him not a “fit and proper person”?

Mr Di Stefano at Dundee was clearly deemed fit and proper, despite convictions for fraud some years before. However, as the SFA process involves asking the person themselves if they are “fit and proper”, thus explaining Mr Regan’s reference to the test as mythical, this does not really create a precedent.

What should operate in Mr Easdale’s favour are the clear, robust and forthright words of the Traffic Commissioner for Scotland. In 2010 Joan Aitken conducted an inquiry into alleged rule breaches by McGill’s Coaches. Whilst she fined the company for failing to maintain a proper standard of service on all its rots, she commented on various matters which came before her enquiry regarding Mr Easdale.

As the Herald reported in 2010:-

She (Joan Aitken) lambasted “gossip-mongers and those who expect me to act on their chit-chat” for perpetrating what she regarded as unfounded allegations against Easdale. Referring to his entire family, she said: “I have no evidence that any of the Easdales are engaged in any criminal activities; no evidence of money laundering; no evidence of drug dealing, or of harassment, or of threatening public officials.”

Aitken did not say who the gossipers were. But she added: “No officer of Vehicle and Operator Services Agency, or Strathclyde Police, or HM Revenue and Customs, or Crown Office, or other public or private agency or corporate body or private citizen has brought me evidence (as distinct from supposition) of any wrongdoing.

“There is Mr Sandy Easdale’s conviction, which was very serious indeed and merited a hefty sentence, but he is over a decade on from that and there is no evidence of recidivism or other offending.”

Aitken, in her findings yesterday, made it clear she too wanted to clear the air about McGill’s, one of the biggest independent bus operators in the country.

There was an “elephant in the room”, she said. The Traffic Commissioner even cracked a joke. Describing Easdale’s evidence, taken in March, she said: “I observed to him that I did not think he would torch my car.” But Aitken’s findings will have reverberations way beyond McGill’s.

Strathclyde Police yesterday confirmed they had made no representations to the inquiry, despite being mentioned in a paragraph about “gossip-mongers”. Strathclyde Police, along with other forces across Scotland, has been eager to use regulatory authorities such as the bus watchdog as a new line of attack on organised crime.

Aitken, in yesterday’s findings, showed it will take evidence and not, as she put it, “supposition”, to convince regulators a firm or an individual is not a fit and proper person.

To use the good old term, Mr Easdale has “tholed his assize”. He committed a crime and has been punished. In addition, unlike Mr Whyte for example, his deeds are the subject of public record and public comment. It does not take a team of detectives to track down the details of the conviction.

One interesting contrast between the Traffic Commissioner’s proceedings and those of the SFA would be the burden of proof.

The Traffic Commissioner clearly saw that, unless there was evidence that a person was not fit and proper, then they should be accepted as such.

However the SFA rules appear to suggest that the burden is on the applicant to demonstrate that they are fit and proper. In most cases this distinction would make no difference, but where there is a mark against an applicant, as there is here, I think that the SFA would be entitled (and indeed obliged) to make further enquiry.

Rehabilitation is a primary goal, along with punishment, of the criminal justice system. What better way to demonstrate complete rehabilitation than by helping create a legitimate and major business, providing a vital service to many, and employing a sizeable workforce?

And finally in this section, I have no doubt that “gossip-mongers” do not exist in Scottish football …

How can Mr Green sell his shares – is he not “locked in”?

Yes he is.

A lock in, or lock up period can be defined as:-

A window of time in which investors of a hedge fund or other closely-held investment vehicle are not allowed to redeem or sell shares. The lock-up period helps portfolio managers avoid liquidity problems while capital is put to work in sometimes illiquid investments.

The effect and purpose are as follows:-

IPO lock-up is a common lock-up period in the equities market used for newly-issued public shares. IPO lock-ups typically last anywhere from 90 to 180 days after the first day of trading, and are in place to prevent shareholders with a large proportion of ownership (such as company executives) from flooding the market with shares during the initial trading period.

This suggests that Mr Green has agreed to sell his shares, but has not yet been able to do so.

Whilst a company could remove the lock in, that would require various formalities and there are no signs that has been done.

