This seems to be a week for leaks. I hear one club recently refunded two investors to the tune of £500k each. Don’t worry, it wasn’t Celtic, and I hear the club involved are one of the most financially secure in Britain. I also hear the national broadcaster rejected a former presenter’s request to return to the fold.
Still nothing from the SFA, who were responsible for issuing associate membership to Newco Rangers, on the leak from the club’s board meeting that the Association expressed alarm that earlier information had leaked from chairman, Malcolm Murray. Mr Murray recently instigated an investigation into the relationship between Craig Whyte and Charles Green, the nature of which could invalidate Newco’s associate membership.
Far from being alarmed at leaks, the SFA should be keen to see full disclosure. Reports suggesting otherwise are alarming. I am sure the SFA president has already demanded openness and clarity……. Relax, standards of corporate governance at the SFA are as high as ever.
I am also sure the leak from Newco was not a shot across the SFA’s bows, providing a glimpse into what looks like some murky conversations which people at the Association could have much to lose from being exposed.
