Campbell Ogilvie: His responsibilities in his own words

Following on from Campbell Ogilvie’s pre-emptive puff piece with Tom English in Scotland on Sunday, I thought that a few extracts from Rangers’ 2001 Annual Report might help jog his memory. For it seems that our Campbell cannot remember what the duties of a company director are.
Ogilvie either was complicit in directing a tax scam or failed to execute his duty to take reasonable steps for the prevention and detection of fraud and other irregularities. Tell us Mr. Ogilvie, what reasonable steps did you take? Did you consult an independent advisor? Did you raise any concerns with other directors? From today’s interview, it sounds like you did nothing.
In response to some poorly researched comments that claimed that Campbell Ogilvie was only Rangers’ company secretary and not a director, I attach data that should lay this issue to rest. While it is possible to be secretary and not a director, Ogilvie was both for several years. He was a director of Rangers FC when the EBT scheme started and did not stop being a Rangers director until 30 November 2005- 288b-Ogilvie-termination.
