Queen's Park President Hutchison Warns Scottish FA About Dangers Of Moving

The SFA's 20-year lease at Hampden Park expires in '20.
Ditching Hampden Park as its national stadium would leave the Scottish FA "at the mercy of those renting out their grounds," it was warned, according to Clive Lindsay of the BBC. The governing body is "considering its options" as its 20-year lease with Scottish League One club Queen's Park ends in '20. Scottish Premiership side Rangers' Ibrox Stadium, Celtic Park and Murrayfield are "among the alternatives." Queen's Park President Alan Hutchison said, "If they move out of Hampden, the SFA are in danger of leaving themselves hostages to Rangers and Celtic. And that, as well as losing the neutrality, to me means it's a no brainer -- Scotland needs a national stadium." The SFA board is due to meet in late January to consider its findings and "although no final decision is expected at that stage, it will shape Hampden's future." In addition to the Old Firm, Scottish Rugby has given a presentation about what it can offer at its own national stadium in Edinburgh (BBC, 1/1).
