Stewart Milne wants to call a summit of Scottish football clubs to bring transparency to the game.

In September 2017 Celtic called for a complete review of governance since 2011 but the Aberdeen chief was first to jump on board the ‘time to move on’ movement.

Soon afterwards Pittodrie was chosen to host Scotland’s friendly match against Holland.

Despite the liquidation of Rangers in 2012 and administration at Hearts a year later there is still no Financial Fair Play in the Scottish game with the SFA extremely lapse at applying UEFA licensing rules.

Aberdeen have attracted investors to clear the debt issue that dogged them for a decade with Milne repeating his call for a summit into governance of the Scottish game.

“I think it’s very important that the summit looks at the whole thing a lot more holistically,” the Daily Record reports.

“It’s important everyone goes into the session with an open mind, acknowledges that we have some serious issues we need to address.

“We need to come up with a comprehensive plan that we have a much more robust system and a much more transparent system.”

Aberdeen have been on the wrong end of some baffling refereeing decisions this season with refereeing issues mired in secrecy.

Willie Collum, Bobby Madden, Kevin Clancy and Andrew Dallas have all been heavily criticised by clubs and managers but with places on the elite FIFA list the same names continue to be allocated the most high profile fixtures.
