‘Finally’ – David Edgar reacts as club chief slams ‘Embarrassing’ SPFL over Rangers Ibrox News

Other clubs are “finally” starting to realise how badly the SPFL is run after Stenhousemuir’s chairman hit out at the league of their “embarrassing” Rangers climbdown, according to David Edgar.
The man behind Four Lads Had A Dream reacted on Twitter on 9 February after
the Scottish League Two club issued a statement in support of the Light Blues and five other Premiership clubs who cited
“serious concerns” about the league executive and their handling of the Independent Governance Report [Chris Jack, 8 February].
Rangers, Motherwell, Livingston, Aberdeen, St Johnstone,
and St Mirren had issued a letter of concern,
focusing attention on CEO Neil Doncaster and chairman Murdoch MacLennan,
with Edgar responding after Stenhousemuir joined their voice.
The club quoted chairman Iain McMenemy’s statement on their official Twitter account:
“After being assured for nearly two years that the SPFL were correct in continuing this dispute with Rangers,
we were surprised to receive, without warning,
a copy of a news release that appeared to be an embarrassing climbdown.
“The SPFL had to apologise to Rangers, pay compensation and legal costs,
and admit that they got this wrong.”
In reaction, Four Lads commented, “Other teams are finally realizing how poorly the SPFL is run.
“Rangers, along with Aberdeen and Motherwell, have been criticized.
At times, the Light Blues appear to be isolated from the rest of the Scottish football pyramid,
and disagreements with the authorities give the impression of being on the outside looking in.
However, it appears that the situation is reversing as a considerable number of clubs have already joined in,
putting MacLennan and Doncaster under increased pressure.

Claiming one thing about the cinch sponsorship debacle only to be found wrong and forced to give an apology can only be viewed as an embarrassment and loss.It’s not surprising that other teams have lost faith in the executive as a result,

and if their apparent attempt to investigate the failure is also leaving members dissatisfied,
it’s a bad look for the league office overall.
And the current circumstance may serve as more vindication for Rangers after their climbdown,
since they stood firm and emerged victorious.

And, given that the club hasn’t been immune to court battles over seemingly insignificant problems in recent years

, the SPFL appears to have made a severe mistake in this case.
