  1. An excellent article, well written and balanced - sadly something professional hacks appear not to be able to emulate.
  2. Hibs, Kilmarnock, Aberdeen & Ross County have made it known that they do not back the SPFL's call for a further inquiry into the EBT years. I suspect many of the lower league clubs do not back the Celtic/SPFL stance either. On Wednesday 26th July, I sent the email below to every Scottish senior club indicating that their club logo was displayed on the website dedicated to stripthetitles. I used the email addresses listed on the SPFL website. Five addresses have probably been updated from this site as emails were bounced back from Motherwell, Forfar, Albion Rovers, Berwick Rangers
  3. I made a complaint after the "Hun" banner displayed at the cup semi-final last season. I am still in dialogue with Police Scotland about this but they have, so far, failed to respond in an adequate manner. I have been promised a response by traditional letter soon! I will share the contents of this response if/when it arrives.

I have been in contact (several times) with a senior member of Strathclyde's finest in relation to my complaint about the Banner displayed at the semi-final. I have submitted a series of questions that have been referred to their legal dept re use of the term 'Hun'. I wanted to know what progress had been made. He is awaiting a response to my questions. I spoke to this officer on the Monday after the final. He explained that he was very busy in relation to events connected to the final. Two days after the event, he offered the view that
  6. Rangers' Supporters Clubs will also be given an allocation.
  7. Response received from Police Scotland. Interesting that the use of the word Hun is not an offence! "I can confirm that there was a substantial policing and stewarding operation at the turnstiles, to prevent both sets of supporters getting access to the stadium with offensive banners and pyrotechnics. That said, it is simply not possible to search every single supporter and it was clear that both sets of supporters had pyrotechnics and banners which were offensive to some people. The banners you refer to are likely to have been wrapped round individuals, underneath their clo
  8. I have submitted a complaint to Police Scotland about this. Not expecting any action but if we don't express our displeasure there are few who will come to our assistance. https://www.scotland.police.uk/secureforms/hate-crime/
