St Mirren chairman John Needham has been fined £6,000 by the SFA for some tweets about the law-breaking of Ibrox fans earlier this year.

While Needham has been hammered no action has been taken against the Ibrox club for multiple breaches of the protocols such as players running to law breaking fans after a win over St Mirren or Steven Gerrard screaming out a dressing room window to law breaking fans.

On March 7 Ibrox players celebrated with fans packed outside of Murray Park then car shared off to parties.

As far back as July 2020 almost a full team of untested players enjoyed a closed doors friendly against Dundee United. A match official was refused access to Murray Park but no action was taken for putting opponents at risk.

This afternoon St Mirren stated:

Following on from the SFA disciplinary hearing for John Needham, the outcome is as follows: £6000 fine applied with £5000 to be paid immediately and £1000 suspended until the end of Season 2021/22, should there be a further breach of Disciplinary Rules 71/73/77 in this time period. St Mirren Football Club will be making no further comment.

In April 2020 Douglas Park made threats during a phone call to Neil Doncaster while Stewart Robertson revealed confidential details of commercial contracts, no action was taken.

St Mirren are now a fan-owned club.
