Again, never forget Keith Jackson lasagna face's disgusting role back in May. Despicable lady's front bottom.

Telling the guy never gets any footballing exclusives. Just the party line from SFA and SPFL party line.

The Daily Record article

Inverness Caley Thistle were at the centre of an SFA probe last night after bussing matchday stewards into the Highlands from coronavirus hotspot Glasgow.

Record Sport understands outgoing compliance officer Clare Whyte is investigating the claim which has been made by a whistle blowing fan of the Championship side who attended their 2-0 win over Raith Rovers on Saturday as part of a restricted crowd. It’s believed ICT have confirmed to the Hampden bosses that some stewards were drafted in on a minibus from the greater Glasgow area which has been placed in level four restrictions because of a surge in Covid-19 numbers across the central belt.

But Caley are adamant that no rules have been breached as the stewards adhered to strict social distancing as well as wearing face masks throughout the three-hour journey up the A9. The anonymous fan has written to complain to club bosses, claiming they risked the health of their own supporters and the local community by recruiting workers from a tier four area.

The outraged punter also claimed fans were ‘corralled like cattle’ as they waited to have their temperatures checked before being allowed inside the Tulloch Caledonian Stadium. Record Sport further understands the claims were discussed by football’s Joint Response Group last night.

One Hampden source said: “The compliance officer has been made aware and is looking into the matter to make sure there have been no breaches of protocol. “Obviously, it doesn’t look like a very clever idea to bring stewards into a level one area from Glasgow on a mini-bus but it does seem the club itself is very relaxed that none of the government’s rules have been broken.”

Surely people are allowed to travel for work purposes so it doesn’t matter what tier the stewards came from

Also given the shambles of Covid cases from Scotland’s U19’s and U21’s and the clear breach of protocols I think maybe fatty Clare should be told to STFU

Who is going to investigate the SFA ?

They had to abandon the U19 game when the test results returned a positive case for Billy Stark

You can tell the SFA and Keech are out to stir the shit for ICT after their stance re the corrupt SPL vote shambles

Jackson has form for being slovenly and lazy, not checking out stories, who’s surprised. Likes to publish pre written PR releases and unsubstantiated tittle tattle.

”wealth off the radar”

Does the record use local journalists or send folk from Glasgow to cover games?

Regardless, the covid rules specifically state that travelling for work is allowed. Non story.

Most clubs employ agencies/security companies who bring in stewards from all over the UK. I used to supervise stewards at Ibrox and some would have been brought from as far away as Yorkshire to work. I myself live in Ayrshire and even the diddy local club bring a company in to supply stewards. I've worked for companies based in Lanarkshire and West Lothian who get contracts for games at Shittodrie, Ross County and Inverness.

Wondered how long it would take for this to start once tiers were put in place. The stewards will be classed as key workers and are allowed to travel for work. I was working in a T2 area yesterday and live in a T4 area.
