Ex Rangers players who were paid through an offshore trust have been told they have ‘weeks’ to approach the taxman, it has been reported.

According to BBC Scotland, former players and staff face an even bigger bill if they don’t meet the deadline.

In 2017, the Supreme Court upheld a Court of Session ruling that £47 million paid to Rangers employees between 2001-2010 was liable for tax. Now those who received Employee Benefit Trusts, which many believed to be loans they would not have to repay, have been warned to seek advice.