Instead it is perfectly legitimate to reach an agreement to sell at a future date. What would be very interesting would be to find out what price has been agreed.

Is Mr Green selling at a fixed price, so both parties have a risk dependent on whether the shares go up or down in the intervening period?

Is the share sale to be at the prevailing market price on the date of sale?

Does Mr Green have to wait till the end of the lock in and, should some unforeseen disaster strike the company and an insolvency event occurred (this is purely a hypothetical comment and no slight is intended on the solvency of the most financially stable football club in the UK © Imran Ahmad), would Mr Green get nothing?

Now Mr Green is in the fortunate position of having acquired his shares through very advantageous (and entirely legitimate) share options as agreed by the Board which employed him. In theory therefore, selling his shares for 2p each would double his money.

However, with the shares having traded at over 90p, then I am sure Mr Green hopes to receive a sum far closer to that than to what he paid for them!

If the Easdales want a place on the Board then presumably they would want to actually own shares?

If a sale has been agreed now at a fixed price, then might this too affect the rights of other shareholders? Having 5 million shares, being almost 8% of the company hit the market would normally, on the laws of supply and demand, depress the price.

I am sure that we will have a Stock Exchange announcement very soon to make the whole matter crystal clear.

    The real question here is this:

    Why have the so called Guardians of honesty and fair play,i.e. EUFA not stepped in and demanded explanations as to how a National Association (SFA) have failed to comply with their rules and regulations?

    The fact that those people from from the South West of our great City were given an associate membership tells the whole story about corruption in Scottish football.

    Now that the late CEO of the cheats has admitted that he told lies, something has to happen.

    Would suggest that a campaign be mouinted to force EUFA to engage on this issue.

    Due to their admissions of guilt, the alleged 4th. tier team should be stripped of all points they gained, put at the bottom of the pile, have to reaply for membership, forced to show their accounts and failure to do so render them unfit to participate in competive football

    Time now for EUFA to end corruption in Scottish football

  2. mick

  3. Paul

    From leggoland he thinks the Whyte movie is already been filmed and thinks it’s Taggart.
    “And the other person still to be interviewed by Taggart is the man at the very heart of the scam, the old twister himself, Craig Whyte.But what if Taggart does snap the handcuffs on Craig Whyte? What if the Crown Office proceed with a prosecution? What if Whyte is found guilty of perpetrating a fraud in order to buy Rangers?

    like your team taggart is dead long ago

  4. Monti

    You have to laugh at the sevconians, they probably think that somebody,anybody out there is wanting to buy an Asbestos riddled,ageing stadium, with a crumbling marble staircase ahahah…..there is nothing of value in there, wee craigey has stripped the place, is the blue room even blue now? How can they really be in receipt of a safety certificate, when the stadium has an asbestos problem??? Ahahaha at least wee craigy bhoy left the asbestos….i feel your pain and it is wonderful to me. How bad is the asbestos problem? Do they have the cash to remove these deadly fibres? When is the work being carried out? Does Glasgow city council have a say on whether this haven of sectarianism closes? Tick tock tick tock …..i see a tall,dark hooded faceless figure with demonic red eyes approaching, he carries a scythe in his right hand & a bowl of ice cream & jelly in the other, the sky is going black with red flames breaking the darkness…..the figure whispers something…it’s……Graffiti on the wall as the sun was going down….it says we’re magic, we’re magic..

  5. dan

    Joratim, your point seems reasonable to me. Maybe all non-Sevco fans should bombard EUFA with emails. I mean, can we be confident that the SFA have even kept them up to date with the hilarity down Govan way? I seriously doubt that.

  6. Monti

    How can this be happening to us, we are the peepel? I know it really is a shame! 2 Jelly & ice cream & jelly days to go haha! Presented with the big shiny Green & white ribboned SPL trophy & hopefully a Scottish cup to add as well! Sevconians? Hahahahahahahahahahahahaha…..oh dear!

    rangers biggest problem is who has enough in there bank account to get them an overdraft over these lean months, when the league is finished
    they cant depend on season books this time to shore up the accounts
    as they already used that, as if they where mega rich. this time they cant rob peter to pay Paul. it is also noted once again the sfa have shifted there inquiry date for Mr green racist comment, yet never seem to miss a Lennon date, they say he is on holiday well if Neil had thought that one up
    who knows what would have happened. how long is green away for who has said he will be back.

