I refer to attached email, I have asked Stephen and Carol to get Ramsay's view on this.

We have had no press calls on this and again I have concerns that if the SFA issue this as a general
release it will raise the whole issue again and indeed add to speculation about a licence for next
season.

Please can I have your thoughts .

Regards

Andrew

Ali/Andrew

Further to my discussion yesterday with Andrew on the matter of Rangers FC's European licence I
would like to release the following statement. I believe this will be in the interest of both the club and
ourselves and I hope you agree. Please can you confirm that you are happy with the content. If so, I
would propose to issue this later today at an agreed time with yourselves.

Thanks
Stewart

In light of persistent speculation across all media, the Scottish FA would like to clarify the position in
regard to Rangers FC's licence to play in Europe as governed by Article 50 of the UEFA Regulations.

It is noted from the report submitted to the Licensing Committee by Rangers FC's advisors Grant
Thornton UK LLP, dated 30th March 2011,
that: "All the recorded payroll taxes at 31 December 2010 have, according to the accounting records
of the Club since that date been paid in full by 31 March 2011, with the exception of the continuing
discussion between the Club and HM Revenue and Customs in relation to a potential liability of 2.8m
associated with contributions between 1999 and 2003 into a discounted option scheme. These
amounts have been provided for in full within the interim financial statements."

Since the potential liability was under discussion by Rangers FC and HM Revenue & Customs as at
31st March 2011, it could not be considered an overdue payable as defined by Article 50.

We are satisfied that the evidence from all parties complied with Article 50 and, on that basis, a
licence was awarded for season 2011-12.

Add editor's notes. (Include Article 50 here from UEFA Regulations)

It would be crazy for them to put this out. Ali, please call me on this.

All

We should put some pressure on the SFA from a high level, from Ali or Andrew to say we do not
believe this is a good idea the SFA putting out such as statement. It stirs up the issue again. What
they should do is if they get a legitimate media inquiry respond to it by saying there is no issue
whatsoever with Rangers licensing arrangement with the SFA.

If they persist they will only cause issues for themselves as much as Rangers.

Stewart,

Tried to phone you. Would prefer no comment or the following

We have looked at this matter and there is no issue with the licence granted to Rangers from the
SFA.

I look forward to speaking to you later,


Ali

All sorted - Held until further notice and I have agreed we will meet Stewart and Campbell for dinner in
the next couple of weeks to discuss bigger issues. I also made it clear we were very unhappy with the
approach the SFA took last week! Hopefully we can move forward now.


Kind Regards,


Ali
