While FIFA probe Douglas Ross using their logo on political leaflets the SFA have been challenged to do the same.
The Scottish Tory leader was on duty at Ibrox today, his third appointment at the home of Steven Gerrard’s side in eight matches.
Clearly looking to maximise his football connections the Scottish Tories used a recent magazine interview featuring Dross wearing the SFA logo on their social media outlets.
The National reports:
SCOTTISH Tory leader Douglas Ross has been blasted for “brazenly attempting to use his football connections” to woo voters. The party recently shared an interview with FourFourTwo magazine on their social media. It featured a prominent picture of Ross in his linesman uniform, with SFA logo.
It comes just two weeks after we revealed that FIFA were investigating after the Tories used a picture of their leader wearing the international footballing body’s logo on a party leaflet.
Keith Brown, deputy leader of the SNP, said: “This is really low from Douglas Ross. Once again, he is brazenly attempting to use his football connections – this time with the Scottish FA badge – to try and gain credibility with voters.”
Next Sunday Ross will switch across the city to be on the line for Celtic’s Betfred Cup tie against Ross County. It will be Celtic’s sixth domestic home match and the third time Ross has been on duty. He was also an assistant at the Scottish Cup semi-final against Aberdeen.
In 14 rounds of weekend fixtures in Glasgow Ross has been an assistant seven times.
