SFA appoints Lord Nimmo Smith to Rangers inquiry panel

Tue 21st Feb 2012 | Money & Finance

The Scottish Football Association has appointed Lord William Nimmo Smith as chair of their independent inquiry into Rangers' recent business dealings.

Stewart Regan, SFA chief executive, met Lord Nimmo Smith on Tuesday to define the parameters of the investigation.

The panel also includes Professor Niall Lothian, a past president of the Institute of Chartered Accountants.

Also joining Regan on the panel is Bob Downes, deputy chairman of the Scottish Environmental Protection Agency.

“I am certain the experience contained within the panel will enable us to achieve more clarity on the situation regarding Rangers FC”

The independent inquiry will be afforded the same powers as the SFA to investigate the potential breach of a number of its Articles of Association and will present its findings to the board within two weeks.

"I am delighted Lord Nimmo Smith has agreed to chair the Independent Inquiry," said Regan.

"I am certain the experience contained within the panel will enable us to achieve more clarity on the situation regarding Rangers FC.

"There will be no further comment on the investigation until it is complete and its findings presented to the board."

Lord Nimmo Smith is a former Senator of the College of Justice and has served as an insolvency judge.

In 2002, he was one of five judges who heard the appeal of Abdelbaset al-Megrahi, the man convicted of the 1988 Lockerbie bombing, at the Scottish Court in the Netherlands.

Rangers entered administration last Tuesday and the club was docked 10 points by the Scottish Premier League, effectively ending its title challenge.
