The following is an extract from an Auldheid article:
Nota Bene: During the initial meeting, prior to the AGM in November 2016 at which agreement with the PLC was reached to adjourn the resolution, we were advised by Celtic PLC CEO Mr Peter Lawwell that if we provided a “silver bullet” he would fire it.
1. Application for a UEFA licence is required before 31st March and on that date in RFC’s published accounts they state they had a “potential” tax liability and “discussions are continuing with HMRC to establish a resolution to the assessments raised.” Neither was the case.
6. Stewart Regan, by way of a written letter in December 2011, informed the Celtic CEO that after the Licence was granted on 31st March, all discrepancies and matters of noncompliance were the sole responsibility of the UEFA (CFCB) monitoring team. It now transpires that Mr Regan in writing to the Celtic CEO:
6.1 Provided Mr Lawwell with the wrong date regarding the grant of the licence.
6.2 Failed to mention the licence had been granted on 19th April.
6.3 Failed to mention the grant of the licence had been intimated to UEFA on 26th May.
6.4 Failed to mention the SFA were responsible to report all licence breaches and other matters to UEFA before the end of season 2011/12.
6.5 Failed to mention during the season of 2011/12 the SFA determined RFC NO LONGER complied with the terms of the licence granted, offering no explanation or update as to when or on what grounds RFC eventually failed to comply.
I refer readers to point 6.5. When Messengers At Arms arrived at Ibrox in August 2011, Ogilvie, Regan and Dickson knew that the jig was up. Colour me surprised that they belatedly came to the conclusion that Rangers were no longer compliant. They were never compliant in the first instance,
When Regan approached Dickson and Russell looking for an ‘out’ he was informed unequivocally that if he released his proposed statement, the SFA would also be damaged. Did Regan defer to Dickson to get Rangers’ UEFA application over the line? Did Dickson falsely represent the situation at Rangers?
This on the evidence of Dickson’s testimony to the FTT, as released by the RTC blogger, would appear to be the case. Dickson admitted to drafting EBT contracts and misleading players on their tax liability. Dickson knew full well that the EBTs were instruments to disguise remuneration.
Dickson admitted to having a file containing all the information concerning DOS/VSS and its successor EBT.
This file went missing, presumed shred.
Auldheid’s article is indicative of Regan lying to a member club to cover his complicity in a fraudulent UEFA Licence application.
In his most recent correspondence to Lawwell, Regan asserts that there would be no point revisiting the systemic tax evasion as there would be no guarantee of success and that the tariffs for bringing the game into disrepute at that time would be limited.
However senior counsel capitulated on the fraudulent UEFA application and this has now been referred to the SFA’s Compliance Officer for consideration.
Regan admits that the evidence of Sir Bribe & Lie at Craig Whyte’s trial materially. contradicted their received wisdom at that time.
Regan should not be allowed to pin this exclusively on Ogilvie and Dickson. Regan is one of their concert party.
If the SFA don’t have teeth as Regan would have us believe, then they will fall prey to a beast much higher up the food chain, namely a Judicial Review.
The Resolution 12 capitulation is a sop. These corrupt individuals are on the ropes. I want a full knockout but I will accept a three knock down TKO. Blue Pound Apologists like Stewart Milne, pressed into action by Regan and with one eye on selling houses to The Klan, should be removed from office forthwith.
We can see right through Regan’s strategy and his use of Milne as a pawn.
