    When Dingwall said “the wildest and most vile elements of their supporters” he must have been looking into a (very big) mirror. If, as Boozer Brown claims, the buying of Ibrox pies entitles the purchaser to a share in Sevco 5588 then Mr Dingwall will be the majority shareholder.

    The stripping of titles and cups from RFC (1872-2012) and possible criminal prosecutions are yet to come.

    The most important word in this whole debate, and one seldom seen in the mainstream media, is “corruption”. If you take money in order to overlook widespread and longstanding law-breaking on the part of another party, that is corruption.

    It’s not just about sporting integrity. It’s not simply a question of cash or principles, as I’ve seen it put. It’s a question of do you have a system of rules which mean something, or do you have corruption. In this instance, corruption that would be colluded in by the entirety of Scottish professional football, and would irrevocably infect that body.

    I have followed football for forty years and in that time I’ve seen all sorts of cheating and corruption. I expect to see it. It doesn’t surprise me. But I have never, ever, seen anything like this: a huge, concerted and open effort on the part of a country’s football establishment to blackmail and bully most of its members in order to corruptly assist just one of them. It’s extraordinary. Open, legitmised corruption. And there are just a few days left for people to stop it prevailing.
