The SFA Judicial Panel which disciplined Rangers two weeks ago was independent of the SFA. Tonight’s appellate panel was also independent but as I was reminded tonight, there’s independent and there’s ‘independent’.
Celtic Quick News has cast its share of aspersions in the direction of the SFA in recent years but even President What-school-did-you-go-to? could not spike what appears to be well established processes.
The consequences from tonight’s decision by the SFA appellant panel will run deep for Stewart Regan, and I suspect life would be easier for him if a more accommodating verdict was returned, but the structure he created delivered what he promised. Justice, without fear or favour. Credit where due.
You and I have a responsibility to start rebuilding trust, and Scottish football, from here. Don’t wallow in past times, or a in an old victim mentality. Tomorrow belongs to you and your neighbours who support Aberdeen, Dundee United, Hibs, St Mirren, Motherwell and many others. Make sure you enjoy that future and are not consumed by past torments.
Rangers is a former football club. They played their last game on Sunday 13 May 2012 at Perth.
We’ve been predicting this for months, and if you think the revelations and shocks are over, think again. Empires will crumble, oceans will dry and galaxies will collide next week. The surface has only been scratched.
