Rangers likely to be liquidated and forced out of Europe

Rangers FC will effectively be forced out of Europe for three years after facing the inevitable prospect of liquidation. A statement issued by the club's administrators said:

We have been informed by HMRC they will not support the proposal for a Company Voluntary Arrangement at the meeting of creditors on Thursday, June 14.

The consequence of the rejection of a CVA outcome is that sanctions will be applied to the Club by UEFA and that the Club will not be able to participate in Europe for three years and the new company will need the consent of the other SPL clubs to the transfer of the share in the SPL, in order for Rangers to continue playing in the SPL.

– Duff and Phelps, administrators of Rangers Football Club
