Cambell Ogilvie hopes to speak to Charles Green.

Recommended Posts

had read somewhere that not one former rangers player talked to any investigation about duel contracts.

you have to wonder how information was come by.

and how Campbell Ogilvie was kept protected from it, and still in a job.

no doubt the sfa would love it if Ogilvie could persuade charlie to keep schtum and stop rocking the boat.

hope charlie tells him to get fucked.

Lamont also claiming SFA saying title stripping was "worst case scenario" which was what Green asked for

did the SFL ask for that too, before THEY rejected it ?


Bill Miller didn't ask for a "worst case scenario" but guess what scenario he got?

Is this an admission of guilt by the SFA......would appear liewell and co are in all sorts of trouble,now they wish to discuss !!!!......how we misunderstood their olive branch

I trust we give Ogilvie short shrift, and tell him to pass on in unequivocal terms we shall meet at the "Court of Session"......

Lost for words and were is the SFA statement.......

I believe we have them over a barrel to coin a phrase.......enjoy and goodnight. (Shanghai).......waiting for their move for days...that's their best shot.

SFA president Campbell Ogilvie admits he has not done his job properly for the last six months because of his previous involvement with Rangers.

The former Ibrox company secretary was employed by the club from 1978 until 2005, when he joined Hearts (SFL3 feeder club).

Due to his past connections with Rangers, Ogilvie has not participated in any meetings or discussions during what has been a turbulent time for the Glasgow giants and Scottish football as a whole.

Ogilvie now wants to hold talks with Light Blues chief executive Charles Green so that all parties can move on.

One of the outstanding issues yet to be resolved is a Scottish Premier League-appointed commission hearing, set to take place next month, into alleged undisclosed payments made by Rangers to players in relation to the use of Employee Benefit Trusts (EBTs) from 2000 to 2011.

Green has claimed the SPL "were looking to trade SPL status for an admission of guilt on EBTs and a sanction of stripped titles" before his newco Rangers were denied entry to the top flight and voted into the Third Division in the summer.

Speaking at today's William Hill Scottish Cup third-round draw, Ogilvie said: "Because of my involvement previously with Rangers, I didn't take part in any of the discussions.

"I haven't attended any meetings whatsoever. My understanding is that the group looking to take over Rangers had asked for all possible scenarios to be put on the table.

"That's as far as I'm aware and I can't comment further quite simply because I wasn't party to any of the meetings.

"If I'm totally blunt, I believe in the last six months, in many ways, I haven't been doing my job properly because I couldn't take part in the debate.

"That's bothered me, I must admit, but there was no alternative to that.

"It's been a difficult time for everyone in Scottish football.

"It was difficult for me for different reasons. I couldn't even take part in the debate and that's why I'm saying I haven't been fulfilling my duties properly if I'm totally honest.

"Having said that, there was no way I could have taken part in the debate."

He added: "Now, things are up and running, and I would like to sit down and speak to Charles Green.

"I thought it was better after the summer to let the dust settle but, as president, I believe I have a role to play in trying to bring things together and moving forward for the future.

"That's not just relative to Rangers, it's in any situation with any club."

A tax tribunal is expected to deliver the long-awaited verdict in the so-called 'big tax case' this month, with the soon-to-be-liquidated Rangers disputing a claim by Her Majesty's Revenue and Customs in relation to their use of EBTs.

Ogilvie has previously admitted he was aware of, and indeed, a member of, the controversial EBT scheme at Rangers, but has claimed he was not responsible for the drafting or administering of player contracts since the mid-90s.

Asked if his position at the SFA will become untenable should Rangers be found guilty of wrong-doing, he said: "Until we know the outcome, I can't comment any further than I have already done.

"I've tried to be upfront throughout this process. Really, we have to see what the outcome is.

"I don't see that it should make any difference to the way I operate, but I think it's only fair that we hear the outcome of both that tribunal and the SPL tribunal.

"I'd like to see what the outcome is first of all. You've got to remember at the time, when these were operated, they were perfectly legal, if operated correctly.

"So let's see what comes out of it. Further down the line, we will just have to wait and see.

"If there was a feeling that it was causing an issue, then I would have to discuss that with the Association."

Is this the writing on the wall for O 'Regan? Maybe CO has said feck the CEO , I need to as SFA President step up and fix what that clown has created. Maybe some member clubs in the SFL are working behind the scenes to outset SR? By admitting he hasn't done a thing for 6 months sounds to me he is saying "Hoi ! Regan. No more"When he worked at Hearts (SFL3 feeder club) , I am sure CO would have an insight to their ways of paying (or as the case is now, not paying) players. Wonder if he knows what Green knows and other clubs could be fingered soon for dual contracts?