    • How do you know how much Rangers have in the bank ? Have you seen the bank balance ? …guess , speculation , obsession , guess , speculation, obsession, guess , speculation……..you get the picture .

      • More importantly ya numpty…Has your Chairman seen a bank balance since the IPO?

    It just struck me. If Lenny does go, could he be said to be the third green and whyte to do a runner?

  14. Paul

    Celtic offered £100.00 of next season’s season tickets, Sevco offered free bus passes from new owners for a new season of magical mystery tours.

  15. What’s really p×××ing the green seat brigade off is we’ve taken everything that has been thrown at us and then some and while they speculate and dream up mince and become more obsessed by the hour the mighty Rangers , 54 times champions of Scotland , put plans in place for next season it’s just one idiot after another clown followed by a couple of muppets and the montit assisted by the expert of fcuk all thick Mick , who struggles to string a coherent sentence together , LMFAO, people who have nothing to do from dawn till dusk , but speculate and dream up drivel until it’s their turn to sign on , then back to the start ROTFLMFAO .

    Fkcu! Superboreboard was bad tonight! I always listen in the hope that mouth-breather ‘John from Uddingston’ comes on. He’s a Sevconian but great for a laugh when he drones on about minutiae that no one gives a fkcu about. Anyway, I was a bit glad I switched as there were laughs to be had on the Beeb. The biggest being Wacko Jacko actually portraying himself as a proper churno and claiming to have doubted Chico from the off. Honestly, you couldn’t give that creep a red neck with a thermal lance. But at least you could hear they were really shitting it viz-a-viz Sevco I mean really shitting it. While over on Boreboard, big DJ’s squeaky voice was nearing glass shattering pitch as he struggled to put a brave face on things Sevco-wise. But then the big galloot stepped right intae the shite. This caller ( a Sevconian) came on to complain that the Hibbees shouldn’t be allowed into Europe if they are runners up in the cup—well they do play in green and white, don’t they. And DJ (he’s a’ legend’ apparently) squeaked his agreement with the caller. Well, do I need to say what happened next? Cue Lawrie ( a Tim) to remind the ‘legend’ that when he won his European Cup Winners Cup medal with Oldco, it was courtesy of them being runners up to the wonderful, law-abiding and tax-paying Glasgow Celtic in the cup final? I guess the big lug’s just hiedered too many baws. What a Doofus!

            Thanks Mick – you are also right about carson: he is most definitely a prick. He confirms it with every post he makes.

          • Fra

            @Mick my friend. Sincere and from the heart. Thatchers policies of me, me, me have resulted in a society where failures like Minty Moonbeams are lauded and good honest working class people are discarded by a greedy society.

            The goings on at sevco are an indirect result of Thatchers greed where Moonbeams can borrow extortionate amounts and the results are, a dead football team, hundreds of small businesses shafted, employees shafted for wages while SDM, CW and CG et al swan about in jags while living in small castles at the expense of the working classes.

        Why is anyone taking any notice of Carsehole.
        You’ve got to imagine the heartache he’s been through this last two years.. seeing his team die. Then when it seemed like there was some hope of a new club coming along where they could all pretend it was the same old cesspit, it all turns to shit.
        The best bit about it …they did it to themselves…nobody else to blame.
        Is it any surprise he’s a bitter twisted wreck, more to be pittied than despised

  22. Ecojon , your right ! I don’t know how much is in the bank ..I would like to think that it’s a substantial amount ..topped up by new season book sales and new kit sales , but again , i dont know , that’s why I don’t speculate , guess and become obsessed with it , do you know ? If sellick told me they had 1 billion I the bank I couldn’t argue with it because I wouldn’t know , but some on here see speculation as a proven science , lmao.

The stock opened stable against the previous close, but then gradually declined in the course of the session, closing downbeat near the day’s lowest level. The technical scenario for Rangers International Football Club Plc in the last week shows the security lagging behind the UK FTSE All Share. As compared to the related index, the security has shown a lower performance

    Update on Imran Ahmad / IamRangers Debacle….

