Liquidation Day

So it was all a Fenian’s fantasy?

The idea that the mighty Rangers would suffer the humiliation of liquidation was obviously just the ramblings of deluded bloggers in undignified places like Donegal.

Yeah?

Today should put the officially sanctioned narrative of Rangers to bed for all time.

HMRC will move to have the club liquidated.

Their guys will carry out the liquidation.

It will be a corporate execution on a digital scaffold to be viewed by all on Planet Fitba.

Their humiliation will be total.

“Piercing the corporate veil” is a term that we will all become very familiar with in the weeks and months ahead.

My thoughts are drawn to a certain knight of the realm whose father served 18 months in prison in the early 1960s for “fraudulent conversation” a trifling matter over some race horses and outstanding taxes.

The mainstream media are programmed to beg for scraps from the Rangers table.

Even when that piece of furniture has been sold in the corporate equivalent of a Warrant Sale they will still simper at the same place like one of Ivan Pavlov’s laboratory trained mutts.

My published interest in Rangers financial troubles goes back three years.

http://www.philmacgiollabhain.ie/the-fall-of-the-house-of-murray/

The bank taking effective control of the club was major step towards oblivion for Rangers.

Once I had been given the tip about the existence of the “Big Tax Case” in early 2010 it was game on.

I started to attract the attention of people who wanted me to stop.

In June 2011 journalists in Glasgow were briefed by PR chaps suggesting that my idea that Mr Whyte had used future season ticket money was a monstrous libel.

Yeah, sure.

Then there were several attempts to take this site offline last year.

Arranging to have the Sheriff Officer blokes snapped outside Ibrox seemed to be the last straw for some.

http://www.philmacgiollabhain.ie/photographs-you-were-not-meant-to-see/

The Fenian in Donegal had to be silenced.

In one instance some “stakeholders” at the Ibrox club complained to the web hosting company that this blog was “damaging Rangers as a going concern” because I was spreading lies.

The web hosting company blinked.

So I moved to another server.

Then there was a DOS attack.

We upgraded the bandwidth package at great expense.

The allegation that this site was having a negative impact on the financial health of the business was correct.

I was informed that the new regime was having real difficulty raising a credit line because of the negative headlines.

I was pleased when I heard this because that was my intention.

If the objective of the off the record briefings against me was to reduce the number of page views to this site then it was a total failure!

Moreover, if they thought that being called “a chancer” with a “comedy blog”  would stop me then that also failed.

It is the mainstream media who are being laughed at as this saga unfolds.

I just kept at it and my weapon of choice was the truth.

Today I’m smiling.

    Hi All

    Well it Happened..Or did it,its like if we don’t really talk about it then it never happened,we had months of Sky Sports News going live to Castle Greyskull now that it has finally Gone into Liquidation then its a quick mention and Sneaked into a wee part of The Scottish Media pages,Same as Super Sally and his actions that caused so much hassle to various Named People on a Panel,Yes you know the poor people that suffered there thanks to Super Sally and yes Daily Record Managed to tuck it away on Page 60 Something next to a two page spread on the Zombies.
    Think Mr Chico Green needs taken to task as well, He said that he had a Deal sorted with the Dallas Cowboys remember that one? Well I see that The Dallas Cowboys have said they have never talked to Mr Chico Green or heard of Whatever they are called FC and I remember some months ago The same Chap said he was of to Greece to arrange a Glamour Match with Olympiacos and after I contacted The Director of Football at the club again regarding Mr Chico Green and Zombie FC same answer ..WHO?

    Lots of Stories coming from the leader of the Zombies how is he never challenged on these points by the Scottish Media..Oh and his new one …yes we’ve raised 17 Million from share issue…and the Band played believe it if you like….

    Gratitude and well deserved phrase to you is indeed well deserved, ever since your exposure of Dallas many of us have been by your side and done our bit to spread the word (your word)
    So a big thank-you as well to ALL the Celtic forums / blogs that have been tracking the sir Minty cheating and the Scottish media’s complicity in it way back to around 2003
    Yourself / RTC / KDS /and the many, many people that have given their time and own cost’s on behalf of justice will be forever Appreciated.

    I find it amazing the joy that redundancy and misery seems to bring to some people… And why? Why such glee in the suffering of others? And I don’t mean the fans. We’re still here, personally I don’t really see anything has changed all that much. I’ms still a Rangers fan and that’s that, and no amount of “Sevco” nonsense will change that or even remotely bother me. But for the people who have and will lose their jobs over this mess everything has changed. But at least it’s putting a big smile on your faces. Hopefully that will cheer the poor guy or woman with 3 kids at home to feed and clothe when he/she is collecting her P45. People need to realise it’s JUST a game for gods sake! It’s a sad day when peoples hatred and vile bigotry become more important than the real life human cost of something like this. People like you (on the Celtic AND Rangers side of the fence) should be absolutely ashamed.

