HMRC are rumoured to have frozen Rangers FC Bank Accounts


According to rumours spreading like wildfire, HMRC have allegedly frozen the bank accounts of Rangers Football Club over the outstanding £2.8 million debt to the Government body and the disputed £1.4 million penalty imposed on top of it.

At this moment in time there has been no official confirmation, however the Rangers Supporters Trust are using their official social network sites to publish said report.

When contacted HMRC’s Press Officer in Scotland said: “We can’t comment due to confidentiality rules”.

This report comes just over three weeks since Sheriff Officers from Walker Love attended Ibrox to serve papers to Rangers.

If these reports are true then the staff and footballers of Rangers Football Club will not be be paid until the freeze on the accounts have been lifted.

Rangers FC have been unavailable for comment.


According to Sky Sports Reporter Charles Paterson via his twitter page: “Rangers served with further paperwork by HMRC – tax dispute between parties escalating. But club assets have NOT been frozen.”

HMRC have outlined next steps that can be taken, these include freezing assets followed by a winding up order.

RFC feel HMRC are “being unduly aggressive in their negotiations”. Club also angry info is being leaked once again.
