    • Was Lord Nimmo sagte:

      RANGERS FC 1872.


      It will be recalled that in Article 2 "Club" is defined in terms of "the undertaking of an association football club", and in Rule I1 it is defined in terms of an association football club which is, for the time being, eligible to participate in the League, and includes the owner and operator of such Club. Taking these definitions together, the SPL and its members have provided, by contract, that a Club is an undertaking which is capable of being owned and operated. While it no doubt depends on individual circumstances what exactly is comprised in the undertaking of any particular Club, it would at the least comprise its name, the contracts with its players, its manager and other staff, and its ground, even though these may change from time to time.
      In common speech a Club is treated as a recognisable entity which is capable of being owned and operated, and which continues in existence despite its transfer to another owner and operator. In legal terms, it appears to us to be no different from any other undertaking which is capable of being carried on, bought and sold. This is not to say that a Club has legal personality, separate from and additional to the legal personality of its owner and operator. We are satisfied that it does not, and Mr McKenzie did not seek to argue otherwise.

    • Another clear indication about our continued history by an official source:

      SFL Statement

      On behalf of everyone at the Scottish Football League I would like to add my sincere congratulations to Rangers on Achieving this magnificant milestone in the club's history.

      Rangers have brought great honour and distinction to Scottish football throughout these 140 years and the club has risen to every challenge it has faced.

      There is something rather poignant that after 140 years the club is once again a member of the organisation it helped found in 1890 and we are honoured and proud to have Rangers in the league.

      To everyone involved in the club and its remarkable and loyal fans Happy Anniversary.

      David Longmuir
      Chief Executive

    • Die Firma und der Klub ... rechtlich auseinandergenommen von "Walter Tull" (FF), da ein HH meinte, er müsse das aus seiner Sicht erklären:

      I'm not generally moved to make comments on news articles but I felt it important to correct you on a couple of points.

      "RFC became a limited company in 1899 as you say. This was done to protect the directors from personal liability arising from running the club. Later became a PLC when shares were offered to the public. The club were not bought by RFC Ltd. They BECAME RFC Ltd and then BECAME RFC PLC. The club and changing methods of ownership remained one entity with one company number at companies house. This single company is now in the process of liquidation."

      You are correct that by creating a limited company the directors are effectively "ring-fencing" themselves from claims by creditors in the event that the company becomes insolvent. However this also works in reverse, in as much as the assets, whilst owned are held separate from the company. Assets are "used" to generate a profit for the company. If these assets are mismanaged then they do not generate a sufficient profit and the company becomes in solvent. However in this case the assets remain for the benefit of creditors or whosoever takes over the management of these assets. In the case of Rangers the assets are the stadium, the players, the brand and the goodwill which would include Rangers history, as without this there is no goodwill. You can't argue therefore that the Rangers "BECAME" anything as a result of the change in the company. The assets have always been the same. In other words, the Stadium, the players, the brand and the loyalty of the support are the assets that are "used" to generate a profit and cash flow for the company. These never die.

      The "assets" as you know do not have a number at Companies house because they are not a Company.

      "Perhaps Empire can explain why the SFA had to TRANSFER the membership. Surely if it's the same club there would have been no need to transfer membership."

      I'm not sure how this is an argument for a loss of history. If the SFA had to "ISSUE" a new membership to Rangers then you might have a point. A transfer, e.g. Home Ownership, Share Holding, etc. implies the continuation of the underlying asset, not the creation of a new one.

      I think the struggle here is the conflation of ownership with existence. Clearly Rangers like any club has had many owners over its 140 year history. However these people move on (they die, they become insolvent) however the Club (not the company) remains in perpetuity, i.e. exists, for as long as it fulfils its purpose which is the provision of sports entertainment.

      On a serious note, it is this kind of thing Rangers PR should be on top of wherever and whenever it appears in the media. It's not that difficult employ someone to monitor the daily press and respond accordingly. We have to fight fire with fire but it's left to us most of the time.

    • The Rangers 'Swifts'

      The Rangers reserve (or 'A') team - originally known as the Swifts - are Scotland's most succesful reserve team. Their colours were red and black vertical strips (ala AC Milan) which represented Govan.

      The 'blue ribbon' event of the Reserve team calendar was the Second XI Cup. Rangers have won the trophy 25 times - nearly double than their nearest rivals (Hearts). They have amassed over 40 various Reserve league titles which is still more than any other club.

    • Crowds too impatient

      Bill Struth,74, hits out, 'Crowds too impatient'

      Mr Struth, 74, who receives a presentation today from The Rangers players to mark the occasion of his retirement as manager of the club yesterday hit out at the spectators.

      "Maybe modern football does not appeal to the crowds", said Mr Struth "But I wonder if they take into account all that a club has to contend with"

      "Why, the war isnt over yet. This conscription business has sabotaged the dreams and plans of every football manager time and again."

      It is Mr Struths view that the customers are not necessarily always right. For instance they dont always make allowances for all the obstacles to team building.

      They are impatient and many of the younger ones who make most noise dont always appreciate the science of the game.

      Mr Struth says this to the people on the terraces; "Criticise as you will,boo jeer and jibe as so called Scotland Supporters have done to their own players in the Norwegian game. But remember Football is in the blood of the nation. It is Scotlands game and it will out."

      Does Scotland or any Scottish club require star players to make them successful? Is the need urgent ?

      Mr Struth laughs that one off, "Why" he said, "We had eleven cast off players at Ibrox at one time and they all helped us to reach the final of the Scottish Cup in 2 different years.

      "It was all a matter of blending them to win, our style at Ibrox and a very good blend it was".

      One more question to Bill Struth. Who was Rangers greatest ever? Here is the answer; "They were all great or at least I thought so".

      "Immediately a boy signed a form for us and honoured it off the field as well as on the field, he was made. I wouldnt like to individualise for after all Rangers were always a team".

      And therein lies the secret of Rangers who until this season had been brimming over with complete success - team spirit.

    • We're the one constant in the clubs existence. Its lifeblood and its living breathing heartbeat from the cradle to the grave. Win, lose, or draw - I'm a Rangers fan: was born one, live as one and fully intend to die as one. In between it is an honour and a privilege to be part of the greatest and most unique footballing institution in the world.

      That is why WE ARE THE PEOPLE

    • Die schottische Presse war schnell zur Hand, als es nach dem letzten Remembrance Sunday eine Mitteilung des kommandierenden Offiziers der Streitkräfte in Schottland gab, der die Art und Weise "unterbinden wollte". So die Presse.

      Anfragen beim Hauptquartier der Armee stellten jedoch klar, daß die schottisch Presse wieder nur die halbe Wahrheit geschrieben hatte.

    • Old Rangers poem in tribute to the Iron Curtain (Re 1950 World cup in Brazil)

      It was written in reference to the belief that many Rangers fans (my old man included) felt that more or less the Rangers side that year should have been selected to represent Scotland in their World cup decider against England to take part in the World cup in Brazil.

      Incredibly Scotland were invited to take part as runners up but turned it down as the SFA selectors felt it was only right to attend as British Champions.

      Scotland lost the match 1-0 to England

      the side that were chosen to play were _

      Cowan (Morton), Young, Cox, McColl and Woodburn (all Rangers), Forbes (Arsenal), Waddell (Rangers), Moir (Bolton), Bauld (Hearts), Steel (Derby), Liddell (Liverpool)
