Rangers will be back on the agenda at the upcoming Celtic AGM as the Sevcoists once again shoehorn that UEFA License award way back in 2010 into the annual meeting.
Celtic fans were left melting down at last season’s AGM when the club’s board kicked the motion into touch as conspiracy theories run rampant concerning Rangers’ financial issues around the same period.
Famously referred to as resolution 12 by the Parkhead club’s fans, it will be resolution 11 this time around as the Celtic board once again look to vote down the proposal.
The SFA infamously refused to take Rangers to the Court of Arbitration for Sport over the awarding of the license, for which the SFA had charged Rangers.
This is being called the “final vote” on the matter and the Celtic board are recommending shareholders vote against the motion.
Celtic chairman Ian Bankier has previously described pursuing the matter as not being in “the company’s best interests” [Scottish Sun].
Going on last year’s decision – and the continued criticism of the resolution by the Celtic board – you can safely expect shareholders to vote this down during the club’s virtual AGM.
Expect plenty of fall-out on the aftermath of that, with the vote set to take place on December 14th, but Rangers fans have been laughing out loud at the fact the resolution is back on the table in the first place.
Big news. Resolution 12 is now Resolution 11. They have been talking about this at their AGMs for 7 years now. 🤣 pic.twitter.com/5jQ5qKZGCX

4 years, 5 AGM votes, £25k+, 5 failed solicitor letters, 2 SFA enquiries, millions of mins on Social media, thousands of lies & hundreds of refusals to debate later:
On the 14th December, 97% Celtic plc shareholders will vote to kill Resolution 12
Could have saved so much time! https://t.co/UHPs0sYPbP

Celtic will be more than happy to have their AGM dominated by resolution 12 this year.

Here’s the Celtic resolution 11 in full, as quoted by the Daily Record:
“This AGM requests the board exercise the provision contained in the Procedural Rules Governing the UEFA Club Financial Control Body Article 10 with jurisdiction and investigation responsibilities identified in articles 3 & 11 (Note 1), by referring/bringing to the attention of the UEFA Club Financial Control Body (CFCB), the licensing administration practices of the Scottish Football Association (SFA), requesting the CFCB undertake a review and investigate the SFA’s implementation of UEFA & SFA license compliance requirements, with regard to qualification, administration and granting of licenses to compete in football competitions under both SFA and UEFA jurisdiction, since the implementation of the Club Licensing and Financial Fair Play Regulations of 2010.”
