Davis Refused Clearance

Davis Refused Clearance

Steven Davis, and his fellow ex Rangers colleagues, have been refused international clearance by the Scottish FA with newco Rangers demanding compensation for players whose contracts were terminated and who then refused to transfer those contracts to the new Rangers company.

Anybody know a decent lawyer?

Steven Davis, Steven Naismith, Steven Whittacker, Kyle Laffety and Jamie Ness have all been refused international clearance by the Scottish FA following their moves to new clubs after the implosion of Rangers.

It's expected that FIFA will grant temporary registrations while they rule on the matter of whether newco Rangers have any claim whatsoever to the players and indeed, whether they are entitled to compensation.

Quite what this has to do with the Scottish FA, who last time I checked, have still not worked out where to put Rangers in the Scottish leagues after Premiership clubs refused to allow them back in, is beyond me. The players are free agents, they have had their contracts terminated by Glasgow Rangers so the Scottish FA simply should've approved the transfers and treated them as unattached players, which is the standpoint of the Scottish PFA, with chairman Tony Higgins saying last week.

'I haven't spoken to a single employment or sports solicitor who agrees with Mr Green's (newco Rangers owner) interpretation of the law.'

Mr Green has apparently contacted all English clubs to warn them that the leaving players are in breach of contract.
