MERGER PROPOSAL: In Glasgow, Graeme Macpherson reported that one of the proposals on the table would involve "the merger of the SPL and SFL into one governing body," but Ogilvie remains unconvinced about the merits of such a plan. Ogilvie said, "There has been talk of that, but I don't know if it's the answer. We had one body in the past, and you still have to work out the governance and voting structures between the top division and the other decisions. At the start of this debate, I thought one body would be appropriate, but it's not the be all and end all" (HERALD SCOTLAND, 8/28). Also in Glasgow, Greig Cameron wrote Rangers supporters accused accounting firm Duff & Phelps that handled Rangers' administration of "providing poor value for creditors after its fees totalled £3.3M ($5.2M)." The firm reported it "had booked more than 8,300 hours of work at an average hourly rate" of £383 ($606) during the process so far (HERALD SCOTLAND, 8/28).
