FOOD BILL DEBT: In Glasgow, Euan McLean reported furious Scottish Premier League Kilmarnock fans "called on Michael Johnston to resign" Saturday night as the under-fire chairman denied claims the club face a winding-up order. A local businessman "has instructed lawyers to recover" a £16,000 ($25,300) debt for food supplied to Killie’s Park Hotel. However, the defiant Johnston insisted that he did not "fear the prospect of sheriff officers banging on his door" Sunday, when a petition could be served demanding the debt is settled. Supporters Association chief Sandy Armour fears the club is "on the brink of administration." Armour said: "This should set alarm bells ringing. It sends out a very negative message about the state of the club" (DAILY RECORD, 1/20).
PROTEST PLAN: In London, Dominic Fifield reported "Mauricio Pochettino will walk headfirst into a supporters' protest" when he takes charge of EPL side Southampton for the first time against Everton on Monday after the club acted ruthlessly by sacking Manager Nigel Adkins to safeguard its "long-term ambitions." Fans "have strongly critised the decision and intend to wave white handkerchiefs after five minutes of Monday's televised game" (GUARDIAN, 1/18).
