A LEADING Sevco fan has reported Ibrox investor Sandy Easdale to the financial authorities over alleged insider dealing. Mark Dingwall, former chairman of the Sevco Supporters Trust, claims Easdale made a paper profit from buying shares on the back of knowledge in a statement to the BBC to which he should not have been privy. Dingwall, moderator of the followfollow fan website, has written to the Stock Exchange, Financial Conduct Authority and Sevcos NOMAD Daniel Stewart asking them to investigate. In his correspondence, which has been seen by Record Sport. Dingwall also claims Easdale, who has a conviction for a £1.5million VAT fraud, is effectively acting as a shadow director of The Rangers International FC plc, the parent company of the football club. His brother James Easdale is a director of The Rangers International, but Sandy is chairman only of the Sevco football board. Dingwall was prompted to act after Sandy described the club’s finances in a BBC interview on April 24 as “fragile” ahead o ...
**Clark** Rangers fans turn heat on Somers Chris Jack Group Sports Writer Monday 28/04/2014 RANGERS fans today hit out at the 'utter lack of corporate governance' being enforced by chairman David Somers as pressure mounted on the under-fire board. Chief executive Graham Wallace issued a rebuke to shareholder Sandy Easdale last week over his comments that Rangers' financial position was 'fragile' and that the club would not survive a second administration. And the Union of Fans have now questioned why Easdale, who is not a member of the Rangers International Football Club plc board, was able to make such pronouncements just hours before Wallace revealed the details of his business review and attempted to distance the current hierarchy from the off-field problems at Ibrox. The UoF said: "We note Mr Wallace's criticism of previous boards. James Easdale sat on the previous board from July of last year. Is he now going to be removed? "Sandy Easdale became a de facto member of the previous board in September la ...
from ibrox noise A King-Sized Dilemma at Ibrox With the dust slowly settling over Thursday's tumultuous AGM, let us take a brief moment to digest the state of play at Ibrox; The Rangers (International Football Club PLC) board is comprised of Chief Executive Officer Graham Wallace, Non-Executive Chairman David Somers, Finance Director Brian Stockbridge, and the two Non-Executive directors James Easdale and Norman Crighton. The Rangers FC LTD company is chaired by Alexander "Sandy" Easdale alone. To clarify, the RIFCPLC is the company which controls Rangers Football Club as a business, while the RFCLTD is the sporting side controlled by significant shareholder Easdale. All the above were democratically voted by shareholders with exception of Sandy Easdale who is not a director of anything, just the chair of the limited company and 26.6% shareholder himself, making him the largest. That is a reasonable assessment of the situation as it now stands, with the four requisitioners P Murray, M Murray, Wilson and M ...
// J. Ally McCoist has put himself on a collision course with his Ibrox paymasters by proxying his shares to his local Rangers supporters club. McCoist has handed more than one million shares, just under three per cent of Rangers’ stock, to the Calderwood Loyal in East Kilbride. It’s understood McCoist is honouring a promise he made to club members when he first took control of the stakeholding last year. His late father was a member of the club and McCoist travelled with them many times to watch the Gers as a child. However, his decision has set the cat among the pigeons ahead of Thursday’s crucial agm as proxy vote will be used against the board. The East Kilbride club are members of the Rangers Supporters Association, who are against the re-election of finance director Brian Stockbridge and bus boss James Easdale. McCoist’s decision will further isolate him at boardroom level, having survived previous attempts by disaffected directors to get him out the door, as recently as the start of the se ...
Lee looks happy at Rangers Ally McCoist has been given assurances by senior officials at Rangers that he will not need to sell any of his best players in the January transfer window. Derek Johnstone Lee Wallace showed great loyalty by staying at Ibrox when other players were leaving And given Lee Wallace's clear affinity with the Ibrox club I would expect the left-back to remain where he is. Lee could easily have left the Glasgow giants along with many of his team-mates when the club dropped down to the bottom tier last summer. But, along with Lee McCulloch, he showed great loyalty and stayed. Having said that, every player is up for grabs at Rangers if the money is right. The SPFL League One leaders will not accept a bid of £1million for him. But if a club came in with a bid that was over the top it may be considered. I have, meanwhile, been baffled by the criticism Ally has been subjected to for not finalising his pay cut. Rangers have been run by two men - directors James Easdale and Brian Stockbridge ...
RANGERS' board rivals Paul Murray and Jim McColl told supporters they were open to the idea of fan involvement if they took control of the Ibrox club. Mr Murray, who helped lead the Blue Knights, which tried to take over the club when it was in administration last year, Mr McColl, the chairman of engineering group Clyde Blowers, and former Rangers chairman Malcolm Murray met fans' representatives in a meeting that lasted 2½ hours. It took place at Mr McColl's East Kilbride HQ. Members of three fans' groups, the Rangers' Supporters Assembly, Association and Trust, called for the talks to hear the Murrays and McColl plans for the club after the resignations of Ibrox chief executive Craig Mather and non-executive director Bryan Smart. Mr Mather and Mr Smart's departures last week leave just Brian Stockbridge and James Easdale on the club's board. The Evening Times reported yesterday that supporters said they had been given positive assurances about the club's future if Mr McColl and Paul Murray win their bo ...
