So not only do Glasgow Rangers poorly run football club owe in Excess of 134 Million pounds, the fans have decided to Boycott away games next season and the Scottish cup because they cannot sign players over the age of 17 for one season.
Let’s be realistic they have got away lightly, what will happen is that they will have the majority of their debts written off and may pay back 10p in every pound which is the norm and in 2 year’s time everything will be back to normal.
But what about those clubs who run there club correctly and within the financial restraints that allow them to survive. I’m sure that when those clubs dealt with the great Glasgow Rangers they never dreamed of being forced to accept a lesser payment but that is what potentially face Dunfermline Athletic with who they still owe £83,370 or Inverness Caledonian Thistle £39,805 I am sure these clubs thought well don’t worry we only really want a tenth of the money back ( yea right ) To a lesser extent they still owe Hearts £800,000, Dundee United £65,981, Celtic £40,337 and also to clubs in England and Abroad.
The shear self-indulgence and short term vision is what staggers me most of all and to go with that the total lack of intelligence from the Rangers supporters assembly who seem intent on punishing the smaller clubs further.
Much of a smaller clubs revenue comes from match days and if Rangers boycott the away games that will leave a big hole in their pockets.
To add to this boycotting the cup has been sounded out so a non-league club or a lower division club battle to get through each year in the hope of drawing Rangers or Celtic for that chance to play in the fantastic stadiums and then pocket gates receipts and possible TV revenue but all this hope/glory and financial gain is then put in jeopardy.
So before you make stupid statements and poorly advised decisions be thankful for what you have got and get on with it because that is what the rest of Scottish football do.
