May be a lesson to clubs in England that living outside of their means will leave them exposed to this sort of thing eventually. More than enough clubs who could be in this situation in the next few years. The relegation battle alone contains clubs like Wigan, Blackburn and Bolton who all are over 50 million in debt and QPR will be in a year or two.

I see also Portsmouth are likely to go into administration within the next few day.
Sorry times for the paying supporters.

Even if Celtic went into adminstration too and both were docked 10 points, they'd still finish as the top 2 teams. Such are the stagnant waters of Scottish football. You could say it's always been that way, but non-Old Firm have won the title down the years. Now, there's absolutely no way any other club could win the title. Little wonder that attendances in Scotland are so poor - fans of the other clubs know that they're also rans before the season even starts.

Like all clubs which dominate their leagues year-in, year-out, I wish nothing but misfortune on Rangers and Celtic.

I would like an Motherwell or a Hibs to break this dominance as it would make the SPL a lot more intresting, and crowds of those clubs would go up.

Same, with a bonus helping for tolerating the sectarian element of their fans.

Another nail in the coffin of a joke of a league. Scottish football needs change.

Rangers will still be one of the two biggest clubs, even if through some unliklihood they went bankrupt and had to re-form. The SPL would let them back in straight away, and nothing would have changed.

Scotland's football is on its last legs, as smaller clubs lose fans, TV and sponsorship money due to lack of success. They get less prize money for finishing in the lower positions, so are unable to strengthen. Its hard to see it picking up even if Celtic and Rangers left for England / Europe. It'll end up as the League of Wales, except with Cardiff and Swansea in it.

I know its the fault of the previous board who have drummed up all the debt, and it's never nice to see a club go into administration. Unfortunately, the two clubs which have both dropped in are both clubs I follow. I follow Portsmouth to keep up to tabs on the progress Appleton is making, and I generally follow Rangers due to my hatred towards Celtic. Won't explain any more in depth as it will no doubt break forum rules.

As you say, the Albion comes first and I'm glad we're not in the position of Portsmouth and Rangers
----------

It's official now. Rangers enter administration.

If Rangers really start falling by the wayside, could actually see this impacting negatively on Celtic as they lose any semblance of a rivalry and big games in domestic competition. Could make them even less attractive and possibly reduce interest/sponsors.

7 million garry. Despite dwindling profits they are still reducing their debt year on year.

Scottish football needs change so actually shaking it up with Rangers folding would at least force some change. They would struggle to put them right back in SPL although they would try, but they may have to start again at the bottom division, allowing a Motherwell, Hibs or Aberdeen to get the champions league money for a couple of years.

Would kill the SPL as a commercial entity though and it may force through the push for an Atlantic league.

Always had a soft spot for Rangers but they have no one to blame but themselves for running the club so poorly to get in this position in the first place.

I looked on the Celtic forum last night and a decent amount of them hoped that Rangers going into administration would pave a way for them to join the English league (now the Old Firm issues involving Rangers might be gone), though they were pretty realistic in that it probably wouldn't.

Sure it's only a forum, but I was surprised by the amount of fans who wish to join the English divisions, even if it meant starting at a lower tier.

Personally I wouldn't want them in the English league, not our fault their league is primarily madeup of only two teams and the rest to make the numbers up. If they want to go elsewhere then join the League of Ireland or one of the Scandinavian leagues.

Amazes me how Rangers or any club can get away with avoiding paying tax for so long, HMRC to busy chasing the easy targets by the looks of it.

The FA has a rule where football creditors get paid before anybody else. HMRC did not agree to this, and has finally had enough of playing along. I hope they hammer a few more clubs.

If they want to join the English league, make them start in the very lowest non-league - where AFC Wimbledon, Chester, and FC United had to start.

Totally agree. They didn't want to know the English until the Prem money came about. Let them stew in their own juice, it was all of their own making.
