Rangers have told a man who was allegedly abused as a young boy inside Ibrox stadium that they are a different club.
According to Mark Daly on the BBC Rangers have told the man, who claims to have been abused by then head of youth development Gordon Neely in the 1980s, to pursue his complaint with the old club’s liquidators.
No apology was made to the 44-year-old , who was 11 when he came in to contact with the accused paedophile, by Rangers who instead claimed no liability as the company that employed Neely is in liquidation.
An email to the alleged victim from Rangers said: “You will understand that there have been many changes affecting Rangers over the last several years.
“The company which owned Rangers Football Club…. which you refer to as owing duties of care to your client will have been the company then called The Rangers Football Club PLC and now called RFC 2012 Limited.
“That company is currently in liquidation but we do have the liquidators’ contact details and can provide that information if it will assist.”
Gordon Neely died in 2014 before ever standing trial for a catalogue of abuse claims made against him from young players from his former clubs including Hibernian and Rangers.
Mark Daly has some amazing work tracking down and exposing child abuser who use a position of trust within our biggest football clubs to take advantage of young boys.
We previously covered how he tracked down former Celtic coach Jim Torbett to his hideaway in America.
