Rangers are set to be liquidated...Looks like Edu will be sold.
Green intends to buy all the players contracts for the new company and keep them in the SPL if they can stay there, or the 3rd division if they are forced to start again.
You can't buy player contracts in Europe. Every player had to sign a new contract, if they start again.
I apologise, I had poorly worded it, he intends on honouring the contracts they were on and thus will offer the players the same terms to renew with the new company, which of course they have the right to reject.
If they have to restart in the 3rd division... All 3 of the lads will be gone I suspect. A bit of a shame for Boca. I would have been fine with him staying there. At 33, I dont like the idea of him adjusting to a new european club
If they are offering the same terms under a new contract, how can Boca not stay? Is he gonna be able to get same the terms from any other club @ 33?
I said if they have to start in a lower division... If they play in the SPL, I absolutely want him to stay & he probably will, but no way he stays if they have to restart in the lowest division.. He has to be playing at a reasonable level going into 2014 & he knows it
If you think the bolded is all he thinks about with this, you are mistaken. He can't be throwing away money at this point in his career.
We will have to agree to disagree on this.
Sorry but u wont walk away from that kind of statement that easily. First off, they are in financially horrible times. Granted a totally new regime will come in & they could have good money, but who's to say they would even offer him as much. Also, he is 33, has had a great career & has made plenty of money. He is the captain of our national team & he knows how important it is to play at a decent level if he wants to be involved in 2014. He may aswell retire from the nats if he decides to stay with Gers at a lower level. He can find near that money in a league like the SPL or better, im sure...
You want him going to the Scottish 3rd division? I mean, that's the dregs of world football. That's full of clubs nobody's heard of (Annan Athletic and such) in rickety stadiums in front of hundreds of fans. No chance of that happening. Zero. Nada.
There will be a demand for Carlos. He'll be leaving if they're forced to go down. (which I personally don't think will happen.) At the very least, there'd be considerable interest from MLS.
I'm not quite understanding the status of Rangers. Do they have to forfeit their CL qualifying spot for next season because they went into administration? Is the 3rd division restart a potential punishment?
Rangers didn't qualify for the CL this season and with the new company will not be eligible for the CL until 2015/16.
The other 11 SPL clubs will now vote on whether Rangers 2.0 starts in the SPL or is expelled down to the third division.
Common sense suggests Rangers will be expelled, but there are already rumours of Rangers offering 'generous' cuts of ticket revenue to other SPL clubs to attain the 6 votes they need.
He's played in Europe for 8 seasons at smallish teams, I doubt he's made so much money that it's not a big factor in any decision he makes.
Well, it would be in terms of choosing MLS over division 3 in Scotland...
MLS teams would pay DP money for him, so its really a non-issue. Hell, as a Rev fans I'd trade Shalrie Joseph for Boca in a minute, even with the salary increase.
Chances are, Boca can find a decent Belgian/Danish team or a mid table Dutch team to latch on to. 33 isn't really THAT old for a CB, especially a player that's been relatively injury free and isn't showing signs of mobility problems.
Clear it up! SFA ask FIFA to help rid confusion from Ibrox player contracts issue
They'll find a way to keep Rangers in the SPL.
You think the SPL is irrelevant now? Take Rangers out of it.
According to the Scots player's union, UK labor law and a couple of analysts I've seen, even tho Green is claiming that the players contracts will still be binding at a "newco" the popular legal opinion is it will be the player's choice. The stories I've read suggest the club will have to honor the old contracts if the player wishes to continue with the club, but if the player want to move on to greener pastures they will have that option and there is nothing the NewGers can do about it.
Green, as I said, disputes this, but if I was a betting man, I would bet he is incorrect and the union is right. Fifa has not commented one way or other last I looked, but the theory is the players will be out of contract, so they can transfer where they want.
(just saw JG quoted the shorthand of what most articles I've seen have suggested.)
The didn't qualify due to being in administration at the deadline.
There is a lot of pressure from fans on their clubs to force Gers to start in DIII. If so they are out of Europe for at least 3 seasons, plus they lose a ton of gate. I can't imagine this happening, but then again, there's a lot of what has already happened I couldn't imagine.
Common sense would suggest they not be expelled - if that common sense means what is best for the majority in Scots football. But if Gers do offer "generous" cuts (and will their admin lawyers allow them to) how long can they stay competitive (read dominant w./ Celtic.)
If Rangers have to start again in the third division, what is to stop them from entering the English system? That is what I would threaten the the other clubs if I was in their position. At that point, in for a penny in for a pound. Wonder where they would enter? Rangers leaving for England would be disastrous for Scottish football and Celtic.
The issues stopping Rangers joining the English league are that 1. There is no place for them except down in the regional leagues, and 2. Even if a place were found, the other clubs would have to accept their entry. Which they wouldnt.
There was talk of Rangers taking Pompey's place should Pompey fold this summer, but there is no way the other L1 sides would allow them in.
As for their current situation in SPL, Sky today confirmed that they will happily honour their current contract with the league should Rangers be expelled and a date of July 4th has been set for the vote to decide where Rangers will play next season. Early rumours today have 6 clubs set to vote against Rangers and thus expel them to Div 3, although there is still time for some 'persuasion' to be undertaken.
SPL exec announced Rangers will start in Division 3 td. Vital times for Boca & Edu regarding the USNT
