The Daily Record has ventured into murky waters by picking up the baton as Sevco attempt oust SPFL chairman Murdoch MacLennan.

Despite two statements attempting to undermine the former Record director the SPFL has refused to entertain calls for MacLennan to stand down.

The latest Ibrox statement mentioned two Celtic shareholders who don’t take kindly to innuendo with the Record heading down that line with an opinion piece today.

The Record reports:

Gers see it as a direct conflict of interests.

They back it up by referencing an assassination job in Private Eye magazine from last year where it was claimed when he worked at the Daily Record 30 years ago he often said he “cannae stand those b******s” when it came to Rangers.

It’s hard to believe anyone using such fruity language in here but who knows? Times were different back then!

Rangers fans have latched on to the Private Eye savaging but MacLennan has never addressed it. Or addressed anything.

Jokingly kicking off the article with reference to the 12 young Thai footballers rescued from a cave the author then goes on to highlight the low media profile of the SPFL chairman.

The Celtic shareholders are then brought into the article followed by reference to Private Eye allegations about MacLennan’s comments in the Daily Record office 30 years ago.

The Record’s interest in the SPFL chairman is in contrast to the disappearance of Paul Murray from Ibrox.

In March 2015 the borders businessman praised the courageous journalism of the Glasgow based publisher but after resigning from the Ibrox board two months ago appears to have taken a vow of silence.