    The story has took a bizarre turn today. It’s an open secret on Rangers Media that Imran used his formal rangers.co.uk email address when he created the account. This is being discussed on the forum tonight and most agree he was a bit stupid to do that…

    Just one problem. The record shows that the user IamRangers (assumed to be the Imran account) was posting on the forum as far back as October 2011. This would mean he had a rangers.co.uk email address when Craig Whyte was in control…

    I don’t believe any of this and, as with so many other strands in this ongoing farce, we are unlikely to ever discover anything resembling the truth of what happened. More secrets for the soon-to-be-dead Sevco to take to the grave.

      A load of bull. Was thought up by 6 RM users. I took the library of doing some digging myself and what I found out made me laugh. I cast a line very very far away from RM and low and behold it came back to said forum. I wont go into it at the moment but I made a poster that had many thousands of posts walk out of RM in protest. Still working on it. But what I will say is.
      For the avoidance of doubt. IamRangers is not IA.

    • 100bjd

      gortchomhor,
      I am not an expert although I would say that the original iamrangers comments seem to be totally different and with different styles from the later offerings which contain some pretty detailed stuff. I actually prophesised this week that Imran would get “packaged up” and I mentioned that he did technically have a case against the club for racial discrimination, thanks to his mate Chico. A case of me to you…you to me Chuckles brothers symbiosis. Technically, of course, in the real world Imran has been proved to have done nothing and is right up there on the constructive dismissal front. Again this is another huge package for an alleged spiv and the whole process being conducted by rank amateurs. All they had to do was wait for the independent report and sort the strategy out from there. The public aspect of the report in itself is actually not all that clever because you are boxed in tactically by the result. It is all well and good Malcolm Murray taking the moral high ground but he is up against a low life street fighter in the google eyed one. Can you imagine being pulled up in the former Dry Dock in Scotstoun by some guy with a reputation for redecorating your face….and you say fists only and first to give in loses!………No……well thats what this feels like.Murray needs to get a grip here or his club will be gone again.

  28. I think I’m coming onto this site more and more for my old firm fix.The Craic between Monti Carson Cam etc is what I have been missing this season.
    Sorry guys if I’m in the minority here,but as a celtic fan I miss the old firm games during the season. On the lead up to the match usually from Wednesday onwards after buying the celtic view,the adrenalin would start to kick in,guys at work from both sides winding one another up,everyone would buy a different paper to get as much detail as we could about who was playing or injuries etc.The night before the game just pure excitement,a carry out with the guys,old DVD/ videos on of past games,great discussions on our fav old firm games and players, and then the rebels getting belted out. Then match day,colours on ,meet up at the bookies get the bets on,see a few of mates from the other half,give one another pelters in a friendly way,share a drink,knowing that in a few hours time,for 90+mins we will hate one another.
    Into the pub early doors of course,pints flowing everyone going nuts to see if there are spare tickets,keep checking the pockets making sure you still have yours,songs getting louder,bus comes on we go,carry out,see other buses along the way thumbs up if they are your comrades in arms,arses up if they are the enemy, songs louder,fever pitch now, knots in my stomach head pounding,we are at the ground,walk in the noise ,geez it makes your hair stand on end, the sash from one end,soldiers song from ours,game starts,think im taking a heart attack by this time,goal for your team delirium fall down about 4 rows hugs to everyone you will never meet again,sheer magic and what a goal,2cd half goal for them basta#ds,ref it was never a penalty ya Masonic bas€$rd, the huddle from us the bouncy from them,do I miss those days, you bet I do,roll on 3 years can’t come quick enough. Sorry for the language but you have to tell it like how it felt,no malice intended to anyone on here.

    Daily Record reports today that Imram Ahmad is indeed the poster “IamRangers” on RM and is now being forced out of Ibrox for his online attacks on Smith/McCoist/Murray etc.
    If true, and it seems to be, it’s truly disgraceful that executives have stooped to such lowlife underhand tactics, but typical of the behaviour we’ve come to expect from this mob.

