In an exclusive for this site I can reveal that the following missive has been sent to all staff in a major retail bank. As I am unable to copy the original document I have chosen to transcribe it word for word:
” If any of the parties has a connection, kindly inform Arrestment Team Customer Delivery immediately by telephoning 01475- xxxxxx (I chose to withhold the full number).
Give details of types of accounts and securities held, quoting balances of any joint account holders.
If there is any doubt about the extent of funds to be attached, withdrawals should be stopped pending further instructions from Arrestment Team Customer Delivery.
The arrestments below are for £10k or over:
The Rangers Football Club Ltd
Other Details Known
Ibrox Stadium, 150 Edmiston Drive, Glasgow G51 2XD”
Oh deary, deary me. Some of the banking natives are growing restless. Blowpipes are being greased as I write. If an enterprising journalist wishes to contact me I will happily furnish them with the redacted phone number.
However if the word ‘investigative’ is a foreign field in a foreign country, then take pause. If one prefers to solicit Yuanker Traynor to offer his first draft on your reportage, then don’t be surprised should I spurn any purported journalistic curiosity.
Are we about to witness Sheriff Officers beating a well-worn path to Ibrox?
Is this just the tip of a veritable iceberg of bad debts that could sink HMS Sevco?
Will the captain go down with his ship, or has he done walKing away?
