67 players sue DeadCo over the handling of contracts


I'm certain that the Unseen Fenian Hand played a part in making it 67

quote:


Sixty-seven players are involved in legal action against Rangers over the handling of their contracts.

PFA Scotland has raised an employment tribunal claim, which Rangers say is on behalf of 67 unnamed players, relating to a failure "to inform and consult".

The action relates to the transfer of player contracts between the oldco and newco Rangers following the sale of the oldco's assets to Charles Green's consortium.

In addition, three former players Sone Aluko, Kyle Lafferty and Jamie Ness are taking Rangers to a separate employment tribunal over the circumstances that led to them leaving the club, citing "constructive dismissal".

STV understands both claims have been lodged with HM Courts and Tribunal Service in Glasgow, though no dates for hearings have yet been set.

Lawyer Donald MacKinnon explained the situation: " Where a company is sold or otherwise changes hands, there is an obligation on both the old company and the new company to consult with the affected staff.

"In this particular case, if there is a failure to consult with the affected staff then the player's representatives or the company or the employees' representatives can make a claim to an employment tribunal for that failure and the tribunal may award up to 90 day's pay for each affected employee.

"That is a sum that can be awarded against both oldco and newco and they are jointly liable for that."

A spokesman for the Ibrox club said: "Rangers position is that these claims are baseless and invalid and affect, in reality, a small number of players who left the club in the summer."

A consortium of businessmen led by Charles Green bought the assets of Rangers old company while it was in the hands of administrators. Player contracts were transferred to the new company under TUPE legislation when Mr Green’s consortium took control of the club.

However, several first team players refused to transfer their contracts and left for other clubs, a matter which has been taken to the Scottish Football Association for arbitration and will be heard next year.

Details of the claims being raised were detailed in a share prospectus issued by Rangers ahead of their stock market flotation.

In the prospectus, the Ibrox club challenged PFA Scotland’s right to bring a claim on behalf of 67 players and said it wants a pre-tribunal hearing to dismiss their claim.

Rangers also said that they will defend the separate claim by Aluko, Lafferty and Ness.

Why do you still post this crap? Do you think anyone actually gives a shit? Was it not enough to keep it in the Celtic thread?

Why would a story about a sports scandal involving ClubDead belong in a thread about Celtic?

It's important. I know that you hate me, but this is a massive scandal which throws the game into disrepute. If you're too obsessed with being angry with me to realize that, it's your loss and reflects poorly on you.

b/c Celtic needs Rangers in the SPL. Idiot Celtic fans can not get it trough their heads. Its not like in the EPL if a top club goes under the league will be fine. The SPL is two clubs.

No it put the SPL into a shite hole and its tv contracts.

i knew you would say that, its not the first time Celtic or Rangers have made the last 16. shite happens when teams from a lower league make it.

Typical out of touch Celtic fan response.

Us getting into the last 16 gave every SPL twice the amount of money they would get with DeadHun in the league. That's two years paid for already. League restructuring, with ZombieFC forced to work up from the bottom, would be a boost financially and experientially. As I've said many times before, only having one big club in the league helps safeguard the homegrown talent in the SPL. There's not an arms race, and this allows the clubs to keep their talent. And, as this UCL run has shown, the rest of Europe likes us.

The fact that you don't realize that you're delusional just goes to prove how delusional you really are.

you really suck at reading comprehension for a law school guy.

It was clear how some of the clubs reacted to the tv deal getting ripped apart how valuable they view Rangers. 4 old firm games = more tv money for the SPL no way to argue that.

Arms race in the SPL wtf are you talking about. A good Rangers is good for Celtic and vice versa.
