Given she is such a big fan of the current board and given the RFB's position that they are against the use of Ibrox of security, surely she should resign if she had any principles, which would prove that she's not just in it to increase her public profile?

And how do know she's a 'big fan' of the current board?

Her twitter feed shows she is a fan of our CEO under whose watch Ibrox is being put up for security and she certainly didn't correct her friend when he said that the current board will get us back on track.

The comments that all this fuss is about predate the news of Ashley wanting Ibrox as security, and it's about one board member anyway so you don't actually know how she feels about the regime overall do you? There's no reason to believe the fans board aren't unanimous on the Ibrox security issue.

 

Wider point is that I don't see how being on the RFB bars someone from having personal views and expressing them on their own personal social media pages. We're talking about an unpaid voluntary position here after all, it's not a PLC board.

She's there to represent ALL fans. If she goes about publicly slagging off the visible faces of the views of a large section of the support then I don't see how she can do her job dispassionately.

 

She volunteered for the position. There were plenty of others willing to take it on. As such she should be aware that she is holds a privileged and high profile position and should learn to be discreet, It's not as of she doing it relatively anonymously on a forum. She's putting her name to it.

 

How can you be a fans' rep when you go about slagging off fans?

Life isn't that simple, plenty of Labour MPs will have slagged off Scottish

Nationalists during the referendum campaign that were more than likely constituents of theirs. The fans board are there to listen to concerns of fans and read correspondence from them, then bring issues raised to the club. Having a personal view of high profile individuals doesn't prevent her or anyone else carrying out that role, and let's be honest here Craig Houston has chosen to put himself in the public spotlight where people will form opinions of him, he's a fan but he's not just any fan these days.

 

We're not talking about horrible personal abuse or threats here and no-one sent Houston a direct message, he or someone close to him obviously came across the comments decided they were worth reporting.

 

I just don't think people should be so quick to judge someone they don't know or declare them unfit without knowing what work they do in their role.
