Ness Gets To Play
Updated Friday, 20th July 2012
The registration of players who have moved from Rangers has moved on with FIFA allowing them to play
A number of players, following advice from PFA Scotland, rejected the chance to transfer their contracts from Rangers to Charles Green's Sevco consortium. Green rejects the claim that the players are free agents and sent letters to clubs across the UK warning them that the players who objected to the switch to Sevco were in breach of contract.
However, midfielder Ness joined Stoke, Naismith moved to Everton and Whittaker signed for Norwich. Northern Irish duo Davis and Lafferty are at Southampton and Swiss side Sion respectively. The association to which the players are affiliated can request temporary registration from FIFA to allow the player to play during the period of arbitration.
PFA Scotland solicitor, Margaret Gribbon, of Bridge Litigation, said: "I can confirm that Jamie Ness has been granted provisional clearance from FIFA. I am delighted about that and expect all other applications pending before FIFA to take the same course."
