%^*& waiting on one of them proposing it, get the statement out ourselves. Tell them we want the leagues annulled and due to the perilous situation of Scotland’s teams face, particularly small teams, we believe the prize money should be split evenly. And then turn the screw, tell them it should be paid immediately before clubs go under make them make a decision now, font let Celtic %^*& about behind the scenes exerting pressure.I’ve been critical of the board for not having enough influence off field but they’ve obviously been in contact with Hearts and Thistle, both highlight the need for greater conversation about the way forward.
It’s a promising statement but reading between the lines it’s obvious they’d happily go with reconstruction if offered. It proves that everyone is driven by self-motivation. We can argue the merits of who’s in the right and who’s in the wrong but it’ll come down to self-interest. Plain and simple, Rangers should get Hearts or better still Aberdeen (if they are warming to our viewpoint) to propose N&V and an equal split so the money can be released to those who need it.
this approach would have the support of hibs, hearts, Aberdeen and Killie because they will be placed higher than they currently are and killie have a euro spot. You would also get Hamilton, st Mirren, St Johnstone voting for it because an equal share of the prize money is better than the usual 6th,-11th placed prize money.
Against it would be Celtic, Motherwell and Dundee United who don’t get a vote so %^*& them.
I’d go one further and propose a 13th place share to be split into the lower leagues, let’s get them onside as well.
Let’s get on the front foot and appear as the good guys for once.
