How is it unfair? Rangers are paying the price for their own mismanagement. Rangers' problems are not because of the league, it's because of their failure to adapt to their situation. Celtic have managed to break even after all. Celtic will win the league because they have budgeted better and been run better.

arsenal racked up 300 million which was owed to hmrc but they paid just 9m settlement or something along those lines, however they will be one of the clubs to face hmrc, wether their debt to hmrc has been paid in full remains to be seen.
That doesn't make any sense. HMRC can't retrospectively change the tax rules and go back to people and demand they more tax on former transactions to reflect new rules. Nor can Arsenal pay a settlement and then be dragged in to face HMRC because they have changed their minds. It sounds like Rangers continued to exploit loopholes that were closed.
I can't even find what case that is, only a couple of posts on Rangers forums.
