Yesterday the SFSA representing over 68,000 fans gave their support to the SPFL’s call for a ‘review of historical governance issues‘. Today Celtic FC have released a statement on their website calling for an independent review should be commissioned to consider the events that led to the liquidation of Rangers Oldco and the governance issues arising from those events.
As pointed out in Celtic FC’s statement
This is exactly the same position as adopted by the SPFL board on behalf of all Scotland’s 42 professional clubs.
On top of their statement Celtic FC have also published correspondence between themselves and the SFA. You can view the letters HERE.
We ask that you set aside some time to read the letters as they offer an insight into the shadow workings of the SFA board.
It is clear from reading the correspondence that the SFA are taking every opportunity not to address these governance issues by hiding behind ‘senior council’, that’s expensive and tame lawyers to you and I.
Yesterday the SFA probably thought (incorrectly we must add) that they could ignore the statement from the SFSA and pass it off as just a statement from a disgruntled fan group. Today they will be feeling shell shocked.
Scotland’s most powerful club have publicly fired the opening salvo in a war which they, the SFA have brought upon themselves by failing to properly administer the game.
Reading between the lines of the Celtic FC statement we believe that it’s clear they have the backing of SPFL and the majority of it’s member clubs. There is now nowhere for Mr Regan and the corrupt cabal he represents to hide.
We would ask as we did in a tweet earlier that supporters of ALL clubs do not allow the SMSM to turn this into a Celtic v Newco issue. This fight is about transparency and justice for all fans/clubs. If you see any ‘journos’ attempt this then challenge them.
