Celtic FC Willing To Take Financial Hit In Restructuring Of Scottish Football
Published January 11, 2013
LOSING HOPE: In Glasgow, Michael Grant wrote Lawwell "admitted the new structure would do nothing to improve the chances of any team winning the title other than Celtic and Rangers." Lawwell said, "The predictability of the outcome of any competition kills it and that's what happened here. Celtic and Rangers have been the biggest strength because we have generated the value, but some may also argue the biggest weaknesses because it's destroyed competition. This won't change things in that respect. You need a more radical solution in order to change that" (HERALD SCOTLAND, 1/10). In Glasgow, Keith Jackson reported former SFA President George Peat accused SFA CEO Stewart Regan and SPL CEO Neil Doncaster of "botching their big chance to save Scottish football." Peat "insisted the two Englishmen in the most powerful positions on Hampden’s sixth floor simply do not understand what it takes to run the game in this country" (DAILY RECORD, 1/10).
