Scottish football is a tough enough gig at the best of times for provincial clubs, but to learn that a behemoth like The Rangers still required to cheat to ensure their dominance continued, thus denying other teams those faint hopes and dreams (Leicster have since shown that hopes and dreams can come true) is wholly criminal.
At the very base level you hope that it's eleven against eleven and your team overcome the gulf in class that the skewed finances of our set-up permitted to just once in a while achieve a win to upset the odds. This was denied us and every other club in Scotland. David Murray stated on oath the, now shown to be wrongful, use of EBT's allowed them to attract players to the club that they otherwise would not be able to afford. To do so they broke SFA rules by issuing side letters to falsify the financial arrangements that they were operating under.
The goals scored, the saves made, the manager's decisions which affected the results of each and every one of the matches in which the EBT recipients participated in erodes the principles of sport.
Why should we just suck this up? Why should we be concerned about the embarrassment? Why should the SFA or SPFL Blazers not endure the flak?
We've had matches overturned because an administrative error has found one player was ineligible - Rangers had a (insert f word here) whole team of them. It's a disgrace. Much as we laugh at our County Cousins, they were embarrassed in that final - gubbed, Kanchelskis standing on the ball taking the pee - imagine that was us. How crap would we feel?
Strip them of every Title, Cup, point, goal - I still wouldn't accept that that was enough because they still swagger around without an ounce of remorse. (Insert c word here)!!!
