In a bid to remain successful and competitive at the top level in the late s, Rangers began to exploit a legal loophole called Employee Benefit Trusts EBTs as a way of paying players, and avoiding tax.
Although the EBTs were legal at the time, the way that Rangers used them was not, enabling them to acquire players — and win trophies — that they otherwise could not afford.
When EBTs were subsequently outlawed, the club was faced with an enormous tax bill that it simply could not meet. In the end, the holding company that owned Rangers were forced into liquidation in A new company bought them, and the club was forced to reconstitute itself and reapply to the league, joining at the lowest tier of Scottish professional football in League Two.
It took them four years to climb back to the Premiership, and, apart from the occasional cup game, there were no derbies in that period.
