Scottish Football League Dunfermline AFC In Danger To Entering Liquidation Monday
Published March 22, 2013
BACK-UP PLAN: In Glasgow, Gordon Parks reported Scottish Football League chiefs "are bracing themselves for a First Division promotion and relegation shambles if Dunfermline go bust." The prospect of being liquidated "would set in motion an SFL ruling that declares all of Dunfermline’s results this season null and void and would drastically alter the league." If HMRC's winding-up order is acted upon next week, Scottish football "would face an unprecedented situation that would see leaders Morton automatically handed an extra two-point advantage over second-placed Partick Thistle due to points gained or lost against the Pars this season." At the bottom end, Airdrie’s "fight against the drop would be all but over as they would be struck with a four-point deduction" (DAILY RECORD, 3/21).