      @AD2012 (aptly named I might add).

      Don’t give me it. Don’t even try. Don’t even attempt to use the “poor people that have lost their jobs” as a pathetic attempt to cover up your sins.

      Your club – the one that died today – was guilty of tax evasion on a scale so high it could’ve ended up at £100m.

      Do you want a list of the creditors it stiffed? Do you want to know how many people were left out of pocket because of the cheating lying ways of Rangers FC?

      And do you know what – you aren’t even sorry and not one word of apology has ever came out of the cesspit called Ibrox because it’s always someone else fault.

      The whole “It wasn’t the clubs’ fault, it was the people who ran the company” is part of the DNA of a klan of people who just can not or will not accept they had any part to play in this whole affair.

      So don’t you dare complain when people rejoice at the demise of your stinking entity called Rangers. The country is better off without it, in many, many ways.

      The Zombies seem to be experts at inventing reasons why Rangers disgusting actions of thievery and deceit should have been ignored.

      ‘Its the fans that are suffering’

      ‘Poor people have lost their jobs’ (no such concern showed when Rangers sold their sports shops to JJB and 500 people lost their jobs)

      ‘Its all lies by bampot Celtic supporters’

    Thanks Phil, I began reading your blog about 2 months ago and have learned much, even though I thought I was well informed beforehand. It’s a great read so I will be tuning in every day from now on. Surprisingly I also found the Leggoland blog at the same time and he had some great insight even though he comes from the diametrically opposite viewpoint. The Rangers fans now hate him too because he’s been ‘telling them like it is’. Keep up the good work Phil. HH

The biggest story in this whole episode has been the diminishing powers of the msm. All this would never have happened in the pre internet days when rangers’ control over the media was absolute. Now we have alternatives, now we have truth!

    The pockets of our greatcoats full of barley…
    No kitchens on the run, no striking camp…
    We moved quick and sudden in our own country.
    The priest lay behind ditches with the tramp.
    A people hardly marching… on the hike…
    We found new tactics happening each day:
    We’d cut through reins and rider with the pike
    And stampede cattle into infantry,
    Then retreat through hedges where cavalry must be thrown.
    Until… on Vinegar Hill… the final conclave.
    Terraced thousands died, shaking scythes at cannon.
    The hillside blushed, soaked in our broken wave.
    They buried us without shroud or coffin
    And in August… the barley grew up out of our grave.

    God bless Phil

    Phil, I congratulate you (and RTC) for a job well done. You have continually brought into the public domain issues that the MSM sought to ignore (or bury).

    Anyway, at the risk of being controversial, I could not care less what if any sanctions are imposed on NEW COMPANY RFC(2012). It is all academic – the guilty party, RFC inc 1899 exists no more. They are dead. That is the ultimate punishment – the death penalty and oblivion. Anything else is retribution and I don’t care about that. Flogging a corpse is pointless.

    Thanks also to HMRC for doing the right thing. I will continue to pay my taxes safe in the knowledge that fear or favour is granted to no one. As it should be.

    I have followed and participated in your blog for a while now and I hope my small contribution helps to keep it going long into the future.

    Phil, quite simply thanks. As ive said before, your posts have been an education and a joy to read. When i foolishly read the tripe in the Scottish press, and started to think that Dignity F.C. would worm their way out of this, it was to your posts id turn for reassurance that the game, was most certainly over for them. And so its proved. Keep up the great work and if i ever bump into you in Ashton Lane, in Glasgows’ West End, then a pint of the black stuff is on me. Cheers.

    Well done Phil, I stopped buying Glasgow newspapers about 5 years ago. In my adolecent years of the mid 80’s onward’s I hung on their every word, as did most Celtic minded folk. Now because of their outright hostility to our community over many years we all view them as pathetic.

    I was in the wee shop at Yorkhill hospital the other day and happened to see the front and back page of one of them laid in front of me, it was glorying in the demise of Ireland at he hands of Croatia and the part Jelovic played in it. long may their circulations dwindle and dry up…

    All we want is a level playing field.

