There were two Rangers related cases being heard in court in London today.

 

SDI v Rangers in the continuing retail rights saga.

 

...... and perhaps more interestingly

 

Sevco 5088 v Green & Ahmad

 

I don't know how they have gone but "John James" was apparently in attendance. He has give a teaser in a tweet:

"Sevco 5088 allegations must be seen to be believed. Please revert to https://johnjamessite.com/; for details. Exclusive."

 

Sadly, the arch plagiarist has put his court updates in a password protected blog.  He obviously doesn't want to share his insider knowledge.

Had a wee chuckle at that. I stopped reading his diatribes after he moaned his face off about Naismith taking out Broony a while back.  He's never stopped going on about it - weird for a supposed Rangers fan.

Thinks he’s a Celtic fan who now says he supports Morton due to the sectarianism of TGFITW.

Yeah I noticed him trotting out the Morton angle. 

 

I had a go at him about slagging off Naismith for one tackle (on Broony) when Broony had made a career out of crippling tackles inflicted every week about which he had said zilch.  He then banned  me and slagged me off on the website saying if you don't contribute you don't get to have a go - so i went back on and called him a liar saying I'd supported his poxy site since  he went AWOL to his bolt hole (which he knew full well) .  The guy is a liar and a fantasist.

There is a report on the "Switcheroo" case in today's Daily Record.

 

https://www.dailyrecord.co.uk/news/scottish-news/craig-whyte-sevco-firm-wins-14337292

 

Reading the article, I'm unsure about the current status of Sevco 5088's £5.1m claim.  It seems that Sevco 5088 was granted a default judgement against Green and Ahmad earlier this year.

 

However, Sevco 5088 also appears to have agreed to have that judgement set aside, but has been awarded legal costs for their involvement.

 

I am left not knowing if the case has now ended or will be subject to a new trial of the facts now that Ahmad has acknowledged the claim.

Reading between the lines I suspect that this is just a load of excrement for the purposes of selling season tickets as the Orcs will lap it up and this will fill the rather empty coffers for another few months to keep the lights on at Ibroke.

 

They may also go down the route of selling the stadium rights name "again" and cal it iBrox. Remember that little carrot from a few seasons ago.

 

It appears that the saying

"You can fool all of the people some of the time but you cannot fool all of the people all of the time"

does not apply to The Rangers supporters as Dave King appears to be able to

"Fool all of Ra peepel some of the time and he can also fool all of Ra peepel all of the time"

Is the this the same Rangers who reduced everybody's allocation, including Celtic, so they could sell more home tickets. The hypocrisy knows no bounds with that filth.

Yup. Comes across as a very mixed up guy. Until you realise that he is indeed a Celtic fan, a liar and a fantasist. Then it all makes sense.

Same with me - most of his inside information... etc is absolute bollocks. 

 

I got him telt a while back about not being down the middle (sit on the fence) as he likes to assert and he couldn’t handle it. It is so obvious that he is a Celtic fan - he absolutely hates Naismith with a passion and loves to portray him as some sort of thug in the mould of Vinnie Jones, but doesn’t say anything when Brown behaves in the same way. 

 

It wouldn’t surprise me if it was him who wrote the Celtic statement condemning sectarian chanting against v Aberdeen last Sunday - where Celtic fans were “the real victims” and not Derek McInnes.

"Rangers might even say 'we won't come and play at Rugby Park any more'. And that would be a big loss financially for Kilmarnock and that would be Rangers paying them back for what they're doing to them."

So because they don't get a majority of the tickets despite it being an away game for them, they might not turn up. Good luck with that. GS is a wiggy tool.

I'm sure Killie would be happy enough to take the 6 points without having to kick a ball.

Not sure sevco would cope so well with the deduction of points for failing to fulfil their fixtures

So, Big Mike gave Sevco a doing in court yesterday, I can see an application for money being ring fenced as Robertson admitted they don't have the funds to settle the case. Zombies better get renewing to pay these damages. 

 

And.. Sevco 5088 awarded pre trial costs vs Sevco Scotland tells you there is some serious shit coming down the newco pipe. Contingent liability my dear Sevconians. That's why your motley mob cannot raise a dime in the city.

Incredible isn't it! He no doubt got an EBT through a proxy or something...

 

I guess Rangers are concerned that their away allocation cuts is becoming a growing tend as other clubs realise they are there for the taking on the pitch.

 

Hopefully we join the club again limiting the OF to two sections of the Roseburn. Even if we don't sell out, I don't care if there is a small financial cost.

And that is one of the many reasons their interim accounts was restricted to the six months P& l. Look forward to the full audited year end version which I suspect might be qualified

The "contingent liability" has been in the Rangers accounts for several years. (this is from the 2018 accounts)

 

Independent Investigation
On 15 April 2013, the Board of RIFC plc announced that it was commissioning an independent examination and report
relating to allegations made by Craig Whyte, the previous owner of Rangers Football Club plc, concerning RIFC’s
then Chief Executive and Commercial Director.

:

:

On 28 May 2013, a further letter before claim was sent to (inter alia) The Rangers Football Club Limited and Rangers
International Football Club plc on behalf of Craig Whyte, Aidan Earley and (purportedly) Sevco 5088 Limited. The
Board is of the view that the claims set out in the letter before claim are entirely unsubstantiated based on legal
advice received to date by the Board and the outcome of the Investigation. This letter is now 64 months old and
despite press reports no further correspondence or information in respect of this matter has been received in that
time.

 

At that time in 2013, the chief exec was Charles Green and the Commercial Director was Imran Ahmad. However the action  heard in court earlier in the week was Sevco 5088 against Green and Ahmad personally rather than the Newco. It relates to the "switcheroo", when it is alleged that the assets were transferred to Sevco Scotland (now TRFCL) at Green's (and Ahmad?) request, thus shafting Sevco 5088 (and Whyte?) in the process. The claim is for £5.1m.

 

With regard to Sports Direct, I'm only aware of JJ and PMGB suggesting that TRFC got a doing in court. Probably best to wait the few weeks until the judge makes his decision known before going down that road.

I don't know about that case although there was another hearing in London earlier this week. However, another case has resurfaced with Rafat Rizvi claiming that Rangers still owes him money from the financing of the Newco.

Absolutely appalling decision. The SFA have absolutely no backbone whatsoever when dealing with the Old Firm and only exist to appease them.

That company has been dormant for over a year.  It effectively stopped trading when Ashley to King that he would have to stump up £3m to get out of the old retail agreement.

 

Rangers subsequently broke the contractual terms of the new agreement and that dispute is still going through the court system.

Guessing this is a ploy as above to avoid Sports Direct cancel contract claim they don’t exist. From personal experience there is too many links to the continuation of a company to be able to get away with that.

No ploy on this occasion RRL was wound up as part of the agreement that ended the old retail contract. £3m to Ashley, plus another £2m for his shares in RIFC.

 

TRFC will be hoping that the judge is lenient about the level of damages awarded to SDI for TRFC breaking the terms of the new "matching" agreement. That decision should be made public in the next few days or weeks.
