Tom English is suggesting that “If SPFL really wants transparency (Insert LMAO emoji)
No they don’t really want transparency,and it should be the first thing on any journalists list to find out why.

I kept having an inkling it was from the CW court case,so had a read of as much of JD court tweets as i could find. So then started to see if i could find all the JD Tweets in one place,could only see a byline for day one,then started to find more.
Then started to read web page after web page of D&P’s getting the administration gig then onto Duff & Phelps cleared of conflict in Rangers administration which then led me to look at Paul Clark and David Whitehouse then onto David Grier then onto BDO and had a read of more stuff, then dug out some old newspapers to see if i could find anything, then onto youtube and somehow have ended up knowing how to make skulls out of milk cartons.
i know even i don’t know how i got there16

Seen this on twitter (The Clumps)and looked it up on the court rollsCOURT OF SESSION  CALLING LIST Wednesday 4th October 4Walter Ferguson Smith, 26 Blackhall Drive, Helensburgh AG Neil Caisley, 7 Heath Lane, Codicote, Herts &cDrummond Miller LLP———-Is this the walter we know?
They took their time reporting on this
Former Rangers boss Walter Smith sues financial expert over pension cashThe Ibrox legend has started proceedings against Neil Caisley over money paid into a fund during his time as Everton manager.
Former Scotland manager Smith is suing him over money paid into a pension fund while he was in charge of Everton in the 90s.
Smith declined to comment on the case, which was listed last week at the court in Edinburgh. It is understood another man is also being pursued by him.
A source said: “Two individuals are being pursued, Mr Caisley and another man, who did some work for him on his pension when he was at Everton. It’s money Walter feels he’s due in relation to that period in his career.”
Caisley, 59, of Codicote, Hertfordshire, was unavailable for comment last week.
The law firm involved in his action, Drummond Miller, also declined to comment.

If, during an investigation of alleged breaches of the SFA’s regulations, he finds evidence of criminal behaviour (e.g. fraud), he would be compelled to pass on his findings to the police.  Any related SFA proceedings would need to be suspended until the suspected criminal acts have been processed by the Crown Office and Procurator Fiscal Service – and potentially by the courts.
If this was to happen? would the SFA be compelled to release a statement to let everyone know proceedings are to be suspended

It would take all scrutiny away from the club and could leave the chairman role to someone more respected such as Alistair Johnston.
You do know Alistair Johnston.was on the board during the EBT years and  Johnston admits the other ongoing tax probe could leave Rangers with a bill they cannot afford to pay.

I am a Celtic shareholder and if it was up to me (which it is not), I would tell the SFA here and now that Celtic Park is unavailable for any future fixture.  However I know that will not happen, but I doubt there is anything they could do to force Celtic to allow them use of the stadium.  
The SFA board is due to meet in late January to consider its findings and, although no final decision is expected at that stage, it will shape Hampden’s future.

Agreed… but just where would the SFA call home?
15) With recent coverage surrounding the SFA and the Hampden lease expiring in 2020, there’s asuspicion that the SFA will take internationals, finals etc to Parkhead. Can we expect the board tovigorously push Ibrox for these fixtures and thus create another important revenue stream?The Executive is in close dialogue with the SFA with regards to the situation at Hampden.

Hope all the other clubs executives are in close dialogue with the SFA with regards to the situation at Hampden.

There is absolutely no reason why games can’t be played in Aberdeen, Edinburgh, Glasgow, or anywhere else with a stadium suitable for a specific match.
Agreed… but just where would the SFA call home?

Most, not all. One also wonders who pays for the upkeep of the stadium and other associated costs.
The Spiders, who remain an amateur club and are celebrating their 150th anniversary, say comments made by SFA chief executive Stewart Regan to BBC Scotland had caused them “great concern”.
They said in a website statement that they “would seek confirmation from the Scottish FA that they have fulfilled their responsibilities, under the present lease, to maintain the stadium and further detailed evidence to support Mr Regan’s statement”.
