Rangers are facing a legal bill after a Scottish FA panel judged they should pay the expenses of five former players they were in contract disputes with.

Sone Aluko, Kyle Lafferty, Steven Naismith, Jamie Ness and Allan McGregor all quit the club when it was placed into liquidation last year.

The players refused to transfer their contracts from the old company to the new one, which the club challenged.

The SFA insists Rangers should pay all legal bills relating to the dispute.

It's just getting ridiculous now! They are always banging on about building bridges, moving on and getting Scottish football back on track! How can that happen when every week they are attacking us or claiming against us! I'm growing so tired of it all!

So the SFA have made their opinion known, but what would the courts say?

Also, what exactly do the SFA have to do with this? Isn't it between Rangers and the players? and if so wouldn't we obviously pay the bill?

Surely we are only Liable for costs in the event of a dispute if we lost the case?

If we lost the cases then why did we recieve fee's for the likes of Davis?

More to it than meets the eye, still can't see how they can bill the club for attempting to hold onto it's assets, especially as they made us pay all football debts, kind of smacks of double standards here, you will pay all your oldco'd football debts but all your players can fuck off if they want and we will bill you for that aswell??

Fucking mental.

So, the SPL looking for legal fees and now the SFA doing the same. More of an open anti-Rangers agenda. Shameless really, as well as pathetic. Two so-called football authorities disgracefully grubbing about with a bowl demanding money. Another short statement dismissing the claim might be the response from Rangers. On the other hand it provides a handy platform for Rangers (and Charles) to have a real go at the SFA. It's credibility in managing football in Scotland is wretched and arguably at a level of compentence well, well below what should be expected from a national football governing body. At some point in time I reckon Charles and the Rangers Board will say enough is enough and start to set out far more directly the Rangers view of the way football affairs in Scotland in the last year or so have been managed, and maybe even start to demand changes of personnell at the very top of the SFA if credibility in that organisation is to start to be restored. And if the SFA has continued to withhold money due to Rangers, then maybe simply issuing a writ for payment should be issued.
