Someone like @deedle will be able to clarify but I am certain this will be about the so called ''Wee Tax Case'' wherby Murray had agreed to settle a bill with HMRC for a couple of million quid. When Craig Whyte bought the club for £1, one of the conditions of the sale was that he settled the ''Wee Tax Case'' with HMRC. Whyte got in the door, never paid a thing to HMRC right up until he put us into admin in February, all the while The Wee Tax Bill was accruing interest and penalties along with the ongoing Big Tax Case.I may not be 100% on this but my recollection is at the time of application this tax liability was in dispute or under discussion with a resolution to be expected.
I understand there are other clubs who at that time were in the same position with their relevant tax authorities.
Our tax bill may have eventually gone unpaid due to some of Murray's companies including the Rangers holding company going into liquidation.
The crucial point being at the time of the UEFA application the tax bill was not unpaid but under discussion with the authorities so was perfectly ligit.
Yep.There's a few panty wetters in here.
Remember the facts: it would cost hundreds of thousands of pounds to take this to CAS, risking UEFA intervention in the SFA, in order to fine us a few thousand pounds.
It is NOT going to happen.
I believe only punishment open to them was a fine of £5K or expulsion. Anyway we told them to ram it because 5 ways agreement was binding that no further action could or would be taken over Whytes tenure.100% certain.
Be it this or points deduction for our fans singing.
We are looking at a points deduction this season.
I suspect in Petrie's case, it was partially fuelled by what he saw as us 'stealing' their best players with money we shouldn't have had (in his eyes). He ran/runs Hibs parimoniously and the fact we took players like Murray, Thompson, Whittaker whilst exploiting the tax system rankled. They also saw the chance to redistribute the funds in the SPL without the blocking votes from us and them. They were shafted in that by Aberdeen siding with the scumRemind me, how many League runner-up spots did Hibs or DUtd get in our absence ?
