‘Finally’ beginning to realize how poorly the SPFL is run- David Edgar reacts

David Edgar claims that after Stenhousemuir’s chairman criticized the league for their “embarrassing” Rangers climbdown, other clubs are “finally” beginning to realize how poorly the SPFL is run.

After the Scottish League Two team released a statement on February 9th, supporting the Light Blues and five other

Premiership clubs, citing “serious concerns” about the league executive and their handling of the Independent

Governance Report [Chris Jack, 8 February], the man behind Four Lads Had A Dream responded on Twitter.

The letter of concern was sent by Rangers, Motherwell, Livingston, Aberdeen, St Johnstone, and St Mirren. It

focused attention on CEO Neil Doncaster and chairman Murdoch MacLennan. Edgar responded after

Stenhousemuir added their own voice.

“After being assured for almost two years that the SPFL were in the right to continue this dispute with Rangers, we were surprised to receive, without warning, a copy of a news release that seemed to be an embarrassing climbdown,” the club said in reference to a statement made by chairman Iain McMenemy on their official Twitter account.

“The SPFL was forced to acknowledge their error, compensate Rangers, and pay legal fees.”

“Other teams finally finding out just how poorly the SPFL is run,” Four Lads wrote in response.

Motherwell and Aberdeen were among the teams that joined Rangers in their criticism.

Disputations with the authorities give the impression that the Light Blues are on the outside looking in, and at times

they seem to be shunned by the rest of the Scottish football hierarchy.

However, it appears that things are beginning to turn around if a sizable number of clubs continue to participate; as

a result, MacLennan and Doncaster will undoubtedly face pressure.

It is impossible to view the boldly stated assertion regarding the Cinch sponsorship fiasco as anything other than an

embarrassment and a defeat after being shown to be incorrect and forced to retract it.

It is understandable that other clubs might have lost faith in the executive as a result, and it is a poor impression on

the league office if their purported investigation of that failure is also causing members to become dissatisfied.

On the SPFL, the temperature is rising.

Furthermore, the current state of affairs might serve as further proof that the Rangers were right to stand their ground and prevail following that descent.

Furthermore, the SPFL seems to have really blown this opportunity to come across this badly, considering the club hasn’t exactly been flawless in recent years when it comes to legal battles over ostensibly pointless matters.
