The Scottish tabloid claims that a tribunal will set a fee for Everton to pay by way of compensation for signing Steven Naismith. It claims that Rangers newco owner Charles Green wants £1.5M.

The princely sum of £0 is awarded to Rangers Newco Football Club , minus the cost of staging the tribunal.
Of course if I were arranging a Scottish FA tribunal I would hold it at Edinburgh's finest hotel. I would also seriously consider a banquet of some sort, perhaps with Billy Connoly booked for postprandial entertainment. In addition I would feel obliged to sample a selection of the hotel's stock of famous vintage Whiskys( even though I can't stand the stuff ) and ensure that each panel member went home with a bottle or two.
Coming to a decision at a tribunal isn't easy; it simply can't be hurried, one must be both refreshed and relaxed and under no circumstances should these vital undertakings be carried out on an empty stomach.
Thank you very much Mr Green

They may have broke the rules in a number of ways, but I think they have suffered
enough without having to put up with Vic.....

1. Surely we owe nothing as Naismith's contract wasn't carried over to the newco.
2. He's just taking a chance hoping they can get something to help ease the financial problems against Rangers; Southampton signed Steve Davis then paid £800k later on to settle it.
3. Doesn't Charlie Green realise that they are now in a lot of 'Mark Bright' because the last few years they have done nothing but be greedy and only think about money! Lessons learned??? Obviously not, I'm afraid.
4. What goes around comes around, Charlie Boy! Rangers take every half-decent SPL player for a deep-fried Mars Bar & bottle of whisky, now Rangers are small pickings... the world owes Rangers a great deal!
I hate the fact clubs are allowed to spend reckless amounts of money and then, years down the line, dissapear or set up a 'newco' quite simply because it's the fans who ultimately suffer. Most Evertonians can testify we all want the best but not at the cost of our beloved club going under. Rangers are not the first club to be pissed on (Michael Ball payments involving Rangers were not paid in full, I believe) and won't be the last.
Just let it go, Charles, and start a new financially sound and successful GRFC.

Its just sour grapes. To be fair, if we ended up 3 divisions down and fully realised we'd bought into we might be kicking the cat too.

Seems like there is a bit true to the myth about scotsmen, but he is forgeting we have a scot at the helm here as well.

However with the Scottish FA backing Rangers then this will become a mess, they will demand a fee of around £2 million and Everton will refuse to pay that much.
The only thing that could be worse is if he is denied to play in the PL until we pay.

Green is doing what all people who have monumentally fecked up do, try any desperate ploy to get a little bit of moolah from anywhere.
