What you and I have known for months was established as true by the BBC last night, Rangers improperly registered players for over a decade. Following the programme there was some bluster by a firm of accountants who clearly have a lot to worry about, but nothing has been said to dispute the dual contract claim.
The SLP have not added to their 65 word statement released ahead of the broadcast. SFA chief executive Stewart Regan has told the BBC the association will not act, unless called to do so as an appeal body, and SFA President What-school-did-you-go-to has not uttered a word.
Campbell Ogilvie was an executive director of Rangers when it carried out a dual contract system in contravention of the rules of the SFA. This is an established fact which is likely to have severe repercussion for the Scottish game and the club. It is inconceivable that he continues to act as president of the SFA, especially when it has taken the decision not to become involved, despite being the only body competent to investigate breaches across all domestic competitions.
He must resign immediately or be fired. If Mr Regan does not understand this he should be fired too. He is there to take the hard decisions, not to make friends. He has abandoned fans at the time they most need clear leadership.
Anyone on the board in any doubt about this matter must follow them out the door. The SFA is professional body with budget of millions of pounds, not an old boys club, and should act accordingly.
