Cowdenbeath finance director David Allan has called for the SPFL to make the season’s standings final and avoid clubs like Rangers finding themselves in a “Dallas scenario.”
The Fifers sit fourth in League Two and Allan doesn’t think the SPFL should replicate “Bobby Ewing’s dream season” and expect everyone to just forget that it happened.
Former Rangers director Donald Findlay QC is chairman of the Blue Brazil and had previously been quoted saying the league should just “put it on hold and leave it.”
“Whether it’s about the money or not, let’s just call it over.
“I am not one that goes for the void route. We have played 75 per cent of the season, surely that’s enough? Otherwise you are getting into the realms of the Dallas scenario – Bobby Ewing’s dream season where we just forget about it. I am not keen on that.
“We are fourth in the league, if we get fourth-placed money then that would be very helpful. We are not going to take legal action if we don’t get a play-off.”
Rangers and Hearts have both publicly voiced their opposition to awarding trophies based on the current standings, insisting it would damage the integrity of the game.
With football unlikely to resume before August at the earliest, the SPFL will have to find some sort of solution if games can’t get completed.
Whatever happens, there will be some clubs unhappy and it looks destined that the outcome of the title might well be decided in a courtroom.
