Rangers: New date awaited as EBT commission is delayed

Ibrox Stadium

No new date has been set for the start of the hearing into alleged undisclosed payments to Rangers players.

A Scottish Premier League-appointed independent commission was scheduled to start hearing evidence, but the process has been put back due to illness.

The SPL will make an announcement when the members of the commission have arranged a new date.

Its hearing will be chaired by Lord Nimmo Smith, who will be assisted by QCs Nicholas Stewart and Charles Flint.

Rangers chief executive Charles Green and former chairman Alastair Johnston have both questioned the independence of the commission team.

But Lord Nimmo Smith insists they will not be burdened by the SPL in their investigation.

It is alleged that the Ibrox club failed to disclose secondary EBT payments made to players during the years 2000-2011.
