The Rangers Charity Foundation – Rangers Legends v AC Milan Glorie – From Scotzine

“When faced with the possible administration and liquidation of the football club they all supported or had an interest in, the Trustees placed the interests of the charity secondary to those of the football club.” – a statement from the regulatory body for charities.

I have written already both here and here about the complications caused by the changed arrangements for the above charity match.

In both pieces I have referred to the excellent work done by the Rangers Charity Foundation, and I reiterate that.

I have a new piece at Scotzine.com recapping and updating the position.

The above quote is not from the Office of the Scottish Charity Regulator, which is investigating the circumstances surrounding the match on Friday, but by the Charity Commission, in relation to a charity related to Plymouth Argyle lending the club money.

There are some interesting parallels in the two situations – pop over to Scotzine to read the full piece.
