Beitrag Oh, the Rangers are bust ...
from the Daily Telegraph:

Own goal: one SPL chairman said of Malcolm Murray: "The arrogance was unbelievable. The atmosphere hardened immediately. Charles Green conducted himself well enough but the Rangers chairman was arrogant and dogmatic."
The expectation beforehand within the SPL – shared by the Scottish Football Association – was that the outcome would be another deferral, leaving it to the Scottish Football League clubs to accept Rangers into their ranks and sparing the top division chairmen from a decision they did not want to make.

There were also some who hoped that Rangers would be able to make sufficient case – coupled with a clear and evident change of attitude – for their admission to the SPL.

However – and not for the first time in this saga – Rangers utterly misread the mood of the other SPL clubs. The faux pas occurred despite the fact that Rangers had been briefed at a meeting on Sunday attended by two other SPL chairmen and a vice-chairman, who stressed the need for humility.

Murray, in blazer and club tie, arrived at the gathering on Wednesday with the frontman for the Sevco consortium, Charles Green – who did not sport the club’s uniform – and Ally McCoist, the Ibrox manager. A presentation brochure was distributed to the delegates.

The back page featured a photograph of a Rangers title win with the words “We Are Rangers” emblazoned across

“The arrogance was unbelievable,” said one chairman. “The atmosphere hardened immediately. Charles Green conducted himself well enough but the Rangers chairman was arrogant and dogmatic.”

Another who was present told The Daily Telegraph: “Some people in the room wanted a reason to make a case for Rangers but the standard of the presentation was woeful.

“Ally and Charles Green were not always on the same page but that was not damaging. The chairman was another matter entirely and the brochure was substandard – you could have easily knocked something better together given half an hour. It makes you wonder what kind of management team they have.”

Murray, Green and McCoist absented themselves from the meeting to allow discussion, then returned for the vote and cast theirs as a proxy for Duff & Phelps, administrators of the Rangers oldco.

Only Michael Johnston of Kilmarnock gave them any sort of support with an abstention, while the other 10 clubs – including those who had expressed a degree of willingness to help Rangers, voted ‘No’ to the newco’s admission.

The Rangers party departed and a further two-hour discussion ensued. “It was constructive,” said one who took part. “People actually listened to one another and respected the other positions. It was a huge leap of faith for integrity and it’s now up to the SFA and SFL to make their decision.”

Neil Doncaster, the SPL chief executive, said of the decision to refuse the newco entry: “Clearly there were discussions going on between the newco and the members and ultimately that could have led to a presentation and a proposal put to clubs that they might have said yes to.

“In the end the proposal put forward to the clubs was considered and they said no.”

He added: “I think [the vote] surprised a number of people. Money is important in professional football and I think what our chairmen have done today is put aside the short-term commercial considerations, that would ordinarily drive behaviour, ahead of the longer-term interests of their clubs – and supporter involvement has clearly been a huge part of that.

“Ultimately they believe they have made the right decision and one that brings a bit more clarity to an unclear world. Until we know where Rangers are playing next year we won’t be able to ascertain what the damage is to the Scottish game.

“A number of people have said the decision today has enhanced the reputation of the league but it’s not for me to say.”

Celtic released a statement in which they expressed the integrity of Scottish football as the main reason behind their opposition of newco Rangers entering the SPL.

It read: “Today’s decision to refuse access into the SPL was an overwhelming one and demonstrates the depth of feeling amongst everyone involved in Scottish football.

“Fundamentally, the Celtic Board has also been very mindful of the need to take what it believes to be the correct course of action in protecting the integrity of the game in Scotland.

“Throughout the whole sequence of events leading up to today’s decision the Celtic Board has been of the singular view that the integrity of the game in Scotland is of paramount importance.”

The Rangers Supporters’ Trust, meanwhile, accused other SPL clubs of acting out of “malice”.

Mark Dingwall, as spokesman for the Trust, said: “We are disappointed but not surprised by this decision which has been taken out of malice rather than for the greater good of the Scottish game."

Man sollte sich einmal klarmachen, dass der Rangersvorstand durch massiven Steuerbetrug sich Vorteile in der Verpflichtung von Spielern erschlichen hat, dadurch zu Titelgewinnen kam und jetzt so auftritt.

Und dann spricht ein Mark Dingwall (m.E. sowieso ein ziemlicher Idiot) von "Bosheit" der anderen Clubs.

Zur Erläuterung, soweit ich alles verstanden habe:

Es gibt die SPL (Scottish Premier League) und dann 3 Ligen der SFA (Scottish Football Asc.). Die Rangers (newco - neue Gesellschaft) hat sich um eine Lizenz für die SPL beworben. Dies wurde mit 10 : 1 Stimmen der anderen Vereine abgelehnt.

Es gibt keine Regelungen hinsichtlich der Einordnung in die oberen Ligen der SFA. Es ist vielmehr so, dass man eine Lizenz erwerben muß und dann ggf. in der dritten SFA - Liga anfangen kann. Diese Lizenzen sind aber nur verfügbar, wenn ein anderer Club seine Lizenz aufgibt. Außerdem soll es noch andere Bewerber auf eine Lizenz geben, die schon früher angefragt haben.

Um die Rangers jetzt in eine SFA - Liga zu bekommen, müsste mithin ein wenig gemauschelt werden.

Die TV - Gelder sind auch in Schottland ein wichtiger Posten. Wichtigstes Spiel ist das Glasgower Derby (mindestens 4x in der Saison). Findet dieses nicht statt, kann es dazu kommen, dass die TV - Einnahmen erheblich weniger werden.

Auch einer der beiden Saisonhöhepunkte durch den Besuch der beiden Glasgower Platzhirsche entfällt und die damit verbundenen Einnahmen.

Der Vorstand von Celtic hat erklärt, dass sie auch ohne das Derby leben können. Wie es bei den anderen Clkubs aussieht ... keine Ahnung, Jedenfalls wurden diese teilweise von den eigenen Fans bedrängt der newco keine Lizenz für die SPL zu geben.
