Two months and eight days after justice finally caught up on their Covidiots the club from Ibrox have called on the SFA to be open minded!
Back on February 13 five Ibrox stars attended a house party in the west end of Glasgow, the following day the law-breakers were given Fixed Penalties by Police Scotland as their employers launched an internal investigation.
Within 48 hours of news of Boli Bolingoli’s trip to Spain Celtic had two matches postponed, a further 16 days later the player was suspended for three matches.
In marked contrast there was no rush to deal with the Ibrox Covidiots, fortunately for Mister Gerrard Patterson was able to stand in for the injured James Tavernier.
After the appeals were rejected the Ibrox club stated:
We remain disappointed in the result. Furthermore, we believe this outcome highlights the inconsistency of decision making in the Scottish FA’s disciplinary process.
We are cognisant that the approach taken by other football associations across Europe has no resemblance to that of the Scottish FA. We urge the Scottish FA to be open minded to learn from other football authorities.
Patterson will miss four matches starting from Sunday’s Scottish Cup tie at home to St Johnston which will be refereed by Alan Muir.
