Uefa compliance officer set for SFA next week


A Uefa compliance officer will visit the Scottish FA early next week after European football’s governing body were asked to look into what was happening inside Scottish football by people within the German game.  Scottish football has been rocked by allegations of improper registration of players for over a month now.  The SFA recently concluded an inquiry into Rangers without reference to the allegations while the Scottish Premier League have announced an inquiry, but indicate it will not report anytime soon.

Although the allegations have consequences beyond the SPL, including international and European football, the SFA have failed to actively address concerns which could see 12 years of football results rewritten, prompting interest from Uefa.

  1. Glendalystonsils likes a mr whippy with his lime green jelly on

    The EUFA compliance officer obviously moves in a higher gear than the SFAcompliance officer who is seemingly still writing up his report on the sectarian singing at the huns v Killie game. Maybe his crayons keep breaking.

  2. Since 1997 the following clubs have exited Europe at rangers expence






























    Dinamo Moscow
























    Fc copenhagen




    Red star








    Sporting lisbon



    Just imagine if there is a ‘problem’ on the administrative side in Scottish football …


    That could possibly be a massive can of worms!


    I wonder if they are watching.

  4. 2-0 to Sporting…a Celtic-esque goal! Ball drilled in from the right across goal and tapped in by striker on the left hand post. Excellent.



    Hail Hail

    If the sfa are found wanting by uefa..could that make them legally liable for compensation claims by other eufa clubs who have suffered loss due to improper player registration by ragers with the sfa complicit ?




    Think I have just answered my own question there…or heaven forbid eufa uncover such a can of worms that they try and put a lid on it also ?



    Away for a wee lie doon now !!!

    Can’t wait to see our young hoops having a go at Europe next season.



    Making the champions league group stages would be outstanding, and great experience for our players.



    I know playing in the Europa league is ok, but the champions league nights are the best nights in football. It’s been too long, bring them back!

    Any half reasonably impartial inquiry into the SFL, the SPL, (since 1998) and the SFA since Fergus McCann returned to Scotland from Canada would leave Scotland without access to European football at both club and national level. The performance by both the SPL and the SFA in the ten months since Craig Whyte picked up the poisoned chalice has been lamentable whilst the Scottish media, which had plumbed the depths of sycophancy throughout Murray’s ownership at Ibrox, sunk even further while leading the cheers for Rangers new owners. Can it only be a few months since they were ecstatic about a £26 million warchest? And yet now Sandy Jardine (a bone fide footballer) is getting carried away collecting £20 notes from pensioners in Northern Ireland! UEFA at least deserves some credit for trying to get involved, in Switzerland and elsewhere, but as we all know it will have its’ work cut out in Scotland. I wish them well.

  13. Maybe the UEFA Compliance Officer could assist the SFA / SPL in the investigation into the sectarian songs at Ibrox during game against Kilmarnock, as 3 weeks after the game nothing has been heard.



    Now if this was Celtic being investigated ………….

  14. This is now becoming truely bizarre.



    First Phil was talking of claims from Portugal. Now German names?



    I always thought Scotland was regarded as a football backwater as far as the heid yins @ UEFA were concerned. A good place to have posh meetings (Gleneagles etc) or the occassional Euro Final but otherwise not a place of any real consequence.



    What could have brought this about? Obviouisly worries about rule flaunting!



    Doubt the Portuguese or Germans are avid followers of Scotland Today or Reporting Scotland.


    Even when they became aware of RFCIA is it reasonable that they would drill down to find minutiae specifically in respect of their own clubs?


    What could be the cause of member Associations referring concerns to UEFA?


    Have the SFA reported themselves? (Joke!)



    Or have some of you cheeky Cyber Tims out there been working overtime above & beyond the call of duty???!!!???



    More power to your internet connections I say

  15. Smashy…..I can see Paul67 banning you for calling him a trumpet…..what has he done to you to deserve this?

  16. SmashingMilkBottles on

    Moving off topic just now….



    What does the blog think of Fraser Forster not signing up yet?

  17. The best bit is all these guys- and we all know some- who say “Scottish football is f***** s*****, thats why I go down/come across to watch Man City/United, Liverpool instead”.



    Hope all you bozos at Eastlands (and at Old Trafford last week) enjoyed the hammering!

  18. It must be the representative from……….

  19. I wouldn’t diminish UEFA’s involvement. It puts ‘the scandal’ firmly on the map. No hiding place,now. No smothering with Orange Ordure. No ‘bidness as usual’. This is now formally,international. And it is only the first salvo.


    Ra gers are as dead as the proverbial dead parrot.
