The ongoing scandal of the circumstances surrounding Rangers being granted a licence to play in the Champions League in Season 2011/2012 has taken a new twist.
I have been informed by sources very close to Celtic that they have contacted UEFA regarding the circumstances under which Rangers FC (1873-2012) were granted a licence to play in UEFA competitions.
Before this communication was made a very senior UEFA official was approached for guidance.
The Nyon based chap was amazed at the import of the proposed missive from Celtic.
I have today submitted the following questions to the UEFA Media Office in Switzerland:
Has Celtic Football Club submitted a letter about the granting of a European licence to Rangers FC for the Season 2011/2012?
If so, is this letter about the fact that Rangers FC owed money to a taxing authority?
Does this letter question the oversight abilities of the Scottish Football Association?
If I receive replies to these questions then I will publish them here.
I also understand that on the same day the Parkhead club wrote to UEFA they also sent a very detailed letter to the SFA asking very precise questions of the governing body apropos this matter.
