Sadly, unless the authorities get a grip on footballers wages a lot more of this is going to be seen.Football and the associated agent,player greed is totally ruining the competitive game,the supporter of the smaller club irrespective of how well its run are the most hard done by as they are geared for empty trophy cabinets
As in F1 racing the grid has been set with the present table positions at the end of last season,pretty much how the premier league is going to look from now on.The new fair play rules simply entrench the top clubs where they are.
From 4th place down all the clubs are cannon fodder existing only to feed the voracious appetite of the Man U`s and Sky television.We were lucky in that our name is on that league title cup, and I`m pretty sure we were the last of the fairytale winners.
This talk of super leagues is a load of crap.It basically will come across as an international fixture that the players and agents can make a shed load more money from.
the Scottish game is a perfect example,Rangers showed all the greed that is present in the top echelon of the prem league, the problem though was the limited amount of competitive clubs to feed their coffers.Their gates are double ours ,virtually every year they played champions league football plus they also have the Sky money and yet they couldn`t pay the bills,all because of greed.
The only way to save football and to truly allow all fans to dare to dream is to introduce wage caps,and some sort of draft system that is far more transparent.All earnings should be channelled into a communal pot and shared evenly between clubs.
Imagine how great it would be to have at least a dozen clubs competing evenly for the title every year,it truly would bring the passion and absolute joy back to the game and at the same time all round financial stability.

I hope Rangers are shafted.

Nobody cares about the plight of Rovers, so why should I feel sympathy for any other club?

Maybe if you did for them, they would care more for Rovers?

At least the Rangers fans have enjoyed success under the owners that have shafted them. Not to mention they cheated for that success.

What have we enjoyed under this shower?

My point being Exciled is that I wouldn't wish this on any set of fans..even those at the cobbled end of the M65.

When the club is sold does this include the players or is it just the physical assets? I was wondering about this from three views:

The club was sold for 5.5m. I can't name a single player but assume the squad is worth more than this. The administrator has a legal duty to raise as much cash as possible. Surely the players should have been transferred to raise cash?

The players are contracted to the old club, are those contracts void as the club no longer exists?

If a player's contract was with the defunct club does the new one actually have a team?

Maybe TUPE will apply?

Footballers have a lot of power these days but not all of them are fortunate enough to have loads of offers to go elsewhere. Some will be desperately hoping they will still have a job. You have to hand it to people like McCoist for sticking around throughout all this.

A lot will depend on the SPL vote.

No set of fans deserve whats happening at rangers but alot of the success that they enjoyed was down to the club essentially cheating.
Over recent years several of the weaker teams started improving only for rangers to buy up key players with money they didn't realy have.
Its a hard one and everyone knows similar things are going on in other leagues its just a case of catching the cheaters.
You would have to be cold blooded not to feel for the fans though.

Voted into division 3.
Best thing for football in Scotland.
Just a shame the exchequer is £100m lighter.
I hope they continue to pursue the staff and players of "oldco" who owe tax.

Very pleased at that outcome. The rest of them will regret it. In 4 years time Rangers will be the strongest club financially in the whole of Scottish football. The rest of them are complete idiots for allowing this to happen.

I've done a bit of digging and (thanks to WSC) there's an excellent article here

on the finances of the Scottish TV deal

And how it's currently undervalued.

It's a league with only four 'major' games a season. It's not undervalued, it's just crap.

I'm a Celtic fan. I take no pleasure in what has happened to Rangers. The club deserves what has happened. The fans don't.
Certainly not when you've got Liberia's deficit in your Sky Rocket!

It's a crap, uninspiring, uncompetative, anti football and anti football supporter format that media money has recreated right across most of Europe.

No offence Roy but I'm sure Scottish football supporters would be better served if the same happened to your lot too.
