Cockwomble: 'no case to answer' in the wake of sectarian singing


Recommended Posts

SPFL chief executive Neil Doncaster said that he hoped to have the match delegate's report on the game at Stark's Park on Friday night within the next 48 hours


In a statement released today the head of the Scottish Professional Football League, said: "It remains the SPFL's position that if it can be established that clubs have done everything required in overall management of the event pre-match, during the game and post-match then they have no case to answer."


While stating his "anger" over the "distasteful, shameful and selfish actions of a mindless minority", he said that the governing body would maintain the same stance taken in the wake of the recent Old Firm League Cup semi-final.


The statement continued: "But setting that aside, the vast majority of decent fans will share a strong degree of anger and despair that the good name of Scottish football is once again being dragged through the mud by the distasteful, shameful and selfish actions of a mindless minority who seem hell bent on indulging in outdated and offensive behaviour.


"I know that clubs, players and many others across the game share this frustration.


"While we can't comment further until we review the match delegate report, we will work with our clubs and the police to do everything within our powers to act against those involved in such unacceptable conduct and behaviour.


"However ultimately we also need the supporters to play their part to help stamp out such behaviour."
