There is no outrage louder than moral outrage, so I ignored this week’s stupidity by Kilmarnock chairman Michael Johnston, adding volume seemed moot, but if you look below the bonnet of this decision you’re likely to find the real story. Kilmarnock FC is in a critical condition.
They need your money this week, probably even more than they need the goodwill of their own fans. Mr Johnston’s most damaging folly has not been to offer Celtic fans a better deal than his own club’s supporters, it has been the failure to address the club’s financial imperative over a long number of years. Like another club I can think of, getting cash in the door is the only game in town, as a failure to do so would bring enormous consequences.
It is the Killie fans who suffer as “Speaking as a solicitor” Johnston clings to what passes for power at a busted flush. Don’t apologise for this week’s self-harming insult, instead be contrite about the actions which brought about the problem.