    • ecojon

      @charliedon

      I realise that AIM is very loth to suspend trading in a company’s shares but there comes a time when it has to take that step to protect shareholders and the market integrity.

      I notice a ‘sell’ at 56p this morning – so far all that has stayed the AIM hand is the very low volumes but that could become a torrent within minutes and AIL know that.

      The other major problem AIM has is the fact that the CEO has gone in rather questionable circumstances with various serious allegations made against him and Ahmad.

      And now we have very serious allegations against Ahmad regarding bitter in-fighting at the heart of the Board and also allegations of sensitive commercial information being leaked.

      It may well be that after close of play today that AIM might take the decision that enough is enough to prevent a total collapse in the share price. PR people traditionally use Fridays to try and bury bad news or at the very least get a weekend ‘buffer’ before the sh*t really hits the fans.

    @carson says this site is nothing but idle speculation. Well so far, most of the speculation has turned into fact. Of course, Rangers haven’t been liquidated for a second time and I think there are many influential people who will not allow that to happen – who wants the white proddy underclass let loose on our streets creating their mini kristalnacht? Not to mention the suspicious packages sent to democratically elected politicians by the Kuilwinning faithfull.
    However, all of the crookedness is robbing Rangers of the cash reserve they should have to carry them to the SPL, and crucially, to build a side capable of challenging Celtic FC within the next 10 years.
    At the end of Dec 2012, they had £22m in the bank. Let’s see what is there when we see audited numbers. Remember that any half decent auditor will ensure that the accounts reflect all actual and contingent liabilities – remember the Orlit debt?
    Rangers will limp on, but Chico and his partners in greed will ensure that Rangers are crippled for years to come.

    • Ed Paisley

      I hear you say – how can Chico rip off Rangers with the sainted cardigan on the board? Bung Walter a few quid and he would say Green is White if you asked him to. Just like his boy Alastair McCoist.

    So much for ma bloody love-in. It was all going well for about two days.

    Monti refrained from IRA postings and Carson stopped adding tit to Montis name. At least it was good while it lasted but I’m one who enjoys the gentle ribbing because the extremes on both sides show that the posters come from opposing sides of the spectrum.

    Why should we refrain from being ourselves? Is this not what makes this blog appealing. It might get heated depending on our mood at time of posting but again, I enjoy all postings.

    I may not agree or understand everything posted but the way Paul allows the arguments or posts to flow must be congratulated in this day of censorship.

  38. As mentioned, the dates of IAR stretching back to October 2011 are puzzling! Either he was involved long before he claims to have been, or Sevco have a bank of Alky Ida sleeper cell pseudo post names at their disposal.
    Was the sleeper cells of misnformation mentioned by Duff&Phelps as part of the assets? We know how they like to peddle propaganda down Ibrokes way, and having a wee personal infiltration device to guide the gullible would have been a lovely wee sweetener to clinch the deal. Lol.

      Not only are we a ‘classless’ club but we are proud ot and just as we are proud of being ‘all-inclusive’.

      I really would have thought that any actual rangers supporter would be on Berr fan sites trying to save his club than making an absolute tit of himself on here. But, like many others, I enjoy laughing at you so please stay if you thing your drivel is helping save Rangers.

      They are beyond help and certainly beyond Redemption. In case you have any difficulty with the concepts involved please take your pick from:

      REDEMPTION

      1. The act of redeeming or the condition of having been redeemed.
      2. Recovery of something pawned or mortgaged.
      3. The payment of an obligation, as a government’s payment of the value of its bonds. – Might even apply to paying taxes 🙂
      4. Deliverance upon payment of ransom; rescue.
      5. Christianity Salvation from sin through Jesus’s sacrifice

      • So not only are you classless ..but all inclusive ..wow ….breakfast , lunch and evening meal at breezblock towers , washed down by gallons of anti freeze until eleven pm !….naw your alright mate , I’ll just have a bluenose burger and a dairy milk .

    • tykebhoy

      If you are going to use that logic are The Rangers going to forgo their tainted promotion and first ever division win then? I mean their CEO was probably on a bigger wedge than the aggregated salaries of the playing squads of all the 9 other teams!