    Take a bow Phil; you deserve to sit back tonight and feel a total sense of achievement and vindication. You were vilified and ridiculed by sinister elements within Scotland who had a lot to hide but, alongside football fans who wanted the truth, and lately Alex Thomson from Channel 4 News, this was a tide that could not be held back any longer by the Scottish Establishment. They can no more keep Scotland’s Shame hidden in their dirty wee corner of religious and cultural bigotry and apartheid. They can’t hide behind paranoia and media cover ups now because the entire shower have been exposed for what they are. When I get paid I will make a contribution Phil. Hail Hail Sir, no more will the Croppies lie down. This has been a moral victory to those of us in these islands who have been persecuted for being Irish, particularly in Scotland, Catholic and Celtic supporters. This is historical.

    I’m almost sad. I’ve really enjoyed the slow death of Dignity FC. It’s been great entertainment with yourself, Phil, always ahead of the game. I only read the MSM for humour now, to see what the uneducated are having to swallow.

    Because of you, I’ve been confident for months that this day would come, and you’ve reassured me when the MSM spin almost had me convinced that they might survive.

    Thank you.

    Phil, brilliant work I’m sure you feel vindicated. I’ve been visiting the site for many years but rarely post, I just wanted to say thanks. You RTC and CQN have played a huge part in a story that many simply hoped would go away.

    Let’s just hope that the SPL have the courage to say “no to new co” but I’m not so sure.

    In the meantime all fans should just adopt the mantra that whatever SEVCO is, it is NOT Rangers – think Monty Python’s dead parrot sketch and replace the word “parrot” with the word “Rangers”.

    But all of this is a concern and conversation for another day…………

    Today however is the day…….that an organisation which for 80 years refused to employ people (in any capacity) on the grounds of their faith…….that to date is the only senior club in British football NEVER to have fielded a Catholic from the Island of Ireland……that has spent the best part of the last twenty years defrauding every honest tax payer in the country to pay players it could not actually afford….has finally and at long last has got exactly what it deserves!!!

    I think Lou Reed said it best when he said “Oh it’s such a perfect day”

Not that everyone wanted to see the truth, or even believed it (probably still hoping to wake up from the nightmare) The rangers fans and the media should be moving into the depression stage of DABDA since bargaining has failed lol.

    Having read some of the replies on the STV Q&A re RFC and the newco, have been horrified to see them say that the newco will retain all the old co titles, honours, trophies etc. This cant be true can it?

    Phil,Another “Glorious Twelfth” to celebrate and whilst it is sweet it would have been nicer had it happened at the Creditors meeting, some of the fun and anticipation has been taken away. BTW it is highly unusual for HMRC to comment on individual cases and my suspicion is that no dialogue has taken place with HMRC and D&D have known the position all along and have only chosen to confirm it in public for an easier ride at the Creditors meeting.

    You have previously commented that this “Story just keeps on giving” I am sure it will continue to do so. Next chapter is the Courts’ phase as the main players scrap over the carcass.

    Do you know whether Craigy Bhoys shares revert to him in the event of the CVA failure?

    Evening times tonight fawning over poor wee Allie and saying “the club will now have to seek permission from the SPL to retain their status in the top flight”. It’s a new club so they would not be ‘Retaining’ anything, it would be a completely new application.

    Congratulations Phil. I’ll also be making a donation (and have been meaning to for some time).

    I’m still struggling with the £5.5m asset sale (I’m a CA and while not an insolvency specialist by any stretch of the imagination, familiar enough to know that this has to be wrong).

    There are specific provisoons to prevent the practice of selling off the assets to a newco for a pound and stranding the debt. Surely Hector’s liquidators will set aside whatever agreement has been struck with Green on the basis that the players alone – as long as they are sold before formal liquidation takes place – have to be worth more than £5.5m. The ground has to be worth at least that as well. Any newco will need somewhere to play.

    Surely Duff and Duffer don’t want to be doing hard time for fraud by stitching up a deal like that with hector so visibly sniffing about.

      Celtic will no way vote a newco into the spl. That would be the worse thing they could do.the fans would make sure of that. We let our feelings know at the home and away games most of the season. Peter lawell knows the backlash. No more old firm, no more rangers no more cheating. Let’s hope this is the beginning of a new era. I still think there should be a full independent inquiry into rangers business and financial affairs over the last 15 years. I’m so glad Phil has been vindicated in all his work and the underhand tactics by the orcs have not succeeded in quieting him.

