Duff & Phelps administrators warn manager Ally McCoist that player cuts or wage reduction is needed to ensure club's future
DUFF & PHELPS administrators could cut 11 players at Scottish football club Rangers.
Paul Clark and David Whitehouse, both partners at Duff & Phelps, were appointed to the club on 14 February.
However, the report claims that Clark and Whitehouse have offered two alternative options including; eight players taking redundancy and other players take a 50% wages cut; or all staff taking a 75% cut to their wages.
It is reported that the club needs about £10m to continue operating until the end of the season.
The administration follows a petition for the club’s winding up from HM Revenue & Customs following non-payment of about £9m in PAYE and VAT after its takeover in May 2011 by Craig Whyte.
HMRC are also involved in a long running tax tribunal with the club over how players were paid.
Rangers FC and the taxman are battling out a compensation case over the club’s use of Employee Benefit Trusts (EBTs).
HMRC claims it is owed £24m in unpaid PAYE due to the club using EBTs, which provide employees with non-repayable interest free loans.
