Police probe reportedly called for over Rangers FC tax case information

A POLICE probe is reportedly being called for into how financial details involving Rangers Football Club ended up in the public domain, including in an award-winning BBC Scotland investigation.

Says The Herald today, the call is being made by Rangers’ former owner, Sir David Murray, and follows a tribunal ruling earlier this week exonerating the club of alleged tax violations.

The BBC Scotland documentary, ‘Rangers – The Men who Sold the Jerseys’, was a winner last weekend at the Scottish BAFTAs, picking up the current affairs prize.

The Herald quotes a statement from Murray’s Murray International Holdings, as saying: “MIH’s underlying concern is that there may have been criminal offences committed in connection with the provision of..material to the BBC.”