    Dear Phil,
    I had some real close insights, for some years into the Murray machine, and followed your journalistic statements with avid interest. The fire is alight and a raging blaze will follow. I am hopeful that the moral assessments and the optimisation of taxpayer benefits are overriding sentiments expressed by other authorities. Let us see integrity remain on display as the Footballing authorities follow with judgements! Trophies are not won, and with certainty, cannot be retained by cheating! There can be no precedent set for any team to misbehave and cheat in the future, and the governing laws must be adhered to. That must be the message! I do not agree with anyone that an SPL without Rangers is a doomed entity. I believe that local residents throughout Scotland will follow in greater numbers, a more competitive and adjudged correctly managed and directed local football club.
    Spartans were heavily punished for an error of “the pen” without intent!
    These double contracted Rangers players are surely just as culpable! It is not just directors who cheated! The entire Rangers club cheated!
    A rebuild of faith in the SFA and SPL is needed, and a competitive Edinburgh, Aberdeen,Dundee, West of Scotlan and indeed Highland challenge, with an emphasis on affordable home grown talent is required! It must be good for the game in general! My opinion is that Scotland will emerge stronger!

    You have a clear and incisive journalism that I admire greatly!

    I’m absolutely delighted at the news of the Liquidation of Rangers FC ! Its a truly historic day in the history of Scottish football and one which will be remembered fondly for years to come. However I am still perplexed as to how its possible for Mr Green to get his hands on the assets of RFC for the paltry sum of £5.5million in order to form a newco. These assets which include Ibrox Stadium, Murray Park and the Albion Carpark are valued at over £100million. So it should be the responsibility of BDO to auction off these assets to the highest bidder to maximise the funds available to the creditors. That’s who matters most right now and I don’t want to see a Zombie Rangers acquire these assets at a knock-down price at the expense of what is rightfully due to creditors. This would be a massive miscarriage of justice. Also, lets hope that the SPL do the decent thing and reject Zombie Rangers’ application to join the SPL. Sporting integrity must be paramount and Zombie Rangers should be forced to go cap in hand to apply for a place in the Scottish 3rd Division but only after they have served at least a one season suspension from football for having contested the transfer embargo in court.

    I think the history books will say Donegal 1 RFC did’t.
    I would finish with keep at them, but there is only some mopping up to do, MSM should be able to do that… On second thoughts a supervisory role may still be necessary.
    Thank you so much for all you have done for us all.

    May you be blessed Phil, for standing up to the establishment bullies. This all puts a different slant on ‘rule brittania’.

    Brilliant phil, enjoyed your blog over the past few years, can you just confirm the situation with regards to their trophies? They are now sayin they will keep there titles when they become newco? Sayin the newco owns the club, the club stays the same? Surely there is no way they can do this, got to be zero league titles n zero cup trophies??

    Schadenfruede. For the first time in my life I will allow myself a wee contented warm cosy glow to wash over me. When devastating events unfold anywhere in society anywhere in the world, I always spare a thought for the victims. As for the events unfolding at Castle Greyskull, its a self inflicted implosion that couldn’t have been scripted any better. I will spare them a thought alright, while sipping a cheeky glass of red in a big hot soapy bubble bath. Agent Phil, return to base, mission accomplished.

      Thanks Philip-the new server costs are significant-we had no choice following the DOS attack last year.
      I have enemies.
      That’s good.
      That means I must have stood up for something.

    Terrific work Phil. Today is your reward. Tonight we will all sleep well but not before a rambunctious jig of joy.

      Looking forward to a future free of RFC.

      I am keen to see how the MSM spin this, but above all how they square their “internet bampots” statement when things turned out the polar opposite of all they confidently stated would happen.

      go the timternet bampots.

    I’m smiling too but, in a sense Phil, haven’t they got away with it? There can be no further claims or litigation against the club. This is Whyte’s master plan realised.

    Smiling is that all. You should be taking a bow!! It took a long time to get to this stage but here it is and the abuse and vile from fans has started in earnest. Well done Phil. Keep up the Good Work!!

    Well done indeed Phil , you are to be congratulated.
    Looks like its the pokey for CW since he was running a company that was effectively trading when insolvent. Would love to see Murrays crown removed also , that would be the icing on the cake.
    Surely now the players can go for nothing and they cannot be classed as an asset.

    Great news for all, one question though, with HMRC’s move to appoint their own liquidators does this mean GREEN cannot purchase the assets for 5.5 million to start a new co.

    Phil, may I be one of the first to thank you for your work, perseverence and dignity in dealing with this subject for the last 3 years, putting up with the abuse – and if past form is anything to go by – the physical threats from the Rangers support. This has been the best entertainment I’ve seen on the web in years. I salute you, I salute resolute dignity, professionalism and journalistic integrity and I salute the internet for making this platform for truth available to the likes of me. Ta. Now, where’s the shampers :)