    @gortchomhor

    You make a good point about IamRangers posting on Rangers Media as far back as 2011.

    It could mean of course that this has been a long-standing conduit from the club onto the site and the posting frequency and content might be interesting.

    However, it might equally have been a ‘defunct’ poster name which would be handy if used for ‘hidden purposes’ because it would appear to be a long-standing Rangers supporter possibly with a reasonable post count and thus more likely to be given credence by Bears and not dismissed with the ‘shifty eyes’.

    It’s hard to believe anything coming out of Ibrox these days as everyone is spinning like hell to keep ‘rapeepul’ watching the plates while the money makes a swift exit down the marble staircase 🙂

    • It could mean ?…it might be ?…content might be ?…while the money makes a swift exit down the marble stair case ?…speculation , guess , speculation ….oh for the love of the wee man ! Give us proof ! You know nothing ! Tommy the taxi driver is the man !

      • Carson mate, look I don’t want to see you, or anybody fleeced by spivs. Especially people who can least afford it.
        You say you buy 3 SB’s. Fair enough!
        Ask yourself this. Do Sevco need front loaded with SB sales?
        You will not be in the transfer market, so the obvious answer is no.
        Why not, you and your fellow bears pay at the gate? Go every week like good bears, but hold onto a little power.
        Then you can exert at least some influence on proceedings, and increase, or withdraw your support, dependant on how things are progressing. If anything, by paying on a game by game basis, you will have increased the clubs income.

    Agent Whyte I hold you in the highest regard, you are a credit to your country, your work is almost complete & be reassured you are making a lot of people happy. Could you report to Agent Lawwell asap with an update……out!

    Maybe the Rangers ‘old guard’ were in cahoots with Craig Whyte all along to get him in cahoots with Charles Green so that he could manipulate and get their consortium money then be ousted so the ‘old guard’ could then be reinstated and the debt wiped and the Empire theirs once again. Craig always claimed he would one day be seen as the saviour and maybe it goes back to the binned Titon report, the £1 coin and David Murray’s evil laugh trembling down the marble staircase. Hey Presto – a hundred million pounds and more of other people’s money dissolved and on we go – cursing the ‘haters’ and detractors who dared halt our progress through immediate SPL admission after liquidation and reconstitution. Wee arra peepil!

    IF and i do say IF,
    the poster is proven to be Ahmed, then if Whytes case is upheld ,Ahmed could regret this line…….On Whyte’s claims he owned Rangers through Sevco, the poster said: “These are forged documents. Whyte is just adding to his list of crimes.”……… Allegations of forgery at Sevco, well deary deary me

    I see “the rangers” are having yet another “Charity Legends match” coming soon.

    Those legal fees must really be taking their toll.

    Anonomously posting propaganda and deviously undermining his fellow directors on RM is probably not even the worst of the various tactics Ahmed and his cohorts have employed in the pursuit of Rangers. But it’s a perfect example of their complete lack of ethics or trustworthiness and is a clear glimpse into the depths of the murky waters in which they operate.

      There was speculation last night the log in iamrangers gos back to whytes time uncharge so don’t believe what you read in record it’s mental the whole kabal is at each others throats dignity indeed lol hail hail

  46. @eco,
    If it is the case that Imran, was posting as IAR, then the questions that pose are frankly quite scary! Obviously, if he was posting as far back as Oct 2011, a lot of thing’s are blown from the water, and many police charges will follow, possibly taking the trail back as far as David Murray.
    If it is the case that earlier postings were made by A. N. Other, then it follows that Imran must have been given the IAR slot, by an insider of the previous regime, who has now grasses him up! It is so murky!
    I believe that most clubs probably poke their noses into forums on occasions, to monitor fans feelings etc, but to have actually illicit non de plumes available to guide and influence opinions and thought processes, is totally abhorrant!
    It does beggar belief, and leads you to wonder what other hidden agendas are also being pursued by covert means and possibly, as yet undiscovered channels. As I said…Scary.
    Sorry to have put up a post similar to your own mate. On my phone and musta missed it. :-).
