Ten days after calling for an independent enquiry into an SPFL vote and the suspensions of Neil Doncaster and Rod McKenzie not one club has backed the request from Douglas Park.
A statement was made by the Interim Ibrox chairman on Saturday April 11 shortly after Scot Gardiner of Inverness Caley Thistle shared details of his WhatsApp chats with Radio Scotland.
Faithfully following on from Gardiner’s comments and the Ibrox statement the call for an inquiry dominated the following days newspapers.
On Saturday, April 18 in interviews with Radio Scotland, Ann Budge and Dave Cormack both agreed with the call for an independent investigation but neither Aberdeen or Hearts have made any move to set up an enquiry into the SPFL vote.
Doncaster remains in place as CEO of the SPFL, today he spoke up for the economic benefit that football provides across Scotland.
On April 12 Park told his club website:
As a member club, we are disturbed by the evidence that has been presented and feel there is no choice but to call for an independent investigation into this entire matter. Each member of the SPFL board has a duty to its members to ensure that such an investigation is instructed without delay.
All we ask for is equality and respect. In the past few days, we have become alarmed at a seeming lack of even-handedness and fair play from the SPFL. This is surely unacceptable and, if substantiated, must be remedied.
Other member clubs, who have seen the evidence we hold, share our concerns. We call for the suspension of the SPFL’s Chief Executive, Neil Doncaster and its legal adviser, Rod McKenzie while an independent investigation is conducted
A week ago the SPFL awarded their lower leagues titles to Dundee United, Raith Rovers and Cove Rangers leaving Park whistling in the dark as he waits on Celtic winning their ninth successive title.
Despite the claim from Park no other member club is sharing his concern over the vote.
