...isn't our current owner a tax exile (who also had shares in Rangers)?
They have a few good young players coming through in the next few years if they continue to develop, I like Leon King and Kai Kennedy who haven't made many 1st team appearances yet and Nathan Patterson looks like he has potential at full back.
Joe Lewis emigrated from UK in the 1970's and has permanently lived abroad for decades - certainly might have had something to do with Dennis Healey's taxation system which at the highest tax take was 98% (ie tax payer kept 2%) which was ridiculously high that it meant people stopped working as it wasn't worthwhile - but not sure someone who emigrated 50 years ago can any longer be called a tax exile.
As a sidenote when Thatcher came to power in 1979, tax percentages went down - but total tax collected went up as more higher earners did more things.......reason why no left wing government throughout has tried to follow Healey''s tax take into the 90%'s !
ENIC held a stake in Rangers but sold it well before Rangers used schemes which was so blatantly to avoid paying tax I'm surprised anyone didn't understand it was likely to fail.
Back to football, under UEFA system Scottish trained footballers count as overseas trained (ie non HG) so best to sign them before aged 18 so they can become HG with 3 years at Spurs before aged 21.
Its always been amazing how Scotland (born and bred) used to produce a lot of top class footballers such as our own Alan Gilzean but almost stopped overnight maybe 20 years ago, but a few decent (not top class) footballers are starting to emerge again. Maybe time to take a punt on one or two under 18's
