I know lockdown is causing much anxiety, but can you imagine being in Newco chief exec Stewart Robertson’s shoes these days? He must have known the gig was up when he decided not to release his ‘evidence’ before clubs were able to send proxy vote to block his EGM resolution.
I’m sure he hoped the SPFL would announce they have enough votes in the bag, allowing him to flounce off, instead of substantiating his claim, but those he wanted sacked at the League will want to see this play out as much as the rest of us.
He even has Graeme Spiers calling him out as the weakest man he’s met in football. For a man in his position, “weak” is the most damning word, it will resonate with those whose support he relies on. And let’s not forget, he has tens of millions to find to continue trading though next season, by comparison, this SPFL mess is like a July Walk on the Queen’s highway.
From what I hear, Stewart is a decent bloke, one made for less complex times. His strings are almost certainly being pulled by some sinister Geppetto character. If he fails to produce his ‘evidence’, this afternoon’s Premiership club meeting will be an excruciating, if not humiliating, affair. It will all be over soon, Stewart; you hang in there.
I’m sure we would all like to congratulate PSG on winning the ninth title in their history and seventh in eight years yesterday, apart from that Neymar character, of course. The story for Scottish football in how the French league finished is the third place finish of Rennes – who could only manage a fourth place finish in the Europa League group Celtic topped.
While we are not in PSG’s class, we more than held our own against a French and Italian sides in the Europa League this season. Like Celtic, Rennes will enter the Champions League qualification round next season.
