Shafting Celtic…Scottish Footballs Answer To Cheating!By
What Happened To ‘Sporting Integrity’?
I must admit I thought the SFA/SPL/SFL would do the ‘right thing’ and send the Newco down to the Third Division purely for the sake of sporting integrity.
How wrong was I?
Stewart Regan, Neil Doncaster and David Longmuir couldn’t give a monkey ass about the well being of Scottish Football. All they want to do is blackmail smaller clubs with their ‘thirty pieces of silver’ to keep those over in Govan happy.
Forget the fact that the ‘club formerly known as Rangers’ have currently more investigations than Columbo. Or the fact that the LIQUIDATED club failed to pay their domestic taxes, something UEFA and FIFA are ‘supposed’ to frown upon. None of that matters.
Basically, their years of cheating will come at price, but not to them, to US!
The proposal of bribery, for that’s what it is, contains so many inacurracies Duff & Phelps could have written it.
Just where do they get the idea that £16m would be lost to the game if justice is seen to be done by sending the Newco to the bottom tier?
And where do they get the idea that the Scottish Government would pull the plug on it’s SFL Communities Strategy? Not according to Sports Minister Shona Robison who this morning said they will respect any decision taken.
Which makes you wonder what other lies are hidden in the document?
One thing is perfectly clear though, the whole proposal is all about saving face for the Establishment corpse, at the same time shafting Celtic and the support.
We are expected to pay for the bribes that would allow a Newco to attempt a return to the top flight in a season or so. Or else there will be ‘complete financial meltdown’ as the proposal put it.
Meltdown? You’ll soon see what financial meltdown when your ‘commercial partners’ have their subscriptions cancelled by the thousands for your actions.
Your secret meetings will comeback to haunt you.
Mssrs Doncaster, Regan and Longmuir just remember this, the fans will decide about financial meltdown, not the suits.
If you think rewarding a ‘club’ for non payment of taxes, business and football debts and the systematic cheating of league rules is the way forward for Scottish Football, you’re all very much mistaken.
Celtic hold the financial power in the game here, NOT a club without a league to play in. And now we’ll start to show WE won’t be pushed about.
Let battle commence….
