Rangers involved in 42-club meeting amid murmurs of discontent over SPFL

Rangers have taken part in an SPFL meeting with all 42 member clubs as discussions continue around the coronavirus pandemic in Scotland.

Elite sport is allowed to continue through the pandemic – as things stand – but clubs operate under sanctions and protocols to allow this to happen.

However after Celtic travelled to a winter training camp in Dubai and returned with a positive test, it was restarted much discussion about football’s continuation amid the storm.

In the aftermath of Celtic’s trip to Dubai, football below Scottish Championship level was halted for three weeks as the lockdown looks to take effect in Scotland.

Clubs in the Scottish League One and Two would’ve voiced their own concerns at the meeting which at this point go way beyond the footballing and into the financial.

According to the Daily Record, the nation’s clubs will also be discussing the situation with a £20m bailout package which was promised by the Scottish Government.

That same report claims SFA chief Ian Maxwell has attributed the delay in the essential bail-out package to interest rates amid Brexit.

One club, Falkirk, has voiced major concerns over the governance of Scottish football in comments which echo the complaints of Rangers in the summer.

There’s an argument that the Gers should reignite this SPFL fuse and help carry out the urgent change which many feel is necessary for the Scottish game to progress.