Little Giant Ladders
FRAUDSTER JOINS BOARD. IN A NEW LOW FOR OUR CLUB THE boardroom power struggle has taken another twist at Ibrox, with Rangers confirming that a second Easdale brother has joined the football board. Together with his brother James, Sandy Easdale runs coach firm McGill's Buses and own a nominal share in the Scottish League 1 club. James Easdale has been confirmed as a board member for several weeks, while the appointment of brother Sandy has been mooted for some time as the boardroom power struggle continues at Ibrox. The appointment was confirmed in a statement to Companies House yesterday, Friday September 13. A controversial and contentious figure behind the scenes and among Rangers supporters, Sandy Easdale served 27 months in prison from 1997 for non-payment of VAT. Today, fans reacted with surprise and in some quarters anger to the news, with the Rangers Supporters Trust asking: "Why was Sandy Easdale appointed yesterday to the board of one of our companies yet nobody decided to mention it?" The appoi ...
Morgan Out Of Running In Board Battles Posted on June 7, 2013 by billmcmurdo The latest I am hearing on the boardroom shenanigans at Ibrox is that James Easdale may be appointed to the board but Chris Morgan is now out of the running. Furthermore, Malcolm Murray is likely to depart the board but I understand that Chairman Walter Smith wants to balance this bloodletting by ousting Financial Director Brian Stockbridge. Despite this, there are still plans to have an EGM to force Murray to go sooner, along with Phil Cartwell. I am led to believe that there is no foreseeable end to the boardroom squabbles engulfing the club at this time. With season tickets to be sold and team manager Ally McCoist desperately needing a stable environment to focus on building his squad for the next campaign, this is exactly what Gers fans don’t want to hear right now. My own take on this is very simple. The board seem to have the right blend of people already, with maybe one or two not contributing much and therefore replacea ...
From The Sun Bus tycoon becomes Rangers director... and Malcolm Murray stays James Easdale On board ... James will be named director Exclusive By CHRIS MUSSON Published: 7 hrs ago BUS tycoons the Easdale brothers marched into Ibrox yesterday for a summit with Walter Smith — and came out with a seat on the Rangers board. James Easdale, 42, who arrived with businessman brother Sandy, 45, is expected to be named as a club director in an official announcement today. However, under-fire ex-chairman Malcolm Murray will STAY on the board for now — despite efforts to oust him by a powerful group of shareholders. The deal was cut late last night and means a damaging extraordinary general meeting — a nightmare scenario for the club — will now NOT take place. Ibrox Showdown ... board met at Ibrox A source said: “There’s been a week of tense talks and it’s been agreed that James will become a director. This has to be great news for fans as it will bring some much-needed stability over the summer.” The ...
frances - Boardroom Battle Enters Next Phase Posted on June 5, 2013 by billmcmurdo Anxious shareholders are seeking to remove Malcolm Murray and Philip Cartmell from the Rangers board, replacing them with James Easdale and Chris Morgan. Blue Pitch Holdings want their own placemen on the Ranger board due to mounting concerns over spiralling costs at Ibrox. There is a feeling among certain shareholders that, with the removal of Charles Green and Imran Ahmad, there is a much more lax approach to spending, particularly on team matters. The fear is that profligate spending – particularly if it is unchecked – will result in Rangers being drawn back towards the sinkhole of financial ruin once more. So far these fears seem to have some substance, with Ally McCoist bringing in some new signings and talking of several more.However, it is early doors and no doubt some will be leaving Ibrox to help balance the books. Green and Ahmad were perceived to be the directors opposed to over-spending and had rigid budgeta ...
PICK YOUR SIDE, THE BATTLE IS ABOUT TO BEGIN HIS first ambition is to steady the ship. But there’s an iceberg dead ahead, Capt’n Smith. Because this fractured Rangers board and its new chairman have until Wednesday to unite behind fundamental decisions which may determine if this thing can be straightened up, or if it is listing on towards more white water and destructive waves. Indeed, Walter Smith has just 48 hours to find a way of quashing a hostile EGM which was called for by a coalition of shareholders, made up of the controversial Easdale brothers and Blue Pitch Holdings. They have demanded seats on a new-look board for James Easdale and Chris Morgan, two men who backed Charles Green’s regime with hard cash. They also want Malcolm Murray removed from the directors’ box along with Phil Cartmell, two men with whom Smith has sided. Which means one of four possible outcomes: 1) The Easdale/Blue Pitch camp back down, withdrawing their demands now Murray has been deposed and Smith is at the helm. ...
