Players’ union seek talks on Rangers’ plans for future
Fraser Wishart to ensure players’ rights are protected
PFA SCOTLAND chief executive Fraser Wishart today challenged Charles Green to engage in serious consultation over his plans for a new Rangers.
Green has claimed players would be in “breach of contract” if they did not transfer over to his planned newco.
But Wishart has stated his union’s legal opinion is that his members are under no obligation to stay at Ibrox under the Transfer of Undertakings (Protection of Employment) (TUPE) regulations.
Green must continue to employ all staff who wish to keep their jobs under the same terms.
Green is poised to push ahead with a £5.5 million deal to buy the club’s assets and form a new club, which would need to apply for membership of the Scottish Premier League and would be excluded from Europe for three years.
Wishart said: “It may well be the case that all of the players wish to transfer across to the newco. If that is the case then PFA Scotland will ensure their rights are protected.”
