Nimmo Smith chairs Gers probe

The Scottish Football Association also appointed Lord Nimmo

Smith to chair their own inquiry into activities at Rangers earlier

this year.

An SPL statement read: “The Scottish Premier League today

announced that the independent commission to inquire into alleged

EBT payments and arrangements made by Rangers in relation to

players during the period from 2000 until 2011 will be chaired by

Lord Nimmo Smith.

“The other members of the independent commission are Mr Charles

Flint QC and Mr Nicholas Stewart QC.

“The commission will determine whether during that period in

relation to alleged EBT payments and arrangements for players,

Rangers was in breach of the relevant SPL rules.

“In the event that the independent commission decides that such

breach or breaches occurred the independent commission will have

powers to determine what sanctions, if any, are appropriate.”
